In Squid Game, the Front Man stabs Jun-Ho in the shoulder. While he could have killed him, he fired just one bullet that could not be that fatal. The Front Man revealed that he had no issue with killing his staff but hits Jun-Ho in the shoulder. As a result, he could have got injured and not dead.

Many fans believed that there were plenty of players who wanted to quit the game before the marble round. While the game took place in pairs, there was one odd man who left out, he was Il-Nam. He would have got dragged off without any questions just before the VIPs’ arrival. But due to Gi-Hun’s unpredictability, the plan failed. As a result, Il-Nam failed to make a smooth exit.

Right. The contest in Korea was the best.

Thus, it looks like the Squid Game organization could be international. Else, why would the VIPs mention Korea? It looks like there are some other teams and contestants to compare and face-off against.

It is highly possible that if Squid Game 2 releases, it could include a USA division as well or probably a UK division, and so on. It highly makes sense as the organization is very powerful.

Who Are The VIPs

What if the employee who meets with Gi-Hun in the final episode is actually associated with the organization? A clue to this theory is hidden in a dialog where the employee states “VIPs like you.” At a point in the game, it was mentioned that the VIPs spectate the game as they don’t have anything to do with their money. However, it doesn’t mean that every game-winner could be a VIP or vice versa. More evidence to this theory accumulates from the fact that Jun-Ho’s brother, who was once a contender in the game, became the Front Man.
