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


Recommended Posts

Jun wan getting kicked in the face by Ik sun has got to be the most funniest scene i've ever watched in dramaland. His utter shock and disbelief over what just happened....LOL poor oppa.... Last week someone here mentioned the bruise on his lips from the preview and who would have thought it would be from Ik sun.....gosh that girl is just awesome on many levels. Oppa holding her hand and asking her out was just so beautifully shot like the Jajjangmyeon scene in last ep. Orange is their couple colour I guess. Hehehe. I love this couple so much. 

 

Jeong won specifically ignoring Dr. Jang itself should mean something, right? I think he is hiding something. I can't quite read his expression. Either he is sooooo mad at her or he is just slowly falling for her and is in denial stage right now. It's hard to tell. I wouldn't have suspected anything if he said something to her after that chase scene. Ignoring her feels like he is giving more importance to her.....we have to wait and see....what do you think @nrllee??


Looks like they are going with the breast cancer route for Song hwa. She is 40, right? Highly prone to Cancer. Sighhhh. I hope she doesn't hide it from her friends. I was actually thinking the other day how it's all only fun and games until now for our Fab five. Singing together, having meals together....I wanted to see how they support each other and be there for each other during tough times. Song hwa's condition will be a perfect storyline to showcase that aspect of friendship.

As much as I love Ik Sun, I don’t know why but I can’t get behind her possible relationship with Jun Wan. I don’t know why.

 

I must admit that I feel the same too. I tried to compromise by watching their scenes, but somehow still not really into this relationship. I am sorry, guys. I love Ik Sun, and she's fantastic, but hm... idk. It's not that I only wanted Jun Wan to be with Song Hwa, or I don't want Jun Wan ends up with Ik Sun, but maybe because the writer didn't flesh that out properly in the first place, imo. And I know Shin-PD will show their scenes more often in the future, and that's fine, and I can see myself support them together in the future. But it also might be because I am not rooting in Jun Wan's character as much as I did before. Like I almost don't care anymore what he's doing since I realize that I don't understand his emotions dynamic. I understand that maybe some of you explained why Jun Wan naturally likes Ik Sun and highlighting the brighter sides of them, but it doesn't convince me. Only the show itself can do that, which I think is already failed unless they provide the flashbacks of Jun Wan and Ik Sun's first meeting and conversation. But I don't think they will.

Btw, I wasn’t that happy with today’s episode, I don’t know why. I miss Dr. Jang and her crush. We didn’t get much scenes between them. And obviously I knew Jeung Won was gonna say he’s interested in the Lord. Lmao.

 

 

I am in the same boat as you, chingu. I usually rewatch the whole episode immediately, but for today's episode, I only rewatch the very first part (Dr. Jang chasing the abusing dad) and the trailer of the next episode. I still enjoy the show tho, I cried during the baby born scene, and when a liver recipient was crying because he got the liver from his daughter. But in recent episodes, what makes my heart flutter the most are Dr. Jang and Jeung Won's scenes. And unfortunately, I didn't get many scenes between them after seven days of waiting :D Again that's fine. It means I can be more relax in waiting for the next episode.

This episode, like all other episodes, is making me laugh out loud one moment and then cry the next. I think this is probably the only drama where I never used the fast forward button. 

 

I know some people think we spent too much time with the parents (the mafia game was hilarious) this episode. But I think it is an important scene, if only for the possibility of Seok-Hyung's mom being happy again. I laughed so hard during the mafia game antics and then the show twisted my heart with the phone call between Seok-Hyung and his mom where she said it's the first time in a while that she laughed this much. As much as I hate Seok-Hyung's dad and the mistress (the guts) and want them to be miserable forever, I want Seok Hyung and his mom to be happy. And they can't do that if they are still spiteful towards the dad. The mafia game and the parents gathering is probably to show us (and mom) that it is better to move on. This pd and writer never ever does anything that is unnecessary. I also wanted more scenes with the 5 friends, but I appreciate the show treating every character as a living being, and giving them full story arcs. One of the reasons I will forever be a fan of this creative team.

Here’s my take.  He is NOT impressed with Dr Maggot and he probably wants to shake her off his tail. Andrea is someone who pays attention to details.  He is impressed by people who take care in the little things and is observant about little things.  Evidenced by how he is impressed by Dr Bae (during Ep1 with the boy in ER and how she related to his mom Vs the insensitive way Dr Maggot spoke to her).  That’s why when he confronted IJ about his suspected fling with her he exclaimed, “NOT GyeoUl??”  I know some have read that to mean that perhaps he liked her which is why he told IJ to back off.  But I read that to mean he was aghast that IJ would have such poor taste (meaning he didn’t like her).  When everyone was talking about SH’s dad and bringing up all his BIG mistakes, Andrea chose to pick on a rather small incident (when he was sent on an errand by SH’s dad and his dad still hasn’t paid him for it).  His point is not that the 1000Won mattered to him.  But it was a character issue.  And Andrea picked it from the start.  What you’re like in the little things in life says a lot about what sort of a person you are.  That’s why he approves of Dr Bae (I don’t think he “likes” her - his head is not in that space right now, he’s going for priesthood so he will want to stay celibate).  Dr Bae notices little things and preempts stuff (getting an XRay done on the child, calling security and the police).  He’s not into big showy gestures which is how Dr Jang is presenting before him now.  Removing the maggots (big showy gesture).  Chasing down the abusive father (another grand gesture).  Notice how she was expecting praise from him?  He dislikes that.  You don’t do something in hope to gain brownie points (Dr Jang).  You do something because you have a moral compass that shoots true (Dr Bae).  Did you see how PD placed SongHwa into the picture?  What was Andrea snacking on in that conference with SH about the baby?  A Pepero stick.  What was SongHwa fake drumming with in her car when she was heading to camping?  A Pepero stick.  Who got the upper hand with the abusive man (who later threatened Andrea?) - you guessed it, SongHwa, not Dr Jang.  Dr Jang was chasing (just like she is now with Andrea).  SongHwa was standing still, waiting for the man to come to her (she’s waiting for Andrea, not chasing him). I think PD/writer puts these things in like a candy trail.  Especially the Pepero stick.  There was absolutely zero need to put it there.  It adds nothing to the scenes.  But it’s there for a purpose.  To link the 2 (SHwa and Andrea) together. :lol: If Dr Jang wants to weasel her way into Andrea’s heart, she has to undergo a massive internal change in character.  Thus far I don’t see it.  She’s missing the little things that would impress Andrea, she needs to be more like Dr Bae.

But why didnt he ask Dr Bae to scrub in to his surgery for the twin if approves of her ? How do you know he dislikes that?  It is commonplace for you to want to be praised for your efforts by your supervisor. If the doctor in charge was different, I am pretty sure she will have the same reaction. 

 

He confronted IJ not because of who he supposedly had an affair with but the act itself. They are friends and for someone who sings praises about his wife , it is quite surprising that such a person will have an affair. 

 

Big showy gestures that are her responsibilities, Dr Bae on the other hand is the first point of contact for any emergency as she is an ER resident so it is a given she does all that because she is responsible for that patient. 

 

She doesn't need to change her attitude for acceptance from him, if the writer does that I will be very annoyed. If he likes her, he should be because of who she is (flaws and all). 

 

All these assumptions and we are yet to hear from him what he thinks about her.

For now, I will just assume Jeong Won likes Dr. Jang and he is in the denial stage. Maybe right, maybe wrong. But I just love their scenes together. I won't over-analyze things because I have been burnt by this writer before lol.

Because she’s not a surgical resident.  Jang is a GS resident so she’s the one to scrub in.  ER residents don’t scrub in.

Hi everyone - I’m new to this thread...

 

I believe JW’s reaction to IJ and GY stemmed from his moral outrage at a married man seemingly having an affair. JW wouldn’t egg him on if IJ was chasing after a resident he got along with better.

 

In ep 2 when Dr Bong got a call about the maggot guy, JW followed him to the emergency room to check out the situation after hearing GW’s name. JW didn’t need to be there when GW removed the maggots while Dr Bae was visibly squeamish in front of the patient. I interpreted that he was quietly impressed and perhaps saw her in a new light.

 

I think Dr Jang is an interesting character. Even Dr Bae acknowledged it took guts to chase after that abusive dad and it is definitely not her job as a surgeon to do that. I think it’s only human that GW was disappointed that JW didn’t acknowledge her, it doesn’t necessarily mean she lacks a moral compass. 
 

I agree with Day, GW shouldn’t change too much. She represents a good contrast to JW. He is overly invested/emotional at times which is noble but leaves him at risk of burning out and threatening to quit every year. She seems to show resilience and is responsive to criticism. I’ve met doctors like Dr Jang who are clinical, scientific and hard working. I’m sure she can improve her patient manner and technical skills but she’s still training.

 

Anyway, I’m shipping the two characters but I was disappointed with episode 5. Hope episode 6 is better!!

Deabak —  but I totally hurt my head bumping a hard cabinet beside me because I kept on laughing and then crying one moment in this episode.  Overall my thoughts came up with this —  “Get busy living or get busy dying.” and “Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.”

 

1. Continuation of abusive father — JWon is correct about the father and his not afraid to confront but I worry for the revenge. 

 

2.  Notes 1: In here there’s two people admiring Dr Garden — Dr Bae (unknowingly) and Dr Jang and the latter she’s loosing her face so much while Dr. Bae remains classy. Why did she run catching the bad father without asking help to the people in front of them? I think Dr Garden knew she will do this and he’s not liking it.  He likes Dr Bae’s style and she receives the best appreciation. 

 

2. Eating over food and then band practice (they are really getting better in every song - they are really living up to the playlist thingy) discussion despite being busy; have a life either with family or friends. Work is not be all and end all.  

 

3. While rich people does not care about liver transplant from their children here we are we saw how a father felt bad that he is taking away his daughters’s liver to survived.  

 

4. I hate those Seok Hyung colleagues taking away SH away from friends and family. I love the idea but bad timing and bad way. Grr. I will never like that Girl with green colored thingy. Haha overnight of SHwa in SHy room and Jwan and Jwon supporting mom’s request. Haha. Ik Jun so supportive and caring to his patients and team mates. I love that his team mates does not take it wrongly if he butts in. For them its learning time. Two thumbs up. It’s nice to eat pride chicken. I love Jae Hak’s relationship to JWan. He’s still supportive of his slow learner resident. Hahahah. Song Hwa’s group conference oh my Dr An, I like his smooth style but the silence killed his heart. I love his sincerity. Mi Do really did one hell job of actress being that strong and reliable person but she needs someone right now and it broke my heart. Our Dr. Garden seems too observant to miss anything wrong with her.   Trio-JaeHak-Sunbin-Seokmin friendship and they cannot believe they let go of lunch time by Song Hwa with Chi Yong. hahahaa

 

5. Weekend family time with Rosa and Jeong Won With Jung Su and Ju Seon with new member Young Hye (SHyung mom) — my new squad goals when I get older.  They really destroyed the stereo type wealthy people story.  I cannot believe Mafia game was even played in HP that had gone wrong as they took it too seriously! Just inserting my idol faves — EXO played this well in their Vlive and ROFL watching them because they totally enjoyed but deabak these elders played well too and my heart was so really touch! Hahaha

 

- Studying to be priest in Italy

- Study to be a groom.

- Your brothers and sisters can but not you; I’ll be lonely

- I am dress casually 

- okay ice it is

- Why are we doing this? so that woman from head to toe looking like Audrey Hepburn is Yang Tae Yang’s wife? —haha I’m dying of laughing how this hospital executives being this gossip people and can be this cute. They even got jealous of tickets. 

- I like someone : Man above

 

6. Back to the hospital - pay check to pay check patient JungWon and JaeHak tandem. I love these two when it comes to discussing things. JWon really drawn to him.  Ah Ik Jun and Bin’s family moment so touching and dang Jo Jung Suk made me really crying on this moment. How can he easily teared like that. 

 

many more to laugh, cringe and cry. I’m totally 3x whipped of this drama. 

..... sleepy already. I can’t get over tonights ‘s episode again for a week. Haha. It’s good this is just one week.

Hey everyone! I recently started Hospital Playlist and loved it so I ended up binge-watching all the available episodes.

 

I adore the fab five and I think this drama does such an amazing job of showcasing the close friendship they share. I also love that it interweaves their patients lives without it taking away from the focus. I have cried in every episode from the scene where Jeong Won loses his patient, to the scene where Cha Seo Hyeon is comforting the crying ahjumma in the elevator, to the scene where the little baby holds the intern's thumb, to today's episode with the lovey-dovey couple who has the baby and the dad sings in the delivery room.. all these scenes are brief but meaningful. 

 

As for the fab five - I love all the band scenes, I love the flashbacks, I love the scene where they eat Kalguksu and where they're just talking in one of their offices. The little things they do for each other without thinking just goes to show the closeness they share.

 

As for episode 5, I have to say that I really loved the Mafia scene. It's nice to see the older generation also have such a close friendship.

@pppewww couldn't agree with you more! I also relish every second of this drama. Like you, I also loved the Mafia scene. I also thought it was such an important scene.. it goes to show that there is more to these characters. The phone call between Seok-hyung's mom and Seok-hyung as she was leaving, when she says it's the first time she's laughed like that in a long time... that was so beautiful to me. I don't think it necessarily says that it is better to move on but rather, that the end of her marriage isn't the end of her happiness and that she will, one day, find reasons to laugh and be happy again. I love that scene too because of the fact that all of them (with the exception of the director - can't remember his name) have lost their spouses. So to have each other to lean on and move forward together is really something.
