Alert in Belgium for recreation of ‘The Squid Game’


  • They implore parents to make their children “be aware of the consequences this can cause”

  • The warning to parents has taken place in municipal schools of Erquelinnes, in the region of Wallonia

  • In the Belgian version, the loser is punched instead of being executed

Municipal schools in the commune of Erquelinnes, in the Belgian region of Wallonia, have issued a warning following reports of students participating in a dangerous game inspired by the popular south korean series ‘The squid game’, de Netflix.

In a statement published on networks this week, municipal schools addressed parents: “We are very attentive to stop this unhealthy and dangerous game.”

The post was made after discovering that several children were recreating ‘Red light, green light’, in which low-income players compete in deadly contests for a hefty reward.

In the aforementioned game, participants must head towards a giant doll when it screams “green light.” When the doll yells “red light”, the contestant must stay still. If the wrist detects movement, the participant will be shot dead.

In the version created by Belgian children, the loser gets punched instead of being executed. Managers implore parents to make their children “aware of the consequences this can cause.”

It is not the first time that ‘The Squid Game’ has had a negative impact on the real world: Last month, a South Korean received thousands of phone calls and text messages after his number appeared on the series.
