Kim told reporters that she's had the number on the show for more than 16 years. She has a bakery and because of the phone calls she can't concentrate on her work, and she doesn't know when she is getting calls from pranksters, and when she is getting calls from real clients. Because of the constant stress, the woman even started taking medication.
Kim said she contacted Netflix representatives and they offered her a million South Korean Won ($840) compensation for buying a new phone. But she can't change her number because it's tied to all her business processes. The victim of phone attacks by "Squid Game" fans considers the amount insufficient and doubts the good intentions of the streaming service.
