It’s only the third week of airing for jTBC Fri-Sat period romance and spy drama Snowdrop but goodness it feels like a lifetime’s worth of controversy and news ink spilled on said controversy. There was even a lawsuit and an injunction ruling all in the span of one week! I haven’t heard anymore complaints from K-netizens domestically this week but we’re only halfway through the week so who knows. It appears that there isn’t much more to be done to try and force jTBC to stop airing, the network won’t budge and complaints/protests/lawsuits have had no effect. It also helps jTBC that while a few sponsors pulled out in the first week there hasn’t been more drop out since. With that said, the viewership of Snowdrop which streams on Disney+ hasn’t been great since it’s premiere but that’s changed this week. Starting on January 3, 2022 the drama went to #1 on Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea, and up to #3 in Japan. If this holds, with the domestic controversy dying out on inertia and the streaming viewership staying high it may end up recouping the cost for the network.
