Previously in March, netizens were strongly keen on canceling JTBC's upcoming drama entitled "Snowdrop" which stars BLACKPINK's Jisoo and Jung Hae In. The reason for this request? The Democratic Movement that has transpired during the revolution is a highly sensitive issue for South Koreans. 

According to the statement of the fan union that requests for the cancellation of JTBC's "Snowdrop," the plot of the drama reminds a "painful part of history whereby many student activists were accused as spies and received unfair torture and died." 

Moreover, they claim the set-up of the male lead as a North Korean spy disguised as a student can show romanticization to spies. Due to these reasons, and many more, a huge following of netizens went on to demand JTBC to cancel "Snowdrop" and give an explanation. 

But in May, the final verdict of whether or not "Snowdrop" would be canceled was released and the verdict from the Blue House gives "Snowdrop" the go sign to continue production and proceed as planned. 

But although this is the case, JTBC's "Snowdrop" will be closely monitored by the regulation committee, and should there be any form of historical distortion, it will be dealt with accordingly.

Ahead of this, JTBC has released a teaser for "Snowdrop" and fans were now able to have their first glance at BLACKPINK Jisoo's highly-awaited debut in acting. In the short teaser, it was shown that BLACKPINK's Jisoo and Jung Hae In have energetic chemistry.

JTBC's short trailer for "Snowdrop" has fans extremely excited even more so with "SNOWDROP COMING SOON" going on to trending at number 2 on Twitter's worldwide trends, as of writing this article.

"Snowdrop" will be BLACKPINK Jisoo's acting debut as the lead and BLINKs alongside her personal fans and netizens are extremely excited to see what she has to offer alongside Jung Hae In.
