Hello, La Casa De Papel fans! News about a possible Korean adaptation from BH Entertainment and ZIUM Content broke out in June 2020, and we're sure you've been *hungry* for updates ever since! The website MyDramaList even says it will be released in 2021. Here's what we know about the Korean Money Heist series, so far:

    Will the plot be the same as La Casa De Papel?

    The Spanish crime drama tells the story of a group of thieves who undertake a heist on the Royal Mint of Spain. They're led by a criminal mastermind who calls himself "The Professor." We're expecting the Korean adaptation to be set in a city like Seoul!

    Who will be in the cast (so far)?

    Nothing's *set in stone* yet, but this is the rumored cast of the adaptation:

    Yoo Ji Tae as The Professor

    News of his casting first circulated in August 2020. Yoo Ji Tae, who is signed under BH Entertainment, is known for his roles in When My Love Blooms (2020), The Good Wife (2016), and Healer (2014). He will reportedly take on the role of the protagonist Sergio Marquina aka The Professor (Álvaro Morte).
