I'm not sure about you, but I've personally been spending my free time this week researching every single detail about the cast members of Squid Game. Said deep dive naturally led me to watch their recent appearance on The Tonight Show, which revealed some adorable inside scoop on Park Hae-soo's growing family. The 39-year-old actor, who plays the role of Cho Sang-woo in the gripping series, told host Jimmy Fallon how he and his wife welcomed their first child on the exact same day Squid Game hit Netflix — talk about wild timing!

"It was quite amazing because the premiere of Squid Game was at 4 p.m. KST, and the first time I got to meet my son was at 3:50 p.m.," Hae-soo said. "He is my lucky charm and a bundle of blessing for me."

He added that many of his friends have already given his son a precious nickname that honors the miraculous timing of his arrival: Baby Squid. Aww! Watch Hae-soo chat about his newborn among other topics in the full interview ahead.
