Chapter - 24

Fun Facts: The Korean Ministry of Gender Equality announced that 260,000 women; 1 of 25 of young Korean women may be engaged in the sex industry, however the Korea Women's Development Institute suggested that from 514,000 to 1.2 million Korean women participate in the prostitution industry.. So now I understand why these fucking authors love having their FMC being prostitutes..
Little reminder, South Korea Population ~51.47 million (2017)

Room Bang

After having a dinner with the whole management team of the sales department, MC followed them inside a Room Salon / Room Bang (Alcohol + Hostess). There is a lot of noise in the room, on the table there are many empty bottles..

Hostess A: Oh, Oppa ~ Don't do this.

Manager A's "forcing" hostess A to sit on his lap.

Manager A: Oh~oh, look we're like a seahorse.

Hostess B is laughing holding Manager A arm.

Hostess B: It seems really comfortable ~

Manager A: Well, I wonder if she's alright ~

He gropes her breasts and fondles them while making her rubbing her ass against his crotch.

Hostess A: Aaah ~ Kyah!

MC looks at them silently and stands up wanting to leave the room, Hostess C looks at him and tries to hold his arm.

Hostess C: Oppa, where are you going?

Manager A: ..ooh, Yu-Bujang where are you going?

MC leaves the room without stopping.

MC: ..I'm going to the bathroom.

FB holds a cigarette in his hand and notices MC leaving the room, Hostess D wants to light it with her lighter.

FB: Oh, it's all right.

He stops her hand before she lights his cigarette.

FB: I need to get some fresh air.


Back alley near the Room Bang

MC is alone sighing thinking about what's happening inside the private room, he lays his back against the wall and takes out his phone.

FMC: {..they are drinking together. Although I already told him to keep his mouth shut, still..}

FMC thinks about the conversation she had with FB 2 - 3 chap ago.

FMC: {Han Jae-Won reaction.. It was weird..}

She lays down on the bed silently thinking about it.

FMC: {Maybe it's like a 'Gereuk / Chicken Ribs'.}
(TN: "계륵" is called "Chicken Ribs" / "Gereuk", it's interpreted in Korean as something of not a big use or profit, it can also represent a bad situation or something to throw away.)

FMC: {It's really a waste of time..}

She gets angry and fights with her bed.

MC: That's right, we're seeing each other.

FB: ..good.

He makes a pause here and smirks before continuing his sentence.

FB: She's a really nice girl, and she has a really nice body for an used one.
Sometimes, it was hard to handle it, even for me.

He keeps smiling taking a glance at MC to see if he managed to enrage him, MC looks straight at him.

MC: Stop playing game with me and say it clearly, what do you mean by that?

FB throws his cigarette on the ground.

FB: Well, you're going to know about that in a few minutes.

MC clenches his fists really pissed about FB.

MC: ..Han Jae-Won-ssi. What you're saying is very inappropriate, do you know that?

FB looks at him unfazed.

MC: To me and toward Ahjin-ssi.
I'll tell you, I don't care about what you want to say or your story with her.

He looks straight at him spitting fact at his face.

MC: Anyways, I'm the one who's dating with Ahjin-ssi.

He begins to leave the back alley.

MC: By the way If you're not sure about what to do, just leave us and do your job.
It's not the place for an assistant manager to brag in front of me, so leave and enjoy the party with your department.

MC leaves, FB throws him a dissatisfied look, then FB's cellphone begins to ring, he takes it from his pocket and looks at the caller name / number and smirks.

FB: I don't want to get involved, either. She's really a troublesome woman to take care of. (Too demanding in a sexual way)
