Ji Chang Wook Embraces A Tearful Kim Yoo Jung On “Backstreet Rookie”
On the previous episode of the romantic comedy, Choi Dae Hyun (played by Ji Chang Wook) began to realize just how much Jung Saet Byul (Kim Yoo Jung) meant to him. The convenience store owner accidentally described Jung Saet Byul as being “someone special” to him, then corrected himself by saying, “A special employee.” He was also unable to control his jealousy while watching her together with Kang Ji Wook (played by Kim Min Kyu).
With just four episodes left in the drama’s run, viewers are eagerly waiting to see how long it takes Choi Dae Hyun to fully recognize his own feelings for Jung Saet Byul—and whether the couple will finally begin the romance that viewers have been anticipating for weeks.
On July 31, “Backstreet Rookie” released new stills from its upcoming episode that hint at the two characters growing closer than ever. After discovering a distressed Jung Saet Byul alone in the back of the store, Choi Dae Hyun warmly embraces her as she fights back tears at his words of comfort.
To find out what causes Jung Saet Byul to become so upset—and how her relationship with Choi Dae Hyun changes afterwards—tune in to the next episode of “Backstreet Rookie” on July 31 at 10 p.m. KST!
