Where can I stream the series online? What date and time will Jisoo’s new Korean drama “Snowdrop” be available around the world for online streaming, and where can fans go to watch it?
The year 2020 is already setting a record for Korean drama devotees, but there’s still a lot of great K-entertainment to discover. Fans have been particularly enthralled by one of the last titles expected in 2021, a romantic comedy series called “Snowdrop.”
In October 2020, it was announced that a new JTBC series is in production with K-pop star and BLACKPINK member Kim Ji-Soo (Jisoo) in the lead. So, what is the plot of this drama, when will it premiere, and where may fans watch Snowdrop outside of South Korea
What is the plot of Snowdrop?
The love story between Im Soo-Ho, a Korean-German graduate student at a prominent institution, and Eun Young-Cho takes place in 1987 South Korea’s Democratic Movement. After being assaulted at a pro-democracy demonstration, Im Soo-Ho barges into a female dorm at Hosoo Woman’s University one day covered in blood.
Eun Young-Cho, a first-year English Literature student at the university, assists in hiding Soo-Ho from the authorities and dressing his wounds. However, Soo-Hee is ignorant of the fact that she and he had previously met on a blind date, where she fell in love with him for the first time.
How To Stream Snowdrop Online?
Snowdrop will premiere on JTBC and be available to stream internationally through the Disney Plus platform in South Korea. This was revealed by Deadline, who provided a comprehensive list of Asia-Pacific acquisitions by Disney, including “Moving,” “Rookies,” and “Tokyo Mobile Emergency Room.” The cost of a subscription to Disney Plus is presently $7.99 per month or $79.99 for the year.
Snowdrop has always been expected to be simulcast on Netflix, with the platform having a good relationship with JTBC on previous installments such as Run On, Sisyphus: The Myth and Law School.
Fans, on the other hand, can anticipate that more international platforms will invest in future K-dramas thanks to Disney Plus streaming Snowdrop – see here for a detailed breakdown of Apple TV’s most recent hit Korean drama, Dr Brain.
