A City financier from London has resigned after a sexually explicit email charting his sexpolits in Korea was forwarded around the world.
Mirroring events that turned "yummy" Claire Swires into a household name overnight, Peter Chung's email was so entertaining his friends forwarded it on their friends...and so on.
That was a week ago. Since then, countless people have read - and forwarded - the email to the acute embarrassment of stiff-shirted financial outfit, The Carlyle Group.
Chung has since resigned - but not before boasting to pals how he is going to "f@*k every hot chick in Korea over the next 2 years" and how he was "a stud in NYC".
Anyhow, you don't need El Reg to bang on about this anymore. You know exactly what the crack is.
The only thing I'd add is some of the comments that have attached themselves to the email as it's spun its way around the world. Things like "absolute wanker banker", "what a complete knob" and "jackass" are typical of the contempt people hold for this individual.

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 f@*kers 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 f*@kers 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.....
