A TikToker has gone viral after completing one of the challenges in the TV series Squid Game.

The challenge is popular in South Korea and involves a gingerbread cookie with the imprint of a mold in the middle.

Players must then try to break off the edges around the shape without breaking the shape itself.

The surprisingly difficult challenge on Squid Game, a very popular Korean TV series that premiered last month on Netflix.

Bayashi has already released four videos centered around the Dalgona cookie challenge, but has so far only managed to complete it once.

Another video that saw him fail at the challenge has so far clocked over 105.6 million views on TikTok.

Bayashi eventually succeeded by heating up a thin metal rod and using it to cut around the star shape in the center of his cookie.

After retrieving the intact star from the center of his cookie, he proudly held it up in front of the camera before eating it.

Squid Game follows hundreds of cash recruited for a Hunger Games-style tournament.

Although the tournament at first looks innocent, with popular children’s games at the center of many of the challenges, they quickly prove to be deadly.

Whoever wins the deadly games scores a cash prize of 45.6 million, but first they have to survive.
