Now, the question is: are you one of them? Check out these crucial facts and details about “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Korean drama, and let’s find out together!
1. Woo Young Woo was Created Based on a Real-Life Living Scientist
First and foremost, only a true fan of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Korean drama knows that Woo Young Woo was actually created based on a real-life scientist: Dr. Temple Grandin.
As it is portrayed in Woo Young Woo character, Dr. Temple Grandin had autism since she was very young: at the age of 2. Her doctor stated at the time that Dr. Temple Grandin would never be able to speak, let alone function normally. So she would need someone to care for her in her entire life.
But she proved them wrong.
Today, Dr. Temple Grandin is a brilliant renowned zoologist with a stellar reputation in her field. She is a 74-year-old professor at Colorado State University, USA, with a long list of honors and publications.
An advisor to “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Korean drama, Professor Kim Byung Gun, said they wanted an innovation. That is why they created a character that broke through all the autism stereotypes. Also, they wanted to show that with the proper care and nurture, people with autistic traits will be able to make a difference in the world. Just like Dr. Temple Grandin did.
2. Why the Whales?
Second on the list of facts and details is the beautiful whales appearing in “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Korean drama. Why do you think the creators invented these details about the whales in the first place?
Indeed, in most cases, people who fall into the autistic spectrum often get highly fixated in particular subjects. The most frequent subjects found are usually dinosaurs, cars, trains, weather, and even ships and pirates. However, Woo Young Woo creators use whales as the go-to creature in the drama.
Because according to writer Moon Ji Won, whales will be far grander in creating the perfect scene arrangement in drama. Besides, writer Moon Ji Won also believes that whales look incredibly cool. That is why as she researched further about whales, she added the “whale eureka” scenes for Woo Young Woo.
3. The Reason Behind “Dong Gu Rami” Name
In “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Korean drama, Woo Young Woo has a best friend and spiritual pillar named Dong Gu Rami.
Previously, fans assumed that the name Dong Gu Rami came from the word “donggeurami”, which literally translates to “circle”. They believed that because autistic spectrums are portrayed as a circle, the writer chose this name for Woo Young Woo’s best friend.
But facts and details about “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Korean drama said otherwise.
Unlike fans’ speculation, writer Moon Ji Won stated that the reason behind Dong Gu Rami’s name is simply because she wanted fans to constantly remember once they hear the name.
“The character Dong Geu Rami is Young Woo’s best friend and spiritual pillar. In some ways, she is even stranger than Young Woo. So I thought, ‘I’ll give you a name that is unforgettable once you hear it.”writer Moon Ji Won.
And apparently, the writer’s effort was a success because not only do fans remember Dong Gu Rami’s name, they even speculated various theories about it. Everything because the name is just incredibly unique!
4. “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” is One of Few Kdramas WITHOUT Villains – WHY?
If you dwell more into the facts and details in “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”, you will realize that this Kdrama does NOT have any villains. And according to the creators, they did it intentionally.
Writer Moon Ji Won stated in an interview that the main focus of this drama is Woo Young Woo and her challenges. She is the embodiment of brilliance but possesses various extreme strengths and weaknesses that may pose a challenge in society.
That is why, instead of portraying her challenge in the form of one main villain, the creators want to focus more on Woo Young Woo herself and how she overcomes these natural hardships as a person who is visibly neurodivergent.
In addition, they wanted to specifically point out that people with autistic traits have the ability to overcome their challenges. Not only that, they can also thrive in society. But these are only possible with the right support and nurture.
“What we intended with the character of Woo is that she has both an extreme advantage and an extreme weakness together. We didn’t set an antagonist because the greatest difficulty for Woo to be a lawyer comes from autism itself and the prejudices that follow.”writer Moon Ji Won.
5. The Reason Behind Its Special Highlight on Children’s Education
Finally, if you’re a true fan of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”, you must have understood why the Korean drama particularly focused on and highlighted children’s education.
Children born on the autistic spectrum have different ways of perceiving things. They have their own method of thinking that is way different from people who are not on the autistic spectrum.
As Dr. Temple Grandin stated in her lecture, children with autistic traits pay more attention to the details. They are obsessed with the little things rather than the big picture. That is why Dr. Temple Grandin stated it was the hands-on practical activities that she managed to excel during her school days.
However, that is NOT the case with today’s education system. Students’ abilities are measured with levels and grades instead. They are bombarded with big theories and knowledge. And they face huge pressure that they must be able to absorb everything and demonstrate them perfectly.
With such overgeneralized standards and pressure, let alone children with autistic traits, even non-autistic children will never be able to grow up into well-functioning adults.
“Children have to play right now. It’s too late after getting into university, or after getting a job and after getting married.Bang Gu Ppong, a character in “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”.
Later is too late.
In a life full of anxiety, it’ll be too late to find the only way to happiness.”
The Brilliance of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Korean Drama and Its Possibility of Season 2
Finally, it is completely rare to have a Korean drama filled with charming innocence and brilliant characteristics at the same time. That is why fans are extremely hopeful that “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” will continue to Season 2.
Unfortunately, during the press conference on July 26, director Yoo In Shik explained that this drama is still far from its Season 2 plan. That is because to get a Season 2, “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” must be considered profitable and commercially worthy.
At the same time, Season 2 will require more scheduling for all the cast and production team. Therefore, up until today, there has yet been any discussion about “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Season 2.
“I can tell you, though, that everyone involved deeply loves and cares for Woo Young Woo.”Director Yoo In Shik.
