Netflix: aprè s Squid Game, this Korean series will please subscribers

the 8 show, the newSquid Game

While fans ofSquid Game are impatiently awaiting season 2 of the series, which Netflix unveiled in February first teaser, another program developed on the same formula will soon be available on the platform. The site's subscribers are undeniably fond of these twisted Korean concepts, as bloody as they are violent,and they will get their money's worth! This Friday, May 17, the first episodes ofThe 8 Showwill finally be available online. In the program ? Viewers will discover eight candidates, the number which gives its name to the candidate. the series, while they are locked in a building, spread over eight floors,with the aim of staying 100 days without leaving their apartments. These characters, in difficulty financial, will do everything to win the first prize of this television game. which could radically change their lives: an astronomical amount of around 30 million euros (or 44.8 billion won, the local currency).

But there is a trap… Indeed, each expense of food, water, or electricity, will be deducted from this sum. Participants will have to therefore succeed in to feed oneself, hydrate and drink heat themselves without their hypothetical gain decreasing too much, while their gain increases gradually over time. as time passes. Unsurprisingly, they will achieve this thanks to alliances and betrayals which could well cost them their lives! A program which, as you will have understood, promises to be breathtaking. For Netflix, thisThe 8 Showis an investment that the platform hopes will be profitable. In total, it plans to invest $2.5 billion in South Korean production over the next four years. Knowing that content from this country has won over 60% of the site's subscribers in 2022, the risk is nonetheless calculated.

And you, what do you think of the concept?
