Very Simple Squid Game Keep/Give Bomb Game Template
« on: September 30, 2021, 10:31:07 pm »
Hi all! I'm a super noob at making ppt games, but I whipped up this simple Squid Game bomb game template so I could strike while the popularity of the show is still at an all-time high.

In my class I play this with each team taking turns choosing the question, but all teams answer on their boards and get a point for the right answer. Then that choosing team can pick to either "keep or give" the prize. (If they get the question wrong they'll be forced to give it away) It's sometimes good and sometimes bad.

Obviously the red light /green light doll is meant to be the bomb, but my classes don't super enjoy that so I just kept it to a measly -5 points.

Feel free to edit or enhance this game as needed. There's no instructions since this game is intended for middle school and they know how bomb games work, haha.

Let me know if the video/ sounds didn't embed properly.

Squid Game has a 청불 (19+) rating; it's not for minors.

Best to keep our teaching as squeaky clean G rated as possible.

Disney references are a better choice.

Yeah, I finally watched the show and I definitely don't want to associate with it, even with older kids (I mean, they're probably all watching it anyways...what can you do). I will say that the game itself is tasteful (nice job to the op btw; you said you were a noob but it looks pretty great to me haha) and there's nothing remotely scary or offensive in it. I guess each teacher can decide for themselves

I loved this template and wanted to help/add some to it. I added some more lose point options and a few different point variations. I also raised the point values (because my kids love getting lots of points). Feel free to use it!

Yesterday I was shocked to see one of my third graders wearing a child's version of Gi-Hun's track suit, complete with number 456. When I blurted out 오정어 게임 in shock, they started talking too fast for me to follow, and then several kids started humming that iconic music. I couldn't believe it!

Teachers, please, please, please don’t use squid game materials. The 19+ rating means it’s illegal for a Korean under to 19 to see it, even if accompanied by a parent. Even if the parent consents, which most wouldn’t, still illegal. If you associate yourself with this / promote this to students, you will not only make yourself look bad, but foreigner teachers as a whole.

Thank you for the warning. I didn't know how serious the situation was. I think my students have been playing a Roblox game that is a bloodless version of Squid Game. I only know it exists because I watched Jacksepticeye playing it.

Also, I just looked through both of the templates posted here, and they each have a slide (the R-P-S slide) that is soaked in blood! So I am extra glad I have not used these yet!

The rating system is more strict in Korea, as it’s a conservative country. There’s really foul language in the show that you would not pick up if not fluent in Korean. Subtitles or dubs gets a tamer version. There’s nudity in a sex scene, but worst of all is the violence and killing. Hundreds of deaths. That’s scar material for a kid. Even an adult maybe.

As mentioned above, Korean shows rated 19+ will have the following disclaimer at the beginning of them:
이 프로그램은 19세 미만의 청소년이 시청하기에 부적절한 프로그램입니다.
(This program is prohibited for children under the age of 19.)

It's not like the US, where teachers were allowed to play R-rated movies if the parents signed a permission slip.

Not a good idea to use it in school.

Although I do agree it is questionable using 19+ rated shows as a base for games for minors, please don't spread misinformation.

It is not illegal for kids to watch it. It's a TV show that can be viewed in the privacy of a home, nothing illegal about kids watching. It's not recommended though.

As mentioned above, Korean shows rated 19+ will have the following disclaimer at the beginning of them:
이 프로그램은 19세 미만의 청소년이 시청하기에 부적절한 프로그램입니다.
(This program is prohibited for children under the age of 19.)
The Korean says it's inappropriate, not prohibited. It's on a streaming channel, there is no way they could enforce a ban, even if they wanted, in a free society like Korea.

The 청소년관람불가 label means restricted, no?

The Korea Times says, “The 19+ rating allows only those aged 19 or over to watch the content”.

https://m.koreatimes.co.kr/pages/article.amp.asp?newsIdx=289407

This Wikipedia article says the red 청불 label means teenagers restricted.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korea_Media_Rating_Board

This too says audience restricted to adults:

Let’s ask some Koreans today and see what they say.

Illegal, and restricted, do not mean the same thing. You clearly said 'Illegal' in italic in one of your early posts. Saying it's illegal is false.

Not allowed means not allowed. The movie theater ticket seller is not permitted to sell a ticket to a Korean under 19 for a 19+ movie. That’d be illegal. Joker got a 15+ rating in Korea. Parasite got a 15+ rating.

Not allowed is not codified by law. The Korean word for illegal is 불법.

Yes, selling a ticket for a 19+ movie to a teen would be illegal, but the teen actually watching it isn't. Also, in the case for Squid Game there is no actual selling going on, it's on a streaming site. It's not recommended for teens to watch, and may even be restricted, but it isn't illegal for the teen to watch it.

No, there is selling going on. Netflix costs money. One must verify their age to get an account. The problem is parents leave themselves logged in to the account. Another way to see the show is via illegal download or illegal streaming site that uses a server hidden in a country with ineffective law enforcement. These sites make revenue from ads and infecting visitors with malware that mines crypto using their computer’s power. 청 means minors; 불 means not. Not for minors is what Korean Netflix says. Kids can access all kinds of things online. Some of which is not legal. Is it legal for a minor in the United States to see an NC-17 movie? I thought illegal. Am I wrong?

A prohibition is a law, no?

I’m gonna ask a lot of Koreans about the rating system today. Hopefully other forum users will too and report back what was learned.

Jumping in to agree with pkjh, it's not illegal for minors to watch it.

It's only prohibited for businesses and certain other establishments to allow minors to access the content outside of a home, although this can be waived with parental consent.

Ultimately, it's regarded as a parental right, and businesses are regulated so that parents can make that decision for their kids. The content isn't illegal, them watching it isn't illegal, but providing them access to that content when you're not the parent and while under certain conditions (or a lack of them) is.

Just because you believe something should be illegal, it doesn't make it illegal. The prohibitions you've listed all function within certain guidelines. They're not blanket bans on anything, they only restrict based on a set of parameters.

As for Netflix, it does its part by providing the ratings and warnings for parents to read and consider, and by also providing parents with the option to block content that they don't want their kids watching. If parents don't heed those warnings or use those blocks, it's on them.

Anyway, aside from that, I do believe that using Squid Game as a basis for any school material is questionable, even if you keep it censored. Not really appropriate. But it's not really going to hurt students, either, as long as you keep it clean and don't use any video media or inappropriate pics. Neither does it break any laws as long as you follow that guideline. If your school/coteachers are fine with it, then it's fine. If you don't personally like it, you don't have to use it.

I personally won't use Squid Game content in my classroom, but that's mostly because I don't think the series deserves all the praise it's getting, and I don't want to give it any more attention.  :laugh:

So far I asked one teacher, the one who is the most knowledgeable and intelligent in my opinion and also the best at English.

Me: “Does the 19+ rating mean illegal to be seen by a person under 19?”
Her: “Yes, it means illegal.”

That’s what I got so far. Gonna ask more Koreans. Feel free to do this yourself, readers.

Maybe ask an actual legal expert instead of random Koreans, lol. KTs are not an authority on law. Like why would what they say about it have any more weight than what anyone else has to say about it? You're just looking for people to agree with you at this point, you're not looking for facts.

But go on, waste your time. Just a tip, though, while you're asking your average random Korean for their opinions, you might want to expand the question so that you can get the specifics. If you're asking KTs, they'll give you a blanket answer, even when it doesn't fit the entire scope of the question. You might get more nuanced answers if you push for specifics, like I did back when I asked my coT this question a few years ago. He answered the same way, "Yes, it's illegal," but he was only answering under the assumption that I meant in school. When I pushed him for more details, he admitted that students could watch it outside of school and that it wasn't illegal.

"But they shouldn't," he quipped right after. "It's not good."

Me: But it's not illegal for them to watch it at home, right?
Him: ... no, but they shouldn't. Their parents wouldn't like it.
Me: What if their parents are okay with it?
Him: *laughs* Yeah, they still shouldn't.

Not illegal. People just think it should be, and they treat it that way.

This is actually a common problem among the general public pretty much everywhere, it's a big enough issue that it was a recurring topic in my CJ management class.
