Among other Korean dramas, ‘Vincenzo‘ stands out for its blend of humor, action, and suspense with a series of plot twists that continually surprise fans. Here are five key moments that particularly stood out for their unpredictability and impact on the show’s narrative.
5. Choi Myung-hee’s Vicious Side
Portrayed by Kim Yeo-jin, Choi Myung-hee is not just a typical antagonist but a genuinely ruthless character. Beyond siding with the villains, her decision to orchestrate an attack on Hong Cha-young’s father shows the extreme measures she’s willing to take. This suggests that she has the potential for further malevolence, considering her ongoing conflict with Hong Cha-young.
4. Vincenzo’s Ways of Outsmarting His Enemies
The series frequently shows the strategic talent of Vincenzo, played by Song Joong-ki. A notable moment is when he manipulates a legal case against Babel Chemicals. By introducing himself as an Italian lawyer and a surprise witness and leveraging the wife of Babel’s corrupt medical expert, Vincenzo flips a seemingly hopeless situation in his favor.
3. Geumga Plaza’s Hidden Talents
Initially depicted as unassuming, the residents of Geumga Plaza reveal unexpected combat skills that go beyond their earlier portrayal. Characters like Lee Cheol-wook, played by Yang Kyung-won, and the pawnshop couple have athletic prowess in judo and weightlifting. Tak Hong-sik, the dry cleaner, surprises us with his combat skills using scissors. Using these to add depth to these characters, the show transforms them from background figures into dynamic participants in the storyline.
2. Releasing Wasps to Disturb the Courtroom
In an innovative plot device, the ‘Vincenzo’ team disrupts a courtroom scene to postpone legal proceedings. Their tactics include pretending to faint and causing a blackout, as well as releasing wasps in the courtroom. This strategy, especially using honey water to attract the wasps to the judge, brings a dose of originality and humor into the show.
1. Jang Joon-woo’s Emergence As Babel’s Real CEO
The transformation of Jang Joon-woo from a seemingly innocent intern to the head of Babel Group is one of the drama’s most major twists. His character’s shift from charmingly clumsy to menacingly dangerous presents us with a complex antagonist. This twist not only changes the trajectory of the storyline but also adds a hint of complexity to his relationship with Hong Cha-young.
