나홀로숨박꼭질 (Hide-and-Seek Alone)
Playing hide-and-seek alone is pretty popular in Korea and Japan. There are numerous posts from people who have actually tried this. A lot of people say it works, and that they felt that their lives were threatened.
The meaning of this play is "If you can find me, you can have my body."
This "play" is necromancy - it is potentially very dangerous. It is not recommended that you do it, even if you're curious. Because if done correctly, this WILL work.
This play is not good for your sanity.
- A doll with legs. Not a human doll, since there's a great possibilty that the spirit will not leave the doll. Don't use a doll that you like because of the same reason. The doll will be a place for the spirit to come.
- Rice. The spirit that eats this offering is said to grow stronger.
- Red thread. This later symbolizes blood and acts as a restraint.
- Something from your body. It's usually fingernails, but some use their own blood, skin, hair, etc. It becomes a curse if you use someone else's body parts.
- Weapon. Something to stab the doll so that you can anger it. Real knives are dangerous, so most people use pencil or needle.
- Salt/Saltwater or alcohol. Without this, the game won't end. The material is used to get rid of the spirit.
- Safety place. You NEED a safe sanctuary, somewhere preferrably with lots of crosses, god statues, etc.
- A name. Giving the spirit a name is the most powerful thing a human can give to the spirit. Names give spirits great power.
1.Cut the doll and replace the foam/stuffing with rice.
2. Place something from your body into the doll.
3. Wrap the doll with a red thread as if to hinder(stop) the doll.
4. In a bathroom, pour water onto a large washbasin and find a place to hide.
5. Place a cup of salt water in the place before starting the game.
Start at 3 AM, since that is the time where spirits are the most free to move.
Give the doll a name (for example: Bob).
When the clock strikes 3, close your eyes and say, "First tagger is (doll name)! First tagger is (doll name)! First tagger is (doll name)!"
When talking to the doll, you MUST talk sternly.
Now go to the bathroom and place the doll in the washbasin.
Turn off all lights.
Close your eyes and count to 10, get your prepared weapon and go to the bathroom.
Go to the doll in the washbasin and say
"I found you (doll name)!"
And stab the doll.
After that, close your eyes again and say
"Now (doll name) is it! Now (doll name) is it! Now (doll name) is it!"
Place the weapon next to the doll and go to your hiding (safety) place. You MUST lock the door.
Also, lock all windows and doors.
Place the salt water in your mouth. DO NOT SPIT IT OUT. The salt water will protect you from the spirit.
To end the game:
When you want to end the game, take leftover salt water or alcohol and find the doll.
The doll may not be in the bathroom. (There are instances of the doll being outside).
When you find the doll, spit out the salt water and spray the leftover.
Close your eyes and shout
"I win! I win! I win!"
The doll will give up.
It is advised to burn the doll after the game.
-You MUST play this game alone. If more than one person does this at the same time, there's a great chance that someone will be possessed.
- Do NOT go outside the house.
- Keep the game under 2 hours. After this time, the spirit will be too strong to remove.
- When hiding, you MUST be silent.
- Turn off all electronics before starting.
- When running away, do NOT look back. Only look forward. And don't sleep while playing - the doll may stab you.
- When discovered by the doll, you can get a small wound or be possessed. When the doll finds you, your weapon will be around the floor or in your pocket, so you must be careful.
- After the game is over, it is important to clean up properly. Spray salt on every corner of the house, especially places where you put the doll and where you found it. Salt scares away any spirits.
People say that usually the TV flips channels on its own, perfectly normal lights flicker, the TV volume seems to change, doors seem to open and shut on their own, or you can hear the sound of laughter.
Real-life stories and comments:
1. I was easily scared, so I carefully studied the process and started the game. My friend had tried it, and she said that when he accidentally made a sound, the spirit scratched at her door. Hearing this, I was super curious.
Luckily my brother and parents went to spend the night at my grandparent's house, so I started to prepar immediately.
Since the salt was needed to end and since I was a scaredycat, I mixed in alcohol and saltwater to make a veeeeeeerry strong spirit-remover.
I only left on the TV and turned off any other electronics. It was my turn to be it.
I seriously did NOT want to be hurt, so I used a mechanical pencil to stab the doll.
Then I ran inside the closet of the master bedroom, and placed the ending salt-mixture in my mouth.
At first, it was boring.
Did I read too much scary stories?
Maybe I should have just texted friends instead of doing this.
That's what I thought.
As if hallucinating,
the TV channel started to turn and I could hear
"Where. Are. You?"
just as the channels were turning.
I could only think that.
This kind of thing was IN THE COMMENTS OF THE AFTERMATH OF THE GAME.
Then the sound of a woman's laugh.
The laughter sounded like my laugh,
and the sound through the TV didn't stop.
My only thought was,
'I HAVE TO END THIS.'
Really, that was all.
So I ran out the closet and went to the bathroom to find the doll.
But on the way, I stepped on something.
the Pooh doll
That I had prepared.
I really wanted to faint, but I always afraid I would get hurt if I fainted, and ended the game.
The doll should have been in the bathroom which is across the hallway,
it was next to the bed.
WITH THE PENCIL IN ITS HAND.
The next day, I got rid of the doll and the rice separately.
2. I have a high ESP, but I was curious to try this game.
So I did it when I went over to my grandparent's house.
(My gradparents live in a Buddist-temple styled house on an island. And I always have prayer beads and talisman with me)
Since there was no bathtub, I just placed the washbin and doll in the front yard....
And when I was about to hide!!!
The dog in the yard started barking like crazy!!!!
Then as if scared, it ran away somewhere.
So after a while....
Although the adults and the children were playing at the beach...
Although I was alone...
Quite footsteps echoed throughout the house....
And stopped in front of the attic door that I was hiding behind.
"OPEN THE DOOR!! YOU'RE THERE, AREN'T YOU?? I KNOW IT! COME OUT NOW!"
With that sound, the door shook as if it was going to break.
I had prayer beads, but I was a Catholic
So I started to say the Lord's Prayer and the Apostle's Creed.
Then I sprayed the salt and red beans (which also ward off spirits) that I had like a mad woman.
Then that "someone" outside got even angrier and said,
"YOU PIECE OF SHIT THAT SHIT DOESN'T WORK ON ME SO OPEN THIS FUCKING DOOR!!!!"
AH..... I really thought I was going to die.
I was saved by a my tired little sibling,
but that was really a traumatic experience.
Please don't do this necromancy.
Especially if you have a high ESP like me!
3.This was 3 years ago, when I was in 5th grade.
I don't remember the exact reason why, but I was alone and was in the house alone at night.
I was surfing through the net and found this game, and luckily the time was after 1 AM.
I guess I wasn't scared or something... So I decided to play the game.
I took a countrygirl? doll and did the steps. (but I didn't put anything from my body).
I was late in preparing so when I got the knife and the saltwater ready, it was already 2 minutes before 3 AM.
I turned off the computer, the lights of the living room and kitchen, and went into the bathroom.
I didn't look at the clock carefully, but I remember thinking, "I guess it's about 3 now."
And did the chants (chants? is that what they're called?).
Then I went into the guest room next to the bathroom, counted to 10, and went out and stabbed the dall.
Then I came in the guest room, closed the door, turned the TV on, and took the salt water and cellphone into the closet.
I could hear the TV and was waiting... I don't remember how much time had passed,
But soon static noise mixed in with the audio of the TV show.
Pretty quickly all I could hear was static noise.
It was a bit creepy, but the TV in the guest room did that a few times before
so I tried not to mind it too much. But then...
I could hear the sound from the TV "knock""knock""knock""knock"
It was mixed with the static noise, but it sounded
As if A HAND HAD COME OUT OF THE TV (it was next to the closet) and was knocking on the closet door.
That knock sounded about 10 times before stopping.
I was so nervous, I couldn't breathe even after the sound had stopped.
But soon, the noise level STARTED TO DECRASE AND INCREASE.
It would get loud as if to burst my eardrums and then quiet as if the TV was off.
Then suddenly the TV turned off. I thought 'What....?' and stopped my breath and waited
And the TV turned on again... With sound.
(TV on and off)
(TV on and off)
(TV on and off)
(TV off, and after a while turns on)
(TV on and off)
Then static noise came. I can remember that sound clearly.
As the channel was flipping, one word sound out (for instance, at channel A 'Where' then at channel B 'Are'... like that).
The middle 'Come out!' sounded as if it came from a TV drama. It didn't count out one word at a time
But was rather like a scene where a woman was screaming.
Then the TV turned off. And IT DIDN'T TURN ON FOR QUITE SOME TIME.
I was so scared, I didn't want to go outside.
I wanted to call someone so I took out my cellphone. But my phone accessory made a clinking sound as they hit each other (I had a mini-mirror, USB, accessory, etc._
AT THAT MOMENT THE TV TURNED ON.
Then the TV turned off, and I clutched my cellphone and stayed still.
Ifelt that I shouldn't make any sound.
Then the TV turned on again,
With that loud sound, the TV didn't turn off and static noise came again.
Then this time, with the static noise,
I was veery scared, but it sounded like it hadn't found me yet since it said that it'll find me.
So with the saltwater in my mouth, I ran out the closet.
(I didn't know it at the time, but the TV WAS OFF when I came out... I had TURNED ON THE TV when I first came in)
I opened the door and turned on the bathroom light,
AND THE DOLL WAS ON THE FLOOR WITH THE KNIFE.
The soaked doll looked as if it was trying to crawl out of the basin. The knife was thrown across the floor...
I was so shocked, that I opened my mouth. Luckily, the saltwater fell on the doll and I took the knife and ripped the doll to pieces,
And turned on every light in the house. Kitchen, living room, TV in the living room, balcony, etc.
I didn't look at the clock and went to the kitchen to get a wrap, white plastic bag, and a black trash bag
And wrapped the doll, stabbed it with the knife a few more times, and with the knife I wrapped about 5 plastic bags around it
And tied it tightly in the trash bag. I was still hestitant so I wrapped it with a tape.
Then I could finally relax and breathe.
I looked at the time as I walked out into the living room and the CLOCK WAS POINTING AT 3:05.
All this happened in only 5 minutes....??!!
It should have been 5 minutes past when I started hearing the knocking noises...
No, taking care of the doll after the game should have taken longer than 5 minutes....
But all of this combined... IN ONLY 5 MINUTES?
