Will Song Joong-Ki Star Alongside Jeon Yeo-Bin In New K-Drama "Vincenzo?"
They'll be lawyers in love
Will they or won't they?
The Internet is abuzz with rumors about Song Joong-ki and Jeon Yeo-bin who are said to star alongside each other as the leads of new K-Drama Vincenzo. As its name suggests, its story revolves around an Italian mafia consigliere (a.k.a. a top adviser to the baddest boss of a crime organization) who was adopted by a mob boss (presumably the leader of the mafia he works for) but eventually returns to Korea because of unspecified circumstances.
In his rediscovery of his home country, he encounters a greenhorn lawyer, and what ensues between the two is something we've yet to find out!
Avid K-Drama viewers are eager for the news to be confirmed as this marks a fresh pairing.
While Song Joong-ki (Descendants of the Sun, Arthdal Chronicles) and Jeon Yeo-bin (Be Melodramatic, Save Me) both have notable projects under their names and have enjoyed success from electric TV pair-ups in their past projects, Vincenzo marks the first time for the two to work together.
Should the actors agree, Song Joong-ki will be playing the titular character, Vincenzo Casano, and Jeon Yeo-bin will be taking on the role of Atty. Hong Cha-young.
Vincenzo is set to premier in December if production pushes through amidst the pandemic.
The series will be a real treat for K-Drama and Korean film fans who have had to wait longer than usual for new shows to launch. The COVID-19 crisis has reportedly pressed the pause button on several shows and films (including Song Joong-ki's very own Arthdal Chronicles 2 and Bogota, a film shot overseas in Colombia), which means all fingers should be kept crossed for Vincenzo to remain issue-free.
To add more excitement, Vincenzo will be directed by Money Flower's Kim Hee-won and written by Good Manager's Park Jae-bum, so fans can reasonably expect the show to be another K-Drama classic in the making.
So is it going to be a yes or a no for Song Joong-ki and Jeon Yeo-bin? We're definitely hoping for nothing but a yes!
