*screams* PULL, PULL!
Player 245 before his death

Team 7 falling to their deaths

Player 245 was a contestant who participated in the 33rd Squid Game in 2020, being eliminated in the third game of the competition. He appears in the Season One episode "Stick to the Team".


After accumulating large amounts of debt, Player 245 chose to enter a high-risk competition to win money, being picked up and sedated by Squid Game staff and taken to the island where the game takes place. He then woke up in a large room with 455 other people and signed a contract and took his photo.

Player 245 managed to survive the first game, Red Light, Green Light, and was one of many players to return after voting. He subsequently managed to pass the second game and survived the Special Round that took place in the middle of the night, though he sustained a head injury during the fighting.


During Tug of War, Player 245 formed and led a group called Team 7 for the upcoming game. His team was put up against Team 1, Jang Deok-su's team, with the pair being the first ones to compete. Team 7 was quickly overpowered by Deok-su's team, which was entirely made up of strong men, and Player 245 and the rest of his team were pulled off of the platform and fell to their deaths.
