Meet the Cast of ‘Vincenzo’ + Where You’ve Seen Them Before
As an extremely popular Hallyu star, you have probably seen a few of Song Joong-ki’s dramas and movies by now. 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 Song Joong-ki in ‘Vincenzo’.
Ok Taec-yeon is more known for his masculine and caring characters who often fight against malicious characters or even ghosts like in ‘Bring It On, Ghost‘. The boy band member turned actor showcases a cuter side of himself through his character Jang Joon-woo in ‘Vincenzo’. Jang Joon-woo 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 are a lot of funny and adorable moments to enjoy.
‘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’ and has already acted with Ok Taec-yeon before in ‘Save Me‘. You might also recognize her from the rom-com ‘Be Melodramatic‘. In ‘Vincenzo’, Jeon Yeo-been acts as lawyer Hong Cha-young who prides herself in her ability to win cases. She’s a very strong and confident character, and her quirks are sure to win you over.
There’s plenty of formidable baddies facing Vincenzo and Hong Cha-young. Among them is prosecutor turned lawyer Choi Myung-hee played by Kim Yeo-jin. Choi Myung-hee ends up becoming a senior partner at the law firm Hong Cha-young works at who is not above breaking the law if it means she can achieve her goals. Despite her role in this drama, Kim Yeo-jin has acted as plenty of warm-hearted characters like the thoughtful police officer Lee Hae-gyeong in ‘Extracurricular‘.
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‘. In ‘Vincenzo’, expect to see a 180-degree turn in 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.

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 such as his sympathetic poetry-loving character in ‘Romance is a Bonus Book‘.
