Background

After enjoying rewarding weekends of ‘Vicenzo’ episodes, fans will be sad to know that episode 17 will not be aired on the 17th of April. But don’t worry! A special episode of ‘Vincenzo’ will be aired instead. However, the slot for April 18 is yet to be decided.

 

‘Vincenzo’ tells the story of an 8-year old boy named Park Joo-Hyeong who went to Italy after he was adopted. As an adult, he has now changed his name to Vincenzo Cassano, played by Song Joong-Ki. 

 

 

He is a lawyer who works for the Mafia as a consigliere, where he serves as an advisor to the leader and resolves disputes between the members of the family. However, when a war breaks out between the mafia groups, he packs his bags and flees to South Korea. 

 

Here is where his life takes a positive turn — he meets with another lawyer, Hong Cha-Young played by Jeon Yeo-Bin. He absolutely falls hook, line and sinker in love with her.

When asked about the show, Song Joong-Ki gave a thought-provoking answer, 

 

“These days there are a lot of bad people in the news. When writer Park Jae Bum gave me the synopsis, I sympathized with it a lot because it contains many contents criticizing society. I think it is a very new genre, a high-class genre.” 

 

Song Joong Ki went on to say,

 

“But that isn’t the only charm that attracted me to it. The narrative is heavy and deep, but it’s a pleasant and refreshing drama.”

 

Regarding his character, he elaborated by saying,

 

“He’s worse and stronger than the bad guys. He is a Korean who has lived only in Italy, so he’s a lonely character as he is foreign to Korea. At first, I thought Italian would be easy to pick up, but it’s a complicated language. Still, the language teacher helped me a lot.”

He added that,

 

“There are some people who see me in a different image than the image that is seen to the general public. I wanted to transparently depict Vincenzo’s spitefulness, wickedness, and sharpness.”

 

Prior to playing the dashing Vincenzo Cassano, Song Joong-Ki has made waves when he played Captain Yoo Si-jin in ‘Descendants of the Sun’.
