If you are a fan of Song Joong Ki and want to learn about his childhood, you can check this out.
OBS’s “Unique Entertainment News” (literal title) returned with the story of Song Joong Ki, who has gone from “pretty boy” to “trusted” actor.
Song Joong Ki was born in Sechon-ri, Dong-myeon, Daejeon, Chungcheongnam-do, in September 1985. An interesting fact about him is that the actor grabbed the microphone at his doljabi (a tradition where the child is placed in front of various items or objects that represent a certain future of the child with respect to his or her career) as if to foretell his future.
When he was young, we lived with a large family of four generations, including his great-grandmother. From this time on, he received a strict family education and formed his character of “not moving a step forward unless he is sure about himself.”
Another notable thing about his past is that he has many pictures where his hair is either braided or tied. This is because his mother, who really wanted a daughter, raised him like a girl. She braided his hair in two pigtails, made him eat strawberry ice cream rather than chocolate, and had him ride a three-wheeler instead of a bicycle. This is why Song Joong Ki was considered a quiet and shy kid then.
It was not until the age of seven when his younger sister was born that he could break away from this lifestyle. Maybe that’s why. He later picked “when his sister was born” as the happiest moment of his life.
