Chairman Lee speaks to the members.


View from the window of the window on the 13th floor of the Financial Investment Association building in Yeoido. The dual buildings in the distance just left of center are the LG Twin Towers where I worked for five years during the 1990s. Chairman Lee was my boss for most of the time I was there though, at that time, his job title was "General Manager".P1000827

View from the same window as above. The gold-color building is where Myunghee and I got married in 1996… on something like the 50th floor. (Don't remember the exact floor.) Chairman Lee attended the wedding with his family. P1000826

Chicken and beer with the members after the meeting! — Turns out that the Cheonan Incident occured right about the time we finished up our meal and were heading for home.P1000834
