If 45.6 billion won rings a bell, you’re most likely living in one of the 142 million households that have watched the hit Netflix show, Squid Game.
But in case it doesn’t, here’s a reminder: 45.6 billion won is the prize money that the winner gets for overcoming the life-threatening, bloodcurdling, soul-chilling games reminiscent of early childhood.
You might remember a similar scene speckled throughout the series—the characters gaze in awe at the piggy bank floating above them, growing heavy with stacks of bills. And if you’re like us, you’ve asked yourself what 45.6 billion won is in Australian dollars.
As of today, 45.6 billion Korean won is just above 52 million Australian dollars, which opens up a (ahem) wealth of properties across the country. So if you’re curious about what you’d do with your winnings after defying death, here’s how you could spend it on real estate.
