Everything We Know About 'Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area'

The Korean adaptation of the beloved 'La casa de papel' premieres worldwide on June 24

In 2020, Netflix announced a Korean adaptation of one of its biggest titles — a version of La casa de papel (or Money Heist) was to be set on the Korean Peninsula, helmed by Kim Hong-sun, who has worked on shows like The Guest, Voice, and Black.


This month, that highly anticipated adaptation — this time called Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area — arrives on the streaming platform, and this time, instead of a Dalí mask, our team of thieves will be donning a traditional Hahoe mask.

Starring Yoo Ji-tae (of Old Boy fame), Park Hae-soo (Squid Game), Jang Yoon-ju (Veteran), and more, Money Heist: Korea follows an unprecedented heist on the chaotic dystopian peninsula of North and South Korea as they reach "the verge of peaceful yet sudden unification."


As in the original, the heist is masterminded by the Professor, and he recruits his crew, made up of Berlin, Tokyo, Moscow, Denver, Nairobi, Rio, Helsinki, and Oslo. "To me, the Professor is a genius strategist who plans the heist through his principles and visions," said Yoo.


In the gallery below, the rest of the crew, and their histories and skills.
