Rain with bouncing droplets

IS this possible with blender? I think I looked into this a while ago and someone mentioned it needed “reactive particles”? Sorry if that’s wrong I’m not clued with particles. IS there any way to make rain in blender (with bouncing droplets) AND look realistic? I’ve seen many videos on youtube but they all seem to look like chunky jam drops.

If the bouncing is not possible, would it be possible to fake it? I think i remember an interview with the creator of Metal Gear Solid 2 where they made the main character an emitter so it just looked like the drops were bouncing off him.
