Lee Bum Soo joins Return of Superman with his family
Good news, Return of Superman fans! I know we're all sad about the impending departure of the Song triplets, but we have a new celebrity family joining the show! Actor Lee Bum Soo (LAST, Prime Minister and I) has confirmed that he will be joining the series with his wife and two children.
Lee Bum Soo and his wife, Lee Yoon Jin, have two children, five-year-old daughter So Eul and two-year-old son Da Eul. When discussing his decision to join the show, the actor explained, "One night I came home late and went to bed, and when I woke up, my son was stroking my face. We can never return to moments like these, the moments as our children are growing up. I don’t want to lose these precious moments."
Awww, isn't that sweet? I love Lee Bum Soo's goofy comedic roles, so I bet he's a fun dad in real life!
Lee Bum Soo met his wife, an interpreter, columnist, and English tutor, when she became his English instructor. The two married in May 2010, and their baby daughter was born in March 2011. They welcomed their son to the family in February 2014. The family begins filming for Return of Superman at the end of January, with their first episodes airing in February.
