For those who haven’t watched “Round 6”, the plot shows a group of people with millionaire debts looking for a prize that will change their lives if they participate in a mysterious game divided into six stages.
Throughout the tasks, 456 participants from all walks of life are locked in a secret place where they play to win 45.6 billion won.
Each game is a traditional Korean children’s game, but the consequence of loss is death. Who will be the winner and what is the goal of this game?
