Yeah, great find emoticon It's not too bad. Certainly nowhere near the worst remake there's been

Re: Korean Version


I'm bringing this old topic back to life after discovering over 27 minutes of game footage including Honeycomb Maze and Skipping Stones. There's also a Mushroom Trip that uses a yellow drum with ET on the top (WTF?! emoticon ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_XS0lt7v3I

And that's not all. They also had the Takeshi's Castle board games over there too with the art work slightly altered: https://m.blog.naver.com/PostView.naver?isHttpsRedirect=true&blogId=abc1135&logNo=110184452059

Re: Korean Version


Nice find!

It actually starts pretty similarly to the original with the General interviewing and the contestants running past the screen (although that scene took forever, it was more like a proper game of Muddy Waters!).

The first game is a sort of combination of Slippery Wall and Slipped Disks. Hard to follow the action, but not bad for what it is.

Then we have a group pachinko-type game. Seems you can't have any contact with these balls? They're going in mini groups like Flag Down or group Grid Iron. From the angle I was just looking at it, this slope actually seems really steep!

Honeycomb Maze just feels a bit cramped and the above camera angles are too closeup. Some angles also feel like they're upside-down! Wait, a lady just attempted to escape the guards by jumping through another door outside the maze and it just cut to the next player. In the original and most remakes that would be fair play (and actually an impressive move) emoticon Everyone waits so close to the front of the Maze in that big line. Success! This must be the lady that was singing as they both are #103.

Okay, so even the good stones sort of drop. Or do they all just give equally? This is very reminiscent of the early episodes of the original with the next competitor starting as the previous competitor is still in the water. This isn't the same thing, but it gets the job done. Actually, maybe it's a bit on the easier side.

Okay, yeah this Mushroom Trip spinoff is just weird! Not only the ET thing, but having contestants pushing contestants, a shorter cylinder and such a flimsy looking landing.! Oh, this one stops spinning badly - worse than early Thailand's. And what motivation do the contestants have to twist it up enough? At least we see the landing platform works! And that last guy was able to go down the track while just hanging from the handle and not using the stalk emoticon

I'm confused, they showed someone crossing the bridge for Bridge Ball, but the show seemed to be ending (or at least getting ready for Show Down). Weird.

I didn't originally plan on writing a whole review of it, but I did! Interesting how the three main games we saw are all right next to each other. How many games would you say they have? All in all, a better remake than I originally gave it credit for.

I don't believe the video is a full episode.

Re: Korean Version


Yeah, it seemed abrupt, but after ET Trip they did interviews (next to Bridge Ball) and it looked like they jumped through a monster mouth in the same vein as the tunnel in the original. Maybe it's just a transition, but it felt to me like they were preparing for the Show Down.

Re: Korean Version


The Korean version is... a thing. It's the same thing with the old Australian versions of The Price is Right, where I mention that it's "The Price is Right in Purgatory."

What I mean by that is that it's so close to, but still different than the original, that it feels like an alternate dimension.

Re: Korean Version


I wanted to use the term "Uncanny Valley," but that's for things that are too realistic.

But yeah, something like that emoticon

Re: Korean Version


Ah that makes sense! I knew your first post reminded me of another term and I took a minute to think of it, so when I finally figured out what was on the tip of my tongue I felt I had to post it emoticon
