The series Extraordinary Attorney Woo has broken audience records both in her native country and on Netflix. This series tells the story of overcoming a little girl named Woo within the autism spectrum who becomes an extraordinary lawyer.
The series is a magnificent combination of legal drama, social drama, comedy, and romance that leaves no one indifferent. Today we will tell you a little about the impact this series is having on the world. Extraordinary Attorney Woo is changing fate for many.
Woo’s success in South Korea has been indisputable. The series has transformed into a success both the small television station that transmitted it and its producer AStory. In addition, the “Woo” phenomenon has been such that it has boosted South Korea’s television industry and tourism to the places featured in the series.
But the most important thing has been the transformation of the awareness of South Korean citizens and around the world about the autism spectrum. In South Korea, there are strong taboos regarding disabilities and mental illness. Thanks to Woo, some of these taboos are becoming the topic of the moment.
On the other hand, the Netflix series has had the genius of bringing to light countless social issues that afflict South Korean society. That is why today we will talk about the legal aspects reflected in the series, the social aspects, and the impact it has and is having in your country and in the rest of the world.
Let’s first meet those who worked to make it possible to see Extraordinary Attorney Woo on the autism spectrum.
Cast and production team of Extraordinary Attorney Woo.
The television series Extraordinary Attorney Woo was surrounded by a team composed of the best of South Korea.
The production company AStory comes from the experience of having produced Kingdom for Netflix, one of the most interesting series on the platform. This series mixes genres in a very skillful way and perhaps this is the key of the AStory production company. In Extraordinary Attorney Woo, genres as dissimilar as legal dramas, social dramas, comedy, suspense, and romance are mixed.
Perhaps this is the first key to the success of the series.
On the other hand, the producer and the script have been risky in presenting taboo topics and situations for South Korean society. Thanks to this, they have come to create an impact on society. This will surely be the second key to its success.
Last but not least, the choice of production, direction and acting team has been fundamental to its success. Betting talented South Korean actors to interpret a subject as sensitive as people with autism spectrum has been very important.
