Young-Eun's father and Artist Choi seemed that they didn't quite get how much wealth Gun-Ho had acc.u.mulated.
"I hope you could build a hospital for Young-Eun someday once you both save enough money."
"I can get her one right now if she wants."
"Huh? Right now?"
"Auntie! Don't say that. Let's drop the subject. Even if I had enough money to open my own practice, I can't do it right now because I don't have enough clinical experience to handle patients on my own!"
President Shin looked around inside the condo and said, "This is huge for a newlywed. Did you say it is 50 pyung large?"
"This condo must be expensive given its locationGangnam District."
"I purchased this condo at the auction for 1.5 billion won. Its current value might be around 2 billion won."
"Wow! 2 billion won!"
Gun-Ho's father-in-law, Artist Choi, and President Shin looked at each other in surprise.
Young-Eun's father asked, "How much did you borrow from the bank when you bought this condo?"
"I didn't borrow any money."
Young-Eun's father filled up Gun-Ho's glass with liquor.
"You are off tomorrow, right? Let's drink."
"I have a favor to ask you."
"Of course, sir."
"Can you visit Young-Eun's mother's grave with Young-Eun?"
"Where is it?"
"It's in the cemetery park in Pocheon City."
Young-Eun's father explained how to get there. It was not far from the fishing site that Gun-Ho often went.
"Of course, I will, sir."
Artist Choi chipped in.
"My brother-in-law, why don't you visit Young-Eun's mom on Cold Food Day with them? Cold Food Day is around the corner."
"That's a good idea. Well, on second thought, I think it's better that the two of them go there by themselves without me."
"Well, you are right."
"You don't have to rush, but just visit her when you have time. I just think you need to meet Young-Eun's mother, and let her know that you married her daughter. Hahaha."
Everyone got drunk that day.
Young-Eun's father got drunk and so did Gun-Ho, Artist Choi, and even President Shin.
When they finally called it a night, the three guests started preparing to leave for their home. Gun-Ho then suggested they spend the night in his home.
"It's really late, and you are all drunk. Why don't you sleep here tonight and leave tomorrow morning?"
"No, no, I gotta go home."
"There are four rooms here. You can just pick a room and sleep there."
Young-Eun added, "That's right. Dad and auntie, spend the night in our home."
"But, you don't have extra comforters."
"I do. I bought several when I moved in with him here. You can use them. I can share the comforter that Gun-Ho has used."
"Okay, let's do that. We are too drunk to go home at this hour."
Young-Eun, Artist Choi, and President Shin cleaned the dishes together. Since three women did the simple task together, it was done in no time.
Young-Eun's father slept in Gun-Ho's room where his desk was placed while Artist Choi and President Shin slept together in the room where Young-Eun's books were piled up.
Gun-Ho brought his comforter to the master bedroom and laid down on the bed with Young-Eun.
"This comforter reeks."
"What are you talking about? I don't smell anything."
"It smells like a man."
"Of course it does. I am a man, and this is my comforter."
Young-Eun passed out right away. It must have been a very tiring day for her. Gun-Ho could hear her snoring. Gun-Ho kissed her on the cheek and hugged her before he fell asleep. Gun-Ho woke up feeling suffocated; it was before dawn. He then figured that Young-Eun's leg was placed on top of his neck.
Artist Choi and President Shin got up early in the morning because they wanted to head out for home to Yangpyeong early. A few minutes later, they came back.
"Did you forget something?"
Young-Eun, who was folding the floor table's legs, asked.
"The condo management office put a ticket on my car's windshield for a parking violation."
"Oh, we should have let them know that you are our guests."
"The ticket is glued to the windshield. Can I borrow a utility knife? I think I need to scr.a.p.e it out with it."
"Take this wet towel as well. Once you apply some moisture on it, it will come off easily."
"Those management jerks are so impatient, or too diligent?!"
"I guess my father's car is also ticketed."
"I believe so."
"I will come down with you."
Young-Eun's father was still sleeping in the room.
Young-Eun took a bucket of water, a fruit knife, and a towel and went down to the parking lot. It seemed that Young-Eun's father woke up to the sound of their conversation.
"Did you say that someone put a ticket on my car for a parking violation?"
Young-Eun's father put on some clothes to get ready to go to the parking lot.
"Young-Eun already went to your car. I will follow her."
When Young-Eun's father came to his car, Young-Eun was removing the parking ticket from the windshield. He said, "Is it done? I'm leaving then. I feel so relieved and happy to see you two doing great together."
"Dad, why don't you have breakfast with us before you leave?"
"No, thank you. I will just have a bite on my way home, like a hangover soup. There is a very good hangover soup restaurant in Sillim Town near Gwanak Mountain. Gun-Ho! Take good care of my daughter!"
"Don't worry about it, father."
Young-Eun's father waved his hand after rolling down the front passenger window of the car. Gun-Ho and Young-Eun waved back at him.
It seemed Artist Choi and President Shin successfully got rid of the ticket from the windshield as well. Artist Choi started her car.
"Are you leaving without having breakfast with us?"
"I'd love to, but we really need to go now. Thank you for last night. Come and visit me in Yangpyeong, okay?"
"You two make a very cute couple. I'm so happy for you."
"Haha. Thank you."
After sending off Young-Eun's father and aunt, and President Shin, Gun-Ho and Young-Eun came back to their condo, and they went straight to their master bedroom to sleep more.
GH Logistics' Jae-Sik Moon made a call to Gun-Ho to let him know how the process for changing the land use was going.
"In order to change the land use to non-agricultural uses, we need to get a permit for farmland conversion, and that requires the land to be on a road. The thing is that the last land that we just purchased additionally doesn't have access to a road, so it cannot be converted to non-agricultural with its current papers."
"What should we do then?"
"We need to combine that land with the other one that has access to a public road and make them officially one large parcel of land."
"Is it easy to do so?"
"Usually, dividing land into several parts is difficult to do, but combining can be done by an easy process."
"Can anyone do that?"
"The first thing that they look at is the consistency in the ownership. The owner of two parcels of 1,000 pyung large land and 1,600 pyung large land must be the same person."
"Those two parcels are under your name."
"Also, the land must be free of enc.u.mbrances like a mortgage. If you use one of the parcels to secure a loan, then they will deny your request for combining the two parcels."
"I have no plan to get a loan using those parcels of land."
"Okay, I will keep you updated."
"Sounds good. Keep up the good work."
