They always supported each other for each other’s betterment. There is not a single report that Tran Ho had a boyfriend, before her marriage.
Their relationship is so strong that even after seeing some girlfriends with Ken Jeong on the set of hangover, idea of divorce has not struck Tran Ho’s mind. She had full faith on Ken Jeong that he would not even think about cheating her. She has claimed that he would not have an extra marital affair because he loves her and his daughters very much and because he is an honest person. As he gets time from shooting of ‘Hangover’, he participates in her chemotherapies and supports his wife at every difficulty in life, she is facing.

He helped his wife to go through the sessions of 16 chemotherapy and mastectomy. His wife insisted him to take up the Hangover offer, as, at the time, the offer was made, they were going for one of session of chemotherapy and Jeong wanted to be his wife, during the session. His presence and commitment to go with his wife also helped Ho to respond positively in the treatment and recover early.
