Jung Hae In And More Confirmed To Join BLACKPINK’s Jisoo And Kim Hye Yoon In New Drama By “SKY Castle” Creators
JTBC’s upcoming drama “Snowdrop” (working title) has confirmed its starring cast!
On October 5, JTBC officially announced that BLACKPINK’s Jisoo and Kim Hye Yoon, who were both confirmed to be starring in the drama in August, will be joined by Jung Hae In, Jang Seung Jo, Yoon Se Ah, and Jung Yoo Jin in the upcoming series.
The producers of the drama remarked, “As we have gathered a team of actors who have both top-class acting skills and visuals, we will greet our viewers with an especially high-quality drama.”
“Snowdrop,” which will be helmed by the director and writer of JTBC’s smash hit “SKY Castle,” will be set in Seoul in 1987. The drama will tell the love story of Im Soo Ho, a student at a prestigious university who suddenly rushes into a female dorm one day covered in blood (played by Jung Hae In), and Eun Young Cho, the cheerful and lovable student who hides him and takes care of his wounds even while facing danger under close surveillance (played by Jisoo).
Im Soo Ho, who grew up in Germany, has a gentle charm but gives off an air of hiding a secret. After falling in love with him at first sight at a social gathering, the lively Eun Young Cho happens to run into him again at her dorm, where she winds up tending to his wounds in hiding.
Yoon Se Ah will play the role of Pi Seung Hee, the notoriously strict and terrifying housemother of Jisoo’s dorm, while Kim Hye Yoon will play Kye Boon Ok, a phone operator at the dorm who had to forgo a college education due to her family’s financial circumstances.
Jang Seung Jo will be playing the role of Lee Kang Moo, the relentless head of the National Intelligence Service (NIS)’s Team 1, who always insists on doing everything by the book. Meanwhile, Jung Yoo Jin will play Jang Han Na, an impulsive and hot-tempered NIS agent who is passionate about her job.
“Snowdrop” is currently scheduled to begin airing sometime in 2021.
