Hwang Jung-min, Ha Jung-woo, Yoo Yeon-seok, Park Hae-soo and more lead new Netflix blockbuster

Top actors Ha Jung-woo (Along with the Gods), Hwang Jung-min (Hush), Yoo Yeon-seok (Hospital Playlist), Park Hae-soo (Prison Playbook) have been confirmed to star in the six-episode Netflix original drama “Suriname” (working title). Jo Woo-jin (Mr. Sunshine), and Chu Ja-hyun (My Unfamiliar Family) have also recently confirmed that they will join in this new drama.

The drama project is based on a true story about a Korean immigrant who became the top drug kingpin in the South American country Suriname. The first script reading was already held last March 22. Hwang Jung-min will lead the drama as the powerful drug cartel boss while Ha Jung-woo will become his nemesis as a national intelligence agent who chases after him.

The drama will be another reunion project of PD Yoon Jong-bin (Gongjak, Beastie Boys) with Hwang Jung-min and Ha Jung-woo.

The project reportedly has a whopping budget of KRW40 billion (or approximately USD33.76 million).

Suriname will begin filming this April, but a release date has yet to be announced.
