Recap of Deliberate Scandal, Chapter 39
In the previous chapter of Deliberate Scandal, a flashback unveils a glimpse of Jaehee and Seonjae’s past, during a time when Seonjae shared a friendship with Jaehee’s brother, Taewoo. The chapter opens with Taewoo’s announcement of an upcoming trip, accompanied by his mild annoyance at both Jaehee and Seonjae for declining the invitation to join him.
Subsequently, a sudden and tragic turn of events unfolds as Taewoo passes away, leaving his family devastated and shattered by his loss. While Taewoo’s family had offered unwavering support following the demise of his own mother, Seonjae finds himself unable to easily console them due to his striking resemblance to Taewoo, which serves as a constant reminder of their departed loved one.
Seonjae didn’t want to serve as a painful reminder for the family, so he took what he believed was the right step and distanced himself from them. After a while, he decided to open up his emotions to Jaehee. Filled with determination, he went to her house.
Over a shared meal, Jaehee’s true distress became evident to Seonjae. As the meal concluded, Seonjae prepared to confess, but before he could, Jaehee made an unexpected request. She asked him to occasionally act as her brother during meals, much like he had done that day.
Seonjae never managed to confess because he sensed that it wasn’t the right time for Jaehee to hear it. Gradually, he became a surrogate for his deceased friend within the family dynamics. Years passed, with Seonjae playing this role while hiding his authentic feelings.
Jaehee felt a pang of guilt for involving Seonjae in such a charade, yet Seonjae found himself acknowledging his own selfishness in going along with it.
In the present, we find Jaehee en route to the charnel house to pay her respects to Taewoo. During this journey, her thoughts dwell on Seonjae, realizing that their situation had grown so intricate that she could no longer ignore his feelings for her.
