Parody of Squid Game

In the original squid game korean drama, the sum was ₩45.6 billion KRW (about $38.6 million USD). In the parody, one of the contestants decides to look up the prize money for conversion, but the sum of money was only 4 billion KRW.

Furthermore, not just they chose a lesser sum of money for the parody, they also provided a really inaccurate conversion of 4 billion KRW into a $47.89 USD. This is a total insult for many korean people as the true conversion will be $3.38 million USD.
