“Forecasting Love And Weather” finale- review
“Forecasting Love And Weather” has been a mixed bag in my opinion and I find my conclusion of it to be sad. I always want to enjoy the kdramas I watch but sometimes, expectations get the best of me and sometimes, even with the best of intentions, screenwriters just don’t know when or how to wrap things up.
In short, “Forecasting Love And Weather” isn’t that terrible but its not great either. I’d say its an ‘okay’ kdrama. Granted, it still had many moments I liked, moments I’d love to see more of in other kdramas.
“Forecasting Love And Weather” theme was very nice and very unique. The way it was worked into the drama was freaking amazing and the screenwriter deserves praise for this part alone regardless of how she handled the rest.
“Forecasting Love And Weather” should’ve been 8 to 10 episodes max. That way, the drama would’ve not only been better but wayyyyy more memorable. 16 episodes was so unnecessary and truly derailed the script.
You can tell the screenwriter just doesn’t know how to carry on the conversation beyond episode 9 or 10.
The breakup of the main couple was handled sloppily and oddly in certain parts. The thing is, they both did such an amazing job communicating their thoughts to each other. Despite their age gap, it was a beautiful relationship and something all couples should aspire to. But then, when it comes to the most crucial point, suddenly, they don’t know how to communicate. For a couple that had such a good understanding of each other and understanding of how to communicate their feelings to each other, the way they handled their breakup is mind-boggling to me.
And I know its not because the characters would’ve failed to do that but its because the screenwriter doesn’t really know how to take it from there and is deathly afraid of trying something a bit different with it.
Spending roughly half the drama’s run time in this weird conundrum where they’re not lovers but also not completely broken up either is not really what fans want to see. Generally speaking, breakups in kdramas last an episode to two and are around the end of the run time, but they never take up about half of any given kdrama’s run time. The people who like the drama and the couple would feel alienated because they can’t see what they came to see and those who are on the fence will end up disappointed with the overall direction the drama took.
Aside from that, Song Kang and Min Young don’t share the best chemistry. I can tell they’re trying their best but they have shared better chemistry with other co-stars that people will always go back to.
All in all, “Forecasting Love And Weather” gave me hope at the beginning. I liked a lot of what it was doing but then towards the middle, the drama derailed and was never able to find its footing again, which is a shame really.
