Extraordinary Attorney Woo tells the story of Woo Young-woo (Park Eun-bin), an autistic lawyer, working at a large law firm. Attorney Woo has eidetic memory that makes her a brilliant lawyer as she is able to recall laws to refute the opposing lawyer’s claims and build strong arguments to support her cases. Being different from neurotypical peers, her manner of communication is initially seen by the majority as odd and awkward and her strong emotional intelligence remains unrecognized. The show consistently tries to break down the commonly held misconceptions of autistic people lacking ‘social skills’ and ‘emotional intelligence.’ Instead it dives deeply into the struggles that neurotypical people face in dealing with someone who is highly intelligent but also disabled due to sensory issues and communication differences, and in accepting a way of being that falls outside of recognized social conventions of appropriate behavior and relationships. Woo Young-woo’s emotional insights touch many people deeply. The show develops all characters including Attorney Woo as struggling human beings and is exceptional in its portrayal of a kinder and gentler society moving towards encompassing difference.
