Chapter 242: Chapter 236

Hyunwoo said the same thing at the KOVE DREAM office.

“Don’t argue pro and con about the comments. How thankful it is for them to post comments like this? When we see their frank comments, our students can also grow. If you keep grumbling like this, I won’t release the comments next time,” said Hyunwoo.

He also put spurs on developing a new short story series. He hosted another story contest through Story Mecca.

Jonghyon Yuk began to develop story material finally.

Jonghyon worked at the KOVE warehouse during the day and headed back to the office of Ani & Funny in the evening, working twice as much as others.

But he didn’t seem tired at all. It looked like the endorphins caused by his creative work made him strong. Creation was kind of invigorating drink to him.

Of course, Hyunwoo made sure Juhwan adjusted Jonghyon’s workload.

In the past, Hyunwoo delayed development of new works because of insufficient workforce in the field, but he had no reason to do so now. He could find any number of people from the Ani & Funny internet cafe.

The students had no time to take a break. They had to make storyboards on animation movies and make the short stories submitted through the contest animation works.

Besides, they also had to continue to work on Tuti & Angelica animation series.

In other words, they were doing triple work.

But each student had 30 internet cafe members on their teams. As the team members continued to work, they became more and more experienced enough to finish their assignments on time.

The new animation works they completed were sent to the Vietnamese branch for webtoon production.

This time Hyunwoo had his staff evaluate the finished webtoons. And he allowed them to post comments freely. On the other hand, he called together the students he used before and instructed them to post hate comments secretly.

The only difference from the previous round was that their hate comments were posted in real-time.

Of course, Hyunwoo did this with Yenam in mind, so that Yenam could freely post his own comments like he used to.

After ordering his staff to make an evaluation, Hyunwoo secretly watched Yenam’s evaluating process. He also watched Yenam’s reaction and ranked each work on behalf of Yenam.

Another evaluation was done.

Hyunwoo could get what he expected. It was Yenam’s hate comments. Given his comments, Hyunwoo could realize how deeply he was absorbed by the webtoons.

Hyunwoo clenched his fist and mumbled.

Great. I don’t have to sit behind his back and watch him secretly.

He continuously sent the animation works to the Vietnamese branch.

Ngun, its chief, complained.

“How can we make all these stories into webtoons?”

“That’s why I told you to hire as many as possible, dude. If you feel it will take a lot of time, start working on the best short story first.”

“Phew… Got it.”

Hyunwoo left the details to Kyungsu, expecting that Sanggyu and James Lee would assist with Kyungsu well.

Sometimes, he wished strongly to entrust James Lee with managing Ani & Funny, but he could not have full trust in him yet.

Hyunwoo was confident that Kyungsu would always be on his side, but he didn’t have the conviction that James would do the same. There was a real possibility that James leave Ani & Funny for his own interests at any time.

Hyunwoo stopped by the KOVE DREAM office again.

KOVE DREAM established itself completely. There were no outrageous mistakes like before. Those workers hired on a three-month contract were mostly rehired as full-time employees when their contracts expired.

It became dark already. Most of the employees got off work early, and only those assigned to the warehouse stayed to work late at night.

After having dinner with the night shift workers, he headed for Haenim School.

Though he was terribly busy, he visited the school almost everyday.

When he arrived, his father Duyoung welcomed him.

“Looks like you did a lot of great work these days, son.”

“Oh, not much. Way to go, Dad. How about your research?”

At his question, Duyoung gave him an unusual smile and led him into his research room.

Hyunwoo was momentarily surprised because his father had a cautious look for fear that someone might peek. It looked as if he had something to hide from others.

What is he up to now?

There was nobody in the room. Duyoung locked the door, so nobody could come in, and then showed Hyunwoo a video on his computer.

It was about carbon nanotubes.

At that moment, Hyunwoo recalled what he once had asked Duyoung to experiment with.

He gave his father the results of an experiment that Taeho Min wrote down in his failed experiment notes, which seemed useful in his eyes. It was about the contraction of a carbon nanotube. If Duyoung could make use of the contraction properly, he could turn the failures into success.

Apparently, his father produced some results about that experiment.

Hyunwoo came closer to the computer monitor.

Carbon nanotubes are very small, less than 0.1 nm long and 10 nm in diameter. It was impossible to see with the naked eye and could only be seen through the microscope.

What was seen on the monitor was magnified under a microscope.

Electrical stimulation was applied. As a result, the length of the carbon nanotube was greatly reduced. Approximately 10% or more seemed to have been deformed.

When electrical stimulation was eliminated, the carbon nanotube was then restored to its original form.

The electric shock was repeatedly given. Every time it did, carbon nanotube was decreased and stretched. Each time it showed a different degree of deformation.

“I changed the strength of the electric shock each time. I noticed that it shrank at a constant rate each time. It’s useless for solar energy generation, but I think I found the solution that you mentioned,” said Duyoung.

Then he continued to explain. “The key was the reactants and the strength of electrical stimulation. The rate of contraction varied, depending on what the reactant was and how strong the stimulus was.”

“The thing is what kind of use this has? I feel there might be some use for this, but I have no idea.”

In fact, Hyunwoo didn’t think about it in advance, nut he felt there must be some use.

There was one obstacle to overcome, though.

“How long can this contraction last? Does it continue to contract even if you repeat the same experiment thousands of times?”

“I haven’t yet done that. But whenever I apply electrical stimulation, there seems to be change in the reactants. I don’t think its durability is good.”

“Can you fix it? Let me think about how to make use of this.”

“Got it. But it won’t be easy, son. I’ve used various reactants, but the contraction didn’t last long.”

“Let’s do our best, Dad.”

“Sure. By the way, I’m tired. Let me go home early and take some rest.”

“Me, too. Let’s go home now.”

While he was driving back home, Hyunwoo hit on a terrific idea.

He stopped the car and looked at his father.

“Dad, I hit upon an idea.”

“What is it?”

“The method of making use of the contraction of carbon nanotube. You can use it as a car engine.”

Hyunwoo explained to him the principle of operation.

If the existing engine pushes the power shaft with the explosive power of fuel, carbon nanotube pulls the power shaft with strong contraction force.

Hearing his explanation, Duyoung giggled.

“Do you know how precious carbon nanotubes are? It costs hundreds of thousands won per one gram. And it’s hard to make an engine that small.”

“You can find the solution by mass producing it.”

“Lots of people are working on it now. But it won’t be easy to find the solution.”

Hyunwoo scratched his head, asking, “Is there any way to replace carbon nanotube material?”

“Well, I can’t think of it now. Let’s find out what it is.”

Hyunwoo started the car again.

When Hyunwoo arrived home, he unconsciously looked at Yu Zuung’s room in the dorm. For she brought snacks or soft drinks for him as if she were waiting for his arrival.

But today she was quiet.

Come to think of it, that was understandable. Hyunwoo usually came back home around midnight, but he came home early today with his father. She didn’t prepare in advance.

He looked at her room on the second floor of the dorm. He was aware of its exact location, too.

Her room was lit bright. Though other staff worked late at night, she always got off work early.

Of course nobody complained about it. Neither did Hyunwoo. He felt her leisurely working style could help her creative work.

She didn’t slack off, either. She was one of the most diligent staff he knew at Ani & Funny. Though she got off work earlier than anybody else, she didn’t waste even one second of her work time.

Even now she was dancing in her room. She was assigned as a dancer for the theme song of the music video ‘Temptation.’

Not just today but every day since she arrived in Korea she practiced dancing like that to prepare herself well enough as a qualified dancer.

Come to think of it, Jinhon was supposed to return soon. Though he was on a world tour with America as his central stage, he was set to visit Korea for a performance.

Hyunwoo set the day of Jinhon’s arrival as the D-Day of the release of the new music video ‘Temptation.’ According to Hyunwoo’s plan, Jinhon was expected to promote the music video.

And the situation was promising.

Jinyoung had been done with rearranging the song Temptation for a while and found a singer whose voice perfectly fit the song and finished recording it.

Hyunwoo and the teachers with Todolyipyo alternative school listened to the song.

They really felt good about it. It seemed as if the song itself could gain wide popularity even without the music video.

The dance had also been completed long ago. It was the very revised dancing style that Yu Zuung practiced very hard at home every evening.
