Fueled with seasoned and remarkable actors, Vincenzo will surely amaze you with its lineup of heroes and villains. Find out more about the main actors – their characters and which dramas you’ve seen them before in this feature.
Song Joong Ki
As 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 the actor in Vincenzo.
Jeon Yeo Been
Vincenzo is Jeon Yeo-been’s third drama, but she’s actually been in over 15 films. She rose in acclaim following her award-winning turn in the movie After My Death. Also, she acted with Ok Taecyeon before through Save Me. Her most recent drama is Be Melodramatic.
Her nuanced portrayal of a woman who has post-traumatic stress disorder following her boyfriend’s passing proved she can be an absolute gem in a drama too. In Vincenzo, Jeon Yeo-been acts as lawyer Hong Cha-young who prides herself in her ability to win cases. She has a strong and confident character and quite brimming with amusing quirks too.
Ok Taecyeon is more known for his masculine and caring characters who often fight against malicious characters or even ghosts like in Bring It On, Ghost. Interestingly, he will be able to showcase a cuter side of himself through his character in Vincenzo.
Suiting up to the role of Jang Joon-woo, he is an intern lawyer who works with Hong Cha-young and has a huge crush on her. He’s a bit clumsy and ditzy, so there should be some funny and adorable moments to enjoy. It’ll be interesting to see if a love triangle will ensue!
Kim Yeo Jin
There’s plenty of formidable baddies facing Vincenzo and Hong Cha-young. Among them, Kim Yeo Jin portrays prosecutor turned lawyer Choi Myung-hee in Vincenzo. Choi Myung-hee ends up becoming a senior partner at the law firm Hong Cha-young works at. She’s not above breaking the law if it means she can achieve her goals.
While she will be an aggravating foe in this drama, Kim Yeo-jin has acted as plenty of warm-hearted characters like the thoughtful police officer Lee Hae-gyeong in Extracurricular.
Kwak Dong Yeon
Having debuted as a teenager, Kwak Dong Yeon usually portrays kind characters like friendly and compassionate teaching assistant Yeon U-yeong in My ID Is Gangnam Beauty. He also recently showed a comical and touching cameo in It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.
We’ll see a 180-degree turn with his character Jang Han-seo who is Babel Group’s CEO. The head of the conglomerate is infamous for being a bit crazy and obsessive with winning. He’ll do anything to get revenge and what he wants, even at the cost of someone’s life.
Cho Han Cheul
Rounding out the group of evil opponents is Han Seung Hyuk who is the head of the law firm Hong Cha-young works at. Having strong ties with the prosecution and the media, Han Seung-hyuk is accustomed to winning cases for his wealthy clients. He utilizes underhanded methods to turn people who oppose him into dust.
While his character might not be your favorite lawyer in Vincenzo, actor Cho Han Cheul has played a wide spectrum of roles and you might recognize his sympathetic poetry-loving character from Romance Is a Bonus Book.
Don’t miss out on this epic story! Vincenzo has new episodes every Saturday and Sunday available two hours after the Korean broadcast, only on Netflix!
