In the field of information theory, statistics and other application areas, the information-theoretic divergences are used widely. To meet the requirement of metric properties, we introduce a class of new metrics based on triangular discrimination which are bounded. Moreover, we obtain some sharp inequalities for the triangular discrimination and other information-theoretic divergences. Their asymptotic approximation properties are also involved.
