What Happens to My Family Episode 38 Recap
With Tae Joo out of the way, Kang Shim goes back in to hear Daddy Cha's final condition for making the lawsuit go away
Kang Shim's feeling that something is off becomes full blown suspicion when she sees Kang Jae taking Daddy Cha's vitals. Quick to react to Kang Shim's questions about Daddy Cha's health, Kang Jae fools her by saying he is only using Daddy Cha as a test subject in one of his research.
The next morning, facing a repentant Kang Shim, Tae Joo gives nothing but coldness. However, once Kang Shim leaves his office, Tae Joo's quickly mutters nervously "Was I too severe with her?" On the other side of Kang Jae's office door, Kang Shim smiles "I haven't had this jittery feeling for long while. It's not bad, it's not bad." Ha! What a hilarious reaction to Tae Joo's show of pouting.
Before Eun Ho and Seo Wool can hash out the difficult question if the three of them can really be friends, they are interrupted by Dal Bong's presence.
Dal Bong gets called to Eun Ho's office to hear the Sous Chef's confession and to be the one to make the call if the Sous Chef should be fired or not. Dal Bong makes the Sous Chef pay for all the tofu he wasted and generously allows him to keep his job.
Dal Bong "I truly likes Seo Wool. Very much. Sincerely. I have liked her since the first time I met her 12 years ago and even when I met her again. I will keep liking Seo Wool in the future. So with that in mind, you tell me, do you think you can be friends with me til the end?"
All we got was a cryptic smile from Eun Ho.
Completely aghast by her once refined mother's behavior, Hyo Jin turns away from Madam Kwon's frantic explanation and wonder off in shock.
Blaming Miss Ko for her image being so gloriously ruined, Madam Kwon storms into Miss Ko's store ready to fight. Unfortunately for Madam Kwon, Miss Ko apparently still retain much of her moves from her high school days, and Madam Kwon ends up giving herself a black eye.
Surprised by Professor Kwon's change of heart, Kang Jae is touched when Professor Kwon chides him for hiding Daddy Cha's illness from him.
Across the street, Daddy and Auntie Cha looks with satisfaction of all the kids laughing together.
After Daddy Cha leaves, Kang Jae comes out of the tofu store to find a stunned Kang Shim. Having heard the conversation between Daddy Cha and Kang Jae, Kang Shim demands "Tell me! What cancer treatment? Is dad sick?"
Unable to hide Daddy Cha's secret anymore, Kang Jae finally admits the truth to Kang Shim.
Whew, one more sibling knows. While I understand why Daddy Cha wants to keep his illness a secret so everyone's life can be kept as normal as possible, but how about the extreme level of regret all his kids will have if they really are kept in the dark until his death?
