Why oh why , not revealed the world top secret as known as SongHwa first love.

 

Why not established the story of Ik jun & Song in season 1.Why oh why we have to wait till season 2. 

 

Why oh why did not reveal the Song's  answer to IkJun question.

 

This is me and ik Jun & all the Ik song shippers to the writer v& director. As Ik Jun is equally frustrated just like us. After waiting for 20 years he now has to wait even more for at least a full more year.

5 reasons why "Hospital Playlist" is the best healing K-drama 


"Hospital Playlist", a drama that gives viewers a sense of comfort and empathy through small stories in everyday life, concludes part 1 with episode 12.

 

7F6A9490-64F9-4A62-9D54-272A902F6604.jpg

 

The last episode of the Thursday drama "Hospital Playlist" (tvN) broadcast on May 28 recorded an average rating of 14.1% and the highest rating of 16.3% based on the standard of households using paid platforms including cable TV - IPTV - satellite TV. In addition, regarding viewers aged 20~49, the drama recorded an average viewership rating of 9.1% and the highest rating of 10.4%, thereby ranking No. 1 regarding ratings of viewers of all ages from 10~50 across all channels including terrestrial TV (according to the nationwide paid platform standard, provided by Nielsen Korea).


In the final episode, the image of Jo Jung Suk (as Ik Jun), Yoo Yeon Suk (as Jeong Won), Jung Kyung Ho (as Joon Wan), Kim Dae Myung (as Seok Hyung) and Jeon Mi Do (as Song Hwa) facing new changes and challenges in life have got the audience's support. First, Jeon Mi Do went to the Sokcho branch as planned and Jo Jung Suk, who once missed out Jeon Do Mi in the past, confessed his feelings to her. Besides, Yoo Yeon Suk dismissed his lingering for the pastor position he has been dreaming of for a long time and decided to stay at the hospital. Next, he and Shin Hyun Bin (as Gyeo Ul) have signaled a start of a relationship after confirming the affection for each other through Shin Hyun Bin's confession.

After Kwak Sun Young (as Ik Sun) went to England and began a long-term romance, Jung Kyung Ho carefully considered and decided to send the ring to her. However, an unexpected situation happened that aroused viewers' curiosity when the parcel he sent to Kwak Sun Young was sent back. Besides, Kim Dae Myung refused the will to ask him to inherit the company of Nam Myung Ryul (as Seok Hyung's father). He received the sympathy of the audience when saying, "It's a waste of time. Things I want to do. Things I love. I will live and do them now." In particular, season 1 ended with the appearance of Kim Dae Myung's ex-wife, thereby stimulating viewers' curiosity until the last minute.

As such, "Hospital Playlist" has brought many new experiments such as intriguing developments in each episode, seasonal broadcast, 1 episode per week, a combination of music band and medical topic, etc. The following is a summary of noticeable points in the drama "Hospital Playlist" season 1 that brought comfort and healing to the viewers amid high expectations for season 2.

 


# The incredible chemistry of the 5 main actors Jo Jung Suk, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jung Kyung Ho, Kim Dae Myung, Jeon Mi Do and the impressive performance of other characters

127C24A7-F4F6-49BD-A5A7-E5833823994F.png

 

Through "Hospital Playlist", Jo Jung Suk, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jung Kyung Ho, Kim Dae Myung, and Jeon Mi Do once again asserted their "reliable actor to watch" title. Their similarity to the characters and perfect chemistry has played a central role that helps the drama cause a frenzy right in episode 1. Notably, the five actors' synergy and restless "quarrels" as 20-year soulmates have maximized a sense of reality and made audiences immersed in the drama. Besides, the Yulje Medical Center distinctive specialists like Jung Moon Sung, Shin Hyun Bin, Kim Joon Han, Ahn Eun Jin, etc. alongside the charismatic roles of different generations like Kim Hae Sook, Kim Kap Soo, Moon Hee Kyung, Kwak Sun Young, etc. also equally shine, contributing to enriching stories in the drama.

 


# Feeling healed through the empathy, comfort, and power of sincerity in gentle stories

"Hospital Playlist" has aroused viewers' sympathy through gentle daily life stories of ordinary people. The film offered warm comfort and healing by expressing the joy and sorrow of different people living together in a hospital. PD Shin Won Ho once shared, "I wanted to show the truthfulness of that story so I recorded all the happy, sad and interesting moments in everyday life." Like PD Shin Won Ho's wish, the small yet genuine stories of "Hospital Playlist" have captured the hearts of viewers.


# The songs of memories reinterpreted through the accompaniment of the band of 5 friends

Another reversal of "Hospital Playlist" is the band. The songs of memories making the past stories more dramatic received an explosive response from the audience when raising the emotions through the performance of the 5-member band. Notably, the band's songs appearing in each episode are directly performed by the actors, thereby bringing a surprise to viewers and increasingly drawing them to the drama. Thanks to the efforts of the cast as they put all their efforts into practicing musical instruments for a year before the official filming, these songs have become the focus of attention. As a testament to this popularity, the OSTs inserted into the band's music-playing scenes also gained immense love when claiming high rankings on digital music charts.


 

#Pioneering in improving production environment through by-season system, new one-episode-per-week film watching form, and complying with working time

Spoiler

88D4941D-0D3E-4A2F-B6C2-FF4BE96EE55C.jpg

 

"Hospital Playlist" pioneered a new model of movie enjoyment through a planned season system, with a one-episode-per-week adjustment starting from its planning stage. In a press conference for "Hospital Playlist" in March, PD Shin Won Ho shared, "In consideration of soaring production costs and the changing working environment in the context of fierce competitions, I pondered if I could continue to produce dramas in the form of two episodes a week. That's why I wondered what it would be like if I tried making a one-episode-per-week TV series. The drama was produced very smoothly, so it was proposed as a new role model in the broadcasters circle. I planned it while carefully thinking about how it would be if the production environment and movie viewing form changed." The one-episode-per-week experiment has become more meaningful as it is considered one in many ways to comply with working time. In fact, the American films that maintain the advanced TV series production system are also following the one-episode-per-week broadcasting form. That's the reason why the public easily realizes the efforts in improving the production environment while complying with working time by the one-episode-per-week broadcast of "Hospital Playlist" in the film industry. This experiment is viewed to enhance stable production and improve the completeness of the work. This leads to the success of season 1 and heightens the anticipation of season 2 that will be on air in 2021. The one-episode-per-week system of "Hospital Playlist" has been proven through the viewership ratings. The drama causes a frenzy with an opening rating of 6.3% in episode 1 and an ending rating of 14.1% in the last episode.


# Special medical drama made by director Shin Won Ho and screenwriter Lee Woo Jung - the reliable-to-watch duo

Spoiler

Director Shin Won Ho and screenwriter Lee Woo Jung, the duo that always creates a good effect when achieving both viewership ratings and the sensation level in each of their works, has once again proved their status of "worth-watching director-screenwriter duo" through "Hospital Playlist". The detailed direction of Shin Won Ho in combination with writer Lee Woo Jung when faithfully portraying the story of ordinary people around us has created another drama of a lifetime. In particular, instead of focusing on medical expertise, the two created a medical-based drama of their own by concentrating on the stories of people living in the hospital and their lives.

Besides, ''Hospital Playlist Special'' - the program about the stories behind the drama ''Hospital Playlist'' will be broadcast at 9:30 pm (KST) June 4. Additionally, viewers are looking forward to the live performance of Mi Do and Falasol, which is expected to be broadcast live for fans of the film. According to the plan, after "Hospital Playlist Special" ends, this performance will be broadcast live through the YouTube Channel 15ya.

Hahahahaha! I know, right? I legit thought he was going to kiss her but since we're apparently firmly in reality land with IkJun and SongHwa, we only got a shoulder squeeze. WHAT?! And that's supposed to tide us over until next year? Considering IkJun's restraint though, it does make you wonder what their kissing scene would be like. After all those pent up feelings, I'm guessing it's going to be pretty hot.

I've been watching but not posting.  

It's the only Kdrama I've been following right now.  Now that it's over I'm not sure how I will distract myself from the reality of the world.

 

Season one wrapped up one loveline and that leaves 3 or 4 to wrap up.

 

I really like Jang.  I'm glad she got JWon because that is who she wanted.  I'd have been happy if she matched with IJ because I really like both of those characters.

 

I think the Jang-JWon pairing was a surprised to some who forgot at at his core JWon perpetually lied by omission.  Despite knowing him for years, few of his friends knew about his family wealth and none of them knew about his running at his Daddy-LongLegs charity.  So whatever is dear to JWon's heart he keeps it a secret until he must act on it.

 

I think the maggot scene was what brought Jang to his attention.  It reminded me of the Pope's practice of washing the feet of parishioner at Easter.  It is the ultimate sign of service.  As others have mentioned why single Jang out by deliberating withholding praise. JWon is impersonally kind and considerate to everyone so why not Jang. Well he was determined to leave.  It would be dishonorably to encourage her affection even if he returned it because a relationship with one woman was not how he had chosen to do his life's journey.  JWon did give you God for Jang; he stayed for the children, but figure if he were going to stay, he might as well have Jang in his life.

From Reply 1988 (the only Reply drama I've seen so far) I suspect that this writer likes to give awkward late blooming women the prince of their dreams, so . . .

 

Speaking of R88, JWan and IS relationship dynamics reminds me of Bora and SunWoo form Reply 1988, so I'm not too worried about their ending.

 

Personally I find the mystery of IJ and Song story interesting because it seems to have the least movement/progress, but I suspect when it is revealed, we will see it is the oldest.

 

I thought it was interesting that in E11 when Song said she was leaving for a year, JWon and SH were looking at Song and IJ was looking at nothing. That all that makes sense form a storytelling perspective.  We know how IJ feels so it makes sense that he wouldn't know how to deal with the emotion around Song leaving. JWon and SH looking at the source of the news also made sense.  What was unexpected is that JWan was looking  at IJ checking to see if he was okay.  This telegraphs that he knows the depth of IJ's feeling for Song.  

 

It's clear that JWan knows that IJ's feeling of Song isn't the same camaraderie that the other guys in the group feel.  But I also don't think it is because of what is happening now.  I think Jwan knew of IJ and Song's relationship in college. It is also possible that he didn't know that IJ  and Song's relationship in college and that IS told him about IJ's feeling for Song. At one point IS told JWan that IJ should have pursue Song when he had a chance (or something like that).  Like everything else, it can be read as a general statement referring to no time in particular--in a way similar to how all the mothers seem to want Song for their sons.  Or it could be that IS speaking of a time in college when she knew IJ was interested in Song.  But then IJ's feelings for Song hasn't been a mystery for sometime. The open question has been Song's feeling for who?

 

I think Song and IJ were dating in college.  I think she was waiting for IJ on her birthday when SH confessed and IJ didn't show up. IJ might be a bit odd but he isn't full off delusional.  He wouldn't buy a ring for someone without a least a slight indication that the person might accept it.

 

I think Song loves IJ but she fundamentally doesn't trust him.  IJ chose to protect SH's feelings over Song's in the past and then he went and got married.  I also doubt that group was aware of their relationship.  It's bad enough to have a relationship go bad, but it is worse when that relationship was hidden from everyone.  That means Song went through the break up alone with no one to comfort her.  Even if Song loves IJ  she doesn't trust that he wasn't abandon her again.  I don't think she is pining for him.  She is living her life and she'll have other relationships but they have a connection.

 

I think IJ after giving up on his love of  Song has been particularly passive in love.  Someone pointed out that the way he discussed his sister's approach to love was actually about his own approach to love.  He said his sister's lover would have to love his sister more than she loves him, and would have to chase after her. I suspect that shift came after his relationship with Song died.  I think IJ wife chased him and he allowed her to catch him.  IJ was committed to his family, but he was not committed to his wife. Cheating is never good, but his wife was breaking her marriage/family but not IJ's heart.

 

JWon's accusing IJ of fooling around with Jang early in the drama is there to be re-examined once JWon and Jang's relationship is settled.  It shows that JWon's thinking was warped by his feelings for Jang and that lead to to accuse his fundamentally honorable friend of doing something dishonorable. 

 

It also give you a way to measure the difference between how IJ interacts with Song when he is married and when he is divorced/free. His relationship to Song changed once his divorce was done legally and emotionally.  He began to slip into their old physical ease of proximity of when they were dating.  They ate together all the time. Before we mostly saw him socialize with her in the group. He sat closer to her.  He touched her more frequently and casually than when he was married. I don't know about the significance of the rain to Song and IJ's relationship, but I suspect that it has some association to their relationship in college.  That rain connection is specific to that pair, no one else in the friend group seems to have that connection. 

 

It is significant that even though everyone was concerned about Song doctor's appointment, IJ was the one who made the effort to be by her side as she went through the process.

 

Song and IJ's physicality has become easier/more familiar since his divorce.  He nags her and corrects her. She hits him. He stands closer to her as if being by her side is specifically his place. No one in the friend group have given any indication that they've notice the change.  The one who has noticed it is Chi-Yong. He's now trying to get to the same level of intimacy both physical and conversational that IJ has with Song.  That's why he asked that they converse informally for his birthday. That is also why he touched her shoulder as he was saying goodbye.  It was very similar to the way IJ parted from Song.  Song response to Chi-Yong touch was very apparent.  It seemed to me that it was a "thing" that didn't feel "right".  When IJ touch her in that way it registers as something that belongs/familial.  I could mean that she see IJ in the same way that she see her brothers/familial and no sexual.  Her response to Chi-Yong's touch could signal the beginning of a sexual awareness towards him.  But in each case I doubt that's what's happening.

 

From the first time I saw Song caring for WooJoo, I assumed Song was meant for IJ, especially since I wasn't aware that IJ was "married".  I didn't actually believe the IJ when he first said he was married in the drama.  I think it interesting that Song lumped WooJoo in with her nieces and nephews when she spoke about liking children.  It seems she thinks of WooJoo as family.

 

Kdrama tend to be conservative.  I'm not sure how much time has passed, but I don't think they's want to have IJ get out of a marriage [even if the marriage seemed only real on paper] and start with a new relationship so soon.

 

I love Seok Hyeong.  I'm excited to see how his story plays out.

@Prettysup it was the drawer that AJW kept this rosaries. It’s now empty because he has decided not to pursue priesthood. That’s why KJW had a smile on his face when he saw the empty drawer. 
 

Earlier in the episode, when Ikjun was in their office, he took candy from KJW’s drawer and then he went over to AJW’s desk, opened the drawer. That’s when the catholic music was played and then he did a funny band gesture as he closed the drawer, I’m guessing to show that it was “holy/sacred.” 

 

Oic, thanks !

I also believe that they were dating or, at least, they both knew they liked each other. I am sure Song Hwa was hurt when Ik Jun did not show up at her brithday "party", cooling off the romantic relationship. I don`t think she knew about the ring (how much Ik Jun liked her) but I am curious if Ik Jun told her why they broke up. I believe she did not know. Maybe she had to repress her feelings, thinking he doesn`t like me the way I thought or he prefers to keep only the friendship.

 

I would not want to see a "love triangle" in this drama. I like both Ik Jung and Ahn but whatever Song Hwa will decide it is fine by me. I want Ik Jun to have another chance.

Have Koreans discarded the superstition that if you give someone you love shoes, they'll run away?

 

I couldn't figure out what to make of SongHwa giving Chi-Yong shoes.

 

I also wanted to say,  not becoming a priest isn't giving up on God, or else most Catholic would have forsaken God.

 

At least in the West, not becoming a priest doesn't require giving up your Rosaries.  

 

All I can say is JWon's father must have been a committed Catholic to have 5 children who wanted to make service to God their vocation. I suspect it is the father, because Rosa doesn't come off as a dedicated Catholic.  It hard to know what a dedicated Catholic would look like.

 

People's health: Everyone is worried about JWon's headaches, Song's herniated disc, but the NetFlix translation of SH made it sound like he did have long to live.  I don't speak Korean, so . . .  I can't tell if it is the script or Netflix.

 

"I don't want to waste time. My time is too precious for that. I want to live doing the things I like and the things I want to do right now. That's why I wanted to start a band. I used you guys."  That's the speech they usually give to the hero whose dying young.  

I'm just going to make up random crap.

SH came back to Korea to die and have a band with his friend.

He divorced because he was dying and didn't want to be a burden to his wife.

His wife loves him. 

He's keeping himself away from people because he doesn't want the burden of having more friends to leave behind.

If he is sick and thinks he's dying he must be sick and dying because as a doctor with family money he would have been able to seek out the best cure.

We don't see enough of him from the past to know if this perpetual sadness is new or just his neurological setting.

OR

He's as healthy as a healthy horse

His ex-wife is back because she knows of the inheritance

I'm quite confused by why they chose to show these particular set of flashbacks. This is the scene we were all waiting for. The moment of truth. Whether he is staying or leaving is what we wanted to know. And we instantly know that he is staying when he kissed her. So the flashbacks should be more of why he chose to stay, right? I get why they showed the ER scene and him discussing his decision to stay with Songhwa. But why did they add their first meeting and how she fell in love with him at first sight...don't tell me....unless he also fell in love with her at first sight? I don't think thats the case. I mean it's a really cute scene with baby Gyeo ul having milk stache and everything, plus who wouldn't fall in love with that handsome face? I totally get Gyeo ul. My only question is why did they add that when we were intently waiting for Jeong won's pov. It could have been shown then and there when Ikjun asked her first. Why hide it like it's some big secret and reveal it at the end? LOL. I'm trying to understand the writer's thought process here. Haha.

me too..i am puzzled now that i notice those flashbacks are more into Jwon' background/reasons

when the initial question was when GW fell for Jwon

And like you said, i thought too if JWon fell for GW the moment he saw her in the GS meeting room

with her milk stache..perhaps he found it too cute like little kids

But that's bit overstrecth

So i don't know...i hope the writer & PD will explain in the special eps next week

or put some scene for Jwon's POV in the 2nd season

 We`ll see what really happened. What I suspect about them (I already mentioned about it) doesn`t contradict what IK Jun said. They were never really an open couple. They liked each other and probably dating in secret for a while. We all see that Ik Jun had serious/ strong feelings for Song Hwa and he never had the oportunity to confess. Or maybe they were not yet a couple but Ik Jun wanted to asked her to became a couple at her birthday. It doesn`t matter if thew were or not a  couple, but they definitely had romantic feelings for each other and they knew it.  I understand Ik Jun being the good friend (He thought about Seok-Hyeong `s feelings. He knew that probably their friendship would have been deteriorated because they were in love with the same woman.) but I believe he decided one-sided about the relationship with Song Hwa. And I think Song Hwa was disappointed and hurt (first love wouldn`t materialize). They both remain friends and repress their feelings. They care and love each other as friends but the question is if still there is romantic feelings left. As we saw, Ik Jun still has those feelings. Of course, he would have regreted the rest of his life if he would not confess now. Good for him. Even if she will not accept to rekindle their old romance, he/they can move on.

If Song Hwa will have these lingering feelings left or new romantic feelings she will agree to became a romantic couple with Ik Jun. They know each other very well by now. She will know if they will be compatible or not. If not accept Ik Jun`s love confession , it will be a little awkard at first but they can be friends.

Spoiler

 

Hi @hushhh I think Songhwa gave Chihong shoes to tell him, it's time for him to leave her side.

 

Also, I really enjoyed reading everyone’s posts, thank you all for sharing such wonderful insights and astute observations of all the lovelines. I’d just like to add some of my thoughts, which I think haven’t been mentioned before.

 

 

 

I think the scene where Gyeoul removed maggots from the homeless man’s rotting leg was significant in many ways. As many have pointed out, the writer had set up the scenarios to show the contrast between Gyeoul and Dr Bae’s actions. Dr Bae knew how to comfort the guardians, while Gyeoul’s words were blunt and tactless. However, while Gyeoul went about removing the maggots without a word, Dr Bae was unable to do anything.

  • Dr Bae is a fellow in the ER dept. In the course of her work, she must have come across all sorts of emergency patients. And yet, she couldn’t bring herself to touch the maggots.
  • As doctors, actions speak louder than words. Compared to knowing how to say the right words, it’s far more important to be able to do the right things.
  • Also, being tactful is something which comes with experience and can be learned, as we have seen through Gyeoul and Junwan.

 

 

Another POV which I think has been overlooked is that of the patient’s. He was homeless, hadn’t showered for months and his leg was covered with maggots. He was probably shunned by everyone – even the medics and doctors didn’t want to come near him. Gyeoul was the only person who treated him with dignity and equally, as she would’ve treated any other patient.

 

As a devout Catholic and a practising doctor, seeing Gyeoul’s actions probably reminded him of someone: Mother Teresa. Her actions aligned with his values. He became Daddy-Long-Legs because he believed that everyone – rich or poor, local citizen or illegal immigrant – have the right to access medical treatment.

 

 

 

In ep 3, Junwan wondered if Ikjun was having an affair with Gyeoul. Worried, Jeongwon went down to find them and Ikjun asked what Jeongwon thought about Gyeoul. I think this scene is significant because it showed that Jeongwon saw Gyeoul as a woman.

  • Jeongwon himself went for dinner and movies alone with other female colleagues but he didn’t see it as an issue because he saw them as colleagues, not as the opposite gender.
  • Also, Jeongwon knew that Ikjun is a social butterfly, who makes friends easily with people from every and any department. Why was it alright for Ikjun to be close to everyone else, except Gyeoul?
  • So, when Ikjun asked him what he thought of Gyeoul, he wasn’t thinking about her as a doctor or colleague, but as a woman.

Personally, I don’t think Jeongwon’s answer matters, because if he had any feelings, he would’ve most likely denied them. But the fact is, from the start, Gyeoul was more than just a colleague and fellow doctor.

 

 

 

My brain is a little fried.  But I remember IJ saying to a doctor [can't remember which one] in one of the last 2 episodes that you can't save patients by being nice to them. 

 

 

"We`ll see what really happened. What I suspect about them (I already mentioned about it) doesn`t contradict what IK Jun said. They were never really an open couple. They liked each other and probably dating in secret for a while. We all see that Ik Jun had serious/ strong feelings for Song Hwa and he never had the oportunity to confess. Or maybe they were not yet a couple but Ik Jun wanted to asked her to became a couple at her birthday. It doesn`t matter if thew were or not a  couple, but they definitely had romantic feelings for each other and they knew it.  I understand Ik Jun being the good friend (He thought about Seok-Hyeong `s feelings.

She will know if they will be compatible or not. If not accept Ik Jun`s love confession , it will be a little awkard at first but they can be friends."

I'm quite confused by why they chose to show these particular set of flashbacks. This is the scene we were all waiting for. The moment of truth. Whether he is staying or leaving is what we wanted to know. And we instantly know that he is staying when he kissed her. So the flashbacks should be more of why he chose to stay, right? I get why they showed the ER scene and him discussing his decision to stay with Songhwa. But why did they add their first meeting and how she fell in love with him at first sight...don't tell me....unless he also fell in love with her at first sight? I don't think thats the case. I mean it's a really cute scene with baby Gyeo ul having milk stache and everything, plus who wouldn't fall in love with that handsome face? I totally get Gyeo ul. My only question is why did they add that when we were intently waiting for Jeong won's pov. It could have been shown then and there when Ikjun asked her first. Why hide it like it's some big secret and reveal it at the end? LOL. I'm trying to understand the writer's thought process here. Haha. 

 

This is also my question but for me its main purpose is for the smooth flow of the story. The scene of Gyeoul and IkJun dialogue which ended in a question was placed at the first scene of episode 12. It allowed my mind to take off from the last scene of  episode 11 and a re-setting or re-establishment of this "conflict" in this episode. This needs to be set up because this "conflict" will be resolved in THIS episode*. It should be left "hanging" because of the huge waiting time. In fact, it actually signals the start of our waiting time. So the first scene adds up to that continuity and build-up. Without the connection of the first scene and the "confession scene", the latter will or might feel disconnected because it will need to take off from ep 11 - which is way too far. This connection also signals that this "conflict" has ended. You cannot put that flashback scene anywhere but there or the "confession scene" may be muted a little bit.**

 

Just my analysis. I tend to go on the scriptwriting and film editing part. I really wish that there are interviews of the director and writer on their thought process of writing and editing.

 

Notes:

* A"very simple" question which has little value to the story will not be put at the start only to be answered next season. It would be a waste of a scene since we already know that Gyeoul likes Jeongwon and no one is really asking why. Haha. There were a lot of "hanging" or "open" conflicts established in this episode but those questions needs more than one episode to be resolved. This scene is different.

** Imagine if you put that "love-at-first-sight" scene immediately after Gyeoul-IkJun scene, that scene can stand alone and you can remove it from the whole episode and the episode will still hold - and the "confession scene", as I said,  kinda bit disconnected from all the other scenes.
