Upcoming tvN drama “Vincenzo” will tell the story of Italian lawyer and Mafia consigliere Vincenzo Cassano, who moves back to Korea due to a conflict within his organization and gets involved with the tough lawyer Hong Cha Young. Together, they achieve justice utilizing methods used by the villains. The drama will bring catharsis to viewers as the dark heroes go head to head with the true villains who cannot be brought down using lawful methods.
Director Kim Hee Won of “Money Flower” and “The Crowned Clown” will join hands with screenwriter Park Jae Bum, who previously wrote “Good Manager” and “The Fiery Priest,” to create “Vincenzo.”
Song Joong Ki will play the Italian lawyer and Mafia consigliere Vincenzo Cassano, who is of Korean descent and was adopted by an Italian family at a young age. Equipped with unparalleled negotiation skills and charisma, Vincenzo Cassano lives for revenge. He discovers a deep-rooted, villainous cartel upon his arrival in Korea, and he finds himself solving the issue when he becomes involved with Hong Cha Young, a lawyer who will do anything to win a case.
Played by Jeon Yeo Bin, Hong Cha Young is the ace lawyer at Korea’s best law firm Woosang. She is more attentive to how advantageous or disadvantageous of a situation someone is in, rather than whether they are good or evil. She begins to change after she meets Vincenzo Cassano.
Taecyeon, who was previously confirmed to star in the drama, takes on the role of Jang Jun Woo, a handsome and intelligent intern at a legal firm who has experience living abroad. He is characterized by a carefree smile and a slightly clumsy and odd personality. He has absolute trust in Hong Cha Young, his senior at work, and the appearance of Vincenzo Cassano triggers his competitive spirit.
The drama’s production team shared, “‘Vincenzo’ is a black comedy about the dark heroes who punish the ‘evil’ by using the ways of the villains. The synergy between the unique characters is just as crucial to the drama as its creative theme and dynamic plot. The perfect lineup of actors who will maximize each character’s traits and bring them to reality is now complete. You can look forward to it.”
According to Ilgan Sports, the drama’s cast lineup also includes Yang Kyung Won, Kim Yeo Jin, and Kwak Dong Yeon, among others. The news outlet also reported that the actors gathered for their first script reading on August 9.
“Vincenzo” is slated to premiere in the first half of 2021.
