The final season of Money Heist (Spanish: La Casa de Papel) was released on Netflix in December 2021, but fans will be able to relive the pleasure owing to Netflix’s announcement of a Korean version of the popular crime thriller series, dubbed Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area.
With the growing popularity of Netflix’s K-drama titles like Squid Game, the streaming giant continues to add original South Korean material to its collection, and the inclusion of the Korean remake of Money Heist will no doubt excite fans of both the original Spanish series and k-drama titles.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area
Kim Hong-sun, who previously worked on K-dramas such as The Guest and Voice, directed Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area.
Ryu Yong-Jae, who also wrote the Netflix original series My Holo Love, was the screenwriter for the new adaptation.
It’ll undoubtedly be one of the most eagerly awaited South Korean Netflix series in 2022.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area Release Date
In late April 2022, Netflix has confirmed the release date of Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area: June 24, 2022.
The series will have a total of 12 episodes, and they will most likely be released at the same time on Netflix.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area Trailer
Netflix released a teaser trailer for the show on January 18. The Professor is standing in front of a wall before the film begins, carrying a variety of traditional Korean masks in addition to the famous Salvador Dali mask from the Spanish version.
He reaches out to select one of the masks, but the camera pans away before the audience can see which mask he has chosen.
After the teaser ends, the camera shifts to Seon Woojin, the team’s captain, in a control room.
The teaser video ends with each heist participant being introduced, along with their code names and initials.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area, according to the trailer, will be the title of the adaptation, which is a fitting title for the picture.

Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Plot
The Korean replica, which will serve as a fresh version of the immensely adored Netflix original, is likely to follow the same premise as the original.
It implies that a gang of thieves led by the Professor will attempt to pull off a complex heist while avoiding notice by the authorities.
However, based on the official title, it’s likely that the show will focus on Korea’s socioeconomic struggle on both sides of the border.
It’s possible that the phrase “Joint Economic Area” refers to the Joint Security Area. North and South Korea are pitted against one another in this demilitarized zone.
