Another replied: "In the last episode, on the card, it’s marked "Sky Tower". I guess it is located in Seoul. I don't know if it's useful but maybe you can find it with this information.

The news comes after Netflix was forced to removed scenes from Squid Game after a rookie production error that saw an unknown man receive thousands of nuisance phone calls as the phone numbers turned out to be legitimate.

Most films and TV shows use fake numbers within their productions, but the makers of Squid Game accidentally used a real one.

The number happened to belong to a Korean man who found himself receiving thousands upon thousands of calls every day.
