Hospital Playlist 2: Episode 6: Nobody is Born Knowing Everything

Proposals seem to be in the air in Hospital Playlist. Neurology Fellow Heo Sun Bin (Ha Yoon Kyung) and Yong Suk Min (Moon Tae Yu) were cute. There is nothing more admirable than a woman willing to support her man. It was so good seeing the twins Jang Hong Do (Bae Hyun Sung) and Jang Yoon Bok (Jo Yi Hyun) finally become interns rather than. I missed them; they remind me of my exciting yet stressful intern days, so I can only imagine how it must be for the interns, especially the twins.

I admire Ik Jun for not letting Song Hwa's rejection get in the way of their relationship. I love how happy he is to be in her presence and more that she enjoys it too. She's definitely slowly letting herself get more comfortable with having more than just friendship. At the same time, I don't particularly appreciate that while everyone is happily going about their lives, Jun Wan pretends to be perfectly okay with his; I was glad he finally opened up a bit to Ik Sun and Song Hwa about his pain. My heart hurts for him. He looks and seems so deflated. I wish I could tell him it doesn't matter how slow he goes as long as he doesn't stop.

I love Jung Won's calm energy. Actually, I love all the professors and fellows in Hospital Play who, instead of criticizing and belittling the interns and even the residents for their mistakes, embrace and help them understand that everybody makes mistakes. Even the expert in anything was once a beginner. I loved that this episode raised awareness of the hardship of students, internships, and new beginnings alike, whatever those may be, but also that it brought emphasis to the nonsensical culture of blame. Assigning blame doesn't make things get better because sometimes bad things happen to good people for no particular reason. It will be okay.

Nobody is born knowing everything because even the expert in anything was once a beginner. Even the most experienced make mistakes. Ik Sun using Jung Won for his mistake to make Gyeo Wool feel better about hers was the best. I swear I love him to pieces. I loved our friends' taking us down memory lane; it was like a reminder that life's greatest lessons are usually learned at the worst times and from the worst mistakes. It's okay to cry over them as long as you dust yourself up and keep going. Everybody is their own superstar; even the band's song choice was perfect, beautifully done as usual. I, too, would name my baby Jung Won if he saved my newborn baby's life. I loved how many he seemed about it too. Watch Episode 6 here.
