Blackpink's Jisoo smiling in 2021

Fans are going crazy over Jisoo's upcoming acting role!

For years, fans have wanted to see Jisoo act in a drama, and now they will finally be able to see it! The first teaser for the drama she is starring in, Snowdrop has finally been released! Watch the video, below! 

  • At 26 years old, she is the oldest member of the group.
  • Fans first received the news in 2020 that she will be having her first role as a lead actress in the JTBC drama Snowdrop. The romance drama will air this year and fans can not wait!

Though Jisoo has starred in series like Arthdal and The Producers, fans are extremely excited to see her play a bigger role!

            Snowdrop will take place during the 1987 Democracy Movement in which there was a mass protest for the South Korean government to hold fair elections. This movement was big as after it, South Korea was no longer under authoritarian rule. While it is the backdrop, the male and female protagonists will not "participate in or lead the pro-democracy movement" as stated by JTBC. Last year there was controversy surrounding the plot as South Koreans feared it would distort history if the focus was on the 1987 Democracy Movement. However, JTBC stressed that Snowdrop is "not a drama that disparages the pro-democracy government". While there was fear that the drama would be canceled due to this controversy, fans are greatly relieved that they will still be able to see Jisoo as the lead actress.  

Jisoo will reportedly act as a university student who majors in English literature. She will be acting alongside Jung-Hae-in who gained massive popularity for his role in While You Were Sleeping in 2017. Fans are excited about Jisoo acting in this drama and who she will be co-starring with!

JTBC has not announced a release date yet, but fans around the world can not wait until they can watch the drama.
