Netflix k-drama series Vincenzo episode 7


Vincenzo episode 7 continues to be cool and classy as we learn the true extent of the villain’s evil ways. In contrast, our favourite lawyers continue to find ways to disrupt the evil conglomerate.

This recap of Netflix k-drama series Vincenzo episode 7 contains significant spoilers.

Last week was a war between lawyers, and episode 7 is the same with Vincenzo and Cha-young constantly thinking on their feet; this is a series that loves its own drama and glamorises it for the audience.

After the last chapter, Cha-young calls Vincenzo into the courtroom as the “surprise witness”, much to the spectators’ surprise and the opposition. Flashbacks show Cha-young and Vincenzo discussing the need for a new witness — Vincenzo tells her to call him in, and he’ll do the rest. In the courtroom, Cha-young calls him a witness and an assailant — she tells the judge that he’s the person who assaulted Babel Chemicals employees. In a flashback, Vincenzo fights the men who blamed the researchers for the side effects of BLSD.

The critical evidence and a medical expert

Vincenzo episode 7 shows how much both lawyers had planned — they are not to be messed with, and Jang Hoon-woo realises he has a true enemy now.

Choi Myung-hee tries to reject Vincenzo as a witness, but he holds up a cell phone as “critical evidence” — it belongs to the head of the research team he attacked. There are texts on the phone that prove the company covered up the incident that impacted the victims. He states that one of the employees of Babel Chemicals handed him the phone for the public interest.

Vincenzo then arrogantly asks the judge for an ambulance, stating he’s going to beat Director Gil Jong-moon to a pulp for giving the victims false information about the cause of sickness. Choi Myung-hee argues that Vincenzo isn’t a medical expert, falling right into their hands — Cha-young calls in a medical profession as a witness — it’s Gil Jong-moon’s wife — professor Kim Yeo-won, the director of the pediatric cancer centre — Vincenzo spent some time with her before the trial, showing evidence that her husband has hidden money and was having an affair; he also promises her to win all her husband’s assets in the divorce case. Jang Joon-woo looks on impressed as the judge allows both witnesses.

Witnesses in action

Then, the defence of Babel completely falls over as the new witnesses derail them in sensational drama.

While Kim Yeo-won goes through the evidence she has, the judge asks her husband, Gil Jong-moon, to the stand. As he does, Kim Yeo-won reveals the meth she found on him to prove he isn’t capable of being a witness as he’s a drug user. Vincenzo stands up and talks about victim Lee U-yeong who is in hospital; he believes the drug will be found in his blood because Gil Jong-moon injected him with it. Tensions reach boiling point as husband and wife argue in the middle of the court — Kim Yeo-won repeatedly slaps Gil Jong-moon.

Knowing they have lost, Jang Joon-woo tells his brother Chairman Jang Han-seo to release a press conference that they’ve made a mistake with BLSD and to punish everyone who was involved.

Suit shopping

And then there’s calm after the storm, giving our favourite lawyers time together as they slowly realise their feelings for each other.

After winning the case, Cha-young wants to treat Vincenzo and takes him to a suit shop. He tells her he needs ten suits. The tailor keeps on applauding how good the suits look on Vincenzo. She eventually falls asleep for good, and Vincenzo looks at her as she lays there peacefully. Afterwards, Cha-young gives her a nice pen as a gift to celebrate their partnership.

Don’t p**s off the villain

Vincenzo episode 7 shows how angry the villain of the series really is — he’s not to be reckoned with.

Jang Joon-woo is so angry at the defence team that he takes Mr Han and Choi Myung-hee into the middle of the desert. He gets out a golf club and starts smashing his car. He tells them that he’s never lost twice in a row in his life. Choi Myung-hee admits to letting her guard down and failed to assess the enemy. Jang Joon-woo says that they need to work more creatively and that Vincenzo is born with it — he clearly admires him. He asks them both to take away everything Cha-young has and tells Choi Myung-hee that she has three days to prove her worth.

Vincenzo is still working on the gold

Yes, gold is still a problem.

Mr Cho has arranged for Vincenzo to meet a professor to help get into the basement under the plaza’s temple. The professor tells Vincenzo that drilling even 30cm will bring the entire building down — this is a major setback for the lawyer. Vincenzo tells Mr Cho that they are running out of time and needs to play another card.

Jang Han-seo fears his brother will kill him

Jang Han-seo asks Jang Joon-woo that if he keeps letting him down, will he do what he did to his father. A flashback shows Jang Joon-woo getting director Gil Jong-moon to overdose his father with drugs while asleep on a hospital bed. This scene demonstrated how evil Jang Joon-woo is. This is why Jang Han-seo fears his own brother; he knows what he’s capable of.

The story of the gold

A mysterious man named Gilbert heads to the plaza and tells the residents that there’s loads of gold underneath them. He explains that a few years ago, a few men came over to move the gold, and a few workers were killed. He shows photo evidence to prove that there’s is gold. The residents still do not believe Gilbert despite his story.

Babel admit blame

On the news, Chairman Jang Han-seo admits that Babel is at fault for the recent incidents with BLSD. Cha-young then gets excited as rumours circulate that Choi Myung-hee tried to bribe Chief Prosecutor Hwang Jin-tae and failed.

The residents want to fight

With Vincenzo doing all he can to save the plaza, he could not have predicted the growing togetherness to fight at the plaza.

Vincenzo and Cha-young tell the plaza residents that they’ll purchase a building in Sangchi-dong where they can be relocated. The residents seem to be in agreement which is surprising and seems too easy. Park Seok-do intervenes in the meeting and wishes them all the best — the residents tell them that they are not leaving the building and they will rest here. This skews Vincenzo and Cha-young’s plans. The residents get flared up, chanting that they will fight for this plaza.

The police hold Cha-young for illegal activities

Choi Myung-hee does everything she can to Jang Joon-woo’s wishes in episode 7 as she tries to take Cha-young down.

The police have received flash drives proving that Cha-young has taken part in illegal activities. She’s placed in a police cell. Vincenzo doesn’t think it will be easy getting her out. Cha-young tells him to handle this like a member of the Mafia, which takes Vincenzo by surprise. Cha-young lists what he has done; stabbed Jang’s pillow with syringes, burnt down a warehouse, fired guns and found out confidential information. She doesn’t believe that’s an ordinary lawyer and knows he’s the Mafia. Vincenzo promises to handle it, and Cha-young hugs him.

Making a deal with Choi Myung-hee

To get Cha-young out of the police station, Vincenzo has to do the unthinkable, comprising with the enemy.

Vincenzo joins Choi Myung-hee at a casino; he brings up Chief Prosecutor Hwang Jin-tae and says he will deal with him, but only if she releases Cha-young. He hands over a contract with the deal. Vincenzo meets the chief prosecutor, who is watching his son play football. He tells them if he accepts Choi Myung-hee’s offer, he will give him what he wants — his son to go to a European Football League within 24 hours. A reputable football coach of a team arrives who knows Vincenzo. They are friends. The chief prosecutor Hwang Jin-tae shakes Vincenzo’s hand immediately. He then rings Choi Myung-hee and agrees to her deal, and Cha-young is released.

When Cha-young learns that Vincenzo cut a deal with Choi Myung-hee, she looks initially disappointed. He apologises and states he had no choice. But then she shows she was joking and gets excited, calling his move “Mafia-like”.

The ending

Park Seok-do plans to raid the plaza. Vincenzo is going to expose it to the public. It will cause a scandal on social media, and it will delay the demolition. Vincenzo asks Mr Cho to organise demonstrators to turn up who will get beaten and then retreat once there is footage. During the start of the raid, Mr An happens to be wearing a red jacket, and he’s beaten up. The residents organise themselves to fight and rush at Park Seok-do’s men. It’s absolute carnage. When Vincenzo arrives, he learns the protestors didn’t turn up as one of them got infected beforehand with a virus. The residents have overthrown Park Seok-do’s men. This went completely against Vincenzo’s plans — he has a rabid group of residents before him.

Vincenzo episode 7 continues to be cool and classy as we learn the true extent of the villain’s evil ways. In contrast, our favourite lawyers continue to find ways to disrupt the evil conglomerate.
