Hospital Playlist 2 releases new poster and stills
Hospital Playlist is almost back for its second season! After all those cliffhangers, I can’t wait to finally learn what’s happened to the gang. Recently, the poster above was released showing the five doctors after work, waiting for the rain to stop; the caption says: “The ordinary days of our special lives.”
For those of you who haven’t watched Hospital Playlist yet, I highly recommend a binge marathon between now and when the second season starts airing in mid-June. It’s a warm, medical slice-of-life drama centered around the hospital where miracles of life and death occur daily. It follows a close-knit group of five friends that met in med school nearly two decades ago, and are now all specialists working at the same hospital.
Jung Kyung-ho (Crash Landing on You, Apgujeong Report) plays a prickly cardiovascular surgeon who loves golf. Kim Dae-myung (The Sound of Your Heart, Stone Skipping) plays a shy OB/GYN doc who is a complete mama’s boy. Yoo Yeon-seok (Mr. Sunshine, New Years Blues) plays a pediatric surgeon who believes that Catholic priesthood is his true calling.
Jeon Mi-do (Mother, Metamorphosis) plays a tone-deaf neurosurgeon who is good at almost everything except singing. Last but not least, there’s Jo Jung-seok (Nokdu Flower, Land of Happiness) who plays a general surgeon that is a popular, cheerful single dad of the cutest kid in the universe, played by Kim Joon.
Still cuts of Jo Jung-seok and Yoo Yeon-seok were also released. Regarding season 2, Yoo Yeon-seok said: “Normally when a drama starts filming, I go through a period of apprehension and worry, but coming to season 2 [of Hospital Playlist] felt like going back to school and meeting friends after a long vacation… Although it was our first shoot in a while, it felt so natural and comfortable, as if we had also met yesterday.”
Written by Lee Woo-jung (Answer Me 1988) and directed by Shin Won-ho (Smart Prison Living, Answer Me 1988), tvN’s Hospital Playlist 2 begins airing on June 17.
