On October 20 episode of SBS POWER FM's radio show 'Cultwo Show', Brian made a guest appearance.
During the talk, Brian revealed that he recently returned from the United States after seeing his family.
Brian said, "I decided to go to the States, because my grandma wasn't feeling so well. It wasn't easy for me to take a long time off at once, but I did this time. I stayed for weeks."
Brian said, "I actually got to watch 'Squid Game' due to recommendations by non-Koreans. When I told them that I was from Korea, they would talk about 'Squid Game', like everybody did that."
The K-pop star continued, "One day, I got home and turned on Netflix. 'Squid Game' was on it. I was like, 'Oh, this was what they were talking about.'"
He added, "I was staying at my parents' house, and on that day, my parents happened to get into a big fight with each other. So, I just quietly stayed in my room and watched the whole series all night."
It is currently one of the most-watched series on Netflix; it drew 111 million viewers in the first month, landing the top spot in the streaming service's history.
