Song Il-gook is father to triplets Dae-han, Min-guk and Man-se. He married his wife in 2008 and they had triplets 4 years later in 2012. The father and sons starred in the KBS 2TV show "The Return of the Superman" for a while.
"The triplets are the greatest gift of my life"
Song Il-gook loves his triplets. He talked mostly about them during the interview. "Thanks to them I am more responsible as an actor and I have a friendlier image. I wouldn't be here today without them".
"I thought a lot about starring in "The Return of the Superman". I worried that show wouldn't have a good influence on my children. My wife thought the same. I asked Yoo Dong-geun for advice and he said I should do it. He said I would earn more from the TV show and in fact the triplets got so much love I owe so much to the show".
"I am not afraid of anything after becoming a father. I used to be picky about work before my children. I wanted to look cool and cared a lot about my image. However, marriage and my children have changed the way I think".
"I can do anything with the energy my children give me. It's the pressure of being a father. I am happy as a father and I love being called, 'the triplets dad' instead of 'actor Song Il-gook'".
"There are ups and downs of being in a TV show. However, "The Return of the Superman" was the best thing that ever happened to me. The best broadcasting team captured my children's best moments on tape. It's going to mean a lot to them in the future. I am just waiting for the time when I can watch "The Return of the Superman" again with my grown triplets".
Song Il-gook and his boys stepped down from the show on the 7th of February but they can be seen on Song Il-gook's SNS. He posts everyday pictures of the triplets himself. The triplets' exclusive SNS has more than a million followers. Fans even presented Song Il-gook with a better phone so that he can take better pictures of the triplets.
About his goal in life, Song Il-gook said, "I want to be a proud father and a good husband. It's nothing fancy but it takes a lot to stick by what you have".
"Raising children is hard. I am only 80% good enough to be a daddy. The other 20% isn't easy to fill up. But one thing is for sure and that's for the parents to be happy for the children to be happy".
