Catchup – The Code: Secret Room (코드 – 비밀의 방)
– view online
Premiering in January 2016, The Code: Secret Room was inspired by the escape room trend in South Korea.
Ten contestants start in the basement on Level 8 and need to solve puzzles hidden around the floor. The puzzles reveal clues called “Main Codes”, which help contestants determine what the pass code for the door is.
The contestant enters the passcode to escape the floor and then takes the elevator to progress to the next round – where another floor awaits (Level 7 and so on). During each episode, a contestant gets eliminated and the winner of the series is the first person to escape from Level 1.
“This isn’t a program where we are given a problem and we have to solve it,” announcer Choi Song-hyun said, introducing the program and its appeal. “It all starts with finding the problem to solve (to escape the room) in the first place. – KoreaHerald
