Want to know how the red workers and game players are chosen?

We have some full proof theories that have gone viral explaining how Gong Yoo's Salesman's Ddakji game determines the roles.

One viral TikTok has taken off thanks to a game-changing theory that suggests the colour of the tile people picks with the Salesman determines your role within the game.

Those who take part in the Squid Game competition consist of the players dressed in green, the workers dressed in red and the Front Man dressed in black.

In the series, we see how the players join the game but it's never revealed how the red workers are recruited.

People are now speculating that the red workers are picked in the same way that the players are.

In Squid Game episode 1, viewers see Gi-hun bump into the Salesman (played by Gong Yoo) on a train platform. He tempts Gi-hun into playing a game of Ddakji using red and blue tiles. Gi-hun has the chance of winning 100,000 won if he manages to flip over the Salesman's tile.

In the footage shown in the first episode, we see that all the players chose the blue tile at the start of the game. Gi-hun chose blue, Sang-woo chooses blue, Kim Mi-ok chooses blue, No Sang-hun chooses blue, and we see a few more players slamming the blue tile down on the floor too.

So, we see how the players that picked the blue square are recruited, but what about those who picked the red?

The theory suggests the red workers are those who chose the red tile in the Salesman's game. The players contact the number and are recruited as workers instead of players after the salesman earns their trust.

The theory has not been confirmed by creator Hwang Dong-hyuk just yet but viewers are pretty convinced that it could be the case. Some have speculated that this also could be revealed if the show returns for a second season.

So, what do you think? Does the colour of the tile you choose determine your role in the game?
