The trailer for the South Korean reality series Mermaid: Survive the Island arrived, giving us a glimpse of a group of fit, buff women who engage in grueling physical ordeals. Bring your tongue back into your mouth.
A 10-episode Netflix series, Mermaid: Survive the Island will divide 24 women into six teams according to their profession. This includes firefighters, soldiers, police officers, athletes, bodyguards and stuntmen, all of whom will be competing to see which team comes out on top.
It doesn’t seem easy either. Challenges include chopping wood, carrying poles while hopelessly mired in mud, and even physically fighting. No matter who wins, it’s guaranteed to be a hard-fought victory.
Mermaid: Survive the Island(opens in a new tab) arrives May 30 on Netflix.
