What Happens In Part 2?

Captain Cha Moohyuk of the Joint Task Force was known for identifying double agents during the Cold War between North and South Korea. He had dedicated his life to protecting North Korea but soon realized his efforts were futile after the decision to declare the reunification of the Korean peninsula. Hence, his doubts about Park Sun-ho (the teacher) came from the moment he saw him, with years of experience. He went into the cafe and tried to find out what ParkSun-ho was hiding. He managed to take an item from his home and requested a fingerprint test. In Part 1, the teacher tapped Cha Moohyuk’s phone and after overhearing his conversation with the police realized he needed to mute it. He later drugged him. and held him captive. Meanwhile, Kim Sangman was keen to stop printing money as he was being threatened by his capitalist partner who had invested money to elect him president. The 4 trillion won was intended to feed the Capitalists and would undo all their efforts if the raid team got away with it.

He explained on TV that one of the thieves would be granted immunity from execution if he chose to cooperate with him. He urged them to take action if they sympathized with any of the family members who were with him. Relatives of the criminals tried to weaken them emotionally and give them a reason to act. His plan prompted one of the thieves to save Anne but also meant risking his life. Meanwhile, Inspector Woojin learned that the heist team was printing money at the Mint and the amount of money they printed would be considered legitimate since the 4 trillion won for Korean Peninsula unification had been sanctioned. Woojin asked Kim Sangman to cancel his surgery, but he refused. She was forced to inform the professor about the mole on her team and ask her to protect Anne. Although Anne originally planned to escape and made it to Vault, she decided to stay after realizing that her escape could cause even more trouble for the other hostages. The decision he made saved his life because a bomb was planted at the entrance of the vault. We later learned that Nairobi was the mole and she did it to protect her son after realizing it during Kim Sangman’s broadcast. Sangman kidnapped his son to put pressure on his team, but they found a way out and turned the boy over to Inspector Woojin.

Led by Park Chulwoo, the hostages devised a plan to fight the heist team together. They attacked Oslo, and while Park Chulwoo fought Helsinki, the remaining hostages ran to the basement to escape. He managed to inform Woojin by threatening Rio that the hostages were trying to escape and that they needed the task force’s help to get out of the mint. When the task force attempted to enter the basement, the raid team fought back and forced them out of the basement. With the robbery. The team promised to fight the task force, and the hostages ran from the basement to the roof and jumped off the inflatable boat the task force had set up. Half of the hostages escaped and the heist team disbanded. obsessed with finding the traitor among them. He hatched a plan with Tokyo to find the mole. Nairobi shot clean and the rest of the team sympathized. Berlin pushed Tokyo out of the mint to contact the professor and save Nairobi’s son. Meanwhile, he asked the task force to bring in former  Gaecheon 14 detention center director Jeon Yongsu. Why was Berlin interested in meeting Jeon Yongsu? Was he seeking personal revenge? And how will the professor lead his team now that the pieces are falling apart?

Why Did Berlin Expose Jeon Yongsu? How Was The Professor Related To Berlin?

From the first part, we know that Berlin endured endless torture in a concentration camp at a young age. His parents tried to flee North Korea but were found. His mother was shot and he was taken away. to the concentration camp, where Jeon Yongsu behaved inhumanely, including toward the young inmates. Berlin wanted to use this opportunity to expose Yongsu and win public sympathy. When Jeon Yongsu arrived at the mint with the anti-terrorist team, he planned to embarrass Berlin also. In response to Berlin’s allegations, he claimed that Berlin wanted revenge by sleeping with his stepdaughter. The public was shocked by the revelation, but soon a member of the Berlin gang appeared on the live broadcast and claimed she was the one his stepdaughter Jeon Yongsu was talking about. She clarified that Berlin never raped her; her stepfather, Jeon Yongsu, raped her when she was a child. Berlin saved them from torture in the concentration camp.

The public not only learned that Jeon Yongsu was a terrible man but also realized that Kim Sangman was just as cunning. He had kidnapped the son of one of the members of the heist to make a deal. Berlin and the professor had planned this trick for a long time. Their purpose was to win the audience’s sympathy and make them believe that what they were doing was more than just a heist; It was a political revolution to overthrow the rulers and liberate the common people who were always disadvantaged. They realized that a united Korea could never succeed if the leaders remained corrupt. The unification was just a front to attract larger investments from which only the capitalists would benefit. Gradually we learned that the professor and Berlin were brothers. When his parents tried to flee North Korea, Berlin, and his mother failed to cross the river, while the professor and his father made it to South Korea.

The professor later contacted Berlin and spoke to him about how his father died trying to rob banks to free Berlin from the camp. The professor had grown up watching his father struggle to raise money for his son’s release. As a child, he wondered why the government wasn’t printing enough money to meet the needs of the poor. His dream was to give money to those who needed it, and even as he grew up he wanted to give away a fraction of the money printed to the common people. He contacted Berlin to carry out a plan his father had dreamed up but was unable to carry out. It can be assumed that the plan the professor discussed was the Mint plan. The two brothers came together to pursue their father’s dream. It was always more than just getting rich; It was about bringing down those who abused their power.

How Did The Heist Team Escape From The Mint?

The hostages had a choice: they could either leave the mint or earn 3 million won each by helping them. Surprisingly, many chose to stay behind, hoping to earn money before leaving. of hostages in accomplices. Meanwhile, Woojin passes out in front of the professor’s cafe. He took her to a hospital and she later visited him to thank him. She informed him that he had gotten off the case and during the conversation the professor mentioned that his father suffered from dementia, as did his mother. While Woojin didn’t think much of the conversation, he later found that it was odd how informed Park Sun-ho was about his mother’s condition. When he asked his mother, all he could remember was seeing Park Sun-ho through the window in front of his house. Later, after studying  Park Sun-ho’s fingerprint, he discovered that had defected from North Korea and was pronounced dead. This confirmed his suspicion that the man he thought he had accidentally met in a car accident was the professor. She had always been part of his plan.

Meanwhile, the heist team has successfully dug the tunnel into the safe. They planned to move the money through the underground sewage system on the day of the summit. They knew a crowd would gather to protest the unification, and they wanted to use the distraction to their advantage. Woojin called Park Sun-ho and asked him to take her to the hospital, where Cha Mooyuk was admitted. Cha Mooyuk had escaped the professor’s hideout and was hospitalized after falling under a car. Woojin took the opportunity to attach a tracking device to the teacher’s jacket. Although he was soon warned against this by his associates,  he eventually managed to trick them. Raid Team, even if it meant maximum damage. Politicians had to stop the team to ensure the money they wanted to sanction after unification was still available. The team managed to defeat the police and escape through the tunnel. Berlin stayed behind in the vault to attack the task force as soon as they entered. But the woman he loved, Seoul, came to his rescue and managed to activate the bomb and block the tunnel as they planned. Meanwhile, the teacher hesitated. their plan, now that the police knew they were going to use the sewers to escape. But at that moment he noticed the map drawn by his father, on which he marked a secret passage. Although his father was not  with him, he came to his aid when he died in

They needed it more urgently. Through the secret passage, they managed to escape and board a train with all the money they had printed. Only Woojin guessed where they might have gone, but no one was willing to listen to her anymore. She went to the location alone with a gun and confronted the professor. He asked her to shoot if she wanted to stop him, even after she knew what politicians did against people. He failed to pull the trigger and the raid team escaped. Before leaving, the team distributed the 300 million won by popping inflated pigs in Peace Square to the crowds gathered to protest the corrupt politicians. The media reported on the professor-led heist and the corrupt politicians were exposed. People now knew that the politicians planned to use JEA as a cover to use the association’s sanctioned money to fund corporate corporations. The professor and his team didn’t just pull off a successful Heist, but they also uncovered the corruption that occurs on behalf of the association.

The second part of “Money Heist Korea: Joint Economic Area” hints at a possible comeback. A year after the robbery, Woojin continued to be interrogated as she was accused of involvement in the robbery. Soon she was contacted by a foreign company offering to represent her. They added that their service was already paid for. She knew it had to be the teacher taking care of her even though he was no longer in her life. She found the postcard he once showed her and talked about the place she wanted to visit. He traveled there hoping to meet him. When he asked for coffee with a stranger, the professor greeted them from behind. He invited her to join him on his next mission and she stared at him in amazement.

He promised that his plan would go down in crime history as revolutionary. In the middle of the credits, we meet a disappointed Cho Youngmin, the mint’s director. His family doesn’t want that. keep living with them. His affair was no longer a secret and he had to move. As he was loading his belongings into the truck, he noticed a box, which he angrily unloaded from the truck, stating that it did not belong to him.
