The second season of the hit series “Hospital Playlist” (슬기로운 의사생활) will premiere exclusively on Netflix on 17th June! That’s good news because fans have been waiting, and we’re super excited to be reunited with the gang.
Season 1 left us with many questions, so it’s thrilling to finally get some answers and see where everyone is at now. Check out the reasons why we’re eager to see the second season here.
1. The Friendships
The group of doctors have been friends for 20 years and they are friendship goals whether they’re fighting over food or when they’ve got each other’s backs. Their lasting friendship is so wholesome and as viewers we feel like an honorary sixth friend. We love it when they get on each other’s nerves and we love it when they support each other. They’re all unique and have distinct personalities that we’ve fallen for. There’s also plenty of friendships to enjoy beyond the main group of five friends.
2. The Romances
Romance is possibly in the forecast for the entire squad. We can’t wait to see how everyone’s relationships might have progressed. Jeong-won (Yoo Yeon-seok) and Gyeo-ul (Shin Hyun-been) shared a romantic kiss at the end of the first season, so will they be going steady in season 2? How will Song-hwa (Jeon Mi-do) respond to Ik-jun (Cho Jung-seok)’s confession? Will Seok-hyeong (Kim Dae-myeung) and Min-ha (Ahn Eun-jin) be lucky in love? What will happen with Jun-wan (Jung Kyung-ho) and Ik-sun (Gwak Sun-young)’s long-distance relationship? So many questions, but we are definitely ready for the romance!
3. The Laughs
The characters have their own quirks and there are so many funny scenes. From moments like getting their head glued to a Darth Vader helmet to trying their hardest not to get caught dating their friend’s sister, you’ll be smiling and laughing every episode. There are also a ton of relatable funny moments when the friends are eating and teasing each other. Ik-jun is definitely one of the funniest though, transforming into a frog with his bandaged fingers and singing and dancing to “Pick Me.” Can’t wait to feel cheerful and giddy with funny scenes from the new season too!
4. The Music
With the friends gathering weekly to practice as a band, there is a lot of good music to enjoy. Three of the actors are also musical actors, and each of them play their instruments for real. Although Song-hwa is tone deaf, actress Jeon Mi-do isn’t. The OST also brings back nostalgia since the band covers older hits like “Lonely Night” and classical music like Pachelbel’s Canon. Cho Jung-seok even won the Golden Disc Award Best OST and Seoul Music Awards OST Award in 2020 for his cover of “Aloha.” Definitely looking forward to hearing more great music through their jam sessions and more.
5. The Heartwarming Moments
“Hospital Playlist” isn’t too heavy on drama like typical medical dramas. However, there are heartwarming moments that balance out the light-hearted fun. You’ll be able to relate as characters experience life, death, and everything in between. From relationships with their parents and family to experiencing loss, you’ll feel moved. At its core, “Hospital Playlist” is a slice-of-life series about a group of friends. Don’t be surprised to discover yourself tearing up, whether it’s due to the heartwarming scenes or even because of the funny scenes!
