The overseas media outlets heaped lavish praise on the show. RogerEbert wrote, “‘Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area’ is ambitious for its plan, exciting for the twists and turns, inviting for its characters, and is just plain addictive.” Rolling Stone applauded the cast but showed disappointment in the romantic affairs. “The all-star cast is more than capable of delivering the goods. Yet the lack of chemistry between the romantic partners hinders, rather than enhances the plot.”
