Backstreet Rookie - 편의점 샛별이 - 便利店新星

Normally I don't watch Korean drama, but I'll watch drama that has Ji Chang Wook (池昌旭) in it.

However I still think he plays better in K2 or Healer in more of an action role.

Having said that, I really did enjoy watching Empress Qi. That was the last time I would watch a drama that has 50 episodes as I cannot control myself. :D

Backstreet Rookie is the latest Korean drama that has Ji Chang Wook as the main actor. Totaling 16 episodes and all finished airing as of Aug 8th, 2020.

It's a romantic comedy type of story and was converted from comic into live drama. The main actress can really fight and she would help the weak and disadvantaged. She purposely applied to be a 24-hour convenience store clerk to get close to the main actor as she had a crush on him many years ago.

The rest of the story you'll have to find out for yourself. Happy watching!

警視廳搜查一課9係 Keishicho Sosa Ikka

Another 5 years went by without any posts.  Never knew time can fly by so fast.

Keishicho Sosa Ikka - Police major crime unit, 9th division.  This year it's 11th season, I didn't watch from the beginning so don't really know the importance of 9th division.  I do know that this small team works well together an they can split the jobs and resolve the crimes with a lot of accuracy.

I started watching from season 8 and I really liked the dynamics of the team.  Even though they like to poke fun or even taunt each other, they are still very good friends deep down and enjoy each other's company.

I find it funny that the leader position of the group is not the one who assigns investigation tasks to the team members.

At the end of each case, it always seem that the leader found something that will shed light on the case.

The episodes are subbed with Chinese so if you don't know Chinese nor Japanese then you'll need to find other sources to watch.
