"Jeong at first believed people were heckling him, but as soon as he was made aware that someone was in trouble, "[he jumped] off stage to assist" a woman having a seizure, according to Twitter user Heather Holmberg, who was at the show. "The timing was very flawless, Ken just jumped from the stage to help", says Holmberg, noting that the woman appeared to be having a seizure.

Jeong seemed to think the audience members were razzing him at first when they called for him, Holmberg says.

"He couldn't see what was going on with the lights". "He thought he was being heckled.He realized there was an issue, and he came over". An audience member who happened to be an EMT reportedly also stayed with the woman until things were under control. "It was a moment where time stands still.There was a hush over the room", she told USAToday.

If one has to require medical attention during a live show, Jeong's show is a safe bet as the actor began his career as a real-life doctor. Someone was having a crisis. After he graduated from Duke University in 1990, Jeong earned a medical degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine five years later.
