This new trailer is so unique and there's no role that PEB cannot act in

Jun Ho  (KangTaeOh) is Woo Young Woo's (ParkEunBin) "Confidence Keeper". In teaser 2, everyone was telling her what not to do but his lines didn't hv a negative vibes, saying that he's curios abt her.

We look forward to seeing Woo Young-woo, who will grow out of the frame set by the world in her own way and with a new perspective, and Jun-ho Lee, who will be a pillar of strength in her challenges.

About working with Kang Tae-oh, Park Eun-bin said, "I thought that Kang Tae-oh's calm image suited him very well for the role of 'Lee Jun-ho'" and "I feel comfortable in the consistent atmosphere. "Next, Kang Tae-oh said, "Actor Eun-bin Park's passion and affection for the character of 'Woo Young-woo' is extraordinary. She is a wonderful actor who is always thinking and working hard, and there is a lot to learn."

The production team of  "Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo' said, "The change in the emotions of the two people, who grow and communicate as they solve the case together, will be another point to watch." 

On the other hand, 'Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo' depicts the survival of Woo Young-woo, who has a genius brain and an autism spectrum at the same time, and grows into a true lawyer by solving various cases.

I'm looking forward to this soooooo much. PEB is pretty muhc my favourite Korean actress. I feel like she picks very good roles and she is very, very natural in her acting. I also feel like she's tried and succeeded in so many characters from quirky housemate to loud tomboy sports manager to soft, demure musical student. Also I think I like her friendly image. And she's pretty :heart:

 

And Kang Tae Oh!!! Yayyyy is he the main lead this time? :thinking:

Bahahah...I have one more - Jinx at First. I have yet to add it in as I just caught the 1st two episodes. It has been a busy time RL making it hard for me to sit down & indulge. But I will prioritise this show. 

 

Kang Ki Young's stills. He talks about his role. He will be the one to hire WYW

 

"Jung Myeong-seok is not friendly, but he is a senior lawyer who fights for the rights of new lawyers. Unlike the roles I've shown you in the past, I've reduced a lot of mischievous laughter, and I've been equipped with leadership and a smart figure that can encompass new lawyers."

always like a good legal drama, but the posters are soooooo cutesy 😭

I don't think this will be a hardcore legal drama. In an interview I read, the PD & the writer said that ultimately the message is about WYW's experiences as a lawyer who's on the autism spectrum. The message is about the growth and unusual situations she and those around her will experience. They do understand that there are a lot of concerns about stereotyping the condition , so a lot of research and work has gone into Park Eun Bin's role. Suppose to be a healing drama.

 

Kang Ki Young says this is the first time he plays a not so comical role - as in he's a very serious boss. A tsundere type character who was quite apprehensive about having WYW in his firm but ends up becoming a good mentor to her.  

 

As for my baby Kang Tae Oh who plays Lee jun Ho , I understand that he is supposedly a songwriter who works at firm and helps WYW. ( Paralegal clerk?) Anyhow he is warm, friendly and well-liked. 
In an interview I read on Naver, this is what the writer said:

 I wanted WYW & LJH's moments to be precious and special enough to be kept in a frame. KangTaeOh made my heart pound as I watched him from afar. With his pure & friendly eyes, he made romantic moments sparkle.
