You know how there are a lot of things that they can't do in other countries. I mean yeah... Well sometimes they leave work together. So when he comes, they can come with the motorcycles. Since they have to follow as much as possible anyway. Ah yes. That'd work. And when they're leaving everything they can go to Manager Choi. Ah yes. We can do that. So drink freely. That's what we should do, right? And order some noodles for Manager Choi. Is he getting noodles? Well, he wouldn't drink. He wouldn't drink anyway. Then he can come and have a bowl of noodles. And we can drink. Then Choi Woo can -- And you can ride in the back so that your face is shown. Go behind me. Behind Wonsuk. Yeah we can do that. So what about the workshop? Where are we gonna go? Where is the location? I don't know, it was just suggested to me today. Wouldn't it be fun to have it somewhere with water? Ugh, why do we have so many things that don't work. It's not fun. What's wrong? For sleeping over, I haven't had many experiences with going to the beach with women. I have aged. Yes. I can't sleep anywhere like I used to. Damn. I can only sleep in hotels. For real. Damn. I can't even sleep in rental cottages. Hotels are good... Well motels are better. Than hotels. See these are the differences. Unless they're super expensive hotels, for most hotels places like event hotels are much better. Oh we can't do those kinds of places. There's convention hotel in Gangwondo. Convention? But that hotel... Well I guess it is a hotel. It's pretty small. It costs around 300 won. 300 won. We should give them a call. I'm going there. In front of the convention hotel, there's a condo. There's many there. Yeah right below it. I'm eating with Assistant Manager Seo. Jaewook! Do you want to eat the pork cartilage too? No. Are they filming here? Yeah I told you they're filming until tomorrow morning. They're filming until I go to work. 24 hours. Are you getting the meeting filmed intentionally? No. When Manager Choi arrives, we can get him some noodles and leave right away. Yes yes. Sounds good. It's more fun to go somewhere new. Hey Jaewook come over here. Come here. You suggested it. The workshop. Ah! We were talking about that. It' not a meeting. This is very important, dude. Did you send that? Yes I sent it. Aren't they (camera crew) eating? Just think of them as ghosts. Don't talk to them. Act like they're not here. Don't even look at them. Just eat this. Don't drink. You can drink later. Ah then But, The transportation is that cost. Without the wages and everything. The wages... Can you make a plan for that? Me? Yes. I don't have a plan... You made the plan so tell us. Hmm? What are you going to do? I'll appoint you as the workshop leader. You can plan everything. Starting with the convenience stores. If we decide to do it. But if the plan isn't perfect we're not going. I'll give you 1,000,000 won from the company. If there's additional costs, you take care of them. What do you think? No. When are you going to keep it at 1,000,000 won? It works with 1,000,000 won. How many people are going? I told you eight. Who's in the eight? Eight including the director. We have 7 employees. We're 7 people? Yes. Excuse me, please get me some kimchi. Eight including the director. 10 per person? ugh. It probably won't work. Workshops cost more. We need around 20 per person for the workshop to work. No that's not the problem. We also need to get day workers. Right. We have that and, This is a special case. We need to get day workers to cover for us. Call Director Choi. Ask if he wants noodles. Are you going to do it? Yes. I don't have battery on my phone right now. I have 5% left. 5%. You can drive Assistant Manager Seo. And take him home. And ride in the back when you're returning. Ok? How? Wonsuk can take one. Since you're not. Then he can go. Ugh. Why aren't you eating? He was at a meeting. Director! He said to come here afterwards to drink. Ask him how far he is from here. How long do you think it'll take? Yes. Yes. When is he coming? He said he's close. Order some noodles. You can just ask the owner. Where are you going? Just ask him. Ok. Where are you going? I do what I want. Can't I have a drink? What? Alcohol? No this is going to viewed worldwide. Yeah Korea can overlook a little but there are some countries that have the death penalty for drunk driving. Just pour him some water. Here. Just pretend it's alcohol. Wow it looks real! It looks like alcohol. I'm going to drink after you leave. Me? I'll drink when you leave. You're going to drink after I leave? Where am I going? Doesn't matter. You're going to drink when I go home? Sure. Don't drink and drive. There reason your license is on hold is because of drunk driving, right? Yeah. You can't even go to the United States. I don't have to go. I like Korea. Why do you place such a limit on your life? Wait why can't I go to the U.S.? You can't go if you get caught drunk driving. You can't get the visa. Really? Yup. You can't. I guess I can go. Give him another glass. I'll pour it myself. Yes. Do that. It's more comfortable that way. Yeah. Are you good at drinking? Seems like it. He's really downing it. Director Choi, come over here. Have some noodles. You should adjust your mic. It won't work. You have to twist it. Twist what? Just adjust it a little? Yes. You must be tired. He must be. He told me earlier. What are we going to do? For the addition? So we planned this: Seunghwan can't drive because he drank so Jaewook will drive. Seunghwan can ride in the back. What? The motorcycle? Yeah when we go home. And the cameraman will come along. He can take the motorcycle and drive it back. What did you do with the key? The motorcycle key? Did YangJae Bom take it? He took it. He took it? Then give him a call tomorrow. Who had the key? Hey where did you park the motorcycle? The broken one? It wasn't in front of the New Village restaurant. The crossroads in front of New Village restaurant. On the other side of the crossroads? Near Shin Nonhyun station? On the Yeoyido side. It wasn't there. Why wasn't it there? Go check. Check before you get a call later and have to move around. There's going to be 8 people going for 1 night and 2 days for the workshop. Do you think 1,000,000 won will be enough? It won't take 1,000,000 won. It won't? It won't. How? Do you want me to give you money like it grows off of trees? You know, even when I travel with 1 other person I use 2,000,000 won by myself. Where? Well, of course it was for 4 days and 5 nights. Are you kidding me? Even he is thinking about just 800,000 won. Right? No he said 1,000,000 won. I said: I suggested starting with the wages for the day workers It would be 1,000,000 won total and everything else can be extra. Ah I get it. Ok. No problem. No it is a problem! If we pay 8 day workers, it'll be 800,000 won! Oh, 700,000 won for 7 workers What? Stop trying to get 2,000,000 won. Yeah 600,000 won. Who's going? 8 people. All of the staff. We need to use 4 day workers then. Yes. Use 4? 6 people. 2 are already there. Ah then it's 5 people. Since you're part of the 8. And it's not 8 people it's 7 right now. So including you it's 8. Yes. It's 7 but 7 minus 2. Since 2 people are taking a break on Mondays. So if we're going on Monday it'll be 5 people. So we need 5 people then. No, it's not 5 people. The director doesn't do that work so we only need to hire 4 people. 4 people? Do you think that's possible? It's 24 hours. No we can make it work. We can plan it. We might even need 6 people. 5. We need 5. Just get 3 for the day and 2 for the night. They're only here for 1 day so we can really work them. No, the night shift is pretty ok but You see -- Just get enough for the day shift. No, that's not what I mean. We just need to pick a few good ones. No. Do you know what the similarity between day workers are? They prioritize themselves and take everything slowly. They don't care about deadlines and time limits. If we can finish a task in 20 minutes, the day workers take 30 minutes. No. Last time they finished things quickly. Nope. Day workers are like that. They prioritize their own safety. They make sure they're safe. Jaewook is drinking a lot. You know the people who were here? If we take the number of calls The most calls we've done per hour is 6 or 7 calls. If it's 6 or 7 calls for 3 people, it's 2 calls per person. We can definitely do it. Unless people go crazy and we get 8 or 10 calls per hour. Excuse me, please give us some soup. And Here. Look at this. Hey, this. Bro! Here are the fish cakes. If we can plan in detail, it will be enough. This -- The important part is, We need to put Monday in it. Sunday, Monday. Sunday, Monday. And we can come back on Tuesday? When would we come back? We can go on Sunday night and come back on Monday. We need to do it like this. Hang out, have a drink at night, and then come back. We can't party too hard. Right. We can all meet on Sunday night. What can we do 3AM on a Sunday? What are you talking about? What? The trip and location will be enough. It'll be pretty free on Sunday night. So we should go on the weekend. It is the weekend. And on Sunday night -- No I mean during the week. We need to go during the week, party, have a drink at night. And then come back quickly. So we're sleeping over until the next day. Yes. We need to do it like that. How? Tell me again. We need to go there in the morning. For example, to a ocean. We can hang out there and then drink at night. We need to come back late at night that day. Or in the morning. Maybe like 9AM. 9AM is too early. No no we just need to get the peak time. And leave then. We can start in the morning and arrive around lunch time and unpack all of our stuff and go out. We can go swimming or play some ball games on the mountain. or something. Go to a waterpark? The waterpark sounds fun. It's not even that far. Oh so we're not going to somewhere like a rental cottage? Are you dumb? If we go to a rental cottage we'll just end up staring at each other ugh Ocean World. Isn't it better to go somewhere like Ocean World? Ocean World is fun. What do you do there? They have waves and stuff. Ah it's like a swimming pool It's an indoor pool but a really big indoor pool. Oh so it's not outside? No there's an outdoor part and an indoor pool. Ocean World has the outdoor and indoor part connected. It's fun. It's really fun. You just float on the water and go in and out. There's also a spa. Wow you're already on it. We need to make sure they're satisfied. Ah I was thinking about a rental cottage near the beach. I was thinking that too. Kind of like old school college retreats. But if we do that it might be really boring. Anyway you're basically saying we should go to an amusement... amusement park. A water park! Water park. And it takes so long to get there. We're going to be completely exhausted. We'll be completely exhausted. Where is it next to? An amusement park? And nearby Ocean World, nearby we can have a pork belly party. Right. We can have a pork belly party and some alcohol. And then Ocean World would be closely. Are you going to take your Audi? Of course. He'll take the Audi and we can have 2 cars. One mine, one yours. Let's auction it. Go. And all the young people can... All the young people can slowly leave. When I asked, people thought I was 33. Hahaha it makes me feel good. Who said that? Can you pour me a drink? Ah you're annoying. Shall we have a drink? The camera man... Cheers? Hmm 33. Where did you hear such a... Anyway that's what happened. We should go hang out like that. That'll be the most fun and people will be satisfied. And if we go at night... But there will be a lot of people on Sunday. Ah we can't go on Sunday. Then when? We should go on a Monday. We need to go when we'd get the least amount of day calls. And on Monday, we don't get a lot of day calls or night calls. So what I thought was, We really don't get a lot of night calls around Sunday 9PM. Listen to me. We can all get together on Sunday 9PM, and leave. Most places are only an hour away from here. That's right. We can go to Gangwondo or wherever. Before we arrive, we have to get groceries before 9. We can get meat or something. We Can get everything ready and at 9, and then leave. And while we're driving... Can we order something else? Pork cartilage? Excuse me! Do they have anything else? What do you want? Don't they have ark shells? Do you have ark shells? Yes, we have ark shells. Really? Can you get us some ark shells? Thank you. And then... Ah so we leave at 9PM on Sunday, and we can hang out there and eat and talk a bit in the morning, and then come back Monday night. We can do that. For me, for example, I don't think we should end with talking and drinking since we need to be able to go to work the next day. Isn't that easier? No. It's not like that. If we don't do that, we can't do anything. So what should we do? Do you think people will talk honestly if they're sober? So... So we need to talk while drinking the day before. Then they're going to say that the next day would be too hard. No it's not like that. I think it would be like that. No but we could do the pork belly party and they after they all eat, they can leave with Jinsoo to go swimming. Ah could you join them? Since you're in your 30s. I think 30's would be acceptable. Right? Right? No at the beach there's... We should leave together once and... There's a night club there. What? A night club? Yes! They have that there! Yeah I'm at the age for going to night clubs. Ah my head hurts! Hey the silhouette of my body is better than yours. Really? My waist is 30 (centimeters). You should work on yourself. I saw him running earlier. Me? Trying to lose weight? Hmm? Anyway. So lets plan it well this time. We have a pro who's been to one before. Lets make this work... You haven't been to something like this either, right? No, we had some workshops for branch managers. I meant with the staff! Ugh Branch managers. You guys said you're going to quit after 3 months anyway. Yup. I don't know why anyone would invest in someone who'll only work for 3 months. Ugh. How about me? Seunghwan and Director Choi will be here forever. But aren't you leaving after 3 months? I don't know yet. Big corporations. Big corporations! Haha This guy is the kind of person who goes back and forth every day, so it might have been 3 months then but we don't know now. We never know with him. He flips hundreds of time everyday. He needs to look at the future and invest in a company. You should pay for yourself. Director! You're supposed to do that with companies. Hahaha I think Jaewook is getting kind of annoyed. Ah but I really think we should do the workshop. If he didn't hear about it, he would've been fine, but now that he has, he might be sad if you don't let him go. And we should think about it for July. It's good to go soon, but we need to suffer through the monsoon season. We always have to suffer through the monsoon season. When the monsoon season is over and it's sunny, I think that's the perfect time to go. My plan is... Why would you go when it's the busiest? That's when we get the least amount of calls, so it'll be good to have fun. But it's hard to find substitutes then. Should we just shut down the company? No! Let's just have fun and There's plenty of substitutes! just shut it down for one day hahaha There's plenty of substitutes! Plenty! Director, he's not wrong though because Yeah let's pick the vacation time! What was I saying? During the vacation season, most jobs involving motorcycles are free. During vacation season. Didn't you notice during your 4 years? It's free but... That's right! That's true. It seems like that because with restaurants and everything... So if they say we're going 360, we need to go. Yes! There's that but... I think it'd be good to go once. It really helps to get to know people. To be honest, if vacations are too long, There's an after-effect. There's an after-effect... You get tired! Tired! Tired! Yeah but I don't think 1 night and 2 days would be like that. 1 night 2 days! I think it'll be fun if we go. Ah I need to work out now! I need to work out for a month. We'll see. Because photos are the only things that last. When we come back. You know, even if you're body is great, Yeah. Our country prioritizes being attractive. Hmm yeah? Yes. It doesn't matter if your body is good, because you need to be good looking. We'll see? We'll see! Haha That's why I'm always in the corner. My body is really nice. Even if I just work out for a week, I can see the muscles everywhere. My body bulks up really quickly. It bulks up quickly but goes back quickly too haha It's like a balloon. So in the morning, Jaewon. Do you think Yongun would go? Of course. Ah Yongun participates well and all, but isn't he kind of an outsider? No no, he's not like that. He's not that busy. He's just quiet. But you don't know yet because when Jaehyun first came here, he was a really quiet person but look now. Today he was hugging me. He was hugging me, and trying to link arms. I think Jaehyun feels lonely. I saw his phone and he only had 2 people on it. Do you know who the 2 are? The customer service center and Manager Choi. No no no. Who's in it? Originally, it was the customer service center and Manager Choi. hahaha he didn't have the customer service center. It was me and Director Choi. I think he's lonely... Why wasn't my number saved? Me? It was hard to meet him at first because our schedules were so different. Wasn't it because he didn't like you? I think looking at Jaehyun and everyone else currently in here, an operation really needs warm-heartedness. That's right. That's how you can leave well if you're doing something else or if you're staying. Right. Please get our order in quickly. I said this before: if you're going to drive the motorcycle in the summer anyway, do it here. Yes! People still leave though. No! It's different from then. It's different from then ugh. Did I do something wrong to the staff? I don't think they left because of you. Rather, I think the system had a lot of problems. For now... How about now? It's very different now. It's very different now, I'm not lying. I can see that you're trying very hard. It's very different, now. This is on the house. Oh! Thank you! Oh! Why? The size! Are you trying to become a world star? Wow! I asked him if he could do this for us as a joke. What did you ask him to do? What is this? It's chicken gizzard. Chicken gizzard. Hey this is really something. Last time, the amount was half of this. This is huge. You can come here sometimes and ask the owner to exchange for your bills for change. He'll do it for you. You can be first place here. Reach first place here. What kind of investment do I need to make to improve the company? Ah but you're already doing it. It's changing. It's really changing. If the company invests in something, we'll need a result. To be honest... I think it's more important to try our best than to just look at the results. There's a saying that we should just leave the results up to God. Likewise, I'm honestly very thankful to everyone. But as you can tell, I honestly... I've just done delivery work so I wouldn't know, but... you have a lot of people you're in charge of. There is a lot, and... if you keep doing business, do you think the number of calls we receive would increase? Or do you think it won't? What do you think? I think it will increase. The power of productivity changes the world. There's that too, but... It really does increase. In reality, Our delivery jobs have hit 444,000 this month. And that's just the delivery. We had around 16 or 18 companies, and we reached 440,000. without the amount we are currently supposed to receive. What we earned until January 26th has exceeded 490,000 won. So for the small things, when we first... before that... when everyone left and the 2 of us had to run everything, we only earned around 19000 but... now we have new workers like Yongun. I was worried when they first came. Because we were doing well, and I thought the call decreased. But now, even if it's only been a little while, we started to become more busy again. That is, we can't see it, but we're growing invisibly. And in the past, we had a lot of complaints... We had a lot of complaints by customers, and now we've applied them and we're using even small ideas to improve ourselves. First. Also, we are considering everything the staff says that could help the company. I am trying to communicate with the call center, and if these things pile up, our results may not increase quickly but when they all pile up? I think we can become 1st place within 6 months. Like I said, if we're going to ride motorcycles, we're going to do it here. Does that mean Jaewook won't leave in 6 months? Especially after he goes to the workshop? Nah I don't ride motorcycles. Hahaha Don't talk to him. He flips around hundreds of times per day. Jaewook, where are you going? Delivery! So where? Me? Samtan. Where is Samtan? Next to Yeoksam-dong! Call the call center and asking if the substitutes are here. They need to adapt when he comes. So... Good work, guys. This is hard work. It's been tough today, right? I heard there were 2 accidents. Because of a taxi crashed them. We made it through. I... It was in the news. It was in a lot of news channels. For real! Take this and go. Do you know what driver Oh said? He said we're going to become world stars, so the owner here is also... I heard that a lot too. Are the substitutes done? I heard that a lot because... He doesn't have double eyelids. And I don't have double eyelids either. The substitutes are done. Let's do a driver meeting after Jaewook is done. I recorded Hochul earlier. I told Hochul that when the substitute comes, when the substitute comes, you have to give the call to the substitute first. What? You're giving us more? Thank you! Please give us some more kimchi. Yes. Give the call to the substitute. And... Have a drink. Got another call? Give it to the substitute. Another one? Give it to the substitute. I told him to do it like this. Because if you think about it, we get 73000 won, but the substitute gets 90,000 won. Give them as many calls as possible. Yes, we need to really work them. That's true. Yes, that's the right way. Of course. We need to prioritize the staff we currently have. Because if we count the pay by hour, we get less. We get less and they get more. That's obvious. It's small, but once it starts spreading... We were there earlier. The big house. Bigger. The big house restaurant. Bigger. Right. I can feel a change coming. That vibe where... You go on the motorcycle, you go home, and the thing is those people spread rumors. Yes. And it seems like the substitutes aren't important, but it's not a joke! Ah but... The important part is that, we need to get good rumors... Right. But we are still working on the interior management, so I think we can definitely... Thank you. Ah you're really the best. You are the best. Ah! I love you. It's really good, right? It's delicious. The cartilage was good too. I made the chicken gizzard and the cartilage myself. Really? Yes. Chicken gizzard. Really? Ah! Yes.
