Gun-Ho's mother held Young-Eun's hand again and said, "Your aunt did a great job. I don't know how to thank her. We are so grateful that she has stayed with you."
Young-Eun didn't say anything, but she frowned in pain.
Noting that Young-Eun was still in pain, Gun-Ho's mother quickly said, "I guess Young-Eun needs to take a rest. She needs plenty of time to recover. We'd better go now. We met the boy, and he is very pretty. He is a blessing to our family."
Gun-Ho said to his mother, "Mom, I think Young-Eun needs to get some sleep now. You can go home; I will give you a call."
"Sure. We will get going."
When Gun-Ho's father cleared his throat like he was giving a signal to Gun-Ho's mother, Gun-Ho's mother gave an envelope to Young-Eun.
"I want you to have good nutritious food with this. Get a good seaweed soup, okay?"
Young-Eun was released from the hospital after two days, and Young-Eun became a full-time stay-home mom for her baby at least for now. Gun-Ho's evening after work was devoted to taking care of his boy. The baby boy was growing rapidly every day with his mother's healthy b.r.e.a.s.t milk.
Gun-Ho went to GH Mobile in Jiksan Town. It had been a while since he went there. President Song entered Gun-Ho's office.
"Congratulations, sir. I heard you have a baby boy."
"I think we received a gift from H Group for your new addition to your family, even though they didn't intend to make it a gift. H Group sent us three product drawings, and these are not assembly work."
"Are we able to manufacture those products?"
"Our researchers are working on it. They are making samples right now. It will be completed within this month."
"What's the volume of their product orders?"
"They haven't mentioned the number of products that they will need, but it's for A/S."
"Is the A/S for discontinued vehicles?"
"They are not discontinued."
"Even though those are not for discontinued cars, I guess we can't expect a high number of product orders since it's for A/S, right?"
"Not necessarily, sir. We will be supplying those products to H Group as their first vendor company, and that means that the number of product orders will be substantial. H Group is a global enterprise."
"I see. By the way, if we use our entire net earnings to pay our debts, you won't receive your dividend either, Mr. President Song. Will it be okay with you?"
"I will get my dividend for my 5% share next year. I want to participate in reducing the company's debt as well."
"I'm sorry, Mr. President Song. You didn't take your dividend last year either for the same reason."
"Don't worry about it, sir. I will get my dividend as much as I could next year."
"GH Media's President Shin and GH Parts Company's President Min-Hyeok Kim in China, they all received their dividend of 60 million won this year. I'm sorry, Mr. President Song, that we had to use the profit to pay the company's debt."
"That's okay, sir. GH Mobile is a large company, and the amount of dividend even for 5% share is way more than the ones with GH Media or GH Parts Company in China. I will take a huge amount of dividends next year. Haha."
"I feel better now knowing that you take it that way."
"Well, I will have to get back to work, sir. I have a lunch appointment with the president of Mandong Company."
"Oh, you do? Sure, enjoy your lunch. I will talk to you later."
Secretary Hee-Jeong Park brought a cup of tea to Gun-Ho's office. When he was enjoying his tea in his office, he received a call from A Electronics' CEO Park.
"It has been a while, Mr. CEO Park. To what do I owe the pleasure of the call?"
"I heard that you are supplying products to H Group now as their first vendor company. Congratulations."
"Huh? How did you know, sir?"
"I have my source. Even though the first product that you are supplying to them is for A/S, you have to know that it's just a start. Once you gain your experience with them and once they feel confident dealing with your company, they will let you provide them auto parts for their new models as well."
"Wow, even though you are not in the auto manufacturing industry, you know what's going on in this industry very well. It's like you have a crystal ball with you or something. This is not even your industry which is electronics, but it is about the auto manufacturing field."
"I accidentally heard about it from somewhere. Haha."
It was creepy, Gun-Ho thought.
'How did he know all these?'
"Oh, I wanted to let you know that I no longer work as an A Electronics' CEO. I'm moving somewhere else."
"Huh? To where? What would happen to our business with A Electronics then?"
"I'm not going that far. I will be working as A Group's CEO at the planning and coordination department. I will manage 26 companies."
"I haven't read that news from anywhere in a newspaper though."
"You will see the news tomorrow morning."
"You have been promoted then."
"I will still be involved in the business between A Electronics and GH Mobile. It will be under my special care. You don't have to worry about your business with A Electronics. You just need to be careful with not producing any defective products."
"I will try to bring good news to you in the near future."
After getting off the phone with CEO Park, Gun-Ho was thinking, 'CEO at the planning and coordination department That means that he now became the right-hand man of A Group's chairman who is Minister Jin-Woo Lee's father-in-law. He will be managing and controlling 26 subsidiary companies under A Group. He is now a powerful man in A Group. This is my opportunity to grow my companies rapidly too.'
While thinking, Gun-Ho went down to the production site. He looked around the production site A. Production site A's manager came to Gun-Ho to greet him.
"The production site A is Team 1, and the production site B is Team 2, right?"
"That's correct, sir."
"How things are going after dividing the production team into two teams? Is it easier to manage than before?"
"Yes, sir. It is indeed easier to manage the teams since we made two smaller teams rather than having one big team."
"Hmm, I see. Where is Director Park?"
"He is probably in his office, sir."
"Hmm, I see. Well, please go back to your work, and keep up the good work."
Gun-Ho went up to the production team 2. The newly-promoted production manager, who used to be a supervisor at the production site A, quickly came to Gun-Ho to greet him.
"Sir, you are here."
As Gun-Ho recognized him, he extended his hand to the manager for a handshake and said, "You have been recently promoted to a manager, right? Congratulations."
"Thank you, sir. I will do my best in my position."
Gun-Ho looked around the production team 2 before entering Director Jong-Suk Park's office. He knocked on the door and entered it.
"Hey, what are you doing?"
"Oh, you are reading a book. What is it about? Production management?"
"Yeah, it is a production management book. I'm having a hard time understanding some theories."
"Learning from a book is good, but you have to take care of the production site too."
"Haha. Don't worry about it. I actually just came back from there."
"Oh, bro. Congratulations on your new addition to your family. I heard that you have a baby boy."
