My Review

This is my favorite legal drama since awhile You Were Sleeping!

I loved how this drama included Attorney Woo’s special interest: Whales!

I adored the soundtrack, learning about Attorney Woo’s friends, and the court cases were so compelling!! This is a relatively fast-paced K-Drama and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the plot twists. I have to admit – I predicted some like the storyline about who leaked the anonymous blog post. I learned a lot about whales in this too. I really loved that this was a bit lighter than It’s Okay Not To Be Okay.

My favorite episode was the case Attorney Woo took with her friend. It also showed how complicated family relationships can be. It was so good to finally see that on TV. Family can be supportive, unsupportive in other ways, messy, but there for each other at the end of the day. I liked that the show didn’t shy away from talking about hard topics.

This show also doesn’t hide the fact that people often overlook those with disabilities. Attorney Woo was top of her class but because she has autism, many companies refused to hire her. A very real struggle from what I’ve read on The Mighty.

Typically in K-dramas I love the crew more than the couple and this was the case for this one too! I absolutely adored seeing Attorney Woo interact with her friends and the nice colleagues. Woo’s Team (except one) looked out for each other as they got to know one another. It was incredible to watch them grow closer to each other as each episode went on!

The romance was also super cute! Jung is one of the few walking green flags for a boyfriend. I really want to see more positive relationships in K-Dramas. Their chemistry is undeniable and I love that Woo eventually cares for him as much as she loves talking about whales.

Final thoughts: This was so good! I’ve been sick with a sore throat so I’ve been trying to do less than usual (which is hard for me, lol). I loved this K-drama and if you’re a fan of Suits or other legal dramas then you’re going to want to watch Extraordinary Attorney Woo.
