Director Shin Won Ho and writer Lee Woo Jung, who make a hit with their “Reply” series, are returning. The upcoming tvN’s special drama Hospital Playlist will air every Thursday with the intention to make this into the seasonal drama. This is director Shin’s fresh challenge to change the format of Korean drama and its poor production environment.
Hospital Playlist, the second season of Prison Playbook aired in 2017, is a drama that tells the stories of people living their daily lives, which seems ordinary but actually special, at the hospital, and the five doctors of life-long friends of 20 years.
Let’s take a look at why we should watch Hospital Playlist, which will premiere on March 12.
- The Empathy and Comfort Conveyed in People’s Ordinary Lives
Hospital Playlist captures the joy and sorrow of people gathered in a place called “Hospital” where some are born and some face death. Through the precious story of each and every person in the hospital that resembles our lives, they will deliver warm sympathy and small consolation. It will touch viewers’ heart by making them smile and shed tears with various stories.
- Star Actors with Great Acting Prowess
Hospital Playlist is raising attention with its new combination of actors. Jo Jung Suk, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jung Kyung Ho, Kim Dae Myung and musical star Jeon Mi Do will play the five medical students, presenting a strong friendship. In addition, Kim Hae Sook, Kim Gap Soo, Shin Hyun Bin and Kim Joon Han will appear to enliven the story.
- A Meeting Between Star Director and Star Writer
Director Shin Won Ho and writer Lee Woo Jung once created a craze with their “Reply” series and Prison Playbook by capturing both the ratings and trends. The upcoming drama is expected to deliver heart-warming stories, which is different from a traditional medical drama, with meticulous production of director Shin mixed with writer Lee’s ability to tell the stories of ordinary people and their lives in a comfortable tone.
