A little about Snowdrop

This drama is set in the 1987 Democracy Movement, where lead roles are students starring Jung Hae In and Kim Jisoo. They both are students of a prestigious university in Korea.

Jisoo’s character name in this drama is demanded to be changed because it is similar to the name of a prominent political figure Chun Young Chu. Her new name is not announced yet but her current name is Young Cho. Chun Young Chu was an activist in the Korean democracy student protest movement.

JTBC confirmed that even though the character has nothing to do with the activist, they will change the name since now it is brought in issues.

They are concerned about Korean History being portrayed with fabrication.
