#Why Pakistan is Upset About Squid Game

With international success comes international scrutiny

]With Squid Games international success you would think that everyone would love the drama, I mean what isn't there to like. However Pakistan isn't feeling to love. The reason why is that an Indian actor portrayed himself to be Pakistiani. Many Pakistanis believe that the Indian actor should portray an Indian character. Considering the bad relationship between Pakistanis and Indians, Squid Game producers could have definitely done a better job. Also in KDramas the trope regarding foreigners are if they are not white, they are always stupid and easily outwitted and thus was the case in Squid Game. If Korean media companies really want international success, they are going to have to do better!
