Vincenzo -- Episode 6: A Taste of their Own Medicine

G Plaza, Vincenzo, and Lawyer Cha are the best combo ever. Their court theatrics were hilarious, the best I've seen in a while. I laughed so hard. Lee Cheol Wook (Yang Kyung Won) and his wife Jang Yeon Jin (Seo Ye Hwa) crack me up the most. Splashing the honey water on the corrupt judge and letting the hornets loose on him will be my favorite moment in this drama for a while to come.

I love the camaraderie between the residents; they click like one big family; even if they fight amongst each other, they always have each other's back. It was good to see Woosung have a taste of their own medicine. Add to that, Ahn Ki Seok, he and his boss, must be the best NIS agents ever.


The moment I had been waiting for finally here; flashbacks of Vincenzo's childhood and the anger and resentment he holds back. Vincenzo and his mom, Oh Kyung Ja (Yoon Bok In), had me deep in my emotions today. Even the strongest have a weak link that holds them down despite their best efforts. As much as I sympathized with Vincenzo, I felt for his mother ten folds. Giving up a child to afford them a better life must be one of the hardest decisions any parent makes, compounded by the fact the child would never understand it. No truer words were spoken like Monk Jeokha's (Ri Woo Jin) to Vincenzo -- to overcome anger, stand your ground, fight back, and enlightenment is what you get when you've won that battle. I felt Vincenzo's mother's sadness but at the same time her pride in her son. I hope they reconcile before the end.

I was surprised Jung Jun Woo decided to reveal himself so soon, but I understand why there's, but so much he can do as a mere intern or partner. As they say, if you want things done the right way, you have to do them yourself. I knew Woosung, helmed by Myung Hee and edged on by Jang Jun Woo, would bite back and strong, but Vincenzo is no fool; I knew he would figure Jun Woo out but more so that he was always ten steps ahead of the enemy -- mafia style. I love everybody on this show, but I must admit Song Joong Ki far exceeds my expectation of him as Vincenzo. Watch Episode 6 here.

Yeah those court scenes were hilarious. Also when Vincenzo was checking in the temple and NIS agent thought he is bowing to the God. Two things I liked - the young Vincent was good in acting (thought it was 2 minutes) and the Monk carrying the cross. Nice. This series gives me a bit of Fiery Priest vibes. And yes, Song Jong Ki is really playing as Vincent Cassano very well. Now even I feel he is Korean Italian lol.

Yes, it's crazy how you picked up that vibe, but yeah, the director has a certain style that comes through in all his work. I am so excited for Kim Nam Gil, he is a great method actor, and I love all his work. You should check him out in Bad Guy, Shark, and Live Up to Your Name. I am very excited about Island, especially since it has already been pegged for another season, and to have both Nam Gil and Seo Ye Ji now that's going to be special.
