Court rules 'Snowdrop' drama can continue to air despite injunction by civic group

AKP STAFF

The Seoul Western District Court ruled in favor of JTBC drama 'Snowdrop' despite an injunction by a civic group.

Since its premiere, 'Snowdrop' has faced allegations of historical distortion, and over 300,000 citizens signed a Blue House petition to take the drama off air. Civic group Declaration of Global Citizens in Korea filed an injunction against JTBC on December 22 to cancel the drama.

However, the court has dismissed the injunction on December 29, stating, "Even if 'Snowdrop' is based on historical distortions, the probability the public will accept the inaccuracies blindly is low." The court also added, "Unless the content of the drama directly involves the civic group, it's difficult to argue it infringes on the group's rights."

JTBC is also arguing the allegations of a historical distortion are a misunderstanding, and future episodes will clear them up.

The Blue House has yet to respond to the petition against 'Snowdrop'.

I don't understand why everyone is so eager to predict doom for the series. If it hasn't been scrapped by now, it's probably for a reason.

it's already at episode 5 and no new accusations came forth. So, it's time to let it rest guys..your opinions on the matter isn't doing anything

okay people really need to let this go the network said they're not going to shut it down the blue house said there wasn't enough evidence to shut down several months ago when they review it and now a judge has dismissed a case trying to get it shutdown people need to accept that it's not going to get shut down and just move on
