Netflix Just Dropped Official ‘Money Heist: Korea’ Trailer


Netflix on Friday dropped off the official trailer for Money Heist: Korea — Joint Economic Area, an upcoming remake of the streamer’s popular Spanish crime drama series under the same moniker, or La Casa De Papel.

The 12-episode series, which is helmed by Kim Hong-Sun, will be set in a fictional Joint Economic Area, where “the Korean Peninsula faces reunification,” according to the streamer. Additionally, the show will see a new cast take on the characters from the originalseries: Professor (Yoo Ji-tae), Berlin (Park Hae-soo), Tokyo (Jun Jong-seo), Moscow (Lee Won-jong), Denver (Kim Ji-hun), Nairobi (Jang Yoon-ju), Rio (Lee Hyun-woo), Helsinki (Kim Ji-hoon) and Oslo (Lee Kyu-ho).

In the trailer, the Professor outlines what to expect from the upcoming series in a voiceover: “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. Of all the money heists, we’ll pull off the biggest one yet. The public will watch this greatest show on earth live and they will root for us.”

Money Heist: Korea — Joint Economic Area will premiere on Netflix on June 24. Watch the trailer above.
