With just a week left for the premiere of Hospital Playlist season 2, director Shin Won Ho and lead casts – Jo Jung Suk, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jung Kyung Ho, Kim Dae Myung, and Jeon Mi Do -- shared several details about the show through an online press conference. The press meet was held on Thursday, July 10, in front of the Yulje Medical Center set.
During the event that began with the self-introduction of main casts, director Won Ho and the actors spoke about the differences between seasons 1 and 2 of this popular medical drama. They also dished about changing relationships for central characters and teased romance for the doctors of Yulje Medical Center. They even revealed that the new sequel will begin with a time jump.
Changing Relationships and Romance for Central Characters of Hospital Playlist Season 2
Cast member Jung Suk, who portrays general surgeon Lee Ik Jun in the mini-series, asked K-drama fans to look forward to the changing relationships between the central characters in the new sequel. While some of the characters will continue to maintain their friendships, others may take their relationship to the next level.
The medical drama concluded its first season by teasing romance for Ik Jun, Chae Song Hwa, Ahn Jeong Won, and Jang Gyeo Wool. In the last episode of season 1, Ik Jun and his long-time friend Song Hwa were confused about taking their relationships to the next level. According to some K-drama fans, these two characters are likely to take the central stage in the second season without getting involved in a romantic relationship.
But for Jeong Won and Gyeo Wool, the new sequel could be packed with hugs, kisses, secret dates, and romantic meetings. The followers of this medical drama are looking forward to seeing them as an official couple of Yulje Medical Center in the first episode of season 2.
