The series was the number one show on Netflix’s Top 10 lists in 94 countries around the globe, also becoming the first South Korean show to become the top show in the US. 

Aussie schools were even warning parents not to let their kids watch the violent show because they were acting out the scenes in the playground.

It features gruesome scenes of characters being shot in the head and others having their organs harvested.
