Lupin is about a thief named Assane Diop, inspired by one of the most popular characters in French literature, Arsène Lupin.
Assane Diop is a middle-aged man who, at first glance, appears to be an ordinary person, working temporary jobs. But actually, he is incredibly talented in disguise and robbery. Assane, a French of Senegalese origin, devotes the remaining time of his incredible robberies to his ex-wife, with whom he is still friends and his son. He somehow stole a precious necklace from the Louvre Museum in Paris. Rubbery he made takes him to the tragic incident of his father. His father was falsely accused of stealing the necklace 25 years ago and later committed suicide in prison. Assane will hunt down the real criminals and avenge his father. Here, a fast-paced, exciting, and innovative perspective is presented to the audience in this series, where we watch the modernized version of a classic character Arsène Lupin. It’s really worth seeing if you still haven’t watch!
