Backstreet Rookie (편의점 샛별이) is a 2020 South Korean television series starring Ji Chang-wook (지창욱) and Kim Yoo-jung (김유정). It is based on the 2016–2017 webtoon Convenience Store Saet-byul written by Hwalhwasan and illustrated by Geumsagong.
Genres: Romantic comedy, Slice of life
Now, the fourth episode is out and the fifth and sixth episodes are airing this week. It’s a really fun drama to laugh. I think it’s a video that can make everyone laugh during the self-price period at home.
I have seen Kim Yoo-jung since I was young because I lived in Korea. She grew up really pretty now. So Attractive!
This is a free summary video. It is the story of a convenience store owner and part-timer. That’s funny! I thought you might want to watch more videos, so I prepared the next video.
I recommend it when you have about an hour left in busy daily life and you have nothing to do.
The Korean War was a war between North Korea and South Korea. The war began on 25 June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea.
At the end of World War II, the Soviet Union and the United States liberated Korea from imperial Japanese colonial control on 15 August 1945. But peace did not last five years, and countless people killed each other.
It is incomprehensible to think that both South and North Koreans suffered a great deal from Japanese colonialism. However, it is understandable to see that strong countries around the world have been playing politics over the Korean Peninsula.
Whose advantage is this? The people only die every time. What does it mean to them? A vain ideology? Who can repay the life?
Dates: Jun 25, 1950 – Jul 27, 1953
Total civilians killed: 2–3 million
South Korea: 990,968 killed/wounded
North Korea: 1,550,000 killed/wounded
Also, there were not a few cases of torture, atrocities, massacres and sexual assaults common in wars. There are many movies and books. Was there any happiness in it?
Dr. Victor Frankl says that even in that situation, one finds meaning in life. But war is all a tragedy. It’s just pain. Countless Korean War veterans testify. Who can compensate for the tragedy of war?
Mr. Man Hee Lee, a Korean War veteran, said the bullets and shells rained down, and they don’t know if their colleague was dead or alive. He couldn’t take off bloody military uniform. It was a tragedy of fratricidal conflict.
Why do we repeat tragedy? Someone might be trying to get a benefit. Is it a virtue that I live better than others? I won’t raise my child like this. I want to raise a child who can be ashamed of having a lot.
In Wikipedia, World Refugee Day, international observance observed June 20 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the situation of refugees throughout the world. This is today!
From my point of view, the activities against refugees seem to be the most noticeable among the activities of the United Nations. This is just my idea.
My dream is actually to work for an international organization like the United Nations. I want to build a career that can help more people, and do something really cool. I think it’s really wonderful for people to get closer to peace. I wish there was something I did during the process. 🙂
2020 Theme: Every Action Counts
The COVID-19 pandemic and the recent anti-racism protests have shown us how desperately we need to fight for a more inclusive and equal world: a world where no one is left behind. It has never been clearer that all of us have a role to play in order to bring about change. Everyone can make a difference.
This is at the heart of UNHCR’s World Refugee Day campaign. This year, we aim to remind the world that everyone, including refugees, can contribute to society and Every Action Counts in the effort to create a more just, inclusive, and equal world. (Source: UN page)
The refugee issue is really a global issue. Because 70.8 million people around the world have been forced from home by conflict and persecution at the end of 2018. Among them are nearly 30 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18… If I were one of them, I would have felt terrible remorse for life.
Unless I jump directly into their lives, it seems that I inevitably have to be a hypocrisy. I want to try not to feel ashamed. Still, there is little I can do, but they seem to comfort us all.
Everyone can make a difference
Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, said “UNHCR is no stranger to challenges. For over 70 years we have been on the frontlines of countless emergencies.
Yet this global pandemic is of an entirely new magnitude. Our priority has been and will be, to stay and deliver for the refugees, internally displaced and stateless people we are mandated to protect. But we can’t do it alone.
Whoever you are. No matter where you come from. Every one of us can make a difference. Every action truly counts.“
This campaign seems to be a great project to urge everyone to join. HWPL, a peace organization that shouted, “Let’s all be one, We Are One” also came to mind. After all, what I felt was that peace was feasible when we all joined in and accomplished things, and otherwise it was not possible. 🙁
Rain, a very famous singer in Korea in the early 2000s, released a song called “GANG” in 2017. However, the song was ruined by public criticism.
The reason was that although his dance was very good, the lyrics were so cheesy and straightforward. And the times were changing rapidly, and in Korea, idols came up. He is now the head of the agency, but at that time he was a losing star.
But in 2020, something crazy happened. The number of views in his GANG music video began to explode. A high school girl parodied it and suddenly caught the eye, and people began to come over and over again, shouting out “One GANG a day.”
The comment box in the music video is a big festival of humor. There were so many witty and funny comments, and people gathered more explosively. The number of views, which was initially 5 million, is now surpassing 15 million in a short period of time.
The period of self-isolation increased during the Corona, so people watched more, and parody videos exploded. It’s a lot.
Nevertheless, there has been no response from the singer himself for a long time. However, he appeared with famous MC Yoo Jae-seok in May 2020, accelerating the trend even more. Accepting criticism and responding leisurely with humor have attracted a great deal of people. There are a lot of responses that say, “He’s a big man.”
Then, his juniors even made the official parody music video. Even the RAIN appears here. I personally like to hear this song. And he’s taking this opportunity to appear on so many TV shows and YouTube. There is no one in Korea who doesn’t know RAIN & GANG these days. I hope this information is helpful.
I brought a video of songs that will make me feel better today.
This time, on a Korean music competition program called Voice Korea, I’m going to introduce a woman who has captured the hearts of judges at once with an incredibly attractive voice and a feeling of intoxication with music.
Her name is “Kim Yeji.” She majored in vocal at a university famous in Korea. They sing songs such as K-pop or pop songs, not opera or vocal music. Look at her expression. It’s like a drunk. She must be drunk with music.
So I looked up other videos, and I was even more surprised.
BLACKPINK – Whistle
The climax is amazing. She also sang pop songs such as “When we were young” and “Mamma knows best.” I like Jessica’s “Mamma knows best” best.
I found her YouTube channel.
I think she’s already a great artist. I hope her song will be known to many people around the world. I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it.
Do you have your own way of overcoming powerlessness?
I feel like I’m talking to a friend I like or looking for anything that can make me laugh. I recommend videos that I watch when I want to see cute things these days. The name of this channel is “MochaMilk.”

Samoyed is so cute….
These are popular, but they’re a bit old, so I’ll also recommend you a new video!
J.Fla is a South Korean singer, music artist, songwriter, and YouTuber.
YouTube sensation J. Fla, famous for her covers of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” and Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito,” has become the first independent Korean YouTuber to attract 10 million subscribers. (Now 15 million)
“Shape of you” has more than 250 million views. And “Despacito” has more than 160 million views. Do you want to see famous things?
So that’s it for the two songs. You were surprised by her voice, right? When I want to feel better, I listen to J.Fla’s songs.
I’m going to recommend three of the songs I’ve heard recently.
Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna ( cover by J.Fla )
She’s always smiling. Someone asked if it’s always hard to laugh, and she answered that it’s harder not to laugh.
I think it’s because she prepared for a children’s song contest for 7 years. But there was a program when she cried that she sometimes felt too lonely.
Even though it’s been a while since her debut, she still looks passionate and happy like a rookie. It makes me feel really good.
She is so cuteeeee. 🙂
She’s so charming when she dances that I think I’ve seen her about ten times. The first time she shook her hair (1:06-1:07) in the dance seems to be the most exciting.
Do you want to see how she was before her debut?
There is a funny comment, so I will translate it. “She’s like an elder sister in business administration at the student council, and an older sister who got a perfect score on TOEIC during activities.” She looks so pure.
