Daniel Dae Kim is arguably the most well-know Asian male celeb on TV today. In his role as Jin on ABC’s Lost, Kim has garnered tons of attention for his heritage (Korean), his acting, and his ripped body. People named him one of the sexiest men alive in 2005 and TV Guide followed up with a similar award in 2006. Daniel Dae Kim was born in South Korea but grew up on the East Coast of the US. Incidentally, I was watching an old rerun of Seinfeld the other day when up popped a young Daniel Dae Kim playing a med student with just a couple of lines.
