This article is a preview for Extraordinary Attorney Woo season 1, episodes 15 & 16, and may contain spoilers for previous episodes.
Netflix’s latest k-drama offering is Extraordinary Attorney Woo, a charming dramedy about a young woman with an autism spectrum disorder joining a big law firm and facing a fair helping of irrational prejudice alongside her legal cases.
Here’s where we’re at:
Episode 13: “This is the second two-part case. But it’s the first that feels like a holiday. And perhaps the comparatively small stakes of the case are intentional, a way to get us to focus on the bubbling relationships and personal crises that have been brought along for the trip.”
Episode 14: “You’ll be pleased to learn that the noodle business does amount to a payoff in quite a nicely written way, despite it feeling like a bit of a slog earlier. But it still remains a sideshow, with the character drama – especially Young-woo and Jun-ho – forming the main event. There are some movements in the matter of Young-woo’s parentage that’ll probably form the bulk of the drama in the final two episodes, but there’s something quietly tragic about this core love story, especially since we know that Young-woo is trying to preserve Jun-ho’s feelings, but is actually hurting him more than necessary because of her social ineptitude. That’s sad and truthful in the way that only the most compelling drama is.”
