I really enjoyed this drama (although the first 4 episodes were iffy for me - but they were necessary to see the character development) -
Story: 3 brothers who don't know they are brothers b/c they were separated a long time ago meet again by fate and go through countless things before finding out they are all related - is the basis of this plot-line.
Cast: Kim Jaejoong as Yeong Dal/Dong Cheol read more - the main of the main cast basically lol - he was my favorite character and the reason I started this drama - his character development was the biggest and most impactful during this drama - I loved his story and all the things he got intertwined with along the way - plus his romance was really sweet and nice to see. Lee Bum Soo as Dong Soo - a detective with a temper - through a turn of events finds certain things out and seeks revenge with the help of Yeong Dal. Siwan as Yang Ha - the little jerk of the show basically - raised by a dirty rich guy with no feelings - you could say he has some psychological issues....Jung Hee the girl Yeong Dal loves and the girl that Yang Ha wants - who does she like and how the love story begins - you'll have to see for yourself - I loved her faithful character :) Shin Hye - probably the smartest out of everyone on this drama - she had a habit of figuring things out before others did.
Music: Extraordinary - I loved it to pieces especially Kim Jaejoong's 2 OST songs (I play them all the time)
Re-watch Value: 10/10 I will most definitely re-watch this drama again - I loved it as much as I loved East of Eden <3
Fav. Quotes at the end: "Death is waiting at the end of greed." "If you want to escape life's darkest tunnel, try to love somebody, because great fortune may be awaiting for you." - Yeong Dal/Dong Cheol.

I was so impressed with this drama, that I finished watching it in less than 3 days. This drama filled me with awe that I decided to write my first review. I've never felt an urge to review any drama before. I always avoid melodrama genre, but this one got me hooked. Firstly, I fell in love with the plot, It's pretty exciting with bitter-sweet moments, you'll always feel like something is read more about to happen. Every episode ends with pure excitement & makes you eagerly wait for next one .

This TV show is real tear jerker. Hats off to Writers, Actors, Director, Music-composer, Editor. I fell in love with the characters, beautifully portrayed by all actors especially the 3 brothers [main leads]. They have done justice to the plot with their great acting skills. I fell in love with director's cinematography & eye for nice shots, I fell in love with background music that correctly fits every scene & moves your heart accordingly so that you can feel the character's emotions well. I loved how they carefully edited every scene and how smoothly & beautifully whole plot unfolds. 26 episodes seem like a lot but I promise you that you wont be bored, In fact you'll wish that this drama never ended.

I gotta say Kim Jae Joong is an wonderful actor, who is HIGHLY underrated... Everyone notices how good looking he is, how great his skin is etc etc etc but honestly I admired his acting skills a lot. He is PURELY TALENTED & GIFTED, of course blessed with great looks as well :) I wish more producers/directors can notice this fact about him being talented, gifted actor & cast him more in upcoming dramas. I wanna watch more of his acting.

Anyone who is contemplating whether to watch this drama or not, Just go for it & give it a shot, I bet you'll fall in love with it & enjoy it as much as I did :)

UPDATE: Kim Jae Joong won "TOP EXCELLENCE ACTOR" Award for his role in Triangle at Korea Drama Awards, 2014. Congratulations JaeJoong !!!

Triangle is about brothers finding each other after years and the most powerful one is a gangster. K2H is about a prince learning to steer through danger and politics. Two very different dramas. In Triangle, the lead turns from a pitiful, poor, and powerless gangster to the most calculating, powerful one. He steers his people through danger and comes out on top. By the middle, there is no one who doesn't feel apprehension when they hear his name. In King2Hearts, the degenerate playboy prince transforms into a smart, respectable, highly admired leader. Also, in both, the leads were called 'trash' in the beginning.

JaeJoong stars in both. Triangle was about him (not so) covertly taking over a city and a business. Spy - he worked for his country. Triangle was better IMO

    All I can say is if it wasn't for Kim Jae Joong really improving his acting chops, I'd have dropped this puppy half way through. I was shocked, since I had watched Misaeng before this in the night/day acting ability of Siwon. He just wasn't very strong in this one, sorry to say. Baek Jin Hee, even if she's a pretty girl, was so monotone in this I had a hard to sympathizing with her character and understanding what was driving these guys to fall all over themselves for her. Her emotions were never too much or too little, it made it so stale. It's the only way I can describe it. She just never really changes, no matter what's going on, throughout this drama. Some folks have their good moments... but overall, I found myself ffwding through a majority of the last half of the show.

    One of the best that I have seen. The OST was great too. JJ as Yeong Dal/ Dong Chul was excellent. He's a very good actor. His walk was attention grabbing and his role was excellently portrayed - not to mention intensely interesting. These three brothers and the actors who played them were wonderful to watch.

    Great drama! :) Although the first few episodes were not that good and boring, it got better by time. It is definitely worth a watch! :D

    Just about every scene where Young Dal cried, I cried along with him ㅠㅠ It's been a while since that's happened with a drama; so I guess that says something about how much Kim Jae Joong has improved as an actor! I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would!

    I can't say that I completely know the story because I dropped it after episode 1. The yelling turns me off. Everyone is yelling, the police brother is violent and the second brother is wild. I like the youngest because he acts cool. But all in all, these guys have attitude problems that's why I immediately dropped it.
    Nonchalant guys like Lee Shin of Heartstrings and Cha Woo Jin of Liar Game are much preferable.

      :-) Yeah, this is not for me. I am looking for dramas similar to Misaeng and Comrades. Please let me know if you know one... or two. :-D

      Hi, I came back here because I was missing Triangle. I just finished Yong Pal and as I saw these comments just now, I was thinking Yong Pal might be something you're looking for. No gangsters.

    Let me just say something for all of the people that have dropped or put Triangle on hold, it definitely gets better with time. Personally, I thought the first few episodes were boring, but they were necessary for the setup. It still may not be your thing, but try to stick with it a little past the first few episodes and see for yourself.

    Just finished watching and all I can say is I loved it!!! I started to watch this because of Kim Jaejoong, because I've read about his character and I thought he was interesting. I don't regeret it. It was really good. I was amazed with Jaejoong's acting, really, so many emotions he has shown. The other actors were great too and the show in general was good.
