Triple (Korean Drama 2009)


This drama is about a female figure skater, Lee Haru, who is hoping to make it big. Her life gets complicated when she reunites with her non-blood related step-brother, Shin Hwal, after many years of being separated. Hwal’s father and Haru’s mother died tragically in a car accident. Hwal and his friends; Hae Yoon, Hyun Tae, and Sang Hee all work at the same ad agency. While Haru is trying to make her dreams come true, she unintentionally brings together her skating coach, Choi Soo In, and Hwal together. Haru starts developing feelings for Hwal but things are complicated further as Soo In is her brother’s estranged wife.

Words from Me:

The drama seemed to have a promising start… but it gradually made me want to tear my hair out in frustration. Why? There were those moments where Haru and Shin Hwal had this brother-sister affection but has to be marred by Haru’s other intentions which eventually puts a rift to their sibling affections.

I leave my hatred to the writers. There could have been MORE to this drama. They have all the means in the world to evolve the story line into an epic something!

The main characters were all solid ones, portrayed by great actors and yet it flopped and killed my heart in the end. I couldn’t say that I feel the same emptiness for the supporting cast because, I find liking the story of the supporting cast more than the main ones.

triple16-00016There were two consistent things that I liked in this drama. One, it was having Song Joong Ki as Ji Poong Ho. I love his persistence and his pure heart of a character. There are so many lines that he said to Haru but this one, I like best: “It doesn’t matter if you don’t love me. I’ll keep on loving you anyway.” How could not the girl fall for someone like that? Geez… the guy’s devotion all through out the drama was no joke even if you brought that to real life. I guess that’s the hard reality of being the second lead guy. Two, was the lovely music all through out. If it wasn’t for the music, this drama would have turned out more draggy that it seemed. It was a joy to listen to and the artists that mostly sang my favorite songs in the OST were Zitten and Tearliner.

Over all, I have a love-hate relationship with this drama because there were some elements in Triple that were in the mediocre level. The word I could use for this drama is disappointing. Since that’s what I was left feeling after finishing all 16 episodes and not having luck at my side when it comes to my coupled shipping. So don’t expect me to recommend this… although, I would recommend the sound track for easy listening.
