p>Ju Yeong-Gi narrowed his eyes.


“How much?”

“…I ’m sorry?”

“How much are you gonna give me? The medical fees and for the car.”

Jun Yeong became flustered as he stared at Ju Yeong-Gi.

The latter cocked an eyebrow.
“What the hell, are you trying to mess with me or something? You said you ain ’t gonna get the insurance people involved here, right? In that case, should I get the receipts and make a claim to your accountant or something?”

“N-no, of course not.”

“So? How much?”

“Well, uh…
How about ten million[1]?”

“What the f*ck?! You think I ’m a beggar or something?! Y ’know what? Forget about the medical fees and whatnot, you come with me.
This hyung wants to take you oooover there just around the corner, so let ’s go!”

“N-n-no, wait! Twenty! Twenty million won!”

“Oh, is that right?” Finally, Ju Yeong-Gi stared back at Jun Yeong in a less threatening manner.
“Hah~, bloody hell.
People might think I ’m threatening you or something.
Smile, man.

“…S-sure thing.”

Ju Yeong-Gi wrapped his arm around Jun Yeong ’s shoulders and smirked deeply.
“Let me tell ya something.
You ain ’t gonna find someone as generous as me.
It ’s because I ’m such a nice guy that I ’m letting you go for so little, you get what I ’m saying? If it had been somebody else? Even your house wouldn ’t be safe, buddy.”

You are still a daylight robber! ’

That hunk of rust probably cost less than two million, yet this mobster demanded twenty million just because its doors got dented a bit.
Didn ’t that make him a robber who just happened to be unarmed at the moment?

Suddenly, the cafe ’s door opened, and Jo Gyu-Min quickly stepped outside.
“Mister Ju Yeong-Gi?”

“Mm?” Ju Yeong-Gi turned his head and smiled brightly at Jo Gyu-Min.
“Wowsers, Chief Jo! Didn ’t expect to see you here.
Are you also here to find Jin-Ho?”

Instead of greeting back, Jo Gyu-Min simply beckoned at Ju Yeong-Gi.
“Mister Yeong-Gi, can you come over here for a sec?”

“Mm?” Ju Yeong-Gi walked up while tilting his head.
Jo Gyu-Min began whispering something into Ju Yeong-Gi ’s ear.


Ju Yeong-Gi ’s cheeks twitched ominously while he listened.
Once the information sharing was complete, he slowly nodded in understanding.
“Aha, is that what happened?”

“Well, yes.

“I see, I see.
Well, now.
Don ’t you worry about a thing.
You can wait for me inside, Chief Jo.”

“I ’ll leave it to you, then.” Jo Gyu-Min briefly nodded, then stepped back inside the cafe.

Ju Yeong-Gi, now sporting a huge grin on his face, leisurely walked up to Jun Yeong before wrapping his arm around the idol ’s shoulders.
“Soooo, I hear your name is Jun Yeong.
Is that right?”


“Holy cow, so it is you.
You are that Jun Yeong, eh? Y ’know, I was planning to pay you a visit sooner rather than later.
But, hey! You ’re Jun Yeong.
The Jun Yeong! This thing called fate sure is a mysterious thing, isn ’t it? Don ’t you agree? ”

’What is this mobster even talking about now? ’

Ju Yeong-Gi suddenly grabbed the back of Jun Yeong ’s head, hard.
“Sooo, I heard that you said something about coming to see Eun-Yeong often from now on.
Really? That ’s great.
Great, I tell ya.
Cuz I like you, you see? So, I ’m happy to see you often, too.
The thing is, though, I ’ll be working as Eun-Yeong ’s manager soon.
Ah, wait.
You guys call her Se-Ah, right?”

Jun Yeong began shuddering at this explosive news.
“H-h-her manager, you say?”

This is good news, right? We ’ll get to see each other often now, riiight?” Ju Yeong-Gi cackled insidiously.
“See, when I heard that some creep was drooling all over my friend ’s younger sister, I was thinking of paying that fool a visit and helping him sleep with the fish in the West Sea.
Now that I got to meet that creep like this? I ’m pretty pleased about it.
I figured you ’d be a total loser—a jerkoff—you know? But now, I know you ’re a nice guy who is very willing to pay for my car ’s repairs.
That gives me a bit of a dilemma, you know?”

Ju Yeong-Gi ’s smile deepened as he stared coldly at Jun Yeong ’s pale face.
“So, I have a proposal for you.
Any thoughts of making a…

“D-donation?” Jun Yeong blinked his eyes in stupefaction.

“Yup, donation.
See, if only you were a tiny bit nicer person…
If that’s the case, I ’ll be a bit more understanding of your situation, you see? If you are unwilling, though? I no longer care about the repair fees or whatever, so you can just accompany me to that backstreet around the corner, and we ’ll have a quiet little chat in private.”

Jun Yeong ’s lips clamped shut like a clam.



The cafe ’s door opened, and Ju Yeong-Gi making a content face strode inside.
Jo Gyu-Min quietly asked, “What happened?”

Ju Yeong-Gi shrugged his shoulders.
“Well, let ’s just say he ’s not going to show up here any time soon.”


Jo Gyu-Min applauded as if he was greatly moved by this performance.
“Keuh~! And you haven ’t even officially started working! To think that you ’d take care of a big job like this so easily! Mister Kang really does have discerning eyes, doesn ’t he?!”

“Eheheh, thanks for the praise.”

Kang Jin-Ho chuckled while watching Ju Yeong-Gi good-naturedly wave his hand away.
Then, he addressed Jo Gyu-Min, “That takes care of that.
However, I don ’t like how that side ignored our warning and tried their luck again.
That kid is still immature, so he may not have realized the implication of his actions.
However, today’s event implies that his agency has decided to look the other way now, doesn ’t it?”

Jo Gyu-Min lightly bit his lip at that observation.
He was the one responsible for taking care of this nonsense.
However, the situation had unfolded in a way that made him look like an incompetent fool.

’Those damn punks…! ’

Another thing to note here was that Jo Gyu-Min didn ’t rely on his name, but Jaegyeong ’s to deal with this situation.
Yet the other agency still went ahead and did this.
Wasn ’t that the same as mocking the Jaegyeong Group?

’So, you want to have a go, is that it? ’

Jo Gyu-Min began gritting his teeth, but then…

“Mister Gyu-Min, please don ’t get involved in this matter anymore,” said Kang Jin-Ho.

“…Mister Jin-Ho?” Jo Gyu-Min, looking somewhat flustered, stared at Kang Jin-Ho.

“It ’s time I deal with this nonsense.” Kang Jin-Ho narrowed his eyes as he looked into the distance.

“…!” Jo Gyu-Min panicked slightly and urgently piped up.
“No, that won ’t do! Let me talk to them again.
I ’ll make myself clearer this time.
It seems that they haven ’t gotten the message properly, so I…”

Kang Jin-Ho ’s expression grew cold.
“I ’m sure you already know that ’s not how it is.”


“If words don ’t get through to them, I ’ll just make them listen.
In any case.
I ’ll handle this case, so you—”

Just as Kang Jin-Ho was about to announce his decision, Ju Yeong-Gi stopped listening and butted in.
“Nope, nope.
That ’s not how it works.”

“…Mm?” Kang Jin-Ho narrowed his eyes.

Ju Yeong-Gi frowned while explaining himself, “Hey, dude.
A boss man who always steps up to deal with every situation no matter how minor it is can be a total pain in the neck, don ’t you know that? Especially to the folks working under him.
Listen, Jin-Ho.
Now that you have so many mouths to feed, you gotta learn how to let people under you handle jobs like this and wait for the result.”

“…M-mouths to feed?” Kang Jin-Ho nearly tripped on his feet.

“Of course.” Ju Yeong-Gi sagely nodded away.
“A man should be aware of his station, dude.
Some people here chose their paths in life while trusting you, so you acting like a brat won ’t do anyone any good, know what I mean? Chief Secretary Jo here says he ’s gonna handle it, so trust him.”

“…Y-yeah.” Kang Jin-Ho involuntarily nodded after being pushed back by Ju Yeong-Gi ’s charismatic aura.

Jo Gyu-Min also expressed his gratitude by bowing his head a little at Ju Yeong-Gi.
However, his grateful expression soon transformed into that of a vengeful spirit as he yanked out his phone.
