Chapter 4 . Return (2)

Kang Chul-In’s first task after returning to the past, was to organize his normal life before the great summoning . And to do so, he needed to quit this dirty, horrid job .

‘I was nothing back then, wasting away in a company like this . ’

Before the great summoning, Kang Chul-In was a normal, gruff young man no different from anyone else . A life struggling to make ends meet, living day to day .

He flashed a smile thinking of his past ten years ago, and walked into the office .

And as soon as he showed himself, all eyes fell onto him . It was obvious that they were nervous, like a group of poor farmers in the face of the government .

“Hey, you punk!”

Kim Min-Chul, who had been prowling the office with his golf club, roared as he laid eyes on him .

“What, you punk . ”

Kang Chul-In answered .



The office went cold .

The male employees thought,

‘Kang… Chul-In, he has finally lost it from all the stress . He has lost it . ’

‘Wow, he isn’t even scared . ’

‘Poor guy, he should just let it slide… these are tough times…’

And the female employees thought,

‘Oh my, what is he going to do…’

‘That CEO, he is a gangster… is Chul-In going to be alright?’

“Wait, what? ‘What you punk?’”

“Yeah, you punk . ”


Kim Min-Chul felt like his blood was flowing backwards . Who would have guessed, the CEO being cursed by a newbie not even a year into ‘the real world’?

“You…you… little intern bug… who do you think…”

“What do you mean who? It’s a newly rich, oily fat bastard . Or what, a gangster? Thug?”

That did it .

Many who used to or currently use their fists for any gain, tended to react sensitively to the word ‘thug’—calling themselves gangsters, or a man with a chivalrous spirit .

It was crap .

In the eyes of Kang Chul-In, anyone seeking to gain by using violence was the same thing—scum .

Especially, gangs had evolved after the 90s to use the law to their advantage and hid behind enforcement and authority . Kim Min-Chul was a perfect example of this .

“Well, I say it like it is . What else would I call a thug? Human trash?”

Kang Chul-In sneered at the evil CEO, unfazed by Kim Min-Chul’s obvious anger .

And in that, Kim Min-Chul exploded .

“Hey, you fucking bitch!”

The golf club with a loud whoosh, fell on Kang Chul-In . It had happened in the blink of an eye . But the club hit nothing but air .


Kim Min-Chul looked around .

“False swing . ”

Kang Chul-In sneered at Kim Min-Chul . He had avoided the club swung at full speed just by leaning slightly away .

“This son of a bitch!”

Kim Min-Chul, red-faced and overcome with anger, ran towards Kang Chul-In . However, he could not even brush the corner of Kang Chul-In’s clothes .

But was it surprising?

Kang Chul-In was recognized even by others of his physical strength and power—even in such form, he was still Kang Chul-In . One needed to be at least a professional boxer to be a threat, and even that would have nothing against him in two months .

“Huff… Huff… you little rat…!”

Kim Min-Chul huffed and puffed, gritting his teeth .

“Aren’t you the incompetent one, not being able to hit me?”

Kang Chul-In smirked .

“More importantly…”

And his expression changed . His burning eyes seemed to pierce the heart .

“You play with the golf club one more time, and it won’t be fun anymore . ”

It was a clear warning .

However, Kim Min-Chul, already overcome with anger and unable make proper judgments, ignored the warning and lunged forward . I mean, if he swung around golf clubs in his office because he was a little angry, it was obvious the man didn’t have common sense nor curtesy .

“Die, you dog!”



Kim Min-Chul fell, with one lone scream .

The man on the ground could not even breathe normally . The fist had struck right in the gut .


The blow was so strong that Kim Min-Chul vomited all the fish stew that he had had for lunch that day .

“You don’t take punches well . I thought you would hold out because you are fat . ” Kang Chul-In looked to Kim Min-Chul and delivered the final insult .

“Boss! Are you alright?”

An employee rushed to Kim Min-Chul’s side and assisted him .

“Oh… our boss…! Kang Chul-In, you jerk! Get on your knees and apologize to the CEO now!”

His calculating move made Kang Chul-In hopeful of his success in the workplace in the future . Even if he was just going to be here, rotting away .

Kang Chul-In did not respond to the male employee . He was not worth even acknowledging .

‘Human groups . ’

They were all the same, the pig that swung golf clubs out of anger and the calculating scum that sought favor from the pig . Of course, he had no intention of purely criticizing the male employee for being calculating . It was not bad to try and survive, one needed to do what one needed to do to live . But, to throw one’s pride and everything else away for it—didn’t seem too appetizing . And to reminisce at Kim Min-Chul’s previous actions… he could only flash a bitter smile .

“You…you jerk… I… I will kill you… you bug…”

Kim Min-Chul, being escorted by the male employee, spitefully glared at Kang Chul-In .

“Call Manager Park…Tell him to crush him!”

Manager Park was a thug who worked for Kim Min-Chul and oversaw a small gang .

“Oh, I’m so scared . ”

Kang Chul-In scoffed .

Times have changed and he was still trying to use violence over a petty argument—and announcing it in front of people . Kang Chul-In wondered if Kim Min-Chul was just stupid or unable to see logic, overcome with anger .

“You jerk… if Manager Park arrives…”

Kim Min-Chul brought up Manager Park repeatedly, threatening Kang Chul-In . It seemed like he had no doubt Manager Park would be able to take down Kang Chul-In .

“Ah ah… . M, manager Park!”

Looking behind Kang Chul-in, the person he had sought for this whole time could be seen . Coincidentally, Manager Park had come into the office .

“CEO Kim?”

Manger Park seemed a little taken aback at the unexpected satiation, but he ordered his subordinates to assist Kim Min-Chul .

“Oh…Manager Park…! That jerk hit me! He hit me!”

Kim Min-Chul whined to Manager Park hanging on to him, leaving out the part where he had swung the club first .

“That jerk, because I lectured him a little… because I told him to do his job right! He cursed at me and hit me!”

“Boss . The whole story…”

“Never mind the whole story! He hit me! Beat him right now!”

Kim Min-Chul was stubborn . He caused a ruckus, waving his arms and legs like a whining toddler .

‘You stupid idiot . What are you doing in front of all the employees?’

In that moment, Manager Park felt a headache coming, but also could not ignore the complaints of his boss . Kim Min-Chul was the fatal source of income for him and his family, which was nothing but a small gang .

‘I’ll need to clean it up briefly . ’

Manager Park made up his mind and decided to clean up the office first .

“What are you all looking at!” When Manager Park roared, all eyes fell back to their respective desks .

“Everyone, quiet, work quietly . Instead of needlessly gossiping . And Team Manager Oh . ”

Manager Park pointed at the calculating male employee who had helped Kim Min-Chul .

“Bring the CEO back to his office . ”

“Oh, yes! Let us… let us go, boss . ”

Team Manager Oh struggled to help Kim Min-Chul who was fat and overweight .

“Haha… you are dead now, you jerk . ”

Kim Min-Chul, on his way to his office snickered at Kang Chul-In . It was as if the image of Kang Chul-In, beat to death by Manager Park, was already engrained in his head .

“Oh, really?”

Kang Chul-In, who had been silently watching the situation unfold, had nothing else to say . He really did put on every kind of show . He wondered how he could have worked at such a company for nine months .

“Hey, intern . ”

As Kang Chul-In was wondering, Manager Park called him .

“You should have known when to lower your pride . Just because he gave you an earful, you shouldn’t come at him like that . You should have just agreed with him and left it at that . ”

Manager Park, although he scolded Kang Chul-In, didn’t seem too convinced . He also knew well of CEO Kim Min-Chul’s wrongdoings, and he had received immense stress from him until that point . Although he worked for Kim Min-Chul, he did understand this young intern’s anger .

‘I will scold him a little and let it go . ’

Manager Park made up his mind . These were new times, and using fists to solve problems were no more . A wise thing for a gangster living in these times would be to roughly create a situation where Kim Min-Chul would be satisfied . However, all of Manager Park’s good intentions disappeared with the intern’s smug tone .

“What adult?”

Kang Chul-In asked .

“In your eyes, that pig looks like an adult? Well I guess for a gangster; the financer is the adult . ”

The veins bulged in the slicked back forehead of Manager Park .

“Hey . ”

Manager Park glared at Kang Chul-In .

“Watch your mouth . Think of the situation, think of the person . That’s how you live for a long time . Yeah?”

“That rule only applies to thugs like you . ”

The word ‘thug’ triggered Manager Park, as it did Kim Min-Chul, and he clenched his fists .

“You crazy dog!”

“You want to die?”

It seemed as if Manager Park’s two subordinates were more infuriated than the Manager himself .

“You little dog, did you just call my boss a thug?”

“Oh, you smile? You want me to ruin your face?”

And a threatening atmosphere formed, as if punches were going to be thrown at any minute .

“Sigh… I was just going to let it go, but I need to fix your attitude today . ” Manager Park did not lose his cool and calmly let his anger simmer despite being insulted .

“You, follow me up to the roof . ”

Manager Park pointed to the office door .

“No, not like that . ” Kang Chul-In answered .

“You follow . ”

And he exited the office door first .

“…What is that kid?”

Manager Park scoffed at this absurd situation .
