After a woman complained she had been harassed by prank calls, Netflix allegedly confirmed intentions to alter sequences from their rave series ‘Squid Game.’

Since the series debuted on the streaming service, the businesswoman from Seongju, South Korea, has gotten thousands of calls and texts from fans inquiring about the horror competition, she told reporters.

“This is a number that I’ve been using for more than ten years, so I’m quite taken aback. There are more than 4,000 numbers that I’ve had to delete from my phone,” Kim Gil-young shared. “At first I didn’t know why, but my friend told me that my number came out in ‘Squid Game’ and that’s when I realized.”

Gil-young reportedly rejected compensation offers of up to five million won (£3 million), according to reports.

The phone number that appears on a mysterious invitation card given to potential actors in the series will be edited, Netflix and local production company Siren Pictures announced on Wednesday.

“Together with the production company, we are working to resolve this matter, including editing scenes with phone numbers where necessary,” Netflix shared in a statement.

The Netflix series ‘Squid Game’ is likely to break a huge milestone as the most viewed series on the platform. The terrifying hyper-violent series premiered on the site last month to tremendous acclaim.
