An imitation of a giant doll featuring in South Korean survival drama ‘Squid Game’ was launched this week at a Seoul park, giving fans and curious onlookers a chance to experience a bit of what it feels like being on Netflix’s mega hit show.

Younghee, a four-metre-tall doll dressed in orange and yellow, was set up at the Seoul Olympic Park on Monday, Netflix’s representative told Reuters.

Visitors to the park on Tuesday played the Korean traditional game ‘mugunghwa ggoti pieotseubnida’ to music, meaning mugunghwa (flower) has bloomed, equivalent to the ‘Red Light, Green Light’ game in the show.
