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 !!!

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.

All involves three siblings separated when they were young due to the death of their parent. They met later both have desire to get revenge
Recommended by Caroli Zfn
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.

    I dropped it, then picked it up, then dropped it. Confirmed: it isn't for me. And Baek Jin Hee got on my nerves for some unknown reasons.

    I don't know what others see about Kim Jae Joong, he's just a "meh" to me—face and body—total "Meh".

    Was a pretty good drama, Kim Jae Joong did a really good job acting along with Lee Bum Soo. I don't know why but I can't stand Im Shi Wan, dude just feels creepy. Watch it you might actually enjoy it.

    Could someone please tell me, is there a childhood plotline in the beginning, and if yes, does it last very long? (I prefer dramas where the past is revealed rather little by little, and tend to get annoyed if there is a childhood storyline that takes up like the first 5 or ten episodes...)
    Edit: Finished the drama and luckily, the childhood parts were flashbacks and didn't take too much time from the actual action. :D
    And btw: I loved the drama, and I am GLAD I ignored all the negative comments here.

    At first I watched it because a friend recommanded it to me, but I was skeptical. It's not the kind of storyline I like and it's way too big. I started watching it and tbh it was hard to finish every episode without pressing pause a few times and do something else lol. But I wanted to finish it and see how it was going to end. When I saw that they added episodes I was like "noooooo, it's way too much" but anyway.
    This started to be very interesting towards the end or at least after the first half of the drama but the ending was very good (but sad :/)

    I found this drama boring; it dragged on too long and I had to force myself to watch each episode. 95% chance I'll drop it in an episode or so. The only compliment I can give is that it had a nice start, but disappointingly, it went downhill from there.

    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.
