Netflix releases the official trailer for the Korean Money Heist adaptation
Netflix has recently dropped the trailer for upcoming Korean remake of the very popular series- Money Heist. The series was very much loved by the audience and now its time for the K-drama Money Heist: Korea- Joint Economic Area to shine.
The La Casa De Papel finale gained major success and the popular OTT platform had announced the Korean remake of the series last year.
The storyline of the action-thriller series
The Korean remake will follow the similar footsteps as its Spanish predecessor in terms of the plot and the characters. The crime drama series will be directed by Kim Hong-sun and portray When my love blooms star Yoo Ji Tae as the professor planning to pull of the biggest heist ever in Korea.
The trailer exposes the first look of Seo Woo-jin (played by Kim Yunjin), the Task Force Team inspector, hinting at a probable hostage situation. We further get to see the Professor approaching a wall of masks, strategizing for the biggest heist in Korea.
The infamous Salvador Dalí mask is set in the center surrounded by many other masks which look similar to the traditional Korean Hahoe masks used in spiritual occassions. It’s not clear to the audience which mask the professor chooses as the shot is cut off as soon as he reaches his hand out.
Will the Korean remake live up to the hype?
The K-drama will start with 12 episodes in Season 1 unlike the Spanish version which made its debut with 15 episodes.
The series features a team of stellar cast members including Jun Jong-seo from Burning as Tokyo, acclaimed K-drama star Lee Won-jong as Moscow and Squid Game actor Park Hae-soo as Berlin.
The official release date has not been announced yet but it is expected to premiere sometime in 2022 itself.
Well, there have been many cases where the remakes are not able to surpass the original or live up to the expectations of the audience. However, with the amazing cast and a fresh take on the original series, we definitely have high hopes on Money Heist: Korea and we bet so does the audience. Fingers crossed!
