Earlier in the year, South Korean broadcaster JTBC cast BLACKPINK's Jisoo in the upcoming K-drama, Snowdrop. Naturally, K-pop stans everywhere went bonkers, and after much anticipation, the show has finally revealed its premiere date alongside a short teaser to keep fans on their toes.

The series is set in 1987 amid South Korea’s June Democratic Struggle – a nationwide pro-democracy movement that left the ruling government no choice but to hold elections. Jisoo will play the character of Eun Young-ro, a college student who falls in love with Im Soo-ho, played by Jung Hae-in, at first sight after a protest. Eun Young-ro helps Im Soo-ho to hide from the government in her dorm, until Young-ro comes to the eerie conclusion he is not exactly who he says he is.

Snowdrop will release on December 18 at 10:30 p.m. KST on JTBC. Select countries will be able to watch the K-drama as well on Disney+. Stay tuned for more trailers to emerge over the next month to keep the K-pop fans satiated. We are looking forward to Jisoo's first on-screen debut in the form of a series, and can't wait to see what's in store. See the teaser, below.

 

 

It felt as though it was only a matter of time for the K-pop super star to land a role in Korean cinema, and we are excited to witness her debut in Snowdrop. She has had a monumental year alongside her group-mates, with their recent history of securing collaborations with some of the world's most prestigious fashion houses: Lisa, as the face of CelineRosé, a fashion and beauty muse for Saint Laurent; Jennie, a long-term friend of Chanel and Jisoo joining the force as the global ambassador for Dior.
