2020 will be the most stacked year yet for K-Dramas on Netflix, and that will continue in March with the release of tvN’s next series Hospital Playlist. You can find everything about Hospital Playlist here, including its plot, cast and trailer as well as the Netflix release date. We also have the episode release schedule.
The upcoming Netflix Original Kdrama series Hospital Playlist comes from South Korean TV network tvN. The series' creator Lee Woo Jung and Shin Won Ho were previously involved in four popular tvN dramas, including Prison Playbook and the Reply series.
On Friday, March 13, 2020, Netflix will stream the first episode of Hospital Playlist.
Unlike some K-Dramas from tvN we’ve seen on Netflix, only one episode will be available to stream per week.
Hospital Playlist will have twelve episodes in total.
Every episode will run for sixty minutes.
Mydramalist has reported that Hospital Playlist will run from March 12th to May 28th 2020. It will be available on Netflix between March 13th and May 29th 2020.

This is the plot of Hosptial Playlist:
Five doctors have been friends since 1999 when they started as undergraduates. Twenty years later, the hospital still has them. Although their lives may seem mundane, the doctors are part of the microcosm that is life. They witness people dying and being born every day. The quintet was formed out of the mutual love for music that each doctor shared over the years.
These cast members were confirmed to appear on Hospital Playlist's first season:

Jeon Mi Do, an actress, is perhaps the most inexperienced cast member. However her meteoric rise to prominence has been remarkable. Jeon Mi Do is a former guest star in Mother (2018) and a supporting actress in Metamorphosis (192019). She has already landed her first leading role in drama.
K-dramas have had a great year in 2020, particularly for TVN, with the launch of Crash Landing on You, their biggest series yet. Crash Landing on You's finale, a romantic comedy, received a massive nationwide rating of 21.683%. It was the second highest-rated South Korean cable drama and the only one to have surpassed a 20 percent rating. Crash Landing on You topped the list of TVN dramas, but was just behind the JTBC drama Sky Castle.
There’s no reason why Hospital Playlist can’t beat Crash Landing on You, but it will certainly be an incredible challenge. tvN boasts seven dramas in the top ten most-watched cable TV dramas. If Hospital Playlist turns out to be a smash hit then there’s no reason why the series can’t break into the top ten.
100 Days My Prince was the only drama on tvN that wasn't broadcast over the weekend. The six remaining episodes were broadcast between Friday and Sunday.
Hospital Playlist will be broadcasting episodes on Thursday, and we’re not sure what impact that will have on the k-drama’s ratings.
Hospital Playlist will continue to be a huge success with viewers. A second season is planned for 2021.
