What did the Chinese consider appropriate for wind and rain?

The rain () is gentle (), the wind () appropriate (調).

順調 (순조) can mean "favorable," "smooth," "satisfactory," "seasonable," "normal," or "appropriate." So, what did the Chinese consider "favorable" or "appropriate" in regard to wind and rain? Well, the following expression supposedly has a similar meaning to the one above:

[Every] fifth [day] () wind (); [every] tenth () rain ().
