ENA’s popular drama ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo‘, which is about to end a day before the end, meets viewers again with season 2.
Lee Sang-baek, CEO of Astory, who produced ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo‘, said in an interview with E-Daily on August 17th, “Thanks to the support of many people, we will produce season 2 of ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo‘. The goal is to make season 2 aired at that time.” CEO Lee said, “It is not easy to coordinate the schedules of the cast and production team, so we will have to go through a lot of discussion.” CEO Lee said, “As long as there are no abnormalities, the goal is to leave more than 90% of the members as they are.
CEO Lee will continue to raise viewers’ interest in the drama through the production of various additional contents using ‘Young-Woo Woo”s IP (intellectual property), such as webtoons, musical productions, and merchandise sales, which are already serialized before season 2 airs. It was also added as a policy.
‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo‘ is a drama depicting the process of a new lawyer, Woo Young-woo (Park Eun-bin), who has a genius brain and an autism spectrum at the same time, joins a large law firm called ‘Han-bada’ and grows into a lawyer.
In the beginning, it did not receive much attention as it was organized on the unfamiliar channel ENA with the unfamiliar subject of the autism spectrum. However, it gained sympathy and gained word of mouth by raising the topic of various issues that existed in our society but did not receive adequate attention. Based on true stories, such as women, small business owners, sexual minorities, and North Korean defectors, as well as the designation of natural monuments and the abolition of cultural property admission fees, various events that may have occurred in the real world were narrated into episodes and received favorable reviews.
The ratings, which started at 0.9% on June 29 (based on Nielsen Korea nationwide paid households), broke through 4% in the third episode, and exceeded 11% in the 7th episode. In the 9th episode, where actor Gu Gwan-hwa made a special appearance, it broke its own highest ratings record with 15.8%. Considering that the last episode usually has the best ratings, there is a possibility that Woo Young-woo‘s final episode ratings will exceed 20%.
With the news of season 2 production ahead of its ending on the 18th, attention is focused on whether ‘Woo Young-woo‘ will be able to renew the beauty of Yoo Jong in the last episode.
