The lively characters

Despite giving more attention to the framed love story, Backstreet Rookie has introduced endearing characters who added enjoyment to the narrative. Notably, Geum Bi (Seo Ye Hwa) and Eun Jo (Yoon Soo) make up for quirky sisterhood moments that easily generated laughter from audience.

Third party involvement are considered K-Drama essentials, and we had two-and-a-half in the story. Seung Joon (Do Sang Woo) and Ji Wook (Kim Min Gyu) unfortunately failed on their one-sided romance. Yeon Joo (Han Sun Hwa) also lost her claim to the hero of the story, whose objection of affection was her initially.

Providing additional sprinkles of zest is Dal Sik and Geum Bi’s side love story. Meanwhile, Eun Byul carved a perfect picture of a youth torn between being grateful and irresponsible sister who learns from her mistake.

Both appear to not going on her way. The only bright things in her life are her trusted sister friends and celebrity male friend.

But fate favors the diligent, her affection towards the convenience store manager she likes saw a ray of hope.

Choi Dae Hyun (Ji Chang Wook), Saet Byul’s store manager has been dating a woman without the knowledge of her affluent family. Often times, his girlfriend Yeon Joo sets the direction of their relationship. His big love though finally breaks because the wealth disparity of their families came into picture.
