The viewers questioned the possibility of Ha-kyung (Park Min-young) and Shi-woo (Song Kang) walking on a “flower road” when dating secretly.
In the latest episode of JTBC’s Saturday-Sunday drama “Forecasting Love and Weather”, there was a twist ending that got everyone taken aback. It was revealed that Jin Ha-kyung (Park Min-young) and Lee Shi-woo (Song Kang), who thought they would remain as general manager and special adviser, have started a secret relationship. Due to the thrill, the drama’s rating soared to reach the new peak of 10.2% (provided by Nielsen Korea, based on paid households in the Seoul metropolitan area).
So, will the couple be able to walk on a “flower road” when dating secretly? Let’s look into 3 questions raised by the viewers about how a secret love will end.
#Their relationship would be over if they get caught! Thrilling secret romance
It is said that there was a very important condition when Ha-kyung and Shi-woo began dating without letting anyone know. Ha-kyung, who has already experienced office dating, did not want to repeat the same bad history, said, “As soon as people in our company know (about our relationship), it’s the end for us too”. However, the road of a romance that only two people know will not be easy at all. Rumors have already been spread quickly within the Korea Meteorological Administration that Shi-woo was already meeting someone in the same company.
In the preview video for episode 5, Shin Seok-ho (Moon Tae-yu) even caught the moment of Ha-kyung and Shi-woo going to work together in Siwoo’s car. While the suspicious eyes of Seok-ho raised the tension, the viewers are also wondering whether Ha-kyung and Shi-woo will be able to continue exchanging love signals secretly without being noticed by the people of the General 2 department.
#. The encounter of cold air and hot air
Ha-kyung and Shi-woo have opposite properties. Principleist Ha-kyung resembles cold air, while Shi-woo, who does everything in order to achieve what he likes, resembles hot air. The two also showed a clear difference in the way they made the weather forecast. Ha-kyung made judgments based only on the scientific basis of figures and data, whereas Shi-woo prioritized the sense of accumulated experience.
When cold air and hot air meet, it is the law of nature to rain. Then, would it be the same for the love weather between two people with different properties who have just begun dating? For reference, the subtitle of episode 5 is “Local torrential rain“.
#. The mysterious call to Song Kang
The phone call to Shi-woo also added doubt. Shi-woo, whose trademark was his bright and innocent smile, crumpled his face to the fullest after checking the caller of the incoming call. Who was it that erased his smile? Viewers’ reasoning radar is heating up whether it was the mysterious woman wearing red high heels in Shi-woo‘s dream, or his ex-girlfriend Chae Yoo-jin (Yura), who shed tears after a fierce fight with her husband Han Ki-joon (Yoon Park).
“Forecasting Love and Weather” airs every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 PM on JTBC.
