A San Francisco native, Korean-American actress Jamie Chung landed a shot at celebrity rather capriciously and arbitrarily, when working as a waitress as Riverside, CA’s Tremors Bar & Grill. MTV networks spotted the then-unknown and invited her to appear in season 14 of the popular reality series The Real World. She immediately obliged, and in the process jump-started her acting career. Guest spots followed on series programs including Veronica Mars, ER, and CSI: New York. Chung moved into films with a bit role as a Hooters girl in the Adam Sandler/Kevin James comedy I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007) and followed it up with a supporting turn as Chi Chi in the live action fantasy Dragonball (2009), adapted from the mangas of the same name.
