Actor Park Hae-joon has officially withdrawn from the Netflix Korean remake "Money Heist" based on the Spanish drama of the same title. Park Hae-joon had been set to play the role of Berlin. However, scheduling conflicts had rendered his participation impractical. It is not clear what other commitments Park Hae-joon has that made "Money Heist" impractical as the drama does not begin filming until May and he has no other confirmed screen projects.
AdvertisementThe role of Berlin will now be played by Park Hae-soo, who does not have any scheduling issues. The Spanish version of "Money Heist" is currently filming its fifth season. The popular drama deals with a large team of eight criminal specialists making long-term, high value heists. It is unknown what changes will be made in the Korean version. So far only four leads have been confirmed. A script is expected from Ryoo Yong-jae of "My Holo Love" and his associated team.
Yoo Ji-tae will play The Professor, Kim Yunjin will play Raquel, and Jun Jong-seo will play Tokyo. These names come from the original Spanish series and may be changed. "Money Heist" will be directed by Kim Hong-seon-I who is currently filming "L.U.C.A. : The Beginning" on tvN. The mystery thriller had ratings of 5.3 and 5.8% in its first week. It is unknown when "Money Heist" will make its worldwide debut on Netflix, although it has been confirmed for twelve episodes.
