However, Sang-Woo, with his cunning intelligence, tricks Ali into unknowingly giving him all of his marbles. When Ali realizes that he has been tricked, there is already a masked man standing behind him.</p>                                                                                                                                     <!-- No winning ad found for zone: above mid article widget! -->                   <!-- No winning ad found for zone: below mid article widget! -->                       <!-- No winning ad found for zone: every images #7! -->                       <!-- No repeatable ad for zone: every entry repeatable. --><h2>3 Not Sad: Sang-Woo Realizes How Far He's Fallen</h2>                                                                                                                                                            <!--[if IE 9]><![endif]--><!--[if IE 9]><![endif]--><img alt="sang woo in tuxedo squid game" src="https://www.cbr.com//" /> <!-- No winning ad found for zone: below main pic! --><p>Sang-Woo <a href="https://www.cbr.com/squid-game-characters-changed-most/">is a character whose morality drastically shifts</a> throughout his involvement in the Squid Game. The first indication of his moral decline comes when he fails to warn Gi-Hun about the honeycomb game.</p>                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        <p>Before the last game, Sang-Woo's principles are no longer intact. He murders Sae-Byeok under the guise of ending her suffering, but at this point in the game, he is just morally corrupt. During the 6th game, the Squid Game, Sang-Woo realizes how far he's fallen and kills himself.</p>                                                                                                                                             <!-- No winning ad found for zone: every images #8! -->                       <!-- Zone: every entry repeatable. -->Advertisement<!-- /39363775/CBA_Injected_300X250_Desktop --> <p>     </p><h2>2 Saddest: Gi-Hun's Mother Dies Alone</h2>                                                                                                                                                            <!--[if IE 9]><![endif]--><!--[if IE 9]><![endif]--><img alt="Gi-huns mother dies alone" src="https://www.cbr.com//" /> <!-- No winning ad found for zone: below main pic! --><p>A big reason why Gi-Hun re-enters the game after leaving is that his mother needs surgery. She has diabetes and an infection in her feet. Gi-Hun leaves his ailing mother and joins the Squid Game once again.</p>                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        <p>Fortunately, Gi-Hun is the sole survivor of the Squid Game and returns home with enough money to afford his mother's surgery—and much more. However, once he arrives home, he finds his mother alone, and dead. As he lies down beside her on the floor, he tells her he has money now.</p>                                                                                                                                             <!-- No winning ad found for zone: every images #9! -->                       <!-- No repeatable ad for zone: every entry repeatable. --><h2>1 Not Sad: Il-Nam Is A Pretty Terrible Person</h2>                                                                                                                                                            <!--[if IE 9]><![endif]--><!--[if IE 9]><![endif]--><img alt="Ilnam is the mastermind behind the squid game" src="https://www.cbr.com//" /> <!-- No winning ad found for zone: below main pic! --><p>Surprisingly, Il-Nam's death is both one of the saddest, but also not. When he's just Gi-Hun's friend and the old guy with a tumor, viewers feel for him and his plight. Especially when he lets Gi-Hun win the marble game. It's a bittersweet end.</p>                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        <p>However, when viewers find out Il-Nam is not only still alive, but is the evil mastermind behind the Squid Game, all the sympathy for his character is gone.
