The next day, Gun-Ho's sister, who promised Gun-Ho that she would take care of the wallpaper and cleanup of his condo, called Gun-Ho.
"I'm at your home at TowerPalace right now. When did you do your wallpaper and the bathroom renovation?"
"I did them when I first moved in there."
"I looked around your home again in the daylight, and I think you can just keep your current wallpaper and others. They all look new. The refrigerator and the washer are in new condition as well."
"Okay. Then just have the cleaning crew deep clean the entire condo."
When Gun-Ho came back home after work, he was astonished. His condo looked brand new. It reminded him of the first day when he moved in there. The lampshade, bathroom, and kitchen appliances and all others looked extremely clean. Gun-Ho gave a call to his sister.
"Sister, thank you so much."
"Tell me, Gun-Ho. You have never cleaned up your home prior to today for the past one year, haven't you?"
"Hahaha. I have cleaned only the master bedroom where I stay most of the time."
"There was so much trash and dust. I could literally make a mountain with them. You should regularly clean your home for your own health."
"Haha. Okay. I will do that."
"Tell your bride that the condo is ready then she will order a vanity and a wardrobe cabinet for herself. Someone will have to be there to receive the furniture though. I will ask our father to come and take them for you."
Gun-Ho sent a text message to Young-Eun.
[Deep cleaning is done with the condo. You can start placing your things there. It's ready now.]
[I've ordered a wardrobe cabinet and a bed frame. Also, my desk, bookshelf, and other stuff will be there by the day after tomorrow.]
Gun-Ho made a call to his father.
"Dad, can you come to my home the day after tomorrow?"
"You mean your condo in Dogok Town?"
"Yes. Young-Eun's furniture and other stuff will be delivered there the day after tomorrow. Can you receive them for me?"
"You know the access code to the front door, right?"
"It's the combination of the first two digits of my birthday and your mom's birthday, isn't it?"
"Young-Eun will use the master bedroom, so please tell the delivery people to place the furniture in the master bedroom. My stuff will need to be moved to the room facing the master bedroom. The delivery people will help you with moving things."
"The room facing the master bedroom? I'm not sure which one you are referring to. You have four rooms there."
"It's the first room you see when you open the front door. That one is the second largest room after the master bedroom. You will see my golf clubs there. I've already plugged out the power cord of my computer in the master bedroom, so you can just move it to the other room."
Gun-Ho was organizing the list of the student names at the Advanced Center for Administrative Development in his office in GH Building in Sinsa Town when he received a call from Jae-Sik Moon.
"Someone wants to sell his land to us."
"We've already purchased it. The 1,500 pyung farmland."
"Yeah, once we paid the full amount for that farmland, the landowner of the land behind our factory came to me and offered to sell his land to us. He said he heard that we bought the land next to our factory."
"How large is that one?"
"It's 2,600 pyung large."
"Wow. That's too big, and it will cost too much accordingly."
"He offered it for 1 billion won."
"1 billion won? How come it is so cheap? We bought our 1,000 pyung large land for 2 billion won."
"Oh, the one behind our factory is a landlocked property."
"Yes, it has no direct access to a public road. It's adjacent to our land. You remember the farmland behind us, right? If we acquire that land, we will have one huge parcel of land."
"Hmm, really? I want to see the land first."
"Can you make time? You must be busy with preparing your wedding."
"No, it's okay."
"The landowner is asking 400,000 won per pyung considering that it's a landlocked property. That makes the total price of 1.4 billion won for the 2.600 pyung large land, and he just wants 1 billion won since he needs money right now. He said we can make a huge land by adding his parcel to our current land, and that parcel will no longer be considered as a landlocked property since it would have access to the public road. That will dramatically raise the land price."
"He admitted that we would be the only people who would buy his land."
"Okay. I will be there after lunch."
Gun-Ho thought that 1 billion won was not a bad price at all. Moreover, he was expecting to receive a dividend from GH Media and GH Auto Parts from China where Min-Hyeok Kim was working at. He also agreed with the landowner that the land price would substantially increase once he combined that landlocked property with the current land.
After having lunch, Gun-Ho headed to GH Logistics in Seonghwan Town with Chan-Ho Eum.
Jae-Sik looked better and better every time Gun-Ho saw him. He delightedly came out of the office to greet Gun-Ho. There were two other workers in the office, and they were busy taking calls, which was a good sign for the business.
"This land and the one next door are on the six-meter wide local road. The land over there sitting behind our factory and the farmland next door is the one which was offered to sell."
"Let's go to see it closely."
Jae-Sik led Gun-Ho to the fence bordering the land. After putting three pallets on the ground, Jae-sik said, "Get on the pallets, then you will be able to see the land better."
"Yeah, I see that."
"Do you see a poplar tree over there? That's the borderline. If we acquire that parcel, our land will become a nice one-piece huge parcel of land. We are the only ones who would buy that parcel, otherwise, that parcel will remain landlocked. If not us, no one would buy it since it has no access to a road."
"Okay. Make a contract. Let's buy it."
"Do you have enough funds to buy it? You already spent 2 billion won when you bought this factory, and an additional 4 billion won in purchasing the farmland next door. If you buy this one, you would spend almost 4 billion won in total."
"Let me worry about money, and you just focus on the operation and getting the land."
"With 4 billion won, you don't have to work for the rest of your life, but you can still have a wealthy life even in Gangnam District."
"I will rob a bank if I have to. You make sure to change the land use for those two parcels later."
Gun-Ho tapped Jae-Sik's back while laughing.
When Gun-Ho went back to his home in Dogok Town, Young-Eun's furniture and stuff were there. Gun-Ho's father seemed to have left already.
The master bedroom had a built-in closet, so it wouldn't seem to be necessary to add another furniture to store clothes. But, Young-Eun sent a wardrobe closet anyway. The bed was a queen-size bed. Once all the furniture was in place including her desk and bookshelf, the master bedroom didn't look so large anymore.
"I guess the desk and the bookshelf will need to be moved to another room later."
