    8th November 2021 – (Hong Kong) A netizen shared pictures on the Facebook Page, Subtle Asian Traits recently on a  Squid Game-themed confection-making challenge during weeding. The groom and the groomsmen were required to participate in the challenge to cut the candy, called dalgona which was made from a mixture of sugar and baking soda into a sophisticated Chinese character “Double Happiness”. The word is often used as Chinese traditional ornament design, commonly used as a decoration symbol of marriage.

    Many netizens mocked the move and some said the bride might not see the groom again and some said ‘R.I.P., groom’. A netizen suggested the groom to learn from the Netflix series and lick the candy to make the task easier. It is unknown where the wedding took place.
