Korean dramas are excellent at telling stories. Specifically, medical Korean dramas are the favorite category of fans because they can get a good understanding of the lives of front-line workers and understand the things they have to deal with in their daily lives. Since most Korean medical dramas are serious and sometimes romantic, Netflix and TVN’s “Hospital Playlist” is a warm show that mainly tells the lives of five doctors who have been friends since college.
With the show’s return in season 2 in June 2021, fans await the release of this episode during the week. Fans were waiting for the new series originally scheduled to be released on July 29, 2021, but it was postponed due to unavoidable circumstances. With the surge of Covid-19 cases in South Korea, the government is taking preventive measures. Due to some overlapping schedules in the filming locations, the production team of the show had to interrupt for as long as a week.

What happened in the last episode?
The last episode first welcomes new interns who were previously medical students. As interns choose their respective departments, residents try to sell their departments to them. The focus of this episode is the fact that doctors are also humans. If they find anything relevant, the doctor may establish an emotional connection with their patients. Seong Yeong, a resident at Neuro Surgery, is worried about patients undergoing emergency surgery because they are from the same city. Chang Min, a cardiothoracic surgery resident, feels distressed for the baby patient of the same name. These episodes focus perfectly on small and big things.
Doctors/professors in their 40s who lead surgery still need to learn things in life. Just like Song Hua needs to learn to say no, according to Yi Jun, don’t let himself overwork. Jun Wan needs to talk about his feelings because he has not forgotten his ex. He also really needs to learn to live by himself, because Zheng Yuan wants to raise this question.
As Dr. Zhang expressed doubts about her ability to conduct major operations, she called Ik Jun for help. After the operation, he tried to comfort her and told her of the mistakes Quan Yuan had made as an intern. Talking about their day at the dinner before the band practice, the other four people began to know that Ik Jun was Jeong Won who was angry with him and tried to tell his girlfriend the truth. This moment also allows them to talk about the mistakes they made during this time.
