Money Heist Korea: This year, Netflix will release the South Korean remake. Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area is the official title of the next remake, according to a teaser trailer released on Tuesday (January 18).
The Professor, who is played by Yoo Ji-tae (When My Love Blooms), plots a heist in the teaser trailer. He stands in front of a wall, wearing many traditional Korean masks as well as the classic Salvador Dali mask from the Spanish original. Although the camera moves before viewers can see which one, he chooses, he reaches out to choose one.
The teaser then cuts to the chief of the Crisis Negotiation Team, Seon Woo-jin (played by Kim Yun-jin), in a control room. Each heist member and their code names are revealed at the end of the teaser trailer.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area has yet to be given a release date, but according to a press release, the show will premiere exclusively on Netflix later this year.
