Money Heist: Korea: Netflix Release Date, Cast & Story

It was revealed not too long ago that Netflix was making Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area and people want to know when it’ll be released.

They also want to know who will be starring in it and what the story will be.

We’re here to try and answer all of those questions for you.

Now, this show isn’t quite a Korean remake of the incredible Spanish-language series, which was just called Money Heist (or La Casa De Papel in Spanish).

That show recently came to an end after five seasons.

In June 2020, it was reported that BH Entertainment was planning for a remake of Money Heist co-producing it with Zium Content.

They were in talks with Netflix, and it was in the development stage.

On December 1st, it was reported that a Korean remake of the series has been confirmed by Netflix with Kim Hong-sun as director and Ryu Yong-jae as scriptwriter.

BH Entertainment would be in charge of production, with the series having 12 episodes.

We don’t know too much about the story since it will be based on the original Money Heist series, but will not follow the exact same storyline.

The show has definitely been changed a lot from the original series.

It was revealed that when coming up with the idea for this new Money Heist series, the focus was to keep the narrative of the original and the physical properties of the characters alive.

It was also revealed that the Korean characters and cast were compared drawing the similarities and differences between the original and the adaptation.

The series has been described as being both a remake and spin-off/continuation of the Spanish TV drama.

The story will follow characters that are similar to the ones from the original series.

There will be a Korean version of “The Professor” (played by Yoo Ji-tae).

He’s a strategist criminal mastermind and plans to pull off a heist in Korean Peninsula inspired by those in Spain.

Rather than robbing the Royal Mint in Spain, this crew of criminals will occupy the Joint Economic Area in Korea.

The Joint Economic Area is the border between South and North Korea.

It’s going to be very interesting to see how it all pans out in Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area.
