The main trio for upcoming tvN drama Vincenzo has been decided. Song Joong-ki (Arthdal Chronicles), Jeon Yeo-bin (Be Melodramatic), and Taecyeon (The Game: Towards Zero) have been confirmed for this mafia drama.
Song Joong-ki is set to play a mafia consigliere who escapes to Korea from Italy because of internal strife within the organization. He was the cold, logical master strategist and lawyer for the mafia, Vincenzo Casano. Belying his sweet appearance, he’s big on revenge.
Once in Korea, he ends up teaming with an ace lawyer who works for the biggest law firm in the country. She’s played by Jeon Yeo-bin, and together, they work to creatively punish corrupt, slippery villains by operating with methods outside the bounds of the law. Jeon Yeo-bin’s character is so tenacious that she would even sell her soul to catch these drug cartel villains. She’s Machiavellian about her ways to achieve her end goal, weighing the pros and cons rather than deciding on right and wrong.
Taecyeon will be playing an intern lawyer from overseas who wishes to be Jeon Yeo-bin’s “James Bond.” He has a macho appearance, but an adorably clumsy personality. He follows his preceptor, Jeon Yeo-bin, with faithfulness until Vincenzo shows up and revs up his hidden competitive side.
Vincenzo, written by Park Jae-bum (Fiery Priest) and directed by Kim Hee-won (The Crowned Clown), is tentatively scheduled to air in the first half of 2021.
