Korea’s Something Special has acquired international licensing rights for the experimental reality game show "The Penthouse Game" which aired on July 2022 on Channel A and local streamer WAVVE. This show will be available for buyers to review at the LA Screenings Independent.

"The Penthouse Game" features individuals going through financial difficulties and competing for a cash prize. This thrilling competition features challenges to determine who will occupy the ultimate power of the penthouse. The players will utilize the gold tokens and move around using the elevator in the middle. There will be three hosts who will play different key roles in the show.

Jin Woo Hwang, Something Special President & Executive Producer stated: “Something Special is pleased to announce acquisitions for international licensing. We are honored that producers come to Something Special to take their shows out of Korea. 'The Penthouse Game' is already gaining traction in Korea and in select markets, and both are set to be audience favorites.”

Last month, Something Special has licensed two formats into Spain’s Mediawan. Veranda took Something Special’s spooky format "Still Alive" while Boomerang took celebrity competition format "Battle in the Box.", proving the global potential of its formats outside Korea.
