    I'm curious to see whether Attention will eventually get to 600k Uls or atleast beat Dalla Dalla's Uls

    This person is a pro editor then, seems like a waste of skills to me 💀

    I photoshop as well after getting taught at school and help out friends and family in my free time with some tasks. A picture this realistic would have to have an insane ass editor with a lot of dedication, skill and time on their hand. Considering this has no other "original picture" and would have to be added together based on some parts from other photos, I don't want to imagine the torture this person would have to go through to color correct everything and add shadows and lighting this detailed, making everything blend naturally into the background, also adding stuff in the background and colour correct that too, lol. Seems like a shit ton of effort for something that can easily be denied and shut down by YGE and HYBE lol. More likely case is that is simply real and people are in denial. Anyway, they better figure out who hacked her phone or is leaking this, bcs it's pretty fucked up this is getting posted without their consent. They seem like a sweet couple, people need to leave them alone.

    The Conservative leadership during that period is still one of the biggest stains the right has. The politicised aspect of the show (i.e. JTBC being right leaning, the elections in a few months etc) could and I think (hoping anyhow) is just a coincidence. But if your the right-wing in this situation, anything that legitimises some of the actions undertaken in that period is a small step.


    By showing there were North Korean spies posing as students is one thing that provides credence to the arguments used by the ruling party to search, detain and oppress students. Whether the ML has taken part in the protests or not isn't relevant (and we currently haven't see him do that), he's still there with the pretense of writing a thesis. Scheming happens on both sides.


    You'd want to influence younger minds as they are the future voting population and are also easier to influence in general, especially through a huge kdrama. I don't think you can swing either way on whether this is being pushed as propaganda or not yet. If the things about the writer and her husband are true (and she sort of has history with Bridal Mask), it would add more credence to the argument it is though.

    In the most recent posts I was reading on the qoo, there were a couple of them about BP and koreans were legit calling them "Ilbe group" which were pretty shocking insults. Seems like Ilbe and right wingers are going all out on promoting this drama apparently which is another part this scandal is so huge.

    The Blue House can’t fine JTBC, they stated in their first response that they aren’t interfering in these things. It’s the KCSC that is responsible to investigate and deliberate rather a broadcast is violating any regulations. If there is, they give the broadcast the chance to edit or censor the problematic parts.

    You're correct on the fines, it seems it was a one time incident where they did do so but not something they usually do but my point is that the blue house in theory is more a way to bring attention to a certain issue. They def won't cancel Snow Drop tho, that's on Disney+ and JTBC

    I mean you can't really shut down a drama because you don't like what it shows or says that kind of goes against the whole freedom of speech rules and borderlines in censoring and dictatorship. The petition at the Blue house won't shut it down either, Blue house can actually fine JTBC for it but not shut it down. The petition is mostly used to bring attention to it. It's more that Snowdrop risks JTBC or Disney+ dropping it because they don't see any worth in continuing especially now with Navers recent article on Disney+ mentioning a 45% drop in korean users due to the Snowdrop boycott. I honestly don't know what will happen and what JTBC will do but they should adress the situation.

    I think international fans are making the mistake of thinking the Gwanju uprising ended in 20th century. The issue didn't end there, it is still going on. Right now, in Korea just like you have in multiple countries there is an issue of liberal vs conservative going in the country. Korean conservatives to this day very much claim the NK spy conspiracy is real and go out of their way to harass the victims of the event. A good example of this is the extreme right community Ilbe (basically koreans version of Q anon, horribly anti feminist, racist, anti LGBT and incels, also responsible for the incel attacks this year including An San) who go out of their way multiple times to harass victims and families of the event. They would change statuses of victims of the protests from "student" to "NK spy" in online documents, they would send pictures of the students corpses to their families, go protest and throw slurs at women in front of the Ewha Women's university (original name of the drama, one of the universities involved with the protests), discriminating against people of Gwangju etc. This is very much an ongoing issue, so for koreans to see a drama put in an actual NK spy is just enraging after the years of harrassment from right wingers that their beloved who died or got tortured was actually an NK spy. Especially now that these same communities that harassed them such as Ilbe are using the drama to further their own anti democratic narrative.

    Where are you guys getting all this information? I was literally searching for this, but can’t find it.

    You can't directly enter Ilbe's community which is why you couldn't find it, majority of Ilbe's reaction to snowdrop gets circulated through other korean forums and media (this community is highly monitored for obvious reason, they were also the ones behind the incel attacks on multiple women this past year including Olympic winner An San)

    To claim that someone is using a Drama for right-wing propaganda and to manipulate the election and going as far as claiming that Blinks and BP members are in support of it is slander….

    I don't know much about the election part and I very much doubt BP has anything to do with it but I don't think it's a stretch at all to find it suspicious that a known right-wing media outlet is putting out a highly controversial drama that is validating the death of the students during the uprising by the inclusion of a NK spy, a narrative Korea's right wing has been using for years now. The drama literally only celebrated in Korea's equivalent of Q anon spaces such a Ilbe or FMkorea (highly anti feminist, racist spaces that regularly make fun of the Gwangju uprising and Sehwol Ferry incident). Even right-wing journalist Kim So Jeon made an article saying that snow drop is a good representation of history because of the NK spy in the story (this guy openly says all of the people killed during the uprising are spies and not innocent students). If so many right - wing associated medias, people and communities are coming together to celebrate the drama, you must realize there is obviously something wrong here?

    Wow… you know that what you are doing right now is slander ? You can be sued for this.


    It’s one thing to criticize JTBC, the writer or director for the plot etc… But going as far as to spread rumors about them being right-wing and the writer too and that this was a conspiracy to influence young people to join the right wing party.


    Now Blinks and BP themself are part of the propaganda…. Ok rookie user I see your mission here….

    I can't speak on the director or writer but the JTBC part is literally not slander tho lol, JTBC is literally owned by the Joogang Ilbo, which is one of the three most right wing newspapers in Korea (cho - jong - do - trio).

    In episode 2 of Snow Drop, there was a scene with an NSA soldier in a sauna with girls trying to question them. They didn't answer her, so the soldier left. You know what this is scene trying to replay? In the actual uprising, Kim Geun Tae, a student got dragged out of the sauna by the NSA and got tortured so extremely bad he ended up getting Parkison disease. This is what Koreans mean with Snowdrop trying to paint a wrong narrative about the NSA, they wouldn't just leave, these people had no pity or empathy.


    Not just that, Idk if you all realize it but freaking ilbe is celebrating this drama and Jisoo is becoming a poster girl of this community. Ilbe is a far right community and is one of the communities still believing in the NK spy conspiracies. I think there is obviously something wrong if a notoriously far right movement is celebrating this drama. That's the equivalent of becoming the poster girl of the Q anon people.

    I mean trying to be kind of neutral here but the fact that people in this thread are already questioning whether there were actual NK spies during the democratic uprising pretty much proves that the koreans concerns of the drama misrepresenting what happened during the event to foreigners are completely valid. This is pretty much the exact thing they were afraid of. In Korea there has been a continuous political fight between the right conservative party who to this day claims the Gwangju uprising had North Korean spies while the left democratic party are supporting the victims of the event who fought for democracy. The whole issue of the drama was that it basically works as right wing propaganda and looking at the answers in this thread it does seem to be going that way.

    Ohh, nice one going in there to actually bare it back, LMAO. Also afair, weren’t you guys the forerunners of saying aespa were creepy? Literal hybe stans back when aespa’s concept were announced 🤷🏽 Now stripping the earth to defend.

    girl, i didn't say shit about Aespa. I don't particularly care about them, I don't hate or like them. I love how you deflect by trying to bring something up I wasn't even involved with and If I remember correctly literally everyone was shitting on LSM for that, mostly because people were making it weirder than it was.

    lmao u act as if "peace disturbed, go on quest and find treasure/goal" isn't the most basic and overused storylines in existence, I can literally point out like 10000+ stories like this, heck even kpop groups. Ateez even have something similar in lore. I shouldn't be surprised tho, Aespa stans were trying to accuse even TXT of plagiarism because they had a portal to another world in their MV.
