A lawyer at a large law firm looked into what made “Extraordinary Lawyer Woo” a hit.
On July 11th, Maeil Business Star Today reported on the secret to the success of ENA’s drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”, as analyzed by lawyer A, a partner of a large Korean law firm.
A said, “The setting of the cases in ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo’ is exaggerated and there is also fantasy, but I like it. There are few errors in the use of legal terms, but they paid a lot of attention to the details.“
A continued, “During cases, Jung Myeong Seok (Kang Ki Young) and Woo Young Woo (Park Eun Bin) have a lot of realistic lines in their conversations, so I was surprised.“
A praised the drama, saying, “As a lawyer, I find the drama praiseworthy and heartwarming because it respects the things that need to be respected properly and includes new, fresh things in a touching way.“
A added, “It’s a legal drama that I’ve been watching in a really good mood after a long time. I can feel the sincerity and efforts (of the production crew and cast).”
A also pointed out that there are things in “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” that are different from reality. A explained that they never leave work as early as Woo Young Woo, and that they cannot be put into the case during a six-month probationary period. A also said that they never interrogate witnesses because it requires a lot of practice, study, and rehearsal.
A also talked about the size of each lawyer’s room. A said, “These days, I try to give more spacious and better rooms to my juniors who work a lot. I don’t use such a large and flashy space just because I’m a partner.“
Meanwhile, “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” premiered to an average nationwide rating of 0.9% and soared to 5.2% in the recently released episode 4, creating much buzz.
