JTBC’S Snowdrop saw a slight rise in viewership ratings.
According to Nielsen Korea, the 7th episode of Snowdrop scored an average nationwide viewership rating of 3.252 percent. This is higher than the drama’s previous rating of 1.9 percent, but lower than its highest rating of 3.9 percent in the 2nd episode.
In the 7th episode, Kang Chung Ya (Yoo In Na) is brought to the scene of a hostage incident at Hosu Women’s University. There, she confronts Im Soo Ho (Jung Hae In) and the other North Korean spies who were taking the students and faculty as hostages. Kang Chung Ya is a surgeon who is having a secret affair with Nam Tae Il (Park Sung Woong), the Secretary General of ANSP (Agency for National Security Planning). She was initially called to the scene to treat the injured.
Meanwhile, Nam Tae Il secretly asks Kang Chung Ya to terminate the injured spy. While not agreeing on the execution, Kang Chung Ya promises to knock the spy unconscious by injecting him the painkillers with sleeping pills. Then, she hides a gun inside her bag, according to ANSP agent Jang Han Na (Jung Yu Jin)’s advice.
Im Soo Ho was startled to see Kang Chung Ya. He calls Joo Gyeok Chan (Kim Min Jae), another spy, to reveal her identity. Kang Chung Ya was, in fact, a high-rank North Korean spy dispatched for espionage operations.
Viewers are expecting to see if Kang Chung Ya will add to the tension of this already complicated relationship.
