North Korean and South Korean robbers
The storyline of the series will take place in a political situation different from reality. Indeed, La Casa de Papel: Korea will take place while the South Korea and North Korea are on the verge of reaching an agreement for reunification. After 80 years of conflict and tension, a peaceful unification is finally envisioned, and it will pass through many changes. Among them, the decision to introduce a new single currency. A man nicknamed the Professor will make the decision to rob the Mint Bureau, in other words the Mint Factory of this new unified Korea. To do this, it collects experienced thieves from South Korea and North Korea. Thus, the scenario will be largely taken from Casa de Papel, but it will differ on certain points, starting with this very different geopolitical context.
La Casa de Papel will be launched in France on Netflix from June 24. The series will air in two parts of six episodes each.
