Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

The series tells an entertaining, albeit almost unbelievable, story about how a local entrepreneur from South Korea gets caught up the violent world of international drug smuggling. Told from Kang In-gu's rather matter-of-fact point of view, it reveals how he risks his life and uses his business savvy to negotiate with drug lords and gain their trust in an effort to bring them down. Narco-Saints is intense, but well written and it's easy to get absorbed in it. But with every intense twist and turn, you have to wonder how much of this extraordinary narrative is based on truth. Nonetheless, it's worth the watch, even if the tale feels a little tall.
