Squid Game watchers fixated on the Netflix series are sending cash to the genuine ledger highlighted in the last scene.
In the last scene of the series, the winner figures out how to get away from the games with his life and is given a bank card stacked with the financial reward.
Turns out the numbers on the card match a genuine record having a place with one of the show’s makers, and fans have been sending cash to the account since the show showed up on the streaming platform.
Addressing local media, South Korean chief Hwang Dong-hyuk said that the creators of the show have since chosen to close the account.
He said: “I heard that the producer has been receiving deposits in the amount of 456 KRW (£0.3/$0.38) from people who watched the show.
“To prevent further deposits from happening the production team decided to close the account to avoid potential issues in the future.”
Fans are sending 456 KRW because the winner of the games was referred to as player 456 during his time in the games.
A telephone number highlighted in the show has been getting calls from outsiders. The owner of the number, a Korean man, as of late stood up in the wake of being assaulted with calls.
He said he was getting 4,000 calls per day since Squid Game arrived on Netflix last month, driving the platform to change scenes with the number.
