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


Recommended Posts

 

I am wondering how a person who all his life wanted to be a priest can be irked( according to  poster @nrlleehttps://forums.soompi.com/profile/1444100-nrllee/ ) to someone else at this level.When someone is  so close to become a priest I thought he is full of empathy, understanding and compassion .On the opposite he seems very annoyed with Dr.Jang and as a future priest he should know that to a priest eyes all people are the same .Sentences like" from all people not with her"should not be said.

He is not ready to make the  step to priesthood for me.

And maybe he is frustrated to .Maybe .

@nrllee maybe you are correct .who knows .We have to wait 3 seasons chingu and see .: )

I dont know what I did and this link came after.sorry my friend.

@LovelyLady after i wrote my comment I read your post.I repeat what you said first. Soooorry .did not see it before.;)

Oh yes....I thought a majority of us here(79%) voted friendship as what they like most about the drama  but eh , 80% of the posts here are about shipping...:w00t:

 

I am one of the minority then, who voted for the shipping. And also talk about shipping :D

 

I think this drama has simple formulas that make us addicted: The writer makes us really care about the characters. The characters do not have a decided ending. And they present a slice of life story that is relatable to everyone.

 

Come to think of it, because the romance itself is also not clear, it delivers emotions that are more relatable to everyday life. That's why we do the shipping. Unlike many other dramas, we already know who the male and female lead are. And we know in the end, these two characters will be together. So, it's kinda predicted. But real life is always unpredictable.

 

I love friendship and the shipping equally tho. And I love hospital dramas too (almost vote for this one). But I vote for the shipping instead, because I realized (and learned from Reply 1988 forum), that's one thing I would frequently talking about here :lol: 

 

Anyway, I'm 100% agree with you, the shipping shouldn't take away the beautiful messages that the writer has weaved in about people and life. :thumbsup:

I wish I was living in a Shin Wonho drama :wub: I have no problem with my friends right now, but Shin PD’s friend groups make such amazing support systems.

 

I’m also kinda invested in the romance, but this show just makes me appreciate the value of friendship even more. I have this fear of losing friends along the way, because I see it happen to others all the time. I dream that I’d be able to protect mine for as long as the Lacking Five has. Oh, to have friends who unconditionally love you gathered in the same workplace! Not to mention band practice every week? :tears: My friends and I aren’t even full-fledged adults yet but we only see each other once or twice a year.

 

This is why I’m also rooting for Ikjoon and Songhwa, because my principles have always been rooted in the importance of having a friend as a lover. :D To me, dating someone I barely know would pressure me into opening myself to him and sharing my secrets in a short amount of time. If we wouldn’t work out I’d feel immense regret, because someone I do not consider a family nor friend knows something about me. :lol:

@Kaizen68 I also voted for shipping. Who am I kidding, I'm totally here for the shipping games. And best friend's turned lovers is one of my favourite tropes of all time. @40somethingahjumma I actually thought only after ep 6 that they are giving more importance to romance what's with the revelation of Ik Jun's first love and everything. And you can't deny the fact that he is the only one who came to the hospital to get the results because he is still holding a torch for his first love. Now give me one reason why I should not ship this couple. LOL. Well ofcourse we don't know where Song hwa's heart is right now. Even if Song hwa's past crush is Ik jun, if she is not in the same place as him, it's not going to work out. You might feel like I'm undermining the importance of friendship they are portraying in the show by shipping couples within the group. But no, it's not that I randomly ship people, can't you see that the show is forcing me to do it? LOLOL. Up until 6th ep, I never even thought of Ik Jun as a potential love interest for Song hwa. But everything changed after he gave that damn scrunchie. LOL. I enjoy the drama as a whole, but the thing that attracts me the most is definitely the romance.

@nrllee

I think we have to agree to disagree dear. ;)

 

From everything I've seen since the end of Episode 2, nothing I've seen suggests that Jeong-won finds Gyeo-Ul irksome. Why would he? It doesn't make sense. Why continue working with her then? He only said once that she wasn't his cup of tea. And that was before the maggot incident. I haven't heard him repeat that remark since. Besides he's been nothing but civil to her since. He even works with her regularly. When she had her allergic attack he sent her a "get well soon" text message. He didn't have to. The end of Episode 2 saw him change his mind about her. He thought that her poor bedside manners came out of an arrogance and lack of concern for the patient's well being but when he saw her picking off the maggots from the man's leg, he realised that he was wrong about her. She may be clumsy but she's not malicious. He may have mistakenly believed a few minutes that there was something going on between Ik-jun and GU but I'm sure his friend sorted that out soon enough.

 

Now I agree that we don't as yet have a high level of certainty to say that he has feelings for her... I'd grant all detractors that. But to say that he finds her irritating... I dunno... doesn't match what I've been watching. She's not even his resident and yet I see her working with him on cases in and out of the ER. He might find her baffling at times but that's a far cry from being irksome. On top of that, as someone has already pointed out, he's generally good-natured even when bickering with his buddies. If he is so evidently at odds with her existence, then there is something really wrong with him. Maybe he is using that as a cover for hiding his true feelings! :P

 

I think it's important to separate a number of issues here. Okay... I can understand people not liking Gyeo Ul for whatever reasons. We can't like every character. But I don't think we should conflate that with whether Jeong-won should be in a loveline with her, if that's what the show is doing indeed. The show has done a number of things I don't agree with but that's the prerogative of the director. Now, JW may be really serious about being a priest but that doesn't mean he can't have feelings for her either. A priest is still a man... last time I heard... much less an aspirant to the priesthood. Of course I'm not saying that I'm 100% certain he is in love with her etc etc. I'm not. But these to me are all separate issues.

 

I don't think JW should be a priest. I have good reasons for saying this and they have nothing to do with GU. It maybe that people think GU is not compatible with JW but the poor girl can't always help how she feels. There's not much point beating on her if the showrunners want her to be crushing on JW. Even if her feelings are not reciprocated, does that invalidate them? Even if she isn't "worthy" of a first-class experienced physician chaebol heir? This is dangerous territory to be heading into. I feel like we're reenacting a makjang. :P

 

@triplem

Yeah, sorry dear... I wrote about how we shouldn't focus too much on the pairings and all I seem to do is write about these days is Dr Maggot and Jeong-won. ;)

But the reality is I am super fond of Dr Maggot... and in some ways I find her a far more quirky, fascinating character than any of the other female characters including Song-hwa. It's her I root for more than Jeong-won... sorry JW... :P I just want her to be happy. She's not an easy person to pigeonhole and I find that very entertaining. 

 

@kokodus 

I have said that I think it's quite possible for IJ and Song-hwa to end up together but only when everybody else is sorted. I've caught glimpses of possibilities between them as well. But the show is tricky. It kind of did that with Song-hwa and Jun-wan at the start so I'm not putting all my eggs in that basket. ;)

 

Look we're only halfway in the first season of a multi-season drama, nothing is written in stone as yet. Although, personally there would be somethings I'd love to have certainty about. :D

 

I have my own biases and preferences too. I love the quirky things that the show does. It's what I loved about Prison Playbook. It's difficult not to be somewhat invested in people and pairings... that's true. But I hope that we can all maintain civility even in moments of disappointment.

Why continue working with her then?


He has to. Their work intersects a lot.  She’s the only GS resident. GS is all encompassing.  They get called up for a lot of cases because surgery is required (ER) which is not specifically bone related or neurological or cardiothoracic.  That’s why Bae had to call her in for the child in the first instance as standby in Ep1/2(?).  Remember they called her for support in ER and then the double upped and called Andrea as well (hence Bae apologized to Andrea for his call in which she thought was unnecessary).  And I guess she scrubbed in for the baby with gastroschisis as well because it’s soft tissue surgery and gut related.  As GS resident she has to deal with the adult donor (her specialty) and Andrea deals with the child side of things.  That’s why he was waiting for her call in the end of the episode 6.  Everything was going fine (everything checked out).  She probably scrubbed in with one of the GS professors to remove the donor liver?  Until she (residents do the ringing and paper work) rang Andrea to give him the bad news, the liver was too thick for the baby.  Andrea was ready to receive the liver to transplant into the baby.

 

But yes we will have to agree to disagree on this matter. :lol:

Only a mind-reader can tell if he is serious about becoming a priest.

But based on his DNA or family history, there is a very good chance he will....unless perhaps  Song hwa finds a way to stop him....as he seems to be the best fit... still pure and clean.  The other guys are experienced romantics....so Jeong-Won is not a bad choice....a dark horse.

Go Ara Shares Thoughts And Photos From Cameo Appearance In “Hospital Playlist”

Apr 19, 2020

Go Ara had a blast on the set of “Hospital Playlist”!

On April 17, the actress shared photos of her posing with cast members of the tvN drama including Kim Kap Soo, Kim Hae Sook, Kim Dae Myung, Jo Jung Suk, as well as producing director (PD) Shin Won Ho.

PD Shin Won Ho and writer Lee Woo Jung of “Hospital Playlist” are the same creators behind the popular drama “Reply 1994” where Go Ara played lead Sung Na Jung. In “Hospital Playlist,” Go Ara made a cameo appearance as Jo Jung Suk’s ex-girlfriend and top actress Go Ara.

She wrote, “A fun set. Good luck ‘Hospital Playlist.’ The director offered me an appearance and I filmed with excitement and gratitude. Thank you to the director for the appearance offer. Filming was so much fun and I think it’ll be another valuable memory. Also, thank you to viewers who welcomed my special appearance in ‘Hospital Playlist’ and remembered Na Jung from ‘Reply 1994.’ I’ll continue to tune in as a fan of director Shin Won Ho and writer Lee Woo Jung, and an avid watcher of ‘Hospital Playlist.'”

@40somethingahjumma

I am fond with Dr.Maggot too.I wish I was fond at the same level with Dr.SeongHwa too but ......a heart is a heart and we can not choose which one we like and which we just ....accept;)

Not liking someone does not mean we dislike him though.

I have to say I was surprised when I read somewhere that Dr.Maggot ( who became my favorite character in this drama) is the actress who played in "Confessions" .I did not like Yuri from Confessions ,I found her annoying , did not even recognize the actress and here I am now eating my own words.:vicx:

You never know chingus.

Because something starts in a certain way does not mean will stay for ever the same.

Life and dramas especially dramas with 3 seasons are very unpredictable.

I am with you about this interpretation. 

 

Maybe there are to much interpretation about how JeongWon secretly cares for Dr. Jang but I don't think it is true. 

 

JeongWon will really care to take care of his people, but the fact that he was doing nothing when she chased the man made me think that he didn't really feel he needs to. Even his face somehow looked angry when he told dr. Jang to prepare the surgery. He didn't thank her or ask about her condition. He told Dr. Jang to called the security but she didn't do that and take action on her own. It is not how you take order from your senior. Above all, you make yourself in danger. I think it is in JeongWon's mind.

 

So, until now, I didn't think they will end up together. 

 

I agree that Jeong Won doesn't have any particular/romantic/special feelings yet for Dr. Jang. But I am questioning why Jeong Won didn't say anything to dr. Jang after she chased the abusive dad. Let say he's angry, why he didn't give her advice or lessons?  Again, I believe he's more likely to disagree with her dangerous action. But isn't it unprofessional if Jeong Won left her just like that while he looks so mad? And what if dr. Jang doing that kind of action again? I am somewhat confused.

 

If there will be a romantic relationship between them, I don't think it will happen anytime soon. Jeong Won himself has so many agendas. He wants to quit as a doctor, and he wants to pursue his dream of becoming a priest. And it doesn't feel right to sacrifice your own dreams because someone who likes you. And this opinion has nothing to do with dr. Jang's personality. I love her anyway as she's relatable to many people.

 

It just I believe Jeong Won must be sure and be established first with his career choice as a doctor before finally build any romantic relationship with another doctor. Therefore I see, this couple will not be sailing anytime soon.  Besides, this is a drama with multiple seasons. And we still a halfway in the first season.

But this was supposed to be a joke. An entire family of priests and nuns... that hardly ever happens. It has nothing to do with DNA. It's not the same thing as having a whole family of doctors or lawyers or musicians. You're talking about a whole generation of men and women who aren't reproducing after themselves. ;) There's no one to carry on the family bloodline much less take on the family business. That is such an un-Korean thing to do. This is why his friends think he is nuts. He is the only one left who can potentially have a family. 

Well... I think you can tell if someone is serious about something without having to read their minds. There are things that they do and say that give it away. As a teacher, I can easily tell if any of my students are serious by how much effort they give to something. Every parent knows this too.

 

My view is that Jeong-won only wants to be a priest because all his other siblings have taken vows of celibacy. ;) He's the youngest of 5 children. He doesn't want to be left out of what the others are doing. As long as we're not told otherwise, I'm sticking to this theory. :P To me the priesthood is not an occupation, it's a vocation. Not everybody is suited to it just because they want it. Aside from going through theological training, there's also the practical side of things and the interviews. I don't see him do any kind of volunteer work outside of the hospital within the Catholic system. In Protestant churches, people who aspire to be in the ministry have to be already actively involved in their local church in some capacity. So none of this priest wannabe thing computes with me. To me it's a crutch he pulls out when he's upset. :P

Sure. But there's still nothing in the scenes that they share demonstrates dislike on his end. He is absolutely civil. He's not holding his nose in their interactions. Whatever dislike he had for her, he got over that in Episode 2. It's clear as day to me.

Yes I agree with this. I don't think he dislikes her now. I don't think he has the ability to dislike anyone. Haha. But there are also no evidence of him liking her that way. I have said this multiple times, but I think he treats her like he would treat any other resident under him. That's why I'm hesitating about jumping onto this ship. There are no signs from him. Maybe there are, because they have the most votes, but I can't see it. LOL. 

 

This writer is like the puppet master, she is pulling the strings and we are dancing accordingly. I totally shipped Jun wan and Song hwa initially but it went nowhere, no I'm into Ik Jun and Song hwa, but I can feel the writer's evil smile from above, she is just going to suddenly change course and say that it was Jeong won and Song hwa all along. LOL. I'm prepared for everything. I have learned my lesson from R88.

After ep 6 aired, I check tvn site for the character descriptions, and so far there is no update about the 5 main characters or the supporting characters (Captain Ahn, Lee Ik Sun, Dr Jang Gyeo Wool, Dr Chu Min Ha, and Dr Do Jae Hak) I have translated before.

 

For those who is curious and have yet to see the translation and didn't know where to find it, you can check this post I put under spoiler (Please note that I'm not fluent in both language, so I might have made mistakes)

Spoiler

 

 

 

So to fill the waiting time until Thursday comes, I take the chance to translate 3 people of supporting characters that have become my favorites and whenever they appeared would make me smile: Lee Woo Jo (or can also be read as U Ju, though I preferred to call his name as WJ); Madam Jung Ro Sa; President Joo Jong Soo (or can also be read as Ju Jong Su).

 

Lee Woo Jo (Male/ Ik Jun's son/ 5 years old)

Spoiler


Ik Jun's only son. 
Just like the meaning of his name (a universe), he conveys good energy with a wide open heart. 
He's only 5 years old (Korean age, 4 years old in international age), but to him Dad is a person who can break promise all the time. 
When Dad asked to give 'a kiss' he has to be ready to give it. 
Despite all of that he is a smart son who realized that his Dad is someone who loves him the most more than anyone else.


He spends more time with Aunt Wang than his father but he never complained.
His favorite food is the rice noodle he eats with his dad.
His favorite song is the lullaby sung by his dad.
His favorite smell is the smell of disinfectant from his father's clothes.


In between of his thoughts about his father, the girl who sits beside him at the daycare keeps appearing in his mind.
"Daddy, is this what you call a first love?"

 


Jung Ro Sa (Female/ Jung Won's mother/ 70 years old)

Spoiler


The wife of late Chairman Ahn Byung Woo. As a devout Catholic, when in other house there is no priests or nuns, in this family they have four people!
Among of her five children, her youngest, Jung Won, is the only one who protects the lonely mother. 


In 70 years of her life, she has faced the ups and downs more than a dozen times like others but she is still optimistic and mischievous. 
That's why there are always many people around her and in every meeting there is a lot of excitement.
She has been friends with Joo Jong Soo who is the same age with her and grew up together in the same neighborhood since they were young. 
Since their elementary school days and up until now, whenever they meet they would 'growl' and always at each other's throat (constantly arguing) but if they didn't meet then she will get curious about him and without him, she would feel bored.


He is the best friend of 60 years, the only one in her life.

 


Joo Jong Soo (Male/ President of Yulje Foundation/ 70 years old)

Spoiler

 

He has been with Yulje Group for 30 years. It's not an exaggeration to say that he is part of Yulje's history.
He always looks as the quite type with facial expressions that others can't tell what he is thinking about. He always being misunderstood as an ambitious person.


But who knows what is his inner feelings?
He is already 70 years old and now for him an honor or a signboard are just bothersome.
He just wants to help Yulje, where he has lived his whole life, and leads it on the right path.


He just wants to live quietly in the countryside with his wife while looking at flowers... 
But his sick wife never woke up and he is burdened with the late Chaiman Ahn position.
But whenever he meets with his longtime friend Ro Sa, a smile spreads on the face of gloomy Jong Soo.

Hi! I am a silent lurker here since HP first time aired, but now I can't resist to comment. I have watched all previous this writer's drama, except Prison Playbook (but I think this drama is not counted, because she didn't write it), and I can say it's her habit to do "guessing game" in all of her dramas. Well, you can say that you watch HP because of friendship, but you can't deny that the "unclear loveline" is the most interesting part of this drama. Afterall,  80% discussion of this forum is all about the romance/shipping couple :sweatingbullets:

Anyway I want to give opinion about Jeongwon/Gyeowool.
1. I don't agree if the reason of Jeongwon's cold behaviour to Gyeowool because he irks her. I think it's because he didn't want to give her a false hope. Jeongwon is a very observant person, so I think he realized that Gyeowool has crush on him. But unfortunately, he didn't feel the same way *at least right now* because his mind is full of his dream to be a priest. That's why he keep distance to her. 
Ep 6 shows that only with a smiley message from Jeongwon already made Gyeowool think he likes her, can you imagine if all this time Jeongwon treat Gyeowol like he treats other people (smiling, giving nice gestures), it will make Gyeowol feels her heart fly to the sky :lol: This is why Jeongwon set a boundaries to Gyeowool because purely he didn't want to give false hope of her crush feeling. I think the reason why Jeongwon can maintain his single status till his 40s because he always set boundaries to whomever girl had crush on him. His mind & priorities are always to become a priest, so he never bothered to fall in love, even his character description said he want to be a priest way before than his brothers and sisters, and neither his budding love in 20s or his fame in 30s cannot beat his dream to be a priest.

2. You can argue that Jeongwon start developing a feeling to Gyeowool because of the chocopie scene but I think the purpose of this scene only to show that Jeongwon is a very observant person and a nicest person. He notices that Gyeowool already ate 2 pcs chocopie eagerly (maybe he think she is very hungry or she really loves the chocopie) thus he gives another chocopie. There is no hidden intention in Jeongwon's action, but I can understand Gyeowool's reaction. Afterall, if we like someone, the small gestures from him already made our heart swooning. I think this is why many viewers rooted for Gyeowool because her character and her one side love feels relatable to viewers. 

I don't know how the writer will bring Jeongwon-Gyeowool story, whether they will end up as couple or this will be about a journey of Gyeowool one side love. If they end up as couple, I believe it will not happen in this season. At this state, Gyeowol still has a long journey to win Jeongwon's heart *her rival is God* :sweatingbullets:
But if in the end it's about Gyeowol's one side love story, I believe her character still can shine and have special place in viewer's heart just like Chilbong & Junghwan's story in Answer Me series. 

 

PS: Talking about Jeongwon's budding love in 20s, I don't think it's Gyeowool because in character description Gyeowool's age is 29 years old, which mean 20 years ago, her age was 9 years old. It will be creepy & out of character if Jeongwon's first love is 9 years old Gyeowool :sweatingbullets:
I will talk about Jeongwon's first love in another post :)

Therefore I see, this couple will not be sailing anytime soon.  Besides, this is a drama with multiple seasons. And we still a halfway in the first season.

 

I think it is because he just mad to the point he didn't want to discuss it. He must know that Dr. Jang try to do something good, but it is not the right thing in his opinion. If I'm in his position, I don't think I will yell or try to give her lesson or something too, because sometimes you are angry because something is not as you expected but you didn't do anything as long as there is nothing bad happen. I will just take it to myself. JeongWon is nice to others, he can be petty or rude just to his family or his friends. He won't do that to anyone he is not closed with. 

(And above all, they need to do the surgery. He needs to stay calm. So is Dr. Jang. If he say something bad to her, her focus will be distracted. It is in my opinion.)

 

It is different when he is angry at her when she talks rude to the child's mom. Someone's heart is hurt, especially it is his patient's family. He can't hold his anger at that time, because it is the right thing to do.

But this was supposed to be a joke. An entire family of priests and nuns... that hardly ever happens. It has nothing to do with DNA. It's not the same thing as having a whole family of doctors or lawyers or musicians. You're talking about a whole generation of men and women who aren't reproducing after themselves. ;) There's no one to carry on the family bloodline much less take on the family business. That is such an un-Korean thing to do. This is why his friends think he is nuts. He is the only one left who can potentially have a family.

 

You may be right.

 

But looking back...when the chairman died.. Jeong-Won was the only remaining eligible heir or successor. Note, his older siblings were no longer eligible or have forfeited their right to the inheritance.  Surprise surprise Jeong-Won gave up or passed.  I thought he was just too righteous ...no greed in his bones.

 

However when he expressed his desire (to his mom) to enter the priesthood...that seems to explain it all.....and why he has no interest in acquiring material things or position.  Priesthood requires a "vow of poverty" were they live and die bereft/deprived of any material possession.  So it makes sense.

 

If this holds, then Dr Jang has no chance.  Perhaps Song Hwa has... since they've known each other like forever, and I am guessing.. she holds a special place in his heart.

I’m also a GW/Dr Maggot fan! There’s something really refreshing about her - she doesn’t care about her appearance, she’s honest with her feelings and she doesn’t try to be something she’s not. She’s pining over JW but she’s so far refrained from dolling up or feigning interests to get closer to him. Even when she made blunt comments about Minha’s makeup, you could see it was coming from a good place.

 

She has a naivety about her which is also sweet (eg her hopefulness about the text message and her subsequent disappointment). She looks really inexperienced about love and is desperate for reciprocation but she has no idea what she’s doing. 
 

Do I think JW likes her back? I don’t see active dislike or apathy. He was very upset when he thought she was having an affair with IJ in ep3 even going to the effort of searching for them to voice his objections. When Dr Bong in ep2 asked Dr Bae to call Gyeo-wool to the homeless maggot-ingested guy, JW’s interest was piqued when he heard her name and he followed Dr Bong to the emergency room. There was a close up of GW from JW’s perspective as she was pulling out maggots which stood out to me.
 

Let’s not forget during the cookie scene in ep4 he gave her side glances at least three times before subtlety passing her snacks (he didn’t look at the obgyn resident or the interns this way). I think JW looked concerned when Dr Bae mentioned that the child abuser dad might have a knife and when IJ mentioned her emergency allergic reaction. 

Also did anyone else notice in ep6 after GW assured JW that she explained Ji-ah’s condition to her parents in detail, he said “go seng hess o yeo” which translates to ‘you tried hard’ - probably the nicest thing he has said to her on camera other than the text message which he would never have sent if there was dislike.


Given his inexperience with women and his desire to be a priest, i think it will take him a long time to realise his feelings, be comfortable with having them and then act. Hopefully IJ will play Cupid to speed this up!

 

Hope I didn’t ramble too much but I love the discussion in this forum and I wanted to contribute!
