I am a big fan of the ABC show Dr. Ken. My family and I watch the show every Friday night. We know we are guaranteed a laugh. So I was very excited when I had the opportunity to interview Dr. Ken.

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Ken Jeong, from the ABC show Dr. Ken. You may know him best as the Asian mobster Mr. Chow in the hit comedies The Hangover, the Hangover 2 and 3. Ken has had memorable roles in the feature films, Knocked Up as the Doctor, Role Models, Pineapple Express, and Step Brothers. He was most recently seen in Universal’s Ride Along 2. Other film credits include The Duff, Transformers 3, Despicable Me 2, and Nom of the North.

We have seen Ken on TV as well. Ken was a series regular on the critically acclaimed NBC show Community. His most recent endeavor is the ABC show, Dr. Ken. This show is based on Ken’s life before acting.  Before he was an actor Ken was a real honest-to-goodness M.D.

About Dr. Ken:

Doctor turned actor/comedian Ken Jeong plays Dr. Ken Park, a brilliant physician with no bedside manner. Ken brings medicine and laughter together as a grumpy and annoyed HMO doctor. He is always trying to be a good doctor, as well as a good husband and dad to his two kids. Dr. Ken’s challenging professional life is trumped only by his home life. Luckily, his therapist wife Allison is just the right partner to keep things sane.

This Friday’s (10/7) episode, Ken’s real-life daughter will make an appearance on the show. When a neighbor girl, Emily, (Molly Jeong) stands outside the kitchen window staring at Dave (Albert Tsai), and Molly, (Krista Marie Yu) and D.K. try to scare her off. Ken is surprised when he learns Pat, instead of him, is asked to emcee this year’s annual Welltopia banquet. Clark (Jonathan Slavin) and Damona (Tisha Campbell-Martin) debate relationship as it relates to their individual partners.

Interview with Dr. Ken.

Stacey– What do you want America to take away from your show?

Ken– Our ultimate goal is to entertain. We want families to laugh. We wanted to show the perspective of the Asian American family, without being preachy or very Asian-centric. It a very modern, and updated perspective of a 2nd generation Asian American family. We want the show to be relatable, grounded, and dig deeper into real life situations.

Stacey– Your real-life daughter Molly is playing Emily, a neighbor girl, in this week’s episode. Will she have a recurring role on the show?

Ken– Yes, my real daughter Molly has a role in this week’s episode and next week’s episode as well. If she appears in more episodes depends on the storyline and her agent (her mom/Ken’s wife). I had a few proud parent moments while watching my daughter during the taping. She really was very professional, especially taping in front of a LIVE studio audience.

Stacey– Dr. Ken is based on your real life before you became an actor/comedian. Will the show follow that direction as well, or will it continue as it is now, with an HMO setting?

Ken Dr. Ken is based on my real life before I became an actor. I wanted the show to be an alternative timeline to becoming an actor. It reflects my life as if acting never happened. I really did work with my wife at the same company, like the characters are portraying on the show.

I really enjoyed speaking with Ken as he spoke about the show, the cast, and everyone behind the scenes. Ken is a hilariously funny guy and Dr. Ken is just as hilarious to watch.

Home maintenance is an important task to stay on top of. As a homeowner, I’ve learned that problems will arise around the house from time to time. Most of the problems are entirely preventable too, with regular home maintenance. Clogged pipes are a gross task to complete but an easy one to take care of if you know how. Learn how to clear a clogged drain fast.

Nothing is worse than a nasty clog. If you have a clog in your bathtub, it’s caused by hair and soap scum that builds up in your pipe, hence a clogged pipe. If the clog happens in the kitchen, it’s caused by grease, soap residue and bits of food that have gone down the drain. No matter where the clog is located, you want the clog gone fast.


How To Clear A Clogged Drain Fast


Clear a Clogged Drain

When your drain is clogged, you have a few options you can use to clear a clogged drain.

  • Option one, you could use a kitchen plunger. You will plunge, plunge, and plunge away until you have finally unclogged the drain. This method is labor intensive depending on the nature and stubbornness of the clog, and it can be a bit messy. I, personally do not recommend using option one, if you want a faster and easier method to unclog the drain.
  • Option two, grab a bottle of Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover for the easiest and fastest way to unclog your drain. Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover starts working immediately to clear blocked drains fast. The Gel formula is stronger than other brands and has a thick consistency to power through standing water to remove the most stubborn of clogs. Simply pour the clog remover directly into the drain, and wait at least 5 minutes to see if the clog has drained. It may take longer than 5 minutes and up to overnight to unclog the drain.



Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover

My entire family uses Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover to clear a clogged drain, and we have for many years. Roto-Rooter is the only clog remover we purchase because we know that it works fast. We trust that Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover will get the job done. They stand behind their products. Roto-Rooter guarantees that their products work, or it’s free. I like a company that stands behind their product. If you have a clog that Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover couldn’t power through, then go to their website to learn how to get a refund.

I recently had the opportunity to visit BlogHer 2016 and stopped in the Best Buy booth for the Best Buy Experience. It was an enjoyable experience. I got to check out all the new gadgets and appliances that Best Buy has to offer. I was in technology heaven with all of the new innovations. My favorite was getting to check out the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy before it lands in stores.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy is one of the best phones to hit the market. I love the features of this phone. With the Note 7, you no longer have to worry if your phone gets wet. The Note 7 is Waterproof. It can get wet up to 5 feet of water for 30 minutes. You no longer have to use the rice in a bag method to hopefully dry out your phone, because it is waterproof.

As a busy mom and a blogger, I can use the S Pen to jot down an idea, to-do lists, appointments, draw, edit, create a GIF and so much more. It can sync with your calendar and other apps, to keep you organized.

I really liked that I know my phone is secure, and my documents, banking information and contacts are protected with the new Iris Scanner. How cool is that? Using your eye to unlock your phone instead of fingerprints, passwords or draw patterns, which you can still use to unlock your phone if you choose to. Since it is protected with the Iris Scanner, I feel more secure turning my phone into a mobile wallet. Store your credit, debit, membership and loyalty cards on your phone and pay almost anywhere you’d swipe or tap your card. Which really comes in handy when you’re in a rush.

Take great pictures and videos like a pro with a fast auto focus and a lens that lets in more light than ever before. The camera takes sharp photos and videos while on the move and in the dark. The battery is the longest-lasting battery to date and will keep you powered when your schedule is hectic and packed. The fast wireless charger will have you ready to go in no time at all.

Free Gear Fit2 or 256GB Memory Card with Purchase and Activation

When you purchase a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy, you can get a Free Gear Fit2 or 256GB memory card with purchase and activation. That is a great value.The bundle is worth $249.99, which is an awesome deal. You can take as many pictures and videos and never have to delete a memory again with a 256GB memory card.

 Best Buy Mobile Plan & Compare Tool

Did you know that about 50% of people overpay on their cell phone bill? That number is just way too high. Best Buy wants to help you find the lowest price with the Mobile Plan & Compare tool. The mobile plan and compare tool is a very simple process. Have a Best Buy employee use the tool to compare your mobile plan to others to see if you are overpaying. Give them a bit of information about your account and they will tell you which plan is right for you and how much you are overpaying. This service is available at all Best Buy stores. Stop in today to see how Best Buy can help.

I am so glad that my plan is ready for an upgrade within the month, and I will definitely be purchasing the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy. The Note 7 will help keep me organized while on the go and so much more. I have always been a Samsung Galaxy fan. I will pass on my Galaxy S5 to my son when I purchase the Note 7.

What are your favorite features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?
