Here is the main reason why Park Eun Bin originally declined to accept the role in the ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo’ when it was first offered to her.
Park Eun Bin’s Reason
According to a report published in the Digital Spy, Park Eun Bin originally declined to accept the role because of its sensitivity. it was reported that she declined it a couple of times because her role here is a lawyer who has autism and graduated top of her class.
She said “I had to think about this being a drama, so there would be some media influence. I did not want to make a bad impact on the ASD (autism spectrum disorder) community,” However, she was only convinced to accept the role after director Yoo In-shik and writer Moon Ji-won, whom she worked with in ‘Stove League’ and ‘Age of Youth‘, told her to accept it, Soompi reports.
Park added “I knew that they were a wonderful director and a wonderful writer. So I made my decision that I wanted to be a part of this project. And I think it’s a great choice that I made.”
Further, Park Eun Bin continues to feel the pressure in playing the role because she does not want to perpetuate any forms of negative stereotypes about people with autism.
