ORIGINAL STORY (November 9, 2021): Earlier this summer, South Korean broadcasting company JTBC cast BLACKPINK’s Jisoo in its upcoming K-drama titled Snowdrop. After much anticipation, the show has finally received an official premiere date.
The series is set in 1987 amid South Korea’s June Democratic Struggle, a nationwide pro-democracy movement that left the ruling government no choice but to hold elections. Jisoo portrays Eun Young-ro, a college student who falls in love with Im Su-ho — played by Jung Hae-in from Netflix’s D.P. – at first sight after a protest. Helping him hide from the government in her dorm room at Hosoo Women’s University, Young-ro eventually discovers that Su-ho is not the person he claims to be.
Peep the official poster via JTBC’s Instagram page. Snowdrop will release on December 18 at 10:30 p.m. KST on JTBC. Select countries will be able to watch the K-drama as well on Disney+.
