Once again, K-drama fans are gushing over Kim Dong Hee, as the celeb stars in his latest series called Extracurricular. 

Dong Hee starred as the rebel ‘bastard son’ of the Chairman of Jangga Co. in the socially relevant youth drama “Itaewon Class,” and now he’s got his own launchpad for stardom.   

The Korean actor now portrays the role of Jisoo, an intelligent student who works as a security service provider in an illegal business, and does this in order to make ends meet. 

The story gets a lot more complicated as it goes on, especially when three of his classmates get involved in his secret world.
