It’s an extra week wait for the arrival of next SBS Fri-Sat drama Backstreet Rookie, dropping now on June 19th. That’s ok, get things buttoned down and more time can be used to prep better. The drama released the official posters today and also a new preview that’s in line with the earlier ones, the tone is comedic and the setting is that 24-hour convenience store. I didn’t realize working around the clock is also a recipe for love, lol. Ji Chang Wook and Kim Yoo Jung are definitely going to have to debut instant chemistry to make this come alive because I don’t have any sense of the overarching story other than she’s sassy and he’s dorky and they work together at a convenience store. I find the posters pretty low budget but the leads visuals make up for it and also there’s a sense of camp that I appreciate. Sometimes you know there is noting substantive there so play up having a good time.
