Sadly, our Wednesday-Thursday night will never be the same again as Extraordinary Attorney Woo has recently ended.
Haven’t watched this masterpiece yet? Here are 10 reasons why this drama is worth watching.
1. Heartwarming Legal Drama
Extraordinary Attorney Woo is a heartwarming legal drama that tells a story of a lawyer named Woo Young Woo with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who has an IQ of 164 and works at the Hanbada law firm.
This drama is so great mga bes! A must-watch masterpiece that you shouldn’t be missed. Every episode will touch your heart.
2. Features a female lead with Autism Spectrum Disorder
This is a masterpiece that breaks social prejudices toward the person who has disabilities like Young Woo and makes us all realize that they can shine based on their talents and skills.
Woo Young Woo is a character that serves as the light that shines in the darkness. She is a great representation of being different from others is not a bad thing, and that all of us are created uniquely.
3. Kang Tae Oh is the Charismatic Male Lead
Following his drama, Doom At Your Service in which he played the role of Lee Hyun Kyu, he is now ready to make the hearts of many flutters as Lee Jun Ho in this drama.
Kang Tae Oh perfectly portrays his sweet and delicate role here. He is a walking green flag that many fans could wish to have as a partner. Not only his sweet and sincere gestures to Young Woo but also his smile will melt your heart.
Moreover, Kang Tae Oh worked so hard for his role here.
Watch and try not to get swooned by his charm here.
4. Park Eun Bin’s Extraordinary Portrayal of Attorney Woo
Park Eun Bin impressed us with her great acting skills in the historical drama, The King’s Affection. She once again proved that she is indeed a great and versatile actress by playing the role of Attorney Woo Young Woo.
At first, she was so hesitant to play the role of a person who has a condition called Autism Spectrum Disorder because she wondered if she could portray it without hurting anyone or not. It’s not an easy and very challenging role but thankfully, she accepted it and flawlessly portrayed her respective role here.
She made her own version of Woo Young Woo so no one would feel unpleasant or offended and decided not to imitate a real person or a character that already exists.
A big round of applause to you Unnie! Woo to the Young to the Woo!
5. Whale Couple’s Overflowing Chemistry
The tandem of Kang Tae Oh and Park Eun Bin is so perfect!
This new pairing will not disappoint you since Eun Bin and Tae Oh showed their overflowing chemistry here. It’s the power of the whale couple! Their Love story is such a precious one, what will touch your heart is the aspect of expressing their pure and sincere love towards each other, demonstrating how love conquers all.
How they first meet and how their feelings grow towards each other are some of the interactions you’ll look forward to.
Their first kiss is really memorable for me, it is so cute and kilig!
6. Hanbada Squad
a. Kang Ki Young as Jung Myung Seok
Kang Ki Young plays the role of a senior attorney in the Hanbada law firm. We often see him playing comical roles in various Korean dramas but now he proved his versatility in acting by playing the role of Jung Myung Seok.
His character will make us realize the importance of good communication in every relationship and will remind us to take care of ourselves no matter how busy we are.
b. Ha Yoon Kyung as Choi Su Yeon
Choi Su Yeon is Attorney Young Woo’s colleague and her former law school classmate. She is one of those characters you’ll surely love, the “Spring’s Sunshine” for Young Woo. The way she stood up for Young Woo and takes care of her is very touching. She’s kind of a friend you’ll love to be with.
Ha Yoon Kyung portrays this role very well and suits her bright and sweet character in real life.
c. Joo Jung Hyuk as Kwon Min Woo
Joo Jung Hyuk plays the role of the “Tactician” Kwon Min Woo, a lawyer in Hanbada who dislikes Young Woo and does many bad things against Young Woo to bring her down.
At first, you’ll hate him because of bullying Young Woo but as the episode goes by, his character development will impress you, and might want to root him for Choi Su Yeon as well.
7. Full of Life Lessons
This is one of the reasons why I love this drama, every legal case they handle leaves a great impact on every one of us. It has full of life lessons that will give you some realizations in life.
The episodes, “This is Pengsoo” where they defended a young autistic man who’s accused of murdering his brother, and “The Pied Piper” where they defended an eccentric young man who was charged with kidnapping were my favorite.
In addition, the life of every character here teaches us a great life lesson.
8. Lovable People around Young Woo
It’s not complete without the lovable and kindhearted characters around Young Woo. Joo Hyun Young plays the role of Young Woo’s best friend, Dong Geu Rami, and Im Sung Jae portrays the role of Kim Min Shik who owns a pub where Rami works. They are always there to cheer Young Woo up when she is so down and discouraged.
You’ll get hooked with Rami and Min Shik for their bright and cheerful roles in this drama. Their characters will make you smile.
9. Extraordinary Cinematography
Not only the storyline will captivate you but also its creative cinematography is satisfying as well, especially those adorable whales that appear on the screen every time Young Woo thinks of brilliant ideas.
10. Ended with the Highest Rating in ENA History
Extraordinary Attorney Woo broke its own record for being the drama with the highest viewership rating in ENA history. It gained an average nationwide rating of 17.5 percent according to Nielsen Korea. Impressive, isn’t it?
