Nam Joo-hyuk unleashes monster blobs into the world when he accidentally lets them loose. Jung Yu-mi is the only one who can see and beat them. Together, they save the world from the monstrous jellies.

Sounds like a perfect recipe for a fun drama.   

Jung plays school nurse Ahn Eun-young. She has special powers to see supernatural Jellies that are invisible to everyone else. She discovers disturbing occurrences at her new school and solves these mysteries with the help of Classical Chinese teacher Hong In-pyo played by Nam.

The ‘Jellies’ are invisible blobs of greed that are unleashed when In-pyo accidentally breaks their containment seal in the school basement. Eun-young is a school nurse who is the only one able to see the jellies.

War against the jellies

She faces the greatest challenge of her life when she battles these supernatural creatures. Fortunately, she discovers that In-pyo has a special energy that recharges her powers and protects her. With the help of the man who had been the cause as well as the cure, she wages war against the Jellies to defend the school and the students.

The character posters reveal each actor surrounded by colorful Jellies. Ahn Eun-young has been fighting a lonely battle against the slimy world of jellies that no one else can see.

Hong In-pyo is curious by nature and he readily steps into this fight to help. As the grandson of the school founder, he is dedicated to protecting it. There is humorous tension between these two awkward characters who are thrown together by circumstance and must become a complete and efficient jelly-fighting team in the process.

The fun and magical Netflix Original “School Nurse Files” will start streaming Sept. 25. It is directed by Lee Kyoung-mi of “Crush and Blush” and “The Truth Beneath.” It is written by fantasy author Chung Se-rang. Chung is the one who wrote the original novel that the series is based on.
