After lunch, Gun-Ho went up to his office on the eighteenth floor.
Since the secretaryMs. Yeon-Soo Ohwas helping the art gallery's exhibition, the accounting manager brought a cup of coffee for Gun-Ho. While he was having his afternoon coffee, Gun-Ho received a call from Director Yoon in Dyeon Korea.
"You are in Seoul right now, aren't you, sir?"
"Yes, I am."
"I just wanted to let you know how the new hiring is going."
"Please go on."
"For the five positions with work experience, 120 people applied for the job. For the position requiring no work experience, 820 people applied for them."
"It will take time to select the people we need. How come are we getting so many applications for the jobs?"
"I think many people recognized the nameDyeon Korea because Lymondell Dyeon is a global company."
"Even though the work location is in Asan City rather than in Seoul, many people are still willing to work there."
"Since we receive so many job applications, do you think it is necessary for us to conduct an aptitude test?"
"If you think it is necessary, then go ahead."
"We will first go through the applicants' applications, and then we will give a test to those who passed based on papers. We can rent a college auditorium to hold the test. Maybe we can test their IQ using the IQ test specifically designed for those who studied engineering."
"Sir, aren't you going to be at the final interview this time either?"
"No, I won't. Director Kim and youDirector Yoon will have to select the final ten people. Oh, and don't forget to let Mr. Adam Castler participate in the hiring process."
"How are the machines doing?"
"They are working great. We made a request to Lymondell Dyeon to ship us machines no. 7 and no. 8."
"Once we receive those two additional machines, their investment requirements will be fulfilled."
"That's right, sir."
"Once we have all eight machines, we will have to contact the appraisal and assessment institute and request them to issue an appraisal on those machines."
"Also, we will have to submit the conclusion of investment in-kind along with the certificate of importation for all those eight machines."
"Where do we submit the conclusion of investment in-kind?"
"We submit it to the Korea Customs Service. Director Yoon, you just ask the general affairs manager to do the job. You don't have to do it yourself."
"If you need doc.u.ments like a foreign investment report, contact Manager Chang-Hoon Seo in GH Mobile. He took care of the foreign investment registration work when he worked as an assistant manager in the general affairs department there."
"We have already received all the doc.u.ments from Manager Seo."
"Oh, really? That's good."
Whenever Gun-Ho stayed in Seoul, he didn't feel like going to his other companies in Jiksan Town or Asan City. Also, whenever he was in one of those two factories, he felt lazy driving back to Seoul.
"I think it's time for me to have a chauffeur."
Gun-Ho thought of Chan-Ho Eom who Tae-Young Im recommended him to hire for a chauffeur position.
"That guy seems agile and diligent, maybe because he has a fit body which has been trained by the years' of physical exercise. He looks decent as well. But I'm still not 100% sure that it is okay to let him work for me. He has been working as a bouncer. If he causes any trouble with the occupants in this building, that could be a hassle."
It seemed that Attorney Young-Jin Kim from Kim & Jeong Law Firm read about the art exhibition held in Gun-Ho's building. He called Gun-Ho,
"Why didn't you tell me?"
"Haha. I'm sorry."
"Where are you right now? Are you in Asan City?"
"No, I'm in Seoul."
"Really? When are you going back to Asan City?"
"I don't know. I feel like I don't want to go back to Asan City. I will feel the same once I am in Asan City."
"Haha. I guess you are getting old, my friend, even though you are not even married yet. Since you are in Seoul, let's meet up. What about lunch tomorrow?"
Jong-Suk's wedding was scheduled. He contacted Gun-Ho to inform it,
"My wedding will be on the 25th of this month."
"We decided to do it in Cheonan City. My bride feels more comfortable there, and I want her to feel at ease and comfortable. It will be in the Cheonan Convention Center's wedding hall to be specific."
"By the way, bro. I don't see you around often these days. I think I haven't seen you since the wage negotiation with the labor union."
"I've been staying in Seoul. I had to take care of the art exhibition here and other stuff, but my heart is always there."
"I will rent a tour bus from Incheon City, so all the guests from Incheon City like my parents' friends and relatives can take the bus to Cheonan City."
"Of course. Your parents must have lots of friends in Incheon City, who are eager to attend your wedding to congratulate you."
"Oh, and my parents are going to place their house on the market after the wedding. They want to move close to me."
"Really? That's nice."
"They said that people in Incheon City still call them Seolleongtang (an ox bone soup) since my parents had run the restaurant for a long time there, and they don't like it. Their original hometown was around here anyway and they want to move here. Also, they said Dujeong Town looks cleaner than the town in Incheon City where they live right now."
"Haha. You will need to send out your wedding invitation to our client companies and vendors as well."
"I don't have their contact information."
"Just give 100 of your wedding invitation to the general affairs director. I will talk to him."
"If he doesn't need 100, he will give you back the unused wedding invitation."
"Thank you, bro."
President Jeong-Sook Shin informed Gun-Ho that Seol-Bing stopped by the art exhibition yesterday.
"When we were about to close the gallery, a lady who looked like a model came in. She was wearing dark sunglasses. It was Seol-Bing just as you told me. I couldn't believe it was actually Seol-Bing, the Seol-Bing."
"Did she keep her sunglasses on while looking at the arts?"
"Haha. Of course not, sir. She took off her sunglasses. She was truly gorgeous in person. No wonder she is a top star. I am so envious of her clean and transparent skin. You haven't seen her in person, have you, sir?"
"Well, in person no"
'I held her hand. I even kissed her on her cheek.'
Gun-Ho wanted to tell her the truth.
President Jeong-Sook Shin said that she actually took pictures of Seol-Bing secretly while Seol-Bing was enjoying the displayed art pieces at the gallery.
"I couldn't help it. She was so beautiful and elegant. I'm not sure if it is okay to upload these pictures on the Internet. Once we upload these pictures with the subject 'Seol-Bing who was enjoying the Chinese avant-garde artists' paintings in GH Gallery,' it could work as a noisy marketing for our gallery."
"I don't know."
"There might be a problem with her right of publicity, but it was just her profile which I took a picture of. Additionally, it could be used for her own benefit. Since it was a picture of her enjoying artworks, she can build a good image of her out of it."
"Well, do what you have to do."
