The series Snowdrop stars Jung Hae In, Jisoo, Yoo In Na, Jang Seung Jo, Yoon Se Ah, Kim Hye Yoon, and Jung Yoo Jin. The events of Snowdrop take place in 1987, a pivotal year in South Korean history that saw both the democratic elections that followed in December 1987, which led to the dissolution of the authoritarian Fifth Republic of Korea and the establishment of the democratic Sixth Republic of Korea, as well as the June 1987 Democracy Movement, a significant protest movement intended to put pressure on the dictatorship in South Korea to hold free elections.
In Snowdrop, the action happens between November and December 1987. Eun Young Ro (Jisoo), a female college student, finds Lim Soo Ho (Jung Hae-in), a doctoral student, covered in blood, and hides him from the police in her dorm room. Soo-ho is not, in fact, who he seems to be, it turns out. While political instability plays out in the backdrop, the two’s tale develops, and they fall in love.
