– Forecasting Love and Weather Episode 11 recap contains major spoilers –

Forecasting Love and Weather episode 11 starts with horrible news – Si-woo was in an accident rendering him unable to open his eyes. As the entire office, including Ha-kyung, reels from the news. Yu-jin is there with him and we get to see the moment this started, with Ha-kyung asking Si-woo to go for the assignment away from her. Si-woo remembers something that Ki-jun had told him – Ha-kyung doesn’t date anyone who isn’t marriage material.

As Yu-jin separates from her husband, Ha-kyung is taken aback by Si-woo enthusiastically accepting her proposal. He’s obviously not thrilled about it but the cheating couple’s relationship breaking apart does impart some sort of happiness in my frigid heart. Either way, Ha-kyung is taken aback when she gets to learn that Yu-jin is with Si-woo at the hospital.

Two before the incident, the KMA gets ready to analyse the heatwave that’s about to roll in, Si-woo constantly pings her and asks her about duck soup, which she blurts out in the meeting. He later volunteers to go to the typhoon centre, which obviously irks Ha-kyung. However, their hot and cold behaviour towards each other not only gives whiplash to each other but to the audience as well. I am a little confused with where they stand with each other considering one day they are lovey-dovey and the next they want space from each other.

Either way, the team decides to have a staff dinner that night to wish Si-woo well but the atmosphere doesn’t change in the room because Si-woo cannot understand Ha-kyung’s changing moods. She follows him to the break room and asks him what’s up. He unloads on her and tells her that he isn’t a kid – he’s her man. He makes it clear that he’s not her ex and that she needs to keep his past where it belongs. That he’s hurt that she keeps him at a distance and undermines him for the fear that he might hurt her like Ki-jun.

However, this is creating issues in their relationship since he’s been there for her 100%. So, the lukewarm relationship that they have right now will not work for him. If she wants to rethink the relationship, she deserves to do that. However, whatever she chooses, she needs to be committed to it. Ha-kyung it taken by surprise and Si-woo reiterates that she needs to think about what she wants to do with their relationship while he’s at Jeju Island.

Ha-kyung, however, has more pressing issues. The articles on the heatwave anger her and she calls Ki-jun to ask him why he isn’t doing his job. However, he tells her about his separation from Yu-jin and the two end up discussing what went wrong with his relationship and marriage. During this discussion, Ha-kyung gets a fresh perspective on where she went wrong with Si-woo, the patterns she kept repeating. It’s a moment of realisation for both of them.

 That night, at the team dinner, Ha-kyung, Myung-joo and Su-jin are the only ones who show up on time. Si-woo meets with Ha-kyung’s overbearing mother who gives him a rundown on marriage and what it entails while Dong-han spends time at the hospital with his daughter. The three girls have a good time together and the female-only dinner is a total win. Later, Si-woo meets a very drunk Ha-kyung at the park where she tells him that she can only love people moderately. Anything over that makes her anxious. That’s who she is and he needs to make a decision whether being in moderation with her is something that he can be ok with.

With this discussion the night before, an anxious Si-woo gets on his flight to Jeju and a hungover Ha-kyung gets up to find him gone. We then jump to the first scene. As everyone gets news of the accident, Ki-jun gets to know about it as well and is not happy with Yu-jin being with him. Ha-kyung blames Ki-jun for making her the way that she is and for pushing him away. As she sobs, Ki-jun stands there watching her stunned.

And because things just can’t be simple, there’s a typhoon out there that needs to be monitored. Dong-han takes charge of things in the office while Si-woo’s father arrives in front of the KMA promising to kill everyone inside.

Final thoughts: Forecasting Love and Weather Episode 11

Forecasting Love and Weather is simply turning into a melodrama as the episodes progress. With no tension in the action room anymore, we are left to watch adults act like children day in and day out. And what is it with Ha-kyung not being able to identify her own problems? The fact that she tries to blame everything on everyone else is not only annoying but her conviction for it is infuriating. Moreover, her having this personal connection with her cheating ex-husband and discussing his failing marriage feels like a recipe for disaster. The fact that Ki-jun is an insecure piece of crap doesn’t help the situation one bit.

I am all for messy, real relationships. But at this point, the series keeps repeating the same version of events in almost every episode. The fact that they cannot understand where they are going wrong, coupled with their inability to have a mature conversation regarding what they want and don’t want is what adds fuel to the fire and drags the series on badly. I still have hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. But, honestly, I am not here for this level of silly drama.
