The new Netflix drama “Squid Game” has already taken over our television screens, and a similar social media challenge is now taking over TikTok. But don’t worry, you can attempt this one at home.

Since its launch in this September, the South Korean drama Squid Game has held the number one slot on Netflix. The show follows a group of cash-strapped working-class folks as they participate in schoolyard activities for 45 billion South Korean won (USD $38.5 billion). Of course, the twist is that if they lose a game, they die. Fortunately, TikTokers have removed the potentially lethal repercussions in order to create this viral challenge.

In the second task, competitors are given a piece of caramelised sugar sweet known as a “dalgona candy” in South Korea. With a catch, they must separate a shape — such as a circle, star, or even an umbrella — from the fragile snack without breaking the shape itself, all while under time constraints. Participants who shatter the shape will lose the game and eliminated from the games.

Korean TikTokers recognised the cookie as Dalgona or Bbopgi. It’s a sugary, toffee-like confection created using baking soda. It has an image stamped into it, just like the Netflix series. For enjoyment, children in Korea frequently eat around the picture without breaking the biscuit.

TikTok fans are learning how to create the iconic Korean dessert and playing the game inspired by the television show.

TikTok users have been posting instructions for making the candy on the app.

It is very easy to make anyone can do it


  • 2 tablespoon crystal sugar
