Gun-Ho said to his sister, who was standing next to him, "When you fill out the foreign currency transfer form, you will need the recipient's information in China. Here is their business card. Make a copy of it. You can find their address there. You will also need the name of their bank, their bank account number, the swift code, etc. You can find those information from the paper that we used when we had sent 50,000 dollars to them last time."
"Okay. I will do that."
"Since the amount of the funds that we are sending this time is substantial, you have to be well prepared when you go to the bank tomorrow. Please bring the report on the direct foreign investment. Do you see the yellow folder in the bookshelf over there? That's the folder where you can find all the doc.u.ments related to our investment in China."
"Well, I'd better go now. Keep up the good job."
"Why don't you have lunch with us before you leave?"
"It's okay. It seems that you have clients coming to your office."
Gun-Ho's brother-in-law looked outside the window and said, "They are not our clients. They are the truck drivers who I used to work with. I'm getting a lot of visits from my old colleagues these days. Several of them stopped by yesterday already. When they found out that I'm running this transportation business, they are coming to ask me if there is any position available for them."
"Really? Well, you have a lot of job candidates for the business, haha."
Gun-Ho and Chan-Ho Eom stopped by a restaurant in Ansan City for a meal on the way to Jiksan Town. Gun-Ho preferred to have Japanese food these days, but since Chan-Ho was a meat lover, they went to a restaurant called 'Eunice's Garden Restaurant' in Ansan City to have a steak. Chan-Ho Eom seemed to enjoy the food, and he ate a lot.
Gun-Ho asked him, "How is Tae-Young's business going these days?"
"He is doing fine. Tae-Young bro asked me the other day how come you don't visit Hannam Town anymore."
"I've been very busy recently. I didn't have time to visit them."
"I know, sir. I told Tae-Young bro that you are extremely busy at work."
After lunch, Gun-Ho and Chan-Ho Eom headed to GH Mobile in Jiksan Town. On the way, Gun-Ho took a brief nap in the back seat.
"We arrived at GH Mobile."
The factory's front yard was packed with people.
Gun-Ho mumbled, "Who are all these people?"
When Gun-Ho's Bentley stopped in front of the building's entrance, the security guard ran out of the security office and opened the door for Gun-Ho and gave a military salute to him. The people in the factory yard were watching it.
Gun-Ho had some unpleasant taste in his mouth after having a nap in the car. As he entered his office, he asked his secretaryMs. Hee-Jeong Parkto bring a cup of green tea to his office. When the secretary brought the tea, Gun-Ho asked her, "Who are those people in the front yard?"
"Oh, today is the final interview day for the positions in the production site. Not just the front yard, but the auditorium is filled with job candidates as well."
"Mr. President Song is leading the interview right now. The general affairs director and Mr. Director Jong-Suk Park from the production department are in the interview room as well."
"Hmm, I see."
"According to the general affairs director, we will hire many production workers this time. I think that's because of the product orders that we recently received from A Electronics."
"I've noticed that there are many female candidates among the people gathered in the yard."
"Director Park newly organized an assembly team, and those female workers will be working for the team."
"I see. So he wants to have a separate assembly team."
Ms. Secretary Hee-Jeong Park left Gun-Ho's office after giving a bow to Gun-Ho.
Since GH Mobile was busy with hiring new production workers that day, Gun-Ho decided to leave the company earlier. Chan-Ho asked, "Sir, we are heading to Dyeon Korea, aren't we?"
"Well, I feel so tired today after visiting GH Logistics in Siheung City early in the morning. We have only several hours left before getting off work for today anyway. Let's just go back to Seoul City."
Gun-Ho's Bentley got out of the North-Cheonan IC and entered the Gyeongbu Expressway heading to Seoul City.
"Are we heading to GH Building in Sinsa Town, Seoul City then?"
"Let's go to the educational and cultural center in Yangjae Town. I want to take a sauna there."
"We can go to the Onyang hot spring in Asan City if you want."
"Well, we already entered the expressway. Just go to Seoul as we originally planned."
Gun-Ho's Bentley then got out of Yangjae IC and headed to the educational and cultural center. The center was usually packed with people because of their wedding hall, but when Gun-Ho arrived at the center, the wedding hall was quiet, maybe because it was late in the afternoon.
"Chan-Ho, why don't you take a sauna with me?"
"Sir, I will be here waiting for you."
"Come on. Join me in the sauna. It will be fun."
"Sir I umm"
"I have tattoos on my body."
"So what? Someone is going to bite you if you have tattoos? Who cares? Let's go!"
There were not many people in the sauna.
It was the first time that Gun-Ho saw Chan-Ho's n.a.k.e.d body. He certainly had a sturdy build with well-developed muscles, but he indeed had a lot of tattoos. They covered almost his entire torso. It wasn't pretty, Gun-Ho thought.
Noticing that Gun-Ho's gaze settled on his body, Chan-Ho said, "I'm sorry, sir."
"Can you get rid of those tattoos?"
"It's not easy to do that, and I actually like my tattoos. These look cool. If you go to the U.S. Army Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek City, you will see many American soldiers with tattoos. Their tattoos can't be compared with mine. Theirs are larger and more impressive."
"Really? Did you get tattoos down there too?"
"Huh? Oh, no. I don't have any tattoos on my private part."
"Well, I thought you would."
"Sir, you have a tattoo on your arm too."
Gun-Ho had a tiny tattoo on his left arm. It said 'HOPE.'
"I don't consider this as a tattoo. It's just a word written on my arm. When I was in the military, I got this for fun."
The two men went into the bathtub together.
Gun-Ho commented on Chan-Ho's body, "You have very nice chest muscles. I can tell that you've been exercising a lot. You have a great body, Chan-Ho."
"You too, sir. You have a big chest with large biceps."
"Oh, these? These are not from exercise but from labor. I had developed these muscles by lifting heavy stuff when I was working at a factory years ago."
"You have several burn marks too."
"Yeah. I got all these when I had started working at a factory; I was not familiar with the work at that time. You have nice skin without any scar, Chan-Ho."
While having fun in the watereven though it was a bathtub and not a swimming poolGun-Ho thought of the time when he was playing with Mori Aikko at the swimming pool in Keio Plaza Hotel, Tokyo.
It was Saturday. Young-Eun came home at TowerPalace in the evening.
Young-Eun was four months pregnant. Young-Eun's belly bulged noticeably. She no longer had morning sickness.
Young-Eun said, "I know the gender of our child. I went to see the doctor earlier."
"Really? What is it?"
"We will have a boy!"
"Really? Hahahaha. We will have a little Gun-Ho!"
"You would have been disappointed if it was a girl, wouldn't you?"
"No, not at all. I do like to have a daughter too! Whether we would have a boy or a girl, I just want you and the child to be healthy."
When Gun-Ho rubbed Young-Eun's belly, Young-Eun stopped him, "Stop rubbing it! Enough for today."
