You should say:

- and explain why you think he/she did it in a smart way
2. Sample Answers
I’m going to talk about a fictional character that’s been extremely popular recently and how he solved a game cleverly. His name, I believe, is Gi-hun, and he’s the main protagonist of a Korean dystopian drama called “Squid Game”. In the series, he was a gambler who’s in serious debt. Long story short, he was recruited to a tournament which participants played children’s games to win a large sum of money. But the catch was that if they lost, they would lose their lives.
In the second game they played, each of the players was given a round and flat piece of honeycomb candy. In the middle of the candy, there’s a shape made by stamping a mold on it. The goal of the game was to use a needle to pick away the shape without breaking it. Honeycomb candy is brittle, so this was no easy task. It was even more challenging for Gi Hun as his shape was an umbrella.
In the beginning, he tried to painstakingly chip away the candy using the needle like the others. However, he seemed to run out of time because of the difficulty of the shape. Accidentally, a drop of his sweat dripped on the candy and softened it. He took advantage of that and started licking the back of the candy. The candy got softened to a point that he could separate the shape easily.
This scene is really significant because for the first time, it showed the main character to be clever and resourceful as opposed to his earlier image of being a failure. I really like the fact that they show an ordinary person can also be smart.

II. Topic: Squid Game trong IELTS Writing task 1
Từ khi bộ phim Squid Game xuất hiện, thử thách tách kẹo đang là xu hướng mới của nhiều giới trẻ. Tuy nhiên, có bạn nào đã biết quá trình làm kẹo dalgona chưa? Cùng UEC đi vào quá trình làm món kẹo đường này nhé!
1. Đề bài
The diagram below shows how to make one serving of “dalgona candy”, which is a vintage Korean Honeycomb toffee delicacy made with sugar and baking powder.
2. Sample Answers
Overall, the technique consists of seven steps, each of which necessitates the use of a variety of rudimentary equipment in order to manufacture the delicacy from the fundamental element of sugar.
To commence the process, the sugar is first placed in a ladle, which is then set over medium to low heat. Throughout this time, the substance is stirred until it is completely melted throughout this time. Simultaneously, a pinch of baking soda is mixed into the melted sugar and thoroughly combined.
Moving to the subsequent stage, the honeycomb mixture is then poured onto a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. While this mixture is cooling down, it is advised to use a presser to flatten the mixture slightly to an extent of forming a uniform surface. In the stage that follows, it is observed that an umbrella, triangle, circle, or star cookie cutters could be utilized with a gentle pressing force to create a shape at the heart of the produced candy. Ultimately, the process ends when the sweets are left to cool and enjoyed by the consumers.
