We recently dropped our top picks of upcoming movies and shows to see catch this June, and Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area was part of that highly-anticipated list.
Now that it’s made its way to Netflix, we can all get hyped–as we should.
Just like its western counterpart, La Casa De Papel, this crime drama series has 12 episodes (6 episodes each for Part 1 & Part 2) of mystery, intrigue, and of course, action. Kim Hong-Sun (Voice, Black) takes the lead as director with Yoo Ji-Tae (Old Boy, Healer), Kim Yunjin (Shiri, Lost), Park Hae-Soo (Squid Game, Prison Playbook), and Jeon Jong-Seo (Call, Burning) in starring roles.
Here’s a quick gist of what to expect:
North and South Korea are on the verge of peaceful reunification, and make preparations to print a new unified currency. A genius strategist: the Professor, assembles a gang of top-class thieves from the North and South, to steal the new cash straight from the mint, attempting to pull off an unprecedented heist in the Korean Peninsula.
The show also stars Lee Won-jong, Park Myung-hoon, Kim Sung-o, Kim Ji-hun, Jang Yoon-ju, Lee Joobeen, Lee Hyun-woo, Kim Ji-hoon, and Lee Kyu-ho. BH Entertainment and Zium Content produced the series, while it was distributed by Netflix.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area is available for streaming on Netflix.
