Money Heist: Korea is coming with its title finally revealed!


Our favorite Spanish thieves may have bid farewell, but their legacy lives on, as we’ll soon meet their Korean counterparts!

The countdown to Netflix’s Korean adaptation of its popular series, Money Heist finally begins as they announce its official title.

Called ‘Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area’, it follows a brilliant strategist and his gifted squad — made up of top-notch robbers – as they plan an unparalleled heist on the Korean Peninsula.

The show’s move from a Spanish to a Korean setting is both intriguing and exciting, adding fresh twists to a beloved storyline.

From Madrid to Seoul

First reported around June of last year, the Korean remake is a joint project of BH entertainment and Zium Content.

With the beginning of a new juggernaut, along with the title’s announcement is the release of a special teaser. Providing us a first-hand view of the set and visuals, the teaser eventually reveals the Korean crew’s symbolic heist mask.
