Recap: Vincenzo (Episode 10)

Okay, this episode was pretty fun! I really enjoyed watching it. I feel like it got back to the action and thrill of the opening episodes and picked up the pace. It still doesn’t make complete sense, and it did drag in some moments, but at least there weren’t as many dull moments! There were actually a few surprises as well.

PS. Here is a compiled list of organizations dedicated to fighting racism and xenophobia against the AAPI community. Please click on the links below if you would like to learn more:


We open with the incredibly sad scene of the family members in the car. Vincenzo and Cha-young know that this was not a group suicide, this is a homicide. But he cops do not believe them no matter how much Cha-younng tries to convince them.

Well, it turns out that the cops are on the take from Babel Group. Cha-young decides that she is not going to cry about these things anymore, she is going to get even, and the way she is going to get even is by letting vincenzo out of his cage. She tells him he can do whatever he wants and she will back him.

So Vincenzo video tapes the cops counting their bribe money, kidnaps them, and chains them to rolling chairs on the 4th or 5th story of an abandoned construction building. Then he kicks the chair so that it rolls closer and closer to the edge. And I am not talking about itty bitty kicks. He really puts his hip into it so that the men roll and hopefully stop before going over.

Cha-young comes in to give them the last kick to send them over, she even bought new white sneakers for the occasion. She clocks a soccer kick into the chairs and sends it right to the edge. The men are only saved by some concrete sticking out of the floor. They decide to relent and tell Cha-young and Vincenzo everything they know, they will also open up a case into the investigation of the family members deaths.

So they send Vincenzo and team the CCTV video of the family members driving into a tunnel and not coming out until 1+ minutes later even though it only takes a few seconds to get through this tunnel. They also find out that the family members were tased based on neck injuries on their bodies.

At the same time, the building tenants get word about the family members that died and think they could be next because they are keeping Babel from being able to build their building. They decide to take self defense lessons from Chul-wook (cauliflower ear guy) and they also tell Vincenzo and Cha-young that they can help them bring down Babel.

The team decides to release anonymous news reports on YouTube in the style of The King of Mask so that no one will know it is them. It is actually a pretty cool idea that I liked a lot. The only problem is that the Babel team, after watching it, swiftly pulled the plug on the video as well as any organization that reported on it. The Vincenzo team thinks the video still worked because their goal was for Babel to see it and get upset about it.

Vincenzo uses the tenants to terrorize the Babel lawyers by disguising themselves as janitors and putting bloody C’s in Han Seong-huks office, pretending to be a zombie and putting a bloody C on Myung-hee’s favorite washateria, and getting a toy car with a bomb attached to it (a fake bomb but they don’t know that) to chase Chairman Jang Han-seo around. When the bomb went off it sprayed confetti and showed the flag of a C. (It was actually pretty cute).

So now the babel people are on edge, they have had enough, and want to take out the Vincenzo team in one fail swoop. Babel finds out that Vincenzo was a powerful consigliere of the Castano family. Their mark was a C whenever they were going to kill anyone they would send that as a warning or leave it as a signature.

They decide to send real hitmen to take out Vincenzo and stick men to take out the tenants. These stick men are not inept though, they are the ones that kill people if they don’t leave the premises.

Meanwhile, the doctor’s (who was murdered) prosecutor lawyer tells Vincenzo and Cha-young that he wants to work with them. But they both say the prosecutors are corrupt. The prosecutor tries to say that not all of them are, but Vincenzo compares them to a rotten apple and asks if only half of the apple is rotten, would you still call it a rotten apple? Of course, the answer is yes so the prosecutor gets the drift and leaves.

That night, Joon-woo calls Cha-young out of the building and uses the feign of having information for her to lure her away. That is when the stick-men go in to beat everyone up, possibly to death. It is not looking good for the tenants.

But, in a twist, the laundry tailor, Tak Hong-sik, is amazing at fighting! Apparently he used to be some kind of hired fighter for the NIS or something. Perhaps he was a hitman that retired, whatever the case, he takes out his scissors and starts fighting these guys in the hallway with it like he is a mini John Wick. It is random and fabulous and I loved it so much.

The gangsters run away, though the hitmen are still after Vincenzo. Vincenzo knows that hitmen are coming for him, so he lures them to an abandoned tunnel to fight. This time, he is not playing around and brought his gun with him. A shoot out ensues (also John Wick style) and Vincenzo comes out the victor.

All the while, Cha-young went to see Joon-woo, finds out that he just wanted to see her and made up that excuse, so she tells him they have to go find VIncenzo. She hops in a car with Joon-woo and two tenants and they go to the tunnel. They get there right at the end and see Vincenzo walking away the victor. They all hop out of the car and run to him. Cha-young get there first.

Vincenzo tells Cha-young that he knows who the real boss is and looks at Joon-woo.


Okay, if this is the kind of show they want to give me then I will take it. I love this much better than what they have been doing in the past few episodes. Sure thee is some inconsistencies of logic, for instance, the families died by helping Vincenzo and they don’t want anyone else to die so they probably shouldn’t have accepted the help from the tenants. I would have loved if the tenants did it anyway, you know, seeecretly.

I didn’t mention something that happened in this episode which is the landlord, Jo Young-woon, (the one that was in the hospital) is getting fed up with how long it is taking to getting this gold and starts to write an article about the monks. They do not finish that story line this episode though.

I loved the tailor going all secret agent assassin on these fools. His scene was really good. It reminds me of Kung Fu hustle where the tailor in that movie was also a master fighter, so were several of the other tenants (that movie is just fun, watch it).

Hopefully the next couple episodes continue like this because if the episode is fun to watch then I will forgive a few logic questions (only a few, I’m looking at you Sisyphus 😂). Plus, it’s time for Vincenzo to go right after the heart of Babel and attack the bosses. So far they have gone around the bosses and attacked the little people but today they brought the fight right to the chumps in charge and I am here for that.

Also, there was no preview at the end of the episode today. Let us know if you see it or the text preview and we can try and translate it before next week!

    That frst news upload was really funny.But I found the second set of activities to provoke Babel a little bit lame.As a warning, it is okay.
    Villain and prosecutor – loving their performance.
    Overall, I liked episode 9 more as it was more engaging to me.
    I felt in the climax, clever Vincenzo went without any planning to get killed by 3 professional killers.The episode got again into tat slow pace mode taking a lot of tym showing all unnecessary detail. All other provoking methods were useless, yes they put the most reasonable provocative action to the last, all done to extend the time.

    First of all, I really enjoy this show. Especially the little storylines and moments if you don’t watch very carefully you will miss how it’s moving the story forward or give you tiny information. Some examples, when the fake Ceo had someone break into CY’s apartment and he told his brother. He wanted to know his brother’s weak spot. Which is Cha-young. Which is now also Vincenzo, as well. Vincenzo said he will bring the boss to him, which he did because Joon-woo drove Cha-Young to the area. (because both of their weakness is Cha- Young)

      Love this insight Tee! I did not think about the little brother looking for his big brothers weakness. Though it does look like the little brother is getting stronger and has more going on than the secret brother realizes.

      I don’t think Cha Young is really a weak spot after watching the episode of Babel Chemicals case. Yup, something is there, but I don’t think it is that strong. Tat babel chairman is just a psycho and I liked his third reason.
      Yup, vincenzo put the trap – those part of the episode were really good but other all parts it was just like they just want to show somethg for 1 hour 22 minutes, the shows never enters into a thriller mode.

        I agree that the little brother is a bomb just waiting to explode! I think wearing those high-collared shirts with the tie pin placed so close to his throat is all that is holding him back. He acquired that gun for some purpose we have yet to see.

      This is not black comedy dude. This is just over the too comedy.
      There are many better dramas out there as this drama is just a decent performer

    The last 15 minutes of this episodes was good but episode 9 did a better job as it has got less dull moments.
    Well, I found the story was not moving forward much.
    Its turning out like gold was never the main theme.
    Same writer’s fiery priest was on another level, but this drama is not that compelling much.
    Those people who can watch to say how cute SJK is , appreciate those familiar exxagerated comedies – for them this is best.
    Half of the drama finished, this drama is not for a person who needs a compelling storyline, acting and thriller moments. Anyone can predict atleast a basic outline of wats gonna happen next if have already watched some crime kdramas.
    I recommend you Mouse drama, its really good till episode 6.

      Just for the record, this drama is the top performer (along with Penthouse 2 and Revolutionary sisters) in terms of viewership and ratings coming out every week. Its almost an avg 2.5mil viewers every episode just across Korea. Mouse, Sisyphus, Luca etc are all behind. And ep 10 had the top most audience share in Seoul and across Korea last week. In-fact Ep 10 broke Vincenzo’s own record it had set earlier. Vincenzo also has the 3rd highest premiere rating of any weekend drama of the network and 4th highest premiere rating of the network. The drama is currently the 15th highest-rated drama in Korean cable television history.

      Just stating facts. I don’t mean to argue or anything, I’m just glad that people with your opinion on the drama are in minority that’s all ! Have a good day 🙂

        Ratings are great since the show can get more money and the actors can be rewarded for their hard work, though for some reason they aren’t a guarantee on if an international fan will enjoy it or not. It is funny how that happens. Some shows that flop in Korea are international sensations and vice versa.

    The story is not moving forward. 10 episodes could have been easily done in 6 episodes. Taking down Babel in 10 episodes seems too long.

    Drama has its moments of funny and action scenes but overall it’ lacking the suspense.

    Chemistry: I feel this Episode 10 has delivered the chemistry/ connection that I’ve been waiting for between Vincenzo and Cha-Young!! For the first time, yeassss… I can see that Vincenzo is swayed and showing his feeling towards Cha-Young. And we understand from Episode 9 why he appears to be reluctant to admit what he feels, it’s because he thinks he’s unworthy to love others because of his killing and bad things he has done (and will keep doing!) At the end of Episode 10, he lifted his hand and arm to return Cha-Young’s hug… OK, be it not a tight emotional hug, still…. for his character, that was huuuge…. Yeaaassss!!! I’m excited to see how their romance evolve in the next 10 episodes. (Oh well, or maybe nothing will happen in the next 8 episodes then they’ll high five each other in Episode 20 LOL)

    Gold: I’ve given up zzzzz The scene where they showed Mr. Cho frustrated in his car… Hmmm maybe another twist? Maybe Mr. Cho will get impatient, and betray Vincenzo? I love how the tenants slipped twice, saying gold….. then turned it into “… gold…en opportunity”, and another time into gold something else. Ha Ha Ha. I might have missed it, how did they know about the gold? They don’t know the gold belongs to Vincenzo?

    Babel: OMG finally… I think it”s been dragging for too long that it took 10 episodes to reveal Joon-Woo. I have high expectation to see a great open duel between Joon-Woo and Vincenzo! Can I ask, does Joon-Woo like Cha-Young romantically? Also… I want to see Han-Seo to get up and fight against Joon-Woo. Choi Myung-Hee has not done anything scary! Thought she had the “fixer” that she could call anytime to “fix things” for her in the earlier Episodes?

    It has been painfully boring watching Vincenzo. I’ve been watching most of it on fast forward. Taecyeon speaking english makes me cringe. All the many mistakes are pitiful eg son of a “beach” in ep 8.
    Anyways just as I was about to abandon the whole show, episode 10 delivers what I expected from the entire series! The tailor’s fight scene was awesome!!!! Rewinded and rewatched it like 3 times. I was punching the air….yessssss!! Finally.
    Heading to ep 11 and praying they keep delivering.
    Hmmm…maybe tailor Tak should get his own series 😆
