Chapter 298: Chapter 292

“Hyunwoo Jang? Are you talking about Hyunwoo Jang of KOVE DREAM?”

“Yes. I have confirmed that Mr. Ha and Hyunwo have kept in touch with each other for a long time. What is more surprising is that you and I are their targets.”

Chulmo Kim tilted his head to one side. He had no idea what happened between Hyunwoo and Jungmin Hwang, but he had no personal grudge against Hyunwoo.

Why were they targeting him?

Momentarily, Chulmo’s eyes sparkled sharply. For he felt Hwang lied to him.

‘Jungmin Hwang, are you now entangling me in a dirty scheme?’

But he pretended not to know.

“Why us? Do they have any hard feelings against us?”

“No, they don’t. I hear they’re thinking of driving out corrupt politicians in the name of a just society.”

Chulmo’s eyes opened wider at that.

Come to think of it, Hwang’s explanation made sense.

For a long time, Ha emphasized the word ‘integrity’ in politics. And Hyunwoo tried his best to distance himself from politics as much as possible.

It was far from strange that Ha and Hyunwoo joined hands for that cause.

Chulmo frowned suddenly.

“Why are they trying to do such useless…”

“That’s not the point. Hyunwoo has already become the world’s richest guy as of last year. And it is certain that Ha is going to be the head of the ruling party. If this trend continues, our political life will come to an end.”

Come to think of that, it was really a serious situation.

Suddenly, Chulmo became impatient.

“What do you think we should do?”

“It’s inevitable for us to sacrifice some of our close junior Assemblymen. But we should never allow Ha to become our party’s head.”

Chulmo could understand what he wanted.

“Are you talking about the by-elections?”

“Right. When I step down, it’s certain that Ha will be the new leader. Then, he will try to nominate his own men as candidates in the elections. We have to stop that as much as we can.”

“It won’t be easy.”

“Well, it can be easy if we cause factional frictions within the party. And then we have to send our men as independent candidates to the elections and have them compete with Ha’s picks. None of them has any strong political base. If we do well, we can have our guys elected.”

Chulmo nodded.

“Sounds good. Let me help your efforts, too.”

“Thanks. I’ll get back to you later.”

After the call, Chulmo frowned.

‘Hyunwoo, how can you dare pull out a dagger against me?’

Of course, Hyunwoo was a business giant. No matter how strong a politician he was, he could not take him lightly.

He clenched his fist.

‘If one goes up a hill, one has to come down. Do you think you can keep rolling on like that? Let me make you go down a hill in your life.’

Several days later, the Prosecutor’s Office announced it would investigate the Munsik Choi list. As it was disclosed that several politicians had received kickbacks from the late Choi, the investigation was proceeding very quickly.

Many politicians were summoned for investigation, and several of them had to admit their dealings with Munsik.

But several politicians severely resisted the summon, but when the prosecutors requested an arrest warrant, they had no choice but to give up.

The incumbent Prime Minister was the first to have been arrested, followed by a governor. And several politicians were also arrested.

The names of those arrested corresponded with those mentioned by Mr. Ha.

The investigation was quickly wrapped up, about three months after Munsik’s suicide.

But the general people didn’t pay much attention to the investigation. And the press didn’t make a big fuss about it.

The reason was because everybody was sick and tired of that news. In fact, broadcasting networks broadcasted all kinds of news about the Choi list all day long for the past two months. Whenever they turned on the TV, they had to watch it on every channel.

It seemed that there had been no tangible progress in the investigation, which made the public sick and tired all the more. They even wished they could no longer watch the news about it anymore.

Then suddenly all the news about the list disappeared from the TV.

That’s what Chulmo Kim and Jungmin Hwang wanted from the start. As the public became more and more interested in the Choi list, it would put them at a disadvantage, so the two kept low profile in the meantime.

But Chulmo and Hwang began to rally politicians behind them for a comeback.

Suddenly, there circulated strange rumors in town.

“Did you hear that rumor? I’m talking about the arrested lawmakers. Is it true that Jungmin Hwang made them scapegoats for his own political interests?”
