Park Min-young, Song Kang secretly dating in Weather People’s new teasers
JTBC’s upcoming office romance Weather People (working title) has released another set of video teasers, this time giving us a better look at Park Min-young (I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day) and Song Kang (Nevertheless) on the job at Korea’s National Weather Bureau.
With weather serving as the background and theme of the drama, Park Min-young and Song Kang play co-workers who fall in love, and the story explores both the thrills and complications that come from dating within the workplace. As the two try in vain to keep their relationship a secret and separate their personal life from work, hijinks naturally ensue.
The first teaser opens with both Park Min-young and Song Kang looking up at the sky and observing the day’s weather. In the text screen that follows, we read: “Even with a 1% chance, the weather can change just as people can change too.” The teaser then cuts to Lee Sung-wook (The Silent Sea) who argues, “Forecasting is about probability,” and Song Kang retorts, “That’s why it’s wrong every day.” Meanwhile, Kwon Hae-hyo (Undercover) reprimands Moon Tae-yoo (Hospital Playlist 2) saying, “Who said you could release this special report without my permission!”
Park Min-young offers her opinion as well, “Even if it’s just a prediction, I think it is our duty to ensure we have more accurate data as a basis for the predictions.” Song Kang is impressed with her response and Kwon Hae-hyo addresses the team to encourage them to press on with their work. In a sequence of shots, we see the team carry on with their job duties. As we see Park Min-young and Song Kang smile at each other, the teaser comes to a close with Park’s narration, “I will tell you about tomorrow’s forecast.”
The second video starts with Song Kang’s warning about an approaching storm cloud and pouring rain. A frustrated Park Min-young asks him, “Who do you think you are?” but Song merely replies, “The rain is definitely going to come.” Sure enough, rain soon starts to fall and Park turns to look at him again. The same text screen from the first teaser appears, reading: “Even with a 1% chance, the weather can change just as people can change too.”
The teaser then jumps to Song Kang watching Park Min-young work and he muses to himself that his feelings for Park keep growing. Having started dating, he sneaks a hug at work and reassures her that they won’t get caught. In another text screen, we read: “The cruel tale of risky office romance.”
A worried Song Kang approaches Park Min-young after she overreacts to his conversation with another colleague. Still annoyed, she avoids his gaze and tells him in a formal voice, “Please refrain from discussing personal matters during work hours.” In the next sequence, we see the two stuck in many awkward situations and almost getting caught by Moon Tae-yoo several times. In the closing scenes, the two hold hands and smile at each other while Park laments, “Dating in the workplace will be the death of me.”
