Seong Gi-hun is a 47-year-old divorced man. He has signed a waiver giving up his physical rights to a person he owed a lot of money to. He is a high school graduate and a former employee of Dragon Motors. The company laid him off 10-years ago.

He separated from his wife three years ago, and his daughter is currently 10-years-old. As of now, Gi-hun owes 160 million won to loan sharks who are after his life. He also owes 255 million won to the bank.

When he lands in the game, he realises that he has signed his death certificate.
