SPOILER ALERT: Do not read this interview if you haven't seen Tuesday night's episode of "Lost!"
Fans are still reeling from the heart-wrenching deaths of Jin and Sun Kwon on Tuesday night's "Lost." Just prior to that episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin, and he told me about his memories of the show, the now-deceased Kwons' "candidate" status, as well as his upcoming plans (also in Hawaii, where "Lost" was filmed, it turns out).
CNN: What will you remember most about "Lost?"
There is one memory I have: When we first started the show we were unsure if it would be successful, when we shot it in Hawaii, we were pretty insulated from the reaction worldwide, and when we went back to the mainland of the U.S. and went back with the cast for a public appearance, I was shocked to see how popular it had become. I was leaving where we were appearing, and got in my car and my fans got in sight of me and surrounded the car and started rocking it back and forth. They were so excited we were there. When we were in that rocking car, I thought this must be what the Beatles felt like. That unexpected notoriety was shocking.
CNN: Did you ever try to unravel any of the mysteries on the show?
CNN: Did you find yourself frustrated in the early seasons with your character not being able to communicate with the others, aside from Sun?
CNN: There were rumors going around that there were quite a few injuries on the set, including yourself, towards the end of filming.
CNN: You were able to be part of this great romance with Sun, played by Yunjin Kim. How has it been working with her?
CNN: Will we learn which of the Kwons is a candidate before the series ends?
CNN: You're moving on now to the new "Hawaii Five-O" series. were you hoping to stay in Hawaii or was that a coincidence?
CNN: Are you able to talk about who you play on the show?
CNN: When will you know if the show is picked up as a series?
CNN: Back to "Lost," what sort of emotions were you and the cast going through on your last day of filming?
CNN: Based on what you know about how it ends, will the hardcore fans of the show be satisfied with it?
