Min-Hyeok sent a weekly report to Gun-Ho.
[Made a contract with the Chinese company in Yancheng the one that Dingding was working on the last time I talked with you. They placed an order of 1-ton materials.
The product order request from the Korean companies within the Suzhou Industrial Park is on the rise, where Dingding's storage is located.
It seems that there will be no problem selling 50 tons of materials that were imported from Dyeon Korea.
GH Parts Company that I am running reached its monthly sales revenue of 700 million won. It is due to the increase in product orders from the companies that require the use of Dyeon Korea's raw materials.]
[I want you to find competent and young workers who are in their late 20s or early 30s. We will expand our market further in China.]
It was the day when Gun-Ho was supposed to go to work in GH Mobile in Jiksan Town, but he didn't. Since he got married, he hadn't often gone to his office in Jiksan Town, Asan City, or Seonghwan location. He stayed in Seoul most of the time. The companies in those locations were being handled by people who Gun-Ho trusted, so he didn't have to oversee their daily operation.
GH Mobile's President Song sent the week's report to Gun-Ho when he realized that Gun-Ho didn't show up at work.
[The volume of the product ordered from Chrysler has increased slightly. Our monthly sales revenue exceeded 7 billion won last month. I'm encouraging our employees to work harder aiming at reaching 8 billion won by the end of this year.]
Gun-Ho was thinking.
'If GH Mobile reaches 8 billion won for its monthly sales revenue, it would make its annual revenue 96 billion won. I can reasonably then expect it to generate 100 billion won next year. The company generated net profits last year. As soon as the financial statements are issued for this year and next year, I will apply for a preliminary examination of the KOSDAQ registration. I've invested my personal funds of 5 billion won into GH Mobile. I hope the value of the company shares to increase to five or six times more once it goes public.
GH Mobile is not a start-up company with new technology or a pharmaceutical company with new drugs, but it is a manufacturing company in a smokestack industry. Therefore, I can't expect to see a dramatic increase in the value of the company share, but even with the increase of five times the current value, my shares would be 25 billion won.
After having GH Mobile and Dyeon Korea go public, I will announce to make a conglomerate with all of my GH companies, and then I will step back from running those companies as a chairman. I'm now married, and I will be 40 years old then. I guess no one would say I'm too young to take a position of chairman.'
Gun-Ho was thinking of going on a trip to Shanghai to see Seukang Li, and then he decided to do it later. Instead, he wanted to go to Japan to meet Mori Aikko. It had been a while since he saw her, and also his recent dream about her bothered him.
Gun-Ho sent a text message to her.
[My business trip to Japan is scheduled for next Tuesday.]
Mori Aikko replied.
[I'm currently in Taiwan. I will go back to Tokyo next Tuesday.]
"Taiwan? Why is she in Taiwan? What's the occasion? Maybe she has a dance performance there. Should I ask her? Well, that's not important. If she is there, that's because she needs to be there. I don't need to know. Maybe she went there for fun."
Gun-Ho planned to stay in Japan for just two nights. He thought he shouldn't stay longer with another woman since he was now married, and he shouldn't do that to his wife.
'After seeing Mori Aikko, I'll go on another trip to China to meet Seukang Li. I will need to visit Guizhou Province as well. If so, maybe I should take someone with me. Since I can speak Chinese, I don't need an interpreter. Maybe I should take one of my employees. Oh, maybe I want to go with Chan-Ho Eum. I'm sure he will be so excited about going to China since he probably hasn't been there before.
'Okay, I'll take Chan-Ho with me to China. I don't want to travel around China by myself. Chan-Ho could make a good bodyguard.'
Gun-Ho called for Chan-Ho Eum to his office.
"Did you want to see me, sir?'
"Do you have a passport?"
"No, I don't."
"Get one then. You will need to take a photo of your passport first."
"Once the photo is ready, apply for your passport."
"Do I apply for it at the City Hall?"
"What's your residential address? Is it Sadang Town?"
"Then, you need to go to the district office in Dongjak District. Take several photos and your ID with you. They will issue your passport then."
"Am I going somewhere?"
"You haven't been to China, have you?"
"No, I haven't."
"I'm going to Japan next week. After I come back from Japan, we are going to China the following week. You will need to get a visa issued by then."
"I need to go to the Chinese embassy, right?"
"A travel agency can take care of it for you. Just ask Assistant Manager Ji-Young Jeong, she will handle it for you."
Once Chan-Ho walked out of Gun-Ho's office, he jumped around in excitement.
"Yay! I'm going to China!"
Gun-Ho received a call from Jong-Suk. He became a father of a baby girl.
"My mom said she would be happier if it was a baby boy."
"She is old-fashioned. People prefer to have a daughter over a son these days."
"Haha, really? Glad to hear that."
"I hope your daughter looks after your wife, rather than you. It has to be."
"Well, no luck there. Everyone said she looked just like me. I don't see that though."
"Haha, really? I guess your gene is dominant. Our country has the problem of low rates regarding birth. I guess you are a patriot by having a child."
"Did your parents move to the new condo?"
"Yes, they did."
"Where did they move to?"
"They are now living in the same town as me Dujeong Town. The name of the condo complex is e-Convenient World. They like it. It's clean."
"You are probably feeling a sense of stability since your parents are living close to you. You can get help from them in raising your child."
"My mom insisted that we have to have one more child."
"Yeah, why not? Have one more."
"What about you, brother? Don't you have a plan to have a child any time soon?"
"I just got married. It's too early to expect one. I still remember those old days when you were little. You were walking around with a runny nose in Juan Town, Incheon City. I still can't believe you are all grown up now and have a daughter. You are a parent now, and I'm happy for you. Congratulations again. I really mean it."
"Haha. Thank you."
