Dong Nguyen is a recurring character on Netflix's original series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. He is the former boyfriend of Kimmy Schmidt.


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.
