The VIPs Explained | Squid Game Explained

Explaining who the VIPs are from Squid Game Season 1 Episode 7 “VIPS” and Season 1 Episode 9 “One Lucky Day” (2021). [Spoilers] In this video I talk in-depth about the VIPs line delivery and dialogue, explaining why it’s clunky and at times 110% certified “Cringe” by analyzing some interviews with the actors who played the VIPs. At times, I also justify their performances as well. I talk about who the VIPs are, why they watch the games and their relation to Number 1 (Oh Il-nam or The Host). By the way, Sang-woo went to SNU. I also quickly discuss Hwang Dong-hyuk talking about what will be in the next season of Squid Game, as well as him confirming season 2.

  1. Cut some slack is the same as give some slack…. I feel like I've heard it more in context of "oh, c'mon…give me some slack". So yeah, give would be ok too.

  2. My theory is that the man talking with Front man in the phone was some kinda of mega boss of the games, since, if the theory is true, there are other games across the world, so, Oh Il Nam (the old man) could just be the creator of the Korea game, and therefore, there could be the creator of the concept of the game, the boss of the bosses, maybe being some very influent people to keep the games running in secret, and of course, keep so many infiltrated functionaries and getting all that money.

  3. I’m trying to imagine american squid game

    Four square but it’s a bomb lmao

  4. Its a beautiful number sixty nine Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha Hahahahaha

  5. The thing is that the front man can’t report the games because the VIPS will kill his family so the front man wants his brother to report it

  6. Your interpretation of capitalism was perfect.

  7. This show is evil. Not worth polluting your brain with. Predicting programming much.

  8. Tira essa mulher daqui eiiiiiiiiii John eiiioi

  9. 😅😅o que essa mulher tá fazendo aqui ?

  10. "By the way, Sang-woo went to SNU" hahahahahaha

  11. The exploitation of capitalism is actually corporatism, and the exploitation of socialism is communism.

  12. Oh Il Nam is very cunning, interesting because his mask was the rabbit. 🐰

  13. I didn't mind the VIPs' way of speaking. It reminds me of Frasier and his bro Niles. They speak pretentiously to look very rich. these VIPs are very rich, so they've adopted a "wealthy-sounding" heir of speaking.

  14. I have a feeling that the VIPs will also most likely return in the Squid Game season 2 and have a larger role where it will eventually reveals the identity of the VIPs and how they became the guests of the game.

    Also regarding the mysterious phone caller, some fans theorize that there's another rank even above the host in the game organization since we know that the game probably not only happen in Korea (with each of the game presumably has its own host) and seen in several clues during the conversations like the fact that the Frontman always speaks to the phone caller in English, when he informed them that there will be no disturbance when the VIPs arrive, and when he mentioned the host (Il-nam) to the phone caller which infers that it's not Il-nam or one of the VIPs so according to the theory, it is some sort of the supreme leader of the game who organizes and oversees all the games around the world while the hosts are only in charge of each branch of the game.

    Probably this mysterious phone caller will also become the new villain in the next season with a foreign actor/actress who will portray this character like the VIPs.

  15. The vip actors will never get out of house becauze of shame.Sorry for being rude.

  16. There is no middle ground or reasoning with a system like capitalism Bryce.

    It is designed to exploit lower classes of people and any “compromise” with capitalism just strengthens the system and still produces inequality (i.e. the New Deal and LBJ’s Great Society).

    You clearly don’t get the issues with capitalism Bryce when you still try to appease a corrupt system like capitalism in your videos that has been shown to never negotiate in good faith.

    If you’re going to keep taking the white moderate path of least resistance to appease capitalists and conservatives who also watch your videos, then don’t be too surprised when people tell you don’t understand anything about capitalism or economics lol

  17. It bothers me how every single one of them acts like a gay stereotype. Seems pretty disingenuous to make the mustache twirling villains of your show about social injustice caricatures of a marginalized group…

  18. What needed to be explained? They're white men. End of explanation.
    Whites are the villains of every story now. Even in a racially homogenous country thousands of miles from any white people, on a fictional game show set in Korea, run by Koreans, and played by Koreans, we still need to shoehorn in whites as the ultimate villains somehow. And let's make them all rich perverts and rapists, so we can go WAY over the top with the evilness of these white villains. Lather, rinse, repeat. Woke Culture in all its glory.
    There, that's the REAL explanation of the VIPs in Squid Game.

  19. I like how he said he want lecturing people about economics and then went on an economics rant for like 1/3rd of the video.

  20. If you did a "96", you'd have two people shitting on the back of each other's heads!

  21. I liked the fact that the VIPs spoke so strangely. It fed into the rich soulless narrative. Out of touch, cowardly, and just altogether different from any other human.

  22. This is film theory’s job. He’s destroying an 11 million subscriber YouTube channel

  23. The mysterious man on the phone in episode 7 is player number 1 because if you go to the video and see number 1 in a smart dress in 4:14, he must be one and watching through it will show one VIP with grey hair.

  24. 69 or 96 is a sexual describe, Kamasutra.😅

  25. A good video. I had not thought about how difficult it is, for an English speak to act in a Korean program.

  26. There jokes are so funny that I forgot to laugh but these goofy people carry not funny jokes that people don’t even laugh about

  27. ♡︎𝙼𝚘𝚘𝚗𝚕𝚒𝚐𝚑𝚝♡︎ says:

    About the VIPs the most frustrating thing abt it was when VIP 4 wanted the detective to '"satisfy" him

  28. VIPS are literally the Rothschilds that masquerade for the Surrealist Ball party in 1972. It's the Illuminati

  29. Honestly, what’s so bad about stereotypes? Anybody with two brain cells understands that stereotypes don’t apply to an entire group (or even most of that group, in some cases). But let’s be 100% honest…many stereotypes are based in truth. How in the hell do they become stereotypes if a certain portion of that population doesn’t exhibit such behavior. Just take your lumps and move on, man…it’s not a big deal…

  30. 69 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  31. I screamed ayo on the vip scene💀
    I love being 13 lol 😆

  32. There’s probably something like that in real life, but instead in an island where the VIP touch inappropriately and rape underage girls and boys… I bet Joe Biden and his son Hunter are part of it.

  33. Hey guys, I dont think this guy likes capitalism. can't you tell????

  34. All of the VIPs were white they also spoke English not Korean. The VIP scenes were the only scenes without any subtitles. Mistranslation was bad in this show however I'm fairly sure that was intentional.

  35. I worked on seasons 2 and 3 which were filmed back to back and can confirm that there will be a much deeper dive into the VIPs that the viewer will be taken through as the seasons develop

  36. Capitalism works for everyone if you live within your means, budget properly, and don’t believe what idiots on the internet say about what does and doesn’t work as far as economics.

  37. My first theory on the v.i.p.s were that…
    The V.I.P.S were original squid game winners from the 80s and 90s.

  38. Apart from that dirty pig, i found the V.I.P's to be very interesting tbh. And their English was supposed to be that bad, they are all from different country's (The V.I.P's). They where also accurate very rich people. Sadly.
