PARIS (Oct 6): Tension rose as people waited for hours to get inside an exclusive pop-up store of Netflix Korean series "Squid Game" in Paris, reported UK’s daily Metro.co.
In conjunction with the recently released Korean series "Squid Game" on Netflix, a pop-up store was opened from October 3 in Paris, featuring some of the games in the show such as the “Dalgona” challenge – carving out shapes like circles, stars and triangles into a piece of honeycomb toffee without letting it break.
Besides, visitors also get to be led by the distinctive guards from the series, who are dressed in red and wearing masks.
The pop-up store has been attracting such crowds every day that the queue stretches for 700 ft down the Rue d’Alexandrie in the second arrondissement. It was reported that some visitors took seven hours to get inside.
Recently a footage shared widely on the internet showed people jostling in line before a brawl broke out with one using his motorcycle helmet to beat another man. A breakaway group then appeared to continue fighting further down the street.
Released only a few weeks ago on Sept 17, "Squid Game" is a Netflix series about a group of people in debt who are given the chance to win 45.6 billion won (RM159 million) but only if they risk their lives by completing in six series of Korean childhood games.
