Narco-Saints �follows a civilian businessman who becomes involved in the National Intelligence Service’s covert operation to bring down a Korean drug lord operating in the South American country of Suriname.
The upcoming series came to be on Netflix with Ha Jung Woo’s proposal to director Yoon Jong Bin as he got fascinated by the gripping story of a civilian entrepreneur starting his business in Suriname. The director and The Spy Gone North writer Kwon Seong Hwi reportedly worked hand in hand together to come up with its script. Ha Jung Woo shared his first impression of the script, saying, “The story hooked me from the beginning as the characters were so alive and unique.”
Playing drug lord Jeon Yo Han in the upcoming series, Hwang Jung Min gushed, “Every episode left me wondering what would happen next. The script is just incredibly well-written.” Park Hae Soo, who stars as NIS agent Choi Chang Ho, added, “I love how characters play mind tricks on each other in this series. I think viewers will have fun guessing what will happen next.”
Jo Woo Jin, who takes on the role of the second-in-command of the drug ring, commented, “I thought I’ve worked with some of the cast members from this series, but I realized that I haven’t worked with any of them. We were dying to meet each other in person, and the brilliant cast was one reason I hopped on this project.”
Yoo Yeon Seok, who plays the legal advisor of Yo Han, remarked, “This is my first time working with director Yoon. I felt extremely thrilled to work with all of the actors starring in the series.”
Narco-Saints will drop on September 9th.
