Forecasting Love and Weather (2022) Review

Review

JTBC’s new drama ‘Forecasting Love and Weather’ (directed by Cha Young-hoon, screenplayed by Seon-young, creator Kang Eun-kyung, produced by Npio Entertainment, JTBC Studio) depicts the work and love of the people of the Korea Meteorological Agency that are hotter than tropical nights and more unpredictable than local heavy rains. A work romance drama. Although it is a place that informs the weather most closely related to daily life, expectations are increased in that it is the first drama to be developed in the background of an unknown space, the Korea Meteorological Administration, where it is unknown what kind of people and how they work.

Above all, the combination of ‘Forecasting Love and Weather’ is perfect. First, creator Kang Eun-Kyung, who created popular works such as ‘The World of the Married’, ‘Misty’, and ‘Ms. Temper & Nam Jung Gi’, which recorded the highest ratings on JTBC, will write the screenplay by writer Seon-Yeong from Gline. In addition, in ‘When the Camellia Blooms’, which won the Grand Prize in the TV category at the Baeksang Arts Awards last year, he presented a unique direction that embraces a delicate and warm gaze towards people and a thriller full of tension at the same time. In addition, the casting news of Park Min-young, a roco-queen and Song Kang, a popular actor, and Yoon Park and Yura, who will add a ‘perfect fit’ charm to the character, completed the formation of the expected work that will succeed the JTBC box office genealogy.

First, Park Min-young takes on the role of ‘Jin Ha-Kyung, the general forecaster of the 2nd Division of the Korea Meteorological Administration. Ha-Kyung is a person who can work when it comes to work, self-management when it comes to self-management, and is straightforward in everything. Because of her principledism and her personality that draws a clean line from all human relationships, within the Korea Meteorological Administration, she is known as a ‘voluntary assassin (outsider)’. The high synchronicity of Park Min-young and Jin Ha-kyung, who have created characters that remain in the minds of viewers for a long time in each work with their ‘breaking’ acting skills, are already drawn in their minds, raising expectations.

Actor Song Kang will play the role of ‘Lee Shi Woo’, who is in charge of Special Reporting Division 2 of the Korea Meteorological Administration. Shi Woo is the owner of unconventional thought and a free spirit that is not bound by anything. His way of thinking and manners are very human, his IQ is 150. There is nothing he can’t do if he is determined and determined, but the only thing he is interested in is the weather. It is expected that Song Kang, a ‘trend’ who has conquered the small screen with his unstoppable charm, will unleash an acting potential that he has never seen before with the role of ‘officer’ who is challenging himself for the first time.

Yoon Park disassembles as ‘Han Ki-Joon, the informant of the Korea Meteorological Administration’s spokesperson’s office, and returns as an ‘elite’ character. A person who is as persuasive as a straight appearance is a logical standard. When he was a freshman, he was scouted to the spokesperson’s office by fluently explaining why he was struggling in the forecasting bureau’s general team. However, since he has been a model student all his life, his tolerance for failure is rather weak. It is predicted that a character will be born with the charm of Yoon Park, who is neat and smart.

Lastly, ‘Chae Yoo Jin’, played by Yura, is a weather reporter for a daily newspaper. She joined the press, imagining her wonderful appearance sending out articles as she traversed the scene where the scoop exploded, but Yoo Jin was placed in the ‘Weather and Life Team’. She finds it boring at first, but she develops a love for the unpredictable weather and the Meteorological Administration, which is constantly plagued by accidents. It seems that a fresh character is expected to be completed by adding Yura’s unique hot and bouncing charm to the role of a reporter with clear likes and dislikes and no middle ground.

The production team said, “Starting with the first script practice, we will start filming soon. The production team is also looking forward to what kind of synergy the perfect combination of writers will create. We will prepare passionately this summer and visit the small screen with the best work.”
