Netflix Drops Trailer, Launch Date For Korean Remake Of Money Heist
Money Heist: Korean - Joint Economic Area lands on Netflix on June 24.
Netflix has revealed the teaser and launch date for Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area, the highly anticipated remake of its hit Spanish crime drama Money Heist. The six-ep series will premiere on the streaming service on June 24.
Per synopsis, the series — directed by Kim Hong-Sun (Voice) — will be set against the backdrop of two Koreas creating a Joint Economic Area where North and South are on the verge of peaceful reunification. As the country makes way for a new unified currency, The Professor assembles a gang of top-class thieves (with famous cities as nicknames) to steal the cash straight from the mint and attempt to pull off an unprecedented heist in the Korean Peninsula.
The gang members are played by Yoo Ji-Tae (as the Professor), Park Hae-Soo (Berlin), Jun Jong-Seo (Tokyo), Lee Won-Jong (Moscow), Kim Ji-Hun (Denver), Jang Yoon-Ju (Nairobi), Lee Hyun-Woo (Rio), Kim Ji-Hoon (Helsinki), and Lee Kyu-Ho (Oslo). Lost’s Kim Yunjin plays Seon Woojin, the cop tasked with bringing them down.
The original Spanish series — whose original title is La Casa de Papel, or The House of Paper — was launched in 2017. It ended its fifth and final season last year.
