Korea’s favorite triplet father Song Il Gook recently praised Sean, who, as well as being a singer, is now more famous as the “God of Infant Care” for fathering four children.
Song Il Gook said, “I recently went to a wedding and saw Sean there. Normally, I only just say hi to people, eat, and go home, but that day, my wife and I stayed there until the end with Sean and his wife, talking about our children the whole time. It’s amazing what they’re doing. After talking with them, I saw Sean in a whole different light.”
He continued, “Sean really is the God of Infant Care. If he goes to the gym at night, Sean goes after putting the kids to bed, and when he goes in the morning, he comes back home before the kids wake up. I used to complain to my wife because I did not have the energy to go to the gym after taking care of the kids. When I heard Sean’s story, I tried to copy his workout routine, but after doing it twice in the early mornings, I ached all over. I have been wanting to participate in a competition with him so I invited him when there was an opportunity. It was at the Incheon Asian Para Games and throughout the whole 10 km, he ran better than me with his four kids.”
He also added, “To be honest, I can’t go out too much with the kids. Even when we go out together with my wife, it’s really hard. We only go out sometimes when the aunts come over. It’s fine when we have the kids’ train for them to ride on, but we can’t imagine what it would be like to just let them run wild in the park. I feel so sorry for them. But through ‘Superman Returns’ we got the chance to do things that we wouldn’t be able to do otherwise so we’re really thankful for that.”
As well as appearing on the popular TV show “Superman Returns,” Song Il Gook is also currently shooting a drama called “I am You” and the movie “Entangled.”
