‘Money Heist Korea’ trailer released by Netflix ahead of June release

A gang of thieves, including Tokyo, a former soldier, come together under the leadership of a mastermind named Professor to plan an unprecedented heist – to steal money that doesn’t exist yet! If this sounds familiar to you, it should.

The twist is that Netflix hit series La Casa De Papel (Money Heist) got a cool Korean favour.

First footage is now available. And the K-Drama reimagining “Money Heist: Korea Common Economic Space Part 1” will premiere on June 24th.

The twist in the plot is that Korea is on the verge of unification and there is a common security area – located where modern-day North and South Korea are divided – which houses a mint, which becomes the focus of the plot will.

In the midst of the reunification process, the mint is printing a new single currency as the basis for building a stable common economy. But despite people’s hopes for unification, only the rich seem to have gotten richer.

The only thing standing between the gangsters and their prize is a joint task force led by a South Korean negotiation specialist and a North Korean agent.

The new show is directed by Kim Hong-sun and produced by BH Entertainment and Zium Content for Netflix.

“I was intrigued by the premise of the remake because it not only deals with the conflict between robbers and police, but also adds new layers of tension, mistrust and harmony between North and South Korea,” said author Ryu Yong – jae, who was also a big fan of the original Spanish series. “[It is] a situation where thieves from North and South Korea are ganging up and police from North and South are ganging up to block their way, [adding] a Korean lens to the original IP.”

The teaser also highlights fan-favorite characters — Professor played by Yoo ji-tae, Tokyo played by Jung Jong-seo, and Berlin played by Park Hae-soo from “Squid Game” — all in iconic red jumpsuits with traditional Hahoe masks.

“The original ‘Money Heist’ showed how great storytelling can be loved anywhere, and Korean content has proven that it has the same power. We can’t wait to see how the world will react as we fuse this epic story with top Korean talent and a passionate global fandom,” said Keo Lee, director of content at Netflix Korea.
