The drama, starring actress Park Eun Bin, has become an overnight success due to word-of-mouth. Everyone is in love with the heartwarming story about an attorney on the Autism Spectrum.

About an autistic 27-year-old lawyer. Due to her high IQ of 164, impressive memory, and creative thought process, the brilliant Woo Young Woo graduated at the top of her class from a prestigious law school.

Aside from the lovable characters and skilled writing, viewers are especially impressed with the CGI for the whales.

If you haven’t seen the K-Drama yet, you might be wondering how whales are included in the storyline.

The main character, Attorney Woo, loves whales. Her entire bedroom is decorated with whales, and she frequently finds connections to whales in everyday conversations, spouting facts, especially to her colleague Lee Jun Ho (Kang Tae Oh).

In the drama, whales occasionally appear via her imagination to bring her comfort or when she has a “Eureka!” moment rather than a lightbulb.

Still, the whales can’t help but remind us of something else…

ARMY (BTS‘s fandom) is especially reminded of BTS due to the inclusion of whales in the K-Drama. Since the first episode, it put many in mind of the K-Pop group due to the symbolism of whales.

Over the years, whales have become an icon in the BTS fandom, along with purple hearts.

In 2015, BTS released “Whalien 52” for the album The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2. It is “a song about the loneliest whale in the world,” the 52-hertz whale. Other whales are unable to hear its voice because of its unusually high frequency.

It is simultaneously being the loneliest whale in the world that sings too high to be heard and being an alien — Whalien 52.


…to most recently in their self-designed mobile game BTS Island: In the SEOM.


And BTS’s Jin is a fan of whales himself.



…until one-day TinyTAN appear and bring to life the whale on her T-Shirt to take them on an adventure.


Naturally, it feels so appropriate that whales are included in Extraordinary Attorney Woo.

So, an ARMY (@teteverry on Twitter) edited the BTS song “00:00 (Zero O’Clock)” over the scene of Attorney Woo riding on public transportation with her headphones on when a whale appears in the background.

Since then, the video has been reposted across social media and gone viral with 488K views at the time of writing.

It would be amazing if “00:00 (Zero O’Clock)” or “Whalien 52” appeared in the drama somehow.
