Triple (Hangul: 트리플; RR: Teuripeul) is a 2009 South Korean television series starring Min Hyo-rin, Lee Jung-jae, Yoon Kye-sang, Lee Sun-kyun, and Lee Ha-na. It aired on MBC from June 11 to July 30, 2009 on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 21:55 for 16 episodes.
Eighteen-year-old aspiring figure skater Lee Ha-ru (Min Hyo-rin) moves to Seoul to pursue her ice dreams. In the city she reunites with her stepbrother Shin Hwal (Lee Jung-jae), whom she hasn't seen in years. Her divorcee mother had remarried Hwal's father when Ha-ru was 6, but their parents died in a car accident when she was 13. Ha-ru was sent to live with her real father (Choi Baek-ho) in the countryside and had since lost touch with Hwal.
Hwal, now in his mid-thirties, works at an advertising agency with his two best friends and roommates, Kang Hyun-tae (Yoon Kye-sang) and Jo Hae-yoon (Lee Sun-kyun). When Ha-ru suddenly shows up at the doorstep of their bachelor pad, she ends up moving in with the three men.
Ha-ru's new figure skating coach, Choi Soo-in (Lee Ha-na) turns out to be Hwal's estranged wife. Her plans to make amends with her ex-husband are derailed when his outgoing friend Hyun-tae falls for her instantly and begins pursuing her.
Hae-yoon and bartender Kang Sang-hee (Kim Hee) are longtime friends. When a one-night stand leads to something more, the more old-fashioned Hae-yoon has difficulty dealing with Sang-hee's commitment issues.
