Ok Taecyeon confesses that he was not aware of the ending

2 PM member Ok Taecyeon plays the villain in the series Vincenzo. He is the twisted psychopath villain that no one expected. Playing the role of Jang Jun Woo, the sweet and innocent intern, is one of Taecyeon’s best-known roles. Though Jang Jun Woo seems like a cute, puppy-like character, in reality, he is the CEO of one of the biggest companies who doesn’t follow acceptable moral practices which ends up hurting a lot of people. Needless to say, it's an evil character. Taecyeon undertakes the role perfectly with his sweet smile and as for his psychopath side, the evil in his eyes is palpable.  

In a fan meeting in Hong Kong, Ok Taecyeon revealed that he himself was not aware that his character was going to turn out evil. As for him, he had only read the script for the first two episodes when he took the role. The actor was as shocked as the audience when he got to know that he’d be playing a psychopath villain.

Giving an example Taecyeon elaborates that it was okay to play a rebellious role but not a psychopath murderer. An evil role was something he always wanted to try out.
