Backstreet Rookie Controversy: 6000+ Complaints Against Ji Chang Wook & Kim Yoo Jung Film

Today marks the release of the third episode of Backstreet Rookie. The criticism against the material that the Ji Chang Wook and Kim Yoo Jung movie’s first episode featured hasn’t yet subsided, either.

Backstreet Rookie’s issues don’t appear to be going away anytime soon. Ji Chang Wook and Kim Yoo Jung are the main characters in the SBS drama, which replaced Lee Min Ho’s The King: Eternal Monarch in the position.

The series, which debuted its first and second episodes last weekend, is already embroiled in a debate. For the uninitiated, the webtoon Convenience Store Saet Byul by Hwalhwasan and Geumsagong served as the inspiration for the K-drama.

There is adult content in the webcomic. The series incorporated a few adult elements, which didn’t sit well with the Korean audience. Pinkvilla earlier this week reported that viewers want the show to be canceled.

More than 6000 complaints have reportedly been filed against the series as of late, according to the Korean news outlet PD Journal. On the channel’s website and with the Korea Communications Standards Commission, complaints have been made about the show’s inappropriate “sexual nature.”

The content will be evaluated, according to a Korea Communications Standards Commission spokesman. “Viewers continue to make official complaints with us against the program,” they declared. The designated team will examine the issues and adjust the information as necessary. Backstreet Rookie and SBS’s creators have not yet responded to the criticism.

When viewers pointed out that the first episode objectified women and that it was wrong for the main character, who portrays a middle school kid, to physically interact with the lead character, who is 30 years old, the controversy first gained attention.

The main characters shared a kiss in the first episode, along with a sex worker and some half-naked ladies.
