‘Backstreet Rookie’ is a South Korean rom-com flair that stars Ji Chang Wook and Kim Yoo Jung. Destiny is so fond of meeting people at certain times and brought to meet them back to twist their fates. The main characters persevere in life to achieve and find their life long goals, dreams, and love.


Choi Dae Hyun (Ji Chang Wook) and Jung Saet Byul (Kim Yoo Jung) were young and were strangers from one another. Their fates intertwine as they meet at a residential back alley as Choi Dae Hyun passes by with a broken heart, with him getting dumped by a girl. On the aisle, he met three young high school girls who looked like troublemakers, and one of them is Jung Saet Byul. Jung Saet Byul found him very cute and asked him to buy a pack of cigarettes, but instead, what they got in return were candy and boring life lessons. Three years have passed, and both are now living as adults.

Jung Saet Byul, now 22 years old, is not your ordinary girl from the hood. She has a go-getter and comes with an attitude that is frequently misunderstood by many. But she also has a fun and loving side that all girls can relate to. She loves her family, friends, and has a retro fashion sense and a not so ordinary skill to women, and she has impressive fighting skills. She’s also a catch to the boys and had them all lined up, but there is only one guy that caught her eye, and that is Choi Dae Hyun.

Choi Dae Hyun manages its family-owned convenience store that is not earning much. So he placed a sign looking for a night shift part-timer for his store. With this twist of fates, Saet Byul applied for the job at the store and found themselves meeting again. He became fascinated and had imprinted on the unforgettable girl she met three years ago.

From here on, their love story unfolds with pain, love, comedy struck scenes that bring about love and life lessons. With this, they aspire to become adults looking forward and dreaming of the future.
