Healing Hof [힐링호프]

Squid Game (2021)

Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) is desperate for money to pay for his mother’s medical treatment, and comes to his friend’s (Lee Seo-hwan) pub to borrow money, or to work as a delivery driver in episode 2 of Squid Game (오징어게임) (Netflix, 2021). His friend explains that he is barely able to pay the rent and cannot help him, as they stand outside smoking, sheltered from the rain. The friend is then called back inside by his wife, and she tells Gi-hun that it’s “rude to smoke outside someone else’s shop” and moves him along.
