‘Uncle Samsik’ & ‘Nine Puzzles’ Get Disney+ Release Dates

Disney+ tentpole Uncle Samsik will debut on May 15 on the platform globally, and on Hulu. The streamer also announced that Korean crime thriller Nine Puzzles will premiere exclusively on the platform in 2025.

South Korean series Uncle Samsik stars veteran actor Song Kang-ho (Parasite, A Taxi Driver) as Pak Doochill/Uncle Samsik and Byun Yo-han (Mr. Sunshine) as Kim San.

Set in 1960s Korea, it follows Kim San, an ambitious idealist and a recipient of an ‘Albright Scholarship.’ Driven to turn his country’s fortunes around, San crosses paths with Pak Doochill, a shady fixer who adapts quickly to any situation and together, the pair form an uneasy alliance.

The political drama will release five episodes on May 15, followed by two episodes a week until a three-part season finale on June 19.

Nine Puzzles follows two intrepid investigators who have to put aside their differences and work together after a serial killer begins playing games with police. The show stars Kim Da-mi (Itaewon Class), Son Suk-ku (Big Bet) and Kim Sung-kyun (Moving).

After a childhood marked by tragedy, Yoon Ena (played by Kim Da-mi) becomes a criminal profiler and is thrown headfirst into a dangerous new case. Ena is forced to team up with her biggest critic — fellow investigator Kim Han-seam — to solve the case before the killer takes another victim.

Korea has become a strategic priority for Disney+ in Asia, as K-content continues to gather followers around the world.
