‘Squid Game’ Event

Three UCI departments — UCI Program in Global Languages and Communication, UCI Center for Critical Korean Studies and UCI International Student Excellence Programs — gathered together to host an event based on Netflix’s new television series entitled “Squid Game.”

Students had the opportunity to discuss with Kyung Hyun Kim, Professor of East Asian Studies, about the successes and impacts of the new show, as well as the opportunity to participate in Korean games featured in the show.
