Money Heist’s fifth season will conclude in 2021, leaving fans with a Salvador Dal mask-shaped hole in their hearts. As a result, fans will be pleased to learn that, thanks to Netflix’s announcement of a Korean adaptation of the Spanish crime thriller, they will soon be able to recapture the enchantment. Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area is the title of a forthcoming Netflix series that will broadcast in June 2022 around the world.
In the recent decade, the popularity of South Korean media, notably K-Dramas, has surged. Netflix has worked hard to acquire some of the best and most recent K-Dramas on the market, fast establishing itself as one of the best streaming providers for K-Drama-related material.
The inclusion of Money Heist’s Korean translation to Netflix’s repertoire only adds to its appeal. The show is produced by BH Entertainment and Content Zium.
The series will be directed by Kim Hong-sun, who has worked on K-Dramas such as Voice and The Guest. Ryu Yong-Jae, the screenwriter for the Netflix Original series My Holo Love, will write the screenplay for the next adaptation. On the project, Choe Sung-jun and Kim Hwan-Chae will collaborate.
What Can We Expect From Korea’s Joint Economic Area? With a few noteworthy exceptions, the plot will be largely similar to the Spanish version of the show.
Filming started on September 18th, 2021, and lasted for many months until January 18th, 2022. The end of filming was timed to coincide with the publication of the series’ teaser trailer. Seoul, South Korea, is the location for the entire shoot.
Now that the drama is in post-production, we should only be a few months away from completion.
Money Heist will include a total of 12 episodes in its initial season. Each episode will be 60 minutes in length.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area will premiere on Netflix worldwide on June 24th, 2022, according to a new trailer released on April 29th.
