Jung Hae-in, Jisoo, Yoo In-na, Jang Seung-jo, Yoon Se-ah, Kim Hye-yoon, and Jung Yoo-jin star in Snowdrop. It aired on JTBC every Saturday and Sunday at 22:30 from December 18, 2021 to January 30, 2022 for 16 episodes (KST). In some areas, it is also available on Disney+.
With the June 1987 Democracy Movement, a mass protest movement, and the December 1987 democratic elections, which resulted in the end of the authoritarian Fifth Republic of Korea and the establishment of the democratic Sixth Republic of Korea, 1987 was a watershed year in South Korean history. Stroyline Snowdrop takes place during this pivotal year in South Korean history.
The dates for the 1987 Snowdrop Festival have yet to be announced. Eun Yeong-ro (Jisoo) discovers Lim Soo-ho (Jung Hae-in) as a bloodied graduate student in her women’s university dorm room and hides him from the government. Soo-ho, on the other hand, proves to be a con artist. Despite the chaos that surrounds them, a romance blossoms between the two as their storey unfolds.
Kim Hye-yoon, who rose to fame after appearing in Sky Castle, was reported to be in talks to star in the series on June 18, and her agency confirmed that she was reviewing the offer. On August 18, a report claimed Jisoo had been cast as the series’ lead actress. Later that day, Jisoo’s management company, YG Entertainment, confirmed the news. Kim Hye-yoon was cast as a co-star in the film on August 24. Meanwhile, Jung Hae-in was said to have received an offer but was still deliberating on it. Jang Seung-jo joined the cast on August 26, followed by Jung Yoo-jin and Yoon Se-ah on September 17 and 18, respectively. JTBC officially announced the cast and character descriptions on October 5, 2020. Yoo In-na joined the cast as a regular on December 28th.
Kang Cheong-ya, played by Yoo In-na, is a charismatic and accomplished surgeon at a university hospital (34). Kim Eun-hye is her given name.
Team One is led by ANSP’s anti-communist investigator Lee Gang-mu (Jang Seung-jo, 36), who is looking to arrest Soo-ho for the death of one of his colleagues.
Is Snowdrop A True Story?
JTBC’s newest K-drama During a turbulent period, Snowdrop tells the storey of a love storey between a North Korean spy and a South Korean college student.
More than 300,000 people signed a petition to the Blue House to stop the broadcast of the film, which is set during the Korean democracy movement.
Snowdrop’s public statements claiming that it has no intention of undermining democracy or glorifying the dictatorship or North Korean spies have failed to quell public outrage.
Is there a problem with everyone these days? Many people believe Snowdrop skewed history. What exactly is it?
What was the world like in 1987?
JTBC claims that the plot is completely fictitious and unrelated to reality in the spring of 1987, but many Koreans believe it has something to do with their country’s ongoing democracy movement. 1987 was a watershed moment in Korean history.
Bak Jong-cheol was arrested in January 1987 at Seoul National University’s Department of Linguistics as part of a demonstration in support of the Gwangju Uprising. As a result of his defiance, the authorities subjected him to brutal interrogation and torture. He died as a result of asphyxia caused by waterboarding.
The news outraged people across the country, who demanded a return to democracy.
Everyone’s attention was on South Korea at the time because the 1988 Seoul Olympics were just around the corner.
He then delivered the June 29 Declaration (6.29), a speech in which he advocated for open presidential elections, amnesty for political prisoners, press freedom, and the strengthening of human rights.
“Agency for National Security Planning” was an early acronym for this agency (ANSP). The National Intelligence Agency, formerly the Central Intelligence Agency, has taken over leadership from the CIA today.
The NSA is viewed as a relic of the dictatorship’s era, a stooge, by South Koreans. Although the agency’s stated mission was to maintain security and assist the government in gathering intelligence on North Korean threats, when the people began to pursue democracy, the agency began frequently arresting activists without a warrant or proof, labelling them as North Korean spies, torturing and executing them.
Bak Jong-cheol was the one who had to deal with the NSA spying on him.
It’s worth noting that, while the NSA isn’t heavily featured in Snowdrop, the film portrays it in a favourable light, which is far from the truth.
