If we think about taking the college entrance exam and the civil service exam, we will have more time. However, I couldn’t force myself to procrastinate indefinitely. Going straight into college was the most impactful choice, and it was because it established an image of being firmly rooted in the family.
The voice of the class president rang in Kim Seokho’s ears, who was lost in thought.
“Bow to the teacher.”
With the homeroom teacher entering the classroom, another day started.
“Why is everyone so quiet? Did you all gain some wisdom overnight?”
The homeroom teacher looked at the students who were quietly seated and reading their books as if they were amazed.
Then, after confirming something and forming an impression, he shouted.
The homeroom teacher pointed to the seat where Kim Seokho was sitting with the attendance book in his hand, his face filled with anger.
“Come to the office after the attendance is finished.”
Whether he thought that talking to Kim Seokho was more important or not, the homeroom teacher finished the attendance with a few short words.
Kim Seokho stood up after the attendance was completed.
And he casually walked towards the office.
Kim Seokho already knew why the homeroom teacher called him.
During the turbulent years of adolescence, he knew better than anyone the things he had done at school.
Before leaving the classroom, Kim Seokho spotted someone and stopped for a moment.
“Park Jangwon. I think he went to Seoul National University, right? But was he in the same class as me?”
After entering middle school together, they went on to high school and became famous figures in a different sense than Kim Seokho.
As the name given by Jangwon’s father, who urged him to become a top student, Jangwon was a person who had never missed being ranked first in the whole school for six years, so it was natural for him to think that he would become a future judge.
However, he caused controversy at school by choosing a business college instead of a law school.
Although going to Seoul National University’s law school was considered an elite course, Jangwon boldly gave up because he didn’t have enough money to attend until he passed the entrance exam. Instead, he caused a stir by choosing the business college where he could immediately start making money after graduation.
Of course, teachers made constant efforts to persuade Jangwon to change his choice.
Because they knew how much it would help the school’s image and their own careers to have a student admitted to Seoul National University’s law school.
But Jangwon silenced the teachers, saying that he would quit if they didn’t support him until he passed the entrance exam.
And as a famous person who confidently entered the business college despite the regretful gazes of school officials, he entered.
Because of these controversies and discussions, Kim Seokho, who appeared at school every other day, also remembered his name.
“Oh right, he was there.”
Kim Seokho’s face brightened as he realized that he had found a way to go to Seoul National University.
“You! Do you think it’s okay to tarnish your grandfather’s name? Stop tormenting the kids. Stop hitting them. You should live up to your role as the grandson of Chairman Kim Daehwan of Taeyang Group. You’re not a gangster…”
Kim Seokho’s homeroom teacher scolded him for more than ten minutes while keeping Kim Seokho in front of him.
Kim Seokho quietly listened to the scolding.
As he got older, he realized that there was not a single false word in the homeroom teacher’s scolding.
“I know that you started exercising because you didn’t want to study. But do you think beating up other kids is the answer? Right now, you might think that your fists are all you need, but you will realize that it’s not true as you get older.”
“Yes, teacher. You’re right.”
Normally, when he scolded him like this, Kim Seokho would leave the room without saying anything.
But now, he didn’t say anything and just quietly stood there, listening to the scolding. This was not enough. He even agreed.
The homeroom teacher was momentarily taken aback by Kim Seokho’s unexpected reaction.
And in response to such a teacher, Kim Seokho revealed even more surprising news.
“I agree that studying is the easiest. So from now on, I want to try studying too.”
“What… are you saying?”
