An old man begins to lose his short term memory, and is completely unable to remember things that have just been said. When playing a game against another character, he asks for things to be repeated. This other character lies about how the game is going in order to win.

There are several times where a character is tricked/betrayed by someone they trust.

A dead fish is cut at a market for food, nothing bad really and there's fish that have died in a bowl when he visits an apartment to look for his brother but nothing terrible. The series is brillant and coming from someone who's overly sensitive to animals dying most of you should be ok! I recommend

No assault occurs and the writing frames it as an uncomfortable scene but you do watch as onlookers jeer upon hearing that a man was coerced into performing sexual acts.

The first episode has a giant creepy robotic doll resembling a young child used as part of the 'Red Light Green Light' round. If the doll depicts someone moving it sets off hidden guns at the contestant. The design plays heavily into the uncanny valley, and the doll's eyes are shown moving around in close-up.

None that are shown, but a character implies that she was sexually assaulted by her father when she was a child

During the season finale, someone who appears to be homeless is unconscious on the sidewalk in the snow, and two characters bet on whether or not someone will come help the man. Someone ends up bringing the police over as a means to help the person.

No explosions happen, but it is worth mentioning that a bomb is shown onscreen and talked about when two character descend a ladder. It does not explode.

No one drowns, but several people are dumped into the ocean after being killed, and there's a scene where they pull a corpse out of the ocean

People are threatened with guns, and killed by execution with guns.
