#SnowdropIsComing Trends Amid 'Snowdrop' Controversy
To recall, this is not the first time that K-drama "Snowdrop" trends on social media.
In March, #SnowdropIsComing reached the top spot in Twitter's trending topic as millions of Blinks showed their support for Jisoo's new drama.
It came after the upcoming JTBC series was caught up in a controversy due to the allegation accusing the drama of historical distortion and glamorizing North Korean spies.
To recall, netizens began criticizing the show after an unfinished synopsis circulated online.
With this, others claimed that the lead character, portrayed by the "D.P" actor, is a spy who has infiltrated the activist movement.
At the time, JTBC immediately released an official statement explaining its stance regarding the drama.
In a lengthy statement, the broadcast network denied the speculation about historical distortion, saying that it is a "melodrama about the young men and women who were victims of that situation."
Moreover, JTBC claps back at the criticism, pointing out that Jung Hae In and BLACKPINK Jisoo's drama does not "disparage the pro-democracy movement or glamorizes being a spy or working for the NSP.
