'Hospital Playlist' season 2 achieves 14.9% in ratings with first episode, the highest first episode rating record for any tvN drama

AKP STAFF

tvN drama 'Hospital Playlist' has finally returned with season 2, recording the highest viewership ratings for a first episode of any tvN drama. The first episode perfectly met the expectations of viewers with its deeper story and amazing on-screen chemistry among the actors.

The first episode of ''Hospital Playlist' season 2 (directed by Shin Won Ho, written by Lee Woo Jung) aired on June 17th, and recorded a city-wide average viewership rating of 11.7% and peaked at 14.9%. The nationwide viewership rating averaged at 10% and peaked at 12.4%. Thus, 'Hospital Playlist, season 2' broke the record for highest viewership ratings that a first episode of tvN drama has ever received.

The highly popular drama series made its comeback with a strong start. The first episode gave glimpses of both the ordinary daily life and intense hospital life of five friends Ik-Jun (played by Jo Jung Suk), Jung Won (Yoo Yun Suk), Jun-Wan (Jung Kyung Ho), Seok-Hyeong (Kim Dae Myung), and Song Hwa (Jeon Mi Do), all who work as doctors at Yulje Hospital. Season 2 instantly captured viewers' attention with its first scene, where Seok-Hyung receives a phone call from his ex-wife Shin-Hye (played by Park Ji Yeon). The appearance of the character of Shin-Hye was a huge reveal, for viewers had only been able to hear a vague mention of her in season 1. Thus, season 2 has garnered a lot of attention for its likelihood of revealing major characters and many untold stories from season 1.

'Hospital Playlist' season 2 airs on tvN and Netflix every Thursday at 9PM KST. The second episode will air on June 24, 9PM KST.
