Song Triplets Transform Into Scholars and Take a Wagon Ride in “Superman Returns”
On the January 25 broadcast of “Superman Returns,” Song Il Gook and his triplets Dae Han, Min Gook, and Man Se visit a folk village. During their visit, the triplets transform into traditional Korean scholars and wear the costume of scholars from Sungkyunkwan, a historically important and respected Korean university. They also go for a ride in a cart, pulled along by their father.
Dressed in official scholar outfits, the triplets actually receive a lesson, in etiquette. The teacher teaches the boys how to properly greet elders. To practice, the teacher asks Dae Han to address him as he should properly address his father. Dae Han turns to the teacher, politely puts his hands over his belly button, and answers, “Yes, father?” The teacher smiles upon seeing Dae Han’s perfect and cute greeting.
Youngest triplet Man Se, asked to do the same greeting, answers the teacher’s call of “Man Se” by repeating back “Man Se!” with a bright smile.
Meanwhile, middle triplet Min Gook, usually known for his overflowing cuteness, cries during the lessons because he was singled out for drawing on the floor during the calligraphy lesson.
Elsewhere in the folk village, the triplets go for a ride in cart, pulled along by their father Song Il Gook. Dae Han, Min Gook, and Man Se have expressionless faces as their father struggles to pull the wagon. The sight looks like a scene out of historical drama.
