Guns, drugs, zealotry, and violence are abound in the upcoming series, Narco-Saints, from showrunner Yoon Jong-bin. Debuting all six episodes on Netflix from September 9, the new crime drama series marks a reunion for Yoon with actor Ha Jung-woo who has starred in nearly all of Yoon’s films since 2005’s The Unforgiven.
Narco-Saints follows an ordinary entrepreneur enlisted by the National Intelligence Service for a secret government mission to capture a Korean drug lord operating in South America. Yoon is joined by his The Spy Gone North co-writer Kwon Sung-hui in creating the series which is reportedly based on true events.
The show also comes stacked with a bevy of A-list screentalent, including multi-nominated Squid Game actor Park Hae-soo, Yoon’s The Spy Gone North star Hwang Jung-min, and Taiwanese film star Chang Chen of Dune fame. Also starring are Jo Woo-jin (Alienoid) and Yoo Yeon-Seok (New Year Blues), and the official trailer is atop the page, and looks absolutely wild!
