It’s true we’ve taken steps towards a remake of ‘Money Heist’ with Zium Content and Netflix. but we’ve only shared relevant content so far. Nothing has been decided yet.
We are not sure if they are going to copy the whole plot or change it a little bit. Here are the options that could be perfect for these roles in the Money Heist Korean Remake.
Yoo Ji Tae as Professor
The Professor is the main character and the mastermind behind all the heists in the show. His real name in the show is Sergio Marquina, he fooled the government and the police behind the scenes without physically joining the heist.
The Professor seems to have exceptional knowledge. Yoo Ji-Tae is best suited for this role, he is a South Korean actor and a film director. He also got the best actor award in 11th Cable TV Broadcasting Awards back in 2017.
Jun Ji Hyun as Lisbon
Raquel Murillo, also known as Lisbon, was a Spanish police inspector. Later she became a part of Professor’s crew. She was the leading police officer during the Royal Mint of Spain heist. She fell in love with the Professor and then joins him, and helps him in his second heist.
Jun Ji-Hyun is a 38 years old South Korean actor, famous for her role in the Assassin which was released back in 2015. Her English name is Gianna Jun. She also got the best actress award for her role in the Assassin back in 2016. She is well suited for the role of Lisbon a.k.a Raquel Murillo.
Bae Suzy as Tokyo
Silene Oliveira, code name Tokyo, played a major role in both heists in the Netflix Spanish Series Money Heist. However, Tokyo is impulsive and immature. After the successful first heist, Tokyo spent two years with her boyfriend Rio, who then got caught, and the second heist was brought to motion because of Rio.
Bae Suzy, 25 years old south Korean actor is a famous actor who appeared in many well known K-dramas. Also, Bae Suzy looks a lot like Úrsula Corberó who originally played the Tokyo role in the famous Netflix series.
Moon Chae-won as Nairobi
Ágata Jiménez, code name Nairobi, was the leading member of the heist. She also took charge multiple times when there was a conflict going on between the crew. After the first heist, she went to Argentina with Helsinki. However, when Rio got caught and the Professor summoned them all she decided to join them in the second heist. Things didn’t turn out the way they were expecting, Nairobi got shot during the heist but she survived. Later, Nairobi was eliminated by the Body Guard of the Bank of Spain in the latest season of Money Heist.
Moon Chae-won, a 33 years old South Korean actor, famous for her roles in many commercial hits. She won the Best New Actress at the Grand Bell Awards and won many Excellence awards for her acting. She is best suited to play the role of Nairobi.
