With five seasons, the Spanish production La Casa de Papel has been a success since the time it premiered, back in 2017. With a huge amount of fans around the world, the Netflix announced in 2020 that it would release the Korean version of the series. Two years later, the company finally released the first teaser of “La Casa de Papel: Korea – Joint Economy Area”.
Written by Ryoo Yong-Jae, one of the screenwriters of the movie Zombie Invasion 2: Peninsula, the series is based on the same story as the Spanish production, which was scripted by Álex Pina. The new version of the plot will also bring the characters Professor, Berlin, Rio and other darlings of the public.
According to Netflix, the new series set in the Asian country will arrive in 2022 in the catalog, but the specific date has not been confirmed. Check out the teaser below published on the official profile of Netflix Brasil.
In addition to the video, the cast of the series was also revealed, with some well-known names to the public. Oldboy (2003) villain Yoo Ji-tae will play the strategist Teacher. Meanwhile, actress Kim Yunjin (from the series Lost) will play the inspector Woojin, who will have the same role as Raquel (or Lisbon). Actor Park Hae-soo, featured in the South Korean series Round 6, will do the iconic Berlin.
The cast also includes Jun Jong-seo (Burning) as Tokyo, Lee Won-jong (Hand: The Guest) as Moscow, Kim Ji-hun (The Flower of Evil) as Denver, Jang Yoon-ju (Three Sisters) as Nairobi, Lee Hyun-woo (To the Beautiful You) as Rio, Kim Ji-hoon (Voice) as Helsinki, and Lee Kyu-ho (#Alive) as Oslo.
