A veteran of episodic television, character actor Daniel Dae Kim became a familiar face on the small screen until he attained a different kind of stardom in 2004 when he was cast as the mysterious and controlling crash survivor Jin-Soo Kwok on the hit drama "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010). Despite his character's inability to speak English, Kim's character rose to the top of the heap as a favorite among audiences. Prior to his breakout success on "Lost," Kim had racked up a number of guest starring stints on shows like "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010), "Ally McBeal" (Fox, 1997-2002) and "Walker: Texas Ranger" (CBS, 1993-2001) before landing recurring roles on "Angel" (The WB, 1999-2004), "24" (Fox, 2001-2010) and "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009). He also made some headway into features with small parts in big movies like "The Jackal" (1997), "The Hulk" (2003) and "Spider Man 2" (2004). By the time "Lost" wound down, Kim had become a household name and moved on to another high-profile network series, "Hawaii Five-O" (CBS, 2010- ), which further established him as one of the more bankable stars on television.
