The Ingenuos Hyeungnim


One fine night at J.Co., sitting  andsipping with Rhum Filled Black Forest Smoothie with these two cream filled doughnuts

I have never met someone so rich and so noble and have a conversation with in my entire life.
My older sister met her Korean fiance’ when she was working for Samsung in Daegu, South Korea two years ago. One thing I know about this Korean man at first as what my sister always tell me is that he was really intelligent, clever, humble and affluent. Of course at first I did not care about it because I could not validate his ingenuity based on what others will say about him. As I currently having series of conversation with him – by the way, he insisted that I should call him HYEUNG-NIM – A name which is a respectable way of saying older brother to a guy. It is used by males to call older males. It is written in hangeul as 형님. – I knew deeper than what I already knew as we sat down at this comic-book Japanese cafe’ around downtown Davao. I realized he is such an interesting man. He managed to establish his own company in Paldal, Buk-gu, Daegu, South Korea for ten years now. He had published around 30 instructional Abacus, Arithmetic and Calculus books and sold more than 2,000 copies in four different levels and by now, I cannot calculate how many books he have sold since its production and income are concurrent. You can visit the website here.  He programmed and constructed this website along with skilled people. He had around 30 employees in his academy and probably 10 or more in his textile business which he exports to countries like Russia and Mongolia. He teaches in Daegu University and served as their Prefect of Discipline. He did these three different roles as he grows his yearnings, he shares it to the needy not only sharing 1,000 hours of his life every year in volunteer works.
His family owns a mini restaurant in Korea and every time someone would stood up and asked for food, they will definitely give it for free. He said if you go to his restaurant you just say “Paegu ppayo, don eopsseoyo” and they will feed you. This sentence means “I am hungry. I don’t have money.” His mother, a Christian, taught him that giving is more important than receiving. He always mention that. I got his whole point. Why he was such a good man because he doesn’t care about his riches by what he receives but how he can give.
Our family planned to extend a restaurant here in Davao and we’ll try to apply the “Paegu ppayo, don eopsseoyo” thing in secret.
