Song Il Guk joins Asian Games

Song Il Guk’s triplets are a delight to see. They are so cute (just like their dad). As early as now, they have been making waves on Korean TV. They are in the show “Superman Returns” shown on KBS2.

Song Il Guk came from a line of distinguished patriots in Korean history. His maternal great grandfather was Kim Chwa Jin, a general who fought against Japanese imperialism and a leader of Korean independence movement. Song Il Guk’s maternal grandfather was Kim Du Han who was a politician. He was an Assembly member for two terms. And lastly, his mother is Kim Eul Dong, a famous actress and a lawmaker.

It’s no wonder his triplets are name Dae Han, Min Guk and Man Se which translates to “Viva South Korea”. In an interview before, Song Il Guk said that if he ever had twin girls they would be named Woori and Nara which means “our country”. Cute!

On September 17th, Song Il Guk and his triplets joined the torch relay for the Asian Games. He carried all three of them plus a torch. The triplets also carried fake torches. Song Il Guk lives in Incheon’s Songdo district. Here is a video of the torch relay.

And here are a few photos:
