After the Games are cancelled and the competitors return home, many realise they have missed an opportunity to improve their lives, and take up the offer to rejoin the game. Player number 001, Oh Il-nam (Oh Young-soo) an elderly man with a brain tumour, is picked up from outside this hospital in episode 2 of Squid Game (오징어게임) (Netflix, 2021).
Hallym University Hangang Sacred Heart Hospital [한림대학교 한강성심병원/翰林大學校 漢江聖心病院], opened in December 1971, is one of the five hospitals under the governance of Hallym University Medical Center (HUMC) [한림대학교동탄성심병원] — one of the largest medical institutions in South Korea.
