"Lost" Star Daniel Kim Seized over Drink-Driving, Released on Bail

"Lost" actor Daniel Dae Kim was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving in Hawaii are later released on bail, BBC reported on Saturday. Kim, 39, who plays tough guy Jin-Soo Kwon in the TV series, said he is "deeply ashamed and embarrassed" about his arrest.

"I will fully co-operate with police," the South Korean-born actor added. He was released on bail after being stopped by police early on Thursday.Authorities explained Kim was driving erratically and was found to have a blood-alcohol level that measured twice the legal limit.

"To those I have disappointed I can only ask that you accept my heartfelt apologies. I am truly, truly sorry," apologized the star. The hearing on the case is scheduled for November 23. Kim - an original cast member - is the fourth "Lost" actor to be arrested for a traffic offence in Hawaii, where the popular drama is shot.

In 2005, former co-stars Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros pleaded guilty to driving while over the legal limit and was sentenced to five days in jail and USD 357 fine. Watros, seen on the show as the character Libby, had her driving licence suspended for 90 days and paid a USD 312 fine. Last year, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, known as Mr Eko in "Lost", was accused of disobeying a police officer and driving without a licence. The charges against him, however, were later dropped.
