South Korean actor Song Il-kook revealed that his triplets experienced a few encounters with racism during their stay in France.
In an interview with Newsen, as translated by AsiaOne, Song recalled his three children — Daehan, Minguk and Manse — enjoying themselves at a playground when someone suddenly threw a bottle of urine at them.
We met nasty people – from those who cursed at us solely for being Asian to those who threw a bottle of urine towards the kids while they were playing on the playground,” Song said.
Enraged by the incident, the 47-year-old father said he had “never been so angry” and “used every curse word that (he) knew” to defend his children from harm.
Despite the horrible experience, the actor believes that it is still educational for the children to live in a country where no one can recognize them.
Song, his triplets and wife, who is a judge, lived in France for a year after performing in the play “God of Carnage” in 2017, Soompi reported.
According to Song, the children are quickly growing up and have just started their first year in elementary school.
They’re adjusting well,” he said. “They were born on the same day from the same belly, but it’s amazing how different their personalities are. I wonder what’s the best way to care for each of their different energy levels and personalities.”
They were also assigned to three different homerooms, so it’s triple the work (at school) too,” Song added.
Daehan, Minguk and Manse have made $4.6 million through endorsement deals alone, AsiaOne reported in 2015.
