About Cho KimEdit
In the episode "A Night at Rosie's" in Season 7, to escape the tension of camp, Triage and O.R., it seems like the whole camp is hanging out at Rosie's--Klinger comes to gamble, to partake in a craps game ran by Cho and his son, Ham Kim (played by Richard Lee-Sung). Father Mulcahy arrives to try to corral B.J. and Hawkeye, but quickly gives up and has a drink, Margaret comes looking for her nurses but after a couple of compliments finds herself dancing with new found accquaintance and soon to be future flame Sergeant Jack Scully. During the craps game, Father Mulcahy notices that the ringleaders, Cho and son Ham are cheating, leading to Klinger, who doesn't take too kindly to the Ham's tryin to use loaded dice to try to quell Klinger's lucky streak, where he's netted a huge wad of cash! A huge fight then breaks out as a result, as the MPs arrive, looking for Scully, who is technically AWOL.
