Money Heist’ was one of the most popular series on Netflix and became a cultural phenomenon. That’s why South Korea decided to adapt the series and tell the story of the biggest heist in the world. Titled, ‘Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area’, the story revolves around a group of robbers who plan to pull up a heist at the Korean Mint situated in the Joint Economic Area. North and South Korea will be unified, giving people a chance to have more opportunities. However, only the rich got richer and that’s why the team decided to execute this plan.

As soon as the series surfaced online, critics, as well as audiences, started praising the K-drama for its unique storytelling that featured Korea’s local flavor.

Even in Part One of the Netflix show, Berlin (Park Hae-soo) also divided the North and South Koreans and threatened them by saying that if one side makes mistake, the other side will get the punishment.
