The show was announced to have Jisoo of Blackpink on board as early as August, 2020 but soon after the schedule for the show began, filming had to be halted due to Covid-19 cases among staff members. The show was also mired by some controversy in terms of its script having historical inaccuracies that led to some backlash among Korean fans. Since 'Snowdrop' is based on a historical event related to the Korean freedom struggle, fans had been hoping this show does not turn out like other shows involved in controversies and prayed for Jisoo’s drama to see the light of day. Well, it seems like that day is coming soon as the show is about to drop very soon. While we do not know if Jisoo's character will make it to the end of the show, what we do know is when it drops and all other information you need to know ahead of its release.
