JTBC drama facing pre-release backlash for "Snowdrop"

JTBC's upcoming TV series "Snowdrop" has also faced a backlash from audiences for allegedly distorting history, following a similar controversy over SBS' "Joseon Exorcist."

Some reacted furiously about the forthcoming drama after its synopsis was leaked online. According to leaked information, the drama, set in Korea gripped by pro-democracy protests in the 1980s, tells the story of love between a North Korean agent and a female South Korean college student.

Their discontent comes from lead characters. Suho, played by Jung Hae-in, is a pro-democracy student activist who turns out to be a North Korean agent who infiltrates South Korea to instigate chaos and political instability, during which he falls in love with the other lead role Young-cho (BLACKPINK's Jisoo). People reacted poorly to the way the male character is described and claim the plot is an apologism for the South Korean spy agency, which had tortured and even killed student activists at the time.
