While fans might not get the usual episode, there is something else in store for them
Season 2 of 'Hospital Playlist' promised to get into the personal lives of our favourite Yulje doctors, and so far, the series has most certainly delivered.
'Hospital Playlist' follows the lives of doctors Lee Ik-jun (Cho Jung-seok), Ahn Jeong-won (Yoo Yeon-seok), Kim Jun-wan (Jung Kyoung-ho), Yang Seok-hyeon (Kim Dae-myung), and Chae Song-hwa (Jeon Mi-do) as they navigate through work, relationships and friendships.

However, for fans eagerly waiting for the next episode to drop, you might have to hold on tight and wait just a while longer. As reported by KdramaStars, tvN put out a statement addressing the fact that there will be a special episode broadcast on July 29, as opposed to regular programming. This is due to the pandemic.
"I understand that the show was canceled for a week due to the overlap between the quality of the script and the delay of the filming schedule due to COVID-19," the representative mentioned. "Currently, the production team has started editing the special episode," they added. They also shed light on what the special episode would be about. "The special episode will be broadcast on the 29th. We will take a closer look at the commentary videos in which the actors participated, as well as the collection of NGs, and the contents of the first half of the broadcast," they added. While it's not regular programming, it looks like this episode will allow fans to gain a bit more insight into the characters of the series as the actors talk about their roles.
So far, Season 2 has been more about the gang's personal lives, so it will definitely be interesting to see what the actors have to say about their own characters in this special episode. Season 2 hinted at some exciting developments - we might see a few romantic relationships progress and there could even be an upcoming wedding, seeing that Jeong-won wants to propose to Gyeo-ul (Shin Hyun-bin). Seok-hyeon also told Min-ha (Ahn Eun-jin) that although he will keep rejecting her, she should continue to try and ask him out, and seeing that he is opening up to her, he might agree to a date soon. Unfortunately, Jun-wan is still heartbroken over Ik-sun, but we have our fingers crossed that they will get back together. And then there is finally Ik-jun and Song-hwa.
While she did turn him down, Song-hwa is not starting to realize that there might be more to this friendship. It's a slow start, but we're hopeful.
