Hospital Playlist Season 2 has continued to hint that Ik-jun might get together with Song-hwa. That hasn't materialized so far, except for the showmakers teasing something more than friendship between the two.
Now, Hospital Playlist Season 2 Episode 9 has introduced a possibility of a new couple in the show.
This became highly probable when Seok-hyeong had ditched his band practice after hearing that Min-ah had passed out due to stress and fatigue among other things.
In Hospital Playlist Season 2, Episode 9, his reaction towards Min-ah's advances changed.
Seok-hyeong and Min-ah are the next couple in Hospital Playlist season 2 that audiences want to cheer
He used to be one of the doctors who took about six months just to be comfortable around his staff and eat with them. However, he seemed extremely comfortable around Min-ah to visit her when she was sick and even be okay with her treating him to an ice cream cone.
In fact, when it seemed as if the ice cream might get stolen by Jeong-won or Ik-jun, he seemed annoyed and his smile when Min-ah was around told Ik-jun and Jeong-won that this man was in knee deep.
The problem now is to figure out how he can stop his mother from interfering in this relationship as she did before with his previous marriage.
Min-ah had gotten Seok-hyeong's permission to ask him out five times before she gave up on him. He was certain initially that he would never put another woman through what his first wife had experienced.
Yet, after rejecting Min-ah four times, with one last attempt left from her side, he had definitely changed his mind.
The moment he figures out a solution to the problem that is his mother, this ship is definitely sailing and audience can breathe a sigh of relief as it won't be dragged on and on like the relationship between Song-hwa and Ik-jun's.
Theirs has not seen a speck of improvement over the past nine episodes, except for a tease here and there.
