It’s been more than a year since Netflix confirmed the Korean adaptation of Money Heist, a.k.a. the Spanish crime thriller that took the world by storm from 2017 to 2021. Today, we’re one step closer to the show’s release after the streamer dropped its first-ever teaser, which also revealed the Korean version’s official title: Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area.
The one minute clip features When My Love Blooms star Yoo Ji Tae as The Professor clad in a brown leather jacket. He’s standing alone suspiciously in a dark room while inspecting a wall lined with various masks, from traditional Korean pieces to the iconic Salvador Dali mask seen in the Spanish original. As he reaches out for one of them, the screen fades to black and transitions to another scene in what seems to be a control room.
The teaser ends with first-look posters of each of the main characters in the series. Joining Yoo Ji Tae are Squid Game star Park Hae Soo as Berlin, Kim Yun Jin as Woo Jin, Jeon 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 story portrays unexpected twists and turns as the crew stage a hostage while facing inexplicable challenges.”
