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 just finished Triangle after stopping it previously. It defeated my expectations. It wasn't a typical drama but you did know what was going to happen. The story line was pretty interesting as I had not seen one like it before in a kdrama. The whole Casino Scene was a pleasant to watch because it's different than taking over a clothing or jewelry business. We kinda lost all that at the end read more but it still kept the same feeling. The cast was really excellent and I cried so much for Baek Jin Hee just to be happy. They picked some good villains too. You will cry when you see this drama. Cry for the actors. The music was spot on and that also made me cry too. I would not rewatch again because It didn't give me enough feels to watch it again. I was just so angry with just every episode something bad happening and even in the last episode. It just irks me to no extent seeing people get away with murder in a kdrama So I would not rewatch for that reason. Overall you should watch it because its like most poor boy gets rich dramas with interesting elements. I really like to learn about new professions in dramas so it's nice to learn a little bit about gambling and that business aspect.

These 2 dramas are not related by having the same story, but for following one of the same concept: detectives and you can also see action and mystery in both. Let's not forget that both dramas are including characters with impressive stories.

they have similar things - casino's, revenge, poor people against a rich guy that killed their dad - a mining town - history - brothers that don't know they are brothers...ectra..

    I have to say that this drama started out really slow and the story for me didn't pick up until about the 7th/8th episode. However after that I was very involved in the progress that all the three brothers made in getting to know about their past and about each other and by the end I was totally conquered by the story. I found it very realistic and harsh in many parts but so beautiful in others as many kinds of different feelings were shown here in a very natural way. Yes the ending was somehow bitter but something like that was to be expected in that kind of world. I really enjoyed some of the OSTs here which were beautiful and everyone's acting was top notch. On the whole I found it a good drama.

    I was about to drop this drama right after watching the first episode.. But couldn't because I'm watching it for Lee bum soo's sake only!!
    I must admit that this drama is mediocre, the characters are extreme, the events are draggy, repetitive and boring.
    The only smart character I find is the doctor, and I somehow grew liking to the second brother. Unbelievable character development for him and memory retrieval XD but he acted it well =p.

    I tend to love stories that involve siblings and such, so I really enjoyed this drama! The drama seemed a bit slow during certain episodes, but other than that I always looked forward to each and every episode :) And I was especially impressed with Jaejoong's acting, he's improved so much and portrayed his character and emotions wonderfully! I'm gonna miss this drama and the three brothers now that it's over;;;

    Does anyone want to comment on Lee Bum-Soo's clothes at the beginning of the show ???
    The skinny cropped pants don't fit his body type at all .... I think people must have complained b/c he stopped wearing them about 1/2 way thru the show .... thank God ! -:)

    How about the grandma-style flowery tops on the men ??? .... and I thought "Heirs" had the ugliest clothes (uhhhmmm....Yup... they still hold that title of ugliest clothes)...lol.

    --->>> So many dramas of this 2013/2014 season have extremely ugly clothes ..... or ill-fitting clothes.... especially on the men !!!! .... ..... I haven't seen this many ugly clothes in dramas since the blue tuxedos and over-sized polka-dot shirts of the Crown Prince in "Goong"/"Princess Hours" (note: Yoon Eun-Hye is always fashionable !!)

    ("You Who came from the Stars" is the exception --- and Gianna Jun's clothes were the Most Elegant of any woman in a drama !!! )

    Go Bok Tae has to be the most pathetic villain ever... Actually, he's not even a villain, he's the victim in all of this.

    Anyways, bad show. What a waste of Lee Bum Soo.

      I felt the real villains were Yang-Ha's father and Pil-Sang (the ex-husband) ...
      To me , Go Bok Tae was just a gangster ...

    I know a good drama when the characters in it act like human beings, not some mindless idiots. This drama provided me with characters that actually THINK and act like normal people would do when faced with dangerous situations. The ending seemed fine as it wasn't cheesy at all. The main antagonists got what they deserved, and it was carried out in an intersting way.

    All in all, I consider it one of the most well thought out dramas so far.

    I've just starting to watch this, with both a seasoned and up and comimg actors respectively, Lee Bum and Kim Jae Joong, I have high expectations. Having three main character's personal stories weave and connects into an greater drama has the makings of an intense possibly twisted drama. I do hope with the roller coaster ride that this promises to be, that it's not without redemtion or foregiveness or hope. The fact that 2 more epi were added indicates how popular it is.

      No, I didn't like it either. But then, I kinda stopped caring towards the end, so . . .
