In addition to this, “Uncle Sam Sik” is a drama where Song Kang Ho and director Shin Yeon Sik will collaborate once again after working together on two upcoming projects “One Win” and “Cobweb” (working titles) in succession. Starring Song Kang Ho as a lead role, “One Win” will be Korea’s first volleyball film, which director Shin Yeon Sik took charge of directing, writing, and producing. Director Shin Yeon Sik also co-produced and participated in the script writing for the film “Cobweb,” which is directed by Kim Ji Woon.

A source from the production company Slingshot Studio remarked, “Sam Sik, the main character of the 10-part drama series ‘Uncle Sam Sik,’ has a diverse narrative. Needless to say, it is expected that actor Song Kang Ho will breathe life into this character with exuberance. We will produce and present a high quality well-made drama to the viewers.”

The broadcast schedule for “Uncle Sam Sik” is under discussion.

Song Kang-ho's first drama 'Samsik Uncle' joins Byun Yo-han, Lee Kyu-hyung, and Seo Hyun-woo...

 

2022101124135710.jpg

 

On the 11th, casting news was revealed through the press release of 'Uncle Samsik

 

Break News Reporter Park Dong-je = On the 11th, 'Uncle Samsik' said through a press release, "Actors Byun Yo-han, Lee Kyu-hyung, and Seo Hyun-woo confirmed their appearance in 'Samsik Uncle', which attracted attention as actor Song Kang-ho's first drama series appearance. The casting has been completed.”

 

The new drama series 'Uncle Samsik' (directed, written by Shin Yeonsik, produced by Slingshot Studio, 10 episodes) is a drama dealing with the passionate desire and bromance of two men, 'Uncle Samsik' and 'Kim San', who survived the turbulent period in the early 1960s. All.

 

Sam-sik, who said, “I ate three meals a day during the war,” and the super elite Kim San, two fictional characters, write a story of love, faith, or doubt. It is the first drama series to be registered in the filmography of actor Song Kang-ho, and is receiving a lot of attention.

 

Here, the actors that come to mind first with their extraordinary top-class acting skills in Korea have gathered here. Following Song Kang-ho, who played the role of 'Uncle Samsik' in the title role, actors such as Byun Yo-han, Lee Kyu-hyung, and Seo Hyeon-woo were cast, who raise the credibility of acting just by name alone.

 

First, Byun Yo-han took on the role of 'Kim-san', the protagonist who will draw a passionate bromance with Sam-sik's uncle. Kim San, the top elite from the six schools, is an Albright Scholarship student and returns to Korea with the dream of making Korea an industrial nation by changing his major to economics during training in the United States. But in the midst of being frustrated by hitting a wall with reality, Samsik appears in front of him saying that we have the same dream and that he will make it come true. Byun Yo-han, the owner of the eight-color acting ability that has exploded at the box office with the recent movie 'Hansan: The Appearance of the Dragon', is also the biggest spectating point of 'Uncle Samsik'.

 

Lee Kyu-hyung plays the next leader candidate, Kang Seong-min. Kang Seong-min used to use Samsik to fulfill his desires, but now he is a person who wants to give up on Samsik. The reason Samsik has no choice but to fall deeply into Kim San is also because of his antipathy towards Kang Seong-min. From 'Haerongi' in 'Wise Prison Life' to 'Circus Man Villain' in 'Voice 4', Lee Kyu-hyung, who has given birth to a life story in every work, is reborn as an incarnation of cold desire this time, setting a dramatic confrontation with Song Kang-ho. It will lead to tension.

 

Seo Hyun-woo takes on the role of ‘Jung Han-min’, an elite soldier from the sixth grade. Jeonghan-min attended training as an Albright Scholar with San Kim, but unlike him, he is a man with a hot heart who dreams of reforming the military by staying in the military. But like Kim San, he also bumps into the wall of reality. Seo Hyun-woo's heavy 'scene stealer', who has repeatedly transformed by exuding a unique charm standing at the boundary between good and evil, moving across the screen and in the movie 'Decision to break up', 'Honest Candidate 2' and dramas 'Flower of Evil' and 'Adamas' It is expected that the smoke will shine again this time.

 

As a result, 'Uncle Samsik', which has the best actor lineup, is expected to produce a high-quality work by director Shin Yeon-sik in charge of directing and scripting. The production company Slingshot Studio said, "We have completed all the major castings for the 10-episode drama series 'Uncle Samsik'. Following Song Kang-ho, Byun Yo-han, Lee Kyu-hyung, and Seo Hyun-woo, all of them have completed a very strong lineup by joining trusted actors whose acting skills are guaranteed. I will visit the viewers with a well-made work of high perfection that is worthy of its name.”
