[Upcoming Drama 2021] Hospital Playlist/Wise Doctor Life, 슬기로운 의사생활 - Season 2 second half 2021

Recommended Posts

@KDramaFan0828 and @~Always~

 

I agree with the comparisons you make although not necessarily the connection. I had noticed that Hongdo was very much like Jeong-won especially when he was on rotation with JWon and Gyeo-ul in Episode 10. They're both hardcore softies. I personally wouldn't use the language of "soulmates" between Song-hwa and Jeong-won myself as I tend to see them more as siblings and I always have. As far as I was concerned she always seemed to be more of the older sister to his younger brother. They're very comfortable with each other and neither of them seem all that interested in changing that dynamic.

 

If there is anyone I think of Song-hwa's soulmate that would be Jun-wan.

______________________

IMO the problem has always been that certain segments of the fandom assumed that just because Song-hwa was the only female among the Five that she was the centre of a harem. Because of that this has caused a lot of unnecessary grief. It has created a de facto ship rivalry that the showrunners never intended. I feel that even now that Song-hwa's role in this show (at least in S1) hasn't been properly understood. The real irony of the entire situation is that (and perhaps that's deliberate on the part of the writer) is that Song-hwa is positioned as someone aloof from the foibles of romance. She actively and passively distances herself from being thought as an object of romance. She would, to my mind, think very long and hard before rocking the boat as far as the men in her life are concerned. She continually rationalizes her gluttonous behaviour in terms of the fact that she has 3 older brothers. So that suggests to me that she sees the four guys as brothers because she is free to enact her gluttony under their noses. For the most part it seems to work for her and for them. Although the only person that is actively trying to break that arrangement is Ik-jun. 

 

I am no rabid Ik-Song shipper by any imagination but the fact is that Ik-jun is the only one of the four men who is actively trying to cross the line. None of the other guys demonstrate any interest in doing that. They're relatively comfortable with the status quo and they have their own female woes to contend with without trying to drag her into the fray. For them she is their sister figure. Or even the Sage-Mother figure. They go to her for advice. Jun-wan credits her for helping him become more mature. Jeong-won and Seok-hyeong confide in her with their big issues and gets advice. Her role, as she sees it, is to support them not romance them. It's the same with Chi-hong.

 

It seemed to me that the show wanted to move away from making her the central object of romance to be her own person first and foremost. She's 40 and has dated intermittently outside of the group. That should tell us off the bat how she feels about romancing any of the guys.

 

I think now that I was right to feel uncomfortable in Episode 11. After the rewatch, it's clear to me that was the entire point of putting her right in the middle of Chi-hong and Ik-jun. Her discomfiture was exactly the point. She does not see herself as the central object of romance. She wants to be there for her friends and her students as teacher and confidant... but not as a lover.

 

There's also been another assumption that I don't agree with. That Song-hwa is the central female character and the show somehow revolves around her. Firstly, I don't agree that there is a central female character and/or that the show revolves around her. Song-hwa certainly holds a very responsible position in the hospital and is in a position of authority but there are all kinds of female characters in the show that are highlighted particularly in relationship with the various departments, most of whom are great characters. Secondly, it is a slice-of-life medical drama where we catch snippets of activities and interactions in a hospital. Each episode has its own theme to which all the featured moments converge.  For instance, in the show Song-hwa spends far more time with Chi-hong and the rest of her students than she does with her besties. We don't even know what her mum, dad or brothers look like.

Sorry for cutting your post short HAHA I understand what you mean. I've had my reservations in labelling them as soulmates because I'm not exactly familiar as to what that would entail. I guess it was a convenient association as the no-words-needed dynamic (what comes to my mind when I think of soulmates HAHA) between them really stood out to me. But, I completely agree on the brother-sister dynamic where SHwa is the noona. Maybe that's also why I see them in the twins because Yunbok also seems more mature, composed, and responsible than Hongdo.  :lol:

OMG YES!! I always feel the same thing with Song-hwa. Sometimes in a story, when there is only one woman in a group, she most likely would be the center of the romance or her problem generally would be finding the Mr. Right. But for Song-hwa, I don’t feel that kind of vibe. She looks so contented whenever she does her hobbies or job. On the contrary, when it comes to her romance-related scene in present time, all I can see is she seems a bit uncomfortable or confused, at least up until season 1. That's why I don't get all the husband-hunting game revolves around her. Honestly, my iksong heart still supports her with Ik-jun but I don't find it has to be rushed, and I'm quite open with the possibility of her remains single until the end.

My wishful thinking for season 2 is to see whether Song-hwa has a female friend outside the group, or anything that shows her deep relationship with fellow woman.

Actually your comment in bold is what the intent of my words was. Since I just reproduced my note verbatim in agreement with @KDramaFan0828 so I didn't think over how it will be interpreted. What I have in my mind regarding 'soulmates' is perhaps very different from how it's commonly understood. The sibling like relationship is also one such kind in my head. But what soulmate means is a discussion not meant for this forum. :)

 

So I'd rather retract that word from my post lest a certain shipping community misquote my comment in support of their ship. :P

Since I got into the series pretty late I've not caught up with all the previous posts so not sure if the director's interviews have been posted here. I read a few korean news items where the director made certain points (mine in italics)

 

a. The series is 70% medical drama and 30% romance. - So its definitely not a reverse harem, neither is SongHwa the central character.

 

b. He said that he is aware that no doctor is as good as the lacking 5 are shown. But he still made them the way they are - amazing empathetic humans who're attached, involved and feeling towards their patients - because he wishes the people to be like that in reality. - Love the makers for this thought process. 

 

c. About Song Hwa he said that there was no reason to show what she feels in season 1. She had just broken up with a cheating partner, is busy and somewhat content with what she's doing so it would be illogical to show she was interested romantically with anyone. - It can't get any real than this. She's 40 not 20 to be pining for love (I mean one can but it would be so tiring!!) And the girl said so herself in the show.

[PICK] Editors’ Pick – Best & Worst Dramas of the First Half of 2020

 

By Krishkim | Translated by Kim Hoyeun

In the first half of 2020, dramas received two opposite reviews. While dramas like Crash Landing On You, which first premiered at the end of last year, The World of the Married, Hospital Playlist, and Itaewon Class received favorable reactions and recorded high viewership, other works, such as The King: Eternal Monarch and A Piece of Your Mind, showed disappointing results despite their casting of star actors. In the case of Meow, the Secret Boy, it became the first drama that aired on terrestrial TV network to record the dishonorable viewership of 0 percent.

 

Let’s take a look at editors’ best and worst pick. (selection made among all the dramas that premiered since 2020.01.01.)

 

 

 

 

 

Editor Hwang Hong Sun’s Pick – BEST: Hospital Playlist / WORST: Hi Bye, Mama!

Hospital Playlist is the drama that makes people think of people first before the hospital. The chemistry shown by the five main characters was as sympathetic and warm as if we were watching our own friends. Jeon Mi Do, who made her first TV drama debut with the drama, showed such a strong presence that it made me wonder why she didn’t come out earlier. There were some criticisms that such good and warm stories are not realistic, but still, the drama delivered its sincerity with delicate and emotional portrayals.

I have removed the rest which are irrelevant to this drama.

omg this is the part i love and indeed you really know how to explain in a word...this is why i love all the character in HP..because its not only about ‘them’ or certain characters...yet, can i said every character shine on their own their stories even minor characters like fox residents 

and still it not affect the main character...but shin pd mention they been preparing this drama for almost four years..little by little and i think that why even little things was been potray in a good way...this is totally great

Sorry to cut your post. I have the same idea but dont know how to express it. Totally love your points. 

There's totally comfort and understanding between Song Hwa and Jun Wan, the vibe of them like soul-mate shows from the start episodes. There kind of conversations and actions together I can feel the strong relationship and understanding. Given if it is Jeong Won or Seok Hyung seeing Dr Jang in the elevator with another girls, are they gonna do the same as Jun Wan, confront Dr Jang for her??

Thus SHwa shows her free soul in front of JWan, they are eating couple.

 

Chi-hong remind me of Chilbong. There will always be an one-side love between them. Not just because she reject him twice and firmly, she has someone in her heart and no room for him. 

I said before, I don't think Song Hwa has a thing on Ik-Jun, I just cannot feel it. In ep3, when JunWan tell Song Hwa "There're must be something wrong with Ik-Jun, he look not very well" and ask her to check on him. She said "He will be OK on this own", ignored and went find Chi-hong.

i think because the writer want to how that both characters know their limits during theirs status..as at the times ik jun still a married man..

.

and we can see song hwa and ik jun became close again after his divorce and statt to eat together lots times...means they all not only respect each others bit respect each others status too..their relationship such a realistic ways...that why song hwa ex who mention between both men and woman can they be friend??? and jung wan mention how that an excuse and old think...cause jung wan know his limits

.

i think fab 5 just get close again recently, i means they all close but watching their dialogue show thay after ik jun and seok hyung get married they all get meet leser and that times they all have not start the band...ik jun then busier being single dad while his ex were futher career in other place while seok hyung do his fellowship in uk/us...

.

so that what their kalgasu dinner compare to recent dinner is had different felt...and i thing song hwa know jeong won is sons of yulje president but here agains we learn about respect..song hwa and seok hyung respect his decision to hide the fact or rather not inform the matter to his friend...

I agree with fellow Chingu-deul here that their bond is really special which makes it so much more believable that they easily share secrets with each other. Just as how SHwa knew about Gyeoul, Jwon most likely has an idea about the mystery of SHwa’s past :lol: 

 

@KDramaFan0828 I told you I had also felt something similar. While re-watching there are some things that get connected to what happens in later episodes. 

 

I can’t help but think that how Ik Jun and Song Hwa are the ones that realized or knew that Jeong Won had feelings for Gyeo Ul, similarly Jeong Won is the one who knew about Song Hwa’s feelings towards Ik Jun in the past. In Ep 2 during Chairman Ju’s wife’s funeral when asked about past dalliances, Jun Wan said “Oh, that (romance)? Then Jun Wan gave a probing glance to Jeong Won who immediately looked at Song Hwa. And Song Hwa avoided Jeong Won’s eyes and looked at Ik Jun. I’m certain this scene must have been discussed previously here so I won’t dissect it further.

 

In retrospect why Jeong Won looking at Song Hwa may be meaningful and indicate he was aware of her feelings is because of what has been shown in Ep 4 during the Lacking 5’s band formation scene. Song Hwa’s admiring eyes towards Ik Jun are in focus when he starts playing the guitar. In the background are an irritated Jun Wan and a smiling Jeong Won who eyes move towards Song Hwa. Here’s a GIF I painstakingly made to show fellow forum members. (My apologies if the Gif' heavy. It took me forever even to figure how to make a GIF and compress it to this size)

 

source.gif

 

His glance towards Song Hwa is very brief and it fades into the next cut of various band rehearsals and in 3 of these Ik Jun is giving Song Hwa guitar lessons. Also in all these 3 shots Jeong Won is in the background practicing. So if Jeong Won really is as perceptive as he’s said to be in the series and that glance in the GIF carries some meaning then he has to know what was going on at least from Song Hwa’s side. 

 

I intend to post a slightly detailed version in the Ik Song shipper’s thread because I don’t want to shift this thread’s focus towards a particular pairing.

 

I never thought I’d ever ship couples - fictional or otherwise. But here we are. Then so be it.

 

PS @40somethingahjumma it took me over an hour to figure out how to post a Gif here :P, so totally missed your previous post. Will respond after I recoup some energy.

Will gladly discuss your thoughts further in the thread so post away! :lol:

 

@40somethingahjumma I agree that choosing friendship over anything else was a conscious choice for both IJ and SHwa. I believe neither of them was hopelessly waiting for the other in the last 20 years. As an IkSong shipper, I've also accepted that it would take some time for them to end up together. Quite possible that they're the last, or might not even happen at all (of course, I'm hoping against the latter). And I agree that it has something to do with the 5's dynamics where SHwa serves as the emotional pillar of the other 4. You've mentioned that the other 3 men must first settle their own lovelines before IkSong even happens and I think there's a good possibility that that would be the case. We know that Jwon and Jwan are already on their way to strengthening their relationships with their respective partners but SH is far from even thinking that he deserves a shot at love. As I've mentioned in the shipper thread just a while ago, sometimes I think SH, more specifically his situation, may again be the reason for IJ and SHwa to think twice about their relationship. But this time, the reason is outside of romance. Out of all the men, SH is the most in need of an emotional pillar. In both the first and last episodes of season 1, we've seen significant conversations where SHwa provides comfort to SH. On the other hand, IJ shows just as much concern for SH's happiness. So it makes sense to me that IJ and SH won't get together until SH finds peace in his situation or finds his own solace in someone special (I'm looking at you Minha! :lol:)

One of the things I'm really looking forward to is for Seok-hyeong to meet up with his ex. (It's why I don't think a one year jump makes sense at all) It is really the key to understanding why he is so reluctant to get involved with Min-ha for me. I want to know what kind of woman she is and why they really divorced after 1 year of marriage. For the entirety of S1 we saw him struggling with his toxic dysfunctional family dynamics and it is the reason that he gives to Ik-jun for staying single. For the record I don't believe he likes being single. It's the sort of thing a person tells themselves to convince themselves of something they don't quite believe in. Having the four friends is good but as IJ says to him, he needs more in his life to enrich and comfort him. It's seems (to me at least) more the case that it is a fate that he has resigned himself to because despite his father's death, he is trapped in the past. (I suppose there's still the Ms Kim, the mistress and her baby to contend with)

 

He really does need to live up to what he says at the Christmas Eve gathering that he doesn't want to waste time. He wants to live his to the fullest doing things he enjoys. So why doesn't he? If he wasn't partial to Min-ha I'd believe him when he says he likes being by himself but that's certainly not the case. All of his body language suggests that he really does like her. She obviously thinks so as well which is why she keeps trying to get him to have meals with her. I am of the belief that Min-ha is a different beast from his ex. She may have a resilience and stamina that Shin-hye may not have had. From what I recall their marriage was an arranged one so Shin-hye might not have had much of a say in it. There could have other reasons for the break up outside of the upheavals in the Yang family. Presumably her family is a wealthy one too and they didn't want to get embroiled in that family's issues.  It might be different for Min-ha who isn't from a wealthy family who is might be made of tougher stuff as we saw in Episode 8. Anyway, this is her choice as much as it is his. She might be up to the challenge and keen for it.

 

In hindsight the band was a good idea. It was a great refuge for the Flawed Five at various times when certain ones were dealing with unconfessed feelings and other relationship issues. But Seok-hyeong can't use it as a crutch for staying within his comfort zone. To a large extent the show is about people being nudged out of their comfort zone in order to achieve their potential. I'm sure it's no different for Seok-hyeong. He can't hibernate forever.

 

I'm sure I'm not the first to say this but it is interesting that the chaebol boys seem to be the ones that need to be confessed to for one reason or another while the boys from the regions understand the notion of "carpe diem". It's that age old, glorious tension of "life happens to you" vs "you take control of your own fate" and go for it. I think though that Jeong-won does understand after being confessed to by Gyeo-ul that yes, life does happen without your permission but it's no reason to feel victimized. And perhaps the kiss is also an indication of him finally manning up and seizing the moment.

@40somethingahjumma I agree with your observation on why Ik Jun and Song Hwa chose to not act on their feelings in the past in consideration of the 5’s friendship.

 

@Sorary spoke about the 5 getting closer again. 

 

About their current dynamic I’d add that while it was evident at the start of the show that the friends were in touch with each other but perhaps not that they hung out together often. Also Song Hwa, Jeong Won and Jun Wan all have different hobbies so the opportunities to meet over mutual interests are limited. Not to mention that Ik Jun with a child would have limited time to do what he wanted to do with friends or otherwise. So, as you also said, in the present they are more of each other’s support system in times of need than people who hang out regularly like when they were younger. That is the dynamic between them – family like friends.

 

Given this dynamic the characters’ actions and motivations is reflective of the group dynamics and their inner feelings.

 

Having said that there is something else I wanted to say regarding some discussions on this thread about the love lines. As I’ve said earlier I watched episodes 1 – 10 in the week leading to the finale and I was completely unaware of the various ships. The binge watching afforded me the advantage of not waiting for subsequent episodes and in turn not getting the time to process my preferences into couple ships and building expectations. In fact I was under the impression that all of them would have lovers from outside of the group. But come Ep 4 and we were shown Song Hwa’s shenanigans to join the band and her admiring glance towards Ik Jun. As much as this was a surprise from the makers, I have to admit that I was also completely shocked by the romantic linking of Jeong Won and Song Hwa by some people here in the forum.

 

So I can only conclude regarding the differing interpretations by various shippers that we see what we want to see. A certain preference always veils our interpretation to varying degrees.

 

Having said that one also has to be mindful of what the makers are trying to do with their presentation. I agree the Reply and Wise Life series’ makers have a distinct style of putting across stories woven around their (makers’) values and outlook towards life. Also let’s not forget their fondness of tricking viewers and making us think that we know what’s happening. But it’s not exactly cookie cutter style where we can replace the names of characters and we get the end result or the ‘endgame’. That would be a disservice to the creativity of the makers as it means viewers are not taking in the sub text of the love lines in Hospital Playlist (which by the way is not rocket science or hard to grasp by most people). Yes there are clues and easter eggs but most of them are pretty straightforward. The makers are not in any way trying to obscure what they want to convey regarding the couples under metaphorical clues which only people who’ve watched the Reply series would understand.

 

I hope I haven’t ruffled any feathers by what I wrote but that’s my understanding of this series. Or as Rosa said to Chairman Ju, did I just throw a rock in calm waters?? :wink:

Why didnt anyone ask about Season 2 concept on the Hospital Playlist in the last live session? I was sleeping at the time :wut:.. I hope it will be not major flashback story or like it sets during med school. If you watched Lets Eat 3, the major story was set in the college era. I hope it wasnt like that tho. Because I want more Winter and Bear doctors in the season 2

 

He said fast-paced. But what I want to know whether he will serve us more of couple updates!! Huhuhuhu.. more screen time to our support role actor/actress - Eunjin, Hyun Been and Chi Hong!

Finally, they have added the English Subtitle:

 

 

After understanding the full conversation, I get a vibe that Shin PD is similar with Jeongwon/Seokhyung and Na PD is Ikjun! :lol:

First special cut released by Shin PD. Jeon Mi Do audition clips (first and second audition)

 

 

Summary of the video:

- In her first audition (April 2 2019) she was asked about her basic informations: She mostly works in musical and theater but modestly say she's not as famous as Cha Ji Yeon (another musical actress who has appeared in TV) or like Ock Joo Hyun (Shin PD mentioned the actress name, who is also a popular musical actress and a member of popular girl group FIN.K.L) ;  whether she plays any musical instruments (She learn to play piano for her performance in musical 'Once' and she only play the songs that were performed at the musical. She never learnt to play it before); she almost never appear in TV (she said it's because her schedule didn't match and she did a lot of theater or musical performance. She appeared for a short cameo in drama 'Mother' and in a movie. She thinks she didn't want to mix or clash between her work in theater or musical with her appearance in TV. She deliberately didn't take any work in 2019, because she thought she wanted to rest, but then she participated in the audition and she'd be glad to join if she got accepted); where her hometown is (She is from Busan and can speak the dialect); she moves to Seoul when she admitted to the university. Then she audition with scripts with dialect and short lines of Song Hwa role in the first episode (her meeting with SH in his basement and the light gone out). My opinion: She was so stable and really sound like a doctor while reading the lines. SHwa is really match with her. Even Shin PD she was quite stable.

 

- Second meeting (June 4 2019) she said SHwa lines in ep 2 (parking lot scenes, doing rounds and outpatients, talking with the nurse about her 'ghost' nickname). Both Shin and Lee were impressed and praised her. Lee said JMD sound like a real doctor and she just smile shyly. She also auditioned for GW part (saying the lines where GW was a little bit cold with the patient's guardian asking about CPR etc). Shin and Lee praised her for getting into GW character quite quick and JMD reply it's because both explained about the character well. Both shares their concerned about their decision for what character they should give to her because she has done a great job. Lee said that SHwa character is not an easy character and JMD has really done a great job while auditioning for SHwa's part and they found SHwa's in her. Shin PD also said he did watch JMD's short cameo in 'Mother' and impressed with her because even if she only appeared for a short time, the lines she said really left something. JMD could only smile and hid her happiness for being praised. She then shares her mind, "When I work, there's this think that I always keep in my mind. I will work harder and give twice from what I got paid for (means she will go all out and show that she's worth the money), no matter what kind of roles I would play. Whether it's a small or big, it doesn't matter for me." Shin Lee shared to her that one of the actor who has confirmed (JJS) recommend her during his meeting with the duo (May 9 2019). Shin said that the actor has fallen for her acting and would like to recommend her to join HP. JMD was so thankful to hear that and say if she passed she wanted them to tell her who recommended her. JJS seen her at 'Once' performance and was amazed with her acting. The meeting ended and they said they will contact her soon. The video ended with this sentence 'That's how Mido become Song Hwa'

Will gladly discuss your thoughts further in the thread so post away! :lol:

 

@40somethingahjumma I agree that choosing friendship over anything else was a conscious choice for both IJ and SHwa. I believe neither of them was hopelessly waiting for the other in the last 20 years. As an IkSong shipper, I've also accepted that it would take some time for them to end up together. Quite possible that they're the last, or might not even happen at all (of course, I'm hoping against the latter). And I agree that it has something to do with the 5's dynamics where SHwa serves as the emotional pillar of the other 4. You've mentioned that the other 3 men must first settle their own lovelines before IkSong even happens and I think there's a good possibility that that would be the case. We know that Jwon and Jwan are already on their way to strengthening their relationships with their respective partners but SH is far from even thinking that he deserves a shot at love. As I've mentioned in the shipper thread just a while ago, sometimes I think SH, more specifically his situation, may again be the reason for IJ and SHwa to think twice about their relationship. But this time, the reason is outside of romance. Out of all the men, SH is the most in need of an emotional pillar. In both the first and last episodes of season 1, we've seen significant conversations where SHwa provides comfort to SH. On the other hand, IJ shows just as much concern for SH's happiness. So it makes sense to me that IJ and SH won't get together until SH finds peace in his situation or finds his own solace in someone special (I'm looking at you Minha! :lol:)

 

Yes, i feel the same..

As the emotional pillar of the 5 dynamics, i think all of final decision of Ik Jun loveline is decided by Song Hwa's states. (Well, actually Ahn Chi Hong is getting my nerves hahaaa. How if Song Hwa feeling toward Ik Jun is tumbling down. No no no.. please just don't :))

 

Come to think about Ik Jun, he never falls first before the girls had crush on him (Uju's eomma and Go Ara also falls for Ik Jun first, right?)

but for Song Hwa i think that was different matter. It so obvious that he falls on her at the first sight.

 

Well, i really waiting for Ik Jun's reaction knowing his lil sister dating his buddy.. :rolleyes: I can sense of his anger yet relieved feeling that his precious sister probably think of getting married after her trauma being dumped before..

 

And for my precious Andrea, he deserved all the love because he loves the God so much. And let me conclude that God sent Gyeo Wool for Andrea instead of sent him to serve the God as priest.

 

I don't matter about Seok Hyung, he will end up with his ex wife or finally open his heart for Min Ha. But i think to be with his ex wife is just because he feels gulity.

My gut feeling, Min Ha eventually conquer Seok Hyung ♡♡♡
