SONG IL KOOK is noted not only for his good looks and acting abilities in the Korean drama scene, but he also brings a distinguished family history.  He is the grandson of Kim Du-han, a well-known right wing politician, and the great grandson of General Kim Jwa-jin, a famous Korean Independence Movement leader.  His mother Kim Eul Dong is a talented actress, recently rejuvenating her career with Mapado (2005) and Golden Era of Daughter-in-Law (KBS, 2007).

Song Il Kook graduated from the Cheongju  University, majoring in Performing Arts, although he admits that he was more interested in art and design at the time.  His started  acting in Korean dramas in 1998 at the age of 27, and was considered a “late bloomer.”  He played many  small roles, populating daily and morning dramas, New Year's specials through the early 2000s.  His first significant role was in the action drama Bodyguard (KBS, 2003), playing a slightly off-kilter villain. Song's breakthrough, however, came from two roles in particular: Jang Soo in the weekend drama Terms of Endearment (KBS, 2004), and his impressive turn as Yeom Jang in Emperor of the Sea (KBS, 2005). In those two dramas, Song showed both sides of the acting spectrum: the charming everyday man and the most charismatic villain in the last few years.

Song attained mega star status when he was cast in Jumong (MBC, 2006), which brought him the prestigious Daesang Award in 2006. Jumong is one of the most successful Korean TV dramas of all time, capturing an average of 40% viewership, and staying on the number one chart for 40 consecutive weeks. Jumong continues to this day to be popular all over the world, in countries like the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, China, Iran, Turkey, and Iraq.  Jumong’s legacy was extended to the 2009 drama Kingdom of the Wind, where Song played Muhyul, grandson of Jumong.  Kingdom of the Wind was entered as a foreign in the 2009 International Film Festival.   He also won the KBS Best Actor 2009 award for this role.

Song typically takes on physically challenging roles that display his outstanding skills in sword-fighting, archery, martial arts and horsemanship.   Additionally, his talent as a sketch artist was captured in his roles as Yeom Jang  (Emperor of the Sea) and Muhyul (Kingdom of the Winds).
He is a vice-president of the Korean Triathlon Confederation and participated in the 2008 Seoul International Triathlon, 2009 and 2010. In April 2008, Song carried the Olympic torch through Seoul.  

Besides acting, Song has modeled professionally, both on the runway and in print, and won the 2009 Asian Model Award.

On March 15, 2008, Song married a Busan High Court Judge (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.  Because of her sensitive position as a legal counsel, she remains out of the media spotlight.

In 2009, the State of Hawaii honored him by designating March 21 as Song Il Kook day when he headlined 4803023242_5998626110_o.jpg a fan meeting in Honolulu.  An exclusive hibiscus flower, created by a fan, was named, GeNtLe Song 4743053813_6be704690e_o.jpg
, in his honor.  

As a result of his strong fan support in Hawaii, he insisted that the first episode of his 2010 drama, A Man Called God, be filmed in Hawaii.  Dramatic action scenes shot against the island’s natural beauty had never before been seen in Korean dramas.  In addition, Song prepared for his role as Michael King in this drama for 8 months by physically working out and losing over 30 lbs.  His new look was a stunning change from Jumong and Muhyul.

He is currently playing the dual lead roles in a stage play “I am You” in Seoul from July 27 – August 22, 2010.  It is the first stage play he has ever done, and it was especially challenging because he plays the role of a historic hero, Ahn Joong Geun, and his son, Ahn Joong Saeng, whose life is miserable for being kept in the shadow of his heroic father. His dedication and hard work is being rewarded with numerous positive reviews, sold-out shows, and standing ovations.  Song Il Kook has said his ambition is to expand his experiences in theater by taking on a variety of roles, the more difficult the better.  He especially values working and learning from other experiences thespians.  In his personal life, he has said he wants to be a good father, good husband, and strive to be a man true to his words.

distress’, sexy queen Son Ye Jin will demonstrate how best to do this.

The second step, ‘never put your real feeling and

emotion’ into a courtship to protect yourself,

Shin Ming Joon teaches the viewer how to stay cool and do nothing.

The third step, ‘beauty comes from the eyes

of the beholder’, let’s see how this couple use

their brains and battle to capture each other’s heart but eventually fall in love with each other.

SIK's MV I have so far seen is for Jo Eun's Sad Love Story (조은 - 슬픈 연가). He starred with Han Go Eun in it. Both the song and the MV are very good... Jo Eun's mellow voice, the song's sad melody, plus the MV's story and casts are just great!!!

The other one is for the drama Hae Shin (해신) or Emperor of the Sea's OST. The song's title is Gi Do, by Lee Hyun Sub (기도 - 이현섭). The MV consists of Yeom Moon (SIK) and Jung Hwa (Soo Ae) scenes together in the drama. Again, this song is beautifully made, the lyrics can really tell Yeom Moon's unrequited love for Jung Hwa.
