JTBC’s “Forecasting Love and Weather” is a new romance drama about the work and love lives of people who work at the Korea Meteorological Administration, Korea’s national weather forecast service. Park Min Young stars as the frosty Jin Ha Kyung, who does everything by the book and is fastidious about keeping her personal and professional lives separate, while Song Kang stars as the free-spirited and determined Lee Si Woo, who boasts an impressive IQ of 150 but only cares about the weather.
In the previous episodes, Jin Ha Kyung and Lee Si Woo started a secret office relationship. These are the three questions viewers have on the future of their upcoming romance:
Thrilling relationship – It’s over if they’re caught!
The secret relationship between Jin Ha Kyung and Lee Si Woo has a very important condition. Jin Ha Kyung, who has already experienced a failed office romance, didn’t want to relive the tragedies of her last relationship. She announced, “The moment we’re discovered by the people at work, we’re also done.” However, the two were off to a difficult start from the beginning because the people at the Korea Meteorological Administration had already discovered that Lee Si Woo is dating someone at work. In the preview for episode 5, the couple even gets caught by Shin Seok Ho (Moon Tae Yoo) while coming into work together. With Shin Seok Ho’s growing suspicions, viewers are curious to find out if Jin Ha Kyung and Lee Si Woo will be able to continue their relationship in secret.
The meeting of cold and hot air
Jin Ha Kyung and Lee Si Woo are opposites in nature. The meticulous Jin Ha Kyung is like cold air, while Lee Si Woo is similar to hot air because he doesn’t hold back in front of what he likes. The two people are drastically different even in the way they forecast the weather. Jin Ha Kyung must consider the tens of billions of wons (tens of millions of dollars) that go into public expenses from forecasting, while Lee Si Woo considers foremost the intuition he has developed over time through experience and data. When cold air meets hot air, it is bound to rain. The beginnings of their relationship raise the question of whether they will have bright or rainy days in their future. The subtitle for episode 5 is “Regional Torrential Rains,” however, causing uneasiness about what lies ahead.
Lee Si Woo’s mysterious call
Another question about the upcoming episodes is the call Lee Si Woo receives. Although Lee Si Woo normally has a bright and innocent smile on his face, his expression becomes stiff after checking the caller ID, raising questions about who could be on the other side of the line. Viewers are wondering if the caller is the mysterious woman wearing red heels in Lee Si Woo’s dream or if it is his ex-girlfriend Chae Yoo Jin (Girl’s Day’s Yura), who had a big fight with her husband Han Ki Joon (Yoon Bak).
“Forecasting Love and Weather” airs every weekend at 10:30 p.m. KST.
