The Heavenly Demon Gives a Massage Chapter 70

“Wait a minute. Is this the price?”

While looking at the interior plan that Kang Tae-han handed over, Director Hwang openly showed a look of bewilderment. At his reaction, Kang Tae-han asked with a puzzled expression.

“Yes, is there any problem?”

“No, it’s not a problem… … .”

He said as he quietly put the plan he was holding down on the table. It was a plan sent by Hwang Yun-soo, an interior designer who had recently been to an empty store with Kang Tae-han.

In the estimate, there were three proposals divided into plans A, B, and C, a bird’s-eye view of each plan constructed with a simulator, and the estimated costs to go into them.

“Is the price too good?”

However, the reason Director Hwang was embarrassed was not because of negative reasons, but rather the opposite. The cost listed in the estimate was significantly lower than he had anticipated.

“If you insert a contractor like this and pull out the interior… It would be hard to come by this price range.”

Although Director Hwang was not an expert in the interior design, he was able to estimate roughly how much it would cost given the size of the store and how much effort was put into the interior.

It was empirical knowledge that I naturally accumulated as I traveled here and there since I was young, and I had about seven or eight new business openings and remodeling that I had personally experienced.

In that sense, this interior plan brought by Kang Tae-han was enough to embarrass him.

Looking at the concept plan and bird’s-eye view in front, I thought, ‘This should be enough,’ but the estimate at the back was far below that level.

‘But it doesn’t seem like the interior was made roughly… … .’

The interior is mainly composed of wood to feel the oriental atmosphere. The space is relaxed and spacious, but there is no place that feels useless or looks empty.

In addition, it was felt that even the smallest details related to the business were arranged with care, such as the line of sight that customers see when they enter the store, the flow of customers from the lobby to the massage room, and the flow of masseuses leading to the rest room.

Of course, you can’t be completely relieved until the interior is actually completed… At least from the perspective of what was shown in the bird’s eye view, it could be said that the project was flawless.

“I guess you’re okay for now?”

“Very well. Both price and design.”

When I opened my business, I had a big heart and called a contractor to entrust it, but I regret more than I thought because the interior was not good compared to the money.

In that sense, this project was quite good. It shows understanding and concern about the related industry, and the quality is excellent, and even the price is good.

“I heard that it is worth calling the interior industry booming these days… … . At this time, with this quality and this price, it’s a really, really good choice.”

Director Hwang, not only giving high praise, raised the thumb of his right hand.

“At this level, people were chosen without thinking about profit. Where did this kind of person come from?”

“I was introduced to you by an acquaintance.”

“Aha… … .”

At Kang Tae-han’s words, Chief Hwang nodded as if he finally understood. Somehow, it was an estimate that could not be obtained by calculating profit and loss.

“Did you say he was the son of an acquaintance… … . Anyway, I felt like they cared about the convenience quite a bit.”

More precisely, it seems that Shin Jun-ho introduced Hwang Yun-soo to the people around him when he was having a hard time and took care of a lot of work. And Taehan Kang benefited from that.

“… Taehan’s personal connections are great.”


Kang Tae-han tilted his head at Director Hwang’s words.

I don’t know if it was the days when I was in Moorim, but it’s because I’ve never thought of it as a word with a relationship in modern times.

“Look now. I received a shop in the new building, received investment money, and was introduced as a good interior designer… It’s not a joke, what.”

Director Hwang said that in a playful voice and raised the teacup. Meanwhile, Kang Tae-han, who heard his words, nodded slowly. When I heard it, it was not wrong.

“I’m lucky to have many good people around me.”

“What luck? Taehan is usually well-liked.”

At Kang Tae-han’s words, Chief Hwang shrugged and said.

It would be a lie to say that there is no element of luck in networking, but in the end, developing and maintaining it is not just about luck.

“is that so?”

“That’s it. I’ve never heard anyone say anything bad about Taehan, whether it’s the masseuses or the staff here.”

Director Hwang’s words were not simply words that Kang Tae-han wanted to listen to, but the truth.

It would be ungrateful to say such a thing since he is the main character who made the massage shop successful now, but even when he had just entered and wiped out the regulars, there had never been a word like that.

Of course, it wasn’t just because of Kang Tae-han’s popularity, but for some reason, it seemed that there was an influence of an atmosphere where he shouldn’t be turned into an enemy… anyway.

Meanwhile, at Chief Hwang’s words, Kang Tae-han shrugged lightly and opened his mouth.

“Well, since I’m usually well-liked, wouldn’t it be possible to get along well with a multi-talented person like the head of the department?

“eww… Why are you doing this to me?”

“Your manager started first.”

At Chief Hwang’s disgusted reaction, Kang Tae-han smiled and took a sip of tea.

Preparations for the opening of the store went very smoothly.

In fact, a massage parlor is not an industry that requires a lot of preparation to open. It didn’t require high-tech medical equipment like a hospital, nor did it need cooking and drainage facilities like a restaurant.

The only thing that can be called a special facility is a massage bed.

The rest is just basic facilities such as counters and waiting room seats, electronic products such as air purifiers and air conditioners, and decorating the interior.

If you have a special request… … .

“Could you show me your license as a masseuse?”

“Here it is.”

It would have been about a nationally certified masseuse license, but it was no problem for Kang Tae-han, who already had a license.

When the employee who was looking at the business report he had submitted reached out and said, Kang Tae-han took out his masseuse license from his wallet and submitted it to the front.

‘I never thought the license I got 60 years ago would help me this far.’

Kang Tae-han was a freshman when he had just entered college.

Kang Tae-han was a little discouraged by the complaints of his seniors that it was so difficult to find a job in the sports medicine department, but just in time, he saw an article saying that masseuse licenses were allowed for ordinary people, and he started preparing right away.

I took a leave of absence in the middle and put off the enlistment for a while, preparing for about three years to get the license.

At that time, I had some doubts about whether I had to go this far, but thanks to that, I was able to work as a masseur like this now.

No matter how good your massage skills are, you have to take at least 2,000 hours of classes to complete all the courses required to obtain a nationally recognized license… … .

At least, it would have been impossible to get a massage job as soon as I returned from Moorim to modern times.

‘No, if that was the case, Seonghyeon wouldn’t have recommended a massage job in the first place.’

Since Choi Seong-hyeon followed Kang Tae-han and obtained a license, he would not have started working as a masseuse first, nor would he have recommended Kang Tae-han for a job.

If so, what would have happened?

Maybe he was doing something other than massage.

As I thought for a second, I could be in the UFC, or I could be a pro in another sport… … . If I had, I would have lived a completely different life than I do now.

‘But it must have been no fun.’

Even if you do martial arts, you can’t do your best, so you should always adjust your strength and watch it moderately, so what fun would there be in that?

“Here, what did you write the Chinese characters behind?”

Meanwhile, an employee who was looking at Kang Tae-han’s license and sales report pointed to the box where the company name was written on the report with a ballpoint pen and asked. Kang Tae-han lowered his head slightly, looked at the tip of a ballpoint pen, and spoke in a low voice.

“This is Cheonma Massage.”

“Cheonma Massage… Oh, you just wrote the previous business name in Chinese characters again.”

“Yes, that’s right.”

“Hmm. That, you write kanji very nicely.”

The employee seemed embarrassed to take out a compliment for no reason, and started moving his hands busier than before. Kang Tae-han just smiled at that appearance.

“The report has been received, Kang Tae-han. We will contact you separately when the results come out.”

“thank you.”

Kang Tae-han lightly bowed his eyes and stood up. And as I was leaving, the phone started ringing. It was a phone call from Hwang, who came just in time.

[Uh, Mr. Taehan. How did the business report go?]

“Looks good.”

[…] Will the store name remain the same?]

Director Hwang paused for a moment before asking.

He advised that it would not be bad to name it in English, considering the connection with the hotel downstairs.

“Yes, I like this.”

Kang Tae-han’s answer was calm and firm.

Cheonma massage.

At first, I didn’t think much of it, but now I’m quite liking it because it seemed to encompass the two of me, the self who was active as a horse in Moorim and the current self who is active as a masseuse.

[Then, I’m going according to the boss’s will, well.]

The name of the store is chosen by the owner. Although he gave advice, he had no intention of interfering, so Chief Hwang did not take it seriously.

[Ah, but now I can tell the name of the store to customers who ask, ‘Where is Mr. Kang going?’]

It was a question that I have been hearing several times a day lately, so Chief Hwang said in a voice that seemed to be relieved.

“… Coach, where are we going?”

Read at noblemtl. com

Late morning on Friday.

A man sitting in the back seat of a taxi asked a man in the passenger seat. His voice sounded sleepy, as if he hadn’t woken up yet.

“I told you. I’m going to get a massage.”

At his words, the man sitting in the passenger seat, Song Nam-seop, spoke in a calm voice. Daesung, who is in charge of training for Wales, was on his way to Kang Tae-han’s massage shop with two players.

“… No, are you serious?”

“Is that why you woke me up?”

Daesung Wales’ Kim Ho-jeong and Choi Tae-goo.

They are Daesung’s representative battery combination, each serving as pitcher and catcher.

However, because of their age, they are the type of players who make the most of their accumulated experience rather than their physical abilities, and even that has become increasingly difficult these days.

“No, I didn’t. Coach, we’re not some kind of lively young kids, and if we can’t sleep like this, we won’t be able to play today.”

“Does the director know about this?”

Being old and physically weak means that it is very difficult to manage the condition of the body.

I thought something else was going to happen, but when I said that it really came out of the wind because of a massage, the two players came out with a backlash.

“The director ordered it separately. and… … .”

As if expecting such a backlash, Song Nam-seop spoke in a calm voice. However, there was a certain resentment inside.

“It’s a really hard-earned opportunity. Just trust me and come.”

Today there is a game in Jamsil.

Due to the director’s instructions, Song Nam-seop and several other employees had to call the massage shop periodically from several days in advance. I’m going to make a reservation in case a cancellation ticket comes out.

But miraculously, two seats came out in a row in the morning, and as soon as we made a reservation, the coaching staff went into the meeting.

Which of the players is the most efficient to receive a massage?

As a result, it was the combination of these two, Kim Ho-jung and Choi Tae-gu.

“No, what… If it’s the director’s order, I have nothing more to say.”

“It’s because we’re embarrassed. But I think you asked to go to a jjimjilbang somewhere earlier, didn’t you?

“right. I must have heard that too.”

“Once you visit, you will understand everything.”

Song Nam-seop spoke in a slightly tired voice.

Seeing the suspicious players, he felt a sense of déjà vu.

‘It’s like being a massage evangelist… … .’

Not too long ago, I had a long fight trying to convince director Shim Tae-yoon, but I’m in a similar situation to that time.

However, at that time, he continued to explain even in this situation, but now Song Nam-seop just kept his mouth shut at the right time.

It was because I knew from my experience as director Shim Tae-yoon that you wouldn’t believe it anyway, and that experiencing it yourself is the best.
