15 Things the Return of Superman dads do for their children
Korean boys are romanticists for their girls, and Korean dads are such sweethearts for their children. We’ve prepared a list of 15 things the Korean "superdads" of Return of Superman do for their children. Come take a look!
1. Run a triathlon
This is by far the most epic thing any father did. Actor Song Il Kuk successfully ran a triathlon on the newest episode of The Return of Superman, carrying his triplets Dae Han, Min Gook and Man Se while swimming, cycling and running. He and the triplets also carried the Olympic flame at 2014 Incheon Asia Olympics.
2. Recreate the best scene from his hit movie
When the Superman family visited Jeju Island, actor Uhm Tae Woong brought Ji On to the house where he filmed his hit movie Architecture 101 with Miss A Suzy. He recreated the popular scene of the film with daughter Ji On in beautiful Jeju Island, lying on the rooftop of the house looking at the moving clouds.
3. Carry a snake around his neck
A dad’s love enables anything, even when it’s carrying a huge snake around his neck. Song Il Kuk was scared to do it, but he did it anyway.
4. Endure heartbreaks
Korean Japanese MMA fighter Choo Sung Hoon had to go through many disappointments, first with Pororo then with Choo Sarang’s boyfriends Yuto and Song Man Se. Every time he asked, “Who do you like more, daddy or Man Se?” he had to ready himself to be heartbroken.
5. Learn to cook
Comedian Lee Hwi Jae used to be a horrible cook. Over the year’s time he’s filmed The Return of Superman, he actually learned how to cook and now makes delicious pumpkin soup for his adorable twins Suh Uhn and Suh Joon.
6. Build a swing in the backyard
Uhm Tae Woong built a swing for his daughter Ji On, along with a tent and other play things.
7. Drive a bus
When all four dads and their children visited Jeju Island for vacation, Song Il Kuk got a license to drive a bus so he could give a personal tour for the big family. A week before filming The Return of Superman, he visited Jeju Island and drove his routes just to make sure!
8. Play makeup
Choo Sung Hoon played the role of a client, sitting in front of toy vanity and letting makeup artist Choo Sarang draw on his face with red lipstick.
9. Bike around park
Lee Hwi Jae and Song Il Kuk biked with their twins and triplets on trailers. They sure know how to have fun with kids while working out!
10. Expose to nature
Lee Hwi Jae, hoping the twins will grow to love animals, took them to a kitty café to pet and play with cats.
11. Teach them about family
Uhm Tae Woong invited his older sister and singer Uhm Jung Hwa to teach Ji On songs her aunt used to sing in the 90s!
12. Cry with joy
Uhm Tae Woong asks Ji On, “What’s Sae Bom (family dog) doing?” and she lies down on the floor just like the dog, which — for the reason we can’t fathom — brings tears in his eyes and makes his surprised wife question, “Oppa, why are you crying?”
13. Teach math with strawberries
Choo Sung Hoon taught Sarang how to add and subtract with her favorite food, strawberries.
14. Make chocolates
Choo Sung Hoon took Choo Sarang, who has a major sweet tooth, to a chocolate factory where Choo Sarang made chocolates and ate half of them right away…
15. Help make friends
Fathers who have an only child, Choo Sung Hoon and Uhm Tae Woong, help their daughters make friends by asking friends’ and cousins’ children to come play with them. Uhm Tae Woong invited Producer’s Cha Tae Hyun and his children over to his house.
