Song Kang-ho gives Byun Yo-han everything in Uncle Sam-shik

by lovepark

unclesamsik_postertop2.jpg

Disney+ has dropped a new teaser and posters for its upcoming period piece Uncle Sam-shik. Starring Song Kang-ho (Cobweb) in his drama debut, the show takes place in post-war Korea during a tumultuous era of corruption and resilience. Nicknamed “Uncle Sam-shik” which means three meals a day in Korean, our titular hero played by Song explains that everyone addresses him as such out of love and respect.

The teaser then introduces the show’s other protagonist Kim San played by Byun Yo-han (Mr. Sunshine). He gives an impassioned speech about the future direction for the country, and his ideas catch the attention of Uncle Sam-shik. He approaches San with a smile and food in hopes of using the latter’s dreams to achieve his own, but in order to succeed, Uncle Sam-shik will need some help.

 

Enter Lee Kyu-hyung (Big Bet) as Kang Sung-min who offers to make things possible for Uncle Sam-shik. However, the price for his assistance is steep as Sung-min orders him to kill a man, and the tone of the teaser shifts. We get a glimpse at a darker Uncle Sam-shik who promises to give San everything — including the power to get rid of those who stand in his way. As San deliberates his options, he asks Uncle Sam-shik why he chose him. The reply: “I see it. Your ambitions.”

In a time of chaos reigned by hopes and greed, the world fights for control and the name that brings forth success: Uncle Sam-shik. Not everyone, though, is a fan, and Joo Yeo-jin, played by Jin Ki-joo (My Perfect Stranger), warns San that he’s turning him into a monster. Despite the signs, the devil’s deal is too sweet since all you need to do in order to get food is say his name.

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

Upcoming Disney+ drama “Uncle Samsik” has shared new stills of Song Kang Ho!

“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.

Even before its premiere, “Uncle Samsik” has been garnering attention both domestically and internationally for being the first-ever drama series starring actor Song Kang Ho, the first Korean male ever to win an acting award at the Cannes Film Festival. Song Kang Ho, who is known for showing unique acting transformations in each of his works, is set to showcase another side of himself in the upcoming series as he takes on the role of Park Doo Chil, a character unlike any he has ever played before.

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), is a strategist who has the ability to accurately read people’s desires, quickly assess situations, and formulate meticulous plans.

Ever since his childhood, Park Doo Chil has had to fight for his survival, using any means necessary to make ends meet. Upon meeting Kim San, an ambitious young man with dreams similar to his own (played by Byun Yo Han), he begins to make grand plans to help fulfill those dreams.

The newly released stills give a glimpse of the different sides of Uncle Samsik. In the first photo, he exudes a warm and friendly aura as he smiles brightly, while in another, he appears to be secretly strategizing his next move. In yet another photo, he is captured staring off into the distance with an inscrutable expression on his face.

On how he prepared for his first-ever drama role, Song Kang Ho remarked, “I approached the role with the attitude of a rookie, learning and working diligently. I worked fiercely and passionately.”

Director Shin Yeon Shick commented, “Actor Song Kang Ho has portrayed a variety of characters in a variety of genres up until now. In ‘Uncle Samsik,’ he captured even deeper emotions and a wide variety of aspects of life.”

“Uncle Samsik” will premiere on May 15.
