Published Categorized as K-Dramas and K-Movies

“Backstreet Rookie” has aired its first episode today but its already receiving backlash!

The new SBS drama taking over “The King: Eternal Monarch” time slot aired its first episode a couple of hours ago. However, discussions on the qoo aren’t going well.

After netizens watched the first episode, they noticed that Kim Yoo Jung’s character wore very short outfits often paired with high heels; her character wore a dress to the interview for the job at the convenience store.

Besides that, the shooting angles of the drama also gained attention. One scene of the main lead younger sister was shot in a way that netizens believe was problematic with the camera focusing on their bottom half and their skirts.

Many netizens are pointing out how weird it is for the female lead to wear such outfits to work, many are also questioning why the webtoon was made into a drama in the first place.

The webtoon which “Backstreet Rookie” is based is already considered problematic before it was adapted into a drama, many fans had conflicting feelings about the drama being made.

Hi all, my name is Hilda and I am a huge kdrama fan, I am responsible for covering news in relation to Kdramas on jazminemedia.com~ My all time fav kdramas are: My Mister, Hotel Del Luna and Kill Me, Heal Me.


  1. Some of the angles are weird. The others angles only seem weird because the real issue here is the Kim Yoo Jung will always be seen as the Nation’s Younger Sister.

    As for her wearing heals, she’s trying to look sexy for the dude.

  2. Tbh, I have started watching it, then stopped about five minutes into the first episode. I might continue watching it later on…

  3. Not everyone has problem with the drama. I don’t have any problems with the drama, the outfit are OK and the scenes are OK. They should keep there problems to themselves.
    Thank you

  4. She can’t forever be the nations younger sister right, and I think some ppl forgot her current age, she’s no more a young girl so please stop it, do u wanna see her taking part in the next suicide case ?? So please stop these nonsense…
