Jae Suh Park and her husband Randall Park are amazing actors who have created a niche for themselves in comedic acting. Here is all that is known about the pair who have a daughter they dote on.


How Jae Suh Park and Randall Park met was nothing short of divine orchestration. The pair had been a part of the Asian American acting community and knew about each other before their first meeting.

Randall and Jae first met at a non-profit theatre fundraiser in 2007 for which Randall had drawn a squirrel that had no hands. Despite their first meeting, Randall was scared and could not muster the courage to talk to her.

As fate would have it, they met again at an audition and talked briefly before Jae was called in to give her performance. The third time was a charm, and at another audition where they met, he invited her to his birthday party.

At the party, he finally got the chance to ask her out on a date. The rest they say is history as few months after the date, they declared their love for one another and were married by August 2009.



Raised in Lodi, California, Jae fell in love with acting from an early age. At the age of eight, she had played the role of a dinosaur, and the feeling she got from playing the part was something she always wanted to relive.

Despite starting the theater group, Randall did not go into acting immediately after he finished school.

While that might have been her first encounter, Jae did not take things seriously until she got to college, and after an acting course, the teacher pulled her aside and told her to take acting seriously despite being a design major.


Her parents thought acting was a hobby for her, and not until she moved to San Fransico did they begin to take her seriously when it came to acting as a career.

The "Friends From College" actor pointed out that although she did not set out to be a comedic actor, it was something that came naturally to her, and she has decided to pursue it. She said:

"I don't mind it because I love comedy, and I feel it's kind of a natural thing for me. I'd love to grow and deepen my well, but I'm thankful for all this stuff."


Some of her other works include: "ER," "How I Met Your Mother," "The Big Short," and "The Mindy Project," in which she acted alongside her husband, Randall.


Jae and Randall have been married for over ten years, and they have a daughter named Ruby, whom they welcomed in May 2012. Despite being active actors, both have found a way of ensuring that their daughter is well catered for when they are not available.

They rely on their friends and family, and from time to time, they take vacations together to help them bond and have family time. From visiting Kauai to Hawaii and Ohau, the Parks often find time to relax away from the stress of Hollywood.


Ruby, who, according to Jae, thinks that seeing her parents on-screen is normal, once had a web series called the "Baby Mentalist," which her father wrote and starred her.

While some might say it is not right for actors to marry each other, Jae and Randall have seen their marriage as a blessing that has helped them become better at their craft and better individuals in life.



Born and raised in Los Angeles, Randall's love for acting stemmed from his love for creative writing. An English major graduate from UCLA, he loved writing stories and short plays while in school.

This prompted him to start a theater group called Lapu, the Coyote that Cares; the group has been active for over 15 years. Despite starting the theater group, Randall did not go into acting immediately after he finished school.


He took up jobs as a graphic designer, and when he lost his job with a newspaper company, he decided to go back to school to study architecture.

Things did not work out with architecture, and he bounced around a lot. During this period, while back in the college community setting, he performed on stage, and an executive from Fox pulled him aside and told him to give acting a shot.

Randall also tried his hands at rapping under the name "Randruff" before concentrating fully on acting. Ever since, he has been in a lot of movies and series, including "Southpaw," "Aquaman," and "Wandavision," among others.
