U.S President Barack Obama spent the last day of his weeklong summer vacation playing golf with two Korean-Americans ― World Bank president Jim Yong Kim and New York lawyer Eunu Chun.
According to news reports Sunday, Obama hit the links Sunday with Kim, attorney and Obama fundraiser Chun, and aide Mike Brush at Martha’s Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown, Massachusetts.
Attorney Chun, son of a Korean immigrant, grew up in the suburbs north of Chicago and graduated from Harvard University and Columbia Law School.
He is a partner counsel at Kirkland & Ellis LLP in New York City, whose practice covers a wide range of transactions involving corporate law, mergers and acquisitions law, and venture capital law.
Chun is said to have made $80,800 in contributions to Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012. He also gave $35,800 in political contributions to the Obama Victory Fund last year.
World Bank President Kim had already played a round at Martha’s Vineyard on Aug. 14 with Obama, former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Comcast CEO Brian Roberts.
Obama left the Massachusetts island later that day to return to Washington, D.C.
