    Article: National petition to halt filming for 'Snowdrop' reaches 160,000 signatures despite JTBC clarifying "there is no distortion of history"


    Source: Insight via Instagram

    1. [+265] Why is JTBC saying all this when the public has already said that they don't want to watch it? Fine, go ahead and air it if you want to so bad.

    2. [+207] No more dramas of this type of plot and all the affairs too. We already live in a world full of suspicion and now our TVs are filled with nothing but makjangs too. I know people will say "just stay quiet and don't watch if you don't want to" but it's because of reactions like this that drama producers think they can get away with these things...

    3. [+108] It feels wrong to hate on the drama before it has even begun... It doesn't hurt to watch the drama first and then criticize them if there are parts of it that have distorted history. I think people are going too far after watching only one specific scene..

    4. [+86] People are being too sensitive. How can the drama go on at this point?

    5. [+81] YG had invested in 'Joseon Exorcist' and now they have Black Pink's Jisoo in a drama that praises Xi Jinping ㅋㅋ YG is a company that must go bankrupt no matter what

    6. [+163] Why has Korea gotten so sensitive? No one cared back then. I guess now even historical dramas are off the table.

    7. [+54] People are not blindly hating on this drama. It's a drama about a very painful part of our history, where so many college students were tortured and killed needlessly for democratization. To turn that into a black comedy drama with a scene that so clearly glamorizes something so inaccurately, of course we're going to be against it as a drama. To make things worse, the female lead's name is taken after an actual person (which they deny, but Young Cho is not a common name).

    8. [+20] All you idol lovers can watch this. People were so mad over 'Joseon Exorcist' but look at the hypocrites going "stop being so sensitive" for this drama ㅋㅋ

    9. [+5] Seems like the public should be the ones writing and producing dramas at this rate

    Its nice to see diff opinions, the petition now at 169k but i feel like JTBC will air the drama. I can’t imagine the number of people tuning in for the first ep it will be epic!! :pepe-tea:

  • There's really not a huge backlash in Korea about this like ifans think.

    It never trends on Naver like the other drama did.


    The clarifications by JTBC seemed to work as evidenced by the low upvotes for these comments.

    There's just a few loud people online at this point.

  • Oh gosh, I just feel bad. I don't want Snowdrop to end up not broadcasting. On the other hand, I have no say as an iFan who has no knowledge regarding SK's history. Don't know what to feel.

    This is what i'm thinking as well. I hope it's really the case tho cause i'm excited to have a dark themed drama.

  • knetz really need to wait until the show premieres, they don't really know what exactly they are cancelling.

    160k signatures is not "not much of a backlash". maybe it's not that big but it's not nothing

  • 160k signatures is not "not much of a backlash". maybe it's not that big but it's not nothing


    You should see the amount of signatures that some ridiculous petitions get to the Blue House.

    In a country of 52 million, 160k is nothing.


    Besides the biggest gauge is what I mentioned before...tons of articles have been written about this but they never trend in the top 25 on Naver, not even the 5 minute chart.

    That tells me more Koreans don't really care one way or the other. Heck, the Sujin thing is still trending daily more than this.


    Regardless of a few loud knetz, JTBC's clarifications worked.

    They got rid of trending terms and words.


    The article trending rankings are still there...


    Naver Trending


    And Snowdrop hasn't trended even once.

    I look at it several times daily.
