Shares of candy molds skyrocketed in Turkey
According to the news of Sputniknews, the shares about the candy mold, one of the most popular games of Squid Game in Turkey, almost reached the ceiling. At this point, Twitter announced that the post that received the most interaction was the post made by Galatasaray Sports Club before the derby match.

In addition, Twitter announced that the group that tweets the most about Squid Game is young people between the ages of 18-24 with 37 percent. This was followed by the age range of 25-34 with 35.7 percent.
According to the report, the K-pop music genre, which has become very popular lately, as well as Squid Game, has managed to find itself at the top of the Twitter agenda this year. On the other hand, many comics and movies made in South Korea were talked about for a long time.
Finally, the report highlights that K-pop is one of the main reasons why South Korean-made projects are constantly on the agenda. Because the fans of the music genre in question show serious interest in the country’s TV series and movies. Squid Game is expected to do the same.
