This article, “Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area season 1 – when will part 2 be out on Netflix,” does not contain spoilers regarding part 1 of the Netflix K-Drama series. 

On June 24th, 2022, Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area season 1 arrived on Netflix. This is a well-anticipated release, with the K-Drama industry creating a South Korean remake of a viral Spanish series that took the world by storm.

If you are unfamiliar with the story, then here is a teaser of the premise:

The heist itself patterns itself on the original story with The Professor (played by Yoo Ji-tae) leading a group of society misfits to pull off the greatest bank robbery the world has ever seen. He wants to do it without casualties, and there’s a lust for winning over public opinion. The series does well to tap into the political dynamics. For example, there’s a  disillusionment with North Koreans embedded into a democratic system, watching others prosper while they suffer in a new financial hybrid. That’s a key reason why Tokyo (played by Jun Jong-seo), who in the past was enlisted in the North Korean army, decided on a life of bank robberies. She became resentful of capitalism.

At Ready Steady Cut, we gave part 1 of season 1 a favorable review: “the production is impressive, the script is punchy, and the characters do well to represent their original counterparts.”

As of yet, we have received no updates from Netflix on the release of part 2. However, we have been told it will be out “later this year.” Maybe this is a way of throwing us off their scent because later this year sounds like October-December, which is a long time to wait for the second part of a season. Either way, fans will likely stay invested and stay around for this Money Heist remake, mainly because of its excellent production and cast. If we are being duped, we expect part 2 to be released in a month or two to keep the hype sustained. In total, Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area season 1 has 12 episodes, so we are still waiting for another six (how exciting!).

At Ready Steady Cut, we’ll keep you updated on any news.

You can watch this series with a subscription to Netflix.
