Kim Mi-Soo played Young-ro’s best friend of Jisoo in “Snowdrop”. The drama touches on a sensitive theme for South Korean citizens: the period of military dictatorship. They even signed a petition asking the government to bar the program from being shown on TV. The petition had more than 220 thousand signatures. The case delayed the premiere of “Snowdrop”, which was scheduled for the first semester.
