Korean male accused “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” of “extreme feminism”, what is the truth?

A netizen said “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” used a derogatory term for men, but evidence said otherwise.

Previously, netizens on some Korean male communities accused the K-drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” of using a controversial word, but many have pointed out that said word may not have been used at all. 

In particular, earlier on August 4th, Korean male forums started to discuss a post from the production team of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”, which allegedly used a derogatory term directed at men.

Said post is a weekly report of the on-screen law firm Hanbada, where Woo Young Woo works, which showed 4 community feedbacks. Among these feedback, there was the term “5.5 trillion won”, which netizens in female communities often use to degrade Korean men. As a result, several users of male forums have accused “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” of “extreme feminism”.

However, other netizens raised suspicions about the allegation, pointing out 3 elements that suggest fabrication.

First, the font on the published photo is different from Hanbada’s previous weekly work report that has been posted so far. In addition, these “reports” are uploaded every Monday, but the photo spreading around on male forums was dated on Thursday, Finally, normal “reports” are just notes of Kang Ki Young’s character Jung Myung Seok, but suddenly there are community feedback, 

As of the moment, female and male communities are showing divided opinions regarding the matter, but the production team still retains their silence. 

Below are some comments from netizens: 

  • I don’t know if this is true or not, but if it is fabricated, I will save the post as a PDF and sent it to the production company 
  • If this is fake, I hope the original poster will be sued
  • Shouldn’t the production team speak up now that the issue has become a huge controversy?
