Kim Mi-soo (also written as “Kim Misu”) was an actress in the series “Snowdrop” which was released December 18, 2021, in South Korea and on Disney+ Asia. The series was produced by JTBC Studios and Drama House and plays on JTBC’s network in Korea. “Snowdrop” will be presented as a Disney+ original series around the globe but has yet to debut on Disney+ in the United States.

Kim, born March 16, 1992, landed herself the supporting role of a student activist named Yeo Jung Min in “Snowdrop” who shares a dormitory with series protagonist Young-ro. The Disney+ description of the “Snowdrop” series includes: “In 1987, a bloody man jumps into a women’s university dormitory in Seoul. Young-ro, a female university student who falls in love with him at first sight at a group blind date, takes care of him despite the strict surveillance and dangerous situation. However, Young-ro is shocked to learn his secret. Despite heartbreakingly watching over his first love Young-ro, Soo-ho has no choice but to move according to the command in order to save his teammates and to go back to his home country where his sibling awaits. Young-ro rejects the will of her father and works hand in hand with Soo-ho to save her beloved man and her friends. What will happen to their fate?”

According to a report from Decider, before Kim’s death, she was cast in Disney+’s drama Kiss Six Sense and began filming.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
