Triangle: Episode 23
by | July 22, 2014 | 30 Comments
That’s a helluva pissed off expression if I’ve ever seen one. As more baddies are brought to light and more people on Young-dal’s side are threatened, Young-dal finds it increasingly harder to keep his anger in check. Now if you’re thinking that tidbit would prompt the evil chaebols to get hustlin’ on their ever-present-but-not-really-urgent threat... More »

Triangle: Episode 22
by | July 17, 2014 | 20 Comments
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,... More »

Now that two brothers know the truth, it’s up to them (well, one of them) to protect their youngest from walking into his own destruction. Both revenge and estranged relationships become far more difficult when they realize that bringing down their enemy could potentially take their brother down with them. There are more little moments... More »

Triangle: Episode 20

For a show that certainly knows how to take things slow and easy sometimes, it still knows how to deliver an hour of small victories, heartwarming teamwork, and shattering reveals. Most of all, I appreciate how Triangle surprises us with character moments which subvert conventional drama tropes while also remembering that episodic payoffs are important.... More »

Triangle: Episode 19

For an episode following a rather big revelation, we’re rewarded with more planning and scheming in this hour. To Young-dal’s credit, it’s a pretty smart plan because it requires knowing what makes the other person tick and what pressure points will evoke the kind of reaction our hero wants. It also requires a lot of... More »

Triangle: Episode 18

One kidnapping throws everything and everyone in a tizzy this hour, forcing our rivals in love (and brothers) to work together—however briefly—to secure her release. Never has watching two brothers fight over one girl’s affections, corporate power, and everything in between been this heart-wrenching, especially when the truth is so close. While Doctor Stranger still... More »

It’s not the most thrilling of episodes when it’s all plots and plans and little follow-through—but we do get some where it counts, however sparingly. And though we may not get many specifics this hour, there are some refreshing moments of honesty between our two lovebirds as well as with a son and his long-lost... More »

As much as it defies the laws of physics, Triangle just keeps getting better and better with each passing episode. For once it feels like we’re building up to a proper ending rather than simply counting down to the inevitable moment where the show will drag itself across the finish line just to put itself...

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... More »

Triangle may not be the flashiest show to assault your optic stems week to week, but there’s something to be said for the way it keeps building upon itself to become more than we expected, deeper than what we hoped for, and achingly human despite itself. Watching Young-dal forge a path down memory lane only... More »

What poor, unfortunate souls our three Jang brothers are. Two brothers fight over the affections of one girl while the oldest gets a glimpse into how dark he can get if he allows it. On the upside, there are sweet moments in our budding romance, and I can’t get enough of watching the once-playboy stammer... More »
