Money Heist Korea 2022: Review, Release Date & Time, Trailer, All Episodes, Where To Watch
Netflix’s latest release, Money Heist: Korea – United Economic Zone, is a remake of the beloved 2017 original series. As the title suggests, the title takes place in Korea, which means there are all new bets, all new strategies, and of course, all new people.
And the cast and characters aren’t even the best part of this series, as the plot is a force that you must totally believe in as well.
A mysterious man, known as “The Professor”, teams up with a band of misfits to pull off the biggest heist of all time. The heist involved a group that stole four trillion won in the United Economic Zone of Korea and kept its identity and life intact. Naturally, this great achievement requires a great deal of sacrifice, attention to detail, and teamwork.
Release Date & Time:
It is released on June 24, 2022.
You can expect the entire 12-episode first season to make its way to Netflix on Friday, June 24, 2022, at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
If you live on the East Coast, you’re looking at a release time of 3:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Of course, we can’t forget about the people living in the Midwest. If you live in the Midwest, you’re looking at a release time of 2:00 a.m. Central Time.
If you thought the heist was over last year, well, it’s just gone global! The official trailer of Money Heist Korea – Joint Economic Area is here, and deeply rooted in the socio-political setup of the region. It is the Korean adaptation of the Netflix series.
We know the core story has lifted its theme from the Spanish original, revolving around the lives and crimes committed by a group of law breakers who are hired by a mastermind to rob a government treasury to balance the rich-poor divide in the society.
But, the Korean version has a couple of new plot points that make it different.
“Money Heist Korea” launched with just six episodes and, as a result, gets to the characters’ backstories much more quickly.
And unlike in the original “Money Heist,” where the Professor purposely bumps into Raquel (Itziar Ituño) in the third episode, the Professor and Seon Woojin know each other from the beginning.
Why does IMDb list only 9 episodes in Season 1, while Netflix clearly lists 13 for Part 1? Netflix acquired the exclusive global streaming rights for the series in December 2017 and re-cut the series into 22 episodes of around 50 minutes length.
Where To Watch:
The first six episodes are coming to you this week. Money Heist: Korea, the Korean remake of La Casa de Papel, will premiere on Netflix this Friday, June 24.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area takes the formula of Netflix’s massive hit Money Heist and transfers it from Spain to the Korean Peninsula.
It’s 2025; North and South Korea are taking tentative steps to reunify, starting with a city both will run, called the Joint Economic Area (JEA). One of the key places is the Mint, where the JEA’s currency is printed and stored. That will be the target of a new Professor and his city-named gang of thieves.
