Just when you thought the world’s biggest heist was over, think again. Say Annyeonghaseyo to Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area Part 1 when it premieres on 24 June with six action-packed episodes.
Directed by Kim Hong-sun, the series will be set against the backdrop of two Koreas creating a Joint Economic Area where North and South are on the verge of peaceful reunification.
