Here’s the official synopsis:
Jisoo (Kim Dong-Hee) is a quiet model student who carries a secret inside that no one is aware of. He dreams of living a simple life, but to attain this dream, he leads a shocking double life and becomes involved in organised crime.
Gyuri (Park Ju-Hyun) is the ‘it-girl’ at school with everything, money and brains included. But while it seems she has the perfect life, she feels suffocated by the overbearing expectations of her successful parents at home.
To escape from her parents’ pressure, Gyuri becomes an accomplice to Jisoo and assists him with his operations without any consideration of whether he consents or not. At this point, the story takes a turn for the worse as Jisoo and Gyuri’s business activities spiral out of control, and they are led down a road they cannot go back.
To make matters worse, the school’s number one bad girl Minhee (Jung Da-Bin) and her boyfriend Kitae (Nam Yoon-Su), the undefeated school bully, become entangled in Jisoo and Gyuri’s mess, and all of their lives are thrown headlong into a whirlpool from which none of them can escape.
Extracurricular premieres Apr 29 on Netflix.
