What is Snowdrop about?
The story of Snowdrop takes place in November and December 1987. In the movie, Lim Soo-ho portrays a graduate student who is discovered covered in blood by Eun Yeong-ro, a female university student. She hides the boy from the government in her dormitory room at her women’s university. Soo-ho is not who he appears to be. Against the backdrop of political upheaval, it becomes clear that this may not just be a simple love story between two people but rather something more akin to an epic drama.
There has been a lot of controversy around Snowdrop, as it became the subject of historical negationism. While some of the defenders of Snowdrop have pointed to the need for respect that must be given in order freedom of expression. However, the Political commentator Chin Jung-Kwon urged the public to “just watch the drama as a drama”. Taking into account the controversy and the justifications, its selection of historical backdrop is rather confusing. The story of Snowdrop takes us on a difficult and treacherous journey – it is a love story between a North Korean spy and a university student set in 1987, a year when many protesting students were accused of being North Korean spies and brutally suppressed.
