Is Extraordinary Attorney Woo A Good Kdrama? 

Although brilliant, Attorney Woo Young Woo cannot find a job due to having autism. After accepting a job offer at Hanbada, her adult life finally begins.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Extraordinary Attorney Woo win legal battles and talk about whales each week.
