The original story shows viewers a group of criminals who, led by a mysterious professor, rob a Spanish mint, taking away huge sums of money. The trick was that the plan did not involve a daring robbery, but unfolded over several days as the criminals and their leader carefully deceived the police. In the sequel, viewers saw that the escape from the mint was not the point of the story and the criminals were long pursued by police with Interpol around the world.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The Korean story, according to the creators, is an accurate retelling, but with an important change: the characters in the new show are completely different characters, which means they will act differently from those shown in the Spanish version. All this raised the degree of expectation and allowed us to talk about the second season. Its release date will be in 2023.
The Korean version of the show was directed by the popular director Kim Hong-Seong, and the script was adapted by Ryu Eun-Jae, whose most important work is the second part of Train to Busan. Renowned Korean actors such as Yoo Ji-Jae, Park Hae-su, Lee Gyuho, and others were cast in the roles. The first season was released on June 24, 2022, traditionally on the day of the show on the Netflix platform, all 12 episodes became available for viewing. The release date for season 2 of Money Heist Korea season 2 will be in 2023.
According to Netflix, the Korean remake is not just an attempt to make more money from a popular story. Recent years have been marked by viewers’ interest in Korean shows, and directors from that country have developed their own audiovisual style, different from any other movie.
Check out information about other TV show sequels like: Taboo season 2, Loki season 2, Outlander season 6, The Handmaid’s Tale season 5 and Squid Game season 2.
The creator of the original personally negotiated with Korean directors and gave the go-ahead to develop the remake. Interesting is the fact that the Money Heist was originally conceived as a project for one season, but as it developed there were ideas for the continuation, which resulted in the shooting of 5 seasons. The release date of season 2 of the Korean adaptation will be in 2023, at the same time viewers can watch a spin-off of the original show about the much-loved character nicknamed Berlin.
