Feel-good drama Extraordinary Attorney Woo is the gift that keeps on giving.
It was reported earlier that the drama has been turning its actors into stars due to their stellar performances.
It seems we can add another actor to that list.
Actress Kim Hieora wasn’t very well known before the drama’s sixth episode.
In the episode, the actor plays a North Korean defector on the run from police for five years for the sake of her young daughter. In the episode, the mother turns herself in and turns to Attorneys Woo Young Woo and Choi Soo Yeon (played by Yoon Kyeong Ha) in hopes she will be reunited with her daughter sooner than later.
From Kim Hieora’s first scene meeting with the lawyers, the actress made it evident that she wasn’t your basic character actor.
