In Vincenzo‘s finale, Song Joong Ki punished evil with evil. And the episode ranked 6th in tvN’s TV series rating history.
tvN’s weekend series Vincenzo aired its final episode on May 2nd. According to Nielsen Korea, this particular episode recorded 16.6% to 18.4% in the metropolitan areas and 14.6% to 16.2% nationwide. Not only is this the series’ best record, but it’s also tvN’s 6th-highest record.
Mafia Vincenzo (Song Joong Ki) punished villains in a villain’s way. As they faced Vincenzo’s fury, Jang Joon Woo (Ok Taec Yeon), Choi Myung Hee (Kim Yeo Jin), and Han Seung Hyuk (Jo Han Chul) all saw a horrible ending. A year later, there were still villains in the world who were worse than the mafia. Furthermore, Hong Cha Young (Jeon Yeo Been) fought with them in her own intense and persistent method.
Geumga Plaza tenants continued on their “normal” lives. The series ended in a perfect happy ending as Vincenzo, and Hong Cha Young confirmed their feelings with a sweet kiss.
However, some viewers are expressing their discomfort about Vincenzo‘s finale. One viewer wrote referring to the episode, “Some scenes were for R-rated movies, but they aired it without even a warning.”
He listed all the “violent” scenes in the episode, saying, “People were stabbed, the woman was set on fire, the guy’s heart was drilled while he was alive, then he was eaten alive by crows.” The writer then wrote that not only was this “out of Vincenzo’s character that the writer had built up the past 19 episodes” but also “overly violent.”
More people agreed to his post. Here are some of the comments: “It was thrilling.” “It was truly a mafia revenge.” “That was over the line.” “Just because they kill characters in a gruesome way, that doesn’t viewers are satisfied.” “That was dirty.” “The Vincenzo character collapsed.”
