Kim Mi-soo, a Korean actor who appeared in the current series “Snowdrop” as a supporting character, has died. She is playing Jisoo’s best friend in “Snowdrop.” She was 29 years old at the time. Kim’s agency, Landscape, stated in a statement on Wednesday that she “suddenly departed us on January 5.” “The bereaved are inconsolably saddened by the sudden sadness. Please don’t spread stories or speculation that aren’t true so that the family can grieve in peace.” Joongang Daily translated the agency statement, which stated that there was no cause of death.
Kim has been in two 2019 films, “Memories” and “Kyungmi’s World,” as well as JTBC’s drama series “Human Luwak,” tvN’s “Hi Bye, Mama!” and KBS’s “Into the Ring” (2020).
Kim was born on March 16, 1992, in New York City. However, due to various methods of calculation, the Korean media reports her age as 30 or 31. Kim (also known as Kim Misu) portrays a student activist who lives in a women’s dorm with protagonist Young-ro, who is played by Jisoo of the K-pop duo Blackpink.
JTBC Studios and Drama House created “Snowdrop,” which airs on JTBC’s Korean network. It is presented as a Disney Plus original in the rest of the world.
“Snowdrop” is a love melodrama set against the pro-democracy uprising of 1987. The series has provoked heated debate about its historical accuracy, song selection, and portrayal of North Koreans. Sponsors apparently withdrew their support, prompting the initiation of a petition to South Korea’s president, which reportedly gathered over 300,000 signatures. J Contentree and Blackpink’s agency, YG Entertainment, initially suffered losses as a result of the controversy.
