Extracurricular activities look good on your high school certificate, but definitely not the types featured in this dark teen Korean television drama- Extracurricular. The main character or the protagonist of our story is a teenage boy named Jisoo. Jisoo struggles to do well in school so that he can get admission into a good college, and finally end up with a great job and good pay. His aim in life is basically to do well, at least better than his parents. And for this, he needs a lot of money, since higher education is not very cheap and he does have certain financial boundaries. So to fulfill his goal, he involves himself in certain ‘extracurricular activities’ relating to the wrong side of the law. He supports himself by coordinating and supporting some young sex workers with the help of a voice disguise and the power of the internet. The sex workers have no idea that he is a young high school student, and thus refers to him as “uncle”. Initially, it had been easy for him to keep his double life a secret, after all, he is a loner and hardly mixes up with people, But things start to get difficult for him when one of his classmates starts to take interest in his life and interfere in his business. The person we are talking about is Gyuri, a girl from a rich family- the type of rich who has everything Jisoo wants. Yet she is not content with her life and wants even more. She is a rebellious teen and hardly obeys her parents and when she finds out about Jisoo’s private life, she wants to be a part of his money-making scheme, even though she does not really need any more wealth than what she already possesses.
Extracurricular is centered around three high school students who start committing crimes to earn money and thus the unpredictable dangers they face as a result.

EXTRACURRICULAR SEASON 1 ending explained- a quick recap.
Extracurricular Season 1 ended with an open-ended climax. Just when Jisoo and Gyuri thought everything was over, Jisoo gets stabbed by a man, who believes he is the reason his life has been ruined. The only person Jisoo can think of for help at the moment is Gyuri. Coincidentally, Gyuri who was supposed to be in Sydney, Australia ends up in his house, and seeing the guy she loved lying bleeding from a stabbed wound, tries to save him. But there seemed to be no hope as the bleeding gets worse, even Gyuri almost gives up and is in all tears while Jisoo lies bleeding, trying to catch his breath with great difficulty. And that is when we see detective Hae-gyeong arriving at the scene to check up on him on receiving a tip. What was expected was for the detective to find them, or just find Jisoo alone, passed out or dead from the excessive bleeding. But instead, what we were shown was the sight of bloodstains everywhere on the staircase. So does that mean, Gyuri managed to escape with Jisoo?
The other question that arises is whether Minhee is alive or not. She was the only other person who knew about Jisoo’s secret, as she herself had been one of the girls who used to work for him, through his site, and she gets to know about him being the mastermind behind the whole site she had been a part of, towards the end of that show. She recorded a confession in an attempt to expose him, and Jisoo tried to destroy it. Thus a struggle between the two started which ended in Jisoo pushing her off the stairs. She is left to bleed to death and we see an ambulance arrive, but that is where the scene gets cut. So now, we are yet to know if she made it. And fans are dying to know these and get some more of this amazing Korean drama Extracurricular Season 2. Every suspense and answer would be revealed in Extracurricular Season 2.
