“With a good option… …
It wasn’t known what the hidden options were. But what if the hidden options were popular with the players?
While speculating, Kim Seok-cheon took out his cell phone. He then made a group call to the executives of his guild, Black Label.
The executives are also busy. But there was no way they wouldn’t answer the phone. That was because he had already told all of the executives to come and was only waiting for them to log out.
Soon the executives started answering the phone, and the executives started shouting out their designated numbers.
-1. -2. -3.
The number of executives who will participate in this meeting was six or seven with Kim Seok-cheon himself included.
“Now that you’re here, I will go straight to the main point.”
After the executive ‘No.5’ arrived, and Kim Seok-cheon went straight to the main point.
“I think everyone has seen it. Even with our guild’s funding, it will be difficult to buy it. What do you think?”
Originally, he was thinking of selling Yarion’s Wrath after purchase. However, after reading the second article, he changed his mind. It will be a huge issue. It will be a huge issue no one has seen before.
In such a situation, would it really be a good idea to sell it right away after purchasing it?
-I agree. If we exhaust the guild funds, we might be able to buy it….
-It seems difficult to make a profit by reselling. Rather, brokering–■
The money to buy is also money, but they didn’t think there would be that much benefit to reselling it. No, there was a possibility that it would be detrimental to them.
-I think it’s better to buy it even with a little more investment.
Not everyone was against buying. Rather, there were more people who wanted to buy.
-Me too. Money can cause damage, but as well as guild image, gold horses can get other things. We might lose money in the sale after purchasing. But it’s not just about losing money. Once we succeed in the purchase, it could be very helpful in promoting the guild.
-Yeah, right. For example, exclusive trading rights! I also think it would be better to buy. It doesn’t mean that we want to be the middle man. And we can trade it for things other than gold. Even if we lose some gold, we can benefit from the other side.
-I think it’s better to buy it. You can even connect with large guilds and chaebol rankers. Even if you lose gold, I think that buying it is beneficial in the long run.
Moreover, in the process of selling after purchase, it would be possible to connect with numerous people.
After hearing the opinions of the executives, Kim Seok-cheon sighed.
“It’s four for buying, two for brokering. Whatever the choice is, the majority is clear.”
Of course, the opinions of executives are just opinions. The final decision is made by Kim Seok-cheon. No matter how many were in favor of buying it, Kim Seok-cheon is a broker. However, Kim Seok-cheon had no intention of making such an arbitrary decision.
“My decision is …… to buy it”
As soon as Kim Seok-cheon made his decision, one of the executives asked.
-But will you sell it straight away afterwards?
To the executive’s question, Kim Seok-cheon replied with a smile.
“Yes, I checked with Yeon-jeung. He plans to sell it.”
To be precise, he said he was not going to sell it, but was thinking of selling it. However, for Kim Seok-cheon, that was the word.
It was Kim Seok-cheon’s merchant intuition, who thought that if Yeon-jeung had any intention to sell.
“This is a one-time-only investment with 10k gold per person. Tell the guild members.”
After hearing the answers from the executives, Kim Seok-cheon ended the call and put his phone down. “after… …
Then he sighed and looked at the monitor.
“How many will hear of this….”
How much will it cost to buy Yarion’s Wrath?
“If we’re not careful, the chaebols will snatch it away before we can do anything……”
#T/N: Chaebols are people/entities belonging to the vastly rich in Korea, stemming from families which possess comglomerates under their name
Money is money, but strategy is also needed.
One had to be fast in order to buy such an item.
It was going to be difficult if the chaebols participate. The financial power of the chaebols is literally enormous.
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
When Soo Hyuk closed the book, a message appeared and he reached for the next book.
However, he failed to grab one. Soo Hyuk turned his head and looked to the left. He didn’t see a single book. All he could see was his hand reaching to find a book.
‘Have I finished them all?’
It seemed that he had read all the books he brought. Soo Hyuk got up to return the books and go get some more.
And Soo Hyuk, who got up from the seat, stopped moving.
-Yeon-jeung: Hey! It’s me!
-Yeon-jeung: I posted it!
-Yeon-jeung: Are you reading a book again?
-Yeon-jeung: Wow, aren’t you curios? About the reaction?
-Yeon-jeung: If it were me, I would have checked constantly.
-Yeon-jeung: Why don’t you answer?! The reaction is also crazy! And my subscribers have increased tremendously!!
-Yeon-jeung: If you see this, contact me right away!
Another wave of whispers came from Yeon-jeung. Soo Hyuk put down the books he had planned to return and sent a whisper to Yeon-jeung.
-Soo Hyuk: I’m sorry, I just noticed it now.
Soo Hyuk whispered and waited for a while. However, the answer didn’t come immediately so Yeon-jeung was probably busy with something else.
“Is he hunting?”
Soo Hyuk picked up the book again. After returning the books, he headed to the bookshelf.
Afterwards he return to his desk with another five books from the bookshelf.
-Yeon-jeung: Soo Hyuk!
A whisper came from Yeon-jeung. Soo Hyuk, who was engrossed in a book and almost got a whisper bomb again, laid down the book and sat at the desk, answering Yeon-jeung’s whisper.
-Soo Hyuk: Yes
-Yeon-jeung: It exploded.
-Soo Hyuk: That is …. great?
Soo Hyuk asked.
-Yeon-jeung: Do you know how many views were made before I came in?
-Soo Hyuk: around 100,000?
To Yeon-jeung’s question, Soo Hyuk guessed roughly. He didn’t know the exact number anyway.
It was because Yeon-jeung wasn’t asking for a exact number either.
-Yeon-jeung: Heh heh.
In response to Soo Hyuk’s answer, Yeon-jeung sent a sneaky laugh.
-Soo Hyuk: How much is it?
Soo Hyuk asked at Yeon-jeung’s laughter.
-Yeon-jeung: Don’t be too surprised.
-Soo Hyuk: Ok.
-Yeon-jeung: Views before I entered
-Yeon-jeung: 2.5 million!
Soo Hyuk knew that this news would spread tremendously.
The moment he heard that number, he was certainly suprised.
-Soo Hyuk: 2.5 million?
2.5 million? It hasn’t even been a day since Yeon-jeung posted, it was only a few hours. But 2.5 million?
‘Didn’t Yeon-jeung tell him that he had 1.5 million subscribers in the past?’
That wasn’t the only problem. Yeon-jeung had 1.5 million subscribers. Honestly speaking, even with 1.5 million, if you upload a post, not all 1.5 million would view it.
A million, two-thirds, was already a good result. But how did he get 2.5 million views?
-Yeon-jeung: Yes! Now the article is so popular that even players oversea are also watching!
Pangea was still only available in Korea. However, just because the service was only provided in Korea, it didn’t mean that the players were only from Korea.
There were people who also used Pangea overseas, and the number wasn’t even small. And, of course, there was an official website for users who played from overseas.
-Yeon-jeung: For reference, my posts are the 2nd and 3rd most popular posts! Many thanks!
Soo Hyuk, realizing why the number of hits was 2.5 million, nodded, stopped nodding at Yeon-jeung’s whisper, and tilted his head.
‘2nd, 3rd place?’
2nd or 3rd place?
-Soo Hyuk: Did you post 2 posts?
-Yeon-jeung: Oh, you didn’t say anything. Sorry, Sorry. I divided and posted in two. Thanks to that, the reaction completely exploded!!! If you sell it, it would fetch an enormous price.
Soo Hyuk could tell from Yeon-jeung’s whisper that Yeon-jeung was excited. It will be hard to be excited about the situation now.
‘Ah, that’s right.’
It was then.
-Soo Hyuk: Yeon-jeung, when will you go to the dungeon?
Suddenly, he thought about the dungeon.
Soo Hyuk, who was unexperienced with the current situation, but didn’t want to forget it again, asked Yeon-jeung.
-Yeon-jeung: Oh, that’s right. I have to go to the dungeon.
-Yeon-jeung: Is the time okay anytime now?
-Soo Hyuk: Yes, I have a place to stop by before I go, but it won’t take long.
-Yeon-jeung: Then how about 4 days later?
-Soo Hyuk: Saturday?
-Soo Hyuk: All right. I’ll see you in 4 days.
-Yeon-jeung: Yes, but what are you going to do?
Soo Hyuk was puzzled by Yeon-jeung’s words. What was he going to do? He wasn’t sure what he was talking about.
-Yeon-jeung: It’s not a trivial matter. You know what I mean.
Following Yeon-jeung’s words, Soo Hyuk understood what he meant.
-Soo Hyuk: I don’t know when to sell, but if I do.
He didn’t know when to sell. He hadn’t decided yet. He didn’t expect this reaction in the first place.
His initial plan was to wait for the reaction and then decide.
-Soo Hyuk: I’m thinking of putting it in the auction house.
And the idea was to use the auction house to sell.
-Yeon-jeung: Even though the fee is a little wasteful, if you use the auction house, you will remain anonymous.
The auction house had advantages and disadvantages. The advantage was that the seller would remain anonymous. No one would know who put the item in the auction house.
In other words, no one would bother him. Considering the current situation of Yeon-jeung, who is in constant contact with him, it was a necessary part for Soo Hyuk.
There are two drawbacks, first of all, the fee.
Each sale through the auction house would entail a commission of 1%.
Although it seems to be less than 1%, Yarion’s Wrath was expected to be an one-of-a-kind auction. The 1 % fee would still be substantial.
The second drawback was that if he put it up for auction and couldn’t cancel it within an hour, he can’t cancel it at all.
In other words, if he didn’t cancel within an hour, he couldn’t help it even if he got a price he didn’t like.
Of course, in this case, there was no second drawback. If the winning bid was too much, it would be too much, but there would be no shortage.
-Yeon-jeung: Let me know when the date is set! I’ll post it!
-Soo Hyuk: All right. An let’s meat up and get something to eat! I’ll pay.
-Yeon-jeung: No, I have to buy it. Look at how many subscribers I got thanks to you!
-Yeon-jeung: We’ll have to go to the dungeon on Saturday. How about lunch on Friday? I’ll also teach you about the dungeon in detail.
-Soo Hyuk: All right. Then see you for lunch on Friday.
-Yeon-jeung: Okay! Good work! And congratulations!
So, Soo Hyuk thought after ending his whisper with Yeon-jeung.
‘How much is it?’
He was curious about the reaction.
Of course, he was curious about the reaction, so he didn’t plan to log out.
He had to check it out right now.
