Netflix released the first Squid game: the challenge from his new reality competition, based on the first season of the hit K-drama of the same name.
The video features two of its 456 players, who form a mother-son duo from Chicago. The clip previews the first challenge of the series, which is the “Red Light, Green Light” game. Trey describes his mother as a former athlete who he believes has what it takes to outlast him in competition. Meanwhile, his mother expresses her concerns about him surviving the first game. The show will be available to stream on November 22.
