Since the moment Netflix‘s Squid Game was released, we knew that it would end up taking over the season, especially when Halloween arrived!
So, as the day approaches closer and closer, we are starting to see more Squid Game-inspired content be released, especially by our favorite K-Pop idols. SM Entertainment artists have already hinted at a Squid Game theme for their annual Halloween party, SMTOWN Wonderland.
Who thinks they can do this one?
Because I, for one, am not confident.

While not everyone felt confident to take on the dalgona challenge, also known as ppopgi, there is one person who is more than ready for it!
GOT7‘s BamBam, who is now signed under the ABYSS Company, shared a video to his social media to get fans in the Halloween spirit. It began with him preparing the honeycomb-like candy dalgona, melting sugar.
Soon, he used a bird-shaped cutter to make the design of the candy after it began hardening. The bird is a sweet reference to the GOT7 fandom Ahgase (iGOT7), meaning “baby bird” in Korean!
Afterward, he got to work doing the dalgona challenge that Squid Game has popularized. In episode 3, “The Man With the Umbrella,” the contestants attempt to take out the shape of the candy without chipping it. Clearly, BamBam would have won!
Is it possible that he did so with help from Ahases by his side? On Instagram, he even pinned a fan’s comment that asked him to pin it if he misses fans!
BamBam does have a lot of experience actually beforehand. During a 2018 BuzzFeed interview, he and the rest of the GOT7 members prepared ppopgi, a.k.a. dalgona. Even then, he was so knowledgeable beforehand that he was able to explain the process to Yugyeom.
One thing is for sure BamBam would have no trouble winning Squid Game, and he loves Ahgases!
