Hospital Playlist Season 2| Plot| What’s the next chapter supposed to be?
As we all know, the series is so amazing that its first season received multiple awards. So, for the folks who haven’t watched the first season yet let us first take a quick summary about season 1 before getting into the synopsis of the second one.
The series revolves around the five doctors who are friends from the time they were in their medical school since 1999 and currently in their 40s. The character of Lee Ik-jun who is an assistant professor of general surgery and specialized in transplanting of Liver. He is a single Father who looks after his son alone following his separation with his wife. Kim Jun-wan who is an assistant professor of cardiothoracic surgery and seems like a very cold-hearted person but is actually just being professional with his work. Ahn Jeong-won who is an assistant professor of pediatric surgery and is emotional, caring and kind also gets emotional for his patients really easily along with that he thinks to be a priest as he is Christian. Yang Seok-hyeong who is an assistant professor of gynaecology and obstetrics, separated from his wife and cares a lot for his mother. Chae Song-hwa who is the one and only lady in their group. She is an associate professor of neurosurgery and recognized as flawless by her mates.
At the end of season one, the fans were trying to figure out whether Lee Ik Jun and Chae Song Hwa will confess their feelings for each other or not. Finally, Ik Jun somehow managed to get all the courage to express what he feels for Song Hwa and this made the doctor incredibly nervous with her ex-colleague. Before Song Hwa could make any decision, Ik Jun told her that she is free to take appropriate time to get into a decision and after that he took a leave to go for a meeting in Spain. The fans are eager to see what their relationship will look like further. On the other hand, Seok-Hyeong looks forward to the upcoming life in a happy way after he decided to stay at the hospital instead of taking over his dead father’s company. Towards the end it was seen that he receives a call from his ex-wife now the thing that needs clarification is whether she is willing to reconnect with him and build a relationship again or she wants to get the money that she is entitled to after the demise of his father. Although it’s clear that he wasn’t glad to see her call. We may see that in the second season.
We may expect all these questions to be answered in the second season.
