“Is there really a friend like Dong Geu-ra-mi of ‘Extraordinary Attorney Woo’?” A sad answer from real people with autism

People with autism talked about whether they actually have non-disabled friends like Woo Young-woo (Park Eun-bin), a lawyer with autism spectrum in ENA’s “Extraordinary Attorney Woo.”

On August 7th, on the YouTube channel Cereal, which has about 310,000 subscribers, a video titled ‘Do you have a friend like Dong Geu-ra-mi? We asked real people with autism about this’ was posted.

In the video, Dong Geu-ra-mi (played by Joo Hyun-young), a non-disabled friend of Woo Young-woo (played by Park Eun-bin), a lawyer with autism spectrum in ENA’s “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”, was mentioned.

The mother of A, who has autism, said, “In fact, autistic people have very few, if not none, non-disabled friends.”

A’s mother said, “I thought my son could feel happier if he hangs out with non-disabled people, but that’s just a dream,” she added, “I hope there will be opportunities for disabled people to gather often.”

Another person with autism, B, talked about their difficult school days.

B confessed, “In my case, I was bluffing too much when I was in middle school that they started to bully me by using that as an excuse.”

B said, “They say it’s a joke, but I can’t say anything because I think it would be more terrible if I talk more as I already experienced their humiliating prank.”

Yoon Eun-ho, Korea’s 1st professor with autism, also spoke up.

Yoon Eun-ho said, “It can be said that 99% of people with autism have experienced harassment,” adding, “When I looked into the motives of the perpetrators, I found out that the people who commit violence are recognized by their peers.”

Non-disabled C, who comes from a school that has people who bully the disabled at school, said, “The kids use the word ‘disability’ like a slang” adding, “When any friend acts a little lacking, they call that friend ‘Woo Young-woo’.”
