Forecasting Love and Weather
Forecasting Love and Weather, an office romance drama featuring rom-com queen Park Min-young (Her Private Life) and Song Kang (Nevertheless), explores this whirlwind romance within the Korea Meteorological Administration.
In 2022, Netflix released the age-gap drama What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim? and Her Private Life by Park. This third office rom-com was critically acclaimed by Park, following previous hit films What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim? and Her Private Life.
Park Min-young stars as Jin Ha-kyung, a meteorologist at one of the forecast divisions. She vows never to get involved in another workplace romance but finds herself drawn to Lee Si-woo (Song Kang) when he catches her attention at work.
The show’s chemistry between its two leads is captivating to watch, especially since rom-coms can often delve into melodrama. It strikes a perfect balance between serious procedural and lighthearted rom-com, making it suitable for families. Parents will appreciate how realistically the drama depicts real meteorologists working together.
