The popular Netflix series "Money Heist" is getting a Korean remake.
According to a report from K-pop news site Soompi, Kim Hong Sun, director of the hit Korean shows "The Guest," "Voice," and "Black," will helm the remake, while Ryu Yong Jae, one of the writers of the 2019 drama "Psychopath Diary," will write the script.
BH Entertainment, which produced “A Single Rider" and “Miss Baek," and Content ZIUM, behind the shows “Itaewon Class,” “Go Back Couple,” “More than Friends,” and “Run On,” will be co-producers.
Talks of a possible Korean remake of "Money Heist" have been reported since June.
The Spanish drama, which is now on its fourth season, tells the story of eight thieves who take hostages and lock themselves in the Royal Mint of Spain as a criminal mastermind manipulates the police to carry out his plan.
Álex Pina, the executive producer of “Money Heist,” said: “For several years, Korean content has crossed national boundaries and captivated audiences around the globe with its unrivaled composition and culture, just as ‘Money Heist’ has now. That is why we were attracted to the potential of a Korean version of ‘Money Heist.'"
"I am excited to see what will happen when this case unfolds against the backdrop of the Korean peninsula," he added.
As of writing, other details about the project, such as the casting, title, and filming schedule, have yet to be announced.
