Watch: “Hospital Playlist” Cast Gather To Discuss Differences Between Season 1 And 2
tvN has dropped another exciting look at the cast of “Hospital Playlist” ahead of season two!
The medical drama series, which began in 2020, tells the stories of five doctors who are best friends and showcases the everyday lives of people at the hospital.
The clip starts out in September 2019, at the cast’s season one pre-production interviews. Jo Jung Suk, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jung Kyung Ho, Kim Dae Myung, and Jeon Mi Do are all asked how they felt when they first received the script.
Now in 2021, the cast are asked the same question, but for the season 2 script. Jung Kyung Ho explains, “I ran in socks, faster than I would to get a package of something that I really wanted to buy and I got there first. They said it was out at 1, so I went right at 1.” Jo Jung Suk agrees with Jung Kyung Ho’s excitement while Jeon Mi Do expresses her gratitude to the screenwriters.
Yoo Yeon Seok shares, “As soon as I opened the first page, I could hear everyone’s lines in their voices. I think it was the first time I had experienced this. Since we’re continuing on with another season and I’m with the same people, it felt like there was voice support.”
Kim Dae Myung comments in a rather monotone voice, “I was really happy. I think that’s the only appropriate way to put it.” He adds, “Another happy moment has come to me again,” before Jo Jung Suk begins cracking up. The rest of the cast join in on the fun, with Jeon Mi Do and Yoo Yeon Seok jokingly accusing Kim Dae Myung of crying.
Just like they were asked before season 1, the cast were then asked which actor they’re most excited to work with. Jo Jung Suk shyly comments, “I don’t think we’ll be able to answer this,” while everyone else excitedly exclaims that they easily can. Immediately, they all eagerly begin shouting out answers, which quickly turns into bickering.
The next question is what they prepared to portray doctors, and Jo Jung Suk nonchalantly shares, “I didn’t specifically prepare anything.” Jeon Mi Do hilariously comments, “He came here without any thought” and they all start laughing as Yoo Yeon Seok chimes in, “There’s no one he wants to see, he didn’t prepare anything, and he has no expectations.”
When asked their thoughts on returning to a tvN drama, Kim Dae Myung answers, “It weirdly feels like I was filming just the other day so…” The rest of the cast start making their own comments as Yoo Yeon Seok tells them, “Let him do his interview!” Jung Kyung Ho jokingly comments, “To be realistic, it really wasn’t the other day.” Kim Dae Myung responds, “Okay, a few days ago then.” Jung Kyung Ho exasperatedly replies, “It’s been a year!”
Lastly, the cast all leave comments for viewers. Jung Kyung Ho shares, “I personally think the script is better than season 1 so I’m really excited myself. I also think viewers will be able to watch more comfortably than season 1 and be touched more.” Jo Jung Suk adds, “We’ll diligently prepare season 2 so that we can repay viewers with a drama that provides them with a bit of comfort and solace.”
Jeon Mi Do explains that she very frequently gets asked when the second season will premiere and expresses her understanding that it represents how patiently people are waiting for it. Then she asks viewers to please wait for them from their homes.
Yoo Yeon Seok also asks viewers to wait patiently for them and shares, “We hope our drama is a small source of fun and healing for everyone during this stay-at-home order.”
Kim Dae Myung comments, “I think I said this at the start of season 1, that we would all be sitting in a circle, so viewers should bring a chair and come be our friend. Since you’ve become our friend and we’ve returned, please come play again. If you’re bored while staying at home, I think watching our drama from start to finish would be a good idea. Once you watch it all, we’ll soon be coming back.”
