The cast of controversial Korean drama “Snowdrop” led by Blackpink’s Jisoo thanked their loyal viewers after the drama came to a close on Sunday with a high audience rating.

A new video uploaded on JTBC’s official YouTube channel showed the cast of “Snowdrop” exchange meaningful messages for each other on the last filming day of the 16-episode drama.

The clip opened with a message from Jung Hae-In saying, "Today is the last day of filming. It’s time to say goodbye to ‘Snowdrop.'" The actor said he has mixed feelings about his last day on the set having clearly enjoyed the company of his cast members. He continued, "Usually when a drama ends, you feel relieved, but how do I put it? It’s bittersweet."

When asked about his message for Jisoo, Jung said, “I was very surprised by Young Ro (Jisoo) on the set because of the way she immersed herself into the drama and her attitude towards the staff. She has a bright and positive energy. She understood the director’s directions very well, and she showed them right away. I was surprised by her speed and skills.”

The 33-year-old actor continued, “Thank you for everything, Young Ro, and I really won’t be able to forget you. Jisoo is the best!”

Though the series’ final episode was heartbreaking, it earned an average of 3.4 percent rating Sunday – the second highest rating of the drama in its entire run. “Snowdrop” earlier scored its highest rating of 3.9 percent on its second episode in December 2021.

After Jung, Jisoo began her message by telling the viewers how much she enjoyed shooting the drama.

“It doesn’t feel real yet [that it has come to an end], but I think it will hit me a few days later. I’m still feeling dazed, but I worked hard, so I hope you all enjoyed it. Thank you for loving ‘Snowdrop’ a lot.”

She also thanked Jung for helping her in some of the scenes as it was her first time playing a lead character in a drama. “I think you worked hard to lead me because it was my first time playing a lead character, so I want to say thank you so much. Thanks to you, I was able to gain strength to film, so I really, really appreciate it,” the 27-year-old said.

Yoo In-Na, who played an undercover agent of North Korea, also praised her co-stars for being professional on the set. “They were all so very wonderful, professional, and sweet, so it was a really enjoyable memory,” she said.
