New Yorkers Immerse Themselves in ‘Squid Game’ Experience


SEOUL, Oct. 28 (Korea Bizwire)South Korea’s sensational survival drama “Squid Game” is sweeping across New York.

At the 2021 Korean Festival held by the Korean American Association of Greater New York at Union Square, Manhattan on Sunday, visitors were seen lined up in front of a stand selling Korean-style sugar candy, known as “dalgona.”

Another event hosted by the Korean Tourism Organization that took place in Manhattan two days later involved a ‘survival competition’ with a series of Korean children’s games, gaining significant interest among local residents.

More than 3,000 people signed up for an 80-person slot in seven days.


At Studio 525, where the event took place, participants were first invited to play a childhood game known as “dalgona bbobggi.”

Next up was Korean flip flop game “ddakji,” where people were seen hurling paper origamis at each other, both children and adults alike.

The most popular “Red Light, Green Light,” a sugar honeycomb game, also took place during the event.
