Ken Jeong Goes Extra Korean on a Thanksgiving 'Dr. Ken'

Episode 107: "Thanksgiving Culture Clash" airs Friday, November 20 at 8:30pm on ABC



This week on ABC's Dr. Ken, it's Thanksgiving! Molly rebels and gets a Japanese tattoo, which spirals Ken and Allison into having a cultural face-off when Allison claims she is more Japanese than Ken is Korean.

Inspired by executive producer/star Ken Jeong's real life and career as a medical doctor, Dr. Ken follows Dr. Ken Park, a physician with bad bedside manner trying to juggle medicine and being a family man to his wife and kids -- and not quite succeeding on either front.

Dr. Ken also stars the awesome Suzy Nakamura as Ken's wife Allison, Krista Marie Yu as daughter Molly, and Albert Tsai as his son Dave. They're all great. The cast is rounded out by Tisha Campbell-Martin as Damona, Jonathan Slavin as Clark, Kate Simses as Julie and Dave Foley as Pat.

Here's a preview of this week's episode, "Thanksgiving Culture Clash":
