Song added that they had also been cursed at "solely for being Asian".
The 47-year-old said that he has "never been so angry" and "every curse word that he knew" in response to those who attacked his children.
Despite their experience with racism, Song said that there was a bright side to their time spent living in a foreign country
He said that it was educational for the triplets to live in an environment where no one recognised them.
Now back in South Korea, the actor assured fans that the boys are "adjusting well" and have begun their first year in elementary school, Newsen reported.
