We know you miss our favorite triplets and we have an update for you! Daehan, Minguk, and Manse recently celebrated their 9th birthday and the boys were all smiles with the gifts they received!
Who wouldn't be this happy when you receive boxes of food?!
Of course, a birthday wouldn't be a birthday without a cake (cakes, in the case of the triplets—they deserve to have one each!)! Also, can we talk about how Minguk looks like a younger version of Parasite actor Choi Woo Shik?
What time is it? Time to adore these grown-up bbs!
The boys can certainly give models a run for their money! I mean, at the age of nine, they have already mastered the art of posing:
Let me just wipe my tears while I look at these before and after photos of the trio.
We missed you so much, Daehan, Minguk, and Manse! Please stay happy and healthy. <3
Even those who don't want to have babies can't deny that these little humans have their moments; maybe that's why the variety show The Return of Superman was created. It's been running since 2013 and has featured the cutest children of Korean celebs.
The most famous kids, though, are hands down the Song triplets: Daehan, Minguk, and Manse. They appeared on the show from 2014 to 2017. Their dad, Song Il Kook starred in the iconic K-drama Jumong.
After they left the show, the entire Song family spent a year in France to be with their mom, who was pursuing further studies. Song Il Gook shared: "We were in Paris, France, and there were a lot of things that I felt while spending 24 hours a day with my wife and kids for a year."
Here's Daehan, Minguk, and Manse's first selfie together, which they took in 2018! Papa Song wrote: "Daehan gathered his brothers and this is the first selfie that the triplets took themselves!"
Ever the fashionistas, they still look cute in matching outfits:
Here are the Song triplets celebrating Mother's day 2019:
Can you believe how big they are now?!
On the first day of 2020, Papa Song posted a photo of the now seven-year-old boys skiing to ring in the new year. Look how much they've grown!
Of course they also had an adorable Christmas greeting, too:
To kick off 2021, Song Il Gook posted a photo of the boys, who will soon be 9 years old on March.
The boys are this big now:
But when they were much younger, they were *this* adorable:
Are you curious about the triplets or miss their RoS days? Here are their cutest moments!
What's cuter than watching them stuff their faces with their favorite food, meat?
The unique personalities of the fraternal triplets are so interesting, too. There’s Manse the free spirit...
Daehan, the chatterbox…
And Minguk, the prince of aegyo.
When one of them gets time alone, they’re almost angelic. But two usually means trouble and three means either total harmony or unstoppable chaos!
Even if they're just sitting comfortably in their triplet stroller, Daehan, Manse, and Minguk keep heads turning. But they’re so much more adorable when they’re given tasks. The trio proved they could successfully shop on their own.
Of course, they're even more precious when they’re in costume!
Their everyday quarrels and mini struggles make each episode super amusing! One time, they went to a traditional school and Minguk couldn’t help but paint the floor instead of his paper. Guess what happened?
But nothing beats their "aww" moments!
...And don't their giggles in this clip just make your heart melt?
