Since Netflix’s popular dystopian series from South Korea, Squid Game launched, the show has generated a lot of hype and fans.
Even popular businessmen like Jeff Bezos have reacted to the quality of the show.
Squid Game tells the story of 456 people who were invited to participate in a competition for a chance to win a lump sum of money but with deadly stakes.
The competition involves the players completing a series of deadly challenges modeled after popular children’s games in Korea.
Fans of the show in the United Arab Emirates will be given a chance to experience the adventures of the show minus bloodshed.
The game is being organized by Korean Cultural Center and will include the games that were shown in the Netflix series.
The event has been slated in two sessions on October 12 at the center’s Abu Dhabi office and will feature two teams of 15 participants.
According to the center’s event page disclosed that four out of the 6 games shown in the Netflix series will be reenacted.
These include the “Red Light, Green Light” and “Dalgona Candy” that have become popular on Tik-Tok following the success of the series.
Players will also try out the “Marbles” and “Ddakji” (the paper flipping game) from the series.
Sadly, the winners of these games will only be going home with customized green tracksuits unlike $38 million in the series.
Well, it’s a good bargain considering that you don’t have to get slapped across the face to get invited and there’s no risk to your life.
