Abu Dhabi Holds Real-Life Squid Game Because Why Not?
SQUID GAME – As Netflix’s “Squid Game” rockets to popularity, the Korean Cultural Center in Abu Dhabi holds a real-life version of the show.
Although there were no squids in the entirety of Squid Game, we did see the lengths humans would go to survive. But, even if you love it or hate it, the fact is, Squid Game has become one of today’s cult hits.
Now, you could see versions of the games played on the show in things such as Roblox and Minecraft. Unfortunately, doing a true-to-the-show version of Squid Game IRL is wrong in every sense. (is it though?)
As such, the Korean Cultural Center, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates conducted an IRL version of the show minus the graphic violence. According to an article from ABS-CBN, 15 participants were lucky enough to be chosen to play the games popularized in Squid Game.
Among the games they would play is “Red Light, Green Light, Dalgona Candy Challenge, Marbles game, and Ddakji. Meanwhile, inside the KCC staff are already seen cosplaying the guards in the show. However, instead of actual weapons, they held paintball guns.
Additionally, much like the show, the KCC said there will be prizes for participants, especially those who’d win the event. Still, the likelihood of the prize being the life-changing 45.6 billion won is zero.
Nevertheless, joining and even such as this would be an absolute blast. And, to register for the game, applicants had to be residents of the UAE and had a basic knowledge of the show.
