Biography

Jeong's wife, Tran Ho, is Vietnamese American, a family physician and a breast cancer survivor. They have two children. Jeong became engaged to Ho around 2003 or 2004.

Jeong was encouraged by his wife to quit his job as a physician and pursue acting full-time; Jeong states that "I had just finished filming Knocked Up, and it was life-changing. But I didn't have the courage to go for it until she persuaded me. Medicine is a hard-won skill, and acting can be a fickle profession, so I tried to be realistic. Now, I'm a spoiled actor. I get weekends off and hiatus weeks — time I never got as a doctor".
