I am watching and its so sad to know that it will end so sooner.
am watching and i like the twists, so sad
I am a filipino and i am so thrilled with its storyline not knowing any related depiction of its history..
What matters is its fictional dramatic scenes that are alike to korean culture ….
I love this drama so much, it’s one of my favourites and it’s sad to know that it’d be ending soon. We need a season 2 please!!
I love you Jtbc, thanks to all the crew and cast, thanks for giving us such an amazing drama, snowdrop fans love you so much ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Why end soon? Am watching this drama and in fact, is eagerly waiting episodes 12 until 16. I really loved this drama and am saddened that it will end earlier than expected. Its story and the actors especially Jung Hae In and Ji Soo are so good. In spite of this development, congrats to the Snowdrop team for a job well done!
Best show currently that I’m watching. I know things are fiction and even the over the top politics in the show demonstrates that. Hope the ending is not rushed but played out what it is originally planned.
Sooo love this kdrama big fan Of HaeSo hoping there’s a Season 2 please JTBC make another season
I absolutely love this drama, its addictive & keeps you on the edge of your seat every week. It’s acted to perfection & the plot is amazing. Surely the purpose of good TV is to keep the viewer engaged & entertained and Snowdrop is fantastic, will miss it.
I love this drama. So far snowdrop is the best series that i’ve ever watched. I love the story and the actors , their chemistry( jisoo and haein) are the best. Its okay for me to end soon as long as they will keep the story until the end no cut, no rush. I just hope that it will have a happy ending.
