The newest K-Drama Extraordinary Attorney Woo is a series that is known for breaking down stereotypes and finding ways to send out messages through the storylines. The main character Woo Young Woo (Park Eun Bin) is the first autistic Korean attorney, and the series shows her journey in the world of work.
In particular, the blossoming relationship between Woo Young Woo and Lee Jun Ho (Kang Tae Oh) has captured the hearts of netizens as the two realize their feelings for each other.
Of course, everyone wants them to get together. Yet, there are usually some conventions in relationships when it comes to gender roles.
However, the recent episode of Extraordinary Attorney Woo has broken that down after Woo Young Woo found herself becoming a true “gentleman” towards her crush Jun Ho.
During the episode, one of the men at her friend Dong Gue Rami’s work explained how he acts in a relationship with someone he likes. As expected, Woo Young Woo remembered them all.
When she was eating with Jun Ho, she suddenly remembered that pulling out the chair of the person you like is praised. Before Jun Ho had the chance to sit down, she rushed and pulled his chair out so he could sit down.
Another huge suggestion was that when you are walking, it is polite to stand closest to the curb to protect the person you like. As Jun Ho and Woo Young Woo were going to catch a taxi, Woo Young Woo made sure that Jun Ho was standing inside the curb, much to his confusion.
Despite his protests, Woo Young Woo made sure Jun Ho was on the inside and even opened the taxi door for him.
Later in the episode, when Jun Ho was carrying heavy boxes, Woo Young Woo caught up with him and took the load off so he wasn’t carrying anything too heavy.
When Jun Ho got very confused, he asked why Woo Young was doing all these nice things and initially thought he had done something wrong. Netizens’ hearts couldn’t handle it when she replied, “It’s because I like you. I like you, so I’m being nice.”
When the episode aired, netizens were obsessed with the role reversals and that Woo Young Woo was being a “gentleman” toward Jun Ho. Many also joked that the two were battling for who the nicest person in the world was.
Geurami told her to be nice to Junho the way he is to her to confuse him so Youngwoo even pulled out a chair for him and offered her food LMFAO
