Squid Game actor Oh Young Soo appeared on MBC’s Hangout with Yoo, aired on the 16th, making a hot topic. Oh talked about various things, from why he became an actor to how he appeared on Squid Game thanks to his prior relationship with the director. Saying that he’s the happiest when he’s having a meal with his family, Oh shared, “There are times when our society makes us think that only being number one matters. Second place may have lost to first place, but it still won third place. Everyone’s a winner. A true winner, in my opinion, is someone who tries to reach a certain level by doing their best at what they want to do. That’s what it means to be a winner, and I hope everyone lives like that.”

Oh then added, “‘Beauty’ is my favorite Korean word. Beautiful world, beautiful people, beautiful society… I came to this place, met two beautiful people in a beautiful space, and had a beautiful time. I hope you all live a beautiful life as well.”
