Ever since BLACKPINK debuted in 2016, BLINKS have been clamoring for Jisoo to get into acting. Aside from the fact that she is the designated visual of the group, she also is great at acting as seen in some of their music videos like Lovesick Girls. Back in 2020, it was announced that Jisoo was going to play the lead female role in a K-Drama called Snowdrop. And now, prayers and wishes have finally been answered as Jisoo’s first-ever K-Drama, Snowdrop is set to premiere very soon.
SNOWDROP IS COMING
Earlier this year, JTCB released a video called COMING SOON, which showed their slate of shows for the rest of the year and Snowdrop was included on the list. The scene showed Jisoo and her co-star, Jung Hae In, In dancing in each other’s arms in what looked to be a ballroom. Despite it only being a 10-second clip, Snowdrop went viral on Twitter with fans wanting to see more. We also finally got the first teaser trailer for the upcoming series.

Snowdrop is currently shaping up to be one of the most-anticipated K-Dramas of the year and we can’t wait to watch it. Here are other facts you should know about the show.
SNOWDROP IS SET IN A HISTORICAL AND CULTURALLY IMPORTANT TIME
The series takes place in 1987, and this isn’t just any random year. This is a culturally and historically significant year for the country as this was during South Korea’s Democracy Movement. Thousands of people would hit the streets in mass protests which would eventually lead to the fall of authoritarian rule and establish the present-day democracy we know today.
JISOO AND JUNG HAE IN WILL PLAY UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
Jung Hae In plays Im Soo Ho. He is a graduate student who participates in a pro-democracy protest. Jisoo plays Eun Young Ro, a university student. One day, Im Soo Ho goes into hiding in order to not get arrested by the government and Eun Young Cho decides to help him by hiding him in her all-girls dormitory. There, the two then start to develop feelings for one another. The show comes from Cho Hyun Tak and Yoo Hyun Mi, who wrote and directed Sky Castle, the previously most-watched K-Drama in Korean history. Jang Seung Jo, Yoo In Na, Kim Hye Joon, and Yook Se Ah are also set to star in the K-Drama.
