The Squid Game it has been a true international success. Since it premiered on September 17 on Netflix, the Korean series has overcome all kinds of tests and obstacles to become the best premiere in the history of the platform. A milestone that the company itself announced just a few hours ago throught social media, where it confirmed that no series had managed to overcome the barrier of 111 million views in such a short time.
A success that has allowed him to travel beyond the screens and interfere in society. Did you know that you can now disguise yourself as one of the security guards in the series? Despite the fact that only a few weeks have passed since its premiere, more and more bazaars and costume shops offer us the possibility of becoming one of them. An option that, without a doubt, will be one of the most recurrent during the Halloween celebration.
South Korean hotel announces its own Squid Games
On the other hand, more and more people are dancing on social networks to the rhythm of the song Green light that could be heard in the first chapter of the series and even those who enjoy their own Squid Games on platforms Roblox. An unprecedented success that, to no one’s surprise, has led several developers to develop their own games in real life. Just a few days ago, the Korean hotel St. John, located in the Gangneung region, he advertised through his Instagram profile creating a competition that resembles the one sweeping Netflix.
After analyzing the success of the Korean series, the hotel managers have renamed the contest as The holy games to avoid any possible lawsuit by the video platform in streaming and has summoned a total of 500 people on October 24 in the pine forest in front of the hotel. All this to fight for a prize of five million Korean won, about 3,633 euros to change.
No, eliminated people will not be killed
According to the publication, all those who pay the registration of 10,000 won (about 7.27 euros) will receive a business card with a phone number to call. Then each of them must go to the forest in front of the hotel on the agreed day and time to participate in the game. Once there, the different participants will face a total of four tests. From the already classic English hideout that we could see in the series or the tug of war to the cookie test or a slapping tournament that will bring the game to an end.
And no, people who do not take the test or fail to pass it will not be killed. The objective of this game is, as it happens in The Squid Game, to eliminate the different contestants until only one is left standing so that he can take the long-awaited five million won.
