The makers of Netflix's Korean hit drama "Extraordinary Attorney Woo" have received offers from the U.S. for a remake.

"We have received a proposal for a remake from the United States, and the production company is currently reviewing the offer," the drama's production company ASTORY said in a statement, Soompi reported.

"Extraordinary Attorney Woo," which currently enjoys high viewership ratings on Korean cable network ENA, follows the story of a feisty lawyer, Woo Young-Woo, who uses her creative thought processes to solve legal cases. Despite growing up with Asperger's syndrome (a form of autism spectrum disorder), Woo bravely navigates the demands of her career with the help of people who have learned to believe in her capabilities.

Led by Park Eun-Bin as lawyer Woo, the drama also stars Kang Ki-Young, Kang Tae-Oh, Joo Jong-Hyuk and Ha Yun-Kyung.

The series' fifth episode, which was aired on Wednesday, saw a 10-fold increase in rating with 9.138% as compared to its first episode with a rating of 0.9%, according to Nielsen Korea. The sixth episode, which was aired Thursday, scored an even higher rating of 9.569%.

The drama is receiving positive responses from viewers who could relate to the lead character in various ways.

"Female representation of disabled characters are rarely seen in popular culture. May this drama become a milestone for varied representations of people with disabilities," a fan commented below a preview video of "Extraordinary Attorney Woo" on YouTube.

"As someone on the spectrum, I've became absolutely obsessed with the series she's the cutest and its so refreshing seeing my struggles portrayed in a Kdrama!! It may differ from person to person but I love the way they portrayed it and it doesn't feel offensive to me, it looks like a lot of love went into creating her character," wrote another viewer.

"Extraordinary Attorney Woo" is not the first Korean series to get a remake offer. The medical drama "Good Doctor" was remade in 2017 with "Star Trek" actor Daniel Dae-Kim as its general producer.

"Good Doctor" tells the story of a brilliant young surgeon with autism and Savant syndrome who relocates from the countryside to join the surgical unit of a prestigious hospital.
