The great Song Kang experiment of the last year and a half continues with his upcoming male lead role in jTBC weather station romance Forecasting Love and Weather (Office Romance Cruelty). While viewers may feel female lead Park Min Young has been playing the same role for many dramas in a row now, the capable office worker, Song Kang feels like he’s being thrown in a bibimbap without anything hitting hard to indicate he’s perfect for that role. From high school hottie to shut in dude fighting zombies to helping old yeller’s achieve their ballet dreams to playboy-ing with same age college classmates to now romancing an older noona at work, it’s like he’s good enough at everything he touches without every impressing me enough at any one role/performance. I don’t feel too optimistic about this drama but it could have “that unexpected OTP magic” which elevates the usual K-romance formula into something exciting to watch onscreen. The posters are all over the place like Song Kang though, one is classic rom-com, another ensemble work palce, and the third like the two main leads are in a rom-com while the two second leads in a mystery thriller. I wish I could haha laugh but this just makes me nervous because I want to like this drama and have something to watch this February.
