The San Diego Asian Film Festival
celebrates its eleventh season at the Mission Valley UltraStar
Cinema at Hazard Center, October
21-28. During the Festival’s Gala
Awards Dinner on October 23, the Festival will present actor Daniel Dae Kim
with the INFLUENTIAL ASIAN AMERICAN ARTIST award.
“There are very few actors, not to
mention Asian American actors, who have the privilege of starring in
back-to-back popular television series like Daniel Dae Kim,” says San Diego
Asian Film Foundation executive director, Lee Ann Kim. “Through his groundbreaking role on
LOST and now his role on HAWAII FIVE-O, he has opened and continues to open
doors for other Asian American artists.
He also serves as a role model off-camera as an advocate for Asian
American issues and a devoted father.
We are grateful he is joining us to accept this award.”

DANIEL DAE KIM
Through the diversity of his roles on stage and screen, Daniel Dae Kim continues to expand our perceptions of the Asian American man. In characters ranging from the King of Siam, a Shakespearean hero, a social worker for the Chicago needy, to a counter terrorist agent, his work has consistently proven to transcend the historical barriers of race and stereotype.
Daniel's most recent work on ABC's "Lost," is no exception. As Jin Soo Kwon, a Korean businessman and reluctant enforcer for his father-in-law, his character transformed from an overprotective "traditional" husband to a man who re-learns how to live and love. His portrayal of this multi-faceted character signaled a breakthrough for primetime network television, and has helped make Lost a worldwide hit since its debut in 2004.
Since then, both Daniel and the show have been widely recognized for their excellence. Sharing a 2006 Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Ensemble, the Korean American actor's universal appeal was also recognized by "People" Magazine, which named him one of the 'Sexiest Men Alive' in 2005, as well as "TV Guide," which recognized him as one of 'TV's Sexiest Men' in 2006. In that same year, Daniel was individually honored with an AZN Asian Excellence Award, a Multicultural Prism Award and a Vanguard Award from the Korean American Coalition, all for Outstanding Performance by an Actor. In 2009, his recognition continues with the prestigious KoreAm Journal Achievement Award in the field of Arts and Entertainment.
