It was yesterday when veteran Hollywood director Steven Spielberg expressed his love and admiration for Squid Game which took over the mainstream on Netflix last year. The filmmaker was happy that a show changed the math of how the casting was considered in Hollywood. But looks like his comments are taken in some other way by many of the netizens who have decided to call him out.

For the unversed, Squid Game created by Hwang Dong-hyuk became the top most successful shows on Netflix with its release. The show shifted the focus of the world to Korean content. Steven Spielberg in his latest comments applauded that and congratulated Netflix for giving unknown faces the chance to shine on the screen.

But him calling the Squid Game cast ‘unknown’ did upset a lot of netizens from South Korea and some other parts of the world. While the filmmaker actually meant unknown to Hollywood, seems like it hasn’t translated well with the people who are offended. Read on to know.

Reacting to Steven Spielberg’s comment about Squid Game, a netizen wrote, “calling anyone who has years of experience and work unknown is disrespectful. its like when people finally started to pay attention to viola davis when shes been around for yeeeears and is so so talented. these are veterans who ppl have finally started to pay attention to”

Another wrote, “did he really think that Lee Jung Jae is a random unknown person?? what kinda joke is this???? He’s LEE JUNG JAE for God’s sake!!!!!!”
