‘Uncle Samsik’ is written and directed by Shin Yeon-shick, known for Korean films such as ‘The Russian Novel’ and ‘Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet’. It also marks Shin’s series debut.

“‘Uncle Samsik’ tells the story of a young idealist man Kim San who is driven to turn his country’s fortunes around. The man attracts the attention of a shady fixer, who adapts to any situation and takes whatever steps necessary to help him accomplish his boss’ goals,” read the official synopsis of the show.

Song will play the fixer Pak Doochill/Uncle Samsik and Byun Yo-han, known for K-drama “Mr Sunshine”, will essay the role of Kim San.
