Will Korean sensation “Squid Game (오징어 게임)” ever fade away? It’s doubtful, especially since everyone is eager to try the concept for themselves (minus the deaths, of course). Even our Malaysian YouTubers have jumped on the trend!
Recently, Lim Shang Jin (林尚进) gathered a group of 40 Malaysian internet celebrities (including newly weds Diorlynn and Wilbur) to shoot the Malaysian version of the “Squid Game”. While many were invested in the video, some noticed some rather curious markings on Shang Jin’s neck.
The video was released on 27th December and it looks to be quite the production. It puts one in mind of a variety show which follows the “Squid Game” concept. As per the show, players will go through different games and avoiding losing and elimination. Whoever wins gets a grand prize of RM30,000. However, it has been aptly renamed to “Sotong Game”.
Although netizens were interested in seeing what the YouTuber had pulled off, a few were distracted by other things instead. More specifically, some rather obvious markings on Shang Jin’s neck. As one netizen commented: “I think Shang Jin has (hickeys) on his neck.”
Close ups on Shang Jin in the beginning do reveal some rather strange looking marks, or as netizens call them, “strawberries“. No one else has them, so clearly it’s not part of the show. A few speculate that Gatita may have left a few love bites on her lover. Gatita is also part of the 40 celebs chosen for the game although she didn’t stand out much in the first episode.
Well, it may be surprising to learn that Gatita and Shang Jin haven’t officially declared their dating status yet. However, it’s pretty obvious that the two are very much into each other at this point.
