Watch: “Running Man” Cast Parodies “Squid Game” In Preview For Next Week’s Episode
SBS’s “Running Man” will be jumping on the “Squid Game” bandwagon next week!
“Squid Game” is a hit Netflix series about a mysterious survival game with a reward of 45.6 billion won (about $40 million) starring Lee Jung Jae, Park Hae Soo, Wi Ha Joon, Jung Ho Yeon, Oh Young Soo, Heo Sung Tae, Anupam Tripathi, and Kim Joo Ryoung. The series hit No. 1 on Netflix’s rankings in 90 countries around the world.
As revealed in the preview, the “Running Man” parody version is titled “Webfoot Octopus Game.” Like “Squid Game,” it starts out with the cast members receiving a mysterious invitation to a game that promises to change their lives. The cast “wakes up” in the show’s iconic tracksuits and have to play a number of childish games to win the cash prize. The cast gets immersed into the concept of the show, with Jun So Min even getting into character, but the game changes when the members start getting taken out one by one.
This episode of “Running Man” will air on October 17. Check out the preview below!
