One of the most talked-about Kdrama series of 2021 is Vincenzo. As soon as it was released, it has already created a roar not only from domestic viewers but also internationally.
Vincenzo aired on tvN from February 20, 2021 until May 2, 2021 every Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 PM KST. The series immediately rose to the top with its episode 1 receiving a nationwide viewership rating of 7.7%. Its final episode received a whopping 14.6% nationwide viewership rating which made it one of the highest-rated dramas in the history of Korean cable television.
