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.”
