Why our guild was closed? I’m not even done with the game I was hosting
YNK because there’s not a lot to choose from
For those who don't know why Koreans are upset about this:
"This show is about an terrible event that happened in late 1980s in SK, when SK was under dictator based on his military power. This dictator killed hundreds of students who rallied against his dictatorship, and called the students spies from north korea.
This terrible human is still alive (very old but still alive) and has many followers who still believe that these innocent students who just wanted democracy were spies. The show SNOWDROP’s main plot is a young student saving a protester who is actually a secret spy. Sounds familiar? It should be because I just explained above. This is what former president chun du hwan claimed to kill hundreds of innocent students."
"South korea is a country that had multiple dictators, with multiple fraud elections. But with events like June spring, we were able to become country with democracy where every citizens opinion matters. In between, a lot of young innocent lives were taken. And these hard work they put in for our democracy should NEVER be downplayed or be subject of comedy."
Also the official synopsis of the show, people indeed know what its about:
According to the official synopsis, Snowdrop is a love story set in 1987 between ‘Im Soo Ho’ and ‘Eun Young-Cho’.
Im Soo-Ho is a Korean-German student at a prestigious university and barges into a female dorm at Hosoo Woman’s University one day covered in blood.
Eun Young-Cho, a cheerful and lovable student, helps to hide Soo-Ho and dresses his wounds from whoever was chasing him.
However, what Soo-Ho doesn’t realise is that the two have already met at a blind date – where Young-Cho had already fallen in love with him.
aka a romance between a north korean spy and south korean protest. Eun Young-Cho is based off of real woman Chun Young-Cho
Can I also report a mod for posting wrong information?
Official synopsis my ass
Honestly I'm really tired of seeing shit like this and seeing people say "oh you're gonna get cancelled". It's like people trivialize how people are affected by racism by assuming this kinda stuff is gonna placed on the same level because it's all just "people being sensitive"
It's a fucking face mask.
Any other black person will tell you the same. Legit nobody is even sweating her about this so what's the point??
GD got dragged because he had a history of doing blackface and posted that pic of his face painted black with zero context, wearing a hoodie at the same time a lot of people were posting hoodie pics for Trayvon Martin.
U cant blame me for being sceptical
Pann usually comes up with the most ridiculous articles didnt know 41k people has signed a petition for snowdrop to be cancelled
Honestly, your comment wasn’t that bad. Remember how the same people here used to trash pannchoa and call the knetz jobless. You can’t blame yourself for being cautious. But you didn’t downplay their concern or what’s currently happening with tv shows. So I don’t understand why the discussion should stop just because someone think we’re disrespecting the stance of knetz.
I think the issue here is that Koreans don't want the severity and seriousness of the movement to be downplayed.
I guess it could also be considered a cultural thing, but the thing that puts me off is people trying to police how they(Koreans) feel, considering none of us here are actually Korean.
For many people, the first reaction is "Oh Knetz are overreacting again, not a big deal" which is really ironic considering we are KPOP fans...stanning groups and listening to music...from Korea.....
That was my main issue.
About your quote, I think omnimorphism summed up my thoughts quite nicely. Movies like Jojo Rabbit and shows like South Park almost never end up bending history in favor of the an inhumane movement(like the Nazis) nor are they(for the most part) historically inaccurate. The main concern is that Koreans don't want the drama to end up downplaying the severity of the movements Koreans did for democracy and the awfulness of the government back then. That's what I've gathered from many posts from Koreans about this anyway.
I hope I explained my thoughts clearly :oops:
So I went back from the very first page and read all of the comments
Aside from hueningkaiskai 20 knetz comment ( let’s talk later Kai). No one downplayed their concern about the portrayal of their own history. The rest of the comments are all about ‘can we wait for the drama to be out’ ‘can we wait for the plot’, then blinks discussing if they should just cancel it, and ofc the same comment as yours, spoiling the whole discussion, ‘they’re not even Koreans to comment about this’ ‘ifans only care for koreans when they dance’.
And I seriously find that annoying. Why? Because that takes away the whole point of the thread, we are all discussing if it just better to scrap the plot, remove some part, or totally cancel it. We are actually having a decent discussion. Setting aside the false plot and just focusing on the statement of JTBC, we should not even involve knetz on this. And I believe we did not for most of the part.
So yes don’t be a spoil sport, stop taking away the chance from people to comment on things. Just because you think their comments are stopping the other side for taking their stance. When they’re not.
“Just eat more”
if you don’t shut up, I’ll fuckin shove food on your mouth until you choke
If if doesn't involve you then don't quote...? I know that many others are staying neutral and I appreciate that. My comment is for the ones that are blindly defending the plot and trying to police Knetz.
So what’s the plot?
That’s the problem? Do you understand why these people are “blindly” defending the plot. Because there’s no official plot released to the public? We are all in the dark here. So your comment is not necessary really.
Some of y'all defending broadcasting corporations, writers and directors and ignoring a big part of Korea's history now...what has KPOP come to Just shows that some international fans only care about Korea/Koreans when they perform and entertain them
Oh please. A lot of people are quiet about this. No one is defending who. Do you expect us to believe leaks on the internet rather than the producer of the show?
And a lot of people said here that we want it to be cancelled or scrapped period
So I’m not sure where is this bullshit coming from? We are discussing here the things can be done to the show. So stop with the generic comment “oh yall”
Also, check out the dates at the bottom banner, which is supposedly advertising for an English held from May 18 to Aug 18. May 18 is the date of the Gwangju Massacre (which is referred to as the "May 18 Movement".) Aug 18 is the date of Kim Dae-jung's death.
This is not something a Korean person can do by accident. "May 18" resonates among S Koreans like "9/11" does for Americans. If you're making a drama about the dictatorship period, you're not putting in "May 18" by accident.
From what main Allkpop article someone posted this comment.
Well then, I’m glad this was brought to light earlier. They can cancel it to save themselves from more trouble or completely scrap out that.
It does though lmfao
They are bullshitting there a literally leaked pics about the set.
And what was exactly wrong with the set leaked so far?
I’ve seen the pictures of the lead in a university or am I missing the others?
Please don’t make this a fanwar. No one is dragging your faves here.
And you seem uninformed about actual Korean opinions on other platforms including Twitter. They aren’t doing kumbaya with this show.
If sponsors leaving is not an indication of how serious this issue is then I don’t know what else to say to you
And again those claims/opinions were shut by JTBC already! The alleged plot was actually not true. The issue here now is JTBC calling it dark comedy. But how can we really know what they mean by ‘dark comedy’.
We know it’s serious. And I understand because in any country, when history is not portrayed right, the studio will be called out.
The problem is that you guys are still spreading that fake plot even after the clarification. For what exactly?
I’m actually glad that this happened early as now, that the drama is not out yet. Because they can still change what they think will piss the gp.
Firstly, you are not Korean
Secondly, they experienced that. Not you. So don’t invalidate their anger
Thirdly, no one has a problem with the history in the first place. It’s because this drama is trying to change some parts that paint the bad people as good. Check the movie made in 1987 if they distorted history in a bad way like this drama is trying to do.
I think if only they didn’t use actual people in this, and made up random characters the drama could have been tolerated.
At this point even if the plot changes from what was leaked, I don’t think Koreans will let JTBC get away with it. They are pissed
euentbug what do you think?
So what’s the basis of your claim? Are you one of the producers of the show? Or an insider? Because JTBC clearly stated that all of the leaks you guys are spreading are fake?
“I don’t think Koreans will let JTBC get away with it.”
You guys are dying for this to happen and it clearly shows the way you guys jump on this topic, when there’s nothing confirmed yet about the drama.
Happiest Birthday to one of the most talented, kind hearted, hard working, and prettiest individual to exist! Thank you for being Jisoo's dearest companion and sister of the pinks all these years. We love youu
KEEP SHINING LISA
JTBC said shut up jobless people
