Jisoo from Blackpink trended on Twitter after the teaser trailer of her first romance drama was recently released.
About the drama: On Oct. 14, JTBC Drama released a 29-second teaser of “Snowdrop,” a new K-drama starring Blackpink’s Jisoo and “Something in the Rain” star Jung Hae-in. 
  • “Snowdrop” is set in 1987 in South Korea. It was a pivotal year in the country’s history in which protestors faced an authoritarian government “to hold democratic elections and later enforce constitutional reforms during the June 29 Declaration.”
  • “Snowdrop” follows the complicated love story of Su-ho (Jung), a graduate student from a prestigious university, and Young-ro (Jisoo), a cheerful English literature student at Hosu Women’s University. Their story becomes entangled with the mass protests during the tumultuous time in the nation’s history after Su-ho gets involved in a violent street protest and Young-ro helps him hide from authorities. 
  • The drama, directed by Jo Hyun-tak and written by Yoo Hyun-mi, is set to air on Dec. 3 on Disney Plus.
  • In the teaser video, Jung can be seen stopping his bicycle under falling snow and later bumping into Jisoo inside what appears to be a shop.
  • “I’m sorry. It’s because of me,” Jung said in the clip’s voiceover. The teaser also ends with Jisoo’s voice-over saying, “I miss you. I wish I could see you just once.”
Online reactions: Fans were fast to react and express their excitement on Twitter after the teaser release. 
  • According to reports, there were nearly 500,000 tweets for #Jisoo on Thursday alone, which were mostly fans expressing excitement over the Blackpink singer’s first romance drama.
  • Many fans are also using the voiceover in “Snowdrop” and applying it to screen captures of other K-dramas or music videos to share on Twitter.
  • One viral tweet is @jjalt5’s post of Blackpink’s song “Lovesick Girls” with the “Snowdrop” voiceover:
