The Guards of Squid Game Explained | Squid Game Explained

The Guards of Squid Game (2021) Explained. A quick comprehensive guide and analysis of the guards/staff in Squid Game. In this video I will also be pointing out things like the meaning behind the shapes and hidden details. As well as debunking theories like whether or not choosing a red square meant that you were going to be a guard and choosing a blue square meant that you were going to be a player. So who are the guards? Find out in this video!

    Just like Alice in Borderland. Once the game ended (no more puzzle left), people who survived can become the puzzle maker for new upcoming players. But everytime players won puzzle, the person who made the puzzle will die.

    Yes, I thought the same thing at first - they have to be pretty well paid for doing such less than glamorous jobs in less than glamorous conditions even though some of them had to resort to side hustles like the organ harvesting business. It makes me wonder that maybe they are there against their will and kept in check through fear of their lives. That if they try to escape, they will be tracked down, so they can't really escape. I guess it's a combination of both. It kind of reminds me of how Jeffrey Epstein and his associates first recruited girls and used them through paying them and through coercion and fear to make them recruit other girls.

    Director shutdown the red blue theory it was a reference to an old folktale about a ghost in a bathroom that offered people blue or red tissue but would either way be a player so the card theory isn't true:( they're probably previous winners

    Not related to the guards but to the first game and how half the people died in it. What really bothers me about it is that you clearly saw a lot of people that didn't run in the initial panic get killed because someone ran into them and either jostled them or knocked them over.

    7:14 I disagree. If the frontman or some other staff member saw that they are calling from a cop station, they probably do this : "Hey, they are calling from a police station. Lets forward this to some old lady."

    Your theory about red and blue squares was debunked by Ho Yeon Jung in youtube Vanity video. It is not related to the Matrix or whether someone will be a player or guard. In the video she says the director was referencing an urban legend in Korea about a ghost in the bathroom that offers you red or blue toilet paper.

    idk if anyone remembers this but when the police starts working as a guard,every night he hears some other guard coughing.He ignores it on the first night but on the second night he tries to understand it and types something on his phone in the morse code.I feel like that will be explored more in the next season.

      Vor 2 Tage

      no I don't think so. the guard who was coughing was number 28, giving the cop signal to join him in that organ sale thing. that's why the cop went with him the next night, because now he knew what those coughing meant.

    How did the "organ snatcher" guards come to be?! The 2 circle (scuba) guys knew what each other looked like. There were 2 circles (yes, 1 was a cop). 2 triangles. 1 square. They weren't allowed to communicate w/each other, yet they were well organized.

    Guards were gangsters with proven track records. Squid Game was one of many businesses run by one or more cartels. Like the game contestants, the VIPs competed for the privilege of gambling in the game

    1:38 All the games are SUPER unethical. The only reason the players even are there is that their other life is so bad it's worth risking it all for the smallest chance of success. The game organizers deliberately prayed on that desperation and lower status in the real world.

    My debunk for the card theory is that the salesmen pick red to force the players to pick blue, Symbolising the salesmen's association with Squid Game, and showing that any player turned guard was always a player at one point.
