LIST: Meet the cast of Netflix K-drama 'Vincenzo'

MANILA, Philippines — Song Joong-ki returns to being the tough guy after his hiatus in the Netflix fantasy series "Arthdal Chronicles" in 2019.

In the recently premiered "Vincenzo," Song Joongki is a Korean-Italian mafia lawyer who is out to exact vengeance on an erring conglomerate. He is not the only one to look out for in this action-thriller. His co-stars in the show also led credible performances that will excite viewers. Find out where you've seen the cast of the drama.

Song Joong-ki

As an extremely popular Hallyu star, you might have seen a few of Song Joong-ki’s dramas and movies. 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.

Song Joong-ki needs no further introduction as one of the most popular Hallyu stars today. Everybody who is into K-drama knows he is the other famous Captain apart from Capt. Ri of "Crash Landing On You." He's the romantic Capt. Yoo Si-jin from the 2016 hit "Descendants of the Sun."

The tables are now turned with Joong-ki playing an anti-hero in the series. As a consigliere to an Italian mafia, Vincenzo Cassano has questionable ethics and no qualms about using evil tactics to punish evil people. Watch Joongki essay a complicated character in "Vincenzo" just like his past roles in "Innocent Man" and "Arthdal Chronicles."

Jeon Yeo-been

"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." Also, she acted with Ok Taec-yeon before through "Save Me." Drama fans, however, might recognize her from rom-com "Be Melodramatic." Her nuanced portrayal of a woman who has post-traumatic stress disorder following her boyfriend’s passing proved she can be an absolute gem in a drama, too.

Jeon Yeo-been is a known gem in Korean cinema. A relative new comer who debuted in 2015, she fast gained a reputation as a promising actress with fine performances in movies and film. In 2018, she was named Actress of the Year at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival and earned the Independent Star Award at the 2017 Seoul Independent Film Festival for her performance in the mystery drama "After My Death."

In "Vincenzo", she reunites with her "Save Me" co-star Ok Taec-yeon. In her newest series, Jeon Yeo-been acts as lawyer Hong Cha-young who prides herself in her ability to win cases.

Ok Taec-yeon

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 boyband-member-turned-actor will be able to showcase a cuter side of himself through his character Jang Joon-woo in "Vincenzo."

Korea's favorite "model soldier" and "Captain Korea" stars in another thriller after "Save Me." A genre he is comfortable in like the fantasy thriller "Bring It On, Ghost," the 2PM boyband member and main rapper 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 should be some funny and adorable moments to enjoy.

Kim Yeo-jin

There’s plenty of formidable baddies facing Vincenzo and Hong Cha-young. Among them, Kim Yeo-jin portrays prosecutor turned lawyer Choi Myung-hee in "Vincenzo." Choi Myung-hee ends up becoming a senior partner at the law firm Hong Cha-young works at. While she will be an aggravating foe in this drama, Kim Yeo-jin has acted as plenty of warm-hearted characters like the thoughtful police officer Lee Hae-gyeong in "Extracurricular."

She is among Korea's notable character actors with a filmography that includes works in film, TV and theater. Kim Yeo-jin has acted in titles popular to international K-drama fans like "Love in the Moonlight," "My Secret Terrius," "Itaewon Class" and "Extracurricular."

In the mafia thriler, Kim Yeo-jin portrays prosecutor turned lawyer Choi Myung-hee who ends up becoming a senior partner at the law firm Hong Cha-young works at. She’s not above breaking the law if it means she can achieve her goals.

Kwak Dong-yeon

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."

K-dramaland's favorite and trusty buddy Kwak Dong-yeon is turning 360-degrees in "Vincenzo." If fans were gushing over him as their favorite swordsman in "Love in the Moonlight" or as the friendly and compassionate teaching assistant Yeon U-yeong in "My ID Is Gangnam Beauty," they'll be intrigued with him as Jang Han-seo, Babel Group’s Chief Executive Officer (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.

Cho Han-cheul

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," Cho Han-cheul has played a wide spectrum of roles and you might recognize his sympathetic poetry-loving character from "Romance Is a Bonus Book."
