We may be in debt, sir, but that doesn't justify killing us all!

The Prize Pool Remainder After Player 271 Was Killed By Jang-Deok-su

Player 271 was a contestant in the 33rd Squid Game in 2020.


Player 271 was in heavy debt and chose to enter a high-risk competition to win money. 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 staff congratulated the surviving players, he and many others decide to call out the staff for the style of emulation. He noted they were all in debt but they should not be killed for that. Fortunately Cho Sang-woo remembered the third clause which allowed the remaining players to vote on terminating the games. A vote was held if the game should continue, and 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. When everyone queued for the meal that had been provided to them, he was one of the last. However, despite there originally having been enough for everyone, there was not enough left for several players, including Player 271. Player 198 then revealed that she saw Player 101 and his group had cut the queue and took seconds.

Despite already dying before the Special Round, his icon was seen at Tug Of War.
