After grabbing eyeballs all around the globe, Squid Game, a South Korean drama web series has become Netflix’s most popular series ever, drawing 111 million fans since its debut less than four weeks ago, informed the OTT giant, on Tuesday.

Netflix took to its Twitter handle and wrote, "Squid Game has officially reached 111 million fans- making it our biggest series launch ever."

Squid Game, which topped the charts in over 80 countries, has gained momentum right after its release, due to its positive word of mouth, critical acclaim, and social media craze. 

Netflix's web series Bridgerton had reached 82 million households on its debut.

Talking about the show, Squid Game is a survival thriller based in modern-day Seoul, where several people burdened with heavy debt pitted against each other to play simple children's games to win millions or die during the process.

Meanwhile, Netflix in February this year already announced that it is planning to invest $500 million this year alone on movies and web series produced in South Korea.
