South Korean television network JTBC has announced the premiere date for its highly awaited Korean drama Snowdrop. It’s starring BLACKPINK’s Jisoo Yoo In-na, Jang Seung-jo, Kim Hye-yoon, Yoon Se-ah, and Jung Yoo-jin.
In the latest promotional poster released by JTBC, the two leads are seen sitting together in a warmly lit room with a snowdrop flower in between them. There the comer tagline in Korean is “Must not get caught. Both love and fate.”
In addition, the text below the poster, as well as the caption on JTBC’s social media posts, confirms that Snowdrop is going to premiere on December 18 at 10:30pm KST. Disney+ also has revealed that they will also be streaming episodes of Snowdrop.
The story of Snowdrop follows two students, who are played by Jisoo and Jung Hae-in caught up in a whirlwind romance in South Korea. The television series is set in 1987, a pivotal year in the country’s history that saw a nationwide mass movement that forced the ruling government to hold elections.
In the series, Jung will portray a graduate student with a secret past. Jisoo plays a university student who lives in an all-female dormitory. The two cross paths when Jung’s character seeks refuge in a female dormitory after a protest at the Hosoo Women’s University.
However, Snowdrop marks the BLACKPINK singer’s first leading role, following cameos in 2015’s The Producers and 2019’s Arthdal Chronicles.
