A Squid Game pop-up based on the hit Netflix show entertained locals when it opened in South Korea.

The exhibit found at Itaewon Station recreated some of the drama’s iconic props, including the creepy animatronic doll used to play a deadly children’s game in the series.

Staff also dressed up in red tracksuits like the guards in the show.

The South Korean Netflix drama Squid Game tells the story of hundreds of participants struggling with debt who compete in a series of children’s games to win the final 45.6 billion won (38.7 million USD) prize.

The series was released on September 17 and received an overwhelming response from viewers worldwide but it has also been criticised for showing violence and gore.
