About Narco-Saints TV Series:

Suriname (Korean: 수리남) is a South Korean streaming television series directed and co-written by Yoon Jong-bin, and starring Ha Jung-woo, Hwang Jung-min, Park Hae-soo, Jo Woo-jin, Yoo Yeon-seok, Kim Min-gwi, and Chang Chen. Inspired by true story, the series depicts an ordinary entrepreneur who has no choice but to risk his life in joining the secret mission of government agents to capture a South Korean drug lord operating in Suriname.

On March 23, 2021, the cast of K-drama Suriname, inspired by Netflix’s Narcos, was announced to include Jo Woo-jin, Yoo Yeon-seok, Park Hae-soo, and Choo Ja-hyun, in addition to Ha Jung-woo and Hwang Jung-min, who had already been confirmed as the lead roles. The first script reading of the cast was held on March 22, 2021, at a location in Seoul.

Production of Suriname was planned to be filmed at the Dominican Republic in April last year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the production was postponed indefinitely. Later, production started filming on a set in South Korea from last April and decided to shoot in the Dominican Republic, not in Suriname, for about two months starting in November.

On November 9, 2021, it was reported that actors and staffs of Suriname departed to Dominican Republic from the end of October and plans return to Korea in mid-December. Yoo Yeon-seok recently returned to Korea in the end of October, Hwang Jung-min and Ha Jung-woo departed to Dominican Republic in late October and early November. Jo Woo-jin is scheduled to leave the country soon. This story background location will not resemble the Surinamese country.

The series was produced with an estimated cost of ₩35 billion.

It was released on Netflix on September 9, 2022, alongside an English language dub renamed Narco-Saints, in order to draw similarities to Netflix’s previous similarly-premised series Narcos (2015–2017) and Narcos: Mexico (2018–2021), the “play next” of the latter series linking to Narco-Saints.
