I’ll say that if upcoming SBS Fri-Sat drama Backstreet Rookie is at least good then it’s already a winner. The expectations are low and this is a low budget drama anyways, at least compared to its time slot predecessor world building fantasy quest The King: Eternal Monarch. BR is a webtoon adaptation, and a crappy original source material if you ask me, but adaptations typically veer far off course and this one could use major revamping and appears to do so. Leads Ji Chang Wook and Kim Yoo Jung give off very positive chemistry, he’s bumbling and older while she’s sassy despite being younger. The supporting cast seems both silly and serious, and whether you even are interested in this drama probably comes out to whether as a viewer you like the leads or generally enjoy the fluffy silliness that comes from a manga/manhwa/webtoon adaptation. I’m in both camps so count me in next Friday.
