Story Of Snowdrop
Snowdrop is a South Korean drama which got released recently on 18th December 2021. It’s cast are Jung Jung Hae In, Kim Ji Soo from Blackpink, Yoo In Na, Jang Seung-Jo, Yoon Se Ah, Kim Hye-Yoon, and Jung Yoo-Jin. It has 16 episodes with a melodramatic, romantic, and thriller touch in the story. The story revolves around a young boy named Im Soo-ho and a young girl Eun Young-Cho and their love story.
Snowdrop takes place in 1987 Seoul, a pivotal year in South Korean history that included the June 1987 Democracy Movement, a mass protest movement aimed at forcing South Korea’s dictatorship to hold fair elections, and the subsequent December 1987 democratic elections, which resulted at the end of the authoritarian Fifth Republic of Korea and the establishment of the democratic Sixth Republic of Korea. Eun Young-Cho and Im Soo-ho, both university students, meet on a group blind date in a coffee shop, where Young-Cho falls in love with him at first sight. Soo-ho, unknown to Young-Cho and everyone else, is a North Korean agent charged with bringing a professor called Han I-stop over to the North.
Six months later, when Soo-ho’s plot is about to be carried out, they are stopped by an ANSP team commanded by Lee Gang-mu. Soo-ho is shot while attempting to flee to the Hosu Women’s University dormitory. Young-Cho and her roommates try to hide Soo-ho from the pursuing ANSP agents and police officers, supposing he is a student protester. With the University’s annual open house approaching, Young-Cho takes advantage of the opportunity to accompany Soo-ho out of the dorm by posing as her male companion for the occasion. Soo-ho resumes his objective after leaving the hostel. Soo-ho, who has held the students and employees of Hosu Women’s University’s dormitory hostage, bargains with the chief of ANSP to escape with his companions, Gyeok-chan and Eung-cheol. As the hostage situation worsens, Young-Cho’s brother Yeong-u is hurt in a North Korean strike at sea and dies in a hospital. During this situation, Soo-ho and Young-Cho become increasingly reliant on one another. Soo-ho consoles Young-Cho, who has lost faith in her father. Meanwhile, kids are unsure whose side they should believe. As Young-Cho’s romance with Soo-ho progresses, her friends find she is the ANSP director’s daughter and cut connections with her, forcing Young-Cho to seek consolation and cry in Soo-ho’s arms.
Later, Soo-ho and Young-Cho say their goodbyes as Soo-ho gives Young-Cho his sister’s jewelry for the second time. He eventually sacrifices himself and dies to protect Young-Cho from the bullets. In the aftermath, the truth is revealed, and Chang-Su, Tae-il, and Gyeong-hui are imprisoned. Young-Cho, who is still in mourning over Soo-ho, listens to his recorded cassette containing his final words, including his declaration of love for her the series concludes with a fictitious scene in which Soo-ho plays the guitar and sings a song for Young-Cho at the coffee shop where they first met.
Is it Worth Watching Snowdrop?
snowdrop is a good drama series. Snowdrop is one of the most awaited series. But unfortunately, a lot of debate about the imaginary story is raised in this story. A student’s love story with a North Korean spy who was considered too sensitive would change history in the 1980s.
