Triangle: Episode 15

It’s really Young-dal’s hour to shine in this episode after connecting the dots to the past, learning how that affects his present, and knowing what he must do to prepare for the future. Something must be said for a hero whose emotions and thoughts are laid out in front of him like an open hand ’cause this is one guy who isn’t going to bluff at the game of life anymore.

His rawest moments are the ones that tug our heartstrings in the best kind of way, and I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling uneasy in the face of the biggest gamble he’s about to make in his life. But you know what they say: Go big or go home.

EPISODE 15 RECAP

On the way to the hospital, Young-dal reflects upon the memories discovered at the orphanage, shown in a lengthy retread of the previous episode. The biggest truth lingering in his mind is of course, that Dong-soo is truly his hyung. Once he and Shin-hye arrive, they learn that Dong-soo is in surgery after being stabbed. His attacker is still at large.

Meanwhile, Soo-chang meets up with the Scarred Man by the river and strangles him until he goes limp, though Chairman Go orders him to make sure that he finishes the job.

As Young-dal waits with the others outside the operating room, hoping for good news, he retraces all of his memories with Dong-soo, from their first encounter to being saved from trouble to when Dong-soo said they were family now to when he had to beat Dong-soo to finally when he was told that his dream was too pure in seeking revenge.

Recalling those memories are painful, but it’s even more difficult for Young-dal to see Dong-soo being wheeled out of surgery and told that his chances for recovery are slim because of the excessive bleeding.

Watching his unconscious big brother get taken away again, Young-dal lets the tears come.

He also must’ve stayed overnight at the hospital because Jung-hee doesn’t find him at home the following morning. She hasn’t made a decision about the Seoul job offer yet, and she’s told by Grandma to decide on whatever makes her happy.

Sure enough, Young-dal diligently stands vigil by Dong-soo’s bedside. He asks Shin-hye why Dong-soo still hasn’t woken up yet. Dong-soo lost a lot of blood from the attack and required an intensive blood transfusion, but his body is rejecting the new fluids.

It’s heartbreaking how Young-dal softly asks what happens now, and his eyes well up with new tears to hear that Dong-soo is in critical condition because of his severe blood clots and may never wake from his comatose state.

“But he doesn’t know who I am,” Young-dal says, breathlessly. “He doesn’t know that Heo Young-dal is Dong-chul.” Leaning over the bed, Young-dal nearly breaks down again, urging Dong-soo to wake up because he has something important to tell him.

Sitting back down, Young-dal asks why his hyung took off without him and their baby brother. Plus, he hasn’t even gotten the chance to apologize to him for not being able to protect little Dong-woo.

“Please…” he begs, tears streaming down his cheeks. “Please open your eyes. I’m begging you. Open your eyes!”

Manager Bae and his fellow manager gripe about how the unknown new exec due to come in next week will mean another boss to tiptoe around. Jung-hee briefly interrupts their conversation to hand in her resignation letter. Oh, so you will take the new job?

Her boss isn’t happy about it, but her surprise is nothing compared to Yang-ha, who doesn’t take the news well. When Jung-hee doesn’t answer his call (and from the looks of it, she’d been expecting it), he marches down to the dealers himself, demanding an audience.

Even with all eyes on them, Jung-hee firmly states that she isn’t in the mood to chat and walks out, and Yang-ha follows after her. Hyun-mi (who decided to stay for a little while longer to get her bonus) puts the annoying sunbae trio’s sneers to rest, noting that they don’t even have the guts to gossip about Yang-ha to his face.

Yang-ha and Jung-hee resume their conversation outside, where he asks if he’s the reason why she quit her job here. How I wish I could tell him not everything is about him, but what can ya do.

Having had enough of Yang-ha’s own pity party, Jung-hee clearly asserts that her decision to leave has nothing to do with him and she’s seeking new and better opportunities. He says that she can have the same here if she so chooses it, but she says that’s his own smugness talking—who is he to call decisions in her life?

“Because you frustrate me and I feel bad for you!” Yang-ha declares. He can’t stand the idea that Jung-hee has rejected him for an unsuitable match for her like Young-dal. He’d be willing to concede his feelings if Young-dal was someone who was respectable enough for him to acknowledge as a man who was truly capable of making Jung-hee happy, but that’s not the case.

He can see how Jung-hee is getting bogged down by the likes of Young-dal and can’t understand why she’s obsessing over him. I’d say you’d know a thing or two about obsession too, Yang-ha, but continue.

However Jung-hee won’t stand to hear a decent and kind man like Young-dal being spoken of like that, especially coming from someone like Yang-ha who wants for nothing in this world. Young-dal is all alone in this world, and she needs to be by his side.

With that, she turns away, but Yang-ha whips her back around to ask, “Do I look like I have everything I could ever want in this world? Do I really looks like I lack nothing? I… I don’t even know what my birth parents look like. I was adopted when I was an infant.”

He was raised as an heir to a company, not a son in a family. Even if he was given the finest education available, there was no one who showed him affection. After he found out that he was adopted, he was gripped with fear of abandonment and relied on pills to treat his depression and anxiety.

The reason why he liked Jung-hee was because he felt she was someone he could divulge his innermost fears and secrets to, someone who could cast him a warm glance or touch. His eyes filling up with tears, he entreats, “Please don’t turn away from me.”

Judging from Jung-hee’s expression, his words appear to tug at her heartstrings once more… and just around the corner, we see that the female manager has overheard the entire conversation and relays the info to Director Hyun, who smirks to hear it.

Director Hyun takes that juicy secret about Yang-ha’s lovelife straight to Chairman Yoon, who’s told that Jung-hee’s late father was one of the leading mining protesters alongside Daddy Jang.

Young-dal finally sees the barrage of missed calls from Jung-hee and calls her back, to her great relief. He says he’s still in Seoul and has unfinished business to attend to, which she’s understanding of. She says she misses him and hopes he’ll come back home soon (aw). He replies that he will (double aw).

The detectives have finally gotten a visual and identity on the Scarred Man, who has logical motive to attack Dong-soo, aka the detective who put him behind bars twice before. But what’s more unnerving is that he works for Chairman Go, which has Shin-hye wondering whether Chairman Go had ordered the attack.

Young-dal lets this information sink in, and then walks away with an expression that suggests he intends to take matters into his own hands. So he doesn’t get to hear the rest of Shin-hye’s plan to arrest Chairman Go in order to squeeze information out of him, since she’s apparently a better detective(ish) than psychiatrist.

Young-dal heads back to Dong-soo’s bedside, however, as he recalls the names of their mutual enemies, and it’s like you can see the dull look in his eyes sharpen as the rage slowly builds up within him. He calls up Boss Min for her help to get him an audience with Chairman Go.

Speaking of whom, Chairman Go is incensed that Dong-soo is mostly dead, not all dead. He picks up Boss Min’s call, and she throws her weight around using her gangster husband’s name. Surely Chairman Go wouldn’t refuse listening to him, right?

It does the trick and Chairman Go waits alone that evening, impatient. He’s rather intrigued to see Young-dal walk in instead, though it isn’t long before Young-dal wipes that smug smile off of his face by telling him to shut it. In banmal. Oh snap.

Young-dal is in no mood to pander to Chairman Go and walks right up to him and cuts to the chase: “I’m no longer Heo Young-dal to you. My name is Jang Dong-chul.”

Daddy Jang was his father and Dong-soo is his hyung, and he knows that Chairman Go killed one and tried to kill the other. Chairman Go hears this as crazy talk and denies it, and Young-dal hollers back, “Shut up, you son of a bitch!”

“Don’t call me Heo Young-dal,” Young-dal bites back, grabbing the chairman by the lapels. “Heo Young-dal was just a son of a bitch who did everything he could to earn the approval from bastards like yourself. From now on, to you, I’m Jang Jong-kook’s son, Jang Dong-chul. Jang Dong-soo’s brother, Jang Dong-chul!”

Chairman Go breaks a bottle over Young-dal’s head in retaliation, and that’s met by Young-dal’s right hook. Then Young-dal proceeds to hurl the older man to the ground and kicks him before hollering at him to get up again.

Chairman Go, however, continues to deny it and takes all of Young-dal’s punches. And it looks like Young-dal doesn’t intend to quit until he’s left punching a corpse, but that’s when the detectives come rushing in with Shin-hye to stop him.

Even while he’s forcibly held back, Young-dal hollers his death threats at Chairman Go. Shin-hye gets her bit of vengeance with a slap and arrests Chairman Go for attempted murder. Wait, does she have the authority to do that? She’s a doctor (sort of) not a cop. Orrr is she?

Back at the underground casino, Boss Yang can’t stand to see another suitor flirtin’ with his woman, unaware of how powerful a gangster Manbong is. He tries to impress her with a hefty diamond ring, which Manbong takes to slip on her finger himself.

Shin-hye leads the interrogation against Chairman Go and challenges him on his statement that his lips are completely sealed no matter what the cops do against him. Once the cameras are turned off, Detective Tak lets Chairman Go have it, punching and kicking the man to the ground.

Picking Chairman Go up off the ground again, Detective Tak swears that he won’t regret it if he loses his job because of this, because he won’t stop until Chairman Go is snivelling under his feet.

Jun-ho sneaks into Yang-ha’s office to copy Daejung files off of Yang-ha’s laptop. He hands them over to Jailbreak, who reassures him that the new director coming in has his back.

Chairman Yoon is updated on Chairman Go’s arrest and Dong-soo’s hospitalization and calls Yang-ha to come see him in Seoul. Jung-hee doesn’t show up to work again, but runs into Jang-soo and Jailbreak, who plan to go to Seoul to check in on their friend.

Young-dal asks Elder Ahn and Boss Min to postpone their infiltration into Daejung Casino, given recent events. They agree. He heads back to the hospital where he’s met by his friends and Jung-hee, and the two chat outside.

She asks who the comatose man is, whom Young-dal identifies as his long-lost hyung. However, his hyung has yet to learn that they’re brothers and he may never know if he doesn’t wake.

Young-dal is upfront about how he might not be able to uphold his promise to Jung-hee in living a more respectable life without gambling his life away. Now that he knows who he truly is, how his father died, and seeing his brother like this, he lacks the confidence to hold to those words.

He shares how he used to be a street beggar as a boy, collecting scraps at the train station and being beaten up by the pimps who stole his money. He went hungry every day, but the fear that no one in the world either loved or protected him left him in constant fear and uncertainty that was even harder for him to endure.

Young-dal: “In order to be rid of that uneasiness, I became more and more like the crazy bastard that I am today. Not caring whether people called me a thug or trash, becoming a brazen bastard who knew no sense of shame, everything I did was a means to try and erase the constant uncertainty I had.”

Now he knows who were the ones who made his life a living hell and just thinking about it drives him crazy. Jung-hee tells him not to ruin his life in the present trying to fix the past, and encourages him to imagine their future together.

That’s something Young-dal can’t afford to do anymore: “There’s no way I can forgive those bastards for what they’ve done.”

As Shin-hye sits by Dong-soo’s bedside, she thinks back to Chairman Go’s beating interrogation, which she finally put a stop to in order to get some answers.

After confirming that the Scarred Man works for him, she’d been unable to get Chairman Go to admit to calling the hit. If the cops are that curious, they can ask the Scarred Man himself, but it’s unlikely that they’ll ever be able to find him.

Manbong is delighted to hear that Chairman Go’s absence possibly gives him the opportunity to take Chungjin Group for himself. At the same time, Soo-chang is sent to deliver Chairman Yoon a message: their earlier conversation ordering the hit on Dong-soo.

Chairman Yoon is hardly fazed by the threat that he take care of the Dong-soo problem himself, lest his name be dragged into the attempted murder investigation. Instead, he tells Soo-chang to parrot back that if Chairman Go will be digging his own grave if he tries.

Yang-ha tenses in surprise to learn that his father already knows about all about Jung-hee, including her family history, lack of education and work experience. At his father’s (quiet but stern) disapproval, Yang-ha says Jung-hee is someone he cares for and that’s the only thing that matters to him.

Chairman Yoon lets out a deep sigh before reminding Yang-ha that he is the future heir to Daejung before he is his son. As such, if there’s anything that stands in the way of his company’s future, Chairman Yoon won’t hesitate to be rid of it. And if Yang-ha can’t accept that, then he’ll be forced to kick him out as well. Sheesh, no wonder Yang-ha’s suffered from fear of abandonment for years.

They’re interrupted just then by the arrival of their guests, and wait a minute—that’s Jiyeon (T-ARA). Apparently she’s a family friend whom he hasn’t seen in a couple of years. I’m not quite sure, but it sounds like they’ve sorta-not-really been dating, and she’s determined to change Yang-ha’s mind about her.

Ah, so Young-dal will be taking Dong-soo’s place as the man Elder Ahn intends to place in Daejung. Oof, this ought to go over well. He and Elder Ahn head inside and Jung-hee spots him wearing a curious expression.

Chairman Yoon and the rest of the Daejung executives wait patiently until the doors finally open… and Yang-ha’s eyes widen to see Young-dal enter the boardroom.

 
COMMENTS

Ooh, it is on. When it came to bringing down the baddies in this show, I was prepared for either Dong-soo or Young-dal to be the inside man working at Daejung Casino. So when Dong-soo was rendered comatose, it was natural that Young-dal would be the one to fill his shoes. At least it gives Lee Beom-soo some time to rest while it looks like we’re in live-shoot territory now. How else would we explain allllllll the lengthy flashbacks in this hour?

And yet, I didn’t want Young-dal to step in as a substitute to this plan out of mere obligation, but I wanted him to make a decision and also hope that we’d hopefully see him make a choice. We did, and in short, it was a glorious sight.

His entrance also evens the playing field between the ongoing battle between him and Yang-ha, now that they’ll presumably be sharing similar levels of authority in the workplace. Up to this point, Young-dal did feel like the underdog in an uphill fight against former gangsters and company execs who threw him into prison at will, but I’m excited to see how our once-aimless hero will take this battle to the next level.

I must admit that my heart stopped for a moment while watching Young-dal shed his previous identity and way of life in Chairman Go’s face, and his declaration that he is Jang Dong-chul honestly sent a chill down my spine. (For continuity’s sake or until Young-dal fully identifies as Dong-chul to himself and others around him, we’ll stick with Young-dal.) For him, his appetite for vengeance is fueled by the truth he now knows, to fight for himself and his family and the tragic lives they led because of two corrupt chairmans.

And while I adore seeing Young-dal and Jung-hee together to pieces, I also appreciate Young-dal’s straightforwardness and honesty with her as to why he won’t be able to keep the promise he made to her. In spite of the dangers of going forward while being fixated on the past, there’s no one else who will fight this battle for him and he can’t live aimlessly in this world anymore, not when he has a duty to protect the only family member he’s found again (so far).

So as we press forward, it seems like we’ll be saying goodbye to the lovable Sabuk boy next door who once had such innocent dreams to settle down. I know, it breaks my heart, too. For what it’s worth, I can take comfort in journeying with Young-dal as he abandons his old lifestyle and the lamentable things that came with it, and then take action by stepping into a corporate battlefield in a fight that involves more than the affections of his heart. Don’t you wish Yang-ha could learn a thing or two about that?

Triangle just gets better each week!
I'm surprised with how much I'm loving this show now. I found myself rooting for Young-dal a lot, he's such a sincere character.
Can't wait for the day that Dong-soo wake up so that we can have the brothers' reunion.
Just hoping that they won't give us a crappy ending (like how many of the other dramas are nowadays. sigh)

It is hard to believe that I used to like Big Man and Doctor Stranger more than this show. Those two shows turned sour pretty fast, while this one just keeps getting better. And Jaejoon has been consistently good, as well as the rest of the cast. I'm excited for next week.

I hope Yang Ha doesn't try to Kill Young Dal before the reunion.

Also, I hope they keep the realistic reactions from the characters. Yang Ha wouldn't be one to cry and embrace his brothers with love... he hates Young Dal and Dong Soo right now.

BTW, imagine when he finds out that the murder both, GBT and Chairman Yoo, are responsible for is not other than his father

You know what? I hope he doesn't try to kill himself

Exactly what I think. I can't see him happily run to hug Youngdal nor Dongsoo. Neither can I see his way out of this harsh reality of being raised by this dad's murderer not to mention how he stuff his own bio bro in the prison for a girl. If I were him, it'd be too much to handle.

Btw Youngdal crying holding on to the big bro's hand is so heart clenching. Jaejoong's acting is just right, not too much or too less for the scene. It just seemed so real to me. I believe this drama does deserve higher rating.

Why do I get the feeling that when the two younger brothers find out they are related, it's going to be a sad ending--one of them will have to sacrifice himself to save the other, no?

This just doesn't feel like one of those shows that will have a HEA for our three brothers and their (two) girls!

All the heartbreaking scenes are coming now that the truths are slowly coming to light: Youngdal's cries for his new found brother, his outburst in front of the culprit of his family's disgrace.... :( Poor boy.
In the other side, while I know from where Yangha's insecurities come from, I can't really feel sympathetic towards his 'pain' in front of Junhee's rejection, mostly because he isn't heartbroken at all. He is just acting like a grown spoiled brat.

Anyway, I liked the NEW things we saw in this episode. Can't wait for more.

I feel bad for Yang-ha seeing how he is treated, but he really needs to learn that there is a thing called just being friends when itcomes to women. How many times does Jung-hee have to say NO before he wears her down or gets the message? I was glad when she defended Young-dal in front of him. And I do feel bad for how he's going to feel in the future.

Yeah I agree. He and Young Dal both see in her something that is different from the lives they know, where women never say no to them. Difference is that Young-dal genuinely seems to respect her more as a person, while Yang-ha sees her more like a possession.
And she'd rather go for the trashy gangster (which is what the rest of the world calls him) who respects her than the suave chaebol who treats her like she's his to make decisions about. And this is after he admits he knows his feelings are one-sided.

I think this is my favourite episode so far - Triangle fighting! I was not expecting Dong-soo to be down for the whole episode, but it is really Young-dal's episode to carry, and he is more than up to the task. Whether it's the bedside breakdown that has him looking like a lost little boy *sniffles* or the wildness in his eyes when he goes after Chairman Skunk, or his determination to take down the people who destroyed his family even if it costs him his relationship with the one person who inspired him to live a better life.
I am sad that he broke up with Jung-hee to do it, because they were so nice together, but good that there is no noble idiocy here - he's honest with her about why, just like she pretty much lets him know she cares for him no matter what. Yang-ha may have become a friend, and is definitely appealing to her sympathies, but so far she was always clear in her own head that it was friendship, not romance, even whenYoung-dal rejected her initially in jail. Hope that does not change...

even the supporting characters aren't bad this ep. Boss Min rocks and I like Jang Madame's sass, and even Shin-hye's coldness during the interrogation was good.

i don't think the boring-ness of this drama should be blamed on the actors. well we know BeomSoo is a great actor. at first, i had doubt on Jaejoong's acting skill and judging from Siwan's past project, I assume he's getting better. but as this drama goes on, I finally admit Jaejoong has improved A LOT!! yay! *clapclap*

what will be yang ha's reaction when he learn his enemy all this while is his own brothers.

Thank you for the recaps. ^^

Dong-soo is indeed in a coma, but at least the writer attempts to explain why. Congrats LBS on the much needed rest. (Live-filming, what live-filming, I just snooze through it.)

I don't hate Yangha yet, I guess I'm still reminded of the utterly cute baby Dongwoo on little Dongchul's back. The little pumpkin could have grown up to be all delightful and charming to the audience of Triangle, had a kind parent adopted him. It doesn't take a Shinhye (surely) to know how much an uncaring and cold blooded family can damage their adopted child-to-be-heir. So his plead to Junghee makes sense to me, though doesn't make my heart ache, and I blame it on the lack of a back story. The last scene of Siwan's widened eyes is a bit overacted though.

Youngdal and Dongsoo share more genetic codes than they're aware of. I totally believe it's their DNA that commands them to announce war upon their enemies with utmost honesty, whether it's about their scheme (Dongsoo, previously) or their identity (Dongchul, now).

“But he doesn’t know who I am” - teary Youngdal
I like this small moment where Youngdal sounds like a confused little kid next to Dongsoo. He just finds his family, and Show just has to make his family unconscious for trembling man-pain effect!!! Darn Show!!!

Youngdal's matured a lot since the imprisonment, but this episode shows him sheds his self-doubt and self-pity as he postpones the romance and rises to take charge of the revenge. Junghee doesn't like it, but we do, especially when manly Youngdal sweeps his bang back and shows that forehead. The Boss is in the House. Now if only someone is willing to show our Boss how to interpret graphs and read reports. I now I very am.

I can't totally hate Yang-ha either. Partly because of his poor baby self in flashback, and partly because Siwan makes him somewhat easy to feel bad for even when he is crazy. Does not stop me wanting to smack him though.

Haaaaaaaaaah................wow. Young Dal was really the star of the episode. His initial breakdown scene in front comatose dong soo was just so tender, and desperate.

and then during his confrontation scene with GBT, his anger was so visceral I had to pause it several times because I couldn't handle all of it at once. It's been an interesting road for our oh-so-lovable sabuk gangster, but we got a glimpse of what he's come to be in that last standoff scene against yang-ha (i had to replay that scene like 5 times). I loved the way they panned right over elder ahn's shoulder to reveal young dal's intense gaze, coupled with his devilishly handsome new look. (fire alarms going off in my head)

I assume now that Young Dal is set off on HIS path of revenge, dalhee is going to cool off for a bit and allow yang ha to sneak back into the picture. I know somewhere down the line, they're going to incorporate the fact that jung hee's father was also a coal miner and acquainted with brothers' father. Depends on how clever they want to be with it.

Why is Shin-hye always present at the tear-jerker moments involving the 2 older brothers (in this episode and the last scene of ep 16)??? I don’t know exactly why, but I really really hated the fact that she was there. That scene was between Young-dal and his hyung, she had no reason to stay.

Somebody needs to hold their secrets to tell them to the world when they die.... ok ok I'm kidding I don't know how this will end xD
Maybe the writers are trying to portray the viewers reactions? I know I was crying too.

Oh my GOD right?!?!!!! As a grad student studying to become an art therapist, and having to role-play as a counselor and run real therapy sessions in an internship, I can honestly say that you are CONSTANTLY thinking about the ethical guidelines, when to speak, how to listen, it's amazing how difficult it can be to sit in silence with a client while their working on something, and all you can do is sit and observe, all the while trying not to come across as creepy.

And the hardest part is that there is no script, I mean you can come up with different ways to keep on track with the client, but no endless imagining of possible scenarios can really account for actually running a session. Clients will always surprise you in some way. And everything happens so simultaneously, and so instantaneous.

And I know that this is a drama and that of course for the plot's sake things will have to be exaggerated and overlooked, and that Shin-Hye is a fictional character and even that cultural differences will possibly influence how therapy sessions go, BUT. . . She breaks so many basic common sense ethical codes so EASILY!!!!!

And knowing first hand how hard it is to learn how to be a therapist, and seeing her violate rule after rule after rule like sleeping in a bed with your client (sexually or not) . . . it's like a punch to my brain, and then throwing a Mac truck in reverse over it. Like you temporarily forget it's a drama and think WTF am I doing watching my video-taped role-plays of myself, which is torture ( I have learned I hate listening to the sound of my own voice) if psychiatrists and psychologists are being portrayed this way?!

And she's ALWAYS there! For once I'd like one of the brothers to just say "Can you give us a moment ALONE? Without your physical presence being in any part of this room with the door closed?!"

Oooooh, I deeply in love with Youngdal. I´m so sorry that he needs to broke up (?) with JH, but it´s for a good reason. I just LOVE Jaejoong acting in this episode. I love how he cried his eyes out, how he scream in rage in front of GBT, I just love everything, specially the final scene.
I love this show, for others this show is slow, but for me is amazing. Triangle Fighting!

So many things I have to say about the drama and this episode I don't even know where to start.
They have taken us to journey with YoungDal through the whole drama, from the shameless punk who blackmails a gangsters wife who he is sleeping with, the thug who is making out with random girls... who happens to fall for a sweet but strong woman who reveals his shy and cute side. The scumbag who is pitiful and childlike once we can take a look underneath his skin. Now is a new chapter in that journey, now we have a YoungDal who is no longer a underdog, and also someone who is seeking revenge. We are about to take a look at his dark and dangerous side?
it only make sense, for me, that is him the one to take over Daejung, YD is the one who came with the plan and the one who offer the resources. Also lets not forget is YH and YD the ones who have a conflict, not only about a girl, is about pride as well.
The question is weather or not YD is able to be confident enough not to let YH basically crush him. He is at disadvantage, the whole casino staff hates him and know about YD the scumbag. And YD doesn't know about business, he knows about Poker.
-side note, all the emotions we got in this episode were amazing. From sadness to total anger. My fav scene would be the one with YD and GBT, YD eyes were pure venom.

Moving on, Yang-ha makes sense. I don't know if I have said this before but most of Triangle characters just, make sense.
Yang-ha is someone who has a horrible childhood, as he himself said, he was an heir, not a son and on top of that he was adopted. " if you are not good enought we can dispose you" kind of childhood. And what he learn was to be selfish but also to fear that he will be abandoned, because you know he could be casted aside if he is not good enough.
I agree with those who said he is not in love, but he does seek for that comfort and care that JH offers. And his wounded pride wont let YD, the scumbag, have the girl.

JH as a character is amazig. Again, she makes a lot of sense with everything she has said and done. I think Traingle is lazy when it comes to the female characters, but she is so consistent. She pities YH but she never give him any sign that she has any romatical feelings for him. And she is so straighforward when it comes to YD, even when he tried to push her aside, she is strong enough to stand on her own and let him know she is not going anywhere.
You know, you don't need to punch a guy to show how to be a strong woman. She doesn't let YH or YD take decisions for her, and she is not afraid to tell them NO when she feels like.

I'm in love with this drama

This... "You know, you don’t need to punch a guy to show how to be a strong woman. "..... is priceless!

I'm in total agreement. A strong woman does not need to be physical to show her strength all she needs are her words and her will.

Applause for this comment.

You hit the nail on the head about Young-dal and Yang-ha's respective character arcs - it's amazing now to think of just what a scumbag Young-dal behaved like at first, but he still had that edge of vulnerability that kept us feeling for him even then. And given what we know about Yang-ha, his dysfunctionality, like you said, makes sense.

In their own odd ways though, the two younger brothers have that thing in common - they were raised (in Young-dal's case, self-raised) without affection, without anyone in the world to love them. But their differences come into play when we see how they diverge when it comes to the way they give and receive affection, as expressed in their attitudes to Jung-hee.

(and yes to the Jung-hee love too, I've been on her side ever since we first met her, and the characterisation may have been thin at first but I like that she is consistently frank about her feelings and unwilling to let either Young-dal (by rejecting her/saying he wasn't good enough for her) or Yang-ha (Las Vegas proposal, wtf?!) one-sidedly decide things about her relationships with them.

If I had to add another difference between YD and YH, it would be the friends they have made. Does YH have any friends at all? He looks like a loner who's only companion is JH. If that's the case... well that's a pretty sad existence.

well, he has that utterly pointless Soo-jung (who is such a bad actress I'm just happy she doesn't get to speak onscreen in recent eps) but that appears to be a somewhat 'putting up with you' friendship with a side of crushing from her.

Big Reveal.... The Big Reveal.

Two down, one to go.

This series just keeps getting better and better, and I'm enjoying it more and more.

It must be said, it's remarkable that Dong-soo and Young-dal genuinely like each other as people and have already formed a bond; it may have made it easier to accept each other as brothers, with Yong Ha, I'm not so sure how that will work out; since he is pitting himself as their adversary and a rival for Jung hee's affections. Will brotherhood trump all, I wonder? Will it bring instant forgiveness and make Young Ha abandon his quest for Jung hee's affections? It's disturbing that Young ha accepted the fact that his adopted father was complicit in murder just to save his company. The fact that his attitude will change if he found out that the murdered man was his father doesn't really score him any points.

I feel that President Yoon knows that Young ha is related to Dong soo and Young dal. Maybe adopting the son of the man he murdered was his way of making amends. I notice he didn't trouble to raise him as a son with any affection, merely as an heir to his empire.

My guess is that Youngdal is going to be more accepting to the idea. It seems that he already loves the brother that he still doesn't know. He will probably feel guilty for what happened, I just hope that he doesn't give up on Junghee because of YH too.

tbh,i find what YH did normal, he just uninterested with his origin, that's realistic. i found that those who try to find their real parents are a bit dramatic. or it maybe just me? lol

why? because i knew. this is based on my personal experience, i just know i'm not my father's daughter when i was 21 y.o, that my bio father & my mom divorced when i was 1 y.o and she never ever talk about that. when i knew about that, i'm shocked, yes, but i don't give a fuck about his existence.

for all i know, my recent parents are all i have. they're the one i'm clinging onto. my recent father is my mother 3rd husband too, he's very very strict businessman. someone with sharp mouth and doesn't really showing affection. but i know he care for me and love me as daughter.

sometimes i feel pressed (heck,i think i have this panic disorder too and halfway to depression), because i can't be the daughter he wanted to be, and the wish to run away from home always come to mind, but i stay. because i have to, they're all i have.

among the 3 brothers, i feel YH the most since i have the same experience (tho i root for YD XDD). i would feel it's too cheesy if he become a drama queen and trying hard to find his real parents. i can understand his mind, for him, they're the one who threw him away, why does he have to search for them? they don't need him, so does he. (we all know thats not the case, but from YH pov, it's like that).

anyway, i haven't finished this ep yet, (fell asleep while watching it lolol, not that its boring, but i'm too tired and can't keep my eyes open) so i can't comment yet, i'll back later ^^

ahh, sorry for you, this is just what i feel as a drama fans,
i just though if you know you are adopted maybe sometime you wanna know your real parent...but yeah this is just me and for sure i don't know anything how the feeling actually...

anyway, jaejoong the one who play young dal in a real live also adopted child, his parent divorced too but not like you, jaejoong mother can't take care of him and she give him to someone when he still 3/4 years old, its such a mess when the story about the adopted showed in ever korean news because that time he is already a popular idol and its even bad with his bio father suing his adopted family...sound like korean drama but this is the truth , now jaejoong choose living with his adopted parent and still in touch with his bio mom (no one know about his bio father).

i even though if he play as yang ha he can do better since he got the experience but its to dramatic and jaejoong love challenge..

and your live story whould be in happy ending too because there so many people who love you. be happy ^^

At first this show was pretty slow to get into, but now it's seriously getting better and better every episode. There is so much honesty in Jaejoong's acting and I find myself really rooting for his character. I can't wait until the next episode.

I'm proud of my girl Junghee. She is been pretty consistent in his feeling towards Youngdal during all the show. And even that when YD has decided to push her away, she is still going strong. I like that.
I know that YD has his reasons, but they need someone as strong(heart wise) as Junhee to save this ove story <3<3

It's a bit slow episode and I even hit the ff button in some scenes but I like it nonetheless. YoungDal's scenes in particular are so engaging, you can really see the emotions on his face when he was telling big bro to wake up. I didn't know Jaejoong can cry like that. I feel sorry for YangHa for having an awful adopted father, and I really hope he will be reunited with his real family soon. I have a feeling that big bro DongSoo is gonna be the referee between his two younger bros.
Great recap, thanks gummimochi. :)

i'm just here for jaejoong :D

at least if this keeps mimicking the bollywood blockbuster yaadon ki baaraat (back in ancient times lol), all three brothers will eventually stand together and hopefully survive and win their respective girls.

so far, so good...

Gummimochi, thanks for a great recap!
The OTP in this show has got to rank very high up in terms of being forthcoming to each other, which is refreshing and save us from the painful experience of suffering multiple draggy episodes where lovers misunderstand and/or stay apart for noble idiotic reasons.
Young-dal's new journey is both exciting and scary, as we don't know what awaits him at the end of it- revenge is sweet and all, but what I really want for him, and his brothers is happiness after all the hardship they'd gone through. But as a drama fan, yes, I love that Young-dal is finally starting a new chapter of his life, with purpose and determination.

I think Yang Ha can change! His father's admonition against his liking Jung Hee was the same that Yang Ha gave Jung Hee over liking Young-Dal, and his responded to his father in the same way that she did to him. I think he's going to realize that, slowly learn and swoop in at the end for a tragic hero arc! Yang Ha fighting!! :3
