“Extraordinary Attorney Woo” has dropped a close look at Kang Tae Oh’s heart-fluttering transformation!
The drama will tell the story of Woo Young Woo (played by Park Eun Bin), a young lawyer with Asperger’s syndrome who joins a major law firm. Due to her high IQ of 164, impressive memory, and creative thought process, the brilliant Woo Young Woo graduates at the top of her class from the prestigious Seoul National University for both college and law school – but she still finds herself struggling when it comes to social interactions.
On June 16, ENA Channel unveiled new photos of Kang Tae Oh as Lee Joon Ho, a popular employee at the law firm. The stills encapsulate Lee Joon Ho’s warm and soft charisma as he looks upon someone with a loving gaze. His sweet smile is a good example of his kind personality and makes it obvious why he’s so loved at work.
Not only is he a great person, Lee Joon Ho is also a focused employee who doesn’t make a fuss and is great at his job. Within his seemingly perfect life, Lee Joon Ho experiences an unexpected turning point when he meets the intriguing Woo Young Woo who he can’t help but be drawn to.
Kang Tae Oh revealed that he read the script of “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” in one sitting when he first received it and added, “I wanted to melt into and act as a warm character who supports and encourages others.”
He continued, “If I were to pick keywords for Joon Ho’s charms, it would be pure and harmless. Without painting them a certain way, he’s honest about his feelings. He’s cheerful and also has a warm side.” Kang Tae Oh added, “This is a project that captures the joys and sorrows of various people in situations and circumstances that may exist around us in our own lives. You will be able to share emotions with others and feel as if you’ve grown.”
“Extraordinary Attorney Woo” will premiere jointly on seezn and Netflix on June 20 at 9 p.m. KST.
