Song Il Gook and Triplets Reported to Be Leaving “The Return of Superman,” Show Responds
We all know it’s inevitable. Song Il Gook and his lovable triplets will one day leave the popular KBS variety show “The Return of Superman.” It will leave a hole in our hearts and have us crying tears equal to, but not as cute as, the amount Minguk has shed over his food being taken away.
Local news source Ilgan Sports reports that actor Song Il Gook has decided that he and his sons will stop appearing on the show early next year (around January – February). The exact timing is still in discussion. This reportedly became known during discussions about CF contracts that involve the triplets, with the companies wanting to know the Song family’s plans for leaving the show that made them famous.
In response to this report, both Song Il Gook’ reps and KBS have stated that nothing is decided, which is a vague enough answer to have fans of the show worried.
This past July, it was reported that Song Il Gook will star in the KBS historical drama “Jang Young Sil” (working title), expected to air starting January 2016.
