Zen Buddhism and Existentialism

Hello. I'm new here.

The other day, I was discussing philosophy (amateur) with a friend, a Zen Buddhist monk. I was attempting to explain how existentialism is actually quite Buddhist but doing a very bad job of it. Other than an ad hominem arguement against it, for being the product of "western thought", he disagreed with me.

Can anyone here help me explain?
