This is part 2 of our recap for When the Weather is Fine!
Caution: Be wary of typos
Shorthand Character Chart: coming up
How we do this: This live recap will be in two parts and we segment each post around every 10 minutes. Sometimes sooner, sometimes later depending on the scene. There will be typos which we have fantasies of fixing once the episode finishes airing. Also, if there is a preview then we will try and translate it. Look for that at the bottom or on a separate post!
KOREAN DRAMA I’LL SEE YOU WHEN THE WEATHER IS FINE EPISODE 15 – PART 2
Hye-won goes to a restaurant to drink and cry. It is raining buckets outside. She sits and drinks and thinks about what her aunt said about turning herself in. She also thinks about her mom and why she never told her where she lives or how she lives or why she never answered her mail or meeting requests.
She remembers telling her mom to leave because it was uncomfortable to have her around and yelling at her to get out of the B&B. She also remembers her aunt chasing her at the lake to keep her from killing herself.
She remembers a lot of things about her past. She also remembers the train ride back where her aunt asked her why she wants to die and that she shouldn’t die. If you die then I die and your mom dies and we all die. That is the thing. We all die.
Hye-won keeps drinking and crying and thinking all the thoughts.
Eun-seob tries to re-shelve books but he misses Hye-won and thinks about her.
Hye-won is in bed. It is morning now so she wakes up looking horrible, her hair is all over the place (though still beautiful, lol). Then Bo-young opens the door. It looks like she slept at Bo-young’s place last night.
Bo-young gives her something to eat and says that she went out with some other teachers and saw that she was passed out. She wonders why she drank so much, did you have an argument with Eun-seob?
HW – Bo-young, I also liked you. I liked you. That is why I was hurt by you. Because I trusted you that much and liked you. Everything I had to undergo that time was all because of you so I could not forgive you too easily. I don’t think our relationship will be as it was before.
BY – Can we just have a little crack? It is not like you can only eat at a perfect table with no blemish. Whatever we spend time on, we have blemishes. There is no perfect relationship. If there is a little crack, then what does it matter. What if we have a little pain to each other. What is so bad about it. We are all not perfect. That is why we make things to blame each other and hurt each other. That is how we live. I gave you unforgivable pain. But I really wanted to have a new chance. if you are still not ready, then I will wait for you. I don’t know, if more time passes, maybe it can be better.
It is still raining outside.
BY – The rain is nice.
Hye-won looks at Bo-young who is looking at the rain. Then we cut to her catching a bus back home. She gets inside and looks at a mother and daughter happily smiling on the sidewalk to each other.
Cut to Hye-won’s family having a happy moment at the B&B when she was little. They are braiding grandmothers hair, her aunt and mother are there as well. Grandmother thinks she looks like an alien and everyone laughs. They are having a very fun time.
In the present, Hye-won walks back to the B&B. There is a police car there. She sees the police car and is instantly worried. She takes off running to the door thinking that her aunt is turning herself in. Sh starts yelling to the cop.
But actually some guys are taken away in handcuffs so Hye-won wonders what is going on. Her aunt shows up to wondering what is going on. The cops says that these guys were having a naked party and ran this way. He asks what Hye-won was yelling about. Hye-won says nothing and goes inside.
They both go inside. Her aunt asks if she was surprised because she thought she was turning herself in? Hye-won asks why she put the photo of halmoni there? It wasn’t always there. Emo says it is because she never came back ever since umma died. I missed her.
Hye-won tells her emo that she hates her. Emo says that she understands.
HW – You did it because you thought I would have a hard time. I thought I would understand you but I still don’t.
MY – Why not.
HW – I think we can share pain together as a family. So let’s share pain together. Don’t turn yourself in. If you survived for ten years for mom, then why don’t you live the next ten years for me. You said if I die then you die and halmoni dies and everyone dies. I was in hell back then. I wasn’t the person who did it but I was also in hell. If you turn yourself in then I will be in hell again. So why don’t you just live like we are now. But I can’t take you like we were before. For now, I need time to absorb it. I will leave.
MY – What?
HW – I will leave, Emo.
Hye-won leaves. Emo is surprised at the turn of events and starts to whimper. She braces herself on the sink.
Hye-won goes outside and looks at the bookstore.
She goes to the bookstore and lets herself in. Eun-seon is refilling the coffee machine with coffee. She says his name so he turns around.
HW – Can I talk to you?
ES – Yes.
ES – Do you want a coffee?
HW – *shakes head*
ES – It is okay.
HW – Emo said she will turn herself in. I told her not to.
ES – You did….
HW – Yes. But now I can’t look at emo. So, I am leaving.
HW – Spring came.
HW – I hope your bookstore goes well and I hope that you stay a warm person like this. My heart has never been fake, you know that right?
ES – *nods softly*
HW – Then, goodbye Eun-seob.
She turns and walks out. He lets her go. She goes back inside the B&B.
HW – I am back.
She looks around and thinks about Eun-seob. She remembers giving him a big hug in the car. She sits alone in her room and continues thinking about Eun-seob and how much they love each other.
She decides to go back to the bookstore. But she sees a sign on the bookstore from Eun-seob that says “I am leaving the bookstore for a few days.”
She remembers Whi telling her that Oppa would be in the woods at this time of day.
So she runs to the woods.
Eun-seob burns some papers int he fire and goes outside. He sees her running up to him. She gives him a big hug and cries.
VO – Hye-won ah, I understand you will leave here some day.
HW – I am sorry Eun-seob.
VO – I am ready for everything. But, when you leave. Hopefully my heart is not so heavy. I hope your heart is not heavy and you leave the town happily without getting hurt at all.
HW – I am sorry.
VO – I hope that from the bottom of my heart.
He also returns the hug.
Eun-seon sleeps alone in his house. It looks like Hye-won slept there last night also. He wakes up and sees her covers folded next to him. he sits outside and sees her boots sitting there? OR someones boots.
VO – (HW) Are you disappointed because I am not listening?
VO – (ES) No, but I still love you. Goodbye, Hye-won.
Hye-won is somewhere by a tree digging up something. It looks like she is digging up her cell phone which is by a tree at the Buddhist temple. She puts it in her pocket and grabs a bag to head out. She is all dressed up just as chic as when she first came to the town.
Goodnight Bookstore Journal
posted by Seob
After keeping this journal, the volume of today started to exist.
All those accumulated days didn’t present any changes to me
Then when she came this winter and we loved each other
Those days didn’t accumulate as equal peace anymore
Today’s volume is different than before
it will be different next winter
The coming winters volume that I don’t know yet
I posted that I am closing the bookstore for a few days. My nerves are a fully stretched bow.
I decided to unload everything and rest
Everything looks like it is being tied up nicely, and I can understand why Hye-won has to leave the town for a bit. It all makes sense y’all. I feel bad for Eun-seob who has to stay in town and give Hye-won her space. Our quiet pining hero is only surrounded by his books and loved ones now, but not the woman he loves. Poor thing. But I am pretty confident that she is going to come back next winter as poetically as she always comes and all will be well.
EPISODE 16 PREVIEW
ES – I am sure you are living well. I am the same.
Woman – When did you come?
Woman – Are you never coming back again?
Woman – If possible, it is better not to for each other
Crush – I like you
JW – What?
Crush – I like you Jang-woo
YW – How did you know that when I said I liked you for a long time, that wasn’t 100% truthful
I am sad this thing is ending tomorrow.
Me too. I wouldn’t mind it to be 50 episodes drama with all the side characters story fully explored. I put it in the same shelf with Just Between Lovers. I love them both so much.
Just wanted to let you know that your picture says “Episode 15 Part 2”!
In other news… thanks for the recaps! I am sad that this is ending – both excited and dreading tomorrow’s final episode. It was great several weeks and everything is tying up neatly. Can’t wait for our Marshmallow couple to reunite and to see Jangwoo finally getting his woman
Thank you! Big catch, just updated it. Whew, it was one of those morning. 🤪
Thank you so much for the recap. I don’t I can bear to watch it until after tomorrow’s episode. I need to know that there will be a happy ending to look forward to before I put myself through the pain of their break up in this episode.
I agree with you, with the inevitable need for HW to leave. Mostly i don’t with asian drama last chapter separations, but I kind of wanted HW to go back to Seoul and deal with what had pushed her back home. She is stronger than she thinks and I feel like she can take on some of those battles. However I think she found what perhaps made her chose to run away instead: a feeling of no matter what results, whether failure or victory, you are loved and supported.
I wonder about the title though… I’ll come to you when the weather is fine. But she leaves when the weather is fine and only comes for winter. But perhaps I’m reading it wrong… because for some the snow is the best time of year. I guess I just want to believe that the title is alluding to her finally coming to town, to ES when the weather is fine, i.e. spring/summer i.e. forever? *sighs* please let this all be well for everyone.
It is safe to watch the final episode! And they mention the title as well 🥰
Thank you so much for the subs! This was one wonderful drama. This was the first time I watched something on air and I found myself waiting for mondays and tuesdays. The characters and the setting gave immense peace to the heart almost like I was watching the rains outside my window sipping a cup of hot chocolate. Thanks! Please do make more of such dramas where people are respected and revered for what they are.
The setting was so peaceful!
I really love this drama because of the laid back atmosphere of their town and how much they love books. It’s so sad the end will come tomorrow, as they said, some good things never last. I just hope that it will be a happy ending and Hae Won will realize that her life with Eun Sop is better than living alone in Seoul. I am going to miss the BookClub Members and i’ll keep on wondering how Hwi’s love life will turn up. Season 2 would be better with Hwi as the star perhaps?!
I love the laid back nature as well! It has been so nice to watch.
such a wonderful romantic stories all around
loved the couple Hwe won & Eun sob, I greatly adored their characters
but not so happy of the show ending 🙁
would’ve love a little stretch of episodes to settle and calm the winter season through spring
thank you for capturing the different side of town setting energy
So happy to recap this show, BCala, it was so lovely. 🥰
Please be a happy ending! Please make them together and happy ever after! What a peaceful drama. I’m too afraid watching the last episode.
