<Anchor> In the
recently popular Netflix drama, the cell phone number of an unrelated person is exposed, which is causing a problem. In fact, a man who has been using this number for over 10 years complains that his daily life has become impossible because of the thousands of calls.
Reporter Han Seong-hee covered the story.
list of missed calls continues even if you get off or get off.
Thousands of calls have been pouring in from last Friday to Gil-Young Kim, who runs a business in Seongju, North Gyeongsang Province.
Incoming calls during the interview. His face is full of tiredness.
If you get it, just
[Kim Gil-young / Victim of number exposure: Hello, (tuk) hang up like this.]
There are some people who use abusive language.
[Sender: Kim XX in 1992. I'm not talking, this XXX.]
After the 8-digit number appeared in a scene in the Netflix drama 'Squid Game', his daily life collapsed.
If you dial this number and make a call, '010' is automatically attached and connected, which was Kim's phone number.
Some viewers, who are immersed in the drama, make absurd requests.

The only way out of this situation is to change your phone number.

It's an unintentional part.
I think there is no other way than to change the number, honestly.] The
production company said it was a mistake and offered a compensation of about 1 million won, but to give up a business phone number, Mr. Kim has to suffer a lot of damage.
[Kim Gil-young / Victim of number exposure: Actually, I have been using this number for almost 20 years.
I keep getting calls to order, and I keep getting calls and texts from time to time...
