"I actually activated this group yesterday covertly, and they found two Achilles' heel of your opponent the news anchorman that can greatly make him vulnerable from the election point."
"Really? What did they find?"
Minister Lee dragged his chair toward Gun-Ho to sit close to him.
"Even though I tell you what they found, you should pretend that you've never heard of it. Even with your friends or close people within your inner circle, you have to keep it that way."
"I will. Of course, I will."
Gun-Ho took a sip of his green tea before continuing, "According to my group, your opponent had previously said this."
"What had he said?"
"He had said that 'all the women, who are living in Gangnam District, are beautiful, but there are so many ugly women in other areas. That's why I'm living in Gangnam District.'"
"It certainly shows that he is mean, but that doesn't sound serious enough to affect the election."
"It is, sir. It can absolutely become a huge issue. The people, who are living in 'other areas' which could be any non-Gangnam District area including the election district, would get upset protesting that he is looking at them with the way he sees pigs and dogs, rather than humans who have to be equally respected."
"My group of 3,000 people will not just repost it online, but they will attack him using what he previously said. They would say that how can he claim that he would represent the interest of the people in Gyeonggi Province by running for election in the precinct, when he perceives the people in that area as animals, since they are not from Gangnam District. What do you think? Don't you think that he would lose a lot of votes because of it?"
"Hmm, I guess that is very likely."
"He will try to explain as more and more people learn and talk about it. He would say that he was young and stupid when he made that comment, but he is now a well-experienced man who is ready to devote his life to the district's development and its people's well-being."
"People will soon calm down again as time goes on, and the gap between his support and yours will be reduced again. We then repost another one that he said when he was younger."
"You have another one?"
"Yes, we have one more so far. It's about compulsory military service that he didn't complete."
"I didn't serve in the military either. I had a health issue with my back."
"When he was in college, he said something funny. We will connect what he said with his exemption from the military service. My 3,000 people will launch a series of attacks on him with it."
"That's amazing, President Goo. I heard that you went to high school in Incheon City. Why don't you work with me in renovating the political climate of our country and stabilizing the economy for the people? If you join my political party, I will help you get elected in the Incheon City area in the future."
"Haha, thank you for your offer, sir. I really do, but I have zero interest in politics. I'm a businessman. I will stay as a businessman until my day comes. I have no aptitude for it either."
"That's a shame. If I have someone like you in my political party, I would feel like I have a thousand troops supporting me."
At that moment, someone knocked on the door. The male worker, who looked like he was in his 50s, entered the room.
"Umm, sir, the local influencers are here to see you."
Gun-Ho quickly stood up from his seat.
"Well, I guess I took too much of your time, sir. I'd better get going now."
"I wanted to talk with you longer, President Goo"
"Well, that's all I have for you today anyway, sir. Since we don't want others to see us together at this sensitive time, I won't come to see you again in person. Also, unless it is absolutely necessary, I won't give you a call either until the election day. Just know that I will be working behind the scene to have you elected, sir."
"Thank you. I feel so encouraged and energetic again after talking with you. There will be a day when I could give you a big present."
"Thank you, sir."
When Minister Jin-Woo had come to the meeting room where Gun-Ho was waiting for him, he looked down and tired, but he now looked vigorous and vivid again. After Gun-Ho left the room, Minister Lee mumbled to himself, 'He has 3,000 workers of a civic organization, who are ready for his order? Wow. He is certainly something.'
It was the day when Gun-Ho was supposed to go to work in GH Mobile in Jiksan Town for the morning time and Dyeon Korea in Asan City in the afternoon. But, Gun-Ho went straight to Dyeon Korea without stopping by GH Mobile that day.
Once he arrived at his office, he opened his email. A news email was waiting for him, that was from Min-Ho Kang who was working for a civic organization Better Society Community. Several doc.u.ments were attached to the email. They were the doc.u.ments of Min-Ho Kang's and two other administrators of the organization, such as copies of their resident registration and bank account. Gun-Ho printed them out. He then called for Mr. Adam Castler and the internal auditor.
"Those who went to India are they coming back tomorrow?"
"Yes, sir. Director Jong-Suk Park, Manager Hee-Yeol Yoo, and also Director Yoon, they are all coming back."
"I wonder if they tested the production site there, by producing some sample products."
"They did, and they said that it's working great."
"That's good to know."
Mr. Adam Castler said, "Umm, sir, Mr. President Brandon Burke in India wanted to say thank you."
"He doesn't have to thank me. Actually, I appreciate that he decided to work with us in India."
Mr. Adam Castler continued, "I think I might stay here with Dyeon Korea longer. Mr. Brandon Burke strongly recommended me for Dyeon Korea's next president position. He told the head office that Dyeon Korea absolutely needs Mr. Adam Castler."
"If you could take the president position in Dyeon Korea and stay with us here, we welcome you with our arms widely open."
"Thank you, sir."
"I know that Dyeon Korea's workers love you here, Mr. Vice President Adam Castler. If you will take over this position, I would feel greatly relieved, and I will comfortably sit back as the chairman of the board."
"Thank you, sir. And, Mr. President Brandon Burke in Dyeon India is asking if Director Jong-Suk Park can be relocated to the India location."
"That would be very difficult. Director Jong-Suk Park is working for GH Mobile, not Dyeon Korea."
"I told Mr. Brandon Burk about it, but he still wanted me to ask you about it since GH Mobile is also one of your companies."
"That would be impossible. GH Mobile's President Song would never allow it. Director Jong-Suk Park is an essential worker in GH Mobile."
"President Brandon Burke is hoping that Director Park takes the plant manager position of Dyeon India."
"Is that right?"
"He mentioned that watching Director Park working reminded him of the Japanese engineer Mr. Sakata Ikuzo when he was younger. They both are excellent engineers, and also their personalities seem to be similar.
"Haha, really? I understand that President Burke in India highly recognized Director Park's competency at work, but GH Mobile needs him as well. Tell him that GH Mobile absolutely needs Director Park for their extruding and molding work."
"Yes, sir, I will."
"But, I can do this for him. If the factory in India encounters any problems with their machines or needs someone to install more machines, I can send Director Park there for a temporary period."
"Yes, sir. I will let him know."
