The Dubai-based Korean Cultural Center announced that the games featured in the thrilling drama series” Squid Game” will be staged in Abu Dhabi.
“To match up to the worldwide popularity of ‘Squid Game,’ the Korean series on NETFLIX, Korean Cultural Center in the UAE has organized an event that you can also enjoy the games played in Squid Game,” KCC’s official website stated.
The KCC’s event will take place on Tuesday in its Abu Dhabi office, and the games involved in the bone-chilling Netflix series will be involved (without murder and carnage)
As per the website, 15 players wearing t-shirts featuring the show’s logo will take part in a single session and will play “red light green light,” “Dalgona candy challenge,” and paper flipping games “Marbles and Ddakji.”
Whereas the event’s staff will wear pink circles, triangles, and square costumes to imitate the staff in the series.
Only UAE residents are eligible to compete and, to apply, the applicants have to answer questions that tested them on their basic knowledge of Netflix’s Squid Game. The selected ones will later receive an e-mail invite.
“Only invitees with a green pass can participate in the event,” the website stated.
Squid Game has been played in real life before, so this isn’t the first time. The game has become so popular that it has infiltrated a Belgian school. The kids, who had evidently been watching the 18+ show, played a stop-start game with red lights and green lights and beat up those who lost.
