'Where is Jisoo?': Fans worry as Blackpink star doesn't promote her K-drama 'Snowdrop'
Jisoo is known for her extreme efforts to promote her friends' solo activities, but now the generous idol is raising concerns among fans
Blinks and solo fans who support Jisoo have been time and again asking for more updates but as the days go by and we are inching closer to Jisoo’s debut as a main lead in the JTBC K-drama, ‘Snowdrop’, fans are getting more curious. On November 9, JTBC released the second teaser poster of the Blackpink singer-starrer drama, giving fans something to anticipate. JTBC also revealed the air date for the first episode of the drama.
‘Snowdrop’ will release on December 18 at 10.30 pm KST (8.30 am ET) on JTBC as well as globally on Disney+. The teaser shows Jisoo and Jung Hae-in (the male lead of the show) sitting together as Hae-in looks at a distance but Jisoo looks into his eyes intently. With the caption ‘Don't get caught. Our love and our destiny’ on the poster, fans are gearing up with tissue boxes for an emotional rollercoaster.
Fans theorize Jisoo’s character
'Snowdrop' starring Jisoo of Blackpink is of melodrama, dark humor and romance genre and this has led fans to make up many theories about the story of the show. Fans think that Jisoo plays a blind character or either of the two main characters will die in the drama, making it a real tear-jerker.
‘Snowdrop’ is set in 1987, where Lim Soo Ho (played by Jung Hae-in) and Eun Young Ro (played by Kim Jisoo of Blackpink) are students at a prestigious university in Seoul. Soo Ho, who grew up in Germany, has a gentle charm but gives off an air of secrecy. Eun Young Ro is lively, lovable and cheerful. She falls in love with Soo Ho at first sight at a social gathering. One day, Soo Ho suddenly rushes into a female dormitory where Young Ro is often hiding. Soo Ho is covered in blood and Young Ro hides him and tends to his wounds despite facing dangers under close surveillance.
Where is Jisoo?
Fans of Jisoo know of the idol’s humble and generous nature. She was seen promoting bandmate Lisa’s last release ‘Lalisa’ as she posted reels with the rapper on her social media pages. Jisoo is also one of those idols who put other people first which is why fans of Jisoo are talking on Twitter, asking her to promote her own show as much as she does those of others. Jisoo has not shared the poster of ‘Snowdrop’ and hasn't informed fans about its release date.
Three out of four Blackpink members — Jennie, Lisa and Rose — are in LA and some fans are asking Jisoo to go visit the trio there but fans that know about the release of the ‘Snowdrop’ are saying that she needs to be in South Korea to promote her K-drama which is on the last leg of its release. The fact that fans have to tell other fans about Jisoo’s drama release is proof of the fact that the label is not doing much to promote Jisoo’s solo acting career. Her fans have a right to be mad at YG Entertainment.
Jisoo fans are theorizing
As stated earlier, with just 39 days left for the release of the K-drama, fans of Jisoo have started making up theories about the story of the K-drama. One fan said, "I saw a theory saying jisoo is blind on snowdrop." Another fan said, "And tl also keep talking about snowdrop theory that jisoo or haein might d word, fvck shutup." One more fan says, "Just a theory, the caption in the poster said "Don't get caught"... so, are Eun Young Ro and Im Soo Ho holding each other's hands here and as the caption says, they are hiding it to not get caught?" One fan said, "Hmmm some theory says jisoo is a time travel/ghost/blind."
Fans of Jisoo also asked valid questions as Jisoo did not share the poster on her social media accounts. One fan said, "Where is jisoo why is she not reposting snowdrop's poster?" Other fans asked, "Where is Jisoo?' while one more said, "Jisoo isnt reposting mathilde’s story where is she." One fan said, "These 3 girls are currently in US. How abt our Jisoo? Where is she right now?" Her fans defended her saying, "Jisoo doesn't need to travel to anywhere or to be with other artists to be relevant she's the main event by her own wherever she's is. THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE!" Another fan said, "LOCK JISOO IN SOUTH KOREA SHE'S NOT GOING TO LA UNTIL SNOWDROP PROMO IS OVER."
