tvN‘s highly successful drama Hospital Playlist is currently in the pre-production phase for its second season.
According to an exclusive report from Sports Donga, Shin Won Ho PD and the rest of the production team for Hospital Playlist are working on casting the lineup for the actors and actresses that will make up both the main and supporting cast for Season 2.
While the story for Season 2 will continue to follow Jo Jung Suk, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jung Kyung Ho, Jeon Mi Do, and Kim Dae Myung, there will also be new faces joining the cast to tell the story of the ’99 medical students. The production team hopes to have all casting finalized by the end of November.
One character that has been confirmed not to be returning is Kim Jun Han, who played Ahn Chi Hong in Season 1. His role was confirmed only to be for Season 1.
In addition, the ’99 medical students’ band concept will return for Season 2, with Kim Dae Myung confirming the group still meets up together even after the drama to strengthen their group bond together.
The production team has not yet confirmed broadcast details, but Hospital Playlist Season 2 is expected to be broadcast on tvN by June 2021 at the latest. Shin Won Ho also hopes that only one episode will air per week, which would reduce the amount of stress placed on both the actors and the staff.
