What will happen in the “Extraordinary Attorney Woo Season 2”?
Screenwriter Moon Ji-won is on board to create a potential second season, according to The Korea Herald, which quotes CEO Lee Sang-Baek. If this is the case, Ji-won would have a lot of challenges ahead of her.
Lee Jun-ho, played by Kang Tae-oh, the love interest of Young-woo, is about to enlist in the military. All physically capable Korean men must enlist by the age of 28, thus future episodes may have to accommodate a significant absence for this central character.
Then there’s the debate about how the show depicts autistic characters. Some members of the autistic community have praised the show for its portrayal, while others have said it does a poor job of representing those on the spectrum.
These comments should be taken into consideration moving forward so that Season 2 is as genuine and courteous as possible.
Star actress Park Eun-bin gave this a lot of thought before agreeing to play the lead. Actually, Park said no to the part several times before finally accepting it.
When recently interviewed by TV Guide, she disclosed: “Since this is a drama, I knew that the media would have an opinion. I strove to avoid offending people who had autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
“I felt like I couldn’t bring any preconceived notions or biases into this project. In fact, that was one of my major concerns “The speaker continued. “Due to the broad audience for this drama and the universal nature of its topics, I was overwhelmed with a sense of obligation. I was trying to avoid hurting or offending anyone.”
In a later interview with ET News (via Soompi), she elaborated: “To emphasize Woo Young-uniqueness, woo’s I felt it was my moral obligation to avoid using real autistic persons as a reference and to avoid excluding references whenever feasible.
Since Woo Young Woo does not speak for all autistic persons, I felt it was important to highlight her unique characteristics.
Meanwhile, three episodes from Extraordinary Attorney Woo will be chosen as the basis for a musical adaptation of the series (according to a press release from EMK Musical Company). It will be exciting to see how far this project goes!
In addition, there have been talks about localizing the show to English.
