Earlier this year, a teaser video was released where the entire cast of the show was revealed. Yoo Ji-tae is playing The Professor, which was originally portrayed by Álvaro Morte in the Spanish series. Park Hae Soo, who attained worldwide fame after his role in Squid Game, is all set to play Berlin, made famous by Pedro Alonso. During an earlier interview with The Swoon, he described Pedro’s version as more “chic and cold-blooded”. Park shared that Berlin “has a good reason for being cold and swaying into being a villain.” He promised that “fans will get to see a more human version of Berlin.”
Money Heist creator Alex Pina had earlier told Variety, “Korean creators have been developing their own language and audiovisual culture for years. They have managed, like our series, to go beyond cultural borders and become a point of reference for thousands of viewers around the world, especially among young people.”
