After nine months of filming, this week jTBC completed production on period drama Snowdrop starring Jung Hae In, Jisoo of Blackpink, and Kim Hye Yoon. The timing also coincided with the Blue House finally responding to the citizen’s petition lodged in March 2021 to have Snowdrop cancelled due to distortion of history and whitewashing the military dictatorship government of the early 1980’s when the drama is set. The Blue House won’t take any action as it has communicated with jTBC which stands firm that the drama story does NOT distort or whitewash that history and netizens jumped the gun when key phrases were leaked early on that the story deals with the democracy movement, military government, North Korean spy, etc. jTBC insists that the story once it is aired deals with criticizing the strong arm government and mocking their claims that the student democracy movement was propelled by North Korean spies rather than by true grassroots uprising of South Korean students. The drama is reportedly scheduled for a December 2021 premiere so let’s wait and see.
Finally! This has been in the works since June last year! Whatever happens congratulations to cast and crew for finally having a finished product! Now on to the broadcast!
the drama isn’t aired yet, can we just wait for episode 1 to criticize it whether it should be cancelled or not, I just read another article and Koreans still have hatred to the drama.
Nine months of filming? Quite the labour of love.
Oh man,without petition this drama will be flop hard.Just don’t watch it btw.
i really can’t wait. it seems it will be good.
Well… sh*t will hit the fan should the drama turn out to be distorting history after JTBCs re-assurance. So fingers crossed!
I’m glad we get to see the drama.
Is this Fri-Sat or Wed-Thus? And what happened to JTBC Mon-Tue slot? Lydia please share!
i don’t like jung hae in, but i may check this out for jisoo
I thought the petition was ridiculous. People haven’t even watched it. That said, I do have concerns about what jTBC itself released to quiet people. There was some hmmm there. But I’ll wait and see. Hopefully it’s good.
