Barely one episode into the first season and fans of 'Hospital Playlist' Season 2 are already feeling the heartache of it all! 

Episode 1 sees Lee Ik-jun (Cho Jung-seok), Ahn Jeong-won (Yoo Yeon-seok), Kim Jun-wan (Jung Kyoung-ho), Yeong Seok-hyeon (Kim Dae-myung), and Chae Song-hwa (Jeon Mi-do) deal with matters of the heart and turns out, some of them are less successful than the others.

The biggest blow of Episode 1 of this brand new season was easily the fact the Song-hwa turned down Ik-jun, much to everyone's shock. Seeing that they've been such dear friends for so long, Song-hwa doesn't want to ruin their friendship and keep things exactly the way it is. There is a combination of comfort and awkward tension between them, which was clearly brought about by Ik-jun's confession last season. Song-hwa, through the episode, seems to struggle to find a moment to truly communicate with him and when she does, she delivers quite the blow. 

Fans took to Twitter, seeing that they were probably just as heartbroken as Ik-jun, if not more so.  "Tbh, I didn't expect that Song Hwa's answer will be on the EP1. My #iksong heart is broken rn but I'll never lose hope because we still have 11 more episodes to go. #HospitalPlaylist2 #HospitalPlaylist2Ep1," tweeted a fan. 

"After knowing ikjun got rejected me : #HospitalPlaylist2Ep1" added another. "I was kind of expecting Songhwa's answer to Ikjun. But we're still on the first episode. I guess this will be more of a slow burn because it's 20 years in the making!  #HospitalPlaylistS2 #HospitalPlaylist2Ep1" agreed a fan. "Why did they have to hurt me like this? #HospitalPlaylist2 #HospitalPlaylist2Ep1" tweeted a user.









 It turns out, Song-hwa and Ik-jun weren't the only ones delivering the heartache and pain. Watching Chu Min-ha get stood up on a potential date by Yeong Seok-hyeon was not easy to watch either. Min-ha had it all planned out too -- a steak dinner for two, wine and even a teddy bear for Seok-hyeon. She devoured all that on her own and was even stuck with a cake to add insult to injury. But over the episode, it becomes clear just why she fell for him and what's even more surprising is that he slowly opens up to her!

Fans had her back nonetheless. "She was stood up by Seokhyung but she finished two sets of steaks and about a bottle of wine? by herself. I always wondering why people left unfinished food but she's not that kind of person! I'll root for you throughout S2, Chu Min Ha ssaem! #HospitalPlaylist2Ep1," tweeted a user.

"How much I loved this scene seokhyung doesn't realize how much he has opened up to minha. the shy seokhyung who even avoids getting inside an elevator full of people is so comfortable talking to someone else too beside his 4 buddies. #HospitalPlaylist2ep1 #HospitalPlaylist2," tweeted another. "I get it now why Min Ha fell in love with Prof Yang Seok Hyeong #HospitalPlaylistS2 #HospitalPlaylist2Ep1" tweeted a user.






Comment below if you think Min-ha and Ik-jun will get their happy endings this season!  'Hospital Playlist' Season 2, new episodes can be streamed on Netflix on Thursdays.
