In keeping with its dark plot "Triangle" did not end happily for all the characters. But that was appropriate and a happy ending would not have been true to the tragic story of three brothers who suffered after they were separated in childhood.

It was inevitable with all the attempts to kill the three brothers that one of them would not make it to the finale. And it"s not the brother viewers might have imagined at the drama"s beginning. While this pointless death will forever haunt the remaining two brothers, it does help end the long criminal career of the drama"s too villains Go Bok Tae and President Yoon. And that resolution brings some peace. It also gives the remaining brothers a chance at the life they might have had if their father had not been murdered

Upcoming SM girl group, Red Velvet, released two more group photos for their upcoming, highly anticipated debut with "Happiness"!
Both group photos show the slightly different concepts the girls took on so far for their individual pictures. One adheres closely to the wild and funky jungle theme while the other tones it down as each girl sports a different, light color with flowers in their hair.
