Extraordinary Attorney Woo 2022 Season 1 Review
Extraordinary Attorney Woo 2022, Despite its impressive beginning and middle acts, Extraordinary Attorney Woo has a disappointingly standard conclusion and predictable plot points. This K-drama became an overnight sensation because to its stellar performance, compelling plot points, and endearing cast of characters. From a paltry 0.9% of U.S. viewers at the start of the series to a whopping 17.5% at the conclusion, not to mention incredible international viewership owing to Netflix, Attorney Woo has been an undeniable success.
The drama’s enormous popularity is both a strength and a weakness, so I wouldn’t normally bring it up, but it bears mentioning in the context of Attorney Woo’s character. First of all, it’s never a bad idea to have more people have a look at your work. On the other side, a series’ success or failure may hinge on whether or not the creators are able to live up to the hype, particularly in the last episodes of production. That seems to be the situation here, too.
Don’t get me wrong; Attorney Woo is entertaining to watch. However, the show’s recurring subplots, which develop with the many cases presented each week, finally fizzle out due to lingering tensions and a hastily written conclusion.
Woo Young-Woo, a 27-year-old who excelled in both college and law school and is brought to life by Park Eun-Bin, is the show’s protagonist. Her diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder is the only thing holding her back from reaching her full cognitive potential. Despite her difficulties with interpersonal communication, Young-Woo uses her job at Hanbada Law Firm to learn to deal with the ups and downs of the legal profession.
The series spans 16 episodes and generally juggles episodic cases with a longer running plot-line, with various separate subplots growing from that. The cases themselves take centre stage, and the dramatisation of legal proceedings is very realistic. A blossoming relationship with the workplace hottie Jun-Ho becomes a major subplot as a result.
There has been a long-running drama over Young-origins. Woo’s She may be Tae Su-kid, Mi’s who is set to make a name for herself in the public eye as a potential contender.
Concurrently, there is conflict with Min-Woo, a lawyer who resents what he sees as Young-preferential Woo’s treatment at the firm. Myeong-Seok and his wife are at the centre of a secondary narrative, while Su-Yeon is pining for a romantic partner.
All of these problems gradually come to a head throughout the course of the episodes, with some hinted at as climactic escalations of tension at the close of each part. When the final week of episodes finally rolls around, Extraordinary Attorney Woo puts in a few of lengthier run-times in an attempt to hastily tie things together. Even more so, I don’t believe it succeeds entirely on my end.
The show’s overreliance on “lightbulb” moments to solve its difficult crimes is another issue, though this may be more of a personal concern than anything else. Each episode has a funny reference to Young-whale Woo’s obsession. However, Young-Woo often experiences spontaneous epiphanies, replete with sightings of dolphins or whales, before arriving at a conclusion that proves to be correct. Even while I recognise the programme is mostly about her, it sometimes seems like a cheap “get out of jail free” pass.
Luckily, the show sidesteps this problem by presenting some ethically grey situations and some open-ended conclusions. When Young-Woo defends questionable people, she often finds herself on the wrong side of her own moral compass. In other cases, the resolution itself is likely to elicit passionate disagreement from both sides, like when a young guy kidnaps a bus load of kids to let them have fun away from the rigours of a harsh school.
But the performances and personalities are what really sell this. Everything about Eun-Bin, from her mannerisms to her overall demeanour, is spot on. You can’t help but be pleased by how well she does her job. She will undoubtedly win more Baeksang Prizes in the next year.
Despite this, Extraordinary Attorney Woo isn’t the finest legal drama, and its climax is mostly unsatisfying and unsatisfying. Nonetheless, the show’s superb cast of likeable people and compelling idea help to elevate the content. Regardless, it is undeniably one of the best K-dramas of the year and a thought-provoking watch.
