Uncle Samsik is very unique with a unique story and unique characters. It is a must-watch with great direction and amazing writing. Uncle samsik takes us back into the era of 1960s and it is so beautifully done that everything looks very real.

The performances especially by Song Kang-ho who plays the character of Uncle Samsik is very good. Since only 5 episodes of the series are available right ow, there is a lot to be seen in this series and we cannot wait to get deep into this series.

The chemistry between Byun Yo-Han and Song Kang-ho is good to watch and the discomfort is sometimes the best part about the series.

Uncle Samsik Episode 1-5 Review – What’s Bad?

Honestly, what is really irritating is to get deep into this series and now having to wait for the next episodes. Just as we were enjoying the series, the fun stops.

Also some parts of the series seem to be a little unrealistic and that is never a good thing. Sometimes the mysticism gets a little too far to digest.

Sometimes the script is also a little hard to keep up with as there are too many things happening.
