TV Review: Vincenzo (2021) (Crime Drama)

Vincenzo (빈센조)
20 episodes
Crime Drama

During a visit to his motherland, a Korean-Italian mafia lawyer gives an unrivaled conglomerate a taste of its own medicine with a side of justice. (Synopsis)

Vincenzo was a highly enjoyable series that was essentially a serious crime drama but which also included a good dose of humour along the way. Vincenzo was a wonderfully morally grey character who I fell in love with right from the start. I was less taken with the romance element of the plot, but since it was a fairly minor component that wasn't a major problem. One thought I couldn't shake throughout, though, was that if someone who spoke Italian had created the Hangeul rendering of his name, they would have made it 빈첸소, and then all the issues of no one in Korea being able to pronounce it properly could have been avoided. Although, I guess that added to the humour at times too! That little niggle aside this was an entertaining and memorable drama that I recommend to fans of crime dramas. It gets 4.5 stars from me.
