The saga of jTBC drama Snowdrop will be one for the history books in terms of it being a Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride sort of misconception combined with miscommunication. After 7-episodes worth of storytelling showing that the drama is really a North Korean soldiers hostage taking of a female student dorm combination with politics as a backdrop, there can be no assertion that the drama is attempting to distort the history of democracy student activists of the late 1980’s or whitewashing the military government conduct of that period by showing kind and conflicted security bureau agents. Even K-netizens have accepted that and sentiment has turned back towards this drama which continues to rank high in popularity with Disney+ streaming in other Asian countries especially Japan. Even this isn’t bothering K-netz but it’s too late to reverse the domestic ratings between 2%-3% range. With that said, the drama really isn’t very good script-wise and honestly got more coverage IMO than it deserves in quality due to the controversy. In a normal cycle this would probably be a 5%-8% range jTBC cable drama with okay reviews and buzz from i-netizens due to female lead Jisoo‘s fandom and popularity while in the long run fading into the landscape of mediocre drama land.
