On Monday, Netflix unveiled the trailer to Squid Game: The Challenge, the reality game show version of the blockbuster Korean import.
From the drop, one can see that the 456 contestants vying for the game’s $4.56 million top prize are fans of the show: They are floored just entering a recreation of the series’ iconic bunk rooms, and marvel at the other sets.
However, the similarities don’t stop there: Young-hee, the creepy doll statue known for famously announcing the deadly Red Light/Green Light game is there, too, and is seen staging a massive, real-life version of the game from the show.
The only thing missing is the losers getting machine-gunned if they move after she says, “red light.”
They do, however, suffer being shot by paintballs.
“This is a savage game,” one contestant says in voiceover. “You can’t trust anybody in here,” another says as the action unfolds, showing the bridge of death, the feverish cookie trimming, marbles and the other games adapted from the original show.
Squid Game: The Challenge debuts November 22 on Netflix.
