Veteran actor Sung Dong Il is well-loved for his role as the “dad” on all three seasons for the Reply drama series. While Reply 1988 saw him with the bubbly Deok Sun (Girls’ Day‘s Hyeri) as a daughter, Reply 1997 gave him Sung Shi Won (Apink‘s Eunji) and Reply 1994, Na Jung (Go Ah Ra).
While the actors have not gathered as a group in quite some time, by a stroke of luck and coincidence, they managed to have a quick reunion on 7 October – in the form of a phone call.
To promote their new drama, Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, Go Ah Ra and Lee Jae Wook had paid a visit to the radio show hosted by none other than Eunji. As they guested on KBS Cool FM‘s Jung Eunji’s Gayo Plaza, the two Reply actresses started talking about both being Sung Dong Il’s daughters.
Putting in a phone call to their “dad”, Sung Dong Il shared his thoughts about having both lovely actresses as his honorary daughters.
During my second family life, I had Go Ah Ra. However, I have not had any daughter that was of any use to me materialistically. But since I’m famous as a dad for having many daughters, I have to be careful about how I act.
— Sung Dong Il
