TRIANGLE EPISODE 13Recap:Jung Hee
catches up with Young Dal
and they patch things up, although her grandmother cautions her not to get involved with him. Dong Soo
arranges to visit his mother while Yang Ha
gets reamed by his father, who is disappointed in his management techniques. Young Dal
continues his plotting to gain power, which involves help from Madame Jang
, the old pawnshop owner, Boss Min
, and his elderly former cellmate. He also contacts Shin Hye
asking if there's a way to regain his memory and spends time with Jung Hee
when he can while Yang Ha
jealously watches. Dong Soo
targets one of the shareholders at Daejung Casino by blackmailing him. Yang Ha's
father enlists Chairman Go
to get rid of Dong Soo
. When Young Dal
checks in with the former detective, he sees the picture of their dad on the altar inside Dong Soo's
apartment, which sparks something inside the young man. Young Dal
undergoes hypnosis and remembers while Dong Soo
seems to know now who the young man is...My take:
I have an issue with Jung Hee's
grandmother. The halmoni
is all smiles on the outside, but apparently doesn't like Young Dal
. I was interested when he was warmly greeted by her, his room kept for him at the insistence of Jung Hee
. But this episode, she tells Jung Hee
that she needs to get a man worthy of her because she has a good job. I'm hoping Jung Hee
disregards her grandmother's words or maybe Young Dal
can rise above this. For all of his faults, the writers want to paint him like a decent guy. I'm rooting for him.Dong Soo stuns a Daejung Group shareholder in the elevator.
plan to bring down Daejung Group and avenge his father is working. As investors pull out, Yang Ha's
father is forced to ask for more and more help. Daejung needs money, which is why the old man is key. He has funds that will help keep Daejung afloat. It is taking a toll on Dong Soo.
He is disgusted with himself and his methods even though it is for a noble cause. He cries in front of Shin Hye,
who drinks with him and offers support. I love this plan as it's pretty well legal, well, except for the blackmail thing this episode. And it hits them where it hurts: in the pocketbook.Young Dal's
scheme is somewhat more complex than Dong Soo's.
It looks as if he's not only working in concert with Dong Soo
, but also working to further his own goals. He hits up Madame Jang
for money (still being a partner in that illicit casino), solicits Boss Min's
help in obtaining information on Daejung, goes back to work for the old pawnshop owner (as a cover), and enlists the old man for help in his bid for power. I'm not sure exactly how all this is supposed to come together, but it's fun to watch.Already three sheets to the wind, Yang Ha reaches for another drink Yang Ha
is disintegrating before our eyes. His plans are thwarted, his father scolds him, and his intentions with Jung Hee
are threatened by Young Dal's
involvement. He throws things, he yells; it's obvious that stress is getting to him. What's amusing is he gives into his baser values. Rather than doing what's good for Daejung, he calls Chairman Go
and again asks him to deal with Young Dal
, likely to give him a better shot with Jung Hee.
Also fun to watch possibly because of the standard portrayals of chaebol
life. The funny thing is, the more distant he is from his family, the more likely he will side with his brothers if that time comes.
There's nothing like scheming and plotting and more to keep a show interesting. I love seeing all the plans come together and then fall apart as they layer more complexity. What will happen with Young Dal's
memory loss? Will more hypnosis help? How will Dong Soo
and Young Dal
fare against the power of Yang Ha
and Daejung Group? I can't wait to find out.
