Backstreet Rookie: Review of the drama

Backstreet Rookie is a South Korean drama is was released on 19 June 2020 and continued with 16 episodes till 8 August 2020. In the drama Backstreet Rookie, we shall see Choi Dae Hyun and Jung Saet Byul as the leading characters. After working himself to death, Choi Dae Hyun decided to hire a person to help him run his convenience store. He reluctantly hired Jung Saet Byul, who used to be a troublemaker. It caused problems between Dae Hyun and his girlfriend, Yoo Yeon Joo. Lately, we saw him get more concerned about Jung and finally got obsessed with her. He always used to be very worried and suspicious about her. The love triangle got super interesting when a handsome celebrity friend of hers gets into the picture.

The drama taught several lessons like not to judge someone based on their looks and background. Jung was stated as a troublemaker as she had no parents, and we have seen her raising her sister alone. But that’s not the real case. Also, Dae Hyun was looked down upon as he was from a community college. There he was mistreated, and thus, later on he ended up opening a convenience store. Also, in the very earlier episodes of the drama, it was very clear that Dae Hyun wasn’t meant to be with his girlfriend as she was very much embarrassed by him. That’s not how a relationship works. The drama depicts romantic relationships as well as several family issues. When it comes to the chemistry between Dae Hyun and Jung, it was amazing, crazy, strong. The age gap between the two leads in real life is quite huge but on-screen, their chemistry has been legit. The bond was very balanced between the two in the drama. At the end of the drama, we found Jung to leave a letter to Dae Hyun, giving him all space. Also, she left to work on a farm. The ending of the drama is quite nice and fuzzy. Since the drama is based on a webtoon mentioned earlier, it had the comic book special effects and editing of the action scenes.

Overall, the drama received mixed reviews from critics and audiences. I would recommend you to watch Backstreet Rookie. The drama itself is very light-hearted and lowkey. We shall discuss the streaming platforms shortly.
