“Ending Up In A Grave” — Survival Show “GIRL’S RE:VERSE” Shocks Viewers With Its “Dramatic” Way Of Eliminating Contestants

“Squid Game for singers.”

Kakao Entertainment is producing a new survival show, called GIRL’S RE:VERSE, which features 30 active girl group idols competing via virtual avatars. The premise is supposed to encourage the audience to vote based on the skills and personalities of the contestants rather than their visual charms. The top five contestants will debut as a virtual girl group at the end of the show.

Although the contestants’ identities are hidden, fans believe they have already been able to confidently identify the contestants through their voices and mannerisms.

Despite some previous issues with virtual avatars, the new survival show has just started airing, and viewers are already intrigued by the unique concept.

But one unexpected part of the show’s premise that is receiving attention from netizens is what happens to the contestants once they’re eliminated.

In addition to having their identities revealed, when a contestant on GIRL’S RE:VERSE is eliminated, they will be “buried” on the hill in the virtual world.
