This year's Halloween szn showcased the ~creativity~ of many celebs and a popular theme would be the hit Netflix series, Squid Game. Some wore the outfit of the creepy doll Younghee, while others channeled their inner player with a green tracksuit. And then there's Darren Espanto who dressed up as Hwang Jun Hoand you guys, we're not the only ones who were impressed!

If you can remember, Hwang Jun Ho is the police officer who sneaked his way into the game's venue in high hopes of finding his hyung (older brother). Later on in the drama, he disguised as one of the armed men by wearing a pink tracksuit and a mask with a triangle shape on it (which, BTW, is inspired by the world ants according to director Hwang Dong Hyuk).
