They do not have as much of a connection in Hospital Playlist 2. Ha Yoon Kyung portrayed Yulje Medical Center Doctor Heo Seon Bin, while Cha Chung Hwa was Yeon Woo’s mom in Episode 1. Interestingly, both actresses’ child versions in See You in My 19th Life appeared in Hospital Playlist too.

Additionally, Go Do Yeon portrayed Choi Bo Ra in Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha alongside Cha Chung Hwa, who portrayed restaurant owner Jro Nam Suk.
5. Lee Chae Min and Bae Hae Sun
These two appear to have little to do with each other in See You in My 19th Life. Bae Hae Sun portrays the “evil step-mom, Jeong Yeon Ok, to Seo Ha, while Chae Min is someone Ji Eum has reunited with after previously knowing in another life.
In Crash Course in Romance, Bae Hae Sun is Nam Haeng Seon’s (Jeon Do Yeon) sister and Nam Hae E’s (Roh Yoon Seo) biological mother, Nam Haeng Ja. Lee Chae Min portrayed Nam Hae E’s bestie and love interest, Lee Sun Jae.
