Kim Min Kyu Transforms Into Kim Yoo Jung’s Good-Looking Friend For “Backstreet Rookie” Cameo
Kim Min Kyu will be making a special appearance in the upcoming episode of “Backstreet Rookie”!
“Backstreet Rookie” is based on a popular webtoon and tells the unpredictable love story between handsome convenience store owner Choi Dae Hyun (played by Ji Chang Wook) and his chaotic part-time employee Jung Saet Byul (played by Kim Yoo Jung).
Kim Min Kyu will transform into Kang Ji Wook, Jung Saet Byul’s handsome friend from elementary school. Kang Ji Wook became a movie star after capturing a robber who entered a convenience store. His appearance will inject a strange tension between Jung Saet Byul and Choi Dae Hyun.
The newly released photos show Jung Saet Byul and Kang Ji Wook meeting in front of a convenience store. Jung Saet Byul is drinking with her friends after something upsetting happens when Kang Ji Wook suddenly approaches her and greets her with an astonished smile. Her friends notice that he is the famous celebrity and start to make a fuss about meeting him.
In particular, the way Kang Ji Wook straightforwardly approaches Jung Saet Byul suggests that they were close in the past. The speculation is further confirmed as Jung Saet Byul welcomes him with a bright, warm smile. Expectations are rising for their story that will put a special spin on the pending romance between Jung Saet Byul and Choi Dae Hyun.
The production team shared, “Despite the fact that this is just a cameo, Kim Min Kyu’s character will continue to play a major role that will invigorate the drama. Please look forward to his appearance as a famous celebrity and Jung Saet Byul’s warm-hearted friend.”
The next episode of “Backstreet Rookie” will air on June 27 at 10 p.m. KST.
