1. A Tale of Five Friends
The vibe, the humor and the promises of good times for the five friends featured in the series are conceivably nondescript. These five friends are the core of the drama and every single one of them is utterly endearing. While they are all good doctors who care about their patients, their personalities are distinctly different.
Lee Ik-jun (Jo Jung Suk) is the life of the party and super hilarious. Ahn Jeong-won (Yoo Yeon Seok) is an angel, but he’s surprisingly petty. Chae Song-hwa (Jeon Mi Do) is level-headed and a camping geek. Kim Jun-wan (Jung Kyung Ho) is frank, but is actually pretty sweet. Yang Seok-hyeong (Kim Dae Myung) is awkward, but quite considerate.
2. A happy-toned medical drama
Aside from the main cast, the chirpy spirit of Hospital Playlist also spring from its reliable supporting cast. The interns and residents contribute to the zesty flow of the story with through their connections with the main leads.
K-Dramas taking the medical genre are often characterized by weepy patient stories and corruption-related conflicts. Need not worry about it since the series is different from the bunch. The medical emergencies are not over the top and there’s no unnecessary panic in the hospital. Patient storylines don’t extend for too long, and the characters have lives outside of the hospital.
3. Friendship for Keeps
From the get-go, the audience can feel the friendship forged through the test of time and amazing memories shared by the five friends. The knowing looks and the fortitude to accept each other’s good points and hopelessly bad quirks reel in attention.
While some, or maybe all, of the guys have had crushes on Song-hwa, their friendship goes beyond that. They are always there for each other whether a friend experiences a cancer scare, goes through a divorce, or has a sick family member. Each friend has a different method of showing they care, but you know they have each other’s backs.
4. Keeping the “bond” with music
The five friends re-start their band which means new songs every episode. The actors actually play the instruments themselves with a few of them learning because of the drama.
There’s a lot of nostalgia as they perform songs they enjoyed in their youth. While the music is great on its own, the band is especially meaningful as the friends carve out time to spend with each other.
5. The Humor & Unpredictable plot
If you couldn’t tell from the Darth Vader helmet glue incident, Hospital Playlist parades hilarious moments. Since the setting is a hospital, there are frequent life-or-death situations. However, the show does a great job of balancing heavy moments with light comedy.
Humor comes from the characters, circumstances, and interactions. Cameos also offer some comedic opportunities. There are so many cute, funny moments to enjoy in the series!
Additionally, viewers to get to know the characters and their lives with each episode. While you guess that some characters might be interested in someone, the show surprises with different love lines.
Similarly, the show catches viewers off guard with events that feel sudden since the whole picture isn’t laid out. It’s fun to guess as you watch and find out which of your guesses turn out to be accurate. A trademark that has been perfected by its creative team.
