"Forest" and "I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice" Bring Healing Romance

2020/01/22 Source

There are two works waiting for viewers with 'healing romance' amidst dark and tense dramas. They are KBS 2TV's "Forest" and jTBC's "I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice".

There have been a number of works in the first half of this year that provide a sense of tension, by tracking down serial killers and digging up social absurdities. First of all, a prophet who sees the moment before his death in "The Game: Towards Zero", in which he delves into the secrets associated with a killer 20 years ago, has a common denominator with OCN's new drama "Tell Me What You Saw", a suspense thriller that tracks a serial killer who was thought dead.

TvN's "The Cursed" is a mystery thriller about Im Jin-hee, a righteous reporter trying to uncover the secrets of Korea's largest IT company, Forest, meeting So-jin, a strong-spirited girl with special abilities, and fighting injustice. Kim Hye-soo and Ju Ji-hoon's SBS drana "Hyena" and Jo Jung-suk and Yoo Yeon-seok's tvN drama "Hospital Playlist" are also getting ready to take off.

In this 'genre flood', there is a healing romance that is filled with heavy emotions, feelings and warm emotions, even without the kind of tension that makes you sweat like a genre drama does. "Forest", which will air on January 29th, is the first drama in Korea to be set in a forest. The story is about people who have been hurt in realistic desires who gather in mysterious "Forest" spaces to look into the nature of happiness and heal wounds. The cast includes Park Hae-jin, Jo Bo-ah, No Gwang-sik, Jung Yeon-joo and Ryu Seung-soo.

Although the identity of the forest space and the scars of the main characters are still shrouded in mystery, the production team expects "Forest" to be a drama that conveys a message of deep emotion and humanity to modern people who are looking for healing amidst a harsh reality. The production claims the drama will be like a walking date in the forest with birds, wind, flowers and trees, unlike common cafe or movie theater dates, and it is going to be a real healing and comfort to those who are hurt in the city life.

If Park Hae-jin and Jo Bo-ah are in a romance that heals and comforts, Park Min-young and Seo Kang-joon will bring warm romance this spring in "I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice". "I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice" is a warm romance about Hae-won (Park Min-young), who goes back to her hometown for some peace, meeting Eun-seob (Seo Kang-joon), who runs a small book store there.

The production for "I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice" claims, "Something that is precious to us and cares most about us might actually be the closest thing to us, and we're forgetting it. The healing point of "I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice" is that we can find happiness near, and in small places". The drama began filming in October last year and it depicts the beauty of Korean winter and spring.

KBS 2TV's "When the Camellia Blooms", which recorded the highest viewer rating for a mini-series last year, has created a box-office legend in comparison to other dramas that cost billions of won to make. Attention is focused on whether "Forest" and "I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice" will gain favorable responses from viewers due to their different emotions from other dramas that are aired around the same time.


"Forest" is directed by Oh Jong-rok, written by Lee Seon-yeong, and features Park Hae-jin, Jo Bo-ah, Ryu Seung-soo, Jung Yeon-joo, Yoon Bok-in, No Gwang-sik. Broadcasting information in Korea: 2020/01/29~Upcoming, Wed, Thu 22:00 on tvN.


"I'll Visit You When the Weather Is Nice" is directed by Han Ji-seung, written by Han Ga-ram, and features Park Min-young, Seo Kang-joon, Moon Jung-hee, Jin Hee-kyung, Kim Hwan-hee, Nam Gi-ae. Broadcasting information in Korea: 2020/02/24~Upcoming, Mon, Tue 21:30 on .
