‘Squid Game’ Creator Says He’s Never ‘Seen A Real Bullet’

Netflix, News, Scripted

While Hollywood continues to reel after the shooting on the set of Rust, several productions have gone public with their assurances that they are going to reexamine how things are done in their own productions. However, there is one very popular show that does indeed use prop guns that says it doesn’t need to change the way it does things.

Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk recently told Variety that he has “never seen a real bullet” when asked about safety precautions on his set.

That may come as a bit of a shock to the people that watch the show. One of the big draws is that the Netflix original program has over-the-top violence. There’s also plenty of people being gunned down.

“We of course have a prop master, but also in Korea, we’re not really a gun-owning country, so only the police can have and own a gun,” the Squid Game director said. “Because of that, bullets are not really easily as distributed as they are maybe here, so there’s a very low, low possibility of any safety issues happening on set.”

Squid Game Creator And His Lack Of Bullets

If there were some who were a bit skeptical about his comments about set safety, the Netflix show’s creator went one step further.

“In my life, I have never seen a real bullet. I have only seen them in the movies,” he told the publication.

Other Companies Following Through

While the show doesn’t seem to think it needs to change the way it does things, other companies are making sure their sets are quite a bit safer.

A number of directors and production companies have banned live guns on their sets following the fatal shooting, including The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke and Dwayne Johnson’s production company Seven Bucks Productions.

For his part, Alec Baldwin, who fired the gun that shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, has his won suggestions for how people should deal with guns on set. In particular, he said that he thinks there should always be a police officer on set.

He added that he wants the officers there in order to “tighten” gun regulations in productions.

Elected officials have also said there need to be changes made. The governor of New Mexico for one, said he might take steps if Hollywood doesn’t. It’s not entirely clear what steps those could be. Doing something like outlawing bullets could see a pushback. Even if people believe that sets need to be safer, they don’t often like it when a mandate is put in place.

As for Squid Game, it appears that while the people affiliated with that show feel bad for what happened on Rust, they don’t believe it can happen with them.
