Backstreet Rookie Episode 8: Release Date & Streaming Details

‘Backstreet Rookie’, the fun and quirky Korean drama, starring Ji Chang Wook and Kim Yoo Jung, is based on the eponymous, superhit webtoon. The story follows a wimpy convenience store manager Choi Dae Hyun and his gorgeous, spirited part-time employee Jung Saet Byul. Colorful, aptly-paced, and infused with manhwa-style effects, it begins with Saet Byul having a crush on Dae Hyun the moment he gives her some advice. Yes, the tale is funny and lighthearted but it has some doses of introspection as well. For instance, behind Saet Byul’s carefree exterior, she hides her painful past. She also needs to tend to her younger sister.

On the other hand, the simple yet handsome Dae Hyun is easily manipulated and sometimes, startled by the presence of strong females around him. The naive Dae Hyun has every chance of falling into the trap that the confident Saet Byul has woven for him. Across the episodes, we actually see the two displaying a fair amount of chemistry, and we cannot wait for the sparks to fly. The only issue is Yoo Yeon Joo, Dae Hyun’s current girlfriend, who is definitely the boss in the relationship and is not going to let go of her man so easily.
