– Forecasting Love and Weather Episode 16 recap contains major spoilers –

I don’t think I want to even know about Si-woo’s father in any way. I don’t want to know about his diagnosis and neither his problems with the law. Because it’s not the point of the show. I don’t know why we are so hyper-focused about him, why does this matter? On the other hand, Ki-jun and Yu-jin are now totally in for the baby after hearing its heartbeat. Because, magic!

Anyway, Hae-kyung, meanwhile, tries to talk to Si-woo, but he’s just too upset to talk to her. Meanwhile, Dong-han finally goes home and talks to her wife about getting divorced. He honestly tells her that he feels really bad for not even being able to come for dinner for his daughter’s birthday. On the other hand, Ha-kyung’s mother is all over Seok-ho and Tae-kyung and asks them questions that they clearly have not thought about yet. It’s just so uncomfortable to watch and the fact that her mother just ruined this relationship is astonishing to me.

Ki-jun, meanwhile, tells Yu-jin about the first time he fell in love with her. It’s a time when he was still with Ha-kyung, probably, so I really can’t find it romantic that this almost-married man fell in love with someone else and, you know, cheated on his fiancé. But sure, so romantic! On the other hand, people the office just shamelessly assumes that Ha-kyung is pregnant for… literally no reason? Apparently, no one in this office has any work ethic or anything to do so they just gossip about others.

Anyway, after a very cringe encounter on the work floor, Ha-kyung lets her coworkers know that she’s not pregnant and, in fact, she and Si-woo had broken up long ago. Now that that’s sorted, Ha-kyung just straight-up starts telling everyone that she’s not getting married and that she’s single. At lunch, instead of being able to sit alone, she is joined by Ki-jun who shows her the baby’s heartbeat. Well, she listens to it and looks so happy.

Ki-jun, however, asks her why she had to discredit him in front of everyone and that may be the reason he brought up the lie thing is that he couldn’t break up with her. He further adds that maybe she, too, is unable to forget him. Meanwhile, Si-woo runs around town trying to find his father but can’t find him anywhere. When he does get a hold of him, his father tells him to get together with Ha-kyung.

Si-woo implores him to come back if only to change the way he treated him for so long. He refuses to come back though, all of a sudden growing a conscience, and tells him that his dying wish is for him to get back together with Director Jin. He starts sobbing and continues to call him and is found by Ha-kyung’s mother. On the other hand, Tae-kyung is heartbroken when her manuscript is rejected and tells him that she wants to break up because she never reaps good results.

Also, I now just feel pity for poor Hyang-rae. I mean, the creators just butchered Dong-han’s character and left her constantly asking for his attention and validation. It’s just sad. Anyway, Ha-kyung learns a thing or two from the Director-General which helps her in making decisions and also in trusting in her decision. However, happiness is short-lived and we find Ha-kyung’s mother being a petulant child again, sitting outside Ha-kyung’s apartment without rhyme or reason.

Anyway, she brings up Si-woo and asks her why she can’t look past his father asking for his money. Maybe because Si-woo’s father steals from him, leaving him penniless and manipulates every one around him. But, you know, as long as she gets a husband out of it, it’s all good. Ha-kyung asks her mother whether it would’ve made sense to give up her own pride to cling to him and his mother doesn’t have any answers but tells her to, essentially, jump into it.

As the two drown in past memories, they both rush to meet the other and as it starts to snow, so does their romance. After confessing their love for each other, the two make up and kiss each other as it starts to snow.

After that, apparently, everything just falls into place. Dong-han’s relationship is apparently very good, Myung-joo, Su-jin all find their perfect ends, Seok-ho goes the extra mile for Tae-kyung and Si-woo now apparently lives with his father who is a model father. Things are as exciting as ever at the work floor and Hae-kyung looks content with what she has accomplished.

In the epilogue, Ha-kyung and Si-woo’s parents meet each other and after spying on their interaction, the two decide to make a run for it.

Final Thoughts: Forecasting Love and Weather Episode 16

I am just left so weirdly annoyed at all of this. I still remember when I had started watching Forecasting Love and Weather and it was fresh, entertaining and very easy-going. And then they introduced absolutely unnecessary plots, people and situations that do not go with the vibe. Threw in the most random things all at once and made this into a story that is absolutely unbearable.

Si-woo’s father and Ha-kyung’s mother getting so much screen time when it could’ve been utilized to focus on Ha-kyung and Si-woo was such a missed opportunity. Consequently, the protagonist themselves became unwatchable to the point that I hated them. The fact that someone can be this fickle-minded and unstable is astonishing to me, more so that two of these people end up together.

I hated watching all of this. But hey, I am glad it’s over. I really would just rather forget that this existed. So kudos for leaving me with no questions to ask.
