406 Lifetime Companion – Part 1

 Dingding was astonished when she saw Gun-Ho's car.

"Oh, my gosh, this is Binli (Bentley in Chinese)!"

Gun-Ho sat in the rear seat with Min-Hyeok while letting Dingding sit in the front passenger seat because in China, a front passenger seat was usually reserved for the most important figure among a group.

Dingding asked, "This Bentley must be very expensive, isn't it?"

Min-Hyeok Kim answered on behalf of Gun-Ho, "It costs about 2 million Yuan."

"What!? Did you say 2 million Yuan?"

Dingding was impressed by Gun-Ho's financial capability.

Min-Hyeok and his wife arrived at Dyeon Korea in Asan City.

Gun-Ho introduced Dyeon Korea's executive officers to the couple.

"This is our vice president-Mr. Adam Castler. He is from Lymondell Dyeon in Seattle."

"Nice to meet you."

Dingding extended her hand to Mr. Adam Castler for a handshake. Her English was perfect.

Gun-Ho's introduction continued, "This is Ms. Dingding. She is the president of the joint venture company that will sell our products in the China market. She is President Min-Hyeok Kim's wife."

"Oh, really? President Kim is a lucky man."

Mr. Adam Castler seemed to be excited to meet someone who could speak English fluently.

"This is Director Dong-Chan Kim. He is responsible for all sales activities in the national market."

Since Director Kim could speak English, he addressed Dingding in English.

"It is my pleasure meeting you."

"This is Director Hyeong-Sik Yoon. He is in charge of general management."

"Very nice meeting you."

Director Yoon also spoke English in welcoming Dingding.

Gun-Ho addressed all of the executive officers.

"Ms. Dingding wants to see how our raw materials are produced in the production field. I will ask our manager-Hee-Yeol Yoo-in the production team to show Ms. Dingding around the factory."

Gun-Ho then called for the secretary-Ms. Seon-Hye Yee.

"Please tell Manager Yoo in the production team to come to my office."

After a moment, Manager Yoo entered Gun-Ho's office.

"Manager Yoo, we have two guests from China. They will operate the sales company of our products in the China market. They want to see the entire process of our products being produced. They will need to see and know the process in order to effectively explain our products to potential buyers."

"Yes, sir."

Manager Hee-Yeol Yoo gave a tour of the factory to Min-Hyeok and his wife.

In the production field, there were ten machines in total which were fully working while making a loud noise. The machines were actively producing raw materials. Manager Yoo explained each process' step in detail to them. While he didn't let them take a picture of the inside of the factory, he showed them the compound room where only employees had access.

It took about an hour to complete the tour of the entire factory. When they finished the tour, Manager Yoo gave some sample materials to Dingding.

Gun-Ho called Jae-Sik Moon to let him know that Min-Hyeok was with him.

"Jae-Sik, Min-Hyeok and his wife are here with me. They are taking a tour of our factory right now. Let's have lunch together tomorrow."

"Min-Hyeok is here? Of course, I will be there. I will call Jong-Suk to come and join us as well. I know a good restaurant around here so that we can have lunch tomorrow."

"Really? We can meet there then."

"As to the real estate property next door, I gave the landowner the offer of 900 million won. He said he will have to talk with his son first."

"That sounds hopeful. It seems 900 million won is not a bad price for him."

"You think so?"

"Yeah, I'm sure he will contact you soon. If he does, make the sales and purchase agreement right away."

"Okay, I will do that."

After the factory tour, Min-Hyeok and Dingding came back to Gun-Ho's office. Mr. Adam Castler also entered Gun-Ho's office again and said, "I think we should invite Mr. and Mrs. Kim for dinner today."

It seemed that Mr. Adam Castler wanted to get to know Dingding.

"I'd like to visit China someday and visit the manufacturing facility that President Min-Hyeok Kim is running. Also, I'd like to visit Ms. Dingding's company too."

Gun-Ho said with a smile, "I'm sure you will have your opportunity to visit there."

Dingding wanted to take a group picture at the front entrance of Dyeon Korea where a huge business sign was placed. Min-Hyeok and Dingding along with Dyeon Korea's executive officers took a picture together. Dingding constantly commented that Dyeon Korea's building was very clean and neat since it was a newly constructed building.

Gun-Ho said to the general affairs manager who took a picture of them, "Develop two photos of this group shot. Send one to China for Min-Hyeok and Dinging, and place one on the wall of our conference room or at the entrance."

"Yes, sir."

In the evening, Gun-Ho attended the dinner that Mr. Adam Castler hosted for the guests from China. After dinner, Gun-Ho reserved a room for Min-Hyeok and Dingding to Onyang Hot Spring Hotel and took them there.

"Min-Hyeok, take a deep rest tonight. Take Dingding to a spa here. They have an excellent spa facility. I will pick you up tomorrow morning."

"You don't have to come tomorrow. Just send Chan-Ho."

Gun-Ho decided to stay in Asan City that night since the dinner party ended late at night. He didn't want Chan-Ho to drive all the way to Seoul in the late hours. Gun-Ho and Chan-Ho stayed at a hotel in Ssangyoung Town in Cheonan City.

The following day, Gun-Ho went to work in GH Mobile and sent Chan-Ho to Onyang Hot Spring Hotel to pick up Min-Hyeok and Dingding.

President Song came to Gun-Ho's office to give him a report.

"Increasing the capital with the amount of your dividend has been taken care of. It's December now. Would you like to receive the year-end report and next year's business plan this month or in January?"

"If we make it in December, the report must be an estimated one, isn't it?"

"Even if we make it in January, the report will be an estimated one as well, but it would be more accurate. Many large companies usually make a year-end report in December, and they make an announcement of their new year's business plan in January based on the plan received in December."

"Hmm, then let's do it in mid-December. After that, we can throw a year-end party."

"Understood, sir. I will send out the instructions to arrange it."

After President Song left Gun-Ho's office, Gun-Ho thought of having a one big meeting with all of GH companies for their year-end reports. That way, each GH company would develop a sense of solidarity and also would feel the need to be more competitive. However, in order to make it happen, Gun-Ho had to figure out first the venue for the meeting that would be able to accommodate the executive officers from the five GH companies. The venue would have to be either Seoul or Cheonan City.

"Well, maybe I will do that starting next year. This year, I will just visit each company to receive their year-end report."

Gun-Ho once reviewed the possibility of having a comprehensive management office in the GH Building in Sinsa Town. He could step back from the daily management of his companies as a Chairman and let the management office oversee the business activities of all five companies. However, each of the companies was still not big enough, and since he was still single, him as a Chairman wouldn't seem to be appropriate. Therefore, he decided to carry out that plan once he was married, and after GH Mobile and Dyeon Korea had been successfully registered with KOSDAQ.
