In PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, frying pans aren't used for cooking but for melee and blocking bullets. Recently in South Korea, a politician brought a golden pan to an assembly to talk about the game's success.

"Battleground was made by a developer from our country," Congressman Lee is quoted as saying (via Sang). "The game has sold 12 million copies and have gone over 1.99 million concurrent players in 6 months. This is unprecedented in Korean gaming history."
Now that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a smash hit, its developer Bluehole Inc. is worth 5.2 trillion won ($US5.8 billion). No wonder the team at Bluehole that handled the game is being turned into a subsidiary called PUBG Corporation.
The politician then requested that the ministry provide a solid foundation for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds so that the country will see more success stories like this.
