The South American country’s foreign minister of Suriname has expressed his dissatisfaction with the Netflix‘s Narco-Saints.
Narco-Saints is a K-Drama produced by Netflix that focuses on capturing a Korean drug lord living in Suriname. A performance based on a true story.
According to an article in the Suriname Herald, the minister lamented the portrayal of the country on the show, saying that despite the country’s efforts to distance itself from drugs, the drama could damage the country’s image.
The country, however, is on the verge of an image recontamination crisis over the recent Netflix series. I am going to contact Korea on this matter.
