'Vincenzo': 13 Relatable reactions to Song Joong Ki's latest K-drama on Netflix
Big boss is back
One of the most anticipated K-dramas for 2021, Vincenzo recently premiered on February 20 to rave reviews. In fact, the drama led by Song Joong-ki became the third-highest premiere ratings of any weekend drama in tvN history for its pilot episode. Ratings soar higher for its second episode, closing in to an average rating of 9.3 per cent and a peak of 10.8 per cent.
The K-drama follows the story of anti-hero Vincenzo Cassano (Song Joong-ki) who is a Korean-Italian mafia lawyer who ends up in Korea after a gang betrayal. He meets lawyer Hong Cha Young (Jeon Yeo-been) who will do anything to win a case. The two decides to team up to fight evil with evil—with the assistance of her intern, Jang Joon-woo (Ok Taec-yeon). While it does contain a revenge plot (Vincenzo aims to go against Korean cartels who can't be punished under the law), Vincenzo is also pegged as a dark comedy so expect some funny and cute moments too.
Vincenzo marks Song Joong-ki's return to the acting world after his last stint with 2019’s Arthdal Chronicles. This and the sci-fi epic Space Sweepers, which is also available on Netflix. Episode one and two of Vincenzo is already out on Netflix and if you're still wondering whether the show is worth a watch, the Internet reactions below will easily help with your decision.
Catch 'Vincenzo' at 10pm (Malaysian time) every Saturday and Sunday on Netflix. The new episodes are available two hours after the Korean broadcast.
