Netflix is working on a Korean version of 'Money Heist' - Hollywood News
Álex Pina, the creator of fiction, is delighted that Korean filmmakers are interested in his universe.
The Paper House continues to expand its borders and will have its version in South Korea. Netflix is once again betting on one of its most international productions, this time to adapt the story to a new audience and, incidentally, take all the curious followers who want to see Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó) or The Professor (Álvaro Morte) in its Asian version.
Álex Pina has been enthusiastic about the news and will work as an executive producer on the project. The new fiction will be directed by Kim Hong-sun, also in charge of the series Boiseu and Son: The Guest, both with touches of action and mystery. Hong-sun is known within the fantasy genre and, specifically, the crime genre. Ryu Yong-Jae will be in charge of the script in what will be his second collaboration with the platform after My Holo Love.
"Korean creators have been developing their own audiovisual language and culture for years. They have managed, like our series, to go beyond cultural boundaries and become a point of reference for thousands of viewers around the world, especially among young people. That's why I find it fascinating that the world of Money Heist has attracted Koreans to make their adaptation. The fact that the action is set on the Korean peninsula is a milestone that I am delighted with, "he said. expressed the creator.
SEASON 5 OF 'Money Heist', IN DEVELOPMENT
Meanwhile, season 5 of Money Heist is still in development. The previous installment reached 65 million views in its first month on the platform, so the continuation was more than assured. In the new episodes, we will see new additions, such as José Manuel Seda (Toy Boy), Miguel Ángel Silvestre (Sense8), and Patrick Criado (Riot control).
The role they will play in fiction is not yet known, but there are many paths they can be a part of. Judging by some leaked images of the shoot, it is possible that they are part of the past of one of the protagonists. At least, last August we saw Silvestre and Úrsula Corberó shooting some scenes together.
