JTBC's 'Snowdrop' hits a new low point with an average viewership rating of 1.7%

AKP STAFF

The controversial drama 'Snowdrop' has hit another low point in their viewership ratings.

As reported, the JTBC drama featuring BLACKPINK's Jisoo and Jung Hae In has been facing complications due to an alleged history distortion, leading to a significant drop in their average viewership ratings. After its special Friday broadcast, the third episode of the drama hit a low rating of 1.853%. And, on December 25, the rating hit a new low of 1.689%.

Netizens took to community websites and left reactions such as:

"They should just discontinue the broadcast..."

"What if it becomes 0%...it's possible"

"Interesting how it's still maintaining the 1% rating tho"

"I was excited until episode 2 and now my excitement is gone."

"I think the storyline might be a bit too difficult for the foreign viewers to fully comprehend, since they have to rely on the subtitles only"

"The facial expressions of the actors are a bit weak compared to the complex issues in the drama"

What do you think about this issue?

I am up to Episode 3 and from what I am seeing this drama also address the agencies and system that wrongfully accused students of being NK spies. The investigator confronts the Chief who wanted to stop the investigation, (summary of translation provided: "even with clear evidence that he is a spy you want to stop the investigation, however, we detained and interrogated innocent people and accused them of being spies." Let's see how this unfolds. If you are not viewing the show then you are only speculating about the content.

I find it hilarious that the very people accusing this show of being problematic won't even take the time to view it to see if they are right. They will continue to bad mouth this show without ever having watched it. If they would just watch episodes 3, 4 and 5; they would see that no one is being glorified here. Not the NSPA, not the SK and NK governments and not the North Korean spies. I have seen all 5, and I speak from experience. I lived in Seoul for all of the 80's and beginning of the 90s. I worked in "an information gathering" job. I know of what I speak. I see nothing wrong with this drama so far. But of course the naysayers refuse to even give it a glance, but then continue to bad mouth it. So, they really don't know. Thank God Disney has this or we might not get the chance to see it.
