About Sam[]

In the episode "Deal Me Out", Captain Pak, a South Korean Army surgeon and friend of Hawkeye, Trapper and Henry, arrives with Major Sidney Freedman at the camp to relax and engage in a planned poker game with the surgeons in the swamp. When Henry has to deal an aged local man who claims to have gotten injured at the hands of the camp ambulance, that Radar had been driving at the time. Sam gives the surgeon the lowdown on the man, the notorious "Whiplash Hwang", or "the falldown King of Korea", as referred to by Pak, who was a farmer at wars' beginning, who has made a living out of falling down in front of running trucks and jeeps, pretending to be hit by them, and threatens to sue the US Army in exchange for whatever monetary compensation.

In the episode "The Chosen People", Capt. Pak serves as translator for another Korean farmer who claims that the 4077th was on his land, whose family attempts to set up shop on it.
