What happens to Jung-Min and So-Ra in Doctor Cha?

Seo Jung-Min and Jeon So-Ra go through a tumultuous relationship with Doctor Cha, which ends with a positive and heartwarming turn.

Like his father and mother, Seo Jung-Min keeps his relationship a secret from other colleagues at the hospital. When it’s revealed to the viewers, it comes as a surprise, because in a professional capacity, Jeon So-Ra is very harsh on him, but outside the hospital, she and Jung-Min have an intense chemistry.

However, So-Ra’s tendency to be really harsh on doctors less competent than her drives a wedge between her and Jung-Min, and after a fight regarding it, they drift apart. So-Ra eventually decides that they make their split official. But when Jung-Min is at his professional lowest, So-Ra supports him.

This helps revitalize their relationship, and even after going to serve his mandatory time in the army, their relationship lives to see another day.

It is to go serve his mandatory time in the army. In the meantime, he decides he’ll contemplate what he’ll do with his life. Jeon So-Ra, with whom his relationship was not on the best of terms at this time, decides to wait for him until he gets out.

Three years later, it’s revealed that Jung-Min is serving as an army doctor and is about to jump back into the civilian world and choose what profession to follow. So-Ra asks him about it and he says that he’s thought about it and wishes to resume as a doctor, and in the surgery department.

Meanwhile, So-Ra reminds him that he’d have to call her “professor” when he returns, as she’s become a clinical assistant professor by now.

Thoughts about marriage

After the three-year time leap in the Doctor Cha finale, Jeon So-Ra goes to a dispensary and asks for a pregnancy test kit. Later, she tells Jung-Min that she took a pregnancy test recently, causing him to do a spit-take.

She then tells him that it was negative but doing that test made her think about marriage and having kids, a thought she claims she actually liked entertaining. When Jung-Min is silent for a while, she hits him playfully, asking him to say something romantic at least.

Where are they headed?

Jung-Min was silent when So-Ra talked about pregnancy, kids, and marriage because he was occupied with the thought of having a kid. He tells that to her, and that it was like they had a kid, and in an instant he was gone.

He seems disappointed that the test result came out negative and So-Ra notices it. Jung-Min then screams out aloud how he can’t wait to meet his kid, prompting So-Ra to blush and be overcome with giddiness.

The two go through a topsy-turvy path of a romance in the show, but by the end, they are in a relationship again. Even though they haven’t married yet, they seem to be headed toward that eventuality and also kids, both of the life decisions they seem excited and prepared for.
