Netflix’s Spanish-crime series, Money Heist or as it's locally known, La Casa de Papel was a massive hit on the streaming platform. It became Netflix’s most-watched non-English series that spun five seasons which recently just wrapped up. A total of 65 million households watched the series and subsequently garnered a cult-following as seen in the Netflix special, Money Heist: The Phenomenon.
It doesn’t come as a surprise that the global hit show will be getting a Korean remake, given the popularity of Korean dramas as well as its brilliant portfolio of other well-made remakes such as Cold Eyes and Heart Blackened.
With a release date sometime in 2022, Netflix has just revealed the remake’s title and a special teaser that provides a sneak peek of the Korean crew’s symbolic mask. Read below to find out everything you need to know about the Korean adaptation.
1. The title
Netflix confirms that the Korean adaptation will be titled Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area. It’s a mouthful but the title hints at how the plot may take place.
It will follow the Professor (Yoo Ji-tae) and his talented crew of top-class thieves as they attempt to pull off an unprecedented heist and stage a hostage situation in the Korean peninsula, which is somewhat loyal to the original series.
