Born August 4, 1968 in Busan, South Korea, Daniel Dae Kim moved to Pennslyvania with his family at the age of two. Before he landed the role of Jin-Soo Kwon on ABC's Lost, he had recurring roles on numerous television shows including Angel and 24. Despite playing a character who mainly speaks Korean, Kim's first language is English and is not fluent in Korean, meaning that he has to learn how to speak his Korean lines for the show.
To gamers, Kim is probably best known for his voice-acting in the Saints Row
series on the Xbox 360, where he voices Johnny Gat
, a lieutenant of the 3rd Street Saints. He also voice-acted his 24 television character, Agent Tom Baker
, for 24: The Game
