10 K-Pop Idols Who Could Totally Win “Squid Game”

Who do you think could battle their way through “Red Light, Green Light” and “Tug of War?”

The challenges in Netflix‘s new K-Drama Squid Game make events like the Idol Star Athletics Championship look like child’s play. But, if idols were unlucky enough to find themselves competing in Squid Game, who would win? Here are 10 stars who would definitely ace it, according to fans.

1. Vernon (SEVENTEEN)

SEVENTEEN Vernon’s ability to stay perfectly still would get him over that “Red Light, Green Light” finish line before anyone else.

2. Jeonghan (SEVENTEEN)

Given Jeonghan’s hilarious reputation for cheating at games, fans are convinced he’d be able to bend the rules in his favor.

3. Irene (Red Velvet)

Red Velvet’s Irene works smarter, not harder, so there’s no doubt she’d find the loopholes that would get her through the game.

4. Chaeryeong (ITZY)

When it comes to winning, no one is safe from ITZY Chaeryeong’s competitive streak.

5. Chaeyeon (former IZ*ONE)

Meanwhile, with four survival shows under her belt (K-Pop Star 3, SIXTEEN, Produce 48, and Street Woman Fighter), former IZ*ONE’s Lee Chaeyeon would have no trouble adding a fifth with Squid Game.

6. Minho (SHINee)

If you’ve ever seen SHINee’s Minho in a competition, you know there’s no explanation needed here.

7. Hyojung (OH MY GIRL)

OH MY GIRL Hyojung’s determination is so entertaining to watch, the other players would totally get distracted and end up losing.

8. Saerom (fromis_9)

You would not want to be matched against fromis_9’s Saerom in the tug of war match if this is anything to go by.

9. Jessica (former Girls’ Generation)

If there was an actual giant squid in Squid Game, we have proof former Girls’ Generation member would take it on.

10. Hyemi (9Muses)

If being the only member who lasted through 9Muses’ entire nine year existence is anything to go by, Hyemi could be the contestant who lasts until the end.
