Must watch if you love crime shows

10/10 hands down love this show and can’t wait for more, everything was good about this shows from the plot to the acting. This show had me a edge with what will happened next, I haven’t reacted to a show like this I’m years. I’ve watched it all on two days, I couldn’t stop. Highly recommend watching it if you are a fan of any crime tv shows or if you also like 13 reason why

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

This character-driven drama (which is dubbed into English on Netflix) creates a compelling world by combining stories about teenage school life and serious criminal activity. While Ji-soo awkwardly deals with the school's annoying guidance counselor (played by Park Hyun-kwon), bullies, and a toxic parent, both Gyu-ri and Min-hee cope with their own insecurities and growing pains as they enter into adulthood. However, neither the law or moral values are factors in their collective sphere as they navigate the criminal world with an almost-sociopathic ease.

Extracurricular's characters are unapologetic, and not particularly likable. But the relationships between them grow more interesting and complex, which makes them worth investing in. Meanwhile, as Ji-soo's criminal enterprise expands, the stakes get higher, and create lots of entertaining suspense. The result is a binge-worthy series that is as thrilling as it is disturbing for those old enough to handle it.
