Korean creators have been developing their own audiovisual language and culture for years. Like our series, they have succeeded in going beyond cultural boundaries and becoming a benchmark for thousands of viewers around the world, especially among young people. That’s why I find it fascinating that the world of La casa de papel is so appealing to Korean designers as to make an adaptation of it.
