Deadly competition and survival game dramas have taken all over Netflix. They are very popular in Eastern Asia, but they are currently taking all over the world as the fresh plots have become very appealing to the fans.
Netflix’s Squid Game V/s Alice In Borderland
If you like Netflix’s Squid Game and are looking for another “deadly competition” series, Alice in Borderland is a show for you. Released way before Squid Game, Alice in Borderland is just like Squid Game on Netflix. The location of Alice in Borderland is entirely Tokyo, but Squid Game participants are kept in a man-made complex.
Squid Game and Alice in Borderland have very similar concepts. But, the thematic elements of Squid Game sets it apart from all other dramas and movies. The show does not focus too much on the game. Instead, it gives us an insight into the characters and their struggles. Fans have become gotten attracted to Netflix’s Squid Game because of this as they can also relate to their struggles in this real world.
Alice in Borderland’s setting has participants trapped against their will. On the other hand, Squid Game participants choose to take part to win money because of their financial crisis.
Fan reactions to Alice in Borderland and Squid Game
Squid Game of Netflix is a Korean show and Alice in Borderland is a Japanese show, but both of them depend upon “deadly” survival competition. They are both suspense thrillers where the games turn dangerous. Can you imagine the cost of failure in this game? It is not just a penalty or punishment, it’s “death” – which is inevitable.
Both the series have a male lead developing a team of misfits to survive in the game. The only contrast between both the dramas is that Netflix’s Squid Game has a cash prize in the end, but Alice in Borderland has only “life” as the prize.
