Song Kang-ho, Sol Kyung-gu and Kim Yun-seok, Back With Dramas

Actors such as Song Kang-ho, Sol Kyung-gu, and Kim Yun-seok, who recently received poor screen reports, will release a series of dramas for the first time since their debut or in decades. Earlier, Choi Min-sik attracted young fans with his first drama "Big Bet" in 26 years, and then succeeded in reviving the screen with "Exhuma", drawing more attention to their drama challenge.


Song Kang-ho, who was disappointed by a series of failures in the success of leading films such as "Broker", "Emergency Declaration" and "Cobweb", will present "Uncle Sam-sik", a 10-part masterpiece drama with a production cost of 40 billion won, through Disney+ in May. Disney+, which is the first drama in Song Kang-ho's life since his debut in 1990, and has not been able to produce any significant box office hits since "Moving", is drawing keen attention from both inside and outside the broadcast.

In the drama set in the turbulent 1960s, Song Kang-ho plays Park Doo-chil, the main character who earns the nickname "Uncle Sam-sik" with his rule that he must feed three meals a day even during war. He will draw a bromance of love and hatred with Byun Yo-han, who plays Kim San, an elite young man from the Military Academy who wants to achieve his dream with Park Doo-chil.

Sol Kyung-gu and Kim Yun-seok, who performed less than expected with the masterpieces "The Moon" and "Noryang: Deadly Sea" presented at the theater during the peak season last year, will recover their pride with Netflix dramas "The Whirlwind" and "The Frog" which will be released in the third quarter, respectively.

Park Kyeong-soo's new work "The Whirlwind" which earned the title of 'master of political genre' through his works such as "Empire of Gold" and "Punch - Drama", depicts a fierce political war. Sol Kyung-gu, who starred in a drama for the first time in the series, will play the role of a prime minister who tries to root out corrupt power, setting up a confrontation with Kim Hee-ae, deputy prime minister for economic affairs.

Kim Yun-seok will go out to show the essence of the mystery genre through the drama "The Frog" which was chosen for the first time in 17 years since MBC's "Love Me When You Can" in 2007. He plays the owner of the pension, where his quiet daily life begins to shake due to a suspicious woman appearing at a pension one summer, and harmonizes with Yoon Kye-sang, Go Min-si, and Lee Jung-eun.
