Due to a war between Mafia families, Vincenzo returns to South Korea where he crosses paths with another lawyer named, Hong Cha Young (Jeon Yeo Bin). Together the two join forces to take down villains who can’t be punished by the court of law.
Below are three reasons to tune in to the upcoming premiere of “Vincenzo” on February 20th!
1. The cast
Fueled by an all-star cast, Vincenzo features Song Joong Ki, Jeon Yeo Bin, Ok Taec Yeon, Kwak Dong Yeon, and more.

Ok Taec Yeon as Jang Joon Woo

Kwak Dong Yeon as Jang Han Seo

2. Production power team
The screenwriting and direction of “Vincenzo” have been garnering interest since the release of the drama’s teaser posters last month. The main characters each have their own tagline that is reflective of the drama’s black comedy genre.
“Vincenzo” is helmed by director Kim Hee Won, who received positive reviews for her detailed and refined directing in “The Crowned Clown' and 'Money Flower.” Penning the script is Park Jae Bum of “The Fiery Priest” and “Good Manager,” notoriety. Together they are expected to impress once again as they plan to deliver a large-scale refresher to the audience through a plethora of dimensions. Viewers won’t be able to take their eyes off of the dark portrayals and elegant cinematography that will highlight the evolving relationships between the main cast.
3. A new side of Song Joong Ki
Song Joong Ki fans are in for a real treat as he sheds his flower boy image in favor of something much darker. In true SJK form, he oozes charisma, albeit dark charisma, as he embodies Vincenzo, a man who is cold-blooded, merciless, and calculated. It’s impossible to know what he’s thinking or feeling from minute to minute as he sets out to punish evil with evil.
Are you ready to embrace this dark hero?
