Spoiler Alert : This article contains spoiler about the ending of "Vincenzo"

“Vincenzo” has officially ended with a total of 20 episodes and left a remarkable impact on the viewers! Fans are left awestruck imploring for a second season already! Vincenzo enacted by Song JoongKi has been presented as an ambiguous figure throughout the series. He kills for vengeance and covets for his own greed. The character is humanized by Song JoongKi's expressive eyes, and his penchant for violence is veiled by his dapper appearance, smooth gait and incredible good looks.

The finale episode shows a lot of deaths - from the bad guys getting killed to near-deaths in the Geumga Plaza gang to the loss of Jang HanSeo aka Kwak DongYeon as he dies in Vincenzo’s arms. Chief Prosecutor Han essayed by Jo HanChul is also executed by Jang JunWoo played by Ok TaecYeon on the courtroom steps, in spite of  Vincenzo, the consigliere sparing his life. "Vincenzo"’s ending episode also teased the premise of Hong ChaYoung aka Jeon YeoBeen being killed, before Jang HanSeo saved her life by taking on the fatal bullet. Around three-quarters of the way through, the endgame was already in focus and by this point it was clear that Babel and Wusang were no match for Vincenzo, the Korean-Italian mafia lawer. The man smoothly wraps up, with Choi MyungHee enacted by Kim YeoJin and Jang JunWoo receiving befitting torture and subsequent death for their crimes.

Vincenzo narrates how the spear of atonement would work. The mechanical drill would pierce Jang JunWoo for 5 mm until noon the next day, when it would finally reach his lung leading to instant death 24 hours later. The ending shows JunWoo lying immobile the next day, leaving the viewer to decide if he’s really dead or ready for a comeback in case "Vincenzo" season 2 is announced. So, the consigliere viciously tortures and kills his enemies, doesn’t repent and then finds true love’s kiss in the final scene.

In the epilogue Vincenzo makes sure to mention that he continues to be a villain - one that cleans up the scum of the earth and will keep doing so. For as long as evil exists, so will he. While it is a clean ending, episode 20 is definitely not the end. Now, whether this narrative will mature into a second season is not known to us. We just have to wait and watch. As of now, enjoy the CGI magic that has been used for all the shots of Italy in "Vincenzo"

The protagonist has been presented as an ambiguous figure throughout the series. He kills for vengeance and covets for his own greed. He is honourable but not above playing as dirty as, or sometimes worse than his adversaries and yet, "Vincenzo" is played by Song Joongki, the ultimate Korean heartthrob. The character is humanised by his expressive eyes, and his penchant for violence is veiled by his dapper appearance, smooth gait and incredible good looks. However, being part of the mafia doesn’t necessarily mean you have the upper hand in a game of Mafia as well. "Vincenzo" stars, the awesome threesome, Song Joongki, Jeon YeoBeen and Ok TaecYeon try to outwit each other for some exclusive Netflix swag in this fun game!

"Vincenzo" is thrilling, fun and satisfying. The twists and turns are endless. It definitely takes the cake for suspense, drama and the laughs. Take it for what it is, a slick and gloriously over the top K-Drama. It is the perfect stress-buster for anyone looking out for a simple and fulfilling piece of entertainment. With fine production quality and a range of breathtaking performances, "Vincenzo" truly turns out to be a game changer.

News has it that the finale episode of this drama achieved its highest viewership ratings, scoring an average of 14.6% in nationwide rating and a highest percentage of 16.2%. While it scored an average of 16.6% in Seoul metropolitan area and garnered the highest mark of 18.4% in total, making it in the first place among the series in the same time slot across all the channels. "Vincenzo"’s ratings also went on to achieve 6th highest ratings in tvN history & retains its spot in Netflix’s Top 10
