Starring A-list actor Jung Hae-In, Yoon Se-ah, Kim Hye-Yoon, Yoo In-Na and worldwide icon, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo, Disney+ Hotstar’s ‘Snowdrop’ has officially come to an end and fans are feeling bittersweet. The suspenseful storyline, together with the cast’s impressive acting, led to the drama receiving much love from fans globally.
Moreover, ‘Snowdrop’ is directed and written by the very talented Director Jo Hyun-tak and writer Yoo Hyun-mi, who have worked together previously for the hit drama ‘SKY Castle’, and this further heightened expectations even before its premier.

Set against the backdrop of a turbulent political era of the country in 1987, ‘Snowdrop’ tells a fictional story of two university students, Eun Yeong-ro (Jisoo) and Lim Soo-ho (Jung Hae-In), caught up in a heart-breaking and desperate Romeo-and-Juliet-like love story. However, unbeknownst to Yeong-ro at the beginning, Lim Soo-ho was a wanted agent in disguise, who could potentially harm her and her loved ones.
We would say that ‘Snowdrop’ has successfully captivated audience worldwide— streaming on Disney+ Hotstar, every episode had been an emotional roller-coaster as we watched the main characters fight for their love with lives at stake.
We believe that the highlight of the drama is the ending of Episode 4, where Lim Soo-ho raised the gun to Yeong-Ro’s head. For me, that particular scene left me at the edge of my seat as it marked the start of all the chaos, heartbreaks and painful betrayals the protagonists had to overcome.
Plot twists after plot twists, the splendid acting of the supporting cast also made us feel how desperate and burnt out the characters were in the hostage situation. Every cast member did a marvellous job carrying their respective roles to build up the storyline and this absolutely left viewers hooked onto the drama.
The main cast, Jung Hae-In and Jisoo, have also been highly praised for their synergy and great chemistry on set and even in the behind-the-scenes footages. ‘Snowdrop’ also marks the BLACKPINK member’s first ever lead in a K-drama series! Jisoo has also been making headlines with her impressive acting talent and hopefully we can expect to see her in more K-dramas in the future!
The final 3 episodes were broadcasted consecutively on the last weekend of January, in consideration to other programmes that were rescheduled due to the Lunar New Year holidays. Like any classic korean drama, we believed that the protagonists would have a happy ending. Unfortunately, ‘Snowdrop’ has proven us wrong about this. The heart-wrenching moments lasted till the final episode and it led to a painfully tragic ending.
Nevertheless, we would say still that ‘Snowdrop’ was indeed a ‘One-Way Ticket’ to the hearts of the global audience! Kudos to Jung Hae-in, Jisoo and all cast for this amazing project of ‘Snowdrop’. Viewers will also ‘always remember’ this piece of work by JTBC and Disney+ Hotstar.
