Drama Snowdrop Synopsis

This drama takes place in 1987, during a time when South Korea was ruled by a dictatorial administration.

Im Soo-Ho (Jung Hae-In) is a graduate student at Hosoo Women’s University who is covered in blood and decides to jump into the female dormitory to get some rest. Eun Young-Ro (Kim Ji-Soo) tracks him down and assists him in hiding. They begin to have feelings for each other.

Meanwhile, Eun Young-Ro is a first-year student at Hosoo Women’s University, where she is doing well. She is pursuing a degree in English literature. She met Im Soo-Ho for the first time on a blind date and fell in love with him at the first sight.

After that, Kye Boon-Ok (Kim Hye-Yoon) decided not to pursue a university education because of her poor family background. Currently, she is employed as a telephone operator in a women’s dormitory. Pretending to be a university student, she goes on a blind date with Eun Young-Ro, who she doesn’t know at all. Later on, Kye Boon-Ok becomes involved in a legal matter.

Last but not least, Lee Kang-Moo (Jang Seung-Jo) is the team 1 leader at NSP (National Security Planning). As a man of principle, he refuses to compromise under any circumstances.
