Netflix just dropped a teaser for Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area, a remake of massively popular Spanish heist series Money Heist (or La Casa de Papel), which wrapped up its third and final season last year on the streamer.
The teaser begins by introducing the mastermind, who is governing his plan from a dingy room. Laptops and other devices are spread across the table while Yoo Ji-Tae’s back faces the camera. He then turns at the wall featuring several masks. While the iconic Dali mask is seen, the Korean adaptation has included a few other masks as well. The teaser also looks at Park Hae-soo as Berlin, Jun Jong-Seo as Tokyo, Lee Won-jong as Moscow, Kim Ji-hun as Denver, Jang Yoon-Ju as Nairobi, Lee Hyun-woo as Rio, Kim Ji-hoon as Helsinki, and Lee Kyu-ho as Oslo. The series is directed by Kim Hong-sun.

It doesn’t hurt that the Korean entertainment industry is, well, good. They have proven themselves adept at making quality programming quickly and to a certain standard. If Netflix was looking for a region for its first Money Heist remake (because who’s to say there won’t be more), Korea is a smart choice.
