This isn't the first time that Joong Ki had to learn a foreign language for a role. He actually also learned some Spanish for two recent movies.

“I learned Spanish in Space Sweepers and in the recent movie Bogotá, I had to use a lot of Spanish, so I thought Italian wouldn’t be too difficult,” Joong Ki shared. “But the two languages are very different. Also, speaking Italian in Korea, which is a foreign setting for the character, wasn’t easy to balance, but it was fun.”

Guess we'll be rewatching a lot of scenes from Vincenzo now!

Vincenzo dropped on Netflix on February 20.
