In a voice-over, the “Something In The Rain” actor says, “I’m sorry. It’s because of me.” The clip continues with a scene showing one of the lead stars touching the other’s hands. The trailer then ends with Jisoo's voice-over saying, “I miss you. I wish I could see you just once.”

Fans gave their stamp of approval for the on-screen partners on their first drama project. User @Kdramafilm1 tweeted a photo gallery with snaps of the old film “Love Story” and still shots of the “Snowdrop” trailer. 

“Snowdrop teaser is giving me Love Story – that classic campus/set romance [sic] w/ Ali McGraw & Ryan O’Neal – vibes, autumn & winter university setting, costumes, and a heartbreaking romance #Jisoo #JungHaein,” the caption said.

There were nearly 500,000 tweets for #Jisoo on Thursday, which were mostly fan reactions to the trailer.

"Snowdrop" is a drama set in Seoul during the 1987 democracy movement in South Korea. It follows the complicated love story of university students Su Ho (Jung Hae-in) and Young Ro (Jisoo) whose lives become entangled in mass protests during a tumultuous time in the nation's history.

Jung plays a student from a prestigious university who suddenly appears at a women's university dorm, bloody and wounded after getting involved in a violent street protest. Jisoo, a cheerful English literature student at Hosu Women's University, finds Jung and cares for him while dodging danger posed by authorities, as per Pinkvilla.

"Snowdrop" is set to air on Dec. 3 and will be carried by Disney Plus as part of its slate of Asia-Pacific films and TV shows as per Deadline.
