Blue House Petition Reaches More Than 200k Signatures After BLACKPINK Jisoo’s ‘Snowdrop’ Premieres!
Is JTBC's "Snowdrop" ultimately going to get canceled or will it stand strong against the wrath of over 200k signatures?
Not long after the premiere of "Snowdrop" on the 18th of December, a petition against the drama that spanned the whole of Korea was made.
The petition called "Petition for Suspension of Drama ****" began online the day after the premiere of "Snowdrop" on the 19th of December at the Blue House National Petition website.
The author of the petition added:
"At the time, the production team said, 'We have no intention of doing so, and there is no setting anywhere in the script for male and female protagonists to participate in or lead the democratization movement.' However, in the current drama where the first episode aired, the heroine mistakenly saved a spy against the pro-democracy movement.
There are clearly victims of activists who were tortured and killed during the democratization movement, and I think creating such a drama clearly undermines the value of the democratization movement,' the author of the petition wrote."
Furthermore, a song that headed the democratization movement was used in a scene making some viewers dislike the drama further. At present, more than 200,000 signatures are already in the Blue House Petition.
Not all viewers are against the drama though as "Snowdrop" has a 8.8/10 viewership rating on IMDb. Furthermore, fans have praised BLACKPINK Jisoo for her skills in acting. The other members of BLACKPINK have also shown their support towards their fellow member.
Only time will tell if JTBC's "Snowdrop" does get canceled as previous petitions have already been brought up but to no results.
