Dyeon Korea's Director Kim said, "I was actually going to make a suggestion to you once we receive machine no. 15 and 16, about having a subsidiary company in India. There are other markets like Southeast Asia, but I think India is the best choice since it has high demands for our products. What about having Dyeon Korea's subsidiary company in India? Unlike GH Mobile, Dyeon Korea has no worries about debts. We have more than enough funds in reserve as well."
"Hmm. I see your point. I will think about it."
"I don't think it will cost a lot to have a Dyeon Korea's subsidiary company in India, just like Dingding's sales company in China. India has two national languages: English and Hindi. We can send Interpreter Lee there for interpretation."
"We will have to do sales work there."
"We have our clients there already like S Group, Mandong Company, and Egnopak. They all have their factories in India. I know all of their presidents in India."
"Our machine no. 13 and 14 are in Port of Busan right now. Once we finish installing them, we will make a request for shipping machine no. 15 and 16. Once they are all set up, we will be ready to supply our products to the overseas market stably."
Gun-Ho received a call from GH Mobile's general affairs director.
"Sir, are you in Dyeon Korea right now?"
"Yes, and I was about to get off work."
"We just received mail from China through EMS."
"From where in China?"
"It's from Antang City, Guizhou Province."
"It must be the business plan from Antang City. Okay, I will stop by there to pick it up on the way home."
"Please give me a call when you almost arrive here, then I will bring the mail to you at the gate."
"You don't have to do that, Mr. Director. Ask one of your staff to do it."
On the way back home in Seoul, Gun-Ho stopped by GH Mobile and retrieved the mail from China.
"It's thick. So, I need to invest in China and also in India. I hope I can make a great return from these investments if I decide to invest."
On the way home, Gun-Ho received a call from GH Logistics' Jae-Sik Moon.
"Are you going back to Seoul without stopping by GH Logistics?"
"I don't think I can swing by there today. I was so busy with GH Mobile and Dyeon Korea."
"The application for converting the farmland to non-farming use has been filed. A civil engineering firm called Seonghwan Total Civil Engineering Service is handling our work. They are a professional firm in this field."
"That's nice. You think everything will go smoothly?"
"I think so. We have a clear purpose of the land-use conversion, and there is no problem with the land. I think the Farmland Management Committee will review our application and will approve it without any problem. It will incur some fees though."
"Once the conversion is approved, I will file for reclassifying the land."
"Can we do that without building a factory there?"
"They usually require a design drawing at least, but that service company said they would take care of everything for us."
"Sounds good. We will have heavy rain soon in the area. Make sure that the truck drivers drive safely."
"I actually told them that we wouldn't pay for any fines for them if they are caught for speeding."
It was Tuesday.
Gun-Ho was reading the business plan from China while sitting in his office in the GH Building in Sinsa Town.
"Since it said 'revised business plan,' they probably modified their original plan."
Gun-Ho continued to read it.
"They reduced the number of floors of the hotel and the size of the waiting area, but the amount of the investment funds stays the same."
Gun-Ho looked for the translator's contact number, who he asked for some translation work the other day. He was an instructor at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. Once he found his phone number, Gun-Ho sent a text message to him asking him to come to his office for additional translation work.
Gun-Ho received his reply right away.
[I can go to your OneRoomTel in Gangnam District. I can be there by 2 pm today.]
Gun-Ho sent another text to him asking to come to the 18th floor of GH Building in Sinsa Town, Gangnam District.
In the afternoon, President Jeong-Sook Shin came to GH Building to visit the art gallery. She stopped by Gun-Ho's office as well. She was with Mr. Yoshitake Matsuda.
"Hi. How have you been?"
"We are here to have a cup of tea with you."
"I've noticed that there is an art exhibition going on at the gallery."
"Oh, we are having an art exhibition for a group of national artists. They are new artists, not famous ones. Five artists participated in the exhibition."
"Oh, so the artworks of five different artists are being displayed, huh?"
"That's right. Those artists are college instructors; so, many college students are visiting the gallery. Their friends also come to see their art pieces."
"Are they selling well too?"
"As a matter of fact, yes. Half of them are already sold. There are lots of pretty paintings that you might want to hang on the wall in your living room."
The secretaryMs. Yeon-Soo Ohbrought tea. Ms. Yeon-Soo Oh always welcomed President Shin. Since she often helped with the art gallery's work, she seemed to be close to President Shin. On the other hand, she seemed to still feel difficult around Gun-Ho.
President Jeong-Sook Shin took out two magazines from her bag. They were Japanese costume play magazines.
"Take a look at these, sir. Mr. Yoshitake Matsuda brought these from Japan."
Gun-Ho laughed and opened the magazine book.
"They are really wearing the same dress as cartoon books' characters."
There were people with yellow hair and blue hair who dressed like soldiers of the Cross in the magazine. Also, some were wearing military uniforms while the others looked like a witch with white hair.
"Oh, my gosh. It makes me feel dizzy."
"Children would love it."
"Mr. Yoshitake Matsuda discussed with Japanese magazines about the possibility of working together. They will let us use their contents to fill up half of our magazine, and we will need to pay them some royalties in return."
Mr. Yoshitake Matsuda added.
"There are lots of costume play events in Korea too. I will take all the pictures of those events and write about them. Also, we can host an event on our own."
"We do that?"
"Since we haven't published any magazine yet, we can use GH Gallery's name to host an event. The winner of the costume play competition will be eligible to participate in the costume play event in Japan."
"We will have to pay for the flight ticket and accommodation, right?"
"We will ask the participants to pay for entry fees, and we can use the fees to pay for the travel expenses."
"It's May, and it is a very good time to have an event like that. The event winner can go on a trip to Japan to participate in the Japanese costume play event during the summer vacation in July. We do lots of events like those in Japan."
"Did you decide where we want to host such an event?"
"I'm thinking of Yeouido Park, and we want you to be there as a judge."
"Huh? A judge? Oh, no, I have no idea what to look at in an event like that."
President Shin, who was sitting next to Mr. Yoshitake Matsuda, laughed out loud.
"Don't worry, sir. It was a joke. Mr. Yoshitake Matsuda often makes a joke."
