Money Heist: Korea series is set in a fictional Joint Economic Area, in a futuristic world where the Korean Peninsula faces reunification. When the promise of a united Korea fails, a master strategist called The Professor (Yoo Ji-tae) assembles a team, each nicknamed after cities, to pull off the biggest heist at the Mint Bureau.

In an interview with India Today, Alvaro said, “I haven't watched it [the show] yet. You know, I just saw the trailer. I think it's very good. I mean, Korean people, they know how to do it. The Indian people know how to do fiction and action. And I'm pretty sure it's going to be very good. I hope they are doing great. I don't know the cast; I don't know them."

"Hopefully, one day we can meet them and discuss, ‘Hey, how did you approach? The professor, how do you build it out? You know why I did it this way. I would like to know how you have done it?’ I'm an actor. I love the professional character. And I love Money Heist, but being an actor, of course, part of my work is to change characters to perform different things,” he added.

Money Heist: Korea, directed by Kim Hong-sun, also features Park Hae-Soo, Jun Jong-seo, Lee Hyun-woo, Lee Won-jong, and Park Myung-hoon among others. The series has been written by Ryu Yong-jae, Kim Hwan-chae, and Choe Sung-jun. The original Spanish show began streaming in 2017 and spanned 41 episodes over five parts.
