<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.

<Reporter> The

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

hang up

, or

[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.

[Kim Gil-young / Victim of number exposure: He (debt) has 1.2 billion, so he really wants to help him so that he can turn around, and he wants to participate in the squid game.]

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

[Producer official: I can't do anything about leaving.

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...

.] The

production company said, "We are doing our best to solve the problem amicably."
