Actor Song Il-gook, who starred in period drama “Jang Yeong-sil: The Greatest Scientist of Joseon,” talked about his triplet sons -- Dae-han, Min-guk and Man-se -- in an interview with local media on Monday.

“(When I was growing up), my mom never forced me to do something,” Song said. “I was able to do whatever I wanted. I hope my children can do whatever they want. I am kind of worried if all three would want to become actors, but I think that would not happen.”

“As of now, I think Man-se has the most potential as an actor. He is full of emotions. In the past, my wife returned from a funeral and told the kids about it. Dae-han and Min-guk asked why the person passed away, while Man-se said, ‘Mom, you must be sad.’ They have different emotions. They are from one womb, but they are totally different, which makes raising them interesting.”
