These days I got hooked with the Korean drama Vincenzo that’s why I tried visiting their filming location in Seoul located in Cheonggye Plaza.
If you are my reader in my blog you know that I love visiting the filming locations of every drama that I watch. These days this Korean drama Vincenzo played by Song Joongki is one of the dramas that I am watching. It’s a dark comedy-drama which is really interesting. Anyway, before I show the filming location of the drama I will write a short synopsis about the drama.
Synopsis of Korean Drama Vincenzo
Vincenzo is a Korean drama starred by Song Joongki. This drama is currently airing during weekends on tvN, 9:00 pm, and premiered on Netflix last February 20, 2021.
This drama is about a Korean boy who was adopted and brought to Italy at a young age by Don Fabio (the head of the Cassano mafia family). He became an Italian lawyer and works as an advisor for the mafia. When Fabio died, Paolo (Fabio’s son) wants to kill Vincenzo. He fleed to South Korea to recover the gold hidden in an old building named Geumga-dong Apartment Complex. The golds are hidden by the Chinese tycoon but later died. No one knows about the hidden vault except Vincenzo, that’s why he wanted to get the golds and use it for his retirement. But a real estate named Babel Group bought the building illegally and Vincenzo wants to take back the building by all means. He got involved with Lawyer Hong Cha-young when Lawyer Hong Yoo-chan died unexpectedly.
Vincenzo Korean Drama Filming Location
In episodes 1 and 2, a familiar building in Seoul has been featured in the drama. It is the Sewoon Shopping Center in Cheonggye Plaza which was built in 1968. This building was the first-ever electronic market in Korea with a community complex that is running for over 40 years.
However, in 2017, it’s been redeveloped into ‘Maker City’ that holds other industries like creative printing and manufacturing. Aside from that, from the Sewoon Rooftop, you can see the panoramic view of Seoul. This place is also near Cheonggyecheon stream which you can have a walk with friends or family.
