The Spanish TV series is probably one of the most popular shows on Netflix. It first aired in 2017 and is already in its fourth season. It tells the story of a group recruited by a mysterious person called "The Professor." He gathered eight people to do the impossible of infiltrating the Royal Mint of Spain. They took sixty-seven hostages and stayed for eleven days to print the money and ran off with €2.4 billion. Afterward, they plan to attack the Bank of Spain.

Because of the high-rating and the success of the series, they recently confirmed to produce season five. Though they are, in fact, criminals, viewers are hooked to the plot and captured humongous attention all over the world.

In Korea, "Money Heist" is very well accepted that the series released a Korean virtual cast and is often found in Korea's Top 10 content. 

The Korean production is on high hopes that the Korean audience will look forward to the remake and will be welcomed by original fans and other viewers. Particularly, they raise their expectation as to who will play "The Professor" and the other eight accomplices who will appear attractive even though they are criminals.

Top actors like Lee Byung Jun, Yoo Ji Tae, Gosu, Han Hyo Joo, Han Jimin, and Kim Go Eun are included in the BH Entertainment, who, by the way, manages these actors. But they are still expanding their production. BH Entertainment wishes that the remake will push through. Through this remake, it will expand the agency's territories.

People are more and more dependent on their mobile phones, and seldom watch TV, they would instead settle and lie down on a sofa or their bed to binge on their favorite TV shows and films. With Netflix offering monthly rates (a minimum of USD 3), audiences experience more convenience through their subscription to the platform.
