The hottest K-Drama around has to be Extraordinary Attorney Woo, starring Park Eun Bin and Kang Tae Oh. The story follows Woo Young Woo as she tries to break prejudices as the first Korean autistic attorney.
Alongside the beautiful storyline, the blossoming relationship between Woo Young Woo and Lee Jun Ho (Kang Tae Oh) has also gained attention. Viewers saw their relationship slowly blossom in the early episodes.
However, after episodes of heartwarming stories and watching the relationship between Woo Young Woo and Lee Jun Ho blossom, the recent episode sent shocks through the K-Drama world.
During their visit to Jeju, Lee Jun Ho invited Woo Young Woo to meet her sister, and while there, she overhears a conversation between the siblings. The sister shares her concerns about their relationship and how they shouldn’t tell his parents.
Of course, it upset Woo Young Woo, and she chose to confront Lee Jun Ho while they were looking for dolphins. In a heartbreaking scene, Woo Young Woo explains that they shouldn’t be a couple, but a sudden thought about the case has her leaving without hearing Jun Ho’s reaction.
Yet, despite remaining calm and being the embodiment of a gentleman throughout the series, this was too much for Lee Jun Ho. After falling in love with her, Lee Jun Ho shares his own thoughts and his heartache from hearing that Woo Young Woo doesn’t want to continue the relationship he was fighting for.
When the scene was aired, netizens couldn’t hide their sadness and heartache at watching their favorite K-Drama couple possibly be finished before it even started.

Yet, as heartwrenching as the scene was to watch, the behind-the-scenes footage couldn’t have been any more different.
While filming the scenes by the sea, Park Eun Bin and Kang Tae Oh were chatting to the camera. Although Woo Young Woo might not have seen any dolphins, they shared their experiences.
Park Eun Bin: What did we see?
Kang Tae Oh: We saw dolphins.
Park Eun Bin: Honestly, he saw it first but…
Kang Tae Oh: I kept saying, “There are dolphins!” but no one believed me.
Even though they were told, like Woo Young Woo, that it isn’t easy to spot dolphins, the two couldn’t hide their excitement that they actually saw them. Park Eun Bin added, “We saw lots of them, about 20 maybe. I’ve never seen that many dolphins in my entire life.”
They quickly went back into “actor” mode as they filmed the heartbreaking scenes. Despite being one of the nicest and most positive people, Kang Tae Oh’s persona changed when he channeled the hurt Lee Jun Ho would’ve felt.
After the scene was filmed, Kang Tae Oh returned and cemented his “gentleman” status. Although the sun was going down and they must’ve been tired, he waited around and took some adorable photos of Park Eun Bin.
The actress looked absolutely glowing as she was enjoying the beautiful scenery and Kang Tae Oh made sure to get the perfect shot.
The dedication of Kang Tae Oh to get the perfect photo of Park Eun Bin had netizens swooning. Despite the scene being shot having a darker tone, the relationship between the two leading actors was enough to make a very different atmosphere.
Gonna miss these two 🥺😭
