Extraordinary Attorney Woo is an notable K-drama with an normal ending and cliched transferring parts. Boasting exemplary acting, some stable instances and a lovely team of characters, this K-drama exploded in reputation over the weeks that it aired. Starting with a measly 0.9% share of nationwide watchers, Attorney Woo ended its remaining episode with a 17.5% share, now not to point out extraordinary numbers of human beings observing round the world thanks to Netflix.

Ordinarily I wouldn’t convey this up however it’s necessary to word for Attorney Woo due to the fact in many ways, this sizeable enchantment is each a wonderful and terrible for this drama. On the one hand, extra eyeballs on a undertaking is by no means a horrific thing.

On the different hand, that delivered strain and expectation to deliver, specially for the duration of the latter episodes of filming after such a appropriate reception, can once in a while make or smash a series. And unfortunately, that feels like the case for this one.

Don’t get me wrong, Attorney Woo is a exciting watch however the effervescent subplots,

working alongside the extraordinary instances every week, ultimately peter out and fall down with some unresolved conflicts and a as an alternative rushed remaining few chapters to strive and wrap the whole lot up in a neat little bow.

Brought to existence by means of the remarkable overall performance of Park Eun-Bin, the exhibit facilities on 27 yr historic Woo Young-Woo, who graduated pinnacle of her type at each university and regulation school. Her astonishing reminiscence and concept system are solely held returned by way of one element – she’s identified with autism spectrum disorder. Struggling in social interactions, Young-Woo tries to navigate the highs and lows of regulation via her work at Hanbada Law Firm.

Spread throughout sixteen episodes, the collection in fact juggles episodic instances with a longer going for walks plot-line, with a number of extraordinary subplots sprouting throughout the run-time from that. The predominant center of attention right here is, largely, on the distinct instances and there’s a exact deal of correct regulation drama put into this. The major subplot that then blossoms from this is a will they/won’t they romance with workplace heartthrob Jun-Ho.

Around that is a long-running saga involving Young-Woo’s parentage.

It’s rumoured that she should properly be the daughter to Tae Su-Mi, the potential candidate about to take a large position in the front of the public.

Coinciding with this is drama involving Min-Woo, a attorney who doesn’t take kindly to the perceived preferential therapy Young-Woo is receiving at the firm. There’s some other subplot involving Myeong-Seok’s fitness and wife, whilst Su-Yeon is determined for romance.

All of these troubles if truth be told bubble up throughout the episodes, with some even teased as massive bouts of drama at the give up of every chapter. Unfortunately, they’re sprung out for so lengthy that by means of the time the remaining week of episodes crop up, Extraordinary Attorney Woo throws in a couple of longer run-times to strive and hurriedly tie the entirety collectively with a neat little bow.

And personally, I don’t suppose it pretty works

The different hassle with this show, and possibly it’s greater of a non-public gripe than some thing else, is the way the collection depends so closely on “lightbulb” moments to get to the bottom of its more difficult cases. Young-Woo is a girl certainly obsessed with whales and this plants up in humorous approaches throughout every episode.

However, Young-Woo has a tendency to all of sudden make a breakthrough, whole with seeing dolphins or whales, earlier than coming to a conclusion that wins the day. While I do admire the exhibit is without delay about her, it once in a while feels like a low-cost “get out of detention center free” card to use.

Thankfully the sequence receives round that by using inclusive of some morally ambiguous instances and some subjective endings. Sometimes Young-Woo finds herself on the incorrect facet of the ethical compass, defending some instead shady characters. Other instances the real decision – like a younger man kidnapping a bus full of children to let them have a appropriate time away from the stresses of a draconian college – is in all likelihood to spark fierce debate on each facets of the argument.
