302 Meeting in Tokyo – Part 1

 The day after the building dedication ceremony was Friday.

Gun-Ho went to Asan City to Dyeon Korea's factory again to see how things were going there. All the furniture and other supplies were already placed, and the workers were busy arranging things around the factory and the offices. Once Gun-Ho saw the workers working busy, he decided to go back to Jiksan Town to his GH Mobile office. He didn't want to interrupt their work there.

Once he arrived in his office in Jiksan Town, he called for the general affairs director.

"Where are those researchers who received the training from Lymondell Dyeon in U.S.?

"They participated in the building dedication ceremony yesterday in Asan City, and now they are back here working at the research center. I can call them if you have something you want to talk about with them."

"No, that's okay. Please prepare the papers to relocate them to the factory in Asan City. They will be working in the production department of Dyeon Korea."

"Okay, sir."

Gun-Ho then made a phone call to Dyeon Korea to talk with Director Dong-Chan Kim.

"I stopped by the factory in Asan City this morning, and I just came back to Jiksan Town since everyone there seemed very busy today."

"Oh, really? I actually have something to talk about with you, sir, and I was waiting for you to come."

"What do you want to talk to me about?"

"It's about those two researchers who received training in U.S. Since Dyeon Korea is ready to open our business since we are done with the building dedication ceremony, we'd like to have them here in Dyeon Korea. I've already talked to Mr. Adam Castler here and the researcher center's chief officer at GH Mobile about it."

"Of course. I will send them to Dyeon Korea."

"If they start working here in Dyeon Korea, can we make their severance pay successive? So the amount of their current severance pay with GH Mobile is continuously being accumulated with Dyeon Korea?"

"No, I don't think that's possible. First of all, Dyeon America will not agree to that. That would obligate Dyeon Korea to give severance pay to Mr. Adam Castler if he decided to quit now, which doesn't make sense."

"That's true. I was asking about it because those two researchers were wondering about their severance pay with GH Mobile, and they were hoping that they can continue to accumulate the amount even after they start working for Dyeon Korea."

"I will think about changing their salary step then."

"Okay, sir."

Gun-Ho then made a call to the research center for the chief officer.

"We will move the two researchers to Dyeon Korea."

"Yes, sir. Our research center has five new workers now, so we should be good without them."

"Would you tell those two researchers to come to my office now?"

"Sure. Will do, sir."

The general affairs director came into Gun-Ho's office with a report.

"Sir, I brought the notice of relocation for those two researchers as you instructed."

"I will take a look at the report later; I have to take care of something that requires my immediate attention. Please leave the report on my desk."

"Yes, sir."

Once the general affairs director left Gun-Ho's office, the two researchers entered the office.

"Both of you started working here as an experienced researcher. How many years have you been working here?"

"I've been here for four years now, sir."

"For me, it has been two years, sir."

"I'm relocating both of you to Dyeon Korea as of today. Since you are equipped with special training from Lymondell Dyeon in U.S., I'm sure you will do great in Dyeon Korea. You have to know that the National Pension is successive, but the company's severance pay is not. You will get your severance pay from GH Mobile before you leave for Dyeon Korea, and you will start another severance pay with Dyeon Korea once you start working for them."

"......."

The two researchers didn't say a word while lowering their heads.

"Well, instead, I will move your salary step."

The two researchers lifted their heads and looked at Gun-Ho with hope in their eyes.

"I will gladly work for Dyeon Korea, sir,"

The younger researcher with two years of work experience with GH Mobile said.

The senior researcher who had been working for GH Mobile for four years took some time before agreeing.

"I will work for Dyeon Korea as well. So, can I assume that I will receive the severance pay for my past four years of working here now in cash?"

"Yes, you will."

"Thank you, sir. I will do my best working for Dyeon Korea."

Gun-Ho opened the notice of relocation, which the general affairs director left on his desk earlier. The two researchers' employment records were attached to the notice.

"They have been with their current position for four years and two years. I think they will be more excited with a promotion in their positions instead of just raising their salary."

Gun-Ho asked for the general affairs director.

"You sent for me, sir?"

"Yes. We will have to make some changes on their notice of relocation."

"What changes are you referring to, sir?"

"Make a position promotion for both researchers with one step up and give their severance pay. Also, make a severance pay to Director Dong-Chan Kim as well."

"Yes, sir."

"I believe that the amount of Director Dong-Chan Kim's severance pay should be substantial."

"I don't think so. We paid his severance pay when he was promoted to an executive. Also, he took his severance pay when he bought his house."

"Hmm, really? Okay, sir. I will do that, and I will take this report with me if you have already reviewed them."

"Also, can you talk with the assistant manager in the accounting team and the general affairs team? Ask them if they are willing to be relocated to Dyeon Korea."

"Yes, sir."

After the general affairs director left his office, Gun-Ho also quietly walked out of the office, and he told the secretary-Ms. Hee-Jeong Park-on the way out,

"I will be gone for the day. I'm not coming back today. You have a wonderful weekend."

"You too, sir."

Gun-Ho then drove to Gimpo International Airport. He was going to Japan.

It was getting dark when he boarded the flight to Japan, but once the flight took off and reached above the clouds, it was sunny. Gun-Ho was looking down at the clouds and thinking about Mori Aikko. His heart started beating fast.

"Aikko. Hang on there. Your oppa is coming to you!"

Gun-Ho had sent a text message when he was still in his office to make sure of Mori Aikko's whereabouts. Thankfully, Mori Aikko was still in Tokyo.

The plane was full except for the business class area where Gun-Ho was sitting at. There were plenty of empty seats, and it was very comfortable. Gun-Ho stretched his legs. The flight attendants serving the business-class area were very nice.

"Would you like to have a drink, sir?"

Gun-Ho asked her to bring him a whiskey.

"I'd love to have a glass of whiskey, please."

While sipping his whiskey, Gun-Ho was looking out the window. The construction of the building in Asan City was completed, and its building dedication ceremony was over. Gun-Ho felt like he needed a break, and he loved the fact that he was on the way to see Mori Aikko.
