Another catching attention for the series is its official trailer. “A crime to top all crimes“, the trailer suggests. Who is excited about this remake? (Because we are!) You may peek at Netflix the official trailer here.

The Plot

From what we get from the teasers and trailers, Money Heist Korea: Joint Economic Area sets in a future where North and South Korea are unified (which is why Joint Economic Area, or JEA, is in the title).

Moreover, JEA only benefitted the elite people, so a group of thieves plans a heist on the JEA central bank. Promptly they are about to steal a ₩4 trillion money!

According to Netflix’s plot summary, “thieves overtake the mint of a unified Korea, trapping hostages inside; the police must stop the thieves as well as the shadowy mastermind behind the heist”.
