With the Time Shop, I Too Am the Greatest Conglomerate of All Time Chapter 26

Episode 26. Second gift.(1)

If you compliment me so blatantly.

…that’s so good.

“There is nothing special about me. But what makes me different from others is that I have a lot of greed. If you don’t get what you want, you can’t even sleep. I want it so much, can I have it? You get it by working hard and dying. ”

Including you, Kim Woon-jin.

As if my inner feelings were revealed in my eyes, President Kim took a step back.

“..Anyway, as you said, we will try to raise the yield (the ratio of normal products out of production) as much as possible by selecting people.”

“yes. Report every day how much the yield has gone up.”

This almost solved the pressing problem.

Now it’s time to take care of my sore finger Kyung-ah.

The next day in the school classroom.

Myungho grumbled as soon as he saw my face.

“It’s because you didn’t make palm trees during vacation, so your face is greasy? Was it that good?”

“My face has always been like that. you are? Did you study hard?”

“Hey, if I studied with this hair, what would it be? It was just killing time.”


That this child is also above average.

Thirties must be very thirsty, but it’s not normal to be able to endure it and stay strong.

“..this consistent bastard. Anyway, do you have time this weekend?”

“me? I’m always on time But why are you asking?”

“Would you like to go somewhere with me this weekend?”



Hearing those words, Myungho’s eyes narrowed.

“Cheongnyangni? oh my, this child. You’ve made up your mind not to suppress a man’s instincts any longer. ”

“What nonsense? We were talking about going to the redevelopment area together.”

“Redevelopment area? Why are you there?”

“I’m going to see my cousin, and I need you. It’s a bit of a dangerous place.”

“..a cousin who is two years younger? you live with her We just meet at home, do you really want to meet in that dangerous place?”

“There is a reason for that. Go there and you will know. So are you going or not?”

“..Of course, ma’am. What do you see as a man, Yoon Myung-ho?”

“Thank you. Then free up time on the weekend.”

that weekend.

Myeongho asked as he looked at the houses with the paint peeling off here and there.

“How long do I have to go? I think I’ve already walked 30 minutes.”

“Now we are almost there. You just have to go a little further.”

Although there was no electricity, there was only one house with a light coming from inside.

I stopped in front of the house.


The windows and doors were intact.

However, it was not a place for people to live.

I asked if the name was also strange.

“Is your brother really here?”

2 million won was enough to figure out where Kyung-a was going.

When I pushed the old iron door by hand, it opened with a squeaking sound.

When I went in and pushed the front door a little, it opened without force as if it wasn’t locked.

Myeongho looked into the room and frowned.

“…what are all these things?”

The room was filled with the smell of bond and cigarette smoke, making it difficult to breathe.

Some of the guys who looked younger than twenty were grinning with hazy faces.

Others were spewing white smoke from their mouths.

Kyung-ah was crying with her head buried in one corner.

Some guy was about to hit her, and his hand was raised high towards her.

Cheongnyangni redevelopment area.

This place was a kind of hideout where runaway students mainly gathered.

It was a redevelopment area, so there were many empty houses that no one lived in, and this was one of them.

I have been coming here

almost every day since I first came here led by my friend Seonji .

Kyung-a frowned at the cigarette smoke that irritated the tip of her nose.

“Hi-Hi. You open one too. Because it’s delicious.”

My friend Seonji, who was smoking next to me, held out a magpie.

Kyunga shook her head.

Seonji asked with a face that did not understand.

“Why do you come here every day when you hate cigarettes so much? Besides, your parents don’t even beat you like my dad did.”

I didn’t like it to come.

I really didn’t want to be at home.

I just come because I have nowhere to go.

From the time he was old enough to know something, he felt that the whole family revolved around his cousin, Jae-Woon.

When my mother made one side dish, she always made it mainly for the side dish that Jae-Woon liked.

Even when I brought school supplies, I always put the things of fortune first.

It wasn’t just this.

Even if he got 100 points on the test, it was the end of stroking his hair once.

When my fortune happened to hit 100 points, praises poured in from me saying that I did well or that I was amazing.

“I am a daughter, and that child is just a bloody man…”

It was as if the world had been lost.

He buried his face between his legs in the sorrow that rose from his chest.


A man who was smoking a cigarette looked at Kyung-a, probably because Kyung-a’s crying was annoying.

“This year is crying again. Hey, stop crying. Because I feel bad.”


As Kyung-a continued to cry without regard to her, the man got up and approached her.

“Ji Chang-ah. He’s basically a tearful kid. Just do it.”

Seonji, who was next to him, stopped him.

He ended up going all the way to Kyung-ah and patted her on the head.

“Stop crying. Aren’t human words like words?”

Kyung-ah still didn’t stop crying.

Eventually, the man called Ji Chang raised his hand.

“This bitch is real!”

Then the door opened and two men entered.

The slender-looking man among the two said, glaring at Jichang.

“there. Stop moving!”

Kyung-a looked at me, lifting her tear-stained face.

“..Jaewoon Kang.”

To be honest, this sight was also surprising to me.

I thought it would be at the level of just getting together with students, drinking beer and swearing at them.

It must be like this already.

I regret that I couldn’t come sooner.

Still, it wasn’t completely late yet.

Looking at Kyung-a, it seemed that she had not touched cigarettes or Bond.

The guy who raised his hand in front of Kyung-a looked at me and asked.

“What else are you?”

The guy ignored it and told Kyung-a.

“let’s go. Kyung-ah.”

“..why do you come all the way here?”

“Why? It’s our family.”

“..family? Don’t even fuck up. You and I are not family.”

“If you don’t have a family. Can’t I come pick you up?”

“..Of course. What does it have to do with not being family?”

“You may not care, but I do. So let’s go.”

I grabbed Kyung-ah’s wrist.

“Leave this. I mean let go what are you What are you doing to me!”

Kyung-a rebelled violently, but without hesitation, she grabbed her and dragged her away.

At that moment, the guy standing in front of her broke in, pushing my chest.

“This fucking bastard. did you ask what i am Did your ear canal get clogged? Why don’t you answer?”

When I looked into his eyes, the focus was blurred in his eyes, as if Bond had done it too.

‘Such a scumbag child. You dared to hit my brother?’

I could barely stand my fists coming out.

“stop. I don’t have that much patience.”

The guy grinned.

“Kuk. okay. Don’t hold back, who can stand it? Don’t hold back, you bastard.”

I ignored those words and pulled Kyung-a closer.

His face contorted and he swung his fist at me.

“This kid. do you ignore me back up.”

At that moment, Myeongho wrapped his left arm around his body and strangled him with his other arm.

Unlike when he was playing with me, Myungho’s arms swelled up greatly.

got it right

Did you say that such a thing is called rear naked choke in martial arts?

Looking at his stable posture, he seems to have practiced quite a bit.

The guy struggled, then limped.

Then Myeongho released his arms and laid him down on the floor.

“Hey, aren’t you dead?”

“Of course not, sir. Don’t you think I’ve done this once or twice?”

Also. In the future, I can’t be bothered with that guy.

I looked at Kyung-ah and asked.

“Are you going to keep going? By the way, even if you attack all the guys here at once, you won’t be able to win Myeongho.”

Kyung-a looked at Myeong-ho and I alternately, then gave up resistance.

I took her out and stopped at the nearest police station.

I drew the address of the house and explained it to you and left the police station.

Kyung-a was looking like an abandoned dog with nowhere to go.

I sent my name first and stopped by her at a nearby coffee shop.

He asked, pushing a cup of coffee in front of her.

“Do you hate me that much?”

“Don’t promise. When I graduate from high school, I will leave the house.”

It wasn’t just because of Kyung-a that she left.

After all, after graduation, I was planning to live near the company so that it would be easier for me to go to work.

“Your parents. I mean, I don’t want to take it.”

At that moment, Kyung-ah’s eyes fluttered.


“..why are you?”

“I liked how my uncle and aunt took good care of me when I was young. I knew you were hurt because of it, but I just pretended not to know. That’s why I’m sorry.”

“..if I said that, did you think I did it and even forgive you?”

“no. I don’t ask for your forgiveness. you don’t have to like me But just know that there’s nothing wrong with your aunt and uncle. They were so kind to me because I lost my parents at a young age. It’s not because they love me more than you, it’s just because they are so kind people.”

“So come back now. If I go out and you do this, your parents will be very lonely.”

“..Still, I can’t forgive you. Both you and mom and dad.”

will you come out like this?

“Do you like making clothes?”

Kyeong-ah’s eyes widened in surprise.

When I am reborn, I want to become a clothing designer.

Because I still remember your faintly smiling face.

“When I was young, I cut doll clothes, sewed them, and cut them again. You kept playing like that. You just see it.”

“But what does that have to do with you?”

“Go to college where the clothing department is. Don’t worry about tuition. And when I graduate, I’ll give you a job in the clothing industry right away.”

“..don’t say nonsense. I am well aware that my family doesn’t have enough room to pay tuition for two people at the same time. So you’re saying you’re going to give up college?”

“Why did I give up college? i’m going to college Seoul National University.”

Kyung-ah smiled as if it wasn’t funny.

“under. What is Seoul National University doing with your grades? It would be nice if it was in Seoul.”

“I’ve been ranked first in the entire school this year. The middle of the first semester and the end of the semester.”


“It is up to you whether you believe it or not. Anyway, I’m going to Seoul National University and I made a lot of money. I can pay for your tuition without any problems.”

Looking at Kyung-a’s expression, it seemed that the hostility had diminished a little compared to the first time.

now would be good

I held out the weapon I had prepared to Kyung-a.

“..What’s this?”


“But why are you giving me this?”

“just. I haven’t done anything for you right now. I just stole it.”

“..I don’t need anything else. I don’t take it.”

“Then let it go. that’s up to you i go first Come in when you’ve cleared your mind.”

After saying that, I got up from my seat.

After leaving the coffee shop, I laughed as I saw the guy I hated looking at the wallet.

Game over.

The wallet itself is a popular brand product among students, so you can’t throw it away.

Above all, it will not be easy to continue to hate me even after seeing the 100,000 won in cash and the note I put in it.

– It’s pocket money. Don’t hesitate to buy what you need. My brother will often give it to me in the future.

“I will have breakfast too.”

The aunt who was preparing the breakfast table looked back and had a surprised expression on her face.

“Kyung-ah, what are you doing? You don’t normally eat breakfast, do you?”

“I don’t know. Just hungry since morning. So give me some food.”

Aunt nodded her head happily.

“I get it. he sits down Please give me the rice quickly.”

When was the last time 4 people ate together?

I think it’s almost the first time since Kyung-a entered high school.

It is said that bribery has never disappeared since the beginning of human history.

There was good reason.

It even makes my cousin who left home come back, but I have no choice but to use it.


At the beginning of this month in Yongsan, home appliances, sound and lighting equipment, which I had been watching until the end, eventually joined our shopping mall.

As a result, almost all of Yong-Dun’s products have entered our shopping mall.

Thanks to this, sales increased by 10% from last month, and net profit is expected to reach 1.2 billion won this month.

Domestic demand for P-32s remained at 800 per day.

The response of the P-32, which was sent to the bestseller last month, was so good that it was going out to the United States by 10,000 units a month from this month.

Thanks to this, Hicast turned to a profit last month, and it seemed that the net profit would be around 700~800 million this month.

Everything was going as planned though.

Daewon asked hyung because his expression looked serious as if there was a problem.

“brother? What’s going on?”

“Rather than what happened. The atmosphere is strange these days.”

“How’s the mood? What mood?”

“You said it. Convert all cash you have into dollars. So I’m changing everything except the operating funds, but suddenly it’s hard to get dollars. The exchange rate has also risen a lot.”

but. Now is the time to start showing signs of it.

“I believe everything you say whenever possible, but honestly, I couldn’t believe that the country would go bankrupt. But again, I think you are right.”

“Absolutely. I am always right.”

“..I’m not lucky, but I’m even more pissed off that it’s not wrong.”

“Fufu. Just accept it. Then it will be convenient If you can’t get dollars, buy gold instead.”

“Gold? why? Do you think the price of gold will go up?”

“no. The price of gold will continue to fall.”

“But why buy gold?”

“It’s going down in dollar terms. As the won-dollar exchange rate rises much faster than the gold price falls, the gold price will eventually rise as much as in Korea. Plus, gold can be exchanged for dollars at any time.”

“I know what you mean. So, from now on, don’t turn all the remaining money to buying gold.”

Not long after, I received a call from Highcast CEO Kim Woon-jin that it was difficult to obtain dollars.

I said the same thing to him and looked out the window.

‘It looks like it’s going to rain today.’

The dark clouds that covered the entire sky seemed to show the future that was to come, and I even felt eerie.

Still, I did everything I could.

I have prepared an ark for my people to escape in preparation for the great flood called the IMF.

Live ammunition was also prepared for use in the war to be fought after the flood.

Now we just wait for the time to come.

November 19, two days before the IMF financial crisis.

I was heading to the SAT exam center with a sharp wind that was about to drop my cheeks.

“OMG. It’s very cold. Why did I forget this?”

Until this morning, I had completely forgotten that the day that the worst cold wave ever hit was in 1997.

I said my uncle would take me by car.

The thought of seeing the SAT again brings back memories, and I was told that I was walking to feel the mood of the day of the SAT, but then this division came into being.

“You foolish bastard.”

When we got to the exam hall, about half of the seats were already full.

When I sat down and looked around, the student in the seat next to me was looking at the textbook with a nervous expression.

When I saw that face, I thought, ‘I must have been in this place 25 years ago with a face like that.’ I laughed at the thought.

At that time, I think I was so nervous that I couldn’t even breathe.

Now I just felt obligated to do what I had to do.

‘but. I know all the questions and answers that will come up, but it would be weird to be nervous.’

Thus, the 1997 SAT exam began.

The test time for the language section, numeracy section I, numeracy section II, and foreign language section passed sequentially.

The moment I checked the answer to the last question in the foreign language area on the OMR card, I was sure of a perfect score.

When I came out, my uncle and aunt were waiting for me.

“uncle. pure lady. It’s cold. Sit in the car.”

uncle replied

“It’s not cold at all. Did you do well on the exam?”

“yes. It’s perfect.”

“Haha, child. I can’t even speak. let’s go Your aunt made a lot of delicious things at home.”

The aunt sitting next to me laughed too.

“Ho Ho. I really wish it was Anyway, it was hard.”

“yes. Oh right. uncle. Did you hand over all the notes you had?”

“Since you are a torch bearer, I gave you a discount and passed it all over, but the payment is still a bit of a waste. That’s why I lost three hundred dollars, kid.”

You stopped them from returning with 100 million debts with three hundred.

“Well done. Don’t worry, I’ll make up for all the damage you’ve lost because of it.”

“done. Those three bags put your mind at ease, but don’t worry about it. Let’s go by car. ”

That’s why I like my uncle.

Uncle’s hands, who took the lead, were frozen red from the cold.

At 10 pm on November 21, two days after the entrance exam was over.

Deputy Prime Minister Wuhan Han-yeol made an emergency announcement that he had decided to seek an IMF bailout.

The next day, on November 22, President Hong Young-san delivered a speech calling for us to work together to overcome this crisis.

The whole nation was in shock, but it was too late.

Since then, the stock price, which has never been high before, has continued to fall.

The won-dollar exchange rate soared without end.

Uncle asked me, showing me a bankbook with dollars stamped on it with a bewildered face.

– $453,200

“Are you sure you know this and ask me to pay the price in dollars?”

He nodded as if it was natural to his uncle’s question.

Uncle smiled in surprise.

“haha. How…how did you know that the exchange rate would soar so high?”

Because I saw it with my own two eyes.

country is going bankrupt

All the bills he was holding became pieces of tissue paper, and the face of his uncle crying in despair is still vivid.

“You got the IMF bailout in Thailand. In the eyes of foreign capital, Korea and Thailand are the same Asia. Are you worried about whether you will be able to get the money you borrowed? So I tried to get my loan back before it was too late.”

“But, does that have anything to do with the exchange rate?”

“The money was borrowed by banks and companies. It’s also in dollars. So I have to pay it back in dollars, but since there is no dollar in the country, it is natural for the exchange rate to jump like crazy.”

“Did that happen?”

“..you really predicted all that in advance?”

“To some extent.”

“no wonder. The reason you asked me to sell bills was because I knew it was going to be like this.”

“..I don’t even know. Uh, didn’t you tell me beforehand?”

“Would you believe me if I told you?”

“So I didn’t tell you. For the next month or so, the exchange rate will continue to rise. Keep it until then and exchange it. uncle.”

“..I never thought that I was lucky because I was old, but now I have changed my mind.”

“Do you change your mind?”

“okay. Where else could there be an uncle who has a nephew like you? I didn’t know that, but no one was as blessed as I am.”

Hearing this from your uncle

It is worthwhile to return

“Fufu. Did you know that now? uncle. Because you are a blessed person, you will live well for the rest of your life.”

“Thank you.”

It was December 1st.

In a public phone booth near the school.

There was a bang again and again, and I thought, of course, that there would be nothing this time as well.

I pressed the loan repayment button #1.

“Thank you for your sincere repayment. As a token of appreciation, a gift is presented. Please select a category.”

You’re finally here!

Is this a gift for hard work this year?

My heart started beating faster with anticipation.

ARS continued.

“Press 1 for the former, 2 for aviation, 3 for pharmaceuticals, and 4 for architecture.”

Hey, but why is the category different from the first gift?

“Please complete your selection within 5 seconds. 5 seconds. 4 seconds…”

Again this damn ARS didn’t give me time to think.

I instinctively pressed 1.
