Netflix’s Vincenzo is continuously expanding its plot. We have seen in episode 12 how some pieces in the narrative are coming together with the revelation of Wang Shaolin and how he holds the Guillotine file that can incriminate major players in the Korean Government. The tenants of Geumga Plaza are also unfolding their secrets one by one and the fight over the gold hidden beneath the Nanyak Temple is getting more interesting and intense by the day with betrayals starting to take place.
But what caught my attention the most is Teacyeon’s superb portrayal as the real boss behind Babel. Before his true identity was revealed, he was this funny and unsuspecting understudy of Cha-young who simply wants to become a partner at Wusang Firm. But when his mask was removed, we saw how opposite he is from Jang Joon-woo. As the real villain puppeteer we witnessed how he is cruel with no remorse.
How Taecyeon performed the two very opposite roles in this series is very worthy of credit. His naivety as Jang Joon-woo is very well contrasted with the ruthlessness and uncanny of Jang Han-seok. For someone who has only seen Teacyeon act in this series alone, I am impressed. The way he hides his villainy in a character that’s very unsuspecting created a sense of mystery and a different mood quality in the drama.
However, since he is already unmasked as we have seen towards the end of episode 12 when he made the announcement in the company’s tower bidding that he is the real boss behind Babel, the whole narrative has taken a different turn. We can expect that Taecyeon’s character will go full force as the main evil. With his duality seemingly out of the window, conflict build-up will be more interesting and more direct. Power struggles in this drama are certainly upped a notch. We just have to wait for the next episode and see who gets the upper hand this time.

Fun fact: Taecyeon is a member of JYP Entertainment’s 2PM who are the real K-Pop OGs for sexiness and hotness!
