Song Il Gook is a popular South Korean actor. He starred in several historical Korean dramas such as Jumong and Emperor of the Sea. He graduated from Cheongju University and majored in Performing Arts. He is the grandson of Kim Du Han, great-grandson of Kim Jwa Jin, the famous Anarchist and Korean independence movement general during the early 1900s. Song is the son of actress and congresswoman Kim Eul Dong.

Song typically takes on physically challenging roles that require sword-fighting, martial arts, and horsemanship. He is a vice-president of the Korean Triathlon Confederation and participated in the 2008 Seoul International Triathlon Competition. In April 2008, Song carried the Olympic torch through Seoul.

Additionally, Song has talent as a sketch artist. His skill was captured during the filming of Emperor of the Sea and The Kingdom of The Winds.

In addition to acting, Song has modeled professionally, both on the runway and in print. In 2008, he and several of his colleagues, Joo Jin Mo, Go Soo, Jang Keun Suk, and Park Jae Jung were the subjects of the Kolon Christmas Photo Shoot.

In 2009, the state of Hawaii designated March 21 as Song Il Gook day.

In April 2010, Song was invited to the Blue House to dine with heads of state, including the president of Kazakhstan because the series Jumong garnered popularity in Kazakhstan.

Song adheres to a pescetarian diet for health and ethical reasons.

In October 2015, Song signed an exclusive contract with management agency C-JeS Entertainment.

On March 15, 2008, Song was wed to a Busan High Court Judge, initially identified only by her family name Jung, in a private traditional Korean wedding, away from the media spotlight at the Sheraton Walkerhill Hotel in Seoul. Later, Song's bride's full name was revealed to be Jeong Seung Yeon (정승연). On the morning of March 16, 2012, Song Il Gook’s wife, Jung Seung Yeon gave birth to triplet sons at a hospital in Seoul. The triplets are named Dae Han, Min Guk, and Man Se, which also means "Long Live the Republic of Korea" when said together. Song Il Gook with his three sons starred in the variety show The Return of Superman. Edit Biography
