My Name: Squid Game Fans Will Love Netflix's Korean Thriller Series

Many Squid Game fans online believe they may have found the next Netflix phenomenon. If you've finished binge-watching the high stakes drama, heartfelt series Maid, and the chilling third season of You, we may have found your next obsession.

The series that has social media talking is another Korean drama, the South Korean thriller My Name.

The gritty eight-part series follows a woman named Jiwoo (Han So-hee) who is hellbent on getting revenge on the gangsters who murdered her father.

The relationship between daughter and father is rocky and Jiwoo regrettably tells her father Donghoon (Yoon Kyung-ho) that he was dead to her.

This leads to him trying to redeem himself by making an attempt to celebrate her birthday. But the moment he snuck out of their apartment building he was struck down by a mysterious killer lurking in the shadows, with Jiwoo locked in the apartment unable to save him.

As the killer shot Dong-hoon, he broke the key in the lock to protect his daughter. 

After reporting the murder to the police, who are of no help, she turns to Mujin (Park Hee-soon), who was friends with Donghoon, to help her get revenge by training her in his martial arts gym.

The first episode ends with a battle involving all the members of the martial arts gym and Jiwoo is one of two remaining competitors.

Viewers are already hyped over My Name, with one person sharing on Twitter: "The kdrama 'my name’ is gonna be like the next squid game in terms of popularity i’m telling y’all."
