Money Heist ended with its fifth season in 2021, leaving fans with a Salvador Dal mask-shaped hole in their hearts. This means that fans will be overjoyed to learn that they will soon be able to relive the magic thanks to Netflix’s announcement of a Korean adaptation of the Spanish crime drama. Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area is the current title of the new series.
Consumption of South Korean media, particularly K-Dramas, has increased rapidly over the last decade. Netflix has expended enormous effort in acquiring some of the best and most recent K-Dramas available, quickly establishing itself as one of the best streaming services for K-Drama-related content.
The addition of the Korean adaptation of Money Heist to Netflix’s library only adds to its value. BH Entertainment and Content Zium are producing the show.
Kim Hong-sun, who has worked on K-Dramas such as Voice and The Guest, will direct the series. Ryu Yong-Jae, the screenwriter for the Netflix Original series My Holo Love, will write the screenplay for the upcoming adaptation. Choe Sung-jun and Kim Hwan-Chae will collaborate on the project.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area: What Can We Expect? The plot will be very similar to the Spanish version of the show, with some notable differences.
Filming began on September 18th, 2021, and continued for several months before ending on January 18th, 2022. The conclusion of filming coincided with the release of the teaser trailer for the series. The entire shoot takes place in Seoul, South Korea.
We should only be a few months away from completion now that the drama is in post-production.
The new series is set to premiere in 2022, but no specific date has been announced.
Thanks to the teaser trailer released, we’ve gotten our first look at the Korean adaptation of Money Heist. Although an official release is still months away, we expect to learn more sooner than expected.
According to the information provided in the announcement, Money Heist creator Alex Pina will not be involved in the series’ production. The first season of Money Heist will consist of 12 episodes. Each episode will be 60 minutes in length.
