‘Squid Game’ VIP Cast Reacts To Critics Of Their Game

A number of actors from squid game have responded to criticism over their performance on Netflix’s hit show.

In an interview with The Guardianthe four “VIPs” who appear on the show as English-speaking, mask-wearing billionaires have addressed a backlash for their “on stilt” performances.

“I’m not complaining baby!” actor Geoffrey Giuliano told the publication, adding: “I’m on the hottest show in the world. I got a fanmail. Just today I got a woman who said to me: “Send me your autograph. So I did, and two hours later she sent me a picture where she had “Geoffrey Giuliano, VIP four” tattooed on her forearm. There was also sexual invitations, from men and women.

Another actor said the experience was “a bit difficult” after working as an actor in Korea since 2014.

“I have extreme clinical depression, so it’s been a little difficult,” Daniel C Kennedy said. “At first I was disgusted by the comments but, with time and distance and honest self-reflection, I’ve been better able to filter the comments into things I can use to improve. next time, about things that are bound to come when you’re part of a project that gets global recognition.

John D Michaels, who starred as “VIP one,” added context to the show by saying the cast didn’t receive scripts for the entire show, only their scenes.

“We were all wearing very heavy plaster masks and were sitting on couches at least 20 to 30 feet from the nearest VIP,” he continued. “We all had to vaguely shout our lines into the air, which added to the eerie tone of the delivery.”

He also explained that the action on squid game and the wider Korean drama is purposely heightened, which may shock non-Korean audiences.

“Whether watching with a dubbed or subtitled version, people who don’t speak Korean don’t have the understanding to fully judge a Korean actor’s performance,” he explained. “What might be cartoonish or expansive about them gets lost in translation, whereas VIPs had no such luxury.”

In a four-star review by squid game, NME wrote: “Juxtaposing the innocence of these childish games with the insidious belief that relentless and fierce competition is the only way for modern adults to survive, squid game presents a powerful microcosm of capitalist society.
