how to raise my children to be a bilingual or even a trilingual?

Hi
I am married for almost three years. I don't have any baby yet but I've been started to consider about raising my child in bilingual or even in trilingual the day I married my Korean husband.

I am half korean and half indonesian. I was born and raised in Indonesia. I lived there until high school. I came to korea to continue my study and to know about my other culture and language from my father's side.
So my mother tongue is Indonesia but I can speak Korean almost native and my English is good as well.

What I want to discuss is I want my children to be able to speak those three languages naturally. Would it be possible if my husband only can speak Korean? My husband and I communicate in Korean. By the way we live in Korea.

It would be wonderful and helpful if you could help me out with this issue with your inspiration or experience.

Thanks
