'Squid Game' is Netflix's top show in more than 90 countries

Netflix has secured a global hit with the drama series Squid Game, occupying the number one spot in home country Korea, the United States and 90 other countries around the world. 
 
The feat follows the streaming service's decision to focus on global content, rather than select locations.
 
Squid Game is on track to become the biggest show in Netflix's history in any language, beating out favourites Bridgerton and Lupin.
 
The popularity of the series has resulted in internet connectivity problems in South Korea.
 
One of the country's chief internet service providers, SK Broadband, is suing Netflix because of the added strain Squid Game has put on its service, increasing costs of network traffic and maintenance.
 
Based on the season's cliffhanger, fans have been calling for a season 2.
