Netflix announces release date for Korean Money Heist remake
On Monday, American streaming service Netflix announced it would release a remake of the Spanish series Money Heist later this year.
A 43-second trailer for the show, ‘Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area’, revealed that the new series would premiere on June 24.
The Spanish original ‘La Casa de Papel’ is about a mysterious criminal mastermind, ‘The Professor’ and his crew of skilled thieves who attempt an elaborate heist on Spain’s Royal Mint.
It became the most-watched non-English show in 2018 despite being sold to Netflix for just $2.
The new Korean version, directed by Kim Hong-sun, is expected to follow a similar plot to the original, and the 12-episode remake will feature ‘Squid Game’ actor Park Hae-soo, ‘Lost’ actress Yunjin Kim and Jeon Jong-Seo (‘Burning’), masked and in red boiler suits.
Traditional Korean Hahoetal masks will be used instead of the signature Salvador Dali mask and will have an ominous tone set from the beginning of the video with a voice-over intoning: “A robber who steals petty cash either gets killed after being chased or ends up in jail. But a robber who steals at a massive scale can change the world and even become a hero. We’ll pull off the biggest one of all the money heists yet.”
