Reports say that the real informant behind the Netflix series Narco-Saints has opened up about his thoughts on the series.

Based on true events, the series follows a civilian businessman who becomes involved in the National Intelligence Service’s covert operation to bring down a Korean drug lord operating in Suriname. Director Yoon Jong Bin recently shared the latest news of the heroic informant (hereinafter referred to as K) through a behind-the-scene clip uploaded on Netflix’s official Youtube channel.

In the 28-minute-long clip, the producer reveals the conversation he had with K. He said he asked K why he wanted to make this series and that K replied, “After all I’ve been through with the operation with the NIS, all I had left in my life was this story.” The director also talked about how K shared the story with co-workers, which nobody believed, and that there is a line similar to what he said in the final episode of the series.

In the final episode of the series, Choi Chang Ho (played by Park Hae Soo) visits Kang In Gu (Ha Jung Woo) after successfully arresting Jeon Yo Hwan (Hwang Jung Min) and offers him to take over two karaoke bars for free instead of granting him the cash he promised.

However, Kang In Gu turns down the offer and says, “How long do I have to keep my mouth shut about the NIS operation?” to which Choi Chang Ho replies, “You can tell the people around you, but the NIS won’t verify your words officially.”

Kang continues, “This story is all I’ve got after everything I went through with the operation. When my kids grow up, I want to at least tell them that their dad took part in a NIS operation.” Director Yoon said that this line was the most memorable as it was what K actually told him.
