Keong Sim is an American actor best known for his starring role as attending neurosurgeon Dr. Sung Park, a Korean-American who is abrupt socially and English-challenged but also ambitious to the core, in the medical drama television series Monday Mornings.

Sim was also recurring on Glee as Mike Chang Sr.; guest-starring on Mike & Molly, Harry's Law and Grey's Anatomy, and filmed a supporting role in Antone Fuqua's Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart.

In short, Sim has come a long way from his first professional film line: "In the butt?" in Marci X, starring Lisa Kudrow and Damon Wayans. Though that line was edited out, Keong went on from it to work on many other films and TV shows, such as M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, The Forgotten (with Christian Slater), Southland, Rescue Me, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and MTV's Boiling Points, to name a few.

On stage, Sim has performed extensively in New York, as well as nationally. He has collaborated with luminaries such as George Wolfe at The Public Theatre, with the world premiere of Radiant Baby; Tony winner and Academy Award nominee Frank Galati, at Steppenwolf Theatre, for the world premiere of After the Quake; Chita Rivera at Papermill Playhouse for a production of Anything Goes; Jim Simpson at Flea Theatre, for the Obie-winning show Benten Kozo); and with Tony winner John Glines, for a production of Butterflies & Tigers.

He has also had the opportunity to travel abroad for acting gigs in Cuba, Canada, England and the Czech Republic.

Sim has studied and performed at Upright Citizens Brigade, Improv Olympic West, Chicago City Limits and the Peoples Improv Theatre (PIT). He has toured with Chicago City Limits' National Touring Company.

He also has performed for corporate training with TeamAct, Performance of a Lifetime and Laughter For A Change. He's especially proud of his volunteer work teaching improv to the boys at Pacific Lodge.

Sim grew up in Chicago and graduated from the University of Chicago.
