By in posted Oct Comments off

 

The ratings rose for all three Wednesday-Thursday night dramas but the order remained the same. The order is not likely to change for the few remaining episodes but they are not that far apart so anything is possible.

The KBS historical drama "The Joseon Gunman" remained in first place, rising from 11.1 percent to 11.7 percent.

The drama is gearing up for a tense finale between Park Yoon Kang, played by Lee Jun Ki, and his enemy Choi Won Shin, played by Yu Oh Sung. Swordfighter and sharpshooter Yoon Kang loses an important ally when Kanemaru, played by Otani Ryohei, makes the ultimate sacrifice to save him, and that sacrifice defines Yoon Kang"s next course of action.

Following close behind is the romantic comedy "Fated To Love You," starring Jang Hyuk, Jang Nara and Choi Jin Hyuk

A Tragic Finale For 'Triangle' Earns First Place In The Ratings

By in posted Oct Comments off

 

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.

Spoiler alert: If you have not yet seen the end of this drama, don"t read any further. 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
