Long Duk Dong is a fictional character that appears in Sixteen Candles , a American coming-of-age comedy film written and directed by John Hughes. Played by Japanese American actor Gedde Watanabe , the character is an Asian foreign exchange student and a supporting character in the film set at a US suburban high school. The character has been called an offensive stereotype of Asian people. He appears accompanied by a gong sound. He practices his conversational English with others, has his hair parted down the middle as an uncool style, is mystified by American food, and calls himself "The Donger".
