“It was a good meal.”

I patted Choi on the shoulder as I left the door of the soup bistro. Today’s trading was all finished in the morning, so there was no reason to have a separate lunch.

“Well, it’s a lot cheaper than the last meal you bought.”

“No, it was delicious. I didn’t know there was such a restaurant near the company.”

Choi kept his promise to buy lunch on the next payday. He was a little light, but he was loyal and a good guy. I had some time left when I came back to work after eating. I turned on the Internet and searched for Mayor Joo Sung-won.

[Seoul Mayor Joo Sung-won visits Namdaemun Market for a tour of the public welfare.]

[Description of the New City Project, a pledge made by Joo Sung-won.]

[Mayor Joo Sung-won’s lecture schedule at Yonsei University in the afternoon.]

There was no information on ‘Me Too’ yet.

‘Not yet. This is it.’

I tried to close the window. But before closing, I was so curious about the stock price I had bought this morning. I promised myself not to see it today. In the end, I compromised with myself.

‘Don’t turn on the MTS. Let’s search.’

[Wow, Joo Sung-won’s words are so damn good, and he is such an idiot.]

[That’s what politicians usually do. They pretend to be clean in front of the public and sexually harass a girl who is like a daughter in the back.]

[Isn’t it funny if it’s real? If Mayor Joo Sung-won won re-election, he’d be the president in the next presidential election. He took the secretary’s ass one time and blew the president’s seat off, right?]

[He should have called a prostitute. I don’t understand why he touched a woman who did not like it?]

[It’s because he can’t be politicized if he’s not caught in the act. In any case, living as a politician is not easy.]

In the meantime, some cold comments were seen.

[It hasn’t been confirmed yet, so why are you already making a fuss?]

[Mayor Joo Sung-won, he’s not that kind of man. The secretary seems a little weird.]

[This is political maneuvering by Lee Hee-chul. It’s a dirty ploy to win the Seoul mayoral election.]

[The truth always comes out. We’ll see.]

The political parties were also in turmoil. As the facts were still unknown, the other mayoral candidates Lee Hee-chul and Jung Kwan-soo remained calm, but their party spokesmen were not calm and blamed Joo with an official statement.

“Mayor Joo Sung-won will have to answer for his sexual harassment honestly and clearly in front of ten million voters.”

“Is it really appropriate for someone who is involved in such a messy scandal to become Seoul Mayor, an international city in the global era? Smart voters…”

Mayor Joo Sung-won hurriedly held a press conference as informed in the advance in 12 Hours After and issued a statement saying, ‘I didn’t do it,’ but it was not enough to settle the issue.

‘People are bound to go crazy about the story that a popular person has fallen.’

The situation was a month before the Seoul mayoral election. The sex scandal of Mayor Joo Sung-won, the most likely candidate, was enough to heat up the Internet. The political news section had been painted over with the story of Mayor Joo Sung-won. Even in the Society section, an article like ‘A message about the Me Too movement’ popped up.

In Life/Culture, articles like ‘A woman who is sexually harassed in her daily life. A new novel that tells the story of the socially weak,’ came out.

There were many such articles. This was not different from the entire nation being swept away by the Me Too movement. Stock prices also reflected this tendency, especially when it hit the upper limit price, when the fire was set.

‘That’s enough. We’ll have to go to the upper limit price one more time, right?’

I spent the whole day looking around the political news and the Internet community, thinking that way. It might be a hobby for others, but for me, it was all a collection of data to determine the best time for selling.
