Assing Aleong (born December 19, 1934) is an American character actor and singer who has also been active in songwriting and musical production. His first important role was in the 1957 movie, No Down Payment, which starred Joanne Woodward and Jeffrey Hunter. He is probably best known for portraying Senator Hidoshi during the first season of Babylon 5, as well as portraying Mr. Chiang, the aide to Nathan Bates in the weekly series of V: The Series. He also portrayed the character of Colonel Mitamura in Farewell to the King. He owned the Gingham Dog fast food restaurant in Hollywood, California, circa 1965.

He has a listing in the current "Joel Whitburn's Top Pop Singles 1955-2008" with "Trade Winds, Trade Winds" appearing in November 1961. The song peaked at #101 in Billboard Magazine on the "Bubbling Under the Hot 100" charts, and it remained on the chart for four weeks. According to an interview with Aki on YouTube ("Part 1 of Twyman Creative Insider Interview with Aki Aleong") the song was Number 1 in Los Angeles in 1961. While that is not exactly accurate, "Trade Winds, Trade Winds" did reach Number 10 on KDAY and Number 11 on KRLA, two L.A. Top 40 stations.

He is a member of the Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA) and is the executive director for Asians in Media.

Recently, he starred as Agent X in the WongFu Productions YouTube short starring Ryan Higa, Agents of Secret Stuff.
