Daniel Dae Kim, who plays castaway Jin-Soo Kwon on ABC’s Lost, told SCI FI Wire that he is OK with his character’s fate, whatever it may be. And, no, he wouldn’t say what that is.
Fans know that Jin’s ultimate fate was thrown into doubt (spoilers ahead!) in the recent episode “Ji Yeon,” in which Jin’s wife, Sun (Yunjin Kim), is seen in a flash-forward at what appears to be Jin’s grave.
“You know, if he doesn’t make it, it’s been a great ride,” Daniel Dae Kim said in an interview at the Hollywood premiere on May 7 of his upcoming A&E miniseries The Andromeda Strain. “It’s been an incredible opportunity. If he does make it, it means the roller-coaster ride continues. Either way, it’s a win-win.”
Kim added that the producers have told him some of what’s coming up. “A few things,” he said. “But very broad, general strokes.”
Kim just wrapped shooting of season four, which resumed with new episodes in late April after an interruption because of the Hollywood writers’ strike. Season four wraps up May 29.
Is Kim ready to say goodbye to the island for good? “The writers–regardless of whether we’re ready to say goodbye to it or not–the writers have such a way of continuing to delve into the characters,” he said. “So there’s always seem to be more story to tell.” That sounds like no. Lost airs Thursdays at 10 p.m
