“How Paella and Fried Rice are Both Famous Rice Dishes…” – Money Heist: Korea-Joint Economic Area Writer Promises a “Refreshing” Series

#Paella #Fried #Rice #Famous #Rice #Dishes #Money #Heist #KoreaJoint #Economic #Area #Writer #Promises #Refreshing #Series

La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) ended just six months ago. With El Professor and his gang so fresh in everyone’s minds, the prospect of another Money Heist (Money Heist: Korea- Joint Economic Area) may have had audiences feel as though Netflix was rushing things. This thought may have gained traction after a glimpse of the trailer featuring the bank, the robbers, the masks, and the red jumpsuits. 

The character code names also remained, as city names could stay common across geographical borders. However, fans can heave a sigh of relief after a Money Heist: Korea- Joint Economic Area writer promised that the Netflix offering would have its own identity despite being a remake.

Money Heist: Korea- Joint Economic Area will be refreshing for all audiences 

In the official Money Heist: Korea- Joint Economic Area press conference, writer Ryu Yong-jae used an example of two renowned rice dishes. 

He said, “Similar to how paella and fried rice are both famous rice dishes, the series may look similar with their charming characters and the heist plan. But we have added some Korean flavors, making the series refreshing for Korean and foreign viewers — including an imaginary area named the ‘Joint Economic Area’ created by North and South Korea, who are close to unifying.”

The promise of a fresh blend and knowledge of Korean content exceeding expectations is something that could provoke many to stream this series on June 24.

Does anyone remember that the only international film to claim the Oscar for Best Picture (Parasite) is a Korean offering? Additionally, fans need only look at Netflix shows like Squid Game, All of Us Are Dead, Business Proposal, and Alchemy of Souls to understand the quality of content emerging from the peninsula.

The spins and twists will emerge in a few hours, but one change has been quite noticeable in this Netflix Original.

Money Heist: Korea will see the robbers in Hahoetal masks

The idea of the robbers wearing masks remains the same in Money Heist: Korea. However, unlike their Spanish counterparts who had Dali masks, the Korean gang will wear traditional Hahoetal masks. These masks originated from the Hahoe Village in Adang, Korea. 

Money Heist: Korea- Joint Economic Area‘s Berlin (Park Hae-soo) elaborated on the difference between the Hahoetal and Dali masks. He said, “Unlike the Dali mask, which symbolizes freedom, the hahoe mask was originally used to mock upper-class social elites. I believe this goes well with our storyline. The hahoe mask alone creates a unique atmosphere that will mesmerize viewers.” (h/t The Korea Herald)

Based on the teaser trailer of this incoming Netflix series, the masks fit in well with the storyline of the rich getting richer. They also look a tad scary in some way and represent the promised Korean flavor.

Will there be some more surprises that emerge? How excited are you? Money Heist: Korea- Joint Economic Area will stream from June 24.

Mike Wheeler, portrayed by Finn Wolfhard, has been the male protagonist of Stranger Things since season 1 when all the kids used to play D&D in his basement. He has criticized fans several times for the bad choices he made. Even though he is just a teenager who wants to hold things. Whereas Mike was the first person to embrace Eleven for what she was, welcomed her into his home, and kept her safe in his little game place.

As the time passed, he became more and more infatuated with Eleven that he overlooked some things. But his love for Eleven doesn’t make him completely a bad person. Currently, Mike fans are defending him for season 3 where people are calling the piggyback scene overdramatic.

Ethan Hawke Reveals How Stranger Things Saved Him From Coming Across as a “crazy, nepotistic dad”

#Ethan #Hawke #Reveals #Stranger #Saved #Coming #crazy #nepotistic #dad

Maya Hawke has been simply amazing as Robin Buckley. There is no actress who could’ve played the role of Robin as well as she did. However, even though Stranger Things is Maya’s most notable work to date, she has also appeared in numerous projects. In fact, Maya made an appearance on The Good Lord Bird in 2020, besides her father, Ethan.

While promoting the show about legendary abolitionist John Brown, Ethan, who played Brown, credited Stranger Things for helping Maya get cast in the show.

Let us see what Ethan Hawke had to say.

Stranger Things helped Maya Hawke get other roles

Stranger Things certainly has helped its actors make great careers for themselves. Each actor from the show has gone on to star in multiple high-budgeted projects.

But apparently, it helped Ethan Hawke more than anyone else as he got a chance to work with his daughter thanks to the Netflix Original.

While appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers back in 2020, Ethan shared how he desperately wanted Maya to play John Brown’s daughter, Annie Brown.

But Ethan said he did not know how to bring the conversation up with his producers. Fortunately, the 51-year-old actor did not have to.

Ethan said that after watching Stranger Things, the producers themselves called Ethan to enquire to see if Maya would be interested in playing Annie and stopped him for being a “crazy, nepotistic dad.”

The Marvel actor then went on to say how fortunate he felt that he got to work with his daughter and also mentioned how artistic Maya is.

He even shared how he and Maya used to draw when she was young and how impressed Ethan was with her work. The father-daughter duo will also be seen together in the unreleased Beatles-inspired comedy, Revolver.

This year Netflix has had the most impressive lineup of new tv shows and movies in a long time. Just seven months into 2022, we have had huge shows like Stranger Things and Ozark, among many others. However, the streaming giant is just warming up. They have an equally impressive content lineup for the year’s second half, with the most anticipated being the Tekken: Bloodline series.

The animated series based on the legendary video game was announced earlier this year, with director Katsuhiro Harada set to direct it. In Netflix’s Geeked Week event, Harada shared an exclusive look at the series. And even answered a few questions.

One of his answers was hilarious but also gave us an insight into what to expect from the series. Let us see what he had to say.

Tekken: Bloodline Director Katsuhiro Harada wants to apologize to Jin

Netflix’s Geeked Week event was a huge treat, especially for anime fans. During the event, Netflix picked the curtains off many projects it had in development, like the One Piece live-action adaptation, the new Cyberpunk series, and even the Castlevania: Nocturne series.

The event also gave us a huge update for the highly awaited Tekken animated series. During the event, Director Katsuhiro Harada talked about the new series and how fans of the video games will find new things in the series.

During the discussion, Harada was asked what he would say to his main lead from the series Jin. While Katsuhiro replied jokingly, “I’m sorry for always putting you through so many awful things,” it gave us an idea of what to expect.

By Harada’s answer, one can determine the level of struggles Jin will go through in the series. And also, all the lovers of the video game know that Jin has had a troubled past, with him going through many obstacles in his life.
