Summing up in Five Lines
The gangster in Sabuk, Youngdal (Kim Jaejoong) extorts money here and there to gamble. He doesn’t budge– no matter how much money he loses, nothing can stop him. However, you can feel the depth in his eyes when he looks at Junghee (Baek Jinhee), whom he encounters quite often. On the other hand, detective Dongsoo (Lee Bumsoo) is dying to arrest the villain Go Boktae. His old friend – profiler Shinhye (Oh Yeonsu), who got to know that he has problem in controlling his anger, visits him and tells him that he needs treatment. Once again, Dongsoo exposes unnecessary anger toward Shinhye.
It’s impossible to avoid the comparison between ‘Triangle’ and the previous record-breaking drama of the combo Choi Wankyu-Yoo Cheolyong – ‘All In’, as all the leading actors who have strong presence are placed in a casino background. It’s irrefutably obvious that they paid a lot of attention to the scenes in the casino. As the drama goes on, it seems that the casino will become the main background. Therefore, this drama possibly goes head to head with ‘All In’, the drama that people will naturally think of when talking about Choi Wankyu-Yoo Cheolyong unit.
While the production crew intends to play against ‘All In’, the curtain of ‘Triangle’ has gone up. By destiny, the women started to slowly appear in the rough life of the three brothers. Though that process was painted profoundly, we can’t help point out that the motif is kind of old. Even so, ‘Triangle’ still has its own flavor. The motif is old but there is still room to make it new in the characters.
In the first episode of the drama, Kim Jaejoong, who plays Huh Youngdal, is eye-catching. He puts on the tailor-made suit for this character who has lost direction and lives hopelessly, and added freshness to the drama with his natural acting. I don’t know what shakes his heart but his sharp eyes and the raw madness in it mixed well with Kim Jaejoong’s unique image.
Im Siwan couldn’t show much in the first episode but even in a short time, he gave enough for his appearance to be noticed, and he is one of the potential runners in ‘Triangle’. Of course, the influence from his previous work ’Attorney’ is still big, but he succeeded in leaving an impression that he did better than that.
Lee Bumsoo’s role supports. Even if he’s not overly conspicuous, he still sustains the weight of this drama and might become the key of this drama.
These charming actors make us breath out right from the first episode. In the end, will it be able to surpass ‘All In’?
