Daniel Dae Kim becomes third Lost actor arrested for DUI

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071026/..._tv/lost_actor

HONOLULU - Another actor on the hit TV series "Lost" was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving early Thursday by Honolulu police — the fourth actor on the ABC series to run into trouble with the law while filming in Hawaii.

Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Korean tough guy Jin-Soo Kwon, was taken into custody before 3 a.m. local time, police said. He was booked at the downtown police station and released after posting bail.

Wearing a solid-white polo shirt and shorts, Kim hid his head from cameras as he was escorted by police officers to a waiting vehicle after his release.

Other "Lost" stars facing problems with the police in Hawaii include Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros, whose characters were killed off in 2005 after they both were arrested and pleaded guilty to drunken driving.

Rodriguez, who played Ana Lucia, was sentenced to five days in jail and $357 in fines. Watros, who played Libby on the show, had her license suspended for 90 days and paid a $312 fine.

A year ago, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, the actor who played "Mr. Eko," was arrested for a traffic violation, also in the early morning hours, and accused of disobeying a police officer and driving without a license. The charges were dropped, but his character also was killed off.

Five other cast members working in Hawaii have been cited for traffic violations, mostly for speeding, according to police.

Earlier this month, Rodriguez was sentenced to six months in jail in Los Angeles for failing to complete community service and alcohol monitoring as part of her probation for previous drunken driving violations. She has been ordered to report to county jail on Christmas Eve.

Rodriguez had been on three years probation after pleading no contest to hit-and-run, driving on a suspended license and drunken driving in connection with two incidents in Hollywood in 2003.

Kim, 38, was born in Busan, South Korea, but grew up in Easton, Pa., and has a masters degree from New York University.

On the show, he portrayed a chauvinistic thug who at first was overly protective of his wife, Sun, but then began to warm up to other characters on the mysterious island where "Lost" is set. Trained in classical theater, he had to learn Korean for the role and then had to learn to practice speaking English with a Korean accent as his character learned to speak English.

In addition to work on several TV series before "Lost," he had small roles in "Spider-Man 2," "The Hulk" and "Crash."
