Squid Game is all anyone is talking about at the moment, and the Korean TV series' release on Netflix has been met with worldwide praise, with fans across the world all obsessing over the bizarre show.
For those of you who have been living under a rock, Squid Game is a Korean thriller which tells the story of 456 people, all from different walks of life who risk their lives in order to win billions.
They do this through a series of survival challenges based on their favourite childhood games, which have deadly consequences.
Unfortunately, Squid Game's viewers are growing increasingly frustrated due to the fact it plays a dubbed version on the UK Netflix, with English voice-actors playing over the original Korean dialogue.
This wouldn't usually be a problem, if the subtitles matched.
Netflix automatically plays the dubbed English audio track, but the spoken dialogue doesn't match the English subtitles, with the subtitles having a similar meaning, but not quite matching what's being said, word-for-word.

How to watch Squid Game in Korean on Netflix and get rid of English dubbing
It's actually pretty simple for you to turn off the English dubbing, and you don't need to download any extras or watch Squid Game on a different platform, you can stay on Netflix.
The same goes for any other foreign language TV series or movie on Netflix UK, as its settings automatically plays us the English dub if it is available.
Firstly search for Squid Game on Netflix and play the show like you would normally.
Press pause, and find the menu, clicking on the subtitles icon in the bottom left of your screen (the subtitles icon is a small box with three white lines in it).
Next to the subtitles option, you'll see the much lesser-used 'audio' settings.
Here, in the audio settings, you should select Korean, instead of English.
Ensure your subtitles settings are still set to English, so you can follow them instead of the audio.
Press play, and it should all be working perfectly!
