Part 2 Chapter 52 - Isolation (4)
This entire chapter is a flashback~
Sul looks around and is relieved that Nam Joo Yeon isn't here. She was very stressed due to Young Gon's stalking during the break, and now, she's frustrated that Jung's in her group. The group assignment is on the global marketing of domestic comapnies. They propose ideas, but none seem suitable. Sul proposes 'company B' as a scenario just as Jung is about to propose the same thing. Everybody agrees to her idea, even Jung. Jung explains that in a report, it said that company B was targeting the Russian market after success in the Chinese market. Sul then intervenes, saying that she read the same report, and that recently, there was some conflict with the Russian government, so the idea of entering the Russian market was canceled. Kyung Hwan asks how she knows this, and she responds that she's taking another class where she had to analyse the SWOT* of company B's products, so she just happened to stumble upon that report. Kyung Hwan is excited because it seems that Sul already a lot of research on the topic, and Jung adds on, saying that they should use Sul's research for the assignment. He asks if Sul would be able to analyse and organize the research that pertains to global marketing. Everybody in the group agrees and seems glad about this. She ends up saying yes. Jung says: "Yeah. You even have the latest data, you work really hard. If you can just organize the research it'd be a great help for our project. Thanks." Sul isn't happy with the outcome, but she nevertheless agrees. Kyung Hwan is extremely happy, and says that they should go get something to drink.
At dinner, Sul is extremely angry - she is left to do all this work by herself. She regrets that she brought this topic up, and thinks that they should share the work. Everybody in the group is extremely thankful to Sul. She looks over to Jung, and realizes that she has a lot to do other than this assignment. One of the members orders even more food, and Sul is shocked, because this is a pricey restaurant.
Jung is talking to Kyung Hwan, and she calls him out. He doesn't notice her until she puts some money down on the table. Jung looks surprised, and Sul is surprised as well, and wonders if she has ever seen or talked to Jung so upclose. She wonder if she has in the past. She jumps and then explains that she has part time work to do, so she'll just leave her portion of the bill for the others. Jung looks confused, and Kyung Hwan says that Jung's buying. Sul looks confused as well, and she mumbles, "I..is that so? But it's a group meeting... so why would he pay all by himself..." Kyung Hwan mumbles that things like this happen. She then laughs, takes the money back, and leaves. She runs, and thinks that she has never hung out with them, so she doesn't understand how this whole 'payment' process works.
Sul works extremely hard on the assignment, working everywhere (even the subway, where people admire her for her extreme dedication to her studies - one man even tears up at her hard work), and she even gets into the entire incident with the drunk old lady.
After class, Bo Ra texts Sul to come out. The other students are discussing what to do for the school festival. Everybody votes for a pub, like every year. Sul tries to walk away, but she ends up suggesting renting an actual pub and scheduling a school band for a performance at the pub. Some people agree with her opinion, but Jung vetos it, pointing out several problems with money and locations. Sul tries to argue for her suggestion, but Jung strikes it down. Kyung Hwan tries to stop Jung's criticisms, but Sang Chul laughs, saying that the business management department has such passion. Jung wonders if Sul will be angry again and looks up, but Sul just replies, "Yes. It seems like I was too hasty and didn't think this through." She leaves.
After she leaves, Kyung Hwan tells Jung that he sort of likes Sul's idea, and that there was no need for Jung to crush her idea so mercilessly. He even says that he knows somebody who owns a bar nearby.
As Sul leaves, she thinks to herself, "I don't care what happens now. This is all bothersome."
A SWOT analysis stands for Strengths and Weakness and and external Opportunities and Threats. The essence of a situation is taking stock of a firm or product. While looking at the external factors and trends that might affect said firm or stock.
Quoting She-Rah on this.
