Snowdrop setting is during the 1987 Democracy movement, a mass protest movement to force the then-current authoritarian government to hold fair elections in South Korea. The main character Im Soo-ho was discovered dripping in blood by Kim Jisoo (no confirmed character name yet), a reason to hide him in her dorm room at her university. Later in the line, it is revealed that he hides a secret that is yet to uncover yet. Against the backdrop of government overthrow, the two develop a romantic relationship as the story unfolds.
