“Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area ss 2”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the exciting TV show “Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area” has not been officially announced, but it is quite expected. Since the original, Spanish “La casa de papel / Money Heist” is taken as the basis of the Korean film, we can safely assume that we will see more than one season.
Note that the season 1 of “Money Heist: Korea” was divided into 2 parts of 6 episodes. Moreover, work on the second part of the season 1 is still underway. Therefore, if we talk about the season 2, then its premiere is unlikely to take place before 2024.
The story begins with a story about the life of a young girl who served in the troops of North Korea. After the end of the war, she went south, where she dreamed of discovering a new world. But the situation in the country became even sadder and the apartment promised by the broker turned out to be a real slum. Trying to earn her own bread, she finds herself in an unpleasant situation.
The girl meets a man named Professor. He invites her to participate in an extremely dangerous adventure. But our heroine has no other option, so she agrees. Soon the girl is introduced to accomplices. One of them turns out to be a man named Rio. He resembles a Korean youth idol and skillfully uses his beauty. Rio is not his real name.
The names of the rest of the team members are also associated with the capitals. Berlin becomes another participant – HE is strict, serious and inspires persistent horror on others. Being a skilled manipulator, the guy easily achieves his goals, while he has great physical endurance. Oslo and Helsinki used to work in a big gang. There are still rumors that they slaughtered its members until there were only two left.
Nairobi is a real outrageous queen. Being a master of disguise, she will be able to infiltrate any environment. The girl is able to change not only appearance, but also habits. The girl, who was discussed at the very beginning, took the pseudonym Tokyo. Any man can envy her fighting skills. That’s why she got on this team.
After bringing them together, the Professor sets a goal: to rob the Mint, which currently has more than 4 billion won, in a short time. Realizing that the team will have enough of this amount for a comfortable old age, he develops an expensive plan. But no one knows yet that a robbery attempt is doomed to failure in advance …
At a crucial moment, the hostages will not behave as planned, and the robbers will have to act according to the situation. The siege of the Mint, misunderstandings in the team, random murders – all this was in the 1st season, and in the new episodes the audience will have another story from which our heroes will have to extricate themselves, overcoming fear and horror.
