Actress Jeon Yeo-bin mentioned actor Song Joong-ki and PD Kim Hee-won, who worked with her in the tvN drama “Vincenzo” (written by Park Jae-beom, directed by Kim Hee-won).
In a recent interview with StarNews, Jeon Yeo-bin recalled her experience filming “Vincenzo.” “Vincenzo” tells the story of an Italian mafia lawyer who came to Korea after betraying his organization and worked with a mean veteran lawyer to beat villains in a villainous way.
The actress played the role of Hong Cha-young, a lawyer with the devil’s tongue and witch’s persistence, and is full of coolness and strength. The bloodless and tearless Hong Cha-young solves the case with Vincenzo Cassano (played by Song Joong-ki) regardless of the methods.
The filming site of “Vincenzo” is well-known for its friendly atmosphere. The cast mentioned each other in interviews, and Song Joong-ki also recommended appearing on tvN’s variety show “The Game Caterers” to make memories with the cast as he could not have a get-together with them due to virus infection. Jeon Yeo-bin said, “The set was like a playground. Even if it was not someone’s own shoot, they still came to play at the set. Everyone loved this work, loved and relied on each other,” she continued, “I think we felt and shared about it more than anyone else how we enjoyed this time together.”
She added, “Song Joong-ki, the main character Vincenzo, seems to have spread the happy virus. Director Kim Hee-won also gave people great strength. Since the two are sharing happiness, the people who are together with them don’t have to put in much effort to find pleasure.”
Jeon Yeo-bin said she still meets “Vincenzo” actors these days, adding, “I’ll go see Kim Yeo-jin (character Choi Myung-hee)’s play.” Regarding Choi Myung-hee, she shared, “It was a thankful point that Kim Yeo-jin was able to show off her skills and potential through Choi Myung-hee. It was fun acting with her. I think it would have been more interesting if Choi Myung-hee and Hong Cha-young had appeared together more.”
Jeon Yeo-bin defined “Vincenzo” as “a work that opened another opportunity”. The actress confessed, “Each work has its meaning. Theater stages I participated in as a staff, as well as works I appeared in when I was a student. None of them is meaningless. ‘Vincenzo’ was one of those works. It would be one of the best memories in my life. Rather than a great record, it opened another opportunity for me.”
