Poll: Whales Don't Sing Because They Have an Answer, They Sing Because They Have a Song  

22 members have voted

  1. 1. Why did Young Woo's mom abandon Young Woo at birth?

    • She is opportunistic, and being married and having a child with a commoner is not a good look. It would have destroyed her future. She needs to put herself first.
    • Her family forced her to give up Young Woo. She's still struggling with the guilt. Like they say out of sight, out of mind.
    • Young Woo was kidnapped after birth by her family. She had no plans of giving Young Woo up. She's protecting Young Woo from her family harming her more.
      0
    • I don't really care. She's acting like mommy dearest and is being very selfish, and Young Woo is better off without her.
    • Something else. What?
  2. 2. Kwon Min Woo: will his character be redeemed in the end?

    • Yes. He will understand that he has done a lot of bad things, and apologize.
    • Maybe. He seems to be pretty good friends with Jun Ho, so it's possible that he will want to refrain from hurting his friend now that he knows Jun Ho and Young Woo are dating.
    • No. Even a cockroach has a better character than him. He deserves to be fired. Also, maybe get stung by bees. And a couple of fire ants.
    • Something else. What?
  3. 3. What is wrong with Attorney Jung Myeong Seok? Why is he coughing up blood?

    • Omo! He is probably really sick from cancer. Plaese don't let him die!
    • His diet has been unhealthy lately and he has been very stressed. Maybe it's actually a gastrointestinal issue - like an ulcer or something else that can be treated!
    • I don't know, but is that trip to Jeju Island in the next episode his last farewell trip before he succumbs to whatever he has? I can't take it if he dies!
    • Something else. What?

Park Eun Bin In Talks to Play a Lawyer with Asperger Syndrome in the Upcoming Series

by krishkim 3 months ago

Park Eun Bin drama

 

According to Sports Chosun, Park was cast to play the title role in Strange Lawyer Woo Young Woo (literal title). It follows a 27-year-old woman with Asperger syndrome, Woo Young Woo, as she starts working as a lawyer in a large firm.

If she joins the project, Park will play Woo Young Woo, a new lawyer at a firm, Baekryong. Woo has autism spectrum disorder (ASD), previously called Asperger’s syndrome. With a high IQ of 164, outstanding memory, and creative thinking, Woo graduated from Korea’s best university at the top of her class. She is the smartest lawyer in Korea. However, the low EQ and lack of social skills are her weakness.

In response, Park’s agency Namoo Actors shared, “The actress is contemplating the offer.”

Now, Park is one of the hottest actresses in the industry. Just last year, she made back-to-back hits with Hot Stove League and Do you like Brahms? Not long ago, she finished filming the new film The Witch 2 and is currently working on KBS’s new series Affection.

 
Meanwhile, Strange Lawyer Woo Young Woo will most likely be programmed as the new SBS series. The Dr. Romantic series director Yoo In Sik and screenwriter Moon Ji Won will join hands for the project.

On the October 7th, a representative from the entertainment industry told Sports Chosun, "Kang Ki-young has been selected as the lead role in the new SBS drama 'Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo' (written by Moon Ji-won, directed by Yoo In-sik)." 'Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo' is a drama about a 27-year-old woman with autism spectrum disorder, Woo Young-woo, who works as a lawyer for a large law firm.

 

Kang Ki-young takes on the role of Jung Myeong-seok, a mentor to Woo Young-woo and a senior lawyer at a law firm Baekryong. Jung Myeong-seok's life struggles to not live like his father. A character who does not resemble his father, who was his arrogance, but lives fiercely to repay the grace of his mother who raised him by himself. He became a trusted senior lawyer in his early 40s and said, 'I will not give consideration to people who cannot work because of a disability. Rather, I will teach you more rigorously!' He works as a boss who meets a strange subordinate, Woo Young-woo.

 

Park Eun-bin has already been appointed as Woo Young-woo, the main character, and Kang Tae-oh is preparing for Lee Jun-ho, an employee of Baekryong's song and dance team.

Kang Tae-oh, the main character of 'Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo'...

 

2021100613142682851_1.jpg

 

Actor Kang Tae-oh has been cast as the male lead in the drama 'Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo'.

As a result of Star News coverage on the October 6th, Kang Tae-oh took on the role of Lee Jun-ho in the SBS new drama 'Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo' (written by Moon Ji-won, directed by Yoo In-sik, produced by A-story).

'Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo' is the story of a 27-year-old woman with autism spectrum disorder, Woo Young-woo, becoming a lawyer at a large law firm.

 

In the drama, Kang Tae-oh plays Lee Jun-ho, an employee of a law firm Baekryong. Although Lee Jun-ho possessed 'warm charm', he was not conscious of his popularity or took advantage of it, and he had a personality that puts others first. Unswayed by any temptation, Lee Jun-ho sets out to solve the case by helping Woo Young-woo, a strange lawyer who works a lot. In addition, Lee Jun-ho and Woo Young-woo will add fun to the viewers with his chemistry.

Kang Tae-oh, who takes on the role of Lee Jun-ho, is raising expectations that he will capture the hearts of viewers by exuding his unique handsome charm.

 

Kang Tae-oh established himself as a 'leading actor' through 'Chosun Rocco - Nokdujeon', 'Run On' and 'One day, destruction came through the front door of my house' . Therefore, we are looking forward to his performance in 'Mysterious Lawyer Woo Young-woo'.

Meanwhile, Park Eun-bin is considering the role of Woo Young-woo, the female lead in 'Mysterious Lawyer Woo Young-woo'.

Park Eun-bin becomes Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo in new drama

by tccolb

With her current drama heading into its middle stretch, Park Eun-bin (The King’s Affection) has announced her next project: Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo. The drama takes a humanistic approach in exploring the legal sphere, with Park Eun-bin playing the titular character of Woo Young-woo.

 

In many areas of her education and law career, Woo Young-woo has excelled thanks to her high IQ and photographic memory. However, she struggles to relate to the people around her due to Asperger’s syndrome and a low EQ. When she starts to work at a large law firm, the story follows Woo Young-woo’s growth as she learns how to connect with others and turn her weaknesses into a strength.

I’ve been so impressed by Park Eun-bin since her performances in Secret Door and Age of Youth, and I really love how she continues to challenge herself by tackling different genres and roles. There’s not much to go by yet for this new drama, but I hope it’s a good character piece and that it’s treated with care.

 
Directing for the drama is PD Yoo In-shik (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim 2), and scripts will be penned by screenwriter Moon Ji-won (Innocent Witness).

Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo is currently still in the planning stages and is expected to release next year on several streaming platforms, including Netflix.

The actor in the leading role looks like an actual attorney. I started to love this profession one year ago and watched different TV series about persons working as attorneys and lawyers. From time to time, I even think to get another high education and become an attorney. Last year, I had some problems and used some services of an attorney from swpdxlaw.com. I liked so much communicating with him. Most of all, I liked that he helped me deal with my problems and he was telling a lot of interesting facts about our juridical system.

the confidence and trust pd Yoo has in PEB to portray Woo Youngwoo! he was willing to wait a year for her to finish tka! And, PEB is as diligent as always, consulting a professor to portray this character! i dont think there will any serious romance in this drama though, probably similar to judge vs judge or ghost detective, or something like good doctor!

I have always loved watching TV shows or movies about legal drama. I have been a fan of them ever since I watched Suits, my all-time favorite show. I also like How to get away with murder, but it doesn't have the same vibe as Suits. I actually started to get interested in how law firms or law schools work after reading the articles on https://criminaldefense.com/service/medical-license-defense/. I have given becoming a lawyer some thought, but I don't think it's the right career path for me. I believe that watching lawyers do their thing on TV makes much more sense for me!
