Hospital Playlist Season 2: What are we to expect?

Ik Jun Confession Resolved

Fans are most interested in the big question: Will Lee Ik Jun or Chae Song Hwa finally be an item?

Hospital Playlist's finale saw Ik Jun finally get the courage to admit his feelings for Song Hwa. This made Song Hwa extremely upset with her ex-colleague.

Song Hwa is unable to make a decision before Ik Jun says she should take her time. He leaves for a conference in Spain.

You can expect to witness their awkward reunion upon his return.

Seok-Hyeong’s future

After making the decision to stay at the hospital rather than taking over his late father’s company, Seok-Hyeong has a happy outlook on for the future.

This could be changing as Seok-Hyeong received a call from his ex-wife in the final moments of season 5. Yoon Sihye. Is she trying to get money from her divorce or to reconnect with her ex-husband after the passing of her father?

Judging by the look on Seok-Hyeong’s face he isn’t happy to see her call.

Problems with long-distance relationships

Kim Jun Wan's relationship with Lee Ik Soon has hit a snag. After traveling to London to complete her doctorate abroad, she appears to have rejected Jun Wan’s Christmas present, as it is returned to him.

It’s likely she is upset with Jun Wan after he forgot about her departure time.

There’s also the matter of Jun Wan confessing to his childhood best friend Ik Jun about the relationship he has with Ik Soon. Jun Wan is yet to reveal to his childhood best friend Ik Jun that he's currently in a relationship with his sister. This could cause a lot more drama.

A blossoming relationship

Jung Won made a happy decision to remain at the hospital and, in doing so, reciprocated Dr. Gyeo Wool's feelings. He finally admitted his love for her.

Next season we’ll see the development of the relationship, and potentially we could even see Jung Won pop the question?
