'Snowdrop' ending: Does Suho die? Actor Jung Haein trends as fans ask for explanation
Starring Blackpink's Jisoo and Jung Hae-in, the tragic K-drama has left fans with several unanswered questions
The K-drama ‘Snowdrop’ has finally come to an end. Starring Jung Hae-in and Blackpink’s Jisoo in her first lead role, the melodrama caused a huge controversy for allegedly whitewashing the terror of the NSA during the country’s democratic uprising in the 80s. After the Central government and the court gave their approval for the drama’s broadcast, the general public turned into invested viewers. And they have a lot of questions about the finale of ‘Snowdrop’.
The last three episodes were aired over the weekend with ‘Snowdrop’ ending on January 30. The K-drama follows the election scheme between South Korea and North Korea, Jisoo’s Young-ro and Hae-in’s Su-ho’s romance, and a hostage situation as Su-ho’s team of North Korean spies unwillingly capturing Young-ro’s hostel. As the North Korean spies and the students reconcile in the end, they try to escape the hostel alive. However, scenes like Su-ho’s fatal injury and Young-ro’s fate have left several unanswered questions for fans.
‘Snowdrop’ adds plot twists over plot twists and several revelations in its last three episodes. Fans trended Jung Hae-in on Twitter as they were shocked and wondered about his character’s ending. We first find out that Su-ho's biological mother who abandoned him is the same North Korean minister Choi Su-ryeon who orders his death. We also find out how Miss Pi is connected to Bun-ok.
A South Korean professor defects to the North and his student happens to be Miss Pi’s fiance. He, however, two times as he is also the boyfriend of Bun-ok’s sister. Miss Pi is tortured by the NSA about her fiance’s whereabouts who then kill Bun-ok’s sister for colluding with an alleged spy. Fans also wondered about Young-ro’s roommates, the girls from Room 207. They escape with Ha-na and the rest of the student hostages in a bus so that they aren’t killed by the NSA.
However, Young-ro is left behind as she tries to help cook Oh who accidentally sets off a bomb. Su-ho comes in to save her from the NSA officers and is shot multiple times. As the last bet to help Young-ro escape, he tells Nam Tae-il, the NSA officer the location of the money that South Korea needs to send the North to continue their election scheme. He, however, shares that the account’s password is only known to him and Young-ro. They hide in the attic where Young-ro had hidden him at the beginning of 'Snowdrop'. The plan backfires as Tae-il anyway orders Su-ho to be shot. He is fatally injured as he protects Young-ro with his back.
Su-ho lies fatally injured while Young-ro cries over him. He gives her the tape he recorded in response to her confession in which he also shares that he was always in love with her. Nam Tae-il takes away a crying Young-ro as Su-ho watches. Jung Hae-in’s nuanced acting had fans wondering if his character was dead. He does indeed die as a second before the scene fades to black his breathing hitches and then stops.
Those who were wondering how Young-ro was roaming free a year later after the incident concluded that the NSA left her alone as they think she has the password to the account in which 300 million is stashed. However, that is not true because Doctor Kang escaped with the money and it was a gamble that Su-ho took to save Young-ro. The drama ends as Young-ro listens to Su-ho’s confession in the diner they first met and imagines an alternate and happy life with him.
Fans trended Jung Hae-in as they made tweets like, “I have watched alot of d-scenes, but this d-scene will be the most depressing one, because of how detailed and good their actings were.” Another shared, “Even in bts i still cry watching this scene. Jisoo and Haein really did a great job ;( my heart still hurts.” One viewer commented, “This is me trying to feel better after that heartbreaking ending that is snowdrop.” Another posted, “The big question is, what's with the Now and Forever post about? @ActorHaein explain yourself. Who and what are you referring to when you posted this? Argh! My heart still hurts and feels heavy from the ending.” One added, “Scarlet heart has the most heartbreaking drama for me for 5 years then snowdrop comes…”
