Squid Game, the no. 1 show on Netflix today, has continued to gain more fans. One of the most popular elements in the show is the giant doll featured in the first episode for the participants' first game called "Red Light, Green Light."
There is no doubt that the giant doll captured the viewers' attention because it spawned countless memes on the internet. But, the question remains: is the doll real? Or did Squid Game create it just for the show?
The Giant Doll In Squid Game Is Real
Surprisingly, the giant doll with laser eyes that killed 255 players on Squid Game is real. Yes, you read that right!
The production actually borrowed the doll from a real village in South Korea. According to the residents, the doll has been in the location, and the Squid Game production borrowed it briefly, Koreaboo reported.
How To Visit The Creepy Giant Doll From Squid Game
The doll that served as the centerpiece of the bloody "Red Light, Green Light" game belongs to the horse carriage village in Jincheon County in Chungcheongbok-do, South Korea. It's a rural area around the north of Seoul. The outlet noted it would take 2 to 3 hours to visit the place by automobile or bus.
The doll was designed to guard a horse carriage museum called Macha Land. It stands tall near the entrance. So, those who wish to take a snap with the doll can go visit the museum.
However, the doll, who had both of its hands when it appeared on Squid Game, visibly lost one of its hands when it was returned. No explanation was given about the missing hand.
Meanwhile, a version of the same doll has been spotted at a mall in the Philippines. Squid Game was a hit in the country, so one of its giant malls created a similar giant-sized doll to entice more shoppers. The doll can be seen at Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas Center, Quezon City, Inquirer.net reported. The doll can only be seen for a limited time.
Squid Game Season 2 Predictions
The series ended with a cliffhanger, leaving the audience wonder what would happen next after Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) canceled his trip to the United States. He saw the same man who recruited him to join the survival game, doing the same thing to another helpless man.
Gi-hun decided to do something about it. He warned the poor man to not pursue the claim and took the calling card. He was able to confirm that the survival game has continued even after Oh Il-nam's (Oh Yeong-su) death.
There are rumors that Gi-hun will be the next mastermind because he will soon find out that Il-nam or player 001 is his real father. Will this happen? Let's see and wait for Netflix's announcement about the renewal.
Netflix hasn't renewed Squid Game yet, but fans are hopeful that it will return for another season.
