The series “The 8 Show” is the second most watched series on Netflix in France.

NETFLIX – Perhaps the worthy heir of Squid Game. Since Friday May 17, The 8 Show is available on Netflix. In a few days, this Korean series consisting of 8 episodes has climbed into the ten most watched series of the moment on the streaming platform. In France, she even sits in second place on the podium, just behind season 3 of The Bridgertons Chronicle, the first 4 episodes of which were posted online on May 16 on Netflix.

Worn by actors Chun Woo-hee (The Strangers), Lee Yul-eum (Nevertheless), or Ryu Jun-yeol (Believer) this dramatic thriller seems to have found its audience as evidenced by the comments of spectators on X (formerly Twitter) who were probably convinced by the concept of the series.

A reality TV series

The 8 Show follows eight contestants who participate in a television show. The goal of the game is simple: participants must remain confined for 100 days in an eight-story building in Seoul. If they achieve this goal, then they will share the 44.8 billion won promised in the event of victory (around 30 million euros).

Check out the trailer below:

However, the rules of the game are not clearly explained to them at the start, and the players are not all treated in the same way. This unfair system is deliberately implemented by production in order to push participants to the limit and test their resistance to stress and tension.

If the synopsis of The 8 Show is reminiscent of that of Squid Game, another hit korean series, this series is actually inspired by webtoons Pie Game And Money Game by South Korean comic book artist Bae-Jin Soo. To date Netflix has not confirmed whether a season 2 of The 8 Show was considered.
