Chapter 22: Chapter 22

As a matter of fact, Yonggu’s response was unexpected to him.

Hyunwoo knew that Yonggu didn’t like him, but hadn’t Hyunwoo averted his crisis? Hyunwoo saved him from a difficult situation last time. If Hyunwoo hadn’t stepped in at the right time recently, Yonggu would have found himself in a very difficult position in the president’s presence. In a way, Hyunwoo saved him as a way to reconcile with him. He didn’t know why Yonggu hated him so much. Still, he reached out to him first.

Nonetheless, Hyunwoo could not find any trace of appreciation from him, which made him regret having treated him so nicely.

Hummmm… maybe I should have let him get axed? Hyunwoo thought to himself.

But it’s all water under the bridge now. He erased everything about Yonggu from his memory.

What he was faced with at the moment was how to persuade the suppliers.

However hard he thought about it, it was still something challenging. Could they accept a new hire like him making such a request out of the blue?

He felt that it wouldn’t be easy. Come to think of it, the team manager made sense when he talked like that. Hyunwoo was mistaken when he asked a favor of the manager even without trying it by himself.

“Okay, sir. Let me wrestle with it harder,” Hyunwoo said.

Taking back the file, Hyunwoo sat down at his desk.

There was no other way for him to claim the refunds without obtaining the certificates from the suppliers.

‘Okay, let me confront them first.’

Hyunwoo obtained a list of suppliers and called them one by one. What he requested was simple.

“Can you issue a certificate on your company’s material supplies to us?”

Their response was what he had expected. They had no knowledge of it at all.

“Certificate on material supplies? What is that?”

Hyunwoo explained it to them calmly. Skipping all the complexities involved, he told them in a way that all they needed to do was issue just one certificate.

The presidents of the suppliers consented without any objection.

But the real problem was they need to go through the process first before issuing the certificates, and that was not as easy as one thought. They just shook their heads when they were faced with joining Unipass with the company’s certification letter.

“Certification letter? Unipass? Customs? Why is this so complicated? Do you want us to do it on our own? Why are you asking us, who know nothing about it, for it? You should ask us for something we’re familiar with.”

“Once you process it for us, you can do it easily next time.”

“Next time again? Do you mean we have to continue to do it? You won’t raise the unit price even if we do it for you, right? Oh, I don’t know.”

He felt that it was not easy to persuade them over the phone.

“I have to go out for a business trip, manager,” Hyunwoo said.

“Business trip? Where?”

“I can’t persuade them of the certificate over the phone. I think I have to meet and persuade them directly.”

Yonggu then suddenly raised his voice, challenging,

“You’re not going out for your own business, right?”

“How could I? If you check with the suppliers, you’ll find out immediately if I’m lying or not. Let me come back as soon as I’m done.”

“By what time can you come back?” Yonggu asked as if he were pressing him.

The manager raised his hand to stop him. Even though he trusted Yonggu, there was no reason for the manager to stop Hyunwoo, who said that he was going out on a business trip for the refund.

“Okay. Just go ahead. You can come back late, so persuade them well.”

“Got it.”

Hyunwoo went out of the office, heading directly to the suppliers to persuade their presidents.

“It’s not that difficult as you think. All you have to do is just apply online and fill out the form.”

“It might be easy for someone like you who knows about it. I don’t know. I’m so busy.”

At Hyunwoo’s mere mention of the certificate, they just got cold feet. Even though he said he would help them process the application, they just refused it. He felt that there was no other choice but to seek the team manager’s help. That was the last resort. But he felt it was not good to dump it on the manager at this point. He wanted to resolve the problem without any misunderstandings between him and the manager.

What should I do? Who should I ask?

Suddenly, one person came to his mind. The best expert on this kind of matter would be the customs officer in charge of the refund.

The following morning, he visited the customs office. Though Yonggu complained again about his business trip, he came out of the office confidently. As a matter of fact, it was Yonggu who had him go out for a business trip to the customs broker and customs office. If Hyunwoo could not handle it properly because of Yonggu’s bluffing, it would drive him into a more difficult situation. Even if Yonggu stood in the way, he would have to deal with it to the end and get things done.

When Hyunwoo visited the customs office, Kwak greeted him with a bright smile. Kwak had already got the burden of the refund collection off his chest, and he seemed to feel closer to Hyunwoo after he stopped by with snacks the other day. The same was true for Hyunwoo. Though he felt Kwak’s first impression was icy, the more he saw Kwak, the more he felt this customs officer had a tender heart.

“Watermelons are in season these days. I bought a cold one, so you can have it right now.”

“Wow, why is this watermelon so big?”

A manager behind Kwak asked, looking at them, “What the heck is that watermelon?”

“I’m an employee with Aurum, sir.”

The manager made an embarrassing expression and said, “Oh, we can’t take it carelessly.”

Kwak hesitated for a moment. He could not disobey the manager’s apparently disapproving remarks, but it was discourteous to return the watermelon to him.
