The cable channel unveiled photos of the production's table reading from January, gearing up for the new season's premiere.

"Season 2 will follow a more compact and heartwarming storyline that extends bits and pieces of the plot from the first season," director Shin Won-ho said through the network.

Friends since medical school, five doctors with different specialties ― Lee Ik-joon (Cho Jung-seok), Ahn Jeong-won (Yoo Yeon-seok), Kim Jun-wan (Jung Kyoung-ho), Yang Seok-hyeong (Kim Dae-myung) and Chae Song-hwa (Jeon Mi-do) ― come to work at the same hospital.

Seo Yea-ji's career goes into tailspin amid multiple allegations of misconduct

Actress Seo Yea-ji is facing what may be the biggest crisis of her career, concerning her reputation. A few days after she was blamed for controlling her then-boyfriend and actor Kim Jung-hyun while he was filming MBC's romance drama, "Time" in 2018, Seo has been accused of school bullying, mistreating staff and falsifying her educational background.

On Monday, local tabloid Dispatch reported that Seo and Kim, co-stars of the 2018 romance film, "Stay with Me," were dating when Kim was shooting the "Time" series, and the actress demanded him to decline to be filmed in any romantic scenes with his co-star Seohyun.

Seo allegedly pressured Kim "to change the script to delete romantic scenes and physical contact" and to "act cold" toward female co-stars and staff. Kim eventually stepped down from his role, citing sleeping and eating disorders.

Responding to reports, Seo's management agency, Gold Medalist, said Tuesday that messages exchanged by the two were, "Conversations between lovers showing jealousy over each other's physical contact with others," and are, "A commonly seen quarrel between actors who are dating."
