In episode 11 of the latest blockbuster Korean drama, Vincenzo, the tenants at Geumga Plaza misunderstood Vincenzo Cassano's title, confusing consigliere (an adviser to the head of an Italian mafia family) for "corn salad". Since then, fans nicknamed Song Joong-ki (who played the role) as Mr Corn Salad or simply, Corn Salad.
It's a bittersweet moment now for Vincenzo fans, with only two more episodes to go before the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards Best Actor nominee, Song Joong-ki and the whole cast bid us "Addio!". Viewers are already anticipating the void the show will leave after it airs its finale on 2 May 2021 9pm (KST).
To ease the sepanx (separation anxiety), we dig around Instagram for some recipes that will remind us that once, there was this "corn salad" that made us cry, laugh and cringe. Buon appetito!
