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.
