According to an article by The Korea Times, St John’s Hotel in Gangneun, Gangwon province, has recently announced that it would be bringing the popular Netflix series Squid Game to life by hosting a real life version of it on October 24.
The hotel has also said that the event would be open to everyone and not just its guests.
Participants who made a booking to play the game would also receive a card just like in the show, with the phone number of the event organiser on it.
The games that would be played in the event would be similar to the one on the series and they include:
- Red Light, Green Light
- Paper tile flipping
- Tug of War
Those who do not show up on the day of the event and those who do not comply with the rules will be eliminated, just like in the show except not literally.
The host would also reveal his or her identity at the end of the event.
However, there has been some issues in the build up to the event as the city’s government has issued to the hotel an administrative order to put the event to a halt as the event would apparently violate the current Covid-19 restrictions in place over the city.
