EP 3 – Strategies for winning in a new era (1)
As soon as I got on the helicopter, it was Yeo Do-yeon’s collar that waited for me. Through the shaky sights, she could see her stern face, which was properly wrung out.
“-!! -! -!”
Her voice, buried in the sound of a helicopter engine, rings in her ear. I have a harsh impression around my eyes that others will only look at me wildly.
I smiled happily and accepted her concerns.
* * *
A student was abandoned in order to survive.
No, it’s a little too much to say that I threw it away.
did not rescue
Coincidence is such a mischievous thing, the guy I rescued was also a student. Anyway, where is the school uniform?
I smiled slightly and held out my hand to the student who had been on the helicopter for the rest of my life. He smiled broadly and grabbed my hand tightly with both hands and shook it.
She looked around with moist eyes. He looks relieved when he sees the military uniform. And started crying profusely.
I saw you ripping your chest,
seems to have lost someone
tock. tock. Representative Yang Pan-seok tapped my shoulder and handed me headphones with a microphone. Only then does the conversation happen.
“Whatever the intention is. You saved a life.”
If there was a monster inside the front door, or if dozens of survivors rushed out. The helicopter itself could have crashed.
“Emotional gambling is dangerous. I’m sure you’ll understand what I mean.”
“……yes. I will keep that in mind.”
“Goodbye. Let your shoulders bloom.”
Should the door be closed or opened? Is it a door that should open when knocked, or a door that someone has to open? I still don’t know.
“I’m on my way to the Gyeonggi-do Northern Martial Arts Command. They said there were a lot of people there.”
“Is it safe?”
“The monsters, the hole. Yeah, it looks like the hole is only in the center of Seoul. The damage is getting worse mainly in Gangnam, so they say the situation is worse in the north.”
I’m glad I went to a safe place.
I sighed in relief and looked over the helicopter.
We were gradually ascending to the sky in the rising morning sun.
I fell to the helicopter floor, fainting.
“hey! get off!”
I woke up to the voice of Yeo Do-yeon touching her cheek. The helicopter is on the ground. I surrendered myself to her hands.
Yeo Do-yeon didn’t even care about other people’s eyes and lifted me up. It looks like he’s about to eat half of it. I hit the back of the head, but it didn’t move.
shit. He was lifted up by the strange eyes of the soldiers. A soldier covered me with a blanket. Is this the taste of power?
Suddenly, I looked around the world from the rooftop heliport.
Smoke rises from the city in the distance, and loud gunshots can be heard from time to time in the air.
“A war broke out…”
“What a surprise.”
Yeo Do-yeon stopped and grabbed me straight and went inside the building with a gunshot.
The place where I was carried with a dreamy mind was somewhere in the break room.
Yang Pan-seok was talking to a certain soldier, and the rest of the party was draped in chairs.
The girl who had been sitting with a blank face barely got up with her trembling legs.
The girl greeted me lightly with a shy voice, then carefully grabbed my hand and waved it.
“Blood, Chaewon. It’s called a chaewon. Thank you so much for saving me.”
“no. student. Aren’t you hurt?”
“……yes. Thank you very much. Thanks to the legislator for opening it…!”
A severe headache followed as a blood vessel in the temple ruptured. wobble a little The world goes round and round
“Wait, are you okay?”
“Uh, uh. it’s okay. It’s because I can’t sleep…”
“Hey, maybe because of me…”
“It’s not like that, so don’t worry and take a good rest. Aren’t students and me alive after death?”
While the student was struggling with not knowing what to do, Yang Pan-seok’s call was heard.
Rep. Yang Pan-seok beckoned to the soldiers.
“Let’s go together. Oh, can you help me with that friend? My legs are uncomfortable.”
Soon a soldier came up to me and held out his hand. Seeing that he is wearing a rifle, I think this is a battlefield.
“Oh, it’s fine. Grab it and get up.”
One more soldier caught up before he was able to get up. I walked down the hallway as if I was half-entrained.
An old man who was talking to Yang Pan-seok greeted me.
“Nice to meet you, Senator. This is Cha Jae-gyun, the Vice Minister of National Defense.”
“Oh, this is Senator Han Seung-moon. Thank you very much for taking a look, Vice Minister.”
Deputy Minister Cha Jae-gyun? He led the way and informed the situation.
“The president passed away after designating the capital defense commander as the emergency martial law commander in the Seoul area.”
It was hot news from the start. The vice-minister frowned and walked in stride.
“The commander-in-chief is also dead.
The Prime Minister also passed away.
Next, the Minister of Strategy and Finance is acting as the president, but contact has been lost.
I’m not even looking down there.”
It means that there is no president in our country right now.
“The Minister of National Defense, who should supervise the martial law commander, is also out of contact. First of all, I am acting as Minister.”
This man is now the Minister of Defense.
And he was the overseer of the martial law commander.
In other words, now without the President and the Minister of Defense,
He was the commander-in-chief of the Korean military.
I was carried by the two soldiers and barely spoke to me. It’s time to flirt
“Now is not the time to check the protocol.”
“yes. The President is vacant, and the Ministry of National Defense is acting as my acting representative. And the martial law commander was a martial law coordinator.”
The deputy minister opened the door with all his might.
“This is where 1st Corps Commander Jang Kang-myung should take charge.”
He sat at the top of the empty desk and offered us a seat.
“Likewise, I decided to just do it because I was dead.”
Things turn pretty tough.
Cha Jae-gyun, Deputy Minister of National Defense
He served as the commander-in-chief of the military and martial law commander. He gestured for us to sit.
As the three of them were seated at the large table, the vice-minister blinked and bit the soldiers. The door closed, and the secret room was completed in an instant.
“We need your help.”
Cha Jae-gyun, Acting Defense Minister and Deputy Defense Minister and Martial Law Commander, quickly proceeded with the story, shining dark circles in his dark eyes.
speak fast A person who is pressed for time
“Of course, I am well aware that what I am doing now is somewhat extra-legal.”
“Communication is cut off, but it seems like a wise choice to blow up Seoul while looking for an agent.”
“This is Han Seung-moon.”
“Yes, doctor. You spoke well.”
Cha Jae-gyun, Acting Defense Minister and Martial Law Commander, explained to us.
“You may be wondering why I took the position of commander of the 1st corps, but I was appointed as the vice minister less than half a year ago, and up until half a year ago, I was the 1st corps commander, lieutenant general Cha Jae-gyun.”
where I used to eat
It was said that they were eating again because it was an emergency.
Patriotism or dictatorship? slightly ambiguous
“Of course, on paper, the martial law commander is a different person. All of them were my subordinates, so I have the de facto command.”
No problem legally. He blinked and asked if we were tired.
“What happened to the National Assembly?”
“The Capitol has collapsed and most of the lawmakers are missing.”
“There are dozens of deaths that I have confirmed. We escaped to Gangbuk and it’s crazy, but what happened to the rest…”
Deputy Defense Minister Cha Jae-gyun lowered his voice in a serious way and explained the situation to us.
“As this is a national emergency, we ask for your understanding for keeping it as simple as possible. I hope you agree to destroy Seoul.”
I didn’t ask why. That’s what this gentleman has to explain from now on.
“The enemy does not take prisoners. And the monster has already spread among 10 million people.
And I think we need to evacuate civilians and then bring in heavy weapons, with a siege set up to stop the monster from spreading any further.”
It was said that they were going to take people out of Seoul and then blow them up with a tank. Now, slowly, I get a sense of this yangban’s personality.
When it comes to being intelligent, it is quite tough.
“But the Ground Operations Command will remove heavy weapons and send infantry to retake Seoul while the people are evacuating their homes. Do you think the bullet will go through the monster?”
reasonable story. I made up his story.
“Are you talking about leaving Seoul and taking people out? Push it to the tank.”
“It is correct.”
“Jijaksa is about how to do well with infantry without hurting Seoul.”
“I don’t know the martial law commander, but is it not certain that the Vice Minister is now acting defense minister? Then the commander-in-chief of the military belongs to the vice minister, doesn’t it?”
Yang Pan-seok quickly caught on to the core.
“It’s the bottom line.”
The Deputy Minister nodded heavily, and Yang Won-won continued to speak while stroking his chin.
“You don’t want to bear the stigma that destroyed Seoul.”
“People are protesting against my order by evacuating their homes and recapturing Seoul with infantry. I wonder if the bullet will go through…”
I asked the deputy minister.
“Are you saying you want me to give you strength to persuade Jijaksa?”
Interpretation: Do you want me to take responsibility for poking around in Seoul?
“In summary, yes.”
shit. As soon as he escaped from the chaos, he was thrown into politics. That’s it, but my head hurts anyway.
The bishop asked.
“Should I really give up on Seoul? Maybe it’s going to be a disaster for the country. In fact, it is equivalent to throwing away half of the country…”
“Rather than throwing away Seoul, we are talking about destroying Seoul in the process of catching monsters. Besides, the monster-”
“No, no. We didn’t come here after hiding comfortably for a few days. I was chased three times in front of the monster.”
Yang Pan-seok clasped his chin with both hands.
“I don’t think it’s too harsh a judgment.”
The Deputy Minister bluntly listed the reasons.
“You do not know the number of enemies. If monsters pour out of the gate indefinitely, we may have to continue a semi-permanent war of attrition.”
“Second, as long as monsters are mixed with civilians, effective firepower projection is difficult. Getting civilians out of the battlefield is a priority.”
“Finally, the facility and Nabal, let’s save people first.”
The Deputy Minister gave us an operational agreement.
“It is not about ‘recapturing’ Seoul and ‘rescuing’ the people. I think it is right to ‘evacuate’ the people with Seoul ‘siege’.”
It’s only been three days since I became a member of the National Assembly, but I see everything. Deputy Minister Cha Jae-gyun pointed to the documents and smiled bitterly.
He even bowed his head deeply.
Give up Seoul. It was the sound of people going out and then smashing them all with tanks and self-propelled artillery.
I wasted my time asking meaningless questions.
“If you sign here, you become a traitor who abandoned Seoul. It is a very radical and hasty operation.”
“Then what are you going to do?”
Cha Jae-gyun is the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces. It is a person with a gun in a situation where all the upper-heads have been searched.
If you look at the original zombie movies, the person with the gun is the most powerful among the survivors. And that’s a sound that doesn’t change even at the national level.
Whether the Seoul evacuation operation succeeds or not, it is highly likely that Cha Jae-gyun will come to power.
Now, if Vice Minister Cha Jae-gyun empowers us to take full control of the South Korean military.
It didn’t take too long to decide.
“You have to sign it. Let’s save people first.”
Yang Pan-seok didn’t know that either.
“If someone has to do something, I will be happy to do it.”
Cha Jae-gyun took our signatures and disappeared somewhere. Yang Pan-seok and I were headed to the dormitory, guided by the soldiers.
The conflict between Cha Jae-gyun and the Ground Operations Command.
A conflict over the destruction of Seoul.
“Why didn’t they just take our signatures?”
Two lawmakers are not enough to appease those who do not listen. He must have gotten the signatures of the high-ranking ministers who rescued him.
It is slightly insufficient to become a public figure in power.
“…I think I know what you’re thinking right now. Didn’t I tell you to stop gambling earlier?”
“This is rational gambling.”
“Oh, that makes sense.”
If you’re going to start supporting fire, wouldn’t it be better to sharpen it for sure?
