    TL/TR

    The drama was targeted for distorting History before it even aired due to snippets of a synopsis that was spread around the internet right after the whole Joseon Exorcist debacle and was just thrown into the same pot. The same people who complained about Joseon Exorcist where the ones who organized the project to ban SD, the reason everything happened so fast. They made a posts right after the first episode, continuing accusing the Drama if distorting History. These one sided claims claims were spread to other SNS sites and the media reported about these one-sided claims without fact checking if the claims are true, there were no efforts made to really investigate if the claims were true and people who didn't watch the Drama started to complain about it and joined a petition to ban the Drama right after the first Episode . This lead to many believing that there was indeed distortion of History that happening. Media companies these days want fast clicks, so instead of a in depth coverage of the situation, just made a quick report about about people complaining about the distorting of history and the blue house petition to get the clicks (cause thats what people were interested in). After the 5th episode cleared some of the misunderstands, their focus has now went to the poor viewer ratings. Controversy remains for the sake of controversy. The media and SNS sites reporting about the incidents without fact checking have caused a lot of damage.

    Also the claimed that the church was used a meeting point between a spy and a member of the democratic party to imply that the democratic party was linked to NK.....

    But there was no meeting, Professor Han visited the cathedral to confess to a priest, not to meet a spy, the spy disguised a priest to then abduct professort Han...

    There are also comments asking the OP what he is normaly thinking, like how can you see a cathedral and a Spy disguised a priest to abduct someone and the first thing you think of Cardenal Kim Soo Hwan who saved many protesters life... ? (rough translation)

    Anyway Court rejects application for injunction to ban screening of 'Snowdrop''...

    On the 29th , Division 21 of the Civil Settlement of the Seoul Western District Court (Chief Judge Park Byung-tae) rejected the application for an injunction against the screening of ' Seolganghwa' made by the civic group Universal Declaration of Citizenship against JTBC . The court decided that even if 'Seolganghwa' was based on a distorted view of history, viewers would not blindly accept it. In response, JTBC responded, "'Solganghwa' is a creative work that shows the personal narratives of those who were used and sacrificed by powerful people. . He added that the content of the drama is far from distorting history or defending dictatorship.

  • You know that is exactly what they will come here to say. One would think YG was in charge of production and funding of the show.


    And as the article says, a lot of those going on about distortion have not even watched a single episode of it.

    At the least, they only watched the first episode.

  • Sure, some jumped at the opportunity to hate on the drama without caring why it got criticism. But what about the victims & organisations that came forward?


    Everyone can have their opinion about this situation imo, but victims speaking up shouldn't be invalidated by grouping them with the others.

    This is a good point. I know there are so many people who probably hate on the drama just for hating but we can’t completely ignore these victims and organizations who come forward to express their feeling.


    Glad that it seems like some misunderstandings have been resolved and the controversy is over…for now.

  • i think 1987 was not that long ago, and is clearly still fresh in alot of peoples minds. In hindsight they were better off not setting it in that time frame.

    those claims from so called 'Victim'/'Organisation' are failed flat and thrown the to the trash by court

    Kind of my sentiment. I know it's fiction, but surely we can also understand people who lived through those times and suffered through horrible situations feeling sensitive about seeing the show on tv. It's not all black and white but I'm glad to see that the situation is possibly getting resolved bit by bit.
