This recap of Extraordinary Attorney Woo season 1, episode 2, “The Wedding Dress That Slipped Off”, contains spoilers.


In the second episode of Extraordinary Attorney Woo, a woman’s big day quickly descends into scandal, setting up another case for Woo Young-woo after yesterday’s successful debut. Can she make it a twofer? Well, let’s see.

Extraordinary Attorney Woo season 1, episode 2 recap

So, here’s what happened at the wedding: The bride tripped over her dress and ripped the back, exposing a tattoo. Her father, Kim Jeong-gu, has decided this is the hotel’s fault and is suing them for 1 billion won in damages despite the premises offering a full refund and complimentary voucher. Needless to say, although Myeong-seok points it out anyway, this is going to be a difficult case to close given that the hotel isn’t behaving unreasonably and might not have been at fault in the first place.

An undercover mission into the Daehyeon Hotel is deemed necessary, and Kwon Min-woo and Choi Soo-yeon are tasked with that while Young-woo speaks with the bride, Kim Hwa-yeong. Her tattoo is of Guanyin, the Buddhist Bodhisattva of compassion. She claims it ended up being exposed because the dress was loose and the hotel staff had improperly pinned it tighter. But lots about the wedding seems suspect. Her father took control of the guest list, she has already removed her wedding ring, and there is barely any evidence of the husband’s existence around the place. Young-woo, in typical fashion, questions her outright on whether or not she’s even in love.

There’s a vein of humor running through “The Wedding Dress That Slipped Off” involving Su-yeong’s dodgy stomach, which might be seen as a bit puerile for some. But the actual case is relatively dry. It comes to involve a mishap by the hotel staff and a botched cover-up, and then a finessing of the hefty damages thanks to potential land and business stakes that were tied up in the matrimony.

But love always wins in the end, doesn’t it? Hwa-young, it turns out, is actually in love with her friend, and when she finally speaks for herself, the whole lawsuit is thrown out and she walks away happily – her father less so, understandably, but the heart wants what the heart wants, which I suppose is a fittingly chirpy conclusion for an episode in a show such as this.
