He’s a Gen Z, he’s in his 20s. and realistic elements of those in her 20s show up in the show. She’s the purest, I’d say, and she’s so into the professor’s faith so she doesn’t
She gets distracted, she’s too stagnant, and she’s focused on just one goal. And she’s trying to get everyone to that goal, so she’s not a troublemaker,” she said.

it looks interesting! While there are bound to be comparisons with the original, we’re excited to see how Money Heist Korea stands out.
