309 Joint Venture 3 – Part 2

 "I will make an arrangement to use one rental car for Mr. Adam Castler and three other engineers from Dyeon America for the commute. Also, I will make sure that the car won't be used by anyone else other than you or the Americans from Dyeon America."

"Sounds good."

"And about the researchers, who are now working in the production field in Dyeon Korea, they have received training from Dyeon America in U.S., but since they are accustomed to a research center setting, they are having some difficulties in working in the production field. So, Director Jong-Suk Park often comes to our factory, and he is helping them a lot. The problem is that I was told that GH Mobile hates this arrangement. They are bluntly expressing their concern and disapproval of it."

"Hmm."

"So, I was thinking that maybe we can hire a factory worker who can do maintenance work with the machines in the production field and also hire one more worker who has work experience to a certain level to have as the team leader."

"Okay. Post those two job postings on WorkNet."

"Thank you, sir. I will try to select young workers with competence at work."

"And..."

"You have more things to suggest, Director Yoon? I guess you came all prepared today, huh?"

"Director Kim and I had an interview with the female candidate who Director Kim talked to you about the other day. You know, the one who was recommended by the government official."

"Oh, yes, I remember that. How is she?"

"I was actually skeptical at first since she was a relative of a government official, and she didn't apply for the position through our regular hiring process. However, it turns out that she is not bad at all. She is good-looking, and she speaks English as well."

"That's good. Then let's hire her."

"I thought it would be better if you see her before we finalize her employment, so I asked her to come here again today. I think she is probably in my office already."

"Do I have to see her? Because you, Director Yoon and Director Kim found her a good fit for the position, then she should be good."

"Well, still, she will work closely with you in serving you with tea and stuff. I think you'd better meet her to make sure we all like her."

"Hmm."

"You will find her a good fit because she is calm and quiet. It seems that she was raised in a good family. Her sister is the wife of a government official, and her father is now retired, but he used to work as a high-ranking government official as well. They are locals from Asan City."

"Hmm. Her sister is the spouse of a government official, and that makes her not very young. I guess there must be a big age gap between the two sisters."

"According to Director Kim, her parents wanted to have a son. Their first child was a girl, so they tried again but ended up having another daughter."

"I see. Her parents must be old people with old beliefs."

"I will check to see if she is here, and I will bring her here."

"Sounds good."

After a while, a young female who looked like in her mid-20s came into Gun-Ho's office. Her hands were folded in front of her, which showed her respect for Gun-Ho and also her nervousness.

"What is your name?"

"I'm Seon-Hye Yee, sir."

"Are you living in Asan City?"

"Yes, sir. I'm living with my parents."

Gun-Ho didn't even bother asking her about her academic degree or previous work experience.

"This is a start-up company of a joint venture. We are still in the process of arranging things before we could open our business. We don't have many female workers and the location is not very convenient to commute. Do you think you can handle all these?"

"I will do my best, sir."

Gun-Ho looked at her carefully. She was definitely the calm and stable type, and she was also elegant.

"Well, I look forward to working with you."

Gun-Ho said with a smile.

"Thank you, sir."

Ms. Seon-Hye Yee gave a deep bow to Gun-Ho before walking out of the office.

After the new female worker left the office, Gun-Ho made a call to President Jeong-Sook Shin at GH Media.

"Yes, sir. This is Jeong-Sook Shin."

"Is a book café a good business nowadays?"

"A book café, sir?"

"Yes, I've seen a lot of articles and news about it these days, especially on the Internet. There are many uniquely decorated book cafes."

"Well, I'm not sure, sir. It's one of the trendy businesses, and I'm not sure if it will bring good money. I guess the specific business requires the owner to really like books. Those sorts of business are not just about making money."

"Have you visited GH Building before?"

"Yes, I went there once. The location is really good."

"I'm going to make its rooftop green like a good resting area. The one on the twentieth floor."

"Oh, I see."

"Do you think it would be a good idea to open a book café there? With the name of GH Media?"

"A book café in GH Building?"

"Right."

"If the book café uses our name-GH Media-then do we operate the café?"

"That's right."

"I don't know. I can't really tell anything at this point. I think I need to see it first."

"When you have time, please visit the building and go to the rooftop. I will let Director Kang know that you will come by to visit soon. He will open the door to the rooftop for you."

"Is Director Kang managing the building now?"

"Yes. We have our GH Development office on the eighteenth floor."

"I see. I will go there tomorrow."

The new female worker-Ms. Seon-Hye Yee-entered Gun-Ho's office. She brought a cup of hot green tea. When she placed the tea on the table she slipped and spilled the tea. She must have been very nervous on her first day of work. Some of the green tea spattered on Gun-Ho's face.

"Holy sh*t!"

Gun-Ho jumped out of his chair in surprise.

Ms. Seon-Hye Yee seemed to be mortified and started wiping out the tea on the table with her silk handkerchief.

Gun-Ho said with a smile,

"It's okay. Don't use your handkerchief. We have a towel in the office."

"I'm so sorry, sir."

"It's okay. Today is your first day of work. You must be nervous. You will talk about this day as one of the fun days in your life in the future."

Ms. Seon-Hye seemed to be still terrified and quickly walked out of the office, and she came back with a towel. She started wiping out the table with the towel.

"It's clean enough, Ms. Yee. The rest of the tea will be dried out as time goes. Why don't you bring me another cup of hot green tea?"

Ms. Seon-Hye Yee prepared another green tea and came back to the office. This time, she was extremely careful while putting down the cup of green tea on Gun-Ho's table.

Gun-Ho laughed, and Ms. Seon-Hye Yee laughed along with him.

Once Ms. Seon-Hye Yee left the office, Gun-Ho mumbled to himself.

"Well, I guess it is indeed her very first day of work in her entire life. She seems very innocent and naïve."
