“From today [Oct. 25], the robot statue of Yeong-hee will be exhibited for about three months,” a representative of Olympic Park told Korean media. The doll will be displayed at the current location until mid-November after which it will be moved to places within the park.

The giant doll displayed at the park is four meters tall, smaller than the original version that has a height of 7 meters used in “Squid Game,” according to Korean media.

“Yeong-hee” was used in the first episode of “Squid Game” where participants played their first deadly game called “Red Light, Green Light.”

In the game, “Yeong-hee” played the role of a tagger. She rolled her eyes to find the person who moved.

“Squid Game” is about 456 debt-ridden people who join deadly games to win a prize amounting to 45.6 billion won (about $38.8 million) and stars Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Jung Ho-yeon, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam Tripathi, Kim Joo-ryoung and Wi Ha-joon.

Netflix declared in a letter to shareholders that “Squid Game” has emerged as our biggest TV show ever. A mind-boggling 142m member households globally have chosen to watch the title in its first four weeks.”

It added that “Squid Game” is “truly amazing” as it ranked No. 1 in 94 countries including the US.
