thought the tiktok voting is only for the popularity awards of the actor and actress?

 

I think there is no voting from the general public for the acting and various category.

 

I knew Kim Dami is the biggest obstacle to Jeon Mido's chances.

Yes, voting for general public was just on popularity wise, and JJS& JMD were also nominated . Cloy couple got the most votes.

By abbyinhallyuland | June 3, 2020
 

IT’S AMAZING HOW HOSPITAL PLAYLIST KEPT ITS CADENCE ENGAGING EPISODE AFTER EPISODE!

Without concrete conflict, the narrative of five friends who nurtured their bond through the years enlivens with familiarity. Especially for people, who have close friendship forged by time and love.

Hospital Playlist

Adding to the bucket of gem dramas Director Shin Won Ho and writer Lee Woo Jung have, Hospital Playlist is a serene treat perfect for career people needing to unwind.

 

Its smart storytelling reverberates the sound awareness of its creative team to bring a real story about a relationship as pure as romantic ones, but shared by friendship bond.


QUICK PLOT ROUNDUP

Hospital Playlist explores the amazing bond among five friends who have stayed close with each other since attending medical school together 20 years ago. They can practically read each other’s mind and know each other like the back of their hands.

 

At their 40’s life begins for each of them. With careers as doctors, the pragmatic lives of people living, dying and just passing by in the hospital will be narrated in their different perspectives.

 


HIGHLIGHTS

HEARTWARMING FRIENDSHIP PICTURE

We could not ask for more of what the diligent cast showcased in the series. Hats off to Jo Jung Suk, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jung Kyung Ho, Kim Dae Myung and Jeon Mi Do for decorating a well-contrived friendship story.

 

Just as the narrative is free spirited and feel good, the five friends cleave to the same tone, like it is specifically made for them. That being said, the chemistry of the lead actors is worth praising. They did not verbalize every emotion, but viewers feel their familiarity like real-life friends on screen.

 

In particular, the short anecdotes of their friendship when they were young are a delightful watch. It supports the apparent bond they shared as reflected in their eating, drinking and music sessions.

INDIVIDUAL LEAD CHARACTER’S MOMENTS

JEON MI DO AS SONGHWA

Often, female viewers get envious with the female lead for the romantic relationship with the male lead, Chae Song Hwa elicits the same. Having four reliable friends who got her back, who cares if she does not secure a romantic love.

 

Her presence in the group binds and seals the core of their pact. She pictures a woman on top of her career, but does not lose her focus to enjoy life by engaging to her personal hobbies.

 JO JUNG SUK AS LEE IK JOON

Pouring his zesty spirit, Lee Ik Joon truly is the life of the party in Yulje Medical Center. If Songhwa is the heart, then Ik Joon is the soul of the team. Hesitating to extend his shoulder is not in his vocabulary. He could be playful, but he knows when his comfort and insights are needed by his friends and family.

YOO YEON SEOK AS AHN JUNG WON

Utterly kind, deeply sympathizing to Jung Won’s mom is expected. An epitome of one-man-Salvation-Army, he is also the perfect poster boy for the kind of husband to score owing to his gentle nature.

KIM DAE MYUNG AS YANG SEOK HYUNG

Changing the stigma about “mama’s boy”, Dae Myung is the mastermind of strengthening their bond thru music. He is the perfect picture of the quiet guy in the friendship circle who has the biggest love for the group.

JUNG KYUNG HO AS KIM JOON HWAN

The resident playboy and “cool guy” of the bunch is seemingly inflexible when in truth he is caring. He is almost the perfect representation of an “ideal boyfriend” who supports his woman with enrichment endeavors.

BAND SESSIONS & SOOTHING MUSIC

Healing through music and practical life lessons, Hospital Playlist features earworm soundtracks. Since the lyrics also appear in the band session scenes, the meaning of the songs rightfully fit the pictures highlighted.The band session scenes affirm how regularly doing bonding moments with your friends is necessary and possible no matter how busy you are.

 

Spoiler

 

REMARKABLE SUPPORTING LEADS

The supporting actors who appeared as staff members of Yulje Medical Center are equally memorable in their respective roles. Choo Min Ha (Ahn Eun Jin) has begun her conquest to win Seok Hyung’s heart. Whether her determination will be favored, we can hope for the best that she can thaw his love apprehensions.

 

Confronting his feelings toward Song Hwa, Ahn Chi Hong (Kim Jun Han) failed to have his feelings reciprocated. But, he did not dwell on the rejection.

 

As Joon Hwan’s love interest, Ik Soon (Kwak Sun Young) embodies the perfect woman who successfully tamed the uptight surgeon who used to serial date. The rest of the actors who played as hospital staff members contributed nuanced portrayals no matter how small their parts are. Of course, we won’t miss the adorable Woo Joo (Kim Joon), who captured his on-screen’s dad Ik Joon’s charm like he is really his son.

 

Likewise, the small appearances from patients treated in the series draw lingering impressions of hope and gratitude. A few scenes put the viewer on a weep fest, but the tears are the kind that make you feel good. Especially since there are patient stories that ran from the beginning to the end of the series.

 

Old characters in medical drama have been infamous for portraying hateful villains. The seasoned actors invited in Hospital Playlist adorably veer away from that notion.

 

Endearing for her quest to keep her son stay as surgeon, Jung Rosa (Kim Hae Sook) has also induced drama fans to uphold her wish. Her friendly interaction with Joo Jong Soo (Kim Gab Soo) mirrors the same friendship vibe from the five friends. A preview of what they could be in their old age.

GYEO WOOL’S UNREQUITED LOVE

Shin Hyun Bin as Jang Gyeo Wool did a superb job for her role. She encouraged all those with one-sided love affair to not give up when their intentions are pure and genuine. Her heartfelt confession to Jung Hwan to stay by her side instead of committing his life to God probably propelled support banners from fans watching the finale episode. Because, who wouldn’t support her to claim the love she deserved? Without question, the one and only hardworking resident of General Surgery warrants a happy ending.

 

Spoiler

 

 

DO JAE HAK’S PICTURE OF PERSEVERANCE

Portraying the role of diligent chief resident, Jung Moon Sung made a few standout comic and emotional moments. That particular scene when he confessed he had to beg the patient to do an urgent procedure taking Jun Hwan’s instruction to use his IQ, EQ, vocabulary and superpower to save the patient loops in the mind.

 

The scene of him getting a thank you note from the patient for not giving up on him generates a profound message about doctor’s fulfillment in the course they take.

ADORABLE CAMEOS

Seeing the familiar faces from the production team’s old drama characters brings smile to fans of the creative tandem. Characters from Reply series and Prison Playbook made a quick but striking stop to bring additional zest to the series.

HEARTENING MESSAGES ON LIFE AND LOVE

Hospital Playlist is a treasure trove of inspiring messages. Albeit focusing on adults in 40-ish, youth can also learn a lot from the series.

ON MARRIAGE FALLOUT

“I got divorced because my wife cheated on me. I worked at the hospital all day and looked after my son alone. I really lived hard but she had an affair with her friend’s husband.

 

At first, it hurt my pride and I was embarrassed to meet people. I wondered why my life was getting so difficult. It was really tough. But all of a sudden one day, I realized how much time I was wasting.

 

Wasting away my life like that because of what she did to me was being unkind to myself.”

 

– Lee Ik Joon (Jo Jung Suk) – Episode 7

ON DEFINING HAPPINESS

“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.”

 

– Yang Suk Hyung (Kim Dae Myung) – Episode 12

ON CAREER COMMITMENT

“Do you know why doctors only give vague answers such as ‘We can’t be sure yet,’ ‘We don’t know yet,’ and ‘We need to observe a but more’.

 

Doctors must take responsibility for their words. So we must be careful with our words. There’s only one thing we, doctors, can tell our patients with certainty. ‘We will do our best.'”

 

Ahn Jung Hwan – Episode 2

 

“I did it. I begged him. I kneeled and begged. I racked my brain, but I couldn’t think of anything else. So I kneeled in front of him and begged.

 

I begged him to get an enema so I don’t get fired.”

 

Do Jae Hak (Jung Moon Sung) – Episode 10

 


HOSPITAL PLAYLIST SERIES AFTERTHOUGHTS

Hospital Playlist evokes warmth that easily finds the viewer’s heart. Hitting all the rules of a deftly limned healing story, it convincingly demonstrates that in lieu of circling agonizing conflicts, a familiar story that everyone can relate to would suffice.

 

Stories that fascinate without yielding negative elements is deemed remarkable. After all, it is hard to capture the narrative’s emotion without relying on a conflict.

 

It’s amazing how the series laid its foundation without having to worry about the problems to be resolved. It just happily created a storytelling that inspires and heartens.

 

Admirably, the series sealed its exquisite storytelling with a finale episode that resolved the main leads’ personal predicaments. It also hints on what to expect in the next season as some problems need a second chapter to have a clearer picture.

 

Flaunting an array of sweet subplots, the love stories painted in the series take a pragmatic route, but spirals to endearing bliss nonetheless.

 


RECOMMENDATION

Hospital Playlist is a kind of drama that you watch on a weekend to relive work stress for the whole week. Therapeutic and smartly-written, it leaves a lingering positive imprint after every episode dose you take.

 

Notably, you can watch it on binge and get a fulfilling time. Or you can watch it per episode and you get the same without losing your track in the story.

 

Definitely one of the best Korean dramas that aired this season. Its story and character portrayals are polished without being predictable.

I hope Jeon Mi Do wins best new actress in this year's Baeksang! Da Mi is surely her greatest rival in this award. I did love her in IC. But I really admired JMD's acting skills in HP. I empathized with her character. So hopefully our Dr. SongHwa wins.

 

And I only knew now that HP is nominated for Best Screenplay. Am not really sure the meat of the award. It's gonna be a toss up between HP and CLOY I think. I love both dramas too. Huhu. But my bias in this would be HP.

Omg thank you for this!!!!!!

I immediately jumped to conclusions from the subs even though something did seem off about it haha

Hope they improve the subs in the future because the inaccuracies were often mentioned by posters earlier

And you're right, it makes sense for the GS professors to treat her instead of the other way around hehe

@winnerrrrrrrr444

I am not sure if anyone answer your question yet but chingu I believe GU is from an ordinary family because in episode 10 when IJ ask her what s going on ,is her boyfriend rich  or a car dealer ?

GU answered is the other way  around .

I think that means her brother is not rich .Maybe I am wrong but to me common sense says that siblings have the same background .

I am sure we ll have some answers in S2.

More should be revealed in S2. Several POV is still missing or needed to be add on for further understanding 

 

Eg: Songhwa, Jung Won and even Ik-soon and Ik Joon. 

 

When more is revealed, I hope it will open the eyes of those who are on the stray side. If not, I think they need to quit the drama and stop their abuse of characters created.

 

Each characters had flaws, I do dislike Chihong for actions committed during his romance moments but otherwise as a doctor he is a professional. He was forced into drastic actions when he senses his rival is also moving forward

Hello! I've been a silent reader in this forum since episode 6 but I only decided to create this account just now, the lack of Hospital Playlist makes me do things-. I've always enjoyed reading everyone's opinions and theories about this drama. After Hospital Playlist has ended I've been on a kdrama slump. I just miss the Lacking 5, their residents, U-ju, Mama Rosa, Jung-So-- tbh, I miss everyone lol and also the band performances. (I'm excited for this night's special episode and the live band performance!)

 

P.S. I'm looking forward to season 2 esp how they will introduce SeokHyeong's wife (I believe she's a good person based on SeokHyeong's description in previous episode and she must be a very important person to him judging by the way he answered the phone call). I also look forward to how they will show WinterGarden's relationship, like how awkward can they get during their first date (I like this ship so much since that chocopie scene, it was cute watching Gyeoul have a crush on Jeongwon and it was more beautiful when their feelings was mutual heh). Anyway, it's nice meeting you all :)

Actually IJ didn’t ask if the boyfriend is rich or not. He asked what does her boyfriend do that he could drive different car each time? Is he a car dealer? So GU answered one part is wrong (not boyfriend) one part is right (he is a car dealer). Nothing about economic background.

Mido & Falasol first meeting!! Hope they will give us many of unseen BTS (Winter Garden kiss scene pleasee!) :)

 

Oh God, I cannot concentrate on work due to teaser of Special Episode. :wub:

Unfortunately based on  @dairymilks post, Netflix will not sub the special episode.

Hope there will be kind, generous and beautiful people who will help to sub the episode, even though maybe not full episode but cut scenes of unseen BTS or first meeting or NG Compilation. Wink Wink~

Actually that part confused me. I have no access to netflix so i cant check the korean sub to see the exact words, i'm just guessing here based on what i heard.

 

IJ : 딜러야? 외제차 딜러?
GU : 하나는 맞고 하나는 틀렸어요
IJ : 딜러가 아니라 부자?
GU : 반대요
IJ : 부자가 아니라 딜러?
GU : 그 쪽 말고요
IJ : 딜러는 맞지만 남친이 아니구나

 

IJ : is he a dealer? Imported car dealer?
GU : you got one thing right, one thing wrong
IJ : not a dealer but a rich guy? (hence the changing imported car)
GU : it's the opposite
IJ : not a rich guy but a dealer?
GU : not that part (the wrong and right thing)
IJ : a dealer but not a boyfriend

 

The bold words sound similar in korean, so i might misheard it, but if what he really said is 부자 then it really means wealthy.

******************

 

She mentioned in the ep11 review, someone had saw JJS and JMD filming at Sokcho and this apartment is one of the newest apartment at Sokcho, the person had shared online and this finale episode confirm his claim.

Ik Joon finally confessed and this could be his first, as all of us know his ex-wife woo him in his previous marriage.

He voice out his concern and ask for suggestion from her in a calm and careful manner, he used this manner as his love/feeling for her is deep. He does not wanna lose her as a friend and giving her pressure.

 

So how does she feel, the reviewer also mentioned there were some clues to how she felt. At the scene when Ik Joon, Songhwa and Seok Hyeong are having dinner together, there were 2 books on the bookshelf which are props and not actual books. One is 'White Heart' while the other is 'A Storm in Silence'. She felt that these two books are hinting on how Songhwa felt.

 

Songhwa is a classic model professional, she maintain her interpersonal relationships with others professionally without crossing the line. One example is when Dragon requested her to operate on one of the patients in the earlier episode as he need it for the completion of his thesis, Songhwa reprimanded him after he had crossed the line. Since she is strict to her students, she is also strict to herself and camping is a method for her to enjoy the freedom. Songhwa could be more rigid in her 20s, during her first encounter with Ik Joon, she might had felt an unfamiliar feeling within her and perhaps it is more of curiosity. After seeing Ik Joon playing 'Canon', it open up a new world for Songhwa and maybe Ik Joon is her variation to life.

 

She might have wanna confess to Ik Joon but after the confession of SeokHyeong towards her, she chose to wait instead as maybe she fear that she would encounter the same situation as well. However we all know, Ik Joon did not take action during that time and had a girlfriend subsequently. So Songhwa had to try her best to avoid crossing the line while facing him. The reviewer mentioned in SOnghwa's character bio, Songhwa gave her 20s to first love and subsequently might have forgotten about it. As time passes, they worked in different hospitals and busy with their own lifes and career, Ik Joon steps into her life again in 2019 thru working in the same hospital and forming a band again. However they maintain a distance and did not make any attempt to cross the line until Ik Joon got divorced, even as Ik Joon act normally in front of them and Songhwa pretending not to be concern, but in her heart, she does care for him and if he is really all right. As she slowly care and assist Ik Joon, as the interaction between them increases, the line between them also becoming indistinct. 

 

So when it really caught her in surprise when Ik Joon confess in the finale, but she did not reject him or stop him immediately as in the situation with SeokHyeong and Chihong. Therefore, 'White Heart' could be her feeling before the confession and 'A Storm in Silence' is her feeling after Ik Joon's confession. Another clue to show that there might be a slight movement in her inner heart is a wind slightly blown across her face after Ik Joon confess to her, this same situation appeared when Ik Joon ask if Jung Won liked Winter as well.

 

The reviewer is buying stocks on Ik Song as love is all about timing, she mentioned about Chihong missing the timing at several situation. Went drinking with Dragon on his first lead surgery and how the umbrella lost its purpose after Ik Joon picked Songhwa up after the emergency surgery. The reviewer also mentioned Chihong could be someone Songhwa might liked if she is in her 20s but now the timing is just not right. Chihong also liked Songhwa on his first day and he worked hard to enter to NS but the appearance of Ik Joon disrupt his plan and make him nervous over the situation and begun to cross the line unknowingly. 

 

As for Ik Joon, his appearance always seen to be at the right time.

in ep1, appearing in ER when they need someone to perform the liver transplant operation

in ep2, Ik Joon arrive at the entrance to ask Songhwa if she wanna have a meal together after one tiring day

in ep6, Ik Joon appearing at the clinic to accompany her

in ep10, when Jung Won passed the portfolio of Long Legs to her, the largest contributor to the funds is also Ik Joon

Perhaps when the two of them met on the first day during their university interview, when he pass the thing for her to tie her hair, it is fated for him to appear at the right time to assist and help her. It is also interesting to noted that when Ik Joon need some sort of assistance, Songhwa is the one who help him. For example, his darth vadar helmet incident, he chose to visit Yulje to get it sort out and when U-ju need a guardian other than the nanny, Songhwa is also the one who will help him. Of course, those on stray path will argue oh it is because she is the only female friend they got.... *roll eyes* :rolleyes:

 

The reviewer also mentioned about the BGM used. At Ik Joon's confession, 'I Knew I Love' was played while the BGM played when Chihong received Songhwa's parcel was 'That I was Once by Your Side'. In Season 2, maybe we could anticipate how Songhwa slowly realised her true feeling towards Ik Joon.

 

One more interesting thing to note, in the scene where Ik Joon is learning Spanish languages, several books were shown on his desk, beside the Spanish and sign languages, there were books on sommelier, how to use unmanned aircraft, furniture design and woodwork and lastly how to drive a small boat. 

 

Seem like Ik Joon is preparing to join Songhwa for her camping (enjoy wine together, design small wooden furniture for her and using of unmanned aircraft at campsite?) and perhaps drive her out on a small boat. I understand that Sokcho has a Lake Park where people could rent boats if they have the license. Maybe we shall see these in season 2. :lol:

 

******************

Before 1:14 minutes mark are her thoughts and summary on the drama, so not gonna translate

 

**************

 

As we know, it is love at first sight for Gyeo-ul and in the scene when she first met Jung Won, there is a bear with heart on the bookshelf at the background and Jung Won happened to be wearing what Gyeo-ul would wear during summer and autumn. White tee shirt and denim shirt.

 

After Jung Won reprimanded her and said that beside medical skills, a doctor must have a compassionate heart as well. This further increase her admiration for him and professionally respect him as a doctor and hope to become a doctor like him. 

 

Being an evergreen, the path for love is not easy. After being rejected for the dinner and being lied to, she chose to give up but she couldn't control herself and is still having crushes on him. There isn't much progress even with the assistance of Ik Joon. Gyeo-ul could only suppress her feeling and do what she need to do as a doctor.

 

Then Rosa arrive as her saviour, she could tell that Jung Won liked her a lot (my opinion: at this point, I believe most viewers would have know Jung Won's expression is the sign of good news or bad news, that why those closest to him know what is going on when reading his expression, if you still have not notice, please re-watch the entire drama again and don't stray away from the direction ;)

Rosa also mentioned to Gyeo-ul that Jung Won planned to leave soon and the reviewer believe this news gave Gyeo-ul a shock. Perhaps this is also why Gyeo-ul will went to his office to ask him to stay, because based on Gyeo-ul's character, she might not have agree to Rosa's request and help her to ask Jung Won to remain and maybe Gyeo-ul would still support Jung Won's decision to leave. 

The reviewer did not expects Gyeo-ul to be deeply in love with Jung Won and there is a sense of imperative feeling and she did seem troubled by the news.

 

When Gyeo-ul tearfully ask Jung Won to stay, this is perhaps the first time her feeling finally waver and she is releasing all of her feeling which she had suppressed within herself. It is not just a nervous confession but also a fear of losing someone who is a hugh emotional support/guidance for her career. 

 

Next the reviewer touch on when and how Jung Won might have feelings towards Gyeo-ul and the changes.

Firstly, Jung Won is someone who is not very vocal and will keep everything to himself and this gave him headaches when he keep all his worries to himself.

Making decision on his choices, the children patients that he can't bear to leave behind, being sorry to his mother and the feeling of Gyeo-ul towards him are some of the things which he kept to himself and troubled him. He still chose not to be vocal about them. However as he is so pure and he is easy to read and he has a group of emotional pillars who knew him well and willing to advise him to lessen his troubles/worries. 

 

Jung Won relationship with Gyeo-ul were 1st build from misunderstanding, Gyeo-ul being herself and directly informing the patient's parent about his condition give Jung Won an impression that she is a cold person and both of them will not be compatible. The sight of her removing maggots from the leg of a homeless changes his mind and actually Gyeo-ul is a responsible doctor and might have felt sorry for the previous misunderstanding. The passing of chocopie and the anger he had after Gyeo-ul chase after the child abuser was perhaps a way to mask his worry of her getting hurt. The decisive moment is when he stop eating after hearing about Gyeo-ul being warded at the ER observation ward after suffering from a serious allergy. He took to the stair instead of taking a lift and ran to the ER. Based on drama timeline, it is August 2019 and perhaps before Aug, he already have feeling for her.

 

So when did he have feeling for her, the reviewer mentioned about the lack of POV from his perspective was perhaps he unknowingly develop feelings for Gyeo-ul and maybe he also could not tell when did he have feeling towards her. He might have only realised he had fallen in love with her at a certain moment and this is a kind of romance which majority will encountered, just suddenly and unknowingly fallen in love with someone. Without telling us when, the drama allows us to focus more on Jung Won's expressions and the changes in him. The PD and writer wanna used his expression and actions taken to see the changes and development in Winter Garden loveline. 

 

For example, when he used banmal to greet Gyeo-ul at the on-call room and usually they do not let resident to lead a pediatric surgery, but Jung Won give Gyeo-ul a chance to lead. This shown the trust he had on her and the relationship between them strengthen.

 

The kiss at Xmas was a full release of everything that Jung Won had kept within himself over times and it is because he had previously suppressed his feeling and avoid crossing the line. Based on the drama timelines, it is about half a year. Despite how he tried to stand behind the line and act coldly, Gyeo-ul's tearful confession, constant apologies, how his decision to leave troubled Gyeo-ul's mind and how he hurt the girl he loved make Jung Won filled with emotions as well. The reviewer also talk about the sigh Jung Won gave before Gyeo-ul's confession was when he realised Gyeo-ul gonna confess to him before he could confess to her. He might had felt sorry and guilty towards Gyeo-ul as he had let her waited too long for a confession.  

 

So how did Songhwa knew about his feeling towards Gyeo-ul? They are closest friends/soulmates, without him informing her, she already knew he had gave up on leaving. As mentioned earlier, those closest to him can read his mind by looking at his expression, so perhaps they might had know about his feeling towards Gyeo-ul. 

 

Songhwa might at first only know that Jung Won cared for Gyeo-ul but after he mentioned he planned to inform someone 1st before informing the rest, she could confirmed that Jung Won had fallen in love with Gyeo-ul. That is why she opened the window and said it is winter and winter is coming. This CP should not have anymore obstacle and the reviewer hope to see that they lived happily in S2.

 

This lady is one of the best reviewer for the drama.

 

Decided to check out her reviews on the finale and post the rough translation of the videos, translation in spoiler as it is too long.

 

Her thoughts, reviews and analysis are very logical. Can't help but to agree with her massively.

 

Her channels has more reviews, feel free to watch them if you understand mandarin.
