This drama has an incredible line up of actors which is why I think created a high expectation from viewers. Plus, the director is the same one who directed Coffee Prince.
Given Coffee Prince was such a hit, I was expecting Triple to be about the same or much better.
Min Hyo Rin, even though was rookie at the time, gave an impressive performance as Lee Haru,a strong-hearted girl who dreams to become a figure skater. She was really adorable being a girl who fall in love with Shin Hwal, her (ex) step-brother.
Shin Hwal played by Lee Jung Jae is undeniably perfect. To be honest, his acting has saved most of the story and script.
Other actors, had played their roles real well, in my opinion but Hana Lee's role as estranged wife of Shin Hwal has unfortunately drain my energy while watching. Her character is so lifeless even with all the problems she had going.
Couldn't help but make the comparison between Triple and Coffee Prince. My take is that there's too many depressing moments and not much breather in between. Coffee Prince on the other hand, take one problem at a time and give viewers a time to smile before the next tears.
Overall, I gave it an 8 because the acting performance was sort of brilliant and the story was not totally hopeless.
