Fans are content with the K-drama’s non-complicated ending
Knowing that Young-woo’s relationship with Su-mi was in jeopardy of going public, fans believed the Netflix K-drama would end with some drama. But fans on Reddit are more than happy with the Extraordinary Attorney Woo finale.
“I can actually say that I am very satisfied with the ending!! With the announcement of most likely having a season 2, the writers wrapped up the larger plot lines pretty well. Was this an uphill journey for the last half of the show? hell yeah it was!! BUT WE DID IT EVERYONE WE MADE IT!!” said a fan.
While fans feel there could have been more to explore in the storyline, the ending was fitting for each character. “Idc what people say this is such a great way to end the series in the most non-dramatic soapy angst way possible,” said a fan.
The finale also tied up the drama of Young-woo and Su-mi well. Instead of becoming public, CEO Han changed her plan to her advantage by using Su-mi’s son. Overall the drama gave fans what they wanted for Young-woo. “The last parting subway was nice subtle way of saying she is now not alone, The symbolism with her now boyfriend, friends and family. The fulfilment. My heart is happy :).” said a fan. But what is next for the second season?
‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo’ hopefully brings back Young-woo’s brother
While the Extraordinary Attorney Woo finale tied up all the loose ends, there are still a few storylines people want to see for the second season. Min-woo went from one of the most hated characters to someone who gets a story arc. In the drama, he develops feelings for Su-yeon after she admits hers. She begins to change his mindset, and he decides to live “foolishly.” Fans hope to see whether or not their feelings flourish.
There is also Attorney Jung’s story as he recovers from cancer and gets back together with his ex-wife. He also promised to quit the firm. “I’m glad she was able to say her small piece and also give him an ultimatum (whether or not he takes it, we shall find out in 2 years LOL),” said a fan. There is also the matter of Su-mi’s secret.
Regarding a second season, fans hope to see Young-woo develop her relationships further as she continues as a lawyer on the autism spectrum. “Imo, there’s room for character growth in a potential s2, but it’s not necessary either. I’d love to see Youngwoo and Sanghyeon grow closer, Minwoo’s development, and also more of the backstory between Sumi and Seonyoung. It could go both ways! If s2 is truly in the works, I have faith that they’ll explore these storylines.”
