According to Netflix Tudum, the next part of the Korean remake of the beloved Spanish series La Casa de Papel sees North and South Korea on the verge of peaceful unification – with preparations to print a new unified currency.

Money Heist: Korea Joint Economic Area Part 1: What happened in the final episode?

The sixth episode, simply titled as, “Episode 6,” is directed by Kim Hong-sun and written by Ryu Yong-jae, Kim Hwan-chae, and Choe Sung-jun. In the episode, the viewers got to see that, Police believe Chul-woo was killed after hearing a gunshot through a wiretap (it is revealed that Berlin showed up and shot him down before he could kill Tokyo). As public opinion appears to be what the heist team values most, Woo-jin comes up with a strategy to use media attention to turn the public against them.

To reassure the hostages’ families, they haggle for Woo-jin to enter carrying a camera and broadcast every face of the still-alive hostages. Berlin gathers the hostages and lets Woo-jin in to make sure they are safe before revealing his true identity as Song Jung-ho. Using the false identity of a recently hired security guard, Woo-jin informs the public that the “hostage,” Chul-woo, is missing and presumed dead, which Anne and Young-min both confirm. She takes the opportunity to demand the release of the students on the grounds that the heist team broke their promise not to harm the hostages, which incites the audience’s anger at the heist team.

Berlin, however, reveals that Chul-woo was still alive because, at the time of the shooting, he was sporting a vest. The professor sent press reports with CCTV footage of Chul-woo’s actions after overhearing the police and their strategy. Berlin accuses the police of only wanting to save Anne (because of her father’s political background) and not the other hostages, and of using Chul-woo to put their safety in danger. Woo-jin leaves the Mint in defeat after Berlin claims that this shows the heist team only wanted money and never intended to harm the hostages.

This further fuels the public’s rage against the police and the government. Denver has sex with Mi-seon after essentially bidding her farewell earlier in the mission as the heist team gets closer to finishing their job. A distressed Woo-jin goes on a date with the Professor, who discovers his love for Woo-jin, while Moo-hyuk resigns on the outside. When Woo-jin discovers a covert message left by Anne, this date is abruptly ended. As the Professor returns to his café, he comes face-to-face with Moo-hyuk, who earlier suspected him.
