Seasoned actor Yoo Jae-myung is reportedly making a cameo appearance in tvN’s ongoing Thursday series Hospital Playlist 2.
On July 16, several Korean media outlets published news about Yoo’s upcoming participation in the series. In response, the production team of Hospital Playlist 2 neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, saying, “Please verify everything through our broadcast.”
Yoo Jae-myung is admired for his seamless character portrayals in the television dramas Itaewon Class (2020), Vincenzo (2021), and Times (2021). He is known to have previously worked together with Hospital Playlist 2’s director Shin Won-ho and screenwriter Lee Woo-jung in the hit miniseries Reply 1988 (2015–2016). Through this reunion, Yoo’s good relationship with Shin and Lee is expected to reflect in his anticipated noteworthy appearance in the high-rated medical drama.
Hospital Playlist 2 follows five medical doctors, played by Jo Jung-suk (Nokdu Flower), Yoo Yeon-seok (Mr. Sunshine), Jung Kyung-ho (When the Devil Calls Your Name), Jeon Mi-do (Mother), and Kim Dae-myung (The Sound of Your Heart), who share a life-long friendship and similar tastes in music. The 12-episode series airs on tvN every Thursday at 9:00 p.m. KST and can also be streamed on Netflix at 11 p.m. KST on the same day.
