Confirming the news back in June, the production is a collaboration between BH Entertainment and Contents Zium. The Korean adaptation, which will have 12 episodes will be helmed by Kim Hong Sun, famous for being “a giant in the fantasy crime genre.” His other dramas include Voice, The Guest, and Black.

Meanwhile, Ryu Young Jae and his team will be penning the script for the show. His previous works include Netflix’s My Holo Love and the tvN drama Psychopath Diary.

Money Heist creator Alex Pina said that he “finds it fascinating that the world of La casa de papel is so attractive to Korean creators as to do an adaptation.” He also said that he’s delighted to see the action of the story happen on the Korean Peninsula.

Set in Madrid, the show follows a man known only as “The Professor” who recruits 8 people – all with cities for code names – to carry out the mission of entering the Royal Mint of Spain and escape with 2.4 billion Euros. The upcoming Korean remake will breathe new life into the storyline that Netflix’s global audience is already familiar with.
