The Korean drama, "Forecasting Love and Weather" is a romantic comedy that follows the story of Park Min Young, a weather forecaster who falls in love with Song Kang, a meteorologist.
The show is about how the two try to navigate and find their way through the ups and downs of their relationship in a world that is obsessed with the weather. The preview for this show may not be enticing to some, but many may find it to be surprisingly captivating. Some shared that it has been fun watching two people go through the challenges of their relationship while also having fun with their jobs.
The show was praised for its realistic portrayal of the struggles that come with dating in Korea. It also has an interesting take on how people can be influenced by weather forecasts.
Now, let’s get to know the main characters and their complicated setup.
- Jin Ha Kyung (Park Min-young) is the Director of Team Two of the Korea Meteorological Administration.
- Lee Shi Woo (Song Kang) is a young weather forecaster who always thinks outside the box.
- Han Ki-Joon (Yoon Park) is Jin Ha Kyung’s ex-fiancee who is the spokesperson of the Korea Meteorological Administration.
- Chae Yoo-Jin (Girl’s Day Yura) is a reporter for a newspaper that covers the weather forecasts given by the KMA.
The four main characters find themselves in a complicated setup when Ki-Joon cheats on Ha Kyung with Yoo-Jin who was living with his boyfriend, Shi Woo. Because of their infidelities, Ha Kyung experienced shameful gossip and pitying eyes of the KMA employees despite having been promoted to a director.
Shi Woo, on the other hand, gatecrashed Yoo-Jin’s wedding and stole the bouquet, which, for him, symbolizes his freedom from the pain and betrayal he felt by the newlyweds.
What Yoo-Jin and Ki-Joon thought was a ‘happy-ever-after’ turned out to be short-lived. Their whirlwind romance has resulted in misunderstandings, shortcomings, and some jealousy since all four of them constantly see each other in the same environment. And the development of Ha Kyung and Shi Woo’s relationship seemed to have affected both of their exes. As complicated as this circumstance is, it is only just the tip of the iceberg.
What’s really captivating about the series is that the show names each of the episode titles based on different weather terminologies, depicting how it relates to or affects their lives.
Whether we love Song Kang’s “Heat Index” or Min Young’s cold glances, we know for sure that we love this drama for all seasons, for all the weathers.
