Chan Woo Sung '86 Hosts Happy Hour in Seoul

Chan Woo Sung '86 has joined the Alumni Council as Regional Representative in Seoul, Korea. He returned to campus for his 30th reunion in October. For many years, he has organized alumni gatherings in Seoul, and we are pleased to have him continue his good work in keeping our global alumni network alive and thriving. Our most recent event was a Happy Hour at the Diageo Lobby Bar at the Gangnam Finance Center on August 24th.

After graduating from Webb, Chan attended UC Irvine and graduated with a BA in Political Science in 1990. He then left for New York to attend New York Law School, where he was a member of the law review.  After graduating NYLS in 1993, he worked as a maritime lawyer for 10 years at a law firm where the mother of former Head Susan Nelson worked for many years (although Chan never had the pleasure of working with her). Chan returned to Korea with his family in 2003 where he continued his legal career. He has worked for one of Korea's leading law firms, an electronics company, a tobacco company, and a large retailer. Chan currently holds the position of legal director of a total beverage alcohol company, and hopes to add weapons and casino companies to round out his resume as the consigliere for all of the sin industries.  

Chan is married to Beatrice, and has an older daughter Sabrina soon to graduate from Brandeis University, and a younger son Curtis.
