Anyone remember this infamous email back from 2001. I wonder if it really was and still is so easy for someone like him.
Peter Chung was a decent looking (I saw his photo) 24 year-old up and coming ABK finance apprentice. He graduated from a good school and did a bit of time in Meryl Lynch before being hired by the private equity firm Carlyle Group for a sweet expat posting in Seoul. So after going over there for just a few days, he claimed rock-star success with the local girls and sex addict intentions via a company email sent to 10 of his buddies. Unfortunately, it went viral within a few hours. He was fired the next day and the story was widely circulated in the US, Korea and other parts of Asia and Europe.
Here it is:

So I've been in Korea for about a week and a half now and what can I say, LIFE IS GOOD....
I've got a spanking brand new 2000 sq. foot 3 bedroom apt. with a 200 sq. foot terrace running the entire length of my apartment with a view overlooking Korea's main river and nightline. Why do I need 3 bedrooms? Good question, the main bedroom is for my queen size bed, where CHUNG is going to f**k every hot chick in Korea over the next 2 years (5 down, 1,000,000,000 left to go) the second bedroom is for my harem of chickies, and the third bedroom is for all of you fuckers when you come out to visit my ass in Korea.
I go out to Korea's finest clubs, bars and lounges pretty much every other night on the weekdays and everyday on the weekends to (I think in about 2 months, after I learn a little bit of the buyside business I'll probably go out every night on the weekdays). I know I was a stud in NYC but I pretty much get about, on average, 5-8 phone numbers a night and at least 3 hot chicks that say that they want to go home with me every night I go out.
I love the buyside, I have bankers calling me everyday with opportunties and they pretty much cater to my every whim - you know (golfing events, lavish dinners, a night out clubbing). The guys I work with are also all chilll - I live in the same apt building as my VP and he drives me around in his Porsche (1 of 3 in all of Korea) to work and when we go out. What can I say,.... live is good,...
CHUNG is KING of his domain here in Seoul
So, all of you fuckers better keep in touch and start making plans to come out and visit my ass ASAP, I'll show you guys an unbelievable time.
My contact info is below.... Oh, by the way, someone's gotta start fedexing me boxes of domes, I
brought out about 40 but I think I'll run out of them by Saturday.....
