Review: Netflix K-Drama “Vincenzo,” From an Italian Perspective Learn what an Italian thinks of "Vincenzo"—the Netflix K-drama starring Song Joong-ki, Jeon Yeo-been, and Ok Taecyeon. By Silv

Lovely goodbye post from Yoo Jae Myung who played Hong Yu Chan    Apparently, there was a little Song Joong Ki easter egg in this cute scene with Mr Nam looking after the plants

I finally got a poll up! Sorry it took some time - I struggled a bit getting through the first two episodes. But I made it!   Feel free to vote though!   tagging: @rocher22 @

From Korean article in "STAR News" Interview for Taec's Singles photoshoot

Spoiler

The syncro rate between the character Junwoo and myself was very high.

The more I went to the second half of the play, the more I saw other features besides Junwoo's stupid look, so I pay a lot of attention when acting.

Did anyone know what is song name that played in the party in episode 2 ?

I found the video that Vincenzo watches and gives them the idea for the party

https://youtu.be/pF7r67nd8SU

if you are talking about the song that you hear that says "Ciao Ciao amore mio" , the music is sure a tarantella, perhaps Sicilian.

Well, it is definitely interesting to read all the different perspectives in the thread.  I'm very happy to see a lot more positive posts about the premiere episodes:blush:

Sorry to cut your post short, just wanted to highlight the above. That is such a good perspective to justify the way she behaves- a teenager around her dad. Now that you have pointed this out I realise she is mostly eccentric around her dad. Maybe she is more like this since there is no mom in the picture hence her father's approval probably means a lot more to her than we realise right now.

That's my interpretation. It's only when she he is around her Dad she really acts out like an attention-seeking teenager.  Also to a lesser extent around Vincenzo because she is jealous and suspicious of him.  Vincenzo has been there three days and is already has her Dad's trust and attention whilst she can barely get Dad to answer her calls :lol:  She is eccentric but we have seen at work and in Court she is mostly pretty normal.  She is good at her job, she is intelligent and her suspicions about Vincenzo's interest in the building are spot on!  I get why people wish it was toned down but overall I think she is an entertaining and unique female lead. The contrast with the enigmatic, poker faced Vincenzo and their bickering back and forth is so fun. I am positive her character will evolve over the course of the drama anyway.

 

I also wondered about Cha Young's mother.  No pictures in the house and I can't see anything about her mother on the official page.  Hong Yoo Chan's character profile mentions something about a wife and custody case but I don't understand because the Google translate isn't clear.

Hello!

 

New member here. Been a fan of SJK since Nice Guy/The Innocent Man days. I’ve followed all his projects and the thing I love about Vincenzo is it’s yet another different role that SJK is challenging. The good and evil aspect makes him stand out from your usual kdrama hero and I’m looking forward to seeing how his schemes are executed. I hope they stick with the “an eye for an eye” trope and not make him change solely to uphold the role of the main protagonist. 
 

My two cents on the drama so far, I can definitely do without the obnoxious humor which I know this writer is famous for. Nonetheless I’m willing to see it through. I’m invested enough in Vincenzo as a character and him becoming allies with the father and daughter duo. Speaking of which, do any of you think there will be a love line between Vincenzo and Hong Cha Young? I know many of you can’t stand her and I, too, think she can afford to tone it down a couple notches here and there. But overall, I like that her character is eccentric and fun contrary to the typical prim and proper female leads. JYB is also lovely and the dynamic between Vincenzo and HCY will certainly be a fun one to watch, at the very least. Not to mention how beautiful the two look so it’d be a waste to walk away without a love line in my opinion. And slightly because I’ve been deprived of SJK in an actual love type drama since DOTS so I’m really hoping the writer comes through despite his past dramas not having any love lines. 
 

It’s interesting reading reviews on here and reading reviews everywhere else. It’s as though you’re watching completely different dramas. Everyone else seems pleased and harping about how great it is while everyone here is either indifferent, dislike it, or confused lol. But I understand everyone has their own taste/opinions. Despite the varying reviews from international viewers, I’m glad it’s being well received in Korea. I hope the ratings will be as high or surpass that of its predecessor Mr Queen. Because of course I want to see nothing but success for SJK! He’s doing a great job per usual and I can’t wait to see the story unfold.

 

 

I really do admire Song Joong Ki for making an effort to challenge himself with different roles. Regarding your question, I believe Vincenzo will have a love line with Cha Young as he drama description states that Vincenzo falls in love ini Korea:wub:  I'm already feeling some sparks even though they don't like or trust each other yet!:sparklyeyes:

 

The scenes with Vincenzo and Hong Yoo Chan bonding were some of my favourites.  Yoo Jae Myung is such a good actor.  I have only seen him playing villains so it's nice to have him playing a good and selfless character like Papa Hong. This was one of the cutest moments and, apparently, it was an adlib:w00t:

 

Making video for Episodes 1 and 2

Lots of fun on set.  It always makes me wonder how cold they must be in costume when the BTS they are wearing big padded coats The cameos from Jung Soon Won, Jin Seon Kyu and Lee Hee Joon were very funny:lol:

Taecyeon Shares Updates On 2PM’s Comeback, Insights Into His Role In “Vincenzo,” And More

10ca1ea5a4804cbea545eaca6a849154.jpeg?s=

 

Feb 24, 2021

Just two months into the new year, 2PM’s Taecyeon has quite a busy agenda!

After his 2020 drama “The Game: Towards Zero” wrapped up, he filmed the movie “Hansan,” which is set to be released in 2021. Now, in the midst of filming “Vincenzo,” the idol-turned-actor teamed up with Singles magazine for a pictorial and interview.

In “Vincenzo,” Taecyeon plays an intern named Jang Joon Woo who joins forces with an Italian lawyer and Mafia consigliere (Song Joong Ki) and a sharp-tongued lawyer (Jeon Yeo Bin) to take down villains who cannot be punished by the court of law.

On his character Jang Joon Woo, Taecyeon commented, “When I first received the script, I thought to myself, ‘Wait, I think I need to do this,’ because Joon Woo’s character was so in sync with who I am in real life. He even appears on an electric scooter in his first scene, which made me feel like someone had secretly filmed me in real life. But as the story progresses, there is more to Joon Woo than his awkward and aloof side, so I am paying a lot of attention to my acting.”

Taecyeon also stated that one of the joys of acting is that he gets to break stereotypes with his different characters.

Vincenzo was like '' what was that''   :lol:

 

 

That scene in Yoo Chan's  house also made me laugh.

Vincenzo was speechless.

Cha Young talked to herself, removed those photos from the wall, and then she took his plate

from the table.   :D

 

 

 

Yep, its self-confidence      :approves:

Surprisingly liking this show even the humour and the wacky aspect. I just can't take SJK seriously with his baby face (maybe the make-ups not helping) as a Mafia haha. Still it's nice to have SJK back on the small screen especially since Arthdal chronicles s2 is never going to happen at this rate :(

Surprisingly I can take him seriously as a Mafia, unlike when he played the army captain. Especially next to the other guy, who was his junior, but looked 5 years older LOL (re: DOTS).

 

Perhaps, because the Italian suits look really good on him. and well, there is no determined age for rank within the mafia organisation? At least, we don't know how he got there. I assumed because he was adopted and then groomed, which was why he got the consigliere position, despite his young age. Because he was there from the beginning and loyal.

Some thoughts about Vincenzo ep 1 and 2.

 

I'm not gonna lie, I had some issues getting through the first 2 episodes. Especially ep 2. I hope the pace will pick up as the story progresses, though. So will continue for now. :kiss_wink:

 

Pros

  • Some very interesting and intriguing characters in this drama. I am liking some of them more than others. The people I find the most intriguing at the moment are:
    • The NIS agent - what a cute puppy! :love: I can't believe he was even ready to fund the investigation into Vincenzo from his own pocket. He's funny and I like him. 
    • The ex-prosecutor. Does she kick "behind" or what? I'm in awe! I think she's definitely hiding something. She will either screw over Wuhan big time or she'll turn out to be the biggest con-man of them all!
    • Paolo - what a hot Italian dude. :dorakiss:I hope we get to see him in more episodes. A girl can dream, can't she?
    • Taecyeon's intern character - I mean he seems really goofy and cute, but why do I have a sneaking suspicion it's all an act? I even thought about the fact that he might be the Chairman's (played by Kwak Dong Yeon) brother and that he might be the guy in the hockey scene.....
    • You know you have been watching too many psychological thrillers when you're even suspecting the monk. :joy:
  • The cinematography is spot on. Not sure about the music, but the visual effects are good!
  • I am laughing at Taec's character speaking random English words. What a cutie pie!
  • Also, poor Chef Toto who can't even cook Italian food... :bawling: The scenes are still funny though. :joy:
  • I am liking the father - daughter relationship, with one being "good" and the other one "evil". I think there is a high possibility that the father will be killed at some point in the drama, and the daughter will switch sides and fight for his legacy... Let's see!
  • Vincenzo's clothes and hairstyle - very Italian - well done!

 

Cons

  • While I do appreciate SJK's efforts at speaking Italian, it unfortunately leaves a lot to be desired. He does get some words right with the correct intonation, but sadly the rest of the words come out with a thick Korean accent. I even noticed him mispronouncing his own name Vincenzo incorrectly at some point in ep 2..... :wacko: Not talking about he scene where he ordered "ree-cho-tto" :w00t:
    Also, all the Italian mannerisms and gesticulations are missing.
    I don't want to criticize him too much, because I understand it wouldn't be easy for a Korean to sound Italian and he has clearly worked hard for the part. I just do think that there might have been actors who could have pulled this part of the story off a more believably? I could be wrong, of course.
  • Seeing the truck of doom already in ep 1 was... yeah.... no words. :unamused:
  • Also, as much as I love Taecyeon, I just can't with his skipping.... :partyblob:

For ep 3 and 4, I hope we get to see a lot more of Kwak Dong Yeon ! :heart:

So here my thoughts on the first 2 episodes. 

 

So firstly I really had higher expectations from this drama, knowing who the writer is and his previous works, I had already expected some comedy to be there, but it was not on point like the ones in Chief Kim and Fiery Priest. The FL could be compared to Lee Ha Nee's character in Fiery Priest, but the later one did a better job in portraying it, and at the same time I didn't find it over acting, and looked like the character was that way, here the FL is just overacting, and I believe the script is making the actress do it. 

 

Coming back to the drama, I would have liked it if Vincenzo was shown to be more interesting guy, maybe, maybe it is with the execution here, and I think it is too early to judge this character. Still, I didn't find him that interesting yet. Although there are a couple of characters who seem to be interesting here. The female prosecutor who just joined the law form and Taecyeon's character. These two might seem to be opposite, and maybe opposite in what they actually are too.

 

The female prosecutor seems to be the kind of woman who would be the master mind for the evil dude and make things tough for the leads, but she could have a hidden agenda of her own against Babel group too. Taecyeon's character on the other hand seems to be too good, but he actually could be the main baddie here. Why? First thing, his and Kwak Dong Yeon's surnames are same, and we saw him getting hit in the hockey ground, meaning there is definitely someone above him, and it could actually be Taecyeon's character who could be his brother. 

 

The characters I liked were the Fake Italian Chef (poor guy), the NIS Agent (once again poor guy), the lawyer representing the people of the building and Kim Yoon Hye's character, I am simple man, I see Kim Yoon Hye, I fall for her in that drama :heart2beat:

 

The FL is too unlikeable right now. Has got some serious moral issues, like a LOT. So for now I am not liking her. I think, there is a high chance for her dad to die. In dramas like this the guys getting too involved in such cases and causing problems for the bad guys either die (like in Fiery Priest), or just go in coma after attempt to be killed (like in Chief Kim). So I see a major death flag over his head. What are your thoughts on it Chingus? Looking forward to reading your posts.

The likelihood of the dad dying is very possible. Aside from how the drama has shown his intentions of standing up for the powerless and poor/meddling with the bad guys’ businesses/carelessly putting himself in danger’s way, I couldn’t help but notice Yoo Jae Myung was not present for the poster shooting. He’s a big actor and from what we see so far, an important character, so I don’t see another reason why he wouldn’t have been included except that he gets killed off early on. Perhaps his death will be the reasoning for HCY to reevaluate her morals and join hands with Vincenzo in taking down the bad guys. It’ll show character development and hopefully we will get less of her caricature acting and a more serious vulnerable side with just enough sass where it’s needed. *fingers crossed*
