Earlier this year, there was exciting news that the popular Antena3/Netflix drama ‘Money Heist (La Casa de Papel)‘ would be remade into a Korean version. In addition to the news, the cast members of the series were revealed.
Then on December 1, ‘Money Heist’ released a surprise teaser clip of actor Park Hae Soo, who is receiving a lot of attention and popularity for his role in the Netflix megahit series ‘Squid Game.’
The video was posted with the caption, “From Seoul to all the Resistance, Park Hae-soo has a message: the Korean version of #MoneyHeist will arrive this 2022, only on Netflix.” In the video, the actor appears with his back to the camera as he slowly turns around, holding the signature money heist mask.
Then the actor went on to deliver the message, “Greetings, Netflix fans all across the world. I am Park Hae Soo, who played the role of Berlin in the Korean version of ‘Money Heist.’ Thank you, Pedro Alonso, who sent me this signature ‘Money Heist’ mask. Even in the Korean version of ‘Money Heist,’ we wear a mask that is as special as this one. Next year, when that mask is revealed, I will also send one as a gift to Pedro.
