Hwang Dong-hyuk is the writer and director of all nine episodes of the television series Squid Game. He had started working on the script for the show as early as 2008, and was rejected multiple times by different studios, some claiming the plot was too unrealistic and grotesque, with him even fearing that the script would be too difficult to understand, before finally being picked up by Netflix. At one point, he had to sell his laptop due to financial struggles. He also lost 6 teeth due to stress. Despite the success of Squid Game, Dong-hyuk has not gained much wealth, as he was only paid the amount stated in the contract.
