Seoul — tvN’s Vincenzo ended on a good note. The finale on May 2 that starred Song Joong Ki and Jeon Yeo Bin achieved the highest viewership ratings of the show’s entire run. The series finale of Vincenzo scored an average nationwide rating of 14.6 per cent and a peak of 16.2 per cent according to Nielsen Korea, taking first place in its time slot across all channels, including public broadcast networks, reported by Soompi.
The drama revolves around Vincenzo Cassano (Song Joong Ki), who is an Italian lawyer and Mafia consigliere. He is of Korean descent but was adopted by an Italian family when he was young.
