He then begins playing heads down, thumbs up – a game which involves guessing which person touched your thumb.

Squid Game has soared to popularity globally ever since its release last month – with Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos saying it has a a ‘very good chance’ of becoming the streamer’s most popular show yet.

The South Korean series is a survival thriller set in modern-day Seoul, where a group of 456 people are invited to play a series of children’s games with the chance to win a huge amount of money – but if you lose in the game, you lose your life.

On Tuesday, News.com.au claimed many viewers are watching the hugely popular series the ‘wrong’ way as they are watching either the English-language dub or reading the closed caption subtitles.

The closed caption subtitles simply sub the English dub of the series, instead of conveying the official Korean to English subtitles.

For non-Korean speakers, the official subtitled version is recommended for the best experience.

Kiwi director Taika Waititi has even weighed into the debate, urging Netflix users to avoid the English dub.

‘You don’t have to watch Squid Game dubbed in English,’ he tweeted to his million followers this week.
