    27 Photos Of The "Squid Game" Cast IRL That Prove They Are The Best Cast

    All I want in life is to have a girls night and mojitos with Jung Ho-yeon and Lee Yoo-mi.

    Like many other Squid Game fans, I binge-watched the series soon after it came out, meaning that I'm now in a state of perpetual sadness until another season is confirmed.


    To help ease that pain a little, as well as the emotional exhaustion of seeing our fave characters perish, here are some adorable behind-the-scenes photos of the cast being best friends.

    4. When Joo-ryoung, Yoo-mi and Jung Ho-yeon (Kang Sae-byeok – Player 67) blessed us with the existence of this photo, which now makes me think of what Squid Game would have been like if these badass characters had teamed up.

    5. And now I'm demanding that Netflix releases an alternative Squid Game POV, where we see them win and succeed.

    The way these actors support one another is the best! It's most likely one of the reasons why Squid Game was so incredible β€” the cast was perfect and they had brilliant chemistry.
