Extraordinary Attorney Woo is about a lawyer with autism named Woo Young-woo, played by Park Eun-bin. He works at a big law firm. Attorney Woo has a perfect memory, which makes her a great lawyer because she can remember laws to counter the claims of the other lawyer and make strong arguments to support her cases.
Because she is different from her neurotypical peers, most people find her way of communicating strange and awkward at first, and her strong emotional intelligence goes unnoticed. People often think that autistic people don’t have “social skills” or “emotional intelligence.”
The show works hard to dispel this idea. Instead, it goes into detail about how hard it is for neurotypical people to deal with someone who is very smart but has problems with their senses or with how they communicate, and how hard it is for them to accept a way of being that is different from what is considered to be normal behavior and relationships.
A lot of people are deeply moved by Woo Young-emotional woo’s insights. All of the characters, including Attorney Woo, are shown to be struggling people, and the show does a great job of showing how society is becoming kinder and more accepting of differences.
