The paper house: Korea is preparing to debut tomorrow on Netflix, and here comes an interesting behind the scenes of this series remake of the Spanish cult.
The paper house: Korea
The Netflix series is set in a Korea whose division, at least economic, seems destined to disappear, with disturbing consequences. As Netflix explains:
… With the new economic union only the rich have become richer. In this new and ruthless world founded on inequality, a gang of thieves from North and South Korea enter the scene, led by the Professor, who set out to strike a historic coup.
In this new version of the story, a Joint Security Area located on today’s border between North and South Korea hosts the hub of the action. During the reunification, the mint coined a new currency to lay the foundations for a stable joint economy.
The stakes of the robbery: 4,000 billion won (about 3 billion euros).
