Song Il Gook Cries While Reminiscing About His Triplets’ Hardships on “Superman Returns”
On the August 10 episode of KBS 2TV’s “Superman Returns,” actor Song Il Gook reminisced about the difficulties that his three sons experienced when they were babies.
While lying down on their backs, the father and sons were looking at photos of the young boys that were projected on the ceiling. Looking at each photo, the Song Il Gook and the boys had some fun distinguishing who’s who in the picture.
While looking at photos of Man Se, Song Il Gook asked his youngest child who was born a with a very low birth weight, “Man Se, did you know how worried we were when you were born?” While the father was absorbed in reminiscing about the time when his precious little boys were born, the kids got a little bored and showed dissatisfaction at their father’s story-telling time. Song Il Gook then laughed and said, “Okay, shall we just watch Pororo?”
During the interview with the producer, Song Il Gook talked more about his son Man Se who was very light and little when he was born. “He was born weak at 1.8 kgs (3.9 lbs). We were so worried that we had his hearing ability re-tested twice or thrice.”
Dae Han, the oldest of the triplets, also had a hard time, revealed Song Il Gook. “Dae Han also had to endure eight months at the bottom (of his brothers in the womb). He really endured that position well so the other two could have better positions and because of that, we treated him as the older brother of the two,” revealed the actor.
“Min Gook had serious atopy and because of that, we’ve had a lot of sleepless nights to keep watch of him because he continuously scratched himself,” added Song Il Gook.
