“Snowdrop” production staff member speak up after criticism!

“Snowdrop” production team saying “We made the project bearing in mind NSA agents were ordinary people too” 

On December 27th, an interview with one among “Snowdrop” production staff members surfaced which had many netizens baffled and reignited the controversy.

According to the interview, a staffer ‘A’ said “Snowdrop is that the project we made bearing in mind NSA agents were ordinary people too. There are some scenes making a satire of the govt. at that point but it isn’t depicted as extremely bad people. within the latter a part of the series, there are scenes associated with the incident in 1998 without a robust negative depiction of NSA.”

‘A’ continued, “I want the history distortion controversy is that the matter of perspective, how you view the 1987’s era. ‘Snowdrop’ depicts NSA with a politically neutral view but if there are many viewers who are unhappy with such viewpoint, the misunderstandings will persist.”

Shortly after the interview went out, many netizens gathered to a well-liked online community to debate the difficulty. Over 1300 netizens shared their thoughts saying comments like “Yes, that’s exactly why this can be problematic”, “I knew they knew what they were doing lol this can be comedy gold”, “This is admired saying Nazies were ordinary people too”, and more.


Before that, many people criticized the movie “Snowdrop”. That led the drama’s producers to show the special episode and it got a pretty bad rating. Episode 3 of JTBC’s ‘Snowdrop’ records a mean viewership rating of 1.9% after its special Friday broadcast

Last week, ‘Snowdrop’ starring Jung Hae In and BLACKPINK’s Jisoo set out with a median viewership rating of three.0% during episode one, followed by a rating of three.9% during episode two. but every week later, ratings for episode three have dropped all the way down to the first range.

Meanwhile, earlier on, JTBC announced its decision to air episodes 3-5 of ‘Snowdrop’ prior to schedule from December 24-26 in an effort to relax the controversy surrounding the drama’s historical background and plot. Numerous netizens are continuing to say that the story of ‘Snowdrop’ mocks and distorts a very important point in South Korea’s history, while JTBC has persistently refuted such claims.

Other dramas currently airing within the same time interval, including MBC’s ‘The Red Sleeve’ and SBS’s ‘Now, We Are Breaking Up’, recorded average viewership ratings of 12.8% and 5.7% for December 24, respectively.
