“The ocean is so big and deep that it keeps the whales’ secret!”
A netizen explained the secret of the hidden blue whale that was revealed during the 8th episode of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo.”
ENA’s “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” (hereinafter referred to as “Woo Young-woo”) is drawing more attention as many reveal extraordinary details hidden inside the drama. On July 25th, a post about the hidden meanings related to the blue whale was posted on online communities and SNS.
According to the analysis of netizen A, there is a symbol of each person in “Woo Young-woo.” Woo Young-woo (Park Eun-bin) is a baby whale, Tae Soo-mi (Jin Kyung) is a blue whale (king whale in Korean), and Han Sun-young (Baek Ji-won) is the sea.
In the first scene of Tae Soo-mi’s appearance, Kwon Min-woo (played by Joo Jong-hyuk) looked at her and said, “Why did the king come out herself?” You can see from this line that the Tae Soo-mi symbolizes the blue whale (which is written as king whale in Korean).
“Just by the fact that no one has seen the whale giving birth yet…The ocean is so big and deep that it keeps the whales’ secrets firmly.”
None of the characters saw Tae Soo-mi giving birth to Woo Young-woo. She is also keeping that story a secret.
Adding more to this, the audience can find hints about the sea in episode 1.
Hanbada (‘sea, ocean’ in Korean) is the law firm that Woo Young-woo belongs to. Han Sun-young is the representative of Hanbada. Han Sun-young’s office at the time has a large picture of the sea hanging in a frame on the wall.
In the 8th episode’s unreleased video, Han Sun-young had a war of nerves regarding Tae Soo-mi. It turns out that Han Sun-young knows Tae Soo-mi’s secret.
In the sixth episode, Woo Young-woo’s line, “The most famous way to hunt whales is to kill their babies first,” is also significant. This netizen was wondering if Han Sun-young was attacking Woo Young-woo to catch Tae Soo-mi.
In other words, the key is whether the sea, which knows the secret of the giant whale, will protect that secret until the end.
Netizens commented on this post, saying, “What’s going on with these details?” “I got goosebumps,” “Hanbada, please keep the secret,” and “I clap whenever interpretations like this appear.”
