Doctor Cha Episode 12: Recap
The previous episode starts with both of the men shown last week ending up in a fight. Somehow, Roy Kim and Seo In-ho also get involved in the fight, and Seo ends up with a bloody nose. Things escalate further, and Cha Jeong Suk has to intervene to stop the fight. She later has a conversation with both of them on the terrace, where she feels they shouldn’t fight this way as it makes people believe that the rumors of them being in a love triangle are true.
Seo In-ho was mad at Cha Jeong Suk for not sleeping at their house, but Dr. Cha clarified that it wasn’t just her but also Dr. Jeon and Chief Resident Hwang, who had been living there with her. One of the patients, Yoo Ji seon, who had recently given birth, shows up at the hospital with stomach pain, and the attending doctor advises her to get admitted. This causes the woman to worry about her new child Li-ji, who is way too young to be left alone. She is later discarded when she keeps insisting.
Seung Hee has a one-on-one session with Cha Jeong Suk, where she reveals just how much she hates her and the fact that she’s now working at the hospital. Despite being the sinner herself, she lashes out at Jeong Suk with no regard. Jeong Suk stands firm on her decision but is forced to decide faster if she’ll divorce In-Ho or not. When Jeong sucks confronts In-ho, he lets her know that he has decided to end things with Seung Hee and wants to return to their normal life.
When one of the terminally ill patients named, Yoo Ji Seon passes away, the blame is put on Jeong Suk’s son, who was now away from the hospital after feeling responsible for Yoo Ji Seon’s death. Moreover, Jeong Suk’s and In Ho’s daughter also scored a lower rank in her Mock exams tests, which caused Jeong Suk to be frustrated at her husband as his cheating and having a whole different family on the side had troubled both of their children mentally.
Jeong Suk visits her daughter, Seo Yi Rang’s art exhibition and is sorry that their adult problems caused her and Seo Jung Min so much stress. Yoo Ji Seon’s family sues Jung Min for not treating their daughter properly. Meanwhile, Cha Jeong Suk realizes that the old family she had built with In Ho could never return and asks for a divorce.
