Okay, not to be confused with the Netflix K-drama adaptation of Money Heist, there is another upcoming streaming drama called Money Game that is in the works. It’s in the news today for a leading lady swap – IU has dropped out due to scheduling conflicts and will be replaced by Chun Woo Hee. The drama is adapted from the webtoon Money Game and Pi Game whereby a group of 8 people agree to live in a concrete condo live streamed on a reality show and will share a 44.8 billion eon prize if they can endure 100 days. All necessities can be purchased but for 1000 times the regular price in the real world and the amount will be deduced from the prize money. Sounds like Squid Game crossed with Big Brother with hopefully no murdering. The drama comes from the director of Emergency Declaration, The King, and The Face Reader.
Was wondering how she was going to go to Cannes, promote Broker, promote Dream, and prepare for a concert(?) at around the same time frame as filming. This is for the best. Best of luck to Money Game cast and crew. Premise sounds interesting, but it’ll be hard to avoid the Squid Game comparisons.
