Grandmaster Song was born in 1945 in Seoul, Korea and spent most of his early life in the South Korean capital. Growing up in the tumultuous post WWII and Korean War era, young Song was confronted with many societal challenges. His grandfathers introduced him to Qi Gong meditation and the healing arts of herbal medicine and acupuncture. While growing up malnourished in post war Korea, it was his grandfather's daily herbal teas that strengthened his body and helped him get through a difficult early childhood. His grandfather was not only a doctor of herbal medicine and teacher of meditation, but also a founder of the Korean Christian Church. He learned many things about herbal medicine and acupuncture from his father and grandfather. He continued his training in the healing arts in Seoul, Korea at Kyung Hee University, and later, in the U.S. at South Baylor University. In the 1970's he continued to develop his skill and ability as a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
