[theqoo] [EXCLUSIVE] THERE WILL BE NO PPL FOR THE DRAMA 'SNOWDROP'

T/N: There was a recent huge controversy surrounding another drama called 'Joseon Exorcist' due to the fact that the drama was distorting Korean history. The same thing is happening with Snow Drop. The story is set in 1987 and Jung Hae-in is playing a protestor (who later turns out to be a spy) while Jisoo is a nursing student. Netizens were saying how their characters' names were actual student protestors who were fighting for democracy at that time. A lot of students were killed and tortured by the authorities. So netizens were mostly furious because the drama was romanticizing that period, because of the male lead's back story, etc.
