Dong grew up in an unknown town in Vietnam. He eventually illegally immigrated to the United States, where he got a job at a Chinese food restaurant.
- A reccuring joke throughout the series is when Kimmy refers to Dong, people think she means penis, because "dong" is an American slang term for penis (whereas it's a common name in Vietnam).
- Dong never had a home in New York, and instead slept on the grill in the restaurant he worked at.
- Dong spends much of the show hiding from the authorities under the alias of "Richard Pennsylvania".
- He has mastered an "American" accent specifically for this purpose.
