Thirty-Nine Episodes 5 and 6 Recap
Shortly before the premiere of this mini-series, director Kim Sang Ho promised a feel-good drama that would not focus on death. But the story is filled up with several emotional sequences from the second episode itself. In the last two chapters, the drama revolved around Jeong Chan Young as she decided to say her goodbyes to her loved ones.
In episode 5, Chan Young told her friends that she wanted to see them settled before bidding adieu to all. She is also shared her bucket list with Cha Mi Jo and Jung Joo Hee. Her friends were surprised to find out that she did not think about herself. Her only wish was to see the people around her happy.
Following are the Four Things Jeong Chan Young included in her bucket list:
- Help Joo Hee start dating Chef Park Hyun Joon.
- Help Mi Jo find her biological son.
- Inform her parents about her illness.
- Encourage Kim Jin Seok to rekindle his relationship with Kang Seon Joo.
In episode 5, Chan Young decided to inform her parents about the illness. She went home with Mi Jo and met her parents. But she did not dare to tell her parents that her only daughter was dying. Mi Jo also could not tell them about it. Since Chan Young's mother realized something was bothering her daughter, she decided to visit her.
In the meantime, Mi Jo and Joo Hee moved to Chan Young's house to spend more time together. Shortly Jin Seok also joined them because he wanted to take care of Chan Young. Though Chan Young insisted her friends leave her alone, they did not move out. When Chan Young's mother visited her unexpectedly, she did not know how to handle the situation. She requested her friends not to disclose any details about her illness.
While Chan Young and her friends were enjoying the dinner prepared by her mother, Seon Joo visited her. Mi Jo happened to see her before Chan Young. She immediately took her downstairs and tried to stop her from seeing Chan Young. Mi Jo requested Seon Joo to leave her friend for once.
