Despite much anticipation from K-pop and K-drama fans, JTBC's "Snowdrop," starring BLACKPINK Jisoo and Jung Hae In, received 200,000 signs for the Blue House petition that aims to cancel its future episodes.

The drama first aired on December 18 and tells the story of political conspiracy, espionage, and romance against the backdrop of the 1987 presidential election.

The petition, titled "Petition for Suspension of Drama ****", was posted on the Blue House National Petition website on December 19.

The author wrote, "At the time, the production team said, 'We have no intention of doing so, and there is no setting anywhere in the script for male and female protagonists to participate in or lead the democratization movement.' However, in the current drama where the first episode aired, the heroine mistakenly saved a spy against the pro-democracy movement."

"There are clearly victims of activists who were tortured and killed during the democratization movement, and I think creating such a drama clearly undermines the value of the democratization movement," the author added.

Along with this, a song that was used during the democratization movement was used in a scene of the drama, which caused discomfort to viewers.

The majority of the comments sympathize with the content, but there are also opposing opinions that don't want to cancel it, such as, "Let's watch it more" and "Now, we should refrain from excessive criticism toward the drama that has finished its first broadcast."

Nevertheless, attention is focused on whether "Snowdrop" will end up just like SBS's "Joseon Exorcist," which was abolished just after two episodes over history distortion.
