Snowdrop has been released on Disney Plus in 5 different Asian countries. Due to the controversy over its political content, the average ranking of the show has seen a sharp drop to No. 5.8 as of January 1st. However, the drama is now seemingly bouncing back from its tough start.
Set in the backdrop of Seoul in June of 1987, Snowdrop tells a love story between a female college student and a North Korean spy. The series sparked controversy after the synopsis was released. It has been criticized for allegedly distorting history as it drew the male lead character as a North Korean spy disguised as a student activist who fought for democracy.
Additionally, viewers accused the drama of portraying the Agency for National Security Planning in a positive light, as it depicted the agents as good-hearted officials.
