Vincenzo may have come to an end on May 2, 2021, but main lead Song Joong Ki is still riding high in popularity. Already a top Hallyu star known for playing a diverse spectrum of roles, Netflix's Vincenzo was perhaps his darkest project yet.
In the K-drama, Song portrays Italian mafia consigliere Vincenzo Cassano, a character that is at times brutal in seeking vengeance but the show is also peppered with comedic moments for good measure. This stereotype-breaking ‘dark hero’ format, coupled with a stellar cast and Song’s cool, handsome mien, propelled the dark comedy to a resounding success both in South Korea and internationally.
Today, the K-drama is the sixth highest-rated drama in tvN history following Crash Landing On You, Goblin, Reply 1988, Mr. Sunshine, and Mr. Queen. It's also ranked within Netflix's Top 10, where it continues to gain love from new audiences and keep fans hooked.
