Kim Ji Soo as The Sweet Eun Young Ro
Blackpink’s Kim Ji Soo is a natural in front of the camera. We have seen her acting abilities through her guest appearances in music videos and various shows. Ji Soo’s presence in Snowdrop is going to take the drama to another level. Furthermore, this is Ji Soo’s first main role in a kdrama, and understandably fans cannot keep calm. The director of this magnificent kdrama, Jo Hyun Taek, revealed that he refused to give such a significant role to a rookie actress. But that was only before he met Kim Ji Soo, the all-rounder. Her character in Snowdrop goes by the name Eun Young Ro.
Furthermore, Eun Young Ro is a girl with such purity and kindness that she literally glows. Her good nature and willingness to help others have earned the name ‘Sunshine of Husu University’. When she sees Im Soo Ho injured and helpless, she is reminded of her brother and risks her life to nurse him to safety.

Lee Kang Moo is determined to catch Im Soo Ho at all costs. Additionally, his role is perfectly portrayed by Jang Seung Jo, which is a given if you have seen his work in The Good Detective, Familiar Wife, and My Son In Law’s Woman.
Yoo In Na as the mysterious Kang Cheong Ya
The cherry on the top in Snowdrop is definitely Yoo In Na. Let’s be honest, just Yoo In Na’s presence is enough to make us watch the kdrama. However, to make things even better, Yoo In Na will be playing a mysterious character named Kang Cheong Ya. She is the mistress of Nam Tae Il, who is the Secretary-General of the Democratic AEMIN Party.
But she isn’t just any mistress, Kang Cheong Ya is the mastermind behind Nam Tae II’s successful career. Although she acts innocent and unbothered, Kang Cheong Ya is harboring a deep secret.
