This week on Dr. Ken, things get extra Korean. When D.K.'s (Dana Lee) friends mock Ken for not being able to speak their native language, Dave (Albert Tsai) encourages his dad to join him at his Korean language lessons. Because honestly, there's nothing more motivating than getting clowned by Korean ahjussis.
Inspired by executive producer/star Ken Jeong's real life and career as a medical doctor, ABC's multi-camera comedy 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.
Here's a sneak peek and some more info about this week's episode, "Ken Learns Korean."
