Money Heist Korea: Everything you need to know about the remake of "The casa de papel"

The Korean remake of the hit Spanish series “La casa de papel” has arrived in the Netflix catalog. Here’s what you need to know about “Money Heist: Korea”.

Money Heist: Koreaa plot point

Let’s start with the differences between Money Heist: Korea and The casa de papel. Obviously, the plot of the series revolves around a new culture,a different system. However, the Korea depicted by the program does not really reflect reality. In the near future, the North has finally yielded to the sirens of capitalism and reunited with the South. A drastic turn that considerably enriched the already wealthy classes.

The plot of the series is thus articulated around a hostage-taking in the mint of a “unified Korea”. The intruders offer a deal to the police: they demand four trillion won (a little less than 3 billion euros). The police will do everything to stop them while there is still time. They will pay particular attention at the heart of the operation, Professor. All in all, an almost similar pitch to the original!

If the story unfolds in an alternative Koreait is clear that the border between the North and the South is still at the center of the concerns of Money Heist: Korea. On the side of the forces of order, we learn that during a hostage-taking in such a place, the usual process is to send an intervention unit from each Korea. Thus, the policewoman who will talk – and more if affinities – with The Professor comes from the South. Conversely, the former special forces who is leading the offensive is North Korean. In addition, in the house of currency, the robbers will separate the hostages according to their origin. Each group, if they break the rules, will cause the other to risk serious consequences
