Squid Game is a mesmerizing show, which manages to keep you hooked with its unique plot and cast. The show revolves around people who are badly in debt, desperate for a way out.
Taking advantage of their desperation, a group of ‘rich people makes participants take part in ‘childhood games’ in return for money. The only catch is that if they lose, they will be killed immediately.
One of the only non-Korean characters in the show is Ali Abdul. He is an immigrant, who is desperate to earn a livelihood for his child and wife. So, having nothing else to do, he takes part in the Squid Game.
It is evident that Ali is too gullible, and kind to win the twisted game. He is eventually deceived by his ‘partner’ and is killed.
The innocence and kindness of Ali won him the support of viewers. He became one of the most loved characters of the show.
