Shining Summer Chapter 51 will bring back the questionable romantic duo with more twists to their plot. Jihoon and Youngmin are entering a new phase in life as their odd relationship of theirs progresses. Though the story starts as a traditional BL story with the passive character being at the bottom and the aggressive one being at the top. As the chapters progress we are given a picture of how the history of the two progress. These two might appear normal on the surface but a lot is going on in their relationship that pulls in the reader.
When Jihoon was young he had gotten into an accident that led him to memory loss for a short while. He started acting different from what he was like in the beginning but all that turned out to be a ruse by him. In reality, that was Jihoon only in the skin as he now harbored the soul of someone else in that body. This new Jihoon was more aggressive and naughty, something that moved Youngmin’s heart. This begs the question, does Youngmin loves Jihoon for who he was, or was he in just for the looks?

Shining Summer Chapter 51 Spoilers
Shining Summer Chapter 51 will have Youngmin answer an important decision to make as he got asked out by Jihoon. The relationship between these two started on a weird note, to say the least, but the two gradually grew closer. Jihoon has come to accept his feelings for Youngmin and is working to get into the same college as his love interest. But this was not what made the last chapter interesting, we finally got the moment in the manhwa we had been waiting for so long.
When Jinhoo was sitting quietly and doing his best to study, Youngmin watched him silently and praises him for working hard. After this, the two engaged in a conversation which evolved to Jihoon asking if his childhood would like to be his boyfriend if they got into the same college. The manhwa doesn’t show us the expression that Youngmin is making, as it will foreshadow the decision he will make in the next chapter. But the story so far suggests he will say yes.
