Even if you don’t have babies of your own, you can’t deny that they have an irresistible charm — just watching these tykes running around and laughing can brighten up your day. It’s probably why the Korean variety show “Return of Superman”, which launched in 2013, continues to be a hit — Korean or not, the cuteness of babies speaks to us in a universal language.
If you watch the show, then you might know of the Song Triplets — Daehan, Minguk, and Manse — who first appeared on the show in July 2014. Their dad is actor Song Il Gook, who is famous for the K-dramaJumong.
The triplets’ popularity soared while they were on the show and viewers greatly missed them when they left in 2017. It turns out, the whole family lived in France for a year so the kids won’t be too far from their mom, Jung Seung Yeon, who was pursuing further studies in the country.
“We were in Paris, France, and there were a lot of things that I felt while spending 24 hours a day with my wife and kids for a year. There were a lot of hard moments and happy moments," Il Gook said in a press conference for his play, "God of Carnage."

On his personal Instagram account, Il Gook keeps his fans updated about how his triplets are doing. And we can’t believe how grown up they are! From the adorable toddlers on the show, they are now wacky — but still super cute! — eight-year-olds (their Korean age).
Maybe it’s because we don’t see them as much, but a year after they left the show, the toddlers grew into kids!
They kept growing, but they didn’t leave their kakulitan behind.

They even know how to take selfies! In the caption, Il Gook writes, "Daehan gathered his brothers and this is the first selfie that the triplets took themselves!"
