Hospital Playlist was one of the most successful Korean dramas on cable television and Netflix in 2021 before the global success of Squid Game.
The medical K-drama by Shin Won-ho broke the mold and aired for two seasons with weekly episodes. On Sept.16, fans said goodbye to the drama, the characters, and the beloved main cast.
Ever since the debut of the second season, Shin has been asked on many occasions about the possibility of a season 3.
Hospital Playlist entailed the daily lives of five friends and expectational doctors in different fields of medicine.
By the finale episode, storylines ended but still left room for more development between the characters. Shin previously spoke of the unlikely possibility of a third season, but in a recent interview, gives more of an explanation.

The final episode of the K-drama had fans reaching for tissues as they said goodbye in a whopping two-hour episode.

Besides the finale drama, fans got to see where the main relationship for Hospital Playlist left off. In a previous episode, Seok-hyeong (Kim Dae-myung) and Min-ha (Ahn Eun-jin) start dating but share their first kiss in the finale, cementing their relationship.
The finale also moved forward Ik-jun (Jo Jung-suk) and Song-hwa’s (Jeon Mi-do) new relationship, shifting from best friends to lovers.
The hardest part for fans to stomach was Jeong-won (Yoo Yeon-seok) revealing he is leaving for the states to study medicine further. In Hospital Playlist fashion, the main characters also ended their run playing as a band.
