Park Hae-soo, one of the stars of Squid Game, will also be at the center of the Korean adaptation of La Casa de Papel. Two days before the final of the Spanish hit, he has a message for the fans.
Park Hae-soo, now known in France for being the “bad guy” of Squid Game, will be one of the stars of the Korean adaptation of La Casa de Papel, as we announced in early October.
He will play the facetious and complex Andrés de Fonollosa – codenamed Berlin – one of the main characters in this thriller. The announcement made today by Netflix, on the spin-off dedicated to Berlin, takes on a particular flavor for the Korean actor:
“Over the past five years, fans around the world have shown their love for the series. Hope our Korean version will also receive your love and supportthe actor said in a video posted to the official La Casa de Papel YouTube account.
Dressed in a costume, like Berlin, and holding one of Dali’s iconic masks, he continues:
It’s an honor for me to take part in such a great series and especially to play Berlin, an incredible character. I’m sure the rest of the Korean version cast feels the same as I do.
“As an actor and as a fan of the series, I want to thank the actors and the team of La Casa de Papel for the great series they have created. We look forward to sharing the Korean version of La Casa de Papel with you in 2022“he concludes.
He has some took the opportunity to thank Pedro Alonso for giving him the famous Dali mask and in return promised to give him the one they will use in the Korean version next year.
Park Hae-soo makes no mention of a possible adaptation of the Berlin-centric spin-off, but the question legitimately arises. It’s a safe bet it will happen if the Korean adaptation of La Casa de Papel works as well as the original series.
As a reminder, before the launch of Squid Game, La Casa de Papel was the most watched non-English series on Netflix, seen by 180 million households around the world.
