|"I'm sorry, business has been slow. Please, take one of my phonographs!"|
|— Mr. Chung trying to negotiate with the Triple Threat Triad.|
Mr. Chung was part of the "protection" program that the Triple Threat Triad ran in his neighborhood. In order to avoid hostility, he needed to pay a "protection" fee.
On Korra's first day in Republic City, Mr. Chung, while cleaning his phonographs, was interrupted by three Triple Threat Triad members: Two Toed Ping, Viper, and an earthbender. When they asked for their protection payment, Mr. Chung informed them that recent business had been slow and that he consequently could not pay, offering them a phonograph instead. Two Toed Ping promptly destroyed the device with firebending, with Viper claiming that he "[was] not a music lover". Though he was threatened by the group's leader for his failure to pay, Mr. Chung was put out of harm's way when Korra diverted the gang members' attention.
