As a mathematician, Player 062 relies on his analytical skills to help in the games, getting him as far as Round 5. He is able to quickly calculate his probability of survival in this game. Once realizing the odds are against him, however, he loses his composure and takes chances by rushing through.
In his actor Lee Doo Seok’s inteview (here), he says Player 062 is self-righteous and mean character.
Player 062 was a high school math teacher and an avid soccer player. He got big debt from failing for bitcoin investment (his actor says in the interview) and chose to enter the Squid Game. After waking up in a large room with 455 other people, he signed a contract and took his photo. He managed to survive the first game, Red Light, Green Light, after most of the contestants had been wiped out. Afterwards, like everyone else, he was shaken by the deaths of the contestants, when the prize money was finally revealed. A vote was held if the game should continue, but the majority voted no. However, those who were willing to return could, and he returned, along with most of the other players.
He managed to survive the second game, Sugar Honeycombs, and the third game, Tug of War. Before the fourth game Marbles, he was discussing to Seong Gi-hun how useful he can be as a partner. However his comment on Player 001 made Gi-hun choose 001 instead of him. He chose his partner, Player 130, for the marbles challenge and defeated him. In the Glass Stepping Stones challenge, he chose the number 3, which meant he would be the third to go.
When it was the turn of player 062, he calculated how there was very little chance of him getting them all right, (1/215, or 1 in 32,768 chance) and so he sprinted ahead, managing to guess three glass panels correctly before finally jumping on the wrong glass panel and fall to his death, Which also caused the death of Player 021 for being too fast.
