Money Heist’s upcoming Korean remake has landed a release date

Money Heist’s upcoming Korean remake has landed a release date for next month, alongside an intriguing new teaser.

The series, officially titled Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area, is based on the hit Spanish original – also known as La Casa de Papel – and boasts an impressive cast.

We now know when the first six episodes will drop, with Netflix confirming a June 24 premiere date for Part 1.

In a teaser, a man’s voice is heard over shots of the masks – which are inspired by the traditional Korean Hahoe masks – before we get a glimpse at the full team.

“A robber who steals petty cash either gets killed after being chased or ends up in jail,” he says. “But a robber who steals at a massive scale can change the world and even become a hero.

“Of all the money heists we’ll pull off the biggest one yet. The public will watch the greatest show on Earth live. And they will root for us.”

The show’s cast includes Squid Game’s Park Hae-soo as Berlin, Parasite’s Park Myung-hoon as Cho Young-min, Lost’s Yunjin Kim as Seon Woo-jin and Burning’s Jeon Jong-seo as Tokyo.

The synopsis reads: “Reborn in Korea, the new series is set in a fictional Joint Economic Area, in a world where the Korean Peninsula faces reunification.”

Other characters include the Professor (Yoo Ji-tae), Moscow (Lee Won-jong), Denver (Kim Ji-hun), Nairobi (Jang Yoon-ju), Rio (Lee Hyun-woo), Helsinki (Kim Ji-hoon) and Oslo (Lee Kyu-ho).

The original Money Heist wrapped up after five seasons last year, following a number of heists as told from the perspective of Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó).
