Triple is officially awesome

…and it hasn’t even aired yet!

That’s it. Triple has just shot up — over Song Hye-gyo and Hyun Bin, over the Korean Hana Yori Dango — as my new most anticipated drama. Because on top of casting Lee Seon-kyun, then following with Yoon Kye-sang, they’ve now rounded out their lead trio with…

Kang Ji-hwan!

I don’t know if I could’ve picked a dreamier ideal dream lineup. Sure, there are a few other actors I’d put in my “top picks” bag, but these three are at the top of the list of those still doing dramas.

And lest I sound like a hormonally driven fangirl (which, hey, don’t judge), all three are actually — gasp! — good actors.

They all bring a different kind of energy, which should be interesting to see together. Kang Ji-hwan has done both slapstick and tearjerker — he can be goofy and comically spot-on, but turn on a dime into heart-wrenchingly intense. Lee Seon-kyun has spent much of his recent career playing to type as the reserved, thoughtful introvert. And Yoon Kye-sang can be both outrageous and wonderfully emotive.

Kang Ji-hwan will take on the role of a short-track speed skater (upgrade!), while Yoon Kye-sang and Lee Seon-kyun are ad-agency execs. With the three male stars being so much older than young newbie actress Min Hyo-rin, who barely registers a blip on the radar in comparison, I’m starting to think (hope?) that the tone of Triple won’t skew quite as young (read: green and awkward) as previously feared.

Now we can only wait to see what Coffee Prince producer/director Lee Yoon-jung whips up. For the first time, I look on Triple without dread.

Min Hyo Rin and Kang Ji Hwan, though? Couldn't we have LSG and KJH fall in love instead?

...but then who would Yoon Kye-sang cry over?

(also, if Kang Ji-hwan could sell a romance with Sung Yuri, he can do anything)

"but then who would Yoon Kye-sang cry over? "

Oh I understand now. Yook Kye-sang falls in love with LSG who falls in love with KJH who falls in love with MHR who is in love with Apollo Anton Ohno. This is going to be so much better than the King and the Clown!!

"(also, if Kang Ji-hwan could sell a romance with Sung Yuri, he can do anything)"

I thought Sung Yu Ri was love in Hong Gil Dong. Really broad and sweet and easily the best thing she's ever done.

My only problem with KJH's career is that often ask him to carry the actors and especially his female leads. So, I'd rather have him snog it up with LSG than MHR here.

triple hotties, indeed! and with an amazing pd to boot. given the cast and pd, i'm sure the drama is backed by a great script.
you're right, this is more exciting than the world they live in (though that drama also brags a beautiful cast, some lovely singapore scenery, and a wonderfully seasoned writer). i've been waiting for the pd's next project since she seemed so detail oriented in coffee prince.

i saw KJH's eyes before scrolling down, kind of ruined the surprise. i can't believe a drama with have this many hot/good actors, not since Coffee Prince. i'm so anticipating this. i hope the best sub group WITHS2 will pick this up. KJH hasn't stopped working, Hong Gil Dong, Movie Is A Movie, & now Triple. such a workoholic. is there a chance they could change the lead girl? never heard of her, & she could make or break the drama.

Not to be a downer or anything. Inwardly I'm screming with joy, but with so many goodies to choose from at least one of these guys is going to be left alone and heartbroken, and I love them all so much I don't want any of them to have to suffer. Although secretly I'm rooting just a bit more for YKS. So yeah, one of them can get the girl and the other 2 can ride off together into the sunset. Yay!!
Aaagh!! I can't believe I've let myself become so obsessed with this and I've still got to wait till january.
Well at least i've got 'Supernatural' back again to keep me happy, and 'Love and Marriage' is also bring the squeal factor these days.

oh my goodness. this is absolutely amazing: the three lead actors and the PD! you know, at first i was worried about the lead actress, and to be honest, a little bit about the storyline as well...but i think it must be good if these 4 are all involved. ;D

YESSSS OMG I KNEW IT!

Wooot, somehow I saw this coming, I knew they were going to add someone else that was suuuuperdreamy. I just almost completely devolved into total "alkjadfasdlfjaslfkas" fangirling just now. OMG SO EXCITING!

Haha I so agree with LSG and KJH together, with their acting skills put together I'm pretty sure they could make it work.

With Yoon Kye Sang, Lee Seon Gyun AND Kang Ji Hwan all roped in, and the Coffee Prince PD attached to direct (she must like filling her dramas with delicious hunky men in touchy feely scenes....man lurve galore! :) ), Triple simply cannot fail! Right? *drools~*

agreed...so many hotties in one show is...well...hot! but i'm just bothered by the fact that the leading female is Min Hyo-rin. she's not only young but LOOKS young that i might not be able to get over the whole jailbait feeling.

KJH laughs -- LAUGHS I say! -- at the triple souchou!! Ha! Haha!!

This is kinda interesting timing, because I've been rewatching Be Strong Geum Soon on MBC America. KJH+HHJ is still the best couple ever in daily drama! :D

I think both LSG and KJH (both ex-theatre brats, thus their real acting chops) were in the same production of Rocky Horror Picture Show. So this may be a reunion for them too.

Very very cautious about the new girl, even more this time because... with these 3 guys on screen, I will be really pissed off if she ruins it for me. Not that I dislike new actresses. It's nice to see a fresh face, but when you start her off with the lead... I get nervous. I don't know if she is or isn't a good actress. KJH's ability to make things work will probably soften whatever flaws she has though.

Maybe I'll think hopeful.... Hopefully she'll be a great newcomer.... *crosses fingers*

That's CRAZY WILD! I've been a silent stalker, but I can no longer contain myself. I remember reading about Triple awhile back and thought nothing of it. All of a sudden YKS jumps on board and I was SOLD. Adored him in Who Are You? I'm so glad to see him in another drama. And now, KJH?! I'm just speechless. Is it even possible to have such an awesome male cast? I'm a little worried though. They need to cast more females to accompany these fine men! I don't know about Min Hyo Rin, is she the same girl in F.T. island's mv? She's pretty, but I don't know anything about her acting. I don't want to judge her too early though. I thought Go Ara was just a pretty face in WAY and she proved me wrong. Triple is a perfect name for this drama. Triple hotties! hahaha Anyone know when they are going to start filming and when this drama is going to be airing? Crossing my fingers and holding my breath for this dream team ! Wooohoo ^_^

7.30 in the morning and you give me a very nice story to start the day. It's hard rain in singapore now and i just can't wait watching three of them while i was hiding under my blanket with my husband (oopp.....!!!!). Ok ... I''m older now and just happy that three good and older actors who i admire a lot will act together ... i was sold too.

Oh I know. WHO is Min Hyo Rin and why is she getting to star with The Voice and Ji Hwan?!?

Oh and in other news, the KJH/SJS movie Rough Cut was released 1-2 weeks ago, and it's a hit, turning out a reputed million (this number could be in dispute, though -- the actual ticket sales seem to be about ~800K or so currently) audience.

I totally understand '33 ginnie'; I am in her shoes. Sometimes even with full names, I still can't figure out who he/she is until I see the picture of that person..... ah....this is she/he! Yes, I am a foreigner and very much addicted to Korean dramas/movies. I can only remember those hot leading stars, eg. GY, YEH, etc. So, Javabeans, could you please post a picture of MHR? Thanks. I very much look forward to PD LYJ's new project - Triple; coupled with top male casts .... I am sure the production must be superb!

"@ Belleza - Rocky Horror Picture Show? REALLY? OMG WHO WAS FRANKIE??"

No clue actually. If you look around, you can find YT clips from that production, and when it was performed on (I think) a SBS show. I couldn't make out who KJH was.

BTW, another theatre brat, Oh Man Suk of "King and I" and "Vineyard Man", was part of the same Rocky Horror Show production that brought KJH and LSG. Is Rocky Horror the Illuminati of K-drama?
