Suriname threatens legal action over South Korean hit Netflix show

Suriname will explore legal action against the producers of South Korea’s hit Netflix series “Narco-Saints” which fosters negative images of the country by portraying it as a “narco state,” its government has said.

The show, released this month and titled “Suriname” in South Korea, tells the story of a man who risked his life to join a secret mission to capture a Korean drug lord operating in Suriname, based on real-life events from about two decades ago.

But the Latin American country said the show presented it as a “narco state” based on past “crime and cross-border activities” which the government had tried for decades to eradicate.

“Suriname no longer has the image that emerges in the series or no longer participates in these kinds of practices,” Foreign Minister Albert Ramdin said in a statement posted on Monday on the government’s website. US News
