Taking a leaf from the Netflix promo guidebook, a new video announcement has come out on Disney+, allowing us a sneak preview into the year’s lineup. It’s actually exciting to see early footage and stills, as many of these shows seem to go behind an iron curtain after initial casting news, making us wait months – or years even – before we can start preparing the popcorn. Note to self: buy more snacks.

Disney+ has released a poster and a teaser for its upcoming drama “Uncle Samsik”!

On April 2, Disney+ confirmed that the 16-episode series “Uncle Samsik” will premiere on May 15.

“Uncle Samsik” is a drama that tells the story of the ambitions and bromance of two men, Uncle Samsik and Kim San, who survived the turbulent period of the early 1960s in Korea.

Song Kang Ho plays Park Doo Chil, who is nicknamed Uncle Samsik because he managed to feed his family three meals a day even during wartime (the phrase “samsik” can mean “three meals” in Korean), and Byun Yo Han plays Kim San, a top elite student from the Korea Military Academy who dreams of changing the country.

The newly released poster captures Uncle Samsik smiling broadly while holding snacks in one hand and dried fish in the other. The caption reads, “When the stomach is full, the heart opens up.”

Meanwhile, the accompanying teaser starts with someone asking who Uncle Samsik is. Several people then call out for “Uncle Samsik,” with Joo Yeo Jin (Jin Ki Joo) asking, “You are Uncle Samsik, right?”

When Kim San wonders aloud what “Uncle Samsik” means, someone explains why Park Doo Chil is nicknamed Uncle Samsik. At the end of the teaser, Doo Chil expresses fondness for the name by saying, “Everyone calls me that out of love and respect. I love it so much, my nickname.”

The upcoming historical drama Uncle Samsik has confirmed its release for May 15.

Uncle Samsik tells the story of Uncle Sam Sik (Song Kang Ho) and an elite young man, Kim San (Byun Yo Han), who dream of building a country where everyone eats well and lives well. The K-drama is set in the chaotic era of the 1960s. 

The teaser shows scenes of various people looking for Uncle Sam Sik. Some call out to him with joy, while others do so with suspicion, earnestness, or disdain.

Sam Sik is the portmanteau for "three" (sam) and "meals" (siksa). 

Responding to the question "What does Sam Sik mean?" elite young man Kim San explains, "It signifies that even during the war, he ate three meals a day, and his family never went hungry." To this, Song  Uncle Sam Sik responds, "Everyone calls me that out of love and respect. I really like it. It's my nickname."

The poster portrays Uncle Sam Sik's warm gaze and gentle smile while he holds snacks in one hand and a dried fish in the other. The text "When your stomach is full, your heart opens" encapsulates Uncle Sam Sik's motto and his life philosophy.

Song Kang-ho is nicknamed Uncle Sam-shik

by lovepark

After an 18-year illustrious film career, Song Kang-ho (Cobweb) makes his television series debut in Disney+’s 1960s period drama Uncle Sam-shik. Set against the backdrop of post-war Korea — a time of political revolution and corruption — this upcoming drama tells the story of a legendary man whose name is spread far and wide: Uncle Sam-shik.

The teaser opens with a child asking who Uncle Sam-shik is as they receive two bundles of food at their front door. We then get a glimpse of the various characters that will populate this world as they each call out to Sam-shik. The list of faces includes Yoo Jae-myung (Song of the Bandits), Tiffany Young (Reborn Rich), Lee Kyu-hyung (Big Bet), Jin Ki-joo (My Perfect Stranger), Seo Hyun-woo (A Shop for Killers), and many more.

 

As someone asks what Uncle Sam-shik means, Byun Yo-han (Mr. Sunshine) explains its significance: even during the war, he fed his family three meals a day and wouldn’t starve them. In Korean, “samshik” means three meals a day, adding to the lore that Uncle Sam-shik isn’t just a name but a title.

 

 

Song Kang-ho then answers, as the titular Uncle Sam-shik, that everyone calls him that out of love and respect. He couldn’t be happier with his nickname, and in a dark room, he chuckles as the camera cuts away. Given the time period, I suspect our hero is being “interrogated,” but even in the face of danger, he laughs.

Like the teaser, the poster explains the origin of his nickname (i.e., he kept his family fed) and depicts Uncle Sam-shik in a similar vein. As if offering the audience some food, Song Kang-ho holds sweets in one hand and dried fish in the other while standing in what looks like a bakery. The tagline also reads, “If the belly is full, the heart will open.”

Written and directed by filmmaker Shin Yeon-shik (Cassiopeia), Disney+’s Uncle Sam-shik is slated for 16 episodes and will premiere May 15.
