EP 8 – Extraordinary Attorney Woo

Spoiler Alert: this post may contain dialogue or scenes from Extraordinary Attorney Woo episode 8.


This is such a beautiful episode and so it’s a must to share this in a separate post. Quoting the conversation and exchanges betweem the mom – Attorney Tae Sumi and daughter Attorney Young-woo and other touching dialogues. I’ll be focusing on the mushy side of relationships and family.

The case they are handling is a direct continuation of episode 7 – tale of Sodeok-dong. She discovered that her real mother is the famous and CEO of Taesan law firm. The touching revelation of how her dad made sacrifices and gave up his future for his daughter – Attorney Young-woo. We all adore Gwangho-shi as a selfless parent who can give up everything for his child.

Do you not recognize me?

– Young-woo

I feel sad for attorney Young-woo and her dad… We can’t deny the fact there are some parents like that, prioritizing herself before the child. It can be a true representation and bitter reality of homes where children are compromised.

I’m Woo Gwang-ho’s daughter…


Was reminded of a story about a woman who was already married but instead of leaving her child to the husband, she brought the child and escaped with another man. That woman was also highly ambitious like Tae Sumi, but poor guy wasn’t enough for her.

I wanted leave Hanbada. But recently, I found out who you are. So I don’t think I can work here (Taesan law firm).

– Young-Woo

In this episode you’ll see attorney Woo’s emotional side when she confronted her mom who abandoned her.

I was trying to leave Hanbada to be independent of my father and be a real adult.

But I can’t leave my dad, just to join my mother’s firm.

– Young-woo

The acting in this encounter is superb, paying attention to both Tae Su-mi and Attorney Woo’s. With opposite reactions as Young-woo has ASD while the mom is in shock.

Especially not when my mother gave birth to me but abandoned me. And doesn’t recognized me at all.

Even now.

Thank you for inviting me to join in Taesan, but I’m going to continue to work in Hanbada.

And I will stay by my father’s side.

– Young-woo

Maybe we can try to place ourselves in Tae Su-mi’s position, yes she has her reasons. But I was hoping she could at least try to reach out to her…

Do you resent me for what I’ve done?

– Tae Sumi

It was nice when we looked at the tree together on top of the hill in Sodeok-dong. I wanted to meet you at least once.

It was nice to meet you…

– Young-woo

Nothing is more heartwrenching. I mean it, nothing!!! Who else cried a bucket in this episode? (TT) Background music is equally sentimental and poignant. This episode ended with the scene from the tree in Sodoek-dong’s hill.

I can’t imagine how Young-woo must have felt to learn that the woman she was so fascinated with is actually her mother, but kudos to her for handling the situation maturely. This shows how well her dad raised her, full of love and sacrifices. Despite the mother’s absence and her disability, she turned out okay and very mature.

Gifts any mom would love on Mother’s Day

There’s a myriad of gifts to give your mom this Mother’s Day but giving her something useful, practical and that will last is what we all desire for our special “Mama”.

So here are five (5) gifts any mom would love to receive on Mother’s Day. 

  • Organic soaps

Every mom loves to be pampered and bath time is no exemption. Lathering in organic, handmade and natural soaps is the most inexpensive luxury. Main reason is because they often lack time and just stick with the basic skin care – a gentle bar of soap. Gift her with one that is not just any soap but also effective to remove skin problems like acne, pimple marks, warts, and other imperfections. Tried and tested by the Japanese – Kojic Acid Soap is a perfect example, and so are the likes of Rice, Oatmeal, Gluthatione, & Papaya Soaps.

  • Skin Care

The fame of K-beauty is due to its emphasis on skin care. From the simplest sheet mask to the more sophisticated serum and oils. The goal is to have clear, smooth and fair skin. And who doesn’t like that?!

  • Travel essentials

Mothers don’t need to travel in order to have these must-haves, these are essential items in any working mom. Commuting can bring so much stress to our dear momsies especially in dealing with Manila traffic. Bag organisers or cosmetic bags are very practical and so is eye cooling mask. Relaxes tired eyes from a day’s work or trip.
