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.

Two brothers were separated because news reporters slandered their father. So they both want to take revenge. They finally meet each other after 13 years!
Recommended by Sara
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.

    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.

    I can't seem to find the song from the ost that I loved! It's an instrumental song with NO vocal, kind of like trailer music sort of. It has strings and a pleasant melody. I'm searching for Various artists but i can't find it anywhere! Hope anyone can help me! Thanks!

      I've looked through there too with no luck. Literally looked everywhere. It is one of those songs in Dramas that they apparently don't release. Or it's just really really hard to find...

    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)

    --->>> 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 !!! )

      I am telling you, in the last year or so, I have seen the ugliest and most ill-fitting clothes (too tight or too large) on men in dramas ... (from S.Korea, China, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand)....
      It's a virus that has spread all over East Asia (can't tell about other parts of the world, haven't seen them lately)

      :D bad clothing makes a lot of scenes ridiculous, when they are not supposed to be...I was just watching him going to fight in those tight clothes with his eyes bulging out and all the suspense went out the window :D

    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 ...
