– Volume 2 Episode 3
It was embarrassing that he had made a lot of money by lying, and it was embarrassing that he was so anxious to brag about it again.
It didn’t feel bad to watch the people who rejected him regret it like a dog chasing a chicken, but there were too many words.
Already following Seok Woo-won’s party, his face has sold quite a bit.
It was a specification to be treated as a stick because it was known that he was a duelist.
I don’t know if I received a reply message or not because I had refused to receive it, but the post was deleted immediately.
When the article disappeared, people wondered why it was deleted.
Most of them responded that they had deleted it because it was a masterpiece.
Even the comments below it were deleted, so it would be impossible to know if it was true or not.
The time the post was posted was also short, about 20 minutes.
Thinking that it would probably be forgotten as if it had never happened, Jeong Dae-sik stopped writing about party recruitment.
Also, people who had sent more than a hundred notes while I was writing might start running at me, and I thought there was no need to hire a dealer here.
I just wanted to go out in front of Seoul Station like today and collect it in moderation so it would be more convenient.
Jeong Dae-sik, who turned off his laptop and lay down, turned on the TV as he had nothing to do.
After circling the channel playing the silly entertainment program several times, the remote control stopped at the news channel.
Choi Hee was there.
She was talking to a reporter asking for an interview about the recent Monster Break.
– I wasn’t the only one who fought against the monster that day. As a result of the efforts of several unknown hunters, the sacrifice was greatly reduced. Most of all, the courage of a Hunter to save several citizens from the bus was astounding. If we were all like that hunter, we would be able to deal with whatever the future holds.
It looked like it was an impromptu interview, but the answer was clear as if he had memorized it.
Choi Hee, who is called a superstar, has always been good at interviews.
Not only did he answer any question with a stream of water, he would always throw a smile at the camera that looked like fan service at the end.
I couldn’t help but fall in love with anyone.
Seeing this, Dae-sik Jeong unconsciously admired it.
‘A hunter like that will make a lot of money, get respect from people, and enjoy life in the world, right? How would you feel if you had that skill?’
With a vague curiosity, he looked at the screen as if he were doing something else.
Then, at dawn, I fell asleep.
Chapter 9. Temporary Operators
Jeong Dae-sik headed to Seoul Station before sunrise the next day.
As always, it was crowded with hunters.
It was quite chaotic as even citizens who left early on their way to work were mixed up.
Even taking that into account, it seemed that there were an unusually large number of people today.
A group of people wearing expensive equipment, which is rare to see, were standing there, or people wearing loud clothes that looked like they had written ‘I am a hunter’ passed by.
Jeong Dae-sik looked around and thought.
‘What day is today?’
I didn’t understand English, but someone tapped me on the shoulder from behind.
Looking back, to my surprise, it was Ki Cheol-min.
He didn’t think he would pretend to know him first, so Jeong Dae-shik was quite surprised.
Ki Chul-min said with a trembling expression, as if it was all revealed by his expression.
“What are you so surprised about?”
“No… I can’t help but be surprised.”
Jeong Dae-sik looked at him and frowned.
“I thought you wouldn’t want to mix words with me.”
I wondered if he had a serious heart after seeing his skills yesterday.
Ki Cheol-min grumbled while feeling alert.
“That’s right. But what I did was wrong, so I wanted to apologize.”
Ki Chul-min sighed and said.
“It was my mistake of judgment that I had underestimated you until now.
It was really surprising.
Ki Cheol-min, whom Jeong Dae-sik knew, was a rare person who only built up his own self-esteem.
However, when he docilely admitted his mistake and apologized, I wondered if it was the same person.
Perhaps yesterday’s events had a significant influence on that.
Realizing that his skills were not a lie, but the truth, he changed his attitude.
It may be a masterpiece of staying close and taking care of it, but Jeong Dae-sik knew well that it was not easy for a stubborn and proud person like Ki Chul-min to do this.
There was nothing particularly good about pretending to be with someone, so Jeong Dae-sik accepted Ki Cheol-min’s apology with the generosity of a strong man.
Once I did that, I felt an eerie vibe.
Jeong Dae-sik asked why the crowd in front of Seoul Station was noisy today.
“By the way, why is it so loud? Is something going on?”
Ki Chul-min had a look of shock.
“You really don’t know?”
“I don’t know.”
In response to his carefree reply, Ki Chul-min added a complaint without fail.
“Because I’m a beginner in a place like this. How important is information to a Hunter!”
“So, what’s going on?”
“How long ago was there a monster break?”
Recalling the day when all kinds of monsters ran wild outside the dungeon, Jeong Dae-sik opened his eyes wide at Ki Cheol-min’s words.
“Now that there are several new dungeons, it’s time to get dangerous.”
“You mean nuclear destruction?”
“I don’t know what the nuclear regeneration cycle is for newly created dungeons. In the case of small dungeons, they explode at the earliest between a fortnight and a month, so we need to hurry up and attack. So, it seems that an official notice from the Ministry of Public Safety and Security has been distributed to each raid. ”
Ki Chul-min took out his cell phone and showed him a capture.
It was a document taken from a document considered to be an official document of the Ministry of Public Safety and Security.
There, the location of the newly identified dungeon and a request to attack quickly were written there.
“In the initial attack of the dungeon, there is a high possibility of obtaining new resources. In addition, it is possible to receive a small subsidy from the government, so the raid team, which was measuring the time while conducting a preliminary investigation, went to attack.”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded and said.
“The raid is coming out to find a dealer to use as a shield, so it’s such a commotion.”
Ki Chul-min snapped his fingers.
“Shield! That expression is exquisite. That’s right. Entering a new dungeon you can expect a jackpot, but the risk is high because you don’t know what’s lurking inside. Sacrificing the crew is costly, so we use the advance payment as bait for idiots like us. They’re trying to hire scoundrels to lead the way.”
Ki Cheol-min, who said that, immediately noticed Jeong Dae-sik and changed his words.
“…a idiot like me.”
He was already well aware that Jeong Dae-sik was not on the same level as himself.
Jeong Dae-sik said with a smirk.
“Then you won’t follow that?”
Ki Cheol-min scratched the back of the head nervously as if he was very worried.
“I don’t know. I got kicked out of the dragon party and I have to look for a new place, but if you follow a place like that and make a mistake, you won’t be able to find the real deal and it is likely to cause a lot of trouble.”
At Ki Cheol-min’s words, Jeong Dae-sik immediately asked a question.
“Get kicked out of the dragon party? What does that mean?”
Ki Cheol-min said with a sarcastic look.
“I heard a lot of resentment for kicking you out yesterday. Shin Geum-ju’s girl made a fuss saying that she couldn’t be with me in the future. In the end, Yong Dae-hyung kicked me out. Shin Geum-ju is a wizard. Because it’s worth it.”
“So, are you ready to apologize to me?”
Ki Cheol-min shrugged at Jeong Dae-sik’s blatant question.
“What’s the benefit of blushing with a guy like you in a situation where there’s nowhere to go? It’s better to be friendly, right?”
Ki Chul-min’s answer was honest and shameless.
In the eyes of Jeong Dae-sik, he was neither a bad person nor a good person.
However, he was just a character who was completely driven by his own interests.
That must have been the reason why he was nervous about Jeong Dae-sik in the first place.
Ki Cheol-min’s personality was also in line with Jeong Dae-sik’s thoughts.
I was thinking that he might be a surprisingly good opponent, but Ki Chul-min continued.
“Even so, I’m about to meet someone here.”
“Are you talking about the official raid?”
“Yeah. Someone I know decided to let me go. From what I heard, the conditions were pretty good.”
“What are the conditions?”
Ki Chul-min smiled.
“The advance payment alone is 100 million.”
Jeong Dae-sik was quite surprised.
“Is it 100 million in advance?”
“That’s right. Isn’t it worth it?”
Jeong Dae-sik shed an exclamation because he thought that the hole scale was really different.
If the down payment is 100 million, it means that even if you go to 10 dealers, the money of 1 billion is just broken.
Moreover, the advance has nothing to do with the success of the attack.
Even if you fail on the way and come back from the dungeon, it is the money you receive unconditionally.
If the attack succeeds and destroys the nucleus, you will receive a greater reward.
“And as long as you get out of there safely, you can make a big contribution. If you want, you can be beaten by the crew, or you can share the profits from the dungeon, or else, you can invest the resources you get from there with your share. yes.”
“Which of the three do you like best?”
In response to Jeong Dae-sik’s question, Ki Cheol-min thought deeply and said.
“That’s different for each person. If you’re in a hurry to get cash right now, it’s better to get paid for it. Just spending one day in the dungeon is 5,000, so it’s 350 million in just one week. Of course, it’s impossible to give up halfway. The second method is better. Usually, the resources you get from the first attack are usually given a high price. It just takes a long time to set the price and settle. It takes up to a year. Instead, you get paid per day. You’re more likely to earn more than that.”
“The last one is not a jackpot or a bummer. It’s an investment in research and development to see how the resources obtained from the new dungeon will be used. And if it’s useless or impossible to commercialize, you’re just throwing money in the air. Of course, it takes years and years to get real profits.”
