A reality show based on the webtoon “Money Game” is in the works. The social experiment “Money Game,” based on the webtoon of the same name, is a five-episode reality program in which eight participants compete in brain games for $300,000 in prize money.
The first episode of the show debuted on the Jubilee YouTube channel on March 15th. Strangers have agreed to spend 10 days separated in separate cells in this facility. They will pool their resources in order to survive, and whatever they do not spend, they will keep.
Before it became this reality show in the United States, “Money Game” was made into another reality show in Korea in 2021. The participants in the game had a lot of trouble during their stay in the facility with no infrastructure, not only with their basic necessities but also with their conflicts with one another.
The Korean version of the reality show “Money Game” can be viewed with English subtitles on Jin Young Jin’s YouTube channel.
The original webtoon “Money Game” was created by Bae Jin-Soo and was serialized on Naver Webtoon between 2018 and 2020. The official English version of the webtoon was released on WEBTOON in 2021.
In addition to reality shows, “Money Game” is being adapted into a drama series, which will star well-known actors such as Ryu Jun-yeol and Lee Ji-Eun (IU). The release date of the drama “Money Game” has not yet been announced as of March 2022.
