Squid Game was the biggest show of 2021 and has been rightly cleaning up at awards shows recently. We saw it win big at the SAG Awards last week and now it’s repeated that success at the 2022 Independent Spirit Awards, with Lee Jung-jae picking up the ‘Best male performance in a scripted series’ for his performance as Seong Gi-hun in Netflix’s popular psychological-horror drama.

The unlikely hero begins the show as a cowardly and debt-ridden loser, but as his friends fall to the game’s lethal tricks his luck, intelligence, and cunning give him an edge. What further amps up his likeability as a character is that despite the colossal ball of money hanging over his head he never loses his innate kindness.
