Real life “Squid Game” to be held in the UAE

Real-life “Squid Game” to be held in the UAE!

Yes, you read it right. A game event inspired by the popular Netflix series Squid Game is being planned to be held in The United Arab Emirates, though it is going to be a much safer and fun-oriented event.

As per the announcement, the Korean Cultural Center in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates will be hosting its “KCC Squid Game Event” on Tuesday, October 12. It will be a reenactment of the popular Netflix series.

According to the announcement, over 300 hopefuls applied, but just two groups of 15 participants each will be able to compete in the event.

“There are just two key differences between the “KCC Squid Game Event” and the version from the show—naturally, no one will die in the games, and there’s also no prize money to be won. Instead, the Korean Cultural Center hopes the event will inspire people in the United Arab Emirates to learn more about Korean culture,” the Korean Cultural Center clarified.

“The games seemed a bit brutal in the series to maximize the dramatic element, however, actually all the games in the series are popular games played by Korean children,”  The Korean Cultural Center added.

Explaining how the games will be played, KCC added that, “To make the game safe for participants, sponge guns will be used instead of real guns, and the game of glass stepping stones will be played on flat ground instead of hundreds of feet in the air.”

“If the event is successful, it may even give rise to more Squid Games held around the world—possibly with the promise of prize money too. Until then, this is a true testament to just how popular the K-Drama has become across the globe,” KCC concluded.

So let’s see how the event turns out.
