An adoption of the famous webtoon 'Backstreet Rookie' is a fresh and fun romantic comedy between two unusual people who met by accident 3 years ago. Jung Saet-byul (Kim Yoo-jung) is a high school student known for punching people down. She is strong and sassy. She falls in love with Choi Dae-hyun (Ji Chang-wook) at first sight. 3 years later she gets a part-time job at Dae-Hyun's Convenience store and thus starts the hilarious process of their love story.
Oh I wish this drama did not include scenes where they showed different culture in bad light and oh I wish they had avoided adding the kissing scene in the start. Apart from this the drama is shot brilliantly. It's carried out so well that I was already excited for the next episodes. The story is unique and so are the characters. While watching I felt like I was reading a comic book. The direction was brilliant but too bad I have decided to drop this drama because of it's cultural appropriation. In this day and age, I find it odd that a show and even the cast were ok with such scenes. I hope they educate themselves and realize the kind of damage they might cause with this drama.
I really wish they chose to drop the way they treat the guy with dreadlocks.
