“Vincenzo” aired its final episode!
It’s been a few weeks now since “Vincenzo” aired its final episode. Many fans were torn and emotional about having to move on from Vincenzo and his Geumga Plaza crew. The series put viewers on an emotional rollercoaster, and although it may be hard to move on, there are a lot of K-dramas out there that might be able to help lessen this pain. If you loved “Vincenzo,” here are some other shows you can check out.
Writer Park Jae Bum
Park Jae Bum has been writing K-dramas for over 10 years now, and his repertoire is a successful one. There was a lot of anticipation and high expectations when it was announced that he would be coming out with a mafia-based K-drama and that the leading man would be none other than Song Joong Ki. If you liked the large supporting crew and humor that was in “Vincenzo,” it is definitely worth it to check out some of his other hit K-dramas.
“Good Doctor” stars Joo Won as Park Shi On, a doctor who has autism. Although he is considered to have the social awareness of a 10 year old, he is a genius and becomes a successful pediatric surgeon. He is put in a hospital with Kim Do Han (Joo Sang Wook), another pediatric surgeon, and the two often argue about various cases.
The series was not only a huge success in South Korea, but it also gained international recognition; the U.S. did a remake of it and it recently got renewed for its 5th season. Park Jae Bum also won the Best Writer award at the Korea Drama Awards in 2013 and a lot of the cast was able to receive best actor awards that same year. One of the most notable aspects is that the drama was given a plaque and award for raising awareness about autism.
Another massive success from Park Jae Bum was “Good Manager.” The series stars Namgoong Min as Kim Sung Ryong, a former accountant for gangs who stumbles into working as the chief of accounting in a big company. He fights to keep the company afloat while meeting friends and enemies along the way.
The series started off strong and the ratings only continued to climb with each week. Viewers couldn’t get enough of Namgoong Min’s quirky character as well as his budding bromance with Seo Yool (Junho). The bromance between the two became a hot topic, and they even snagged the best couple award at the KBS Drama Awards in 2017.
The talented and beautiful Jeon Yeo Been
For those who have watched Jeon Yeo Been’s past works, it’s no secret that she’s a phenomenal actress who is finally getting the recognition she deserves. Her role as Hong Cha Young in “Vincenzo” was very quirky with her spurts of dancing and higher-than-life personality – she did not disappoint. If you’re looking for more of Jeon Yeo Been, these are some of her other projects to check out.
“Melo Is My Nature”
Jeon Yeo Been stars in “Melo Is My Nature” as Lee Eun Jung, a woman who is 30 years old and a director of documentaries. She has two best friends, Im Jin Joo (Chun Woo Hee) and Hwang Han Joo (Han Ji Eun). The series documents the hardships of life and love as these three women all face various obstacles together.
Probably the most notable drama of Jeon Yeo Been before “Vincenzo” was “Melo Is My Nature.” Her character from the latter drama is very different from that of Hong Cha Young. Lee Eun Jung is calm, dark, and has a very quiet but strong demeanor. Her character in this series was the one that caught the eyes of many, thanks to her subtle, but strong and impressionable role. It’s an underrated drama that was made memorable as a result of the cast and their incredible acting!
