How to Watch Snowdrop in the US


Snowdrop is a Korean romance drama (k-Drama) series that came out in 2021. The most notable actor is Jisoo Kim from the popular K-Pop girl group, Blackpink. Directors adapted the story from the handwritten notes of a man who escaped from a North Korean political prisoner camp in 1987. Of course, that means it is set during the 1987 democracy movement in South Korea. This show is outstanding, and if you are a BLINK (fan of Blackpink), this is a show you won’t want to miss out on. This show is available on Disney Plus, but not in the US. If you want to watch it there, you’ll need to connect to a VPN.

Love among political intrigue

Again, this show is set during the 1987 South Korean Democracy Movement. It was a time in the country when protesters were trying to force the government of South Korea to hold fair elections, leading to the end of authoritarian rule in South Korea and the establishment of democratic governance in the Sixth Republic of Korea. When you consider that these elections only took place 18 months or so before the actions in Tiananmen Square, you can see that this was a watershed moment for the country.

Eun Yung-ro (played by Jisoo Kim) and her troublesome friends live in a school dormitory. She discovers Im Soo-ho (Jung Hae-in) covered in blood. She likes him and agrees to hide him in her dorm room at her women’s college. However, he is not what he appears to be. The pair fall for each other, and their relationship grows against the turmoil.

Let’s take a quick look at the cast of this show.
