Childhood and education

Song was raised alongside his two older sisters in Dalian by their mother, who was working at a local supermarket and their father who was a clerk in a lawyer’s office. Song was six when he fell in love with martial arts, after watching Jet Li perform in the movie “The New Legend of Shaolin”, and his mother agreed to let him live at a Shaolin temple, however, she soon brought him back home, as she believed he wouldn’t be able to keep up with his classes at school. Song was bullied while attending elementary school because he ‘looked old’, which is one of the reasons why he began taking wushu lessons as soon as he enrolled at a high school – after a year of practicing wushu, he began attending Shaolin Tagou Martial Arts School, and today has two silver medals and one gold from wushu tournaments.

He matriculated from the school in 2017, and then chose to focus on his career as an actor rather than to pursue a college degree.
