It’s possible, but the time commitment would be crazy (especially since Korean and Japanese are so different from your native language). In any event, you should not start three languages all at once. Why don’t you pick your favorite and work on it for a few months? Then you’ll be in a position to make an informed decision.

12 years old? You're an adolescent; for the purposes of language learning, you're no longer a child. 

Anyway, three languages at once would almost certainly be too much (especially if you're a beginner in all three). I suggest focusing on one. Once you get okay-ish at your chosen language, you can add one more if you like (and if you feel that you can find the time). If you try learning three at once, the most likely outcome is that you'll spend way too little time on each and therefore make no progress worthy of mention in any.

I‘m sure it‘s possible but i wouldn’t try it. As a child there’s no limit on the number of native languages one can acquire, or at least none I’ve ever heard of and I’m sure there’s been no studies on it. I personally would rather master one Foreign Language and know it thoroughly  than just superficially know 3 or more.

I myself learned 2 languages as a child, and taught my children the same way. As a result I am completely bilingual. I would probably teach 2 languages to a child up to the age of about 5. At the age of 12 however I think taking on more than one language would be incredibly difficult, especially as you will have a lot of other schoolwork to complete. I would pick one language and learn to the level you want to be and then move on to the next.

It is possible. But It depends on your age. The younger you are the easier will be. And I think it’s important to start learning them as soon as possible. I did not noticed any difficulties in learning three languages at the same time when I was a child.
