Backstreet Rookie is a beautiful love story of two people who work in a supermarket. Created by Son Geun-Joo, the show is based on Hwalhwasan’s webtoon published in 2016. The show debuted in 2020 on SBS. And since then, fans have been hoping for a Backstreet Rookie Season 2. But is it really happening? Let’s find out!
High school tough girl Saet-Byul approaches Dae-Hyun to help her buy cigarettes, shortly after his girlfriend dumps him. However, Byul only gets chocolates and a lecture as compensation. She sarcastically thanks him for his concern, then kisses him unexpectedly. They broke up and haven’t seen each other since.
After three years, Dae-Hyun oversees the family-run convenience store, but he often has to work multiple shifts, leaving him unable to get a rest. Exhaustion makes it difficult for him to keep up with the day-to-day running of the store. The store doesn’t make much money, despite the fact that high school students like to visit and have their pictures taken. Dae-Hyun’s father advises him to hire a part-time employee to help him run the store to keep his business viable. Saet-Byul is the only candidate, so Dae-Hyun reluctantly agrees to take her on a trial.
