Extraordinary Attorney Woo: Season 1 finale & Spoilers

Episode 16: Though Unusual and Peculiar

This marks the finale of season 1 and what a beautiful way to end it by Attorney Woo discovering a new emotion – “fulfillment.”

In my Psychology class, we’re repeatedly taught to identify our feelings. It is amazing and extraordinary for Attorney Woo who has Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) was able to discover and name that new feeling. Thanks to the good upbringing of her father that even in the lack of money/power, she turned out well.



This drama grew on me as I see the maturity of Young Woo despite her disability. Her conversations with her parents and peers are thought provoking even the dialogue with herself is heartwarming. No wonder I have made several posts about this Kdrama 😉



In this episode we’ll meet Tae Su-mi’s son and younger brother of Attorney Woo – Sang Hyeon, also a genius and gimbap lover. Many “good” things happened like Attorney Min-woo having a change of heart, bravery of Young Woo and her realizations, confession of Jun-ho, etc. It’s like everything falls into place as they wrap up season 1.


Allow me to share the touching words of Young Woo talking to Tae Su-mi ~

“Sang Hyeon believes you’re a good mom. Don’t betray his belief.”

“You were not a good mother to me, but at the very least, please be a good mother to Sang Hyeon.”


Young Woo began the confrontation by saying that she is like a narwhal in a pod of belugas. Being with different whales and an ocean of many experiences, she appreciates and sees this in a beautiful way. “Though unusual and peculiar” – title of this episode was manifested very well. Jun-ho got back together with Young Woo and their talk about a love for a cat is cute and funny.



After winning the case, the characters gather to eat and celebrate. They are happy, teasing each other as usual. I love this Hanbada team so much!

Attorney Woo is the character we all need in this difficult times. This drama appealed to me in many levels and if you’d agree with me the ending is life-like, it’s meant to go on (as we look forward to season 2).

My Liberation Notes – subtle but deep

While waiting for the next episodes of Our Blues, got curious about this new Kdrama starring Lee Min-kiKim Ji-wonSon Seok-koo, and Lee El.

thought provoking

To stand out among hundreds of K-drama reviews, I’d like to skip the synopsis or plot of this series. It’s a melodrama full of metaphors, deep thoughts and musings.

Main leads are subtly but deeply connected and attracted to each other. Love that goes beyond physical contact, it’s thought-provoking.

You may find it slow and dragging at first, but as you get to know the three siblings especially Mi Jeong (Kim Ji-Won), her thoughts while commuting in and out of Seoul. These siblings are struggling with their own issues, money, huge debt, work, relationships, etc.

Something good will happen to you today…

Written by ParkHae-young, and directed by Kim Suk-yoon, is relatable on many levels, the camaraderie between the co-workers, the after-work gossip, and the random ranting sessions. This drama connects with your consciousness and desires that you feel part of the story.

Mark 6:50

Yes, I believe we all have that desire to feel loved, or to Mi Jeong – be worshipped.
