A South Korean hotel wants to bring the squid game to lifeOct 172021
Although the organization is underway and tickets have already been sold out, the event could be canceled due to social distancing regulations due to the coronavirus, details the newspaper The Korea Times.
The St. John's hotel, located in the city of Gangneung (Gangwon province, South Korea), decided to capitalize on the success of the Netflix series 'The Squid Game' by announcing this Monday on its Instagram account that plans to organize a version of the series 'in real life' by the end of October.
However, the event could be canceled due to social distancing regulations that exist in the area due to the coronavirus, details The Korea Times newspaper.
Follow the script, but without violence
It was announced that in the recreation of the series, which will be free of violence, not only the guests of the establishment, but everyone who wishes, will be able to participate, without age limitations. In addition, the hotel ensures that the winner will receive a prize of more than $ 4,000.
Those who decide to register will be sent a business card with the phone number of the event organizer (as in 'The Squid Game'), whose identity will be revealed at the end of the game.
Participants will have to undergo four challenges listed in the series. Those who do not follow the established rules or do not show up on the day of the event will be eliminated (although obviously not killed, as in the fictional plot).
A hotel employee told the newspaper that tickets for the game, which range in price from 10,000 to 12,000 won ($ 8.45 to $ 10.15), have already been sold out.
Regarding the adjustments to ensure compliance with the anticovid measures, the possibility of changing the format is being examined, otherwise the event might have to be canceled.
The South Korean television series has become the most watched premiere in Netflix history, with 111 million views since its departure on September 17. In this way it surpasses 'The Bridgertons', which reached 82 million in the first 28 days after its launch.
