Doctor Cha Episode 12: Recap
The previous episode started with the two men featured last week ending in a fight. Somehow, Roy Kim and Seo In-ho also got into a fight, and Seo’s nose ended up bleeding. Things escalated, and Cha Jeong Suk had to step in to stop the fight. He then has a conversation with the two of them on the terrace, where he feels they shouldn’t bicker like this as it leads people to believe that the rumors of them being in a love triangle are true.
Seo In-ho was angry at Cha Jeong Suk for not sleeping at their house, but Dr. Cha clarified that not only him but also Dr. Jeon and Chief Resident Hwang, who had been living there with him. One of the patients, Yoo Ji Seon, who had just given birth, showed up at the hospital with stomach pains, and the doctor advised her to be treated. This causes the woman to worry about her new son Li-ji, who is too young to be left alone. He was then thrown away when he continued to insist.
Seung Hee has a one-on-one session with Cha Jeong Suk, where he expresses how much he hates her and the fact that he now works at a hospital. Even though he himself is the one who sinned, he attacks Jeong Suk without any respect. Jeong Suk stands by his decision but is forced to decide more quickly whether or not to divorce In-Ho. When the annoying Jeong confronts In-ho, he tells In-ho that he has decided to end things with Seung Hee and wants to return to their normal life.
When a terminally ill patient named Yoo Ji Seon dies, it’s the son Jeong Suk, who is now away from the hospital after feeling responsible for Yoo Ji Seon’s death. In addition, Jeong Suk and In Ho’s daughter also scored lower in her mock exam test, which caused Jeong Suk to become frustrated with her husband because his husband is cheating on her and having different families has taken a toll on their two children’s mental health.
Jeong Suk visits his daughter, Seo Yi Rang’s art exhibition and regrets that their adult problems have made her and Seo Jung Min very stressed.
