Forecasting Love and Weather

A romance drama about the work and love in the office of National Weather Service, hotter than tropical nights and more unpredictable than localized heavy rains.

Jin Ha Kyung (Park Min Young) is an intelligent and highly organized individual who does everything by the book and is fastidious about keeping her personal and professional lives separate. Due to her cold demeanor, she has few friends at work and has become an “outsider by choice.”

Lee Shi Woo (Song Kang) is a free spirit who is always thinking outside the box. Although he can appear clumsy, he boasts an impressive IQ of 150 and is able to achieve anything once he sets his mind to it. However, in spite of his intelligence and abilities, all he cares about is the weather.

Han Ki Joon (Yoon Park) is a handsome and quick-witted character with a silver tongue. Using his formidable powers of persuasion, Han Ki Joon eventually gets scouted by the spokesperson’s office after struggling in the early days of his career at the service. However, because he has lived his entire life as a model student, he has a hard time dealing with failure.

Chae Yoo Jin (Yura) is a daily weather reporter. Although she went into her job with lofty dreams of breaking news, exciting scoops, and on-site reports, Chae Yoo Jin was ultimately assigned to the “weather and lifestyle team.” While she was initially disappointed by the assignment, she eventually comes to grow fond of her job.

First impressions:

First off, I am a huge fan of PMY and SK. I’ve watched most of their series. As always, amazing lang jud ang cinematography sa mga kdramas. Anyways, this is about office romance, just like other office romance dramas and they just added the noona-dongsaeng arc. But what makes this interesting is the setting, this is the first drama I watched wherein the characters work in a weather station. One of the things I like about kdrama is the amount of research they put in. This drama highlighted the impact of the weather forecast in SoKor. Here in the Philippines, we hardly even look at the weather for the day, but apparently didto sa ila dako kaayo ug impact. They even have ozone warnings, I’m like what?!

As for the romance on this one, hhhmmm, SK always has daring roles. I think sa episode 2 ata tong they slept together. Tumabi ka na Nabi, ganda ni Min Young. I like how open PMY and SK in their feelings about each other. Makes me wonder, maybe ingon ani jud dapat ang relationship, you should both sit down and talk about your feelings. Anways, the plot is murag nag-exchange ni sila. Funny in a way pero murag kadaghan na ni nagamit na arc.

If you’re looking for something light lang, you should watch this. Aside from the visuals, I think there’s a lot to learn here.
