Snowdrop, which has been on the verge of broadcasting several times before the broadcast due to controversy over history distortion such as the beautification of the Ministry of Justice and the democratization movement, confirmed the date of First Broadcasting.
While the broadcasts are still continuing between the broadcaster and the public, the ‘Snowdrop’ is gathering attention to whether it will be able to erase the controversy and wash away the stigma through this broadcast.
JTBC said in its official position on the 5th, “The new drama ‘Snowdrop:snowdrop’ (playplayplay by Yoo Hyun-mi and director Cho Hyun-tak, and hereinafter ‘Snowdrop’) will be broadcast for the first time in December.”
‘Snowdrop’ attracted the expectation of many Drama fans in that it was a work that was once again coincided with JTBC’s representative work ‘SKY Castle’ by Yoo Hyun-mi and director Cho Hyun-tak, but some synopsis was revealed and public opinion was overturned 180 degrees.
‘Snowdrop’ is a story of love that goes against the era of a college student who suddenly jumped into a dormitory of a women’s university in 1987 in Seoul and concealed and treated him even in the midst of a crisis.
One of them posted a message on the bulletin board of the Cheong Wa Dae petition in March, entitled “Snowdrop should be stopped.”
The petitioner said that “Snowdrop” is likely to distort history like SBS ‘Chosun Gummasa’, which ended in two times due to controversy over history distortion. “‘Snowdrop’ is trying to beautify the Ministry of Justice under the pretext of setting up. ”
The petitioner cited the fact that the role of a prestigious college student in charge of Jeong Hae-in is actually a spy in the South, and that the role of ‘Eun Young-cho’, played by the index, reminds me of Chun Young-cho, who actually invested in the democratization movement.
The petition has been open to the public for more than a month, exceeding the 200,000 petitioners who can demand Cheong Wa Dae’s response.
As the controversy grew, JTBC wrote two clarifications: The name of ‘Eun Young-cho’, which may be controversial, will also be revised to ‘Eun Young-ro’.
JTBC first refuted that “Snowdrop” is not a drama that disparages the democratization movement and glorifies the insider and spy. “The drama is a black comedy that satirizes the presidential election in the inter-Korean confrontation in the background of the military regime in the 1980s.
The current controversy is that some of the unfinished synopsis has been leaked online, and the controversial content is different from what Snowdrop contains. “
JTBC said, “‘Snowdrop’ is not a drama that deals with the democratization movement. The motive of the background and major events is not the democratization movement but the 1987 presidential election.
The name of the heroine is not related to Chun Young-cho, but I will revise it. “
As such, JTBC has actively worked on clarification, but the public’s gaze on ‘Snowdrop’ is still cold.
One furniture company has asked the Snowdrop side to withdraw its sponsorship in the cold response of the public.
It is noteworthy whether ‘Snowdrop’ will be able to overturn public opinion again with unmisunderstood stories and structured productions like JTBC’s explanation.
