Throughout the 9 episodes of Squid Game (2021), there are several instances of gift boxes with bows on them. The main character, Seong Gi-hun, tried desperately to retrieve a gift box from a coin operated machine in the first episode, which was eventually done for him by a child. The police officer found a gift box with a bow in the cinderblock room with all the info about the game. All of the caskets looked like gift boxes, complete with bows. There were several other appearances of gift boxes with bows on them, always with the bow off-center.
Has anyone seen anything that might explain the symbolism of this? It occurred too many times to not have some meaning behind it.
