La Casa de Papel became one of the most watched series worldwide thanks to its impeccable plot, which is why it will now have its Korean version.
While recording its fifth season which could be released this April, some South Korean producers are fine-tuning the recordings of the new version to adapt it to their language.
As announced by Netflix, this remake will be directed by Kim Hong-sun and will be made in collaboration with the firms BH Entertainment and Contents Zium.
“I find it fascinating that the world of La Casa de Papel is attractive to Korean creators to make an adaptation. They have been developing, in their language, their own audiovisual culture for years, applauded Pina in an interview with the EFE news agency.
For the Spanish, the Koreans “crossed cultural borders and became a point of reference for thousands of spectators around the world.”
