If you are looking for a comedic, thrilling, creative, and oddly-satisfying drama to brighten your watching hours, then Vincenzo is it! It was an addictive series.
There is a good-mix of lovable characters and crazy evil villains. All the actors and actresses are perfect in their respective roles and bring the characters to life.
Squad goals: The Cassano Geumga Family
Ok Taec Yeon is amazing in his dual portrayal of the foolish apprentice and the evil CEO. His display of both personalities is amazing.
Kwak Dong Yeon is superb in his portrayal of the character of Jang Han Seo.
The main leads partnership is just everything, they’ll definitely become an iconic duo in the k-drama world.
Song Joong Ki as Vincenzo was just phenomenal here. He literally slayed the role and was really cool in all his fighting scenes! He is the perfect blend of raw toughness and a kind heart.
I actually liked the ending. Satisfying ending.
My Overall Rating – 8.5/10 (The show was not perfect but I was perfectly entertained.)
