Elementary schools in New York state have banned students from wearing Squid Game costumes during Halloween celebrations..

The South Korean thriller is enjoying record views, and has attracted a large audience from around the world thanks to a number of elements including childish games and elaborate production..

School administrators fear that violence will spread among students.

The Netflix platform presents the series Squid Game, which deals with the story of people burdened with debts who covet a large cash prize by participating in a deadly race, albeit primarily for children’s games..

Because of the bloody content in Squid Game, school administrators had to send e-mails to parents alerting them to the series’ violent messages..

Officials at three New York schools said it would not be “appropriate” to wear Squid Game costumes in schools.

In addition to Halloween costumes, the three schools prohibited students from bringing any items that “consider weapons” or “scary.”.

The school officials say that the students imitate the scenes of the series in the break times between school lessons.

School principals have warned parents that “games that involve violent behavior will not be allowed in schools.”

In the United States, Squid Game has been rated as adult content and “unsuitable for those under the age of seventeen”.

But there are parents who have expressed unease over the schools’ decision to ban the wearing of fancy dress, according to reports.

One of the women was quoted by CBS as saying, “It’s just a disguise. You just have to stop your children from watching the show.” Another woman described the ban as “tyrannical”.

And in England, teachers warn that six-year-olds are imitating scenes from the South Korean soap opera.

Earlier this month, officials in the county of Bedfordshire, eastern England, warned parents not to allow their children to watch Squid Game, telling them to be careful because children are imitating what they are watching..

The Squid Game is the latest manifestation of South Korea’s growing influence on the global cultural scene. The series achieved the highest views in the history of Netflix, topping the rankings in more than eighty countries.

Squid Game blends social symbolism with extreme violence through a dystopian vision of society, portrayed by characters from the most marginalized groups in South Korea..
