With co-star Jisoo of Blackpink, Jung Hae-in explains why he chose the K-drama “Snowdrop.”
Jisoo plays Young-ro, a character who looks for Jung Hae-character in’s after he is hurt during a demonstration.
‘Snowdrop,’ one of the most anticipated K-dramas of the year, is moving closer to its premiere date. The show has gotten a lot of attention for a variety of reasons. Jisoo of Blackpink is playing the lead role for the first time. Despite cameo appearances in dramas such as ‘Arthdal Chronicles Part 2,’ the idol has never played a leading role. Her label, YG Entertainment, chose to sign her on as an actor after she expressed an interest in doing so. Jisoo then chose ‘Snowdrop’ as her first lead project, a romantic melodrama set during the 1980s June uprising in which two people find love in the most unlikely of situations. Jung Hae-in is her co-star in this film.
Jung Hae-in is a well-known K-drama actor who has been in films such as ‘Something in the Rain’ and ‘One Spring Night.’ He was recently seen as the main character in the Netflix black comedy ‘D.P.,’ which explores South Korea’s required military duty. He has returned to the romantic genre, but with a similar character, after portraying a cynical character with a terrible secret. In ‘Snowdrop,’ he portrays Su-ho, a student protester who seeks refuge at a girls’ institution, where Jisoo’s Young-ro treats his injuries after the protest goes wrong.
