Of course, some people were not happy with the results too, and they had a lot to say. Find out how everything they spewed was proved wrong by reading more below!

JTBC's 'Snowdrop' is looking to air in March 2021 and the series will have approximately 16-20 episodes for the season. The hype for this K-drama is reaching new heights every day as the production is known to be top-notch and the cast is excellent too.

Snowdrop has the same writer as Sky Castle, which is one of the highest-rated K-dramas ever! I'm honestly super excited to watch it. Are you?

Everyone knows that Knetz and Jisoo's fans (including me) have been waiting for her acting debut since early 2017. Jisoo has acting experiences from pre-debut cameos, music videos, and advertisements. However, a certain lot of bitter K-drama fans had their views to offer too. Ouch?

People who religiously follow K-dramas tend to side-eye idol actors. Ever since the announcement, they accused Jisoo of nepotism, taking advantage of her 'pretty privilege', using her connections to secure the role, and have worked tirelessly towards undermining her talent. Can you believe it? I was tired of defending these baseless claims all day!

As they say, talk is cheap. Do you think it was fair to come for an actress that hasn't even debuted yet? Is there any way to justify these harsh accusations? Let us know in the comments.
