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.)

Before I go(back to reality) I just want to leave some replies to those who have thrown messages my way.

@B.B. and bbm

Glad to share that video with you. It was meant to be a Swing demonstration that turned into something else, the bounce. I still laugh every time I see it.

@bspanda

No, I haven't seen Rough Cut yet. I would love to though. Didn't know it was already available outside Korea. Is it already online?

I'll try not to be too much of a lurker from now on and leave comments from time to time. I tried to join in the open thread discussions but reading the hundred plus comments alone already takes too much time and its so hard to find who left what comment after reading the whole lot. But I promise I will try.

@Samsooki
Your last comment here had me in stitches man! Love reading all your comments in this blog actually. But I refuse to accept 2nd place for my haiku! Let's have JB decide.

See you guys in eight hours time!

@48 tsk tsk tsk - this is where you got it all wrong! You see KJH AND I HAVE the connection - you are the one that is delusional and you THINK you have the connection.

And it's just KJH has not found a way to tell it to you gently, to minimise your hurt, with him being sensitive and all. But it's coming Samsooki!

However I can perhaps put your delusion down to Binniesexuality withdrawal! Don't worry Binnie is coming back soon with 'Friends' ok?

@50 Once again - delusional! Geez Samsooki have you been taking my cold and flu meds? Wink was for ME!

BTW Wasn't it 'Soul Eye Wubbing Ewwww'? LOL - try making a haiku out of that!
(can you enlighten me on what a haiku is? ta!)

(once again apologies to JB and the other readers - but this is mad, but so fun LOL)

Anyway, re: the posters. I totally played the spot-the-difference game. *facepalm*

@ bspanda.

Opps, missed the edit time.
Haiku - a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.

Hope this helps.....join the fun.

I think its good KJH is not in triple. First of all I don't think the women (nevermind the men!) on this blog can take it. If just the mere possibility of KJH being in Triple is causing haikus to flow left and right and all this "mine, mine, mine" behavior what kind of a riot would KJH actually being in the series do to us all? Savages thats what.

Also where would my beloved YKS be in all this (lost in the shuffle like yesterday's cold rice?), nevermind the voice. Just consider yourselves all lucky this happened. I frankly don't think you guys can take the sexiness.

Hey Lee Jung Jae, Spock called and he wants his hair style back.

Thanks for that!
Have to give it a miss (for now), as flu is suddenly shifted gears and absolutely pounding my head (probably cause i should be snoozing not surfing right now! LOL) Hopefully can join in the fun soon.

nycgirl
Nothing wrong with cold rice (YKS) either hehe Variety is spice of life right? Good to see I was not the only one that saw Spock in LJJ's hair!

My only hope is that YKS will have bigger part than how it looks so far. The main reason I'm excited about this drama is YKS and Lee Yunjung combination. I like the poster by the way.

Wha??? Careful, you're headed into dangerous territory... ;)

@ Samsooki

I see you have not learned your lesson! Your egocentrism is worse than my students....hohnnayadegekkun! :P

All right. The right-side of my brain is severely lacking (and I couldn't think of one which incorporated Triple)....but here it goes -

You. Heart of our pride.
Smexy, adorkable, YOU.
Bounce me anytime! ;)

In the photos that look identical, only Lee Hana's and Min Hyo Rin's hands are different -_-

But Triple is looking good, it seems funny and light ^^ (it would be sad if this was a serious sports drama) I wonder how Min Hyo Ri will act (or skate....)

@62 hjkomo -

Sigh. Nycgrl is right. If Kang Ji Hwan stayed in Triple, all y'all heads might explode. LOL. I am reminded of Kim Seo Hyun (played by Park Si Yeon) of My Girl, or Yoon Soo Jin (ably played by Lee Bo Young), or even Yoo Hee-jin (slightly over-played by Jung Ryu Won)... and Hanjaman reminds me of the relentless Mr. Byun (forcefully and thoughtfully played by Uhm Tae Woong) in DGCH... (you guys should all 포기해...)

@64, biscuit,

(Pssssst! I think Yoon Kye Sang's arm is also different in the bottom photo, but I can't say it too loudly because if JB hears that I looked at YKS, then who knows what will happen. Don't tell anyone I looked at YKS!)

This thread definitely made my day :) And the haikus are mad funny! I think nycgirl was right...if KJH was in Triple, there would be even more "MINE, MINE, MINE" going on.

Javabeans, please do not mad with those 'slightly' off topic comments.
These are hilarious and fun!

You, and your awesome commentators gang always make my day.
( and see at this perspective, better have THESE kind of commentators than get comments like : FIRST, SECOND, He's so hot, xxx <3, or other stupid pointless comments, right? ;) )

I <3 Lee Seon-kyun and Lee Hana!! I'll watch it just for them! Also, does anyone know if the woman in the 6th picture (with the huge smile) is the director of Coffee Prince? It looks a lot like her :D

.... I thought samsooki is a guy? O.o I remembered, if correctly, of you mentioning your wife once...

+_+"

That aside, I don't really know the storyline of triple but seeing the action that I like (YKS) I will give it a try!

:) Thanks for the post DB.

I'm looking forward to this for a number of reasons...

Firstly, Yoon Kye-sang... I loved his performances in Who Are you, Crazy For You (he's proven his dramatic prowess here, made me cry buckets) and She is 19. He could move from comedy to drama so smoothly as in Who Are You.

Secondly, the director of Coffee Prince, and

Thirdly, The Voice

And I say Amen! to those who love YKS's smile; even the female lead in Crazy For You acknowledged his captivating smile in her dialogue.

I sure hope javabeans will recap this.

Cheers!

@71 popcorn -

"…. I thought samsooki is a guy? O.o I remembered, if correctly, of you mentioning your wife once…"

I am a guy! :) And binniesexuality is not against nature! And hwanniesexuality is also okay, so long as there is a connection there!

All kidding aside, I am sort of in the midst of my own awakening, as I overdose on Korean dramas and explore the interesting and cool aspects of being a Korean guy, after years and years of being the model Korean-american 2nd gen robot, and being directionless in terms of having suitable archetypes for issues surrounding what it means to be a korean-american (or an asian american) male.

Not too long ago, I watched MNIKSS (my first drama) and I was shocked to see that Binnie was cool and interesting and good looking, not at all what I had thought korean guys would be like. Watching korean actors do their thing in k-dramas has really given me a whole new world to explore, and of course, I have started to develop "attachments" to certain of these actors.

For example, even though I haven't found an opportunity to say it yet, I've stored away Binnie phrases like, "ha ji mal-la-myun... ha ji ma!" ("If I tell you not to do it, then just don't do it!" - MNIKSS Episode 7). LOL. And, finding out that Kang Ji Hwan and I have a spiritual connection was another shock (was it fate?), and that has led to terroritorial battles between confused dramabeans souls who think that KJH belongs to them, when it's clearly not true.

I shudder to think of what will happen once we start to watch Triple. Hopefully, there won't be any connection to be made between me and YKS, and then we can avoid all unnecessary bloodshed on dramabeans.

Wow, that WAS good! Two birds, one stone, all in a haiku. Most impressive.

H.J.Komo is
like Mister Byun of Choon Hyang...

My own mixing bowl of texting slang, korean drama knowledge, korean, and haiku. :)

Hehe. Take that!

Hahah...after all that explanation I still don't understand. lol

Anyway, let me give it a try for haiku. I am not very good but will see.

Korean guys are
on show too good to be true.
In life, I find none.

p.s. I always thought haikus are mainly written about nature...lol

@77, popcorn

You are right, haikus are generally about nature. I was being silly. :)

It is a shame that your experience with Korean guys has been less than great (in my own experience, I have to agree with your haiku as well, in that most (but not all!) kor-american guys that I've met seem to be kind of messed up too, and I am included in that group). I'd like to tell you that we get better with age, but I've not seen it for the most part. There are a lot of reasons (excuses, really) why this is, but this topic is better served on an open thread Friday.
