The Affair was one of our favorite new series, let alone dramas, last year, and we certainly weren’t alone in that assessment, as it won the Golden Globe for best drama series.

A select audience knows Jeong as Spanish instructor Señor Chang on Community. Still others may know Jeong as the doctor who gave them an annual physical exam. WHAT? Yes, Jeong is also a real-life physician (he keeps his medical license current during his screen career), and he’s the leading man in ABC’s sitcom Dr. Ken (premiering Friday, Oct. 2, at 8:30pm ET/PT), loosely based on his professional … Continue reading
