The simulation experience will be so immersive that Nam Chan-woo, director of the UAE Korean Cultural Center, told local media that event staff would wear special pink uniforms with the series' iconic shapes: circle, triangle and square – just like the show guards wear during deadly games.

“Just as K-Pop gained worldwide popularity through YouTube in the 2010s, I think platforms like Netflix can be a conduit for the global diffusion of Korean audiovisual content like dramas and movies,” said Nam.

However, instead of US$38 million (about R$200 million), each winner will receive a personalized green tracksuit like 'Round 6 – unfortunately, there is no cash prize. will have to go through the challenge of being slapped by a recruiter multiple times just to be invited to the games…or killed.
