Netflix's 'Squid Game' inspires copycat violence in kids - DW News.

Child protection authorities have begun warning parents to keep their kids away from "Squid Game." The Korean drama is Netflix's most popular show ever, drawing 130 million viewers in its first month alone, but it's very violent.

The show features cash-strapped characters competing against each other in various challenges for a chance to pay off their debts. If they lose, they're brutally executed. The show is fiction, but the games in it are based on real children's games, and some observers say the violence is spilling over into real life.
