This Cool Pop-Up Lets You Step Into the World of Netflix's Squid Game

(SPOT.ph) Korean series Squid Game just dropped on September 17 and it's on Netflix's Top 10 list in the Philippines since its release. It's easy to get hooked to the premise of the show: hundreds of cash-strapped individuals participate in mysterious, high-stakes children’s games. But it's not exactly for kids, what with all the gore, the unexpected twists, and the risks involved. There's a whopping cash prize to split among the winners—but they have to survive all games first. 

If you have been binge-watching this weekend—or if you're one of those who have already breezed through all nine episodes, you might have been thinking about the show's games and its overall aesthetic (that candy-colored staircase ranks high on our list). In Korea, they made the show "come to life" as Netflix dressed up Itaewon Station and turned it into a Squid Game-inspired playground!
