People are trying to buy clothes worn in the very popular South Korean TV series "Squid Game". Many people want the green tracksuits and pink jumpsuits from the show to wear as Halloween costumes. Clothes factories in Korea are trying to make enough clothes to meet demand. One factory owner said: "October is usually a slow month for the sewing industry, but thanks to Squid Game and Halloween, we are scrambling to sew enough clothes."

Squid Game is another example of South Korean culture becoming popular worldwide. Netflix broadcast it on September 17. It is now Netflix's most watched series ever. Around 142 million people watched Squid Game in the 28 days after its release. The series is a survival contest between 456 players who are in debt. They play children's games to try to win $40 million to get out of debt. However, the games could kill them.
