About that last recap (and BIG announcements!)

So I owe everyone who frequents this blog an explanation. You’re all probably wondering why on earth I’m so inconsistent. 

First, I go on hiatus for three years. Next, I start recapping a show consistently and suddenly vanish before the last episode airs. All in all, not a good look.  (I’m sorry!!)

But I have reasons, I promise. Continue reading “About that last recap (and BIG announcements!)”

Daehyun looks awkward until Saetbyul clarifies that she’s not aiming to get to his current status in life but

Daehyun smiles, looking relieved and says she’s waited this long for him so he can definitely wait a little more. And thus begins episode 15!

Backstreet Rookie Ep 14 Recap (and confession time)

Yeonjoo thinks back to Daehyun refusing her help and telling her that atoning for the past won’t change anything now. She says she’d no idea what an amazing man he was when she had him [sounds like your problem lol] so now she’s going to get him back [of course, I wouldn’t expect anything less of someone as selfish]. 

She pulls up outside the convenience store just as Daehyun presents the tulips to Saetbyul. Seeing that she turns away and leaves.

Meanwhile, Saetbyul’s delighted. And thus begins episode 14!

Backstreet Rookie Ep 12 Recap (and the past catches up)

We start off with Jiwook throwing down the gauntlet and informing Daehyun that he’s in love with Saetbyul. The object of said interest interrupts and informs them that shooting’s starting soon so the trio head off to the store where Jiwook’s primped and powdered within an inch of his life.

Backstreet Rookie Ep 10 Recap (and the worst day of Daehyun’s life)

[Hi everyone! Recap was late because I was writing an exam, where almost everything went tragically wrong k-drama style. Please pray that I pass 😦 ]

Yeonjoo callously leaves Daehyun at the restaurant and has Seungjoon drive her. She wipes tears away but smiles when Seungjoon holds her hand [well she sure moved on fast!]. He takes her to a party in her honour and she smiles and drinks the night away. Wow I hate her. 

On the other hand, Daehyun returns to the store where his mother badgers him about Yeonjoo’s birthdate so she can determine if they’re astrologically compatible [uhh, a little too late for that] and he can’t bring himself to tell her the truth so just asks her to leave. He slumps at his desk once Boonhee’s gone, as it hits him that Yeonjoo just walked out of his life.

And thus begins episode 10! [Wow this is almost as sad as how I feel rn 😦 ] Continue reading “Backstreet Rookie Ep 10 Recap (and the worst day of Daehyun’s life)”

We start off with Yeonjoo and Saetbyul glaring daggers at each other. Saetbyul’s brought some rice cakes over and Boonhee insists that they all sit together and eat. Yeonjoo and Daehyun try to excuse themselves for a much-needed conversation but Boonhee’s having none of it. Daehyun and Yeonjoo end up being forced to remain and eat and he throws Saetbyul a frown, upset that she had to come right at that moment. 

And thus begins episode 9! Continue reading “Backstreet Rookie Ep 9 Recap (and here comes the breakup)”

Backstreet Rookie Ep 7 Recap (and wow this got good)

We start of with Saetbyul’s bombshell to Daehyun that she’ll be quitting the store. Daehyun looks lost for words for a second, then grabs Saetbyul’s hand as she turns to leave.

She  says it’s nothing sudden, and she meant to quit but didn’t want him to get the wrong impression. Daehyun asks where she’s going to work now but Saetbyul sweetly tells him that’s none of his concern now. She asks if he can leave and Daehyun refuses, asking if it’s because he got mad at her and promises raise after raise but she shoves him out regardless. A worried Daeyhun wonders what to do. And thus begins episode 7! Continue reading “Backstreet Rookie Ep 7 Recap (and wow this got good)”
