Forget Partner, let’s look at Triple

(From top left, going clockwise, they are: Lee Hana, Yoon Kye-sang, Kim Hee, Lee Seon-kyun, Min Hyo-rin, and Lee Jung-jae.)

I don’t have much to add on top of what I’ve already said about Triple, other than that it has new posters out. The one above and the one directly below are almost exactly the same — I thought they were identical, at first — and show the six main characters and give us our first idea of how some will pair off. (Still not sure how lead character Min Hyo-rin will be treated, or how her ice-skating character relates to the ad executives.)

(Based on the order of the cast list, I’m going to guess that Lee Jung-jae takes the lead and Yoon Kye-sang, sigh, takes a backseat.)

Drama premieres on MBC on June 10.

(The last guy is young actor Song Joong-ki, btw. He’s also in Ogamdo.)

Ensemble casts can be tough to deal with, whether it is a movie or a drama. Do you spread out the story lines? How to make everybody happy with the amount of scenes and lines?

And, often times, in large group scenes, it feels like characters are just waiting around in the scene, waiting patiently to say their line, then after they say their line, and they go back to being quiet again. Still, I note Lee Yoon-jung might be the saving grace, as she can skillfully neutralize possible negatives associated with large casts, and we'll probably see inter-woven story lines that move people around in more intimate scenes of 2-3 ppl max.

The workup for Triple has been pretty big. I wonder what kind of pressure the actors are facing, now that they know what they are going up against, and especially for Min Hyo Rin, who has been working so hard to be credible. Sort of wish that the publicity had been more low key, but given Kim Yeon Ah's (김연아) World Championship and world record, there's no backing away now...

That IS one unique poster. Totally has that manga-ish feel to it..

I wonder if Lee Jung Jae's character's funny? I would love to see him work his comedic skills on screen again. The last time I've seen him in a comical role was in Oh Brothers.. and he just blew me away in that movie!

So Sarah, Lee Jung Jae or Yoon Kye Sang? =P

Min Hyo Rin plays Lee Jung Jae's stepsister. The two were orphaned when she was 13 - her mother and his father died in a car accident, I believe. The preview's up too - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i3Y8k-CYrA&feature=channel_page.

That just leaves Samsooki to fight a 1) losing, 2) utterly futile battle against the rest of us for Kang Ji Hwan. ;)

@ hjkomo,

That's it, I've had it! I've been keeping mum about this since I saw the last open thread but you have drawn me out of my lurker status. Let me put it this way. I have never questioned Samsooki's Binniesexuality. I could totally relate to that being also a man. BUT, that's as long he doesn't touch my Kang Ji Hwan! Call it Hwanniesexuality. I have seen Kang Ji Hwan take on different roles, from drama, action and comedy and he always seem to fit the role. I think versatile is the word I'm looking for here. And he's such a funny guy with a confident swagger and oozing charisma. This is one guy you would love to have soju drinks with at those street tent boozers(don't know what they're called in Korean) and have endless stories to share with, or have a singsong together at a noreabang. I bet he'd be such a riot to hang out with. Has anyone seen him show off his dancing skills in Sangsang Plus when they were plugging Capital Scandal? That was so hilarious, the other guys were rolling with laughter!

I will never get jealous and would happily share Kang Ji Hwan with you and the other ladies. But not with another man! So please, do not encourage Samsooki.

@ Samsooki

I forbid you to watch Capital Scandal. I'd allow you Hong Gil Dong but that's it. You hear?

JB's post is something out of Chinatown. Tortured, contradictory and honest.

I'll be rooting for the backseat driver though. This will be the third time I've rooted for the 2nd lead.

@ hanjanman

ROFL!!! :P
Versatile, he certainly is.
And who else could pull off that ajumma pama? (and long before the BOF craze)

Thank you for coming out of lurker status. :D

But let me make things clear:

1) I was not encouraging Samsooki. In fact, I was doing my best to discourage him.
There's no point in him diving into a fight where he'll be ripped to shreds...that's right...SHREDS.

2) @Samsooki - take notes. Now, here's a man who knows how to get what he wants without antagonizing the worst foe imaginable. {insert appropriate Korean idiom here...but I can't think of any at the moment}
Come on, you're married. You should've learned by now who wins these fights.
It's no contest! ;)

Back to topic - Song Joong-ki's yummy. :)

Just could not resist.....Looking forward to Jung Jae, sprinting about again.

I wonder if Jung Il Woo still take the leading role..
Too bad, he gave up his role in Triple for his role in Return of Iljimae..

Jung Jae and Hyo Rin? There will be another ahjussi and young girl pairing..
If it happens, then there is no difference with its previous drama; Cinderella Man..

Now we're discussing Kang Ji Hwan in the Triple thread...lolz... your fault Sarah! :P

Okay, Lee Jung Jae paired up with Min Hyo Rin? Ermm...that's a bit of a mismatch for me. I have nothing against MHR, well except that she's a TOTAL NEWBIE.. but I'm not quite for the step brother falling for step-sister kinda storyline. And he's too old for her.... it's like KSW and Yoona all over again. Okay, it's me being really jealous because she gets to be with my Lee Jung Jaeeee....urhh...<_<

@16 mojadara

Yes, Lee Jung Jae's a great actor. But he's kinda out of the drama scene for quite some time? (Well does Air City count?) He can play serious and comedy without having to try... just like Kang Ji Hwan?

@17 hanjanman

"Has anyone seen him show off his dancing skills in Sangsang Plus when they were plugging Capital Scandal? "

Me me me!! That totally got me rolling on the floor man. I rewatched it like SO SO MANY TIMES!

I totally thought he was gonna do the signature swing he did in CS, but I never never expected to see him create his own "BOUNCING" dance...lolz..

And why the heck is nobody talking about "The Voice"?

I'm waiting "Triple" because of... Yoon Kye-sang. I love his smile that make me feel natural and comfortable. I have been waiting his new project since "Who are you?". But until now, I have no lots of info. about characters. I can only see the clear couple Kim Hee, Lee Seon-kyun, but how about Lee Hana, Yoon Kye-sang, Min Hyo-rin, and Lee Jung-jae? I have no doubt about Lee Jung-jae's acting comedy, but I think his face is a bit old to pair with Min Hyo-rin (although he's "just" 10-year older than Min Hyo-rin. hehe). So the rest of them are Lee Hana, Yoon Kye-sang and Lee Jung-jae. I don't want to see the triangle love because I don't want to see my love "Kye-sang" to suffer misery on screen.
I think MBC tries to keep the script in secret to attract the audiences.

i feel like you guys are all mistaken and we really really got off on the wrong foot.

Let me start over.

First, Kang Ji Hwan and I have a connection. I felt it when I was watching Hong Gil Dong, ep 4, and I was like, wow, Hong Gil Dong and I have a connection. It was destiny, it was oon-myung, and I had no idea it was going to happen. As we all know, you cannot fight oon-myung.

Second, there is no fight to be had here, since Kang Ji Hwan and I have a connection. But in the interest of fair play (ala My Love Patzzi, et al.) we should just let JB choose, since JB has clearly chosen YKS and not KJW.

My proposal is that we should all write a nerdy haiku about KJW and then let JB decide the winner, making note that this is still a Triple thread, not a KJW thread. My nerdy haiku entry:

Kang Ji Hwan (mine!), was
Ensemble casting why you
Drop'd out of Triple?

*clap* *applause* *woot* Thank you, no you are too kind. I am not really a poet, but thank you. My stable of guys now include Binnie and Kang Ji Hwan. You guys can all look but don't touch.

Wheeee what a delightful poster! So so cute! With so many cuties too! Can't wait for Triple!!!

Only thing is - why does Lee Jung Jae have a 'Spock-ish' haircut? While Spock was very smouldering smexy in latest 'Star Trek' - why oh why have this cut on Lee Jung Jae? It's not flattering in the stills. (I'll still watch him of course!) But it's like LJJ and his stylist both nodded off while stylist was cutting it. Regardless LJJ is still hot hot hot.

Ok am trying to keep my promise from last open thread to keep on topic in a thread......but sorry Javabeans have to break it on mention of Kang Ji Hwan (am sure you understand right?) Perhaps we should have an open thread just on KJK? hehehe

@11 et al hjkomo
Totally agree - Samsooki could/would not win against KJH lionesses! It would get very ugly, very quickly. (Not that I want Samsooki hurt. Hell no! Samsooki has great taste to love of Binnie, appreciates Hwannie and his comments in this blogs are classics for crying out loud! How about we convince him to share/play nice in re: KJH?)

Ajumma pama + sunnies in a fusion sageuk. Only Kang Ji Hwan could pull it off.

@ hanjanman
Glad you are no longer a lurker! Wow you are willing to share KJH!? Nice! KJH really is versatile, smexy and adorkable! He seems to enjoy himself, while coming off sometimes as being slightly shy? Whatever it is - I'ld hang out with him anytime anyplace :p Have you seen him in Rough Cut with So Ji Sub? Very nice. Now waiting for Civil Servant #7.

And be still my fangirly heart - thanks for sharing the Bounce Dance. So adorkable - reminds me to check out the Lotte CF again...for the zillionth time.

Honestly Hwanniesexuality and Binniesexuality can co-exisit! Different yes, yet both supernova hot!

@ 34 c_gunawan541
Triple seems to stand for 'Men Men Men' Makes one think 'F4 who?' hehe

@ 41 B.B
Thanks - what a riot!
What is the song that KJK attempts to sing? Is it the song he sang on the Fireworks OST or something else?

(Honestly this blog is more effective than all the cold/flu pills I've been popping today. Feel much better already! Thanks Dramabeans gang!)

Didn't I just say that you keep off Kang Ji Hwan??? Why couldn't you just be a one man, well, man and stick to Hyun Bin? However, in the spirit of fair play, here is my haiku:

Lee Jung Jae may take
Your place in Triple but not
My heart, Ji Hwan ssi.

By the way, your oonmyung claim is dubious. He sent me a sign(a wink) at the Lotte duty free mv.

But KJH and I have a connection! Doesn't this TOTALLY remind you of the k-drama mitchin girls (crazy girls) who will not let go their man even though KJH and I have a connection? I can name like a half-dozen dramas where the mitchin girls did not let go even though their "man" had a connection with someone else. It's not love!

It's like you guys didn't learn a thing by watching k-dramas. The crazy girls never win in the end!

@46 hanjanman

Wow..... great haiku, Hanjanman! It's like you captured the essence of your futile and unrequited love for KJH that is the backbone of most k-dramas.

*applause*. In all sincerity, that should be good enough for tied for 2nd place in the KJH contest, which earns you a free cellphone voicemail message brought to you by my Kang Ji Hwan. :)

@47, B.B.

I had no idea we had so many poets amongst us!

Your poem has a lot of depth and pathos... I feel almost sad (for you). I think you have the essence of what it means to be without Kang Ji Hwan, which is good foreshadowing because Kang Ji Hwan will soon be mine after I finish Hong Gil Dong and Capital Scandal.
