I’ve been following “The Return of Superman” since it first aired, and all this time I thought Lee Hwi Jae is having a hard time looking for his twins all alone without the help of his wife for 48 hours. Last night, actor Song Il Guk made his entrance together with his triplets…. and that means, triple the trouble.
What I noticed on last night’s episode is that Song Il Guk must’ve helped his wife a lot with the boys, he seemed to know what he was doing, be it about food or when the boys were bickering each other. But first, an introduction to Song Il Guk’s 3 boys Dae Han, Min Guk and Man Sae…. Their names put together is translated as “Hooray for the Republic of Korea” (or “Long live the Republic of Korea”).
Weird, right? That’s my initial thought as well, however putting their family name or taking them separately, the names are kind of cute ( eg. Song Dae Han, Song Min Guk and Song Man Se…. although I normally heard the name Man Se on older people, it’s cute).
Even though the boys are triplets, the 3 are easily distinguishable given their completely opposite personalities. Like for example:
The first son Dae Han is a trouble maker. And because of his jumpy personality, Song Il Guk makes him stay at the table thanks to a clock. Yes, a clock, the father sets the alarm and tells Dae Han that he has to stay (without fussing around) for 30 minutes.
The second son, Min Guk is full of “aegyo” and at the same time compared to his other two brothers; he has a more quiet personality.
Lastly the third son, Man Se is the most talkative out of the three, and also given his father’s description, a “free spirit”.
Whether they have different personalities or different ways of doing things when Song Il Guk hears silence, then it means that the boys are most definitely up to something, and this was proved when Dae Han, Min Guk and Man Se were whispering while doing trouble so the father won’t hear them.
I really enjoyed seeing Song Il Guk in a different situation compared to his image as an actor. The boys are sweet, sometimes they make trouble but at the end of the day it’s triple the happiness.
