John Horn Speaks With “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” Director Yu In-Silk

FilmWeek Feature 8.26.22

The city of Seoul might be nearly 8,000 miles from Hollywood, but Korean filmmakers have become prominent in local entertainment circles. Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” won five trophies in 2020’s Academy Awards, and “Squid Game” was a streaming breakout last year. Now, the Korean series “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” has become a huge global hit for Netflix. It’s a show about a female lawyer who is on the autism spectrum. She’s fighting not only for acceptance, but also for her clients; in fact, she’s very good at her job. KPCC’s John Horn spoke with the series director, Yu In-sik about the making of the show, and what the series has to say about neurodiverse people.
