What happened

Like many characters in Chicago Med season 4, most of Choi’s storylines had to do less with his work in the hospital and more with his personal life. The season premiere brought back his sister April (recurring guest star Arden Cho), who seemed to have turned her life around, but didn’t.

Choi soon found out that April was not only pregnant by Bernie (recurring guest star C.S. Lee), who she’d met while dealing with her addiction, but Bernie was already married with a daughter! And it got frustrating—for Choi and for the audience—as April continued to make excuses for Bernie. It all came to a head when April tried to abandon her newborn baby, although she came back and did eventually settle down with Bernie and his whole family.

The relationship between Choi and ex-girlfriend April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) was also a subplot that ran most of the season. Chicago Med brought back Choi’s ex Vicki Glass (recurring guest star Cynthia Addai-Robinson) solely to make April jealous, then had Choi dump Vicki because of his unresolved feelings for April.

By the end of the season, after lots of arguing at work but agreeing on the April situation, Choi and April hooked back up. Now there’s the possibility that April is pregnant again, which would be even more baby drama for Ethan.
