While 2PM‘s Ok Taecyeon has appeared in many K-Dramas, his most famous role is undoubtedly psychopath and serial killer Jang Jun Woo/Jang Han Seok in tvN‘s Vincenzo.
Many viewers were shocked when the adorable bumbling intern at Wusang firm company was revealed as the true villain. No one expected our Taecyeon to be such a baddie.
Yet, it turns out neither did he.
At a recent fanmeeting in Hong Kong, Taecyeon revealed he did not know his Vincenzo character was evil initially. So, he also thought he was just a cute intern as he read only the scripts for episodes one and two.
I actually didnt know the role was an evil character. The scripts that I received were only episodes 1 and 2, and back then, I was the kind cute intern Jang Jun Woo… I myself was also surprised.

Previously, Taecyeon revealed to Eric Nam that he had always wanted to play a villain role but was limited by JYP Entertainment. So, it worked out in his favor!
Um. I mean, back when I was in JYP. I’m not talking sh*t about JYP, by the way! I’m just saying literal fact. They wouldn’t let me do the antagonist. They wouldn’t let me do a villain role. I had to be clean image, very nice or like… I could be a rebel, but you don’t want to be like a serial killer. So, that’s the only dream role that I had before, but then again, I moved company…
