The Money Heist: Korea series is set in a fictional Joint Economic Zone, in a futuristic world where the Korean Peninsula faces reunification. When the promise of a united Korea fails, a master strategist called The Professor (Yoo Ji-tae) assembles a team, each nicknamed after cities, to pull off the biggest heist at the Mint Bureau.

In an interview with India Today, Alvaro said, “I didn’t watch it [the show] Again. You know, I just saw the trailer. I think that’s very good. I mean, Koreans, they know how to do it. The Indians know how to make fiction and action. And I’m sure it’s going to be very good. I hope they are doing very well. I don’t know the cast; I do not know them.”



“I hope one day we can meet them and discuss, ‘Hey, how did you approach it? Professor, how did you build this? You know why I did it this way. I would like to know how did you do it?’ “I’m an actor. I like the professional character. And I love Money Heist, but being an actor, of course, part of my job is to switch characters to do different things,” he added.

Money Heist: Korea, directed by Kim Hong-sun, also features Park Hae-Soo, Jun Jong-seo, Lee Hyun-woo, Lee Won-jong, and Park Myung-hoon, among others. The series was written by Ryu Yong-jae, Kim Hwan-chae, and Choe Sung-jun. The original Spanish show began airing in 2017 and ran for 41 five-part episodes.
