JTBC’s upcoming weekend drama “Weather Forecast People: Cruel Story of Office Romance” (literal title) released two new teasers!
“Weather Forecast People: Cruel Story of Office Romance” is a new drama about the passionate yet unpredictable work and love lives of people who work at the Korea Meteorological Administration, Korea’s national weather forecast service.
Park Min Young stars as general forecaster Jin Ha Kyung, an intelligent and highly organized individual who does everything by the book and is fastidious about keeping her personal and professional lives separate. Song Kang plays special reporter Lee Si Woo, a free spirit who is always thinking outside the box. Despite his impressive IQ of 150, all he cares about is the weather.
The new teaser begins with the text, “1 percent weather probability can change, and so can people’s feelings.” The weather can turn at any moment even with the smallest probability, so weather forecast director Go Bong Chan (Kwon Hae Hyo) can’t help but be strict. Differences in opinions arise as senior forecaster Um Dong Han (Lee Sung Wook) comments, “Forecasts are probabilities,” while breaking news reporter Lee Si Woo argues back, “That’s why they’re always wrong.” Neighborhood forecaster Shin Suk Ho (Moon Tae Yoo) and analysis action officer Oh Myung Joo (Yoon Sa Bong) are also shown busy doing their best in the high-pressure environment.
Jin Ha Kyung states, “Even if they’re predictions, I think it’s our job to use data that’s a bit more accurate to make these predictions.” Meanwhile, Lee Si Woo can’t seem to take his eyes off of Jin Ha Kyung as she speaks.
Another teaser has Jin Ha Kyung questioning, “What exactly are you?” Despite the sunny weather, Lee Si Woo replies, “It’ll definitely come. Rain.” Suddenly, people are running to escape the rain, and Jin Ha Kyung reaches out with her hand to touch the rain with a puzzled frown.
Lee Si Woo confesses, “It’s a big problem because I keep liking Jin Ha Kyung more.” The two secretly hug in the office as Lee Si Woo reassures her, “Don’t worry. We won’t get caught.” Although Jin Ha Kyung worries about keeping their office romance a secret, she can’t help but childishly act jealous when Lee Si Woo interacts with other people at work.
The production team shared, “We’re confident that the weather forecast people, who have fierce passion for the weather, and the thrilling office romance story, which will be unpredictable like the weather, will captivate the viewers’ hearts. Please look forward to the exhilarating work and love created with a 1 percent probability by Ha Kyung and Si Woo as well as the Korea Meteorological Administration’s employees.”
“Weather Forecast People: Cruel Story of Office Romance” will premiere in February.
