The script reading video of “Snowdrop” has been released.
JTBC’s Saturday-Sunday drama “Snowdrop” (written by Yoo Hyun-mi/directed by Jo Hyun-tak) is scheduled to premiere on Dec 18th. Set in 1987 Seoul, this drama tells the story of a desperate love that goes against the times between Suho (Jung Hae-in), a prestigious university student who suddenly jumps into a women university’s dormitory while being wounded, and Youngro (Jisoo), who hides and takes care of him amidst the surveillance and extreme situation.
In the script reading video released on Nov 29th, the production team and the cast gathered together and showcased a fantastic chemistry in a friendly atmosphere. Director Jo Hyun-tak led the atmosphere comfortably by saying, “I will become a director who you can talk to comfortably.” Writer Yoo Hyun-mi expressed her determination, “It’s been 12 years since I held this material in my heart.

Jung Hae-in shared his thoughts about Suho, “He’s a character that gets caught up in a whirlpool as the plot unfolds. The director, writer and seniors helped me relax a lot, so I read the script comfortably and joyfully.”
Jisoo, who plays the role of Eun Young-ro, a lively and cute freshman at Hosu Women’s University, showed a high synchronization with her calm character thanks to her stable acting skills. Jisoo said, “I play Youngro, a character who gets involved in an accident with Suho. Please look forward to what will happen to the two. This was my first script reading, but I was encouraged a lot by other people’s comfort and support.”
