It has been reported that Netflix gave bonuses to the cast members and the team behind of ‘Squid Game’.
Bloomberg News reported on November 22nd that Netflix paid a one-time bonus to the cast members and the team behind of ‘Squid Game‘ for their hard work in producing the most popular in the company history. Netflix did not disclose the exact amount of the bonus.
Bloomberg reported that the actors of ‘Squid Game‘ received less than the stars of the HBO drama ‘Succession.’ Bloomberg explained “The bonus the cast received is less than the one-time fee paid by actors in the HBO drama ‘Succession’,” Bloomberg continued. It was just that”.
Netflix is said to have invested about 21 million USD in the production cost of ‘Squid Game‘. However, it is estimated that the show that cost 21 million USD to produce is estimated to be worth more than 900 million USD. Netflix took most of the revenue under the terms of the contract. Director Hwang Dong-hyuk, who directed ‘Squid Game‘, also said that he did not make a lot of money compared to his success.
In addition, Bloomberg stated, “Most of that money goes to Netflix, not the producers or the cast. Creator Hwang Dong Hyuk has said in the press that he didn’t make a lot of money on the first season. This raises an interesting question. The easiest way for services like Netflix and HBO to reward people in success is paying them more for subsequent seasons. The creators of Game of Thrones didn’t get rich off of season 1. But by the end of the show, they were doing just fine.”
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Director Hwang Dong Hyuk is planning a Season 2 thanks to the worldwide box office success of ‘Squid Game’. As Netflix is rushing production by paying an unusual bonus, expectations are growing that you can watch Season 2 quickly.
