Triangle releases action-packed posters

Official posters are out for Triangle, MBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama to take over the Empress Ki slot, and I have to say they’re a lot more action-packed than I was expecting based on the description of three brothers torn apart in youth, who grow up on disparate paths and reunite twenty years later as adults.

That drama sounds plenty emotional and dramatic — particularly when you consider that the eldest brother (Lee Beom-soo) became a cop and the middle brother (Jaejoong) became a gangster — but looking at these posters, I’m adjusting my expectations. Specifically, turning the melodrama volume dial upward. That’s not a bad thing; I could use a little aggro angsting for a change of pace.

And this kind of testosteroney guns-n-glaring vibe does fit with the resumés of the producers behind the show, who have a number of big-budget action thrillers under their belts: Star writer Choi Wan-kyu’s work includes IRIS, Swallow the Sun and All In; PD Yoo Chul-yong directed Swallow the Sun, H.I.T., and Poseidon; and PD Choi Jung-kyu co-directed Two Weeks.

Lee Beom-soo plays the eldest brother, Jang Dong-soo, whose description in the poster below reads “Regional investigative unit violent crimes detective with inability to control rage.”

Jaejoong’s poster describes him as Heo Young-dal (he changed his name in adulthood), “Quintessential Gangwon-do gangster and casino trash.” He works as something of a debt collector for the casino, doing whatever necessary to collect.

Youngest brother Im Shi-wan is described as Yoon Yang-ha (he was adopted into a chaebol family), “Typical royal family successor and warm guy.”

Then there’s Baek Jin-hee, enjoying a recent rise in visibility after her run on Empress Ki, and she plays the daughter of a miner who died after suffering black lung disease, leaving only his debts behind. She became the main provider for her younger siblings and grandmother and endured a dark childhood, but managed to come out of it a bright young woman. In her hometown, becoming a casino dealer is the fastest way to gain upward mobility, so that becomes her goal, and she eventually gets caught in a love triangle between the two younger brothers.

Oh Yeon-soo, meanwhile, will be going from enemies to lovers with our hero (she was Lee Beom-soo’s enemy in IRIS 2). She plays a psychiatrist and profiler from an elite background, having studied in England and specialized in delving into criminal minds. In her youth, her father brought home a troubled youth (Lee Beom-soo’s character) whom she felt drawn to, but she couldn’t upset her father’s expectations and married another man.

Triangle premieres next week; Episode 1 airs on May 5.

The promotion has mostly been on Jae Joong, that is true. But he is the one whose name sells, so it make sense. Who wants to see some ajeossi and some boy? Well, I do, but I'm not the majority of viewers.

The official site has more. There is now a new video with Si Wan and also many stills. Today we got the posters and a bunch of videos and stills. A lot of them Si Wan's.

I wish they'd release more on Lee Beom Soo sometime this week, but I also know he's probably the last one anyone wants to market, so I don't expect much.

I want more from him too, but he's not the type the core audience goes for. Well, when there's two young pretty boys around as options. It's sad, but that's marketing reality. As long as the series is well-written and gives all leads the time they deserve, I can handle the focused promotion.

hello orion ^^
I've been following soompi forum too, but too lazy to log in XD
but i'm thank you for keep updating with news and talks (yeah, i read "ALL") you guys r fun haha..

back to topic,

i know JJ's name will sell, but we also get some beomsoo too. while Im siwan like been left out, too little info & stills of the youngest bro. even at some news, the media only tag in JJ & LBS name. if i didn't know, i would think the man leads were only LBS & JJ. as a JJ fan, i'm happy with the amount of attention given to our JJ, but it make me feel bad for ISW.

he's not that nobody to not be included in most of the promotion so far. mostly i saw his pic in the BTS was with JJ.

if the case is he appeared late in the eps, like baek jinhee, then i understand.
i hope that's the case ^^

Ahaha. We're enabling each other over there. Si Wan was the last to start filming, so the delay was expected, but at the moment, with the new material that is out today, he has more stills/scenes and more videos out for him than Lee Beom Soo. So it took them a while, but they are out.

That said, his name does get left out a lot and he is even beyond Baek Jin Hee in the new poster/website background, which isn't really nice. This is called 'Triangle' for a reason, isn't it? I know he's not a huge name and his fanbase maybe not as big, but a lead is a lead. :(

So Si Wan is getting mentioned less, but has more material on him, Lee is mentioned more, but we have less promo stuff out at this moment. I hope to see more from both this week.

This looks so good! Love all three of the guys, especially Lee Beom-soo. I first saw him in IRIS 2, and he completely blew me away. He was just awesome in that.

I love Baek Jin Hee! I think at her young age, she's already a very well rounded actress.

Love the casts and will totally watch it.

Well, they are going to use Jaejoong's name as much as they can. Look at Protect the Boss and Dr. Jin

I hope to goodness this is good, I'm intrigued already and I adore the cast.

I can't speak for Jaejoong, whose acting I've never seen but his acting looks ok in the trailers, I don't think he's a a second Yunho/Taecyeon or anywhere near as bad.

It's pretty simple actually, Jaejoong has consistently improved and expanded his range in acting. Suzy has a long, long way to go.

I don't think so, but the problem is that people are mean to suzy or other idol-actress, but not to the male ones.

lol AS IF.

Let's not try to derail the issue from Suzy's lack of talent to commenters' alleged anti-feminism, because the men get bitched out every bit as hard when they suck - look at any post about Taecyeon o Yunho attempting to 'act' for evidence.

Required fields are marked *

Not really. People can be really mean to the ones who really suck such as Yunho or KHJ in some point.

I like how Jaejoong is always in the center/the focus of all the group pictures even when he's not the main character haha.

The poster with him in front of the mirrors remind me of their Mirotic photoshoot for some reason...

I honestly cannot see Jaejoong in this role, just because now he's so skinny and unintimidating, but I really hope he'll prove me wrong. :/

My anticipation for this drama is nothing but low. I adore Jaejoong but this poster anticipate something that just does not fit. He is a gentleman not a cop.
