In it, he plays Korean-Italian Vincenzo Cassano, a lawyer and mafia consigliere who flees an ongoing gang war in Italy, where he was adopted at a young age, for his birthplace in South Korea. There, he teams up with fellow feisty lawyer Hong Cha Young (Jeon Yeo Bin) and her intern Jang Joon Woo (2PM's Taecyeon) to give a conglomerate a taste of its own medicine.
Vincenzo got off to a good start, premiering to an average nationwide rating of 7.7 per cent, the third-highest premiere ratings of any weekend tvN drama to date. As the story continues to unfold when new episodes drop on Netflix weekly, get acquainted with the stellar cast and their characters, and find out where you may have seen them before.
Song Joong Ki as Vincenzo Cassano
An extremely popular Hallyu star, you might have seen a few of Song Joong Ki’s dramas and movies. One of his most famous and swoon-worthy roles is Captain Yoo Si Jin from Descendants of the Sun. In Vincenzo, Song Joong Ki’s character is decidedly different and closer to an anti-hero.
As a consigliere to an Italian mafia, Vincenzo Cassano has questionable ethics and no qualms about using evil tactics to punish evil people. You’ll be able to enjoy a different shade of sexy from Song Joong Ki in Vincenzo, and perhaps a little rom-com action too as he falls in love with Jeon Yeo Been's character, Hong Cha Young.
