Dr. Kendrick Kang-Joh "Ken" Jeong (Korean: 정강조 Jeong Kang-jo, born July 13, 1969) is a South Korean-American actor, comedian, and former physician. He is best known for his roles as Ben Chang on the critically acclaimed NBC/Yahoo! comedy series Community and gangster Leslie Chow in The Hangover trilogy. He is currently the lead in Dr. Ken, for which he is also creator, writer, and co-executive producer.
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".
