Yoon Jong Bin’s crime-thriller Narco-Saints will attempt to fill the gap left by Narcos in the Netflix lineup. The highly anticipated series will debut on Netflix in September 2022 and star Park Hae Soon, who starred in Money Heist and Squid Game. Here is what we currently know about Netflix’s first season of Narco-Saints. Yoon Jong Bin is the author and director of the upcoming South Korean crime-thriller series Narco-Saints (formerly known as The Accidental Narco). There has never been a better moment to be a k-drama lover with a Netflix subscription with highly anticipated k-dramas arriving in 2022 including the adaptation of Money Heist and Love to Hate You, plus plenty of internationally licenced content still to come.
What’s the Narco-Saints storyline?
The South American setting of Narco-Saints, which is based on actual events, is where the National Intelligence Service first became aware of a local drug lord. The intelligence service seeks the assistance of a regular businessman who had dreams of becoming wealthy in Suriname but instead was sucked into the world of drug trafficking.
Who are the Narco-Saints cast members?
Park Hae Soo from Squid Game is undoubtedly the most recognisable Narco-Saints cast member. The actor played Cho Sang Woo, or participant “No. 218,” in Squid Game. Park Hae Soo will appear as Berlin in the Korean adaptation of Money Heist on Netflix later this year.
Narco-Saints marks the Netflix debuts of actors Ha Jung Woo and Hwang Jung Min. Hwang Jung Min has only appeared in four drama series, including That Fool (2009), Korean Peninsula (2012), and Hush (2020).
Ha Jung Woo appeared in five k-dramas between 2002 and 2016. Narco-Saints will be his first k-drama role in six years, following his appearance as himself in the 2016 serial Entourage.
