Yoo Ji-Professor tae’s from Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area has been given a closer look, and he looks nothing like Alvaro Morte. The Healer star was wearing a similar pair of glasses in the photo, but unlike Alvaro’s Professor from the original Money Heist, who had stubble, Yoo Ji-tae was clean-shaven.
Yoo Ji-tae was seated on the desk, with various types of plans arranged around him. The actor appeared to be lost in thought. Netflix Korea distributed the poster in both Korean and English.
Yoo Ji-first tae’s appearance as the Professor was revealed in a teaser released earlier this year. The teaser showed the mastermind running his plan from a seedy room. Laptops and other electronic devices are scattered across the table. A number of masks appeared as he turned towards the wall next to his workstation.
While the iconic Dali mask appears, the Korean adaptation also includes a few other masks. The teaser also introduced Kim Yun-jin as Woo Jin, an investigating officer who is attempting to put a stop to what appears to be the Professor’s heist plan. She appears to be stepping into Raquel Murillo’s shoes.
Park Hae-soo as Berlin, Jun Jong-seo as Tokyo, Lee Won-jong as Moscow, Kim Ji-hun as Denver, Jang Yoon-ju as Nairobi, Lee Hyun-woo as Rio, Kim Ji-hoon as Helsinki, and Lee Kyu-ho as Oslo were also teased. Kim Hong-sun directs the series.
A teaser trailer was also released last month, revealing that Money Heist Korea will be released on June 24.
