Kim Dong Hee's returning to Netflix sooner than you think.

Netflix's newest original K-drama is almost here! And if the success of their current library of Korean content is anything to go by, we're keeping our fingers crossed that their upcoming dramatic action thriller, Extracurricular, is up to par with its predecessors as well.

That said, if you need more convincing, here's why we can't wait to give the show a try:

1. It's Kim Dong Hee's first lead role.

At the risk of spelling out the obvious, the upcoming series' biggest selling point for us would have to be its lead star, Itaewon Class' Kim Dong Hee. From playing a high school hearbtreaker in A-Teen, to the timid yet reliable Jang Geun Soo in Itaewon Class, Dong Hee traverses new waters with his character in Extracurricular. Here, he's set to take on a more action-packed role as Jisoo, a quiet model student with a dark secret who falls into a life crime, if only to maintain his "simple life." Starring alsongise Dong Hee are Park Ju HyunNam Yoon Su, and Jung Da Bin as his schoolmates who get entangled in Jisoo's choices.

2. It's being helmed by veteran director Kim Jin Min.

For someone who has quite the meaty reportoire under his belt including shows like Lawless Lawyer, The Liar and His Lover, Marriage Contract, and God of War, we're confident that Netflix's newest original K-drama is in good hands. What's more, the show is also introducing fresh writing talent from aspiring screenwriter Jin Han Sae.

3. Extracurricular is unlike any other K-dramas you've seen before.

This is especially true if you've so far only explored the land of light-hearted romantic comedies. Described as "an offbeat and intense drama," it trails the lives of four high school students who end up choosing a life of crime, and therefore have to face the dire consequences of their actions.
