With the Time Shop, I Too Am the Greatest Conglomerate of All Time Chapter 80

Episode 80. Serpent.

Sungwoon Logic President Lee Byung-hoon nodded.

“After all, there was a micro-architecture already in mind.”

“yes. There is. But we can’t commercialize it right now. The structure is quite complex. Perhaps the foundry company’s process capability will need to advance one step before it can be made.”

President Lee looked at me with the eyes of a girl who fell in love with her first.

“ha. I’d love to see how beautiful this structure is right now, but I can’t do it now, right?”

“yes. I haven’t taken over Sungwoon Logic yet.”

“Then let’s take over. I would like to see the architecture at least one day earlier.”

“Well. But this boss. We didn’t talk about anything important before we took over.”

“Is it important?”

“yes. How much are you thinking about for the acquisition?”

“ah. look at my mind Let’s see, we’ve invested 20 billion won so far and 80 billion won is left as a company reserve, so the total is just 100 billion won. I will only take that much.”

one hundred billion

It wasn’t bad though.

Unfortunately, the money I had had already been spent.

“Well. I’m sorry, but can’t I pay the purchase price in arrears?”

The president’s expression turned strangely.

“..you must have received more than 400 billion won from drill sales so far, but did you use all that money?”

“How did it happen?”

“Whoa. I can’t help it. Fortunately, the money is not urgent, so I will receive the purchase price in arrears.”

“What. Director Kang is not a money eater.”

“Then we will make a contract, so please stop by Sungwoon Logic when you have time. You will probably be surprised when you come.”

“haha. Okay. I can’t wait to see how much better she has become.”

“Then see you then.”

#Washington DC, USA.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR).

Onetel CEO Craig Martin was personally the director of the USTR North Asia Bureau, which is in charge of Korea, China, and Japan.

“Chief. When will Super Article 301 be activated?”

Super 301.

Section 301 of the U.S. Trade Act regulates foreign trade practices that adversely affect U.S. trade and investment.

The President may take steps to eliminate these trade practices under this Act.

Super Article 301 is a law that further strengthened Article 301 of the Trade Act.

Empowers the US administration to take broader trade retaliation measures.

If a U.S. company petitioned the USTR for unfair trade practices in another country, the USTR could propose to the president to invoke Super Section 301.

“First of all, the USTR representative feels the seriousness of the matter. However, there are many political considerations to revive a statute that has already been suspended.”

Unlike Article 301 of the Commercial Act, which has a permanent effect, Super Article 301 has a fixed time limit.

It has already expired and is now ineffective.

However, even if the statute of limitations has expired, it can be revived by the president’s executive order.

Craig was planning to reinstate this decree, preventing the import of drill CPUs.

“I am well aware of that. However, if it goes on like this, the high-tech semiconductor industry in the United States will collapse from the ground up. Before that, we need to get our hands on it.”

“..is that drill CPU so intimidating that Onetel has to be so vigilant?”

“That’s right. Drill CPU is a product that has already implemented the technology that was originally thought to be available in 4-5 years. It’s embarrassing to say this, but I think it will take at least two to three years for even our Onetel to catch up with the technology. But by that time, drills will already dominate the United States, and the system semiconductor industry in the United States will disappear without a trace.”

Onetel still maintains more than 70% of the CPU market share.

It was an expression with a lot of exaggeration in that Wontel is not the only system semiconductor company.

Originally, the lobby was supposed to be like this.

“I understand the situation. Please wait a little bit though. It’s only been a few years since I’ve driven Korea with a car case. It’s not good to corner our allies too much, so we need a little more time.”

Craig, who thought that this could not be the case, took out the number he had prepared.

“You’ve been in the USTR position for two years now, haven’t you? I think it’s time to slowly enter the White House. The position of director is not a light one, but a patriot like you has to do something more important. We will actively push our Wontel.”


The director looked interested, but then shook his head.

“Hmm. If you’re doing it because of this, you don’t have to. Regardless of my will, the work will proceed according to established procedures.”

‘In my mind, I was wondering what kind of rice cake this is. You want to save face, right?’

In fact, what Craig wanted to avoid the most was to follow the established procedure.

I don’t know how many years will pass if I keep going like this.

He advised again.

“I am not doing this because of this. These are words from a pure heart only for America. It is only when there are many people like you that the United States can continue to remain as a strong country.”

The chief’s head finally nodded.

“I did not know that Mr. Martin had such a great love for America. I can’t stand still when this patriot is in trouble. Let’s find a way to speed things up a bit.”

“Thank you for your understanding. Chief.”

“no. All of this is for the benefit of the United States, so it is only natural to actively help.”

Craig looked at him and smiled.

“haha. It’s also a patriotic statement. So, how about a simple dinner with the patriots in the evening? I made a reservation for a good restaurant.”

“Look, I don’t have any plans today. That’s how you do it. haha.”

The night of conspiracy surrounding the drill went so deep.


Taesung Group Chairman Joo Kang-jin’s office.

Chairman Joo looked at his fortune and smiled.

“Come on. Director Kang.”

“How you doing? President. What made you come today? At that time, the bet will still have a deadline.”

“ah. I didn’t call you for that bet.”

“Let’s do one thing with me.”

“Is it work?”

“okay. If you do it right, I’ll make the bet that Director Kang wins.”

“If that’s the case, I think it’s a pull. What’s going on?”

“I know that U-Market is hot these days. That You Market! Let Isa Kang take it down. Totally, to the point where it is difficult to revive.”

It was an unexpected word.

“Hmm. Why is the chairman interested in U Market? Did the CEO of You Market take any money?”

“It would be nice if that was the case. Not yet. That’s why I called Director Kang.”

“..you seem to want a situation where you can’t pay your money back. Do you think you took it as collateral?”

“haha. After all, it’s good that I don’t have to talk long when I’m having a conversation with Kang.”

“Invested 50 billion won in that market. Is this money from the president?”

“okay. To be precise, the guy who borrowed money from me invested 50 billion won in U Market.”

Jaewoon then realized how things were going.

‘Yang Woo-jin borrowed money from Chairman Joo, and it seems that something important was taken as collateral.’

Jaewoon thought for a moment and then opened his mouth.

“There’s no way you’re going to crash U-Market right now. We, too, have no choice but to burn money by using discount coupons, but that bleeds too much. I’d rather bet the president with 10 billion won, and it’s a lot more business to give it away.”

“..is there really no way?”

“There is no way to make it go bankrupt right away, but you can take things in the direction the president wants.”

“If you say you can’t ruin it, how?”

“I can’t do that, but if I just hold on like this, the president’s purpose will be achieved. The U market, which is releasing discount coupons right now, will run out of funds quickly as time goes by.”

Chairman Joo fiddled with his chin and then nodded.

“It’s not wrong. Then do it like that. As long as you hold out well, I will make your bet a winner.”

“I want to do that, too. The problem is that it takes tens of billions of dollars just to survive. I don’t have any spare money right now. There is nothing I can do about losing market share.”

“I will lend you any money.”

“Chairman, money? That’s a bit tricky. Aren’t you going to be able to breathe properly because of the interest?”

Chairman Joo narrowed his eyes and looked at the fortune.

“This is a guy with 10 serpents inside. Are you saying you want to lower the interest rate now?”

“yes. If you lend me a loan at bank interest, I will give it a try.”

Actually, I had spare money.

I don’t know what the situation will be in the future, so the more money, the better.

President Joo shook his head.

“..I didn’t know that there would be people in my life who would ask me to borrow money at a bank interest rate. I didn’t even know that I would be okay with that condition.”

It meant consent.

Fortune spoke.

“thank you. You said that you would help me like this, so I’ll hold on to it. So that the president can get what he wants.”

Even if it wasn’t at the request of Chairman Joo, I had no intention of watching the market share decline.

“okay. Even if you meet these conditions, never give up easily. If that happens, I will be truly disappointed with Director Kang.”

Jaejoong smiled brightly.

“haha. You will never do that.”

#end of July.

Deputy director Park Si-woong, Dae-won’s brother, and me were three people gathering and having a meeting.

“Master Park. How is the reaction to the auction event?”

“very good. At the start of the event, the number of visitors more than doubles, and sometimes even triples.”

“I’m glad it worked. So, this month’s results must have been good. right? president.”

But Daewon-hyung shook his head.

“That’s not it. Our mall share has dropped again this month.”

“..how much?”

“5%. Now, all of us, the share of shopping malls is about 65%, and U Market is about 30%.”

“Hmm. By opening the API, the number of external partners has increased considerably. But has our share decreased? No matter how much discount coupons are sprinkled on U Market. I don’t quite understand.”

“He said that was it. 30% is not enough, so now we are giving away 50% discount coupons. That’s enough for me to be a consumer, too.”

“..50%? Well. That’s enough to say that he was prepared to lose a lot. It looks like you just ignorantly decided to push it with money? Then we can’t stand still. Let’s pay it back with money.”

“Shall we give out discount coupons? Well, that’s probably the only way. Only consumers will be upset because of You Market.”

“no. I’m going to spend my money in a way that will help me in the long run, and pouring it into short-term marketing such as discount coupons is foolish to eat away my flesh.”

“okay? So what are you going to do?”

“Shall we sell our clothes?”
