Biography

Daniel Dae Kim (born Kim Dae-hyun (Korean: 김대현) on August 4, 1968) is an American actor, voice actor, and producer. He is known for his roles as Jin-Soo Kwon in Lost, Chin Ho Kelly in Hawaii Five-0, Gavin Park in Angel, and Johnny Gat in the Saints Row series of video games. He also runs a production company, 3AD, which is currently producing the television series The Good Doctor.

Personal Life

Though Kim continues to split his time between Los Angeles and New York, he spends the majority of his year in Honolulu, Hawaii, where he lives with his wife and two sons. After first moving to Hawaii during the later seasons of Lost, he continued his residency after being cast in Hawaii Five-0. He served as a speaker at the 2014 University of Hawaii commencement ceremony.On March 19, 2020, Kim announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19. He also spoke out against the racism related to the pandemic, stating: "Please, please stop the prejudice and senseless violence against Asian people. ... Yes, I'm Asian. And yes, I have coronavirus. But I did not get it from China, I got it in America. In New York City. Despite what certain political leaders want to call it, I don't consider the place where it's from as important as the people who are sick and dying." On March 30, 2020, Kim announced that he had recovered.Kim is also an avid collector of fine vintage watches that includes several important timepieces including a Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 3700/1A, a Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 1675 Blueberry, a Rolex Daytona Ref. 6263 Big Eyes, both the original Omega Speedmaster Ultraman and the reissued Speedy Tuesday Edition, a Grand Seiko Hi-Beat GMT 36000 and very early Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Ref. 5402 A-Series from 1972. Some of his watches from his personal collection have been featured in some of his films.

Early Life

Kim was born in Busan, South Korea, the son of mother Jung Kim and father Dr. Doo-tae Kim, and moved to the United States with his family when he was a year old. He grew up in New York City, Easton, and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Freedom High School. In 1990, Kim graduated from Haverford College with double bachelor's degrees in theater and political science. He went on to earn an MFA from NYU's Graduate Acting Program in 1996.
