Chapter 7: Strange People VII
“You won’t even say ‘hello’ to me now?” Min Woo said, his tone solemn.
“Yes, it’s been a long time.” Jin Woo answered faintly, forcing himself to smile.
He wanted to make the best impression.
‘Is it because you don’t like me?’ Min Woo thought. His eyes sank for a profound moment. It was a set of emotion comparable to Yoona’s.
No, no, no, no, no, no….
There must be a lot of things Lee Jin Woo did wrong.
Jin Woo sighed inwardly. He felt like he was going to die of stress before he was killed.
That’s right. Although beautifully scary, at least he could trust Yoona. Hopefully.
Yoona coughed slightly when she looked in Jin Woo’s eyes. Her lips parted and said, “Excuse me, the chairman is waiting.”
Jin Woo nodded and hurried out of the awkward position he had placed himself in. Danger was everywhere. Now he had to meet the chairman. He certainly would not be normal either.
Min Woo looked at Jin Woo’s back.
‘You don’t even know that your grandson has become a monster.’
‘He’s become abnormal.’
To Jin Woo, the characters in the novel were too extreme. It was quite difficult to describe a three-dimensional character. Moreover, their behavior was too extreme. Something hardly believable.
But wouldn’t it have changed a little since he’s now living inside a novel? Wouldn’t it be more of a reality? At any case, it seems to be a mixture of reality that he knows of.

The chairman’s office was spacious. Rather than office, Jin Woo felt as if he was looking at the courtyard of a mansion. Looking out the window, a panorama of the city was in full view. As he walked further inside the courtyard-like office, the view of the city had long turned to a mountain view.
If felt like the glass was a display of the near future.
This was expected to the leading technological company.
This is crazy money.
Looking at the pottery lying randomly on the floor, Jin Woo saw that its price ranged from tens of millions to hundreds of millions. That one potted plant had an appraisal price of 90 million won. Selling one of them wouldn’t cause the chairman to flinch.
90 million won, huh…
This kind of money was unthinkable for him in his past life. Jin Woo began to think of how unfair the world was for some reason.
“Are you here?” Said a gray-haired old man with strong physique.
When Jin Woo saw the old man, he could tell at first glance that he was the chairman, Lee Hee Jin. It was no exaggeration to say he’s a living legend in the business world and more so as the man who played a part in the World Legislative Association.
Chairman Lee Hee Jin was sitting on a pavilion in the middle of a garden. He looked at them with tender beauty as if he were seeing the beauty of the gods. Rather than being the chairman of one of the world’s top conglomerates, he looked much like a Daoist. He looked like the kind of man who thought that there were mountains beyond mountains.
Chairman Lee Hee Jin’s expression was solemn. “Do you not like that child?”
“What?” Jin Woo tried to think, but he couldn’t figure out what he was talking about.
“I’m talking about that child, Choi Hee Yeon. Didn’t you want to have her? I’ve even arranged…”
Choi Hee Yeon. She was a woman of one of the most prominent families in Korea. She was the daughter of the best swordsman amongst the sword-wielding users and a promising figure in Korea.
She’s a pitiful woman.
All the women involved in Lee Jin Woo’s life were pitiful, but hers, it was full of tragedy.
