The series starts with the murder of a 10-year-old girl in 1984. 15 years later, after the case goes unsolved and passes the statute of limitations, a doctor named Goda Ryoji suddenly quits from his hospital and eventually becomes a detective. In 2008, he meets Sachi, a traveling artist in Paris, and shortly after Goda's return to Japan, he becomes involved in the expired murder case when another detective receives an anonymous phone call. --Tokyograph
Cast & Credits
There is really only one main theme running throughout the entire drama stemming from one main event that happens in the past but it manages to never be boring. I watched Triangle in practically one sitting. I just couldn't tear myself away. Each episode seemed really short even so it was the standard 45 minutes!
I'm so glad I didn't ignore this one. I can't recommend this drama enough. Definitely worth the journey though & completely surprised me.
The OST is seriously amazing too! I listen to it all the time. Great for having on in the background while working.
In some ways this drama has a theme of trying to get over or break away from the past, which I thought was a big impact.
I personally thought the actors portrayed the characters well. Some characters I found dislikeable, but not enough for it to ruin the show for me.
If you like darker themed stories, this could be up your alley.
