Triangle: Episode 22

We’ve officially circled back to plotting and planning with minimal follow-through, which is its own kind of letdown for anyone weathering the meandering pace in the hopes that the emotional payoffs, however sparse, will make it all worthwhile. While this hour isn’t bereft of important brotherly connections, it certainly takes its sweet time exploring them, much to the detriment of the story flow. If Triangle doesn’t start shaping up soon, it’ll be yet another addition to the ever-growing list of Dramas Negatively Impacted By Extensions. And I, for one, don’t want it to be.

Ratings-wise, Triangle maintained its first place spot with 10.0% (I know!), while its competitors remained in the single digits.

EPISODE 22 RECAP

Unfortunately, we don’t get to see the immediate fallout from Young-dal telling Yang-ha that he’s his long-lost little brother. Instead, we cut to both siblings after the fact as they brood about what just happened.

Yang-ha calls Kim Jin-soo to ask for the truth regarding his adoption, but the old man is reluctant to divulge any information as he insists, “You’re Chairman Yoon’s one and only son.”

“Before I was adopted, my name was Jang Dong-woo, wasn’t it?” Yang-ha presses. “My father was Jang Jung-kook. I have two hyungs: The oldest one is Jang Dong-soo, and the younger one is Jang Dong-chul. Is this true?”

Kim Jin-soo grows ever more uncomfortable as he insists that he knows nothing, but at Yang-ha’s incessant pleading, he finally gives in: “Yes, they are your brothers.”

Yang-ha reels in shock, tears streaming down his face as he asks if this means his real father was the man Chairman Yoon hired Chairman Go to kill. And if so, how could he have adopted him and raised him as his own? How?

The older man begs for Yang-ha’s forgiveness as he claims Chairman Yoon wasn’t aware of his parentage—he took it upon himself to try and atone for what happened by having Yang-ha raised by a wealthy family. This isn’t much of a balm to Yang-ha, who asks what right Kim Jin-soo had to decide something so enormous for him.

“What I did was wrong,” Kim sighs heavily. “Please forgive me.” But Yang-ha can only cry piteously as the truth of his existence settles in.

Since Young-dal is going through such a rough patch, Jang-soo tells the boys that he won’t be at work for a few days and asks Jung-hee to lend Young-dal whatever support she can. He’ll need it.

Jung-hee finds Young-dal moping alone, and isn’t successful in her early attempts to get him to open up. When he finally tells her that he recently found his younger brother, she smiles that that’s great news—what’s there to be sad about?

“My dongsaeng… is Yoon Yang-ha,” Young-dal admits. While Jung-hee’s eyes grow wide with shock, Young-dal’s remain distant and pensive as he adds guiltily that he’s the reason his little brother is about to get arrested.

Chairman Yoon has had it up to here with Young-dal, and tasks Director Hyun with getting rid of him. Knowing that Young-dal would have no reason to stay at Daejung without his connection to Elder Ahn, Director Hyun vows to find a way to sever their relationship.

Kim Jin-soo takes this chance to plead with Chairman Yoon about letting Yang-ha take the fall for him, but Yoon won’t be swayed: if they don’t feed Yang-ha to the prosecutors, it’d mean he’d have to take responsibility. And he has no intention of doing any such thing.

Young-dal feels hopeless when it comes to saving Yang-ha from prison, but Dong-soo refuses to let him fall into despair. He thinks that Elder Ahn might be of some help, and advises Young-dal to seek his opinion.

Since Yang-ha still seeks Shin-hye’s advice for whatever reason, he goes to her with the same conundrum his two brothers are facing: What should he do?

Her advice is for him to not take the fall for his father, but Yang-ha retorts that she’s asking him to abandon the man who’s raised(?) him his whole life for two brothers that just came out of nowhere.

Yang-ha decides that he’ll no longer seek Shin-hye out if this is the kind of stuff she’s going to spout, because he considers Dong-soo and Young-dal as nothing more than two people trying to take him and his father down.

Young-dal asks Elder Ahn if there’s any way of stopping the investigation not only because their main target has found a way to weasel out of it, but because the scapegoat, Yang-ha, is his long-lost little brother.

Elder Ahn knows an incredible turn of events when he sees one (only in dramaland), and empathizes with both Young-dal and Yang-ha as he promises to see what he can do.

Just in case we didn’t know Young-dal’s inner conflict, Boss Min explains it to Team Young-dal as she wonders if there’s anything she can do for their poor comrade.

Jang-soo tells her that there is, and asks if she can make sure Kang Sun-tae doesn’t spill whatever incriminating information he has on Chairman Yoon so they can prevent Yang-ha from going to jail.

And just in case we still weren’t up and up on what’s going on, Hyun-mi wonders aloud about Young-dal being responsible for Yang-ha’s possible-future-arrest. Jung-hee agrees as she murmurs, “They really shouldn’t be doing this to each other.”

They stand at awkward attention when Yang-ha passes them, but he stops momentarily to share a charged but silent glance with Jung-hee.

Onto the next scene where the same matter is discussed, this time with Director Hyun telling the casino managers to be on their toes with Yang-ha’s investigation on the horizon.

He gets in a dig about Manager Bae betting on the wrong horse (aka Yang-ha), before correcting Bae’s female counterpart on the rumor mill regarding Young-dal’s part in Yang-ha’s possible arrest. Of course, Manager Bae later tells her that the rumors are all true—Young-dal is responsible for the investigation.

Yang-ha starts his farewell tour before the investigation and stops by Director Hyun’s office to warn him against getting it into his head that he can become the heir to Daejung while he’s gone.

Director Hyun gets flustered now that he’s been found out, while Yang-ha all but shrugs at the futility of Hyun’s ambition. But he makes sure to warn him to be careful of Young-dal if he’s really going to try to usurp his position, “Because Heo Young-dal may be an even bigger threat to you than I am.”

While Chairman Go orders his minion to do something about Young-dal (for real this time you guys), Yang-ha warns Manager Bae to be careful of Director Hyun moments before men come to escort him to the prosecutor’s office.

Young-dal gets a brief moment with his littlest bro, only to be taken aback when Yang-ha declares that his relationship with his father is more important to him than his brothers are. This shocks Young-dal into asking if Yang-ha is unaware of what Chairman Yoon did to them.

“Your father isn’t Yoon Tae-joon,” Young-dal stresses. “It’s Jang Jung-kook. Your father is Jang Jung-kook, the man Yoon Tae-joon killed.” But Yang-ha snipes back that that name has no meaning to him—besides, he has no memories of that father.

“Dong-woo-ya,” Young-dal ekes out with tears in his eyes. Yang-ha: “Don’t call me by that name. My name is Yoon Yang-ha.” But even as he’s escorted away, Young-dal calls out his birth name pitifully.

Outside, Young-dal completely breaks down: “Dong-woo-ya… Dong-woo-ya…”

When Dong-soo confronts Chairman Yoon over his inaction regarding Yang-ha’s arrest, Chairman Yoon takes the same stance as his adopted son when it comes to who his real family is as he declares that Dong-soo’s relationship to Yang-ha means nothing to him.

Furthermore, he adds that Dong-soo and Young-dal are the reason Yang-ha’s being investigated at all—so if they care so much about him, they should do something about it.

Dong-soo tells Shin-hye how shocked he is over how little Chairman Yoon cares for Yang-ha, adding that he’s changed his mind about whether Yang-ha would be better off staying with his adoptive father: “If left under Yoon Tae-joon, Dong-woo will end up becoming a monster too.”

But Shin-hye, all-seeing and all-knowing, reminds him that they need to focus on how to free Yang-ha before anything else. That’s when Dong-soo tells her that Young-dal is working with Elder Ahn on his end to see what can be done. (Yes, but what are you doing about it?)

After finding out that Boss Min made sure Kang Sun-tae wouldn’t spill any of his incriminating information on Chairman Yoon, Young-dal calls to thank her. She passes it off as nothing, but makes sure to warn Young-dal that Chairman Go has put out orders for him to be taught a lesson. Again.

In order to protect Young-dal, Boss Min orders that all her men be mobilized to ward off Chairman Go’s men. Talk about déjà vu. Manbong takes on the role of general to Boss Min’s men as they gather to prepare for battle against the group of thugs Chairman Go has deployed near Madame Jang’s casino.

Madame Jang has enough warning to clear out any customers before Go’s thugs enter her casino looking for Young-dal. Boss Yang suffers no guilt in redirecting them to Daejung Casino instead.

After the leader of the Annoying Sunbae Trio continues to act uncharacteristically nice to Jung-hee only to talk viciously about her behind her back, Young-dal invites Jung-hee out to ease his loneliness.

Jung-hee’s just happy he reached out, explaining how consumed with worry she’s been about him. Over some soju, Young-dal takes her and himself down memory lane as he tells her about how he was left to care for his littlest brother alone and how painful it was when he was taken away from him.

She’s still having a hard time wrapping her head around the fact that Yang-ha is his long-lost brother, and asks what will happen to him now. Young-dal hangs his head as he admits that he’s doing everything he can to save him from being imprisoned, but doesn’t know if it’ll be enough.

Picking up on his mood, Jung-hee reaches across the table to grasp Young-dal’s hand in hers. “One day… Yoon Yang-ha will realize how much you truly care about him.”

Chairman Go’s thugs find Young-dal with Jung-hee and force him to follow them into a shady alley where they can duke it out. Jung-hee can do nothing but fret and call Jailbreak for help when she’s left behind.

Young-dal is outnumbered but excited at the prospect of taking the thugs on since he’s been itching for a fight. He actually ends up kicking so much ass that the thugs are sent running home to Daddy Go with their tails between their legs.

Team Young-dal freaks out about their friend’s fate since he never came home that night, unaware that he spent the night in his old room at Jung-hee’s house.

Little Byung-soo is the one to wake him up by calling him “Brother-in-law.” Hah. It’s adorable how Young-dal is so excited to be called that, as he ushers Byung-soo over to him with a grin: “I am, aren’t I? That’s what’ll probably happen, right?” Awwww.

Of course, Byung-soo extorts his new soon-to-be family member by saying that his friend’s brother-in-law always gives him money—so of course, Young-dal wants to earn points and does the same. Cute cute cute.

Young-dal’s smile only brightens when he finds that Jung-hee has prepared breakfast for him and the family, while Grandma dotes over him approvingly. To add to this idyllic scene, he and Jung-hee also share a sweet little smile when their eyes meet across the table.

Team Young-dal is relieved to see him safe and sound at work the next day, though Boss Min calls him like a worried mother to take him to task about going off the grid last night.

However, when he tells her that he plans to meet with her to make plans about Chairman Go, she assumes that he’s finally planning on taking care of Go for good.

Young-dal meets with SUNG YOO-JIN (executive decision to call Jiyeon by her character name, now that we know it), and is introduced to her sidekick, DIRECTOR YEON, from her father’s conglomerate Hanchang Group.

She immediately cuts to the chase: Hanchang Group and the American-based casino conglomerate Anderson Group are about to sign a ten billion dollar investment deal.

It would completely eclipse the deal Daejung made for their newest island resort, but Anderson has a condition: They want a monopoly over foreign clients. That’s why Yoo-jin contacted Young-dal, because if he can help her solve that condition, she’ll cut him in on the deal.

After telling Dong-soo that Yang-ha has been released thanks to Young-dal’s behind-the-scenes help, Shin-hye finds Yang-ha to tell him the same thing. He stands by his decision to not consider his brothers as his family, but Shin-hye manages to convince him to meet with Dong-soo before he decides to cut his blood ties completely.

Yang-ha’s face remains stoic and impassive as Dong-soo admits that he doesn’t have the right to call himself his brother after he failed to protect him as a baby. “But Dong-woo-ya… even if you deny our relationship, don’t deny our father, Jang Jung-kook. No matter how you decide to live your life, don’t ever erase his name from your heart.”

As Dong-soo goes on to say that he won’t object if Yang-ha and Young-dal decide to live separate lives as long as they’re not fighting, Yang-ha’s eyes begin to glisten with unshed tears. Dong-soo adds that if he only had one wish for his youngest brother, it would be for him not to follow in Chairman Yoon’s footsteps.

Dong-soo: “Do you remember telling me once that money was honor, money was pride, and money was everything? That’s not true. There are so many things more important than money in this world. What breaks my heart and saddens me the most is that Chairman Yoon raised you to think that way.”

After choking back his own tears, Dong-soo excuses himself. Yang-ha never says a word.

Yang-ha is embraced by Chairman Yoon upon his return, though he can’t help but think back to Dong-soo’s wish that he not follow in his father’s footsteps. But methinks Yang-ha knows just how little his father was involved in his early release when he tells his father that it was all thanks to his efforts—when in reality, he knows he has Young-dal to thank.

Speaking of, Chairman Yoon promises Yang-ha that he’ll get rid of Young-dal and Elder Ahn. Yang-ha doesn’t need to worry about a thing.

While Chairman Go is over the moon upon hearing news that the investigation into Yang-ha (and himself by extension) has been called off, Young-dal’s buddies are just as over the moon when he tells them that they could get cut into that multi-billion dollar Hanchang deal.

But since news only arrives via human messenger pigeons, Young-dal is the last one to find out about Yang-ha’s release—even though he was the one pulling strings to make it happen. Whatever the case, Young-dal is happy to hear it.

Dong-soo is the next person to call Young-dal with the same news, admitting that Yang-ha’s release was all thanks to him. But Young-dal quickly catches on to the fact that Dong-soo has had a little too much to drink as his hyung laments that he’s too ashamed to even face Young-dal because he’s never done anything nice for him.

He starts to tear up as he claims he’s happy Yang-ha was released, but that his heart still aches every time he thinks of Young-dal. Because he feels sick to his stomach when he thinks about how the three of them ended up this way and because of the rage he feels toward Chairman Yoon, he felt justified in having a few drinks.

“I just miss our father so much today,” Dong-soo says as he breaks down over the phone. Young-dal can do nothing but voice his concern for his hyung… at least until Dong-soo, in desperation, asks what they’re going to do about Yang-ha.

He hangs up before Young-dal can even try to answer, and as we see both brothers crying separately, we find Yang-ha drinking alone as he thinks back to his meeting with Dong-soo, as well as his father’s promise to get rid of Young-dal.

Yang-ha is welcomed back to Daejung with open arms as the new CEO by everyone but Director Hyun, who plans to bring about Yang-ha’s downfall by pitting him against his black-hearted father.

Speak of the devil, Chairman Yoon calls Yang-ha to say that he’s “taken care of” Elder Ahn, and that all Yang-ha has to do is take care of Young-dal.

…Which means Young-dal is in for a rude awakening when he gets to work only for Messenger Pigeon Jun-ho to tell him that Elder Ahn has been in a car accident. He’s alive, at least, but in very critical condition.

Yang-ha watches the exchange in shock before Young-dal sprints from the building, hell bent on getting to the hospital as fast as he can.

 
COMMENTS

Seeing as how Chairman Yoon can do his own dirty work with about about 99.9% more efficiency than Chairman Go, I’m hard-pressed to find a reason why Go is still treated as though he’s not totally obsolete and/or irrelevant. He had his time in the spotlight as a particularly nasty villain, but that time seems to have come and gone now that Young-dal’s entered the big leagues—heck, the show even hung a lantern on Chairman Go losing his villainous flair when he literally asked his minion if he lost it.

So we saw a big deal made of Chairman Go’s inability to carry out any orders ever last episode, and when he was tasked with taking care of Young-dal (again), only to fail spectacularly (again), I was actually kind of glad we didn’t cut to Chairman Go getting a cartoonish “I’ll get you next time, Gadget! Neeeext time!” moment. Because that’s all it would’ve been at this point: a joke. He’s turned into a joke at this point, so I really hope Young-dal was being serious about taking care of Chairman Go. Someone’s gotta do it.

While I admit to feeling a bit underwhelmed with Yang-ha’s reaction to the big reveal, there’s definitely room for growth now that he seems to be even the slightest bit torn between his adoptive not-a-family and his real one. Young-dal’s change in the way he approached Yang-ha was also very subtle (maybe too subtle), since he didn’t spend all that long reconciling the Yang-ha he hated versus the little brother he’s been missing. I was expecting more conflict on that front, but it’s not so out of character that Young-dal can’t ignore his better self even if he wishes he could. And even though he’d like to lump Yang-ha in with Chairman Yoon, this hour made it clear that he thinks of Yang-ha as his flesh and blood, whether he likes it or not.

Which still leaves Dong-soo with nothing to do but continue his career path of being Sad And Worried. There’s clearly some self-awareness on the part of the show when it comes to Chairman Go’s impotence, but I do wonder whether Dong-soo’s ineptitude is something that will be addressed anytime soon. His conversation with Yang-ha was just about the only worthwhile action he had, since his only other attempt to do something in confronting Chairman Yoon was just sad. He clearly made no plans other than to tell Chairman Yoon his thoughts, so when Chairman Yoon all but brushed him off, he was left with nothing. He made no impact. That scene was rendered completely unnecessary.

However, if Dong-soo’s tearful phone call with Young-dal is any indicator, there could be a possibility for some character change on the horizon. I wouldn’t know, because spinning theories based on future unknowns is Shin-hye’s job.

Lately I'm kinda pissed that after so many good episodes improving, these last episodes were not as good. Slow and too many flashbacks, plus some characters have lost their sense of purpose. Were I the writer, I would end Chairman Go's role in here, since obviously there are bigger sharks in Young Dal's horizons. Dongsoo is a pity, tho. I love LBS and he deserves a better character. Plus this Dongsoo is a lot less interesting that anger-management-issues/revenge-seeker Dongsoo from the first episodes. Here for hoping he'll get that spark back.

I still enjoy the show very much, though. Maybe it's because at this point I am already super invested in the characters, who knows, but here I am. I really like it.

There are so many things wrong with this show, many of which Heads already pointed out. Most of the time we see a lot of sitting and way too many flashbacks. At this point, I wish that the focus would really be on how the brothers develop their rediscovered (or newly discovered) relationships. I want to see other discussions that don't surround what to do with the chairman. Yes, it would be nice for justice to be served but as I came to this show to watch the relationship of the brothers unfold, I am much more interested in seeing them reconnect and try to built new lives together. I want to see more conflict, pain, and then healing (or at least, the first steps toward healing).

Additionally, I wish that Dongsoo had a more engaging role here. Lee Beomsoo is utterly wasted in this role.

Exactly, they have as much sitting around and talking as any sageuk.....but in far less interesting costumes, and with far less interesting results.

I appreciate what we do get of the brothers, but Dong-soo just doesn't get any chance to shine as a character unless he's with his brother/s. He's basically become the male Shin-hye here.....and god knows Lee Beom-soo deserves better. I get that this episode is supposed to be about the mess that happens when two brothers unwittingly work against a third, but at this point, if I never laid eyes on Slimy Hyun or Chairman Cabbage Patch Doll (I still hate you, whoever came up with that!), I'd be happy. The brothers' parts are fine, but the other superfluous plotting? Nope.

yeah, I see they're struggling with the live shoot - too many flashbacks!

I guess the episode still has high points though - the best one is Young-dal being so chuffed to be called 'brother-in-law' by Byung-soo. I know Byung-soo totally uses it to get money out of him, but the way the scene is played, he just lets it slip and doesn't seem to realise Young-dal likes it that much (and can be made to give him money for it) until he asks what exactly he just called him.

(and Byung-soo is totally a secret DalHee shipper, look at him scrambling to tell his noona that Young-dal was there in episode 17 when it looked like YD was just going to clean out his stuff and leave). I really enjoy how much Young-dal values being treated as part of a family, which is what Jung-hee's family is to him now.

and for what it's worth, I actually liked Yang-ha's reaction to the brother reveal, it makes sense for his character and Im Siwan plays the scene with Kim Jin-soo really well. Triangle isn't his greatest work imo, but he's a natural actor who's been improving steadily with each project, including the low profile ones. I'm so glad he's confirmed as the lead for Misaeng, he's earned it.

I am just so glad that the characters (even Yang-ha) are starting to realize the Chairman Yoon is NOT a father. Being raised in luxury does not bring automatic happiness. He never considered Yang-ha his son and can kick him out of his life just as easily as he brushes dust off his shoulder. The man is pure evil, and even though Yang-ha says he will stick by him, seeing his father's lack of concern over letting his son take the fall and the fact that he orchestrated the accident of an elderly man, I think (based on his reactions) Yang-ha is starting to see his father for what he is: a cold-blooded killer.

And how cute are Young-dal's interactions with Jung-hee and her family. I am glad to see them together again. I hated when they were apart.

Yang-ha isn't totally without a conscience - he did look horrified on first learning that his adoptive dad ordered his bio dad's murder. Chairman Yoon has always been an awful person, but I think this episode lets it sink in just HOW bad a dad he is, to be letting his young son take the fall for him just because he's adopted (while pretending to show affection to his face)

Yeah, he's not totally without a conscience, but it amazes me how easily he can cast his conscience aside when it suits him to do so, so that he can win big daddy's affection and acceptance.

Not that I blame him, since, for a great majority of his life Yoon was his only parent and role model, and he has been "groomed" or manipulated all of his life into feeling the need to please his father or be kicked out. Still, other children would probably have created some emotional and physical distance between themselves and their parents if they knew that their parent was a murderer. But Yang ha just accepted his father's explanation that the murder was necessary for the success of the company and moved on.

I can fully understand why he is rejecting becoming a part of Young-dal and Dong Soo's family. To do so would be to live with the fact that he caused both his older brothers to go to prison for over a year, that he had fallen in love with his older brother's girl, that the father he looked up to and idolized for most of his life murdered his biological father. These are not easy things to live with by any means, and being as fragile as he is, the easiest path for him to choose, to maintain his sanity would be to insist on still being part of the Yoon family. I don't think that his motivation stems from what he can inherit from Yoon at all.

Another thought occurred to me: I guess they just dropped the bio-mom storyline. Young-dal met her, Jang-soo met her and . . . . I guess that's it, unless they have something planned for her later.

I had hoped that they would focus a little more on the mom or the back story of her abandoning her three sons, but it seems that this is just one more thread that's going nowhere.

Too much emphasis is being put on the business of the casino and bringing down President Yoon and Go Bok Tae, and less development on how the three brothers unite to become a family once more.

I do hope Dong Soo survives this show, because the last scene of him drinking in the bar being maudlin was kind of ominous. I hope the show isn't going to kill him off. There's so little development of him as a character since his stabbing and recovery. He seems to have tapered off, even the romance between him and Shin-hye is not being developed. I don't think relationships is one of the writers strong points, but with the strong acting of the cast, the show is able to overcome this simply because we are so vested in the outcome of the brothers. I do hope they all go on to fall in love, have relationships and live normal, healthy lives.

But while Young-dal is coming into his own, Dong Soo is left floundering. At least Yang-ha is beginning to re-evaluate his life, now that he has seen another option and another way to live, he's questioning his father and the values he was brought up with.

Since the beginning of this drama I was obsessed over what would be YH reaction when he learns that he is brother with the scumbag he hates so much.
So here I am, actually enjoying the result. OK yes it wasn't that dramatic, I was waiting for some blood from somewhere (YH try to kill YD? YH try to kill himself?). but is ok, is a more realistic this way.
While I do agree that YD give up to easily (for what I was expecting) truth to be told, we knew he was going to do it... because he feels guilty.
-> enter flashback to his sension with Shin-hye <---
YH is stuck in the middle of "these people who are my family but who I don't have any emotional bond with, people who I can't stand and people who I don't want to be associated with" and "this man who adopted and raised me. A man who doesn't see me as a soon, and who doesnt love me, but I am desperate since I can recall to make him accept me"

Don’t call me by that name. My name is Yoon Yang-ha this is it, right? We can not expect him to change so easily.

YH, love, how is that your brothers who have no other bond but blood, who didn't see you grow, who can't really call themselves your family, care more about you going to prison than the person who saw you when you learn how to walk and speak and who you call a father?
They are both responsable to send him to jail, the brothers who set it up without knowing YH is related to them, or the so called "father" who is asking you to sacifice?

As far as I'm concerned, no character has suffer a lobotomy yet, and though some have disappeared, no major unatural thing had happen to make me hate the development. Will wait and see.

Thank you for the fast recap, Heads! I was expecting this tomorrow morning, so I was mighty excited to see it up already :)

The extension is beginning to be felt with each passing episode, which was to be expected...but please don't dull out the story and fill it up with useless flashbacks and plotting -.-

While I was awaiting Yang-ha to lose his marbles after finding out, I guess that was just wishful thinking ;P I was ok with how things turned out, although it seemed as if he was avowing himself to reject his bros and stick with Daddy Dearest...until he heard the news at the end that he went ahead and "took care" of Elder Han with the convenient auto accident.

His look of bewilderment that he actually went ahead to take Elder Han out of the picture completely...his "promise" to take care of Young-dal must be ringing in his ears. How, despite hating the fact that he's related to Dong-soo and Young-dal, to see Daddy Dearest actually take the initiative to kill yet again...it must be terrifying to Yang-ha that people can easily disposed of in Daddy Dearest's world and that he had put himself up to the task to do the same.

I agree that Dong-soo's usefulness in the story is wearing thin, especially his so-called "confrontation" with Daddy Dearest. It was utterly pointless...especially since he was just brushed off like a bug. The only true impact he had was with his convo with Yang-ha, which was especially visible when Daddy Dearest hugged him and his face contorted in what looked like disgust. I mean, even if he abhorred his family lineage -- to have the man who killed his bio dad and caused the bros to separate hugging him in fake happiness? I'd feel disgusted too.

As for Skunk Go's usefulness...I think that either he'll be disposed of by Daddy Dearest for failing to execute a job properly yet again (yeah, it's becoming more of a joke what a "tough evil villain" he is) or he might swing Young-dal's way. For conniving and carrying out evildoings for the majority of this drama, that would be a crapshoot way out...just make him fade away, rotting away in prison like he so deserves, or kill him off in a spectacular fashion. It's the least we deserve for having to have him being the primary villain carrying out Daddy Dearest's dirty work.

It was heartwarming to see Young-dal be so happy with Jung-hee's family...what a nice glimpse into something nice and pure, compared to the dirty-ness that is the casino/Daddy Dearest's evil ways.

i love all young dal gangster friends around, how they care so much to him, everyone in panic mood when they can't find young dal and feel so glad when young dal is fine lol

also, i think mr.ahn will die and young dal will be the heir and of course young dal will be in danger more, now just curious what yang ha will do?

i hope the war between the gangster really a big war with blood everywhere..lol that whould be interesting

as for young dal at first he can't accept the fact yang ha is his brother but when jung hee told him how yang ha suffered i think this is adding more reason why he finally can't help but accept yang ha beside the guilty he have.

but talking about guilty, i feel sorry the most for the oldest hyung, this guy at first is all about revenge but now after everything become like this.. all he want just seeing his two younger brother have a happy live but he can't do anything...yeah i feel sorry for all the brother
