There a lot of smiles and outsized personalities to go around in upcoming SBS Fri-Sat drama Backstreet Rookie, adapted from the webtoon Convenience Store Morning Star. The premiere will likely be pushed back a week now that SBS preempted an episode of its predecessor drama The King: Eternal Monarch so we’ll see the drama in mid-June. Leads Ji Chang Wook and Kim Yoo Jung exude really strong auras here, distinctive character vibes that come across even in stills. She’s confident and he’s your average nice dude, nothing wrong with that. I learned what supporting actor Eum Moon Suk is playing, a webtoon writer with the pen name Foot Volcano who is into reggae culture hence the first impression that the drama is insensitively stereotyping Rastafarian culture. The could do without the fake dreads but I’ll wait and see how the drama handles a South Korean who loves and essays another culture because by itself there is nothing wrong with that.
