Teaser: Netflix Announces Premiere Date For ‘Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area’

Barely a year after Money Heist ended its five-season run, Netflix has resurrected the franchise.

Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area is a South Korean iteration of the Spanish heist crime drama series. Why Netflix would think a copycat series so close to its predecessor is a good idea is still amiss to the public, but on the part of the streaming service, marketing publicity is in already in gear.

The series’ synopsis reads:

“Money Heist: Korea takes place as North and South Korea are on the verge of a peaceful reunification after nearly 80 years of division. But as the nations prepare to print a brand-new unified currency, a heist is hatched. A genius strategist known as The Professor assembles a motley crew of top-tier thieves from north and south in an attempt to steal the new currency straight from the mint.”

Does this sound like fun, or is it too similar for you to like? Tell us in the comments.

Netflix’s newly launched teaser features the characters in the familiar red overalls but replaces the famous Salvador Dalí masks with traditional Korean Hahoe-inspired masks.

The Korean series is directed by Kim Hong-sun and written by Ryu Yong-jae. It stars Squid Game’s Park Hae-so (Berlin), Yoo Ji-tae (Professor), Jun Jong-seo (Tokyo), Lee Won-jong (Moscow), Kim Ji-hun (Denver), Jang Yoon-ju (Nairobi), Lee Hyun-woo (Rio), Kim Ji-hoon (Helsinki) and Lee Kyu-ho as Oslo, among others.

Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area premieres on Netflix this June 24.
