Daniel Dae Kim's Mug Shot + Statement

Lost star Daniel Dae Kim was arrested early Thursday morning in Hawaii for DUI.

The 39-year-old actor’s mug shot was released yesterday and he just issued the following statement to TMZ:

“I am deeply ashamed and embarrassed by the events of Thursday morning. It saddens me to know that I jeopardized the welfare of the kind people of Hawaii, a community that I love and call my home. It is my intention to cooperate fully with the police and I am grateful to them for their sensitivity throughout this matter. To my friends, family, colleagues and fans, thank you for your kind words of support. To those I have disappointed I can only ask that you accept my heartfelt apologies.”

    Whoa. A lot of people may be getting arrested but not many come up with a good statement like this one.

  • Natalie

    #2 Regina, LMAO. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    What he did was extremely stupid. I hope he learns from it.

  • josh

  • the_original_nika

    lmao #2 Regina, maybe he want to look good since he probably thought it was gonna get leaked on the internet.

  • anonymous

    Best looking mug shot I’ve ever seen.
    I believe these celebrity DUI occurances are not a new phenomenon. This has been occuring for decades, but, without a studio system to pay off the police department or, donate money for police causes, these DUI’s now become public knowledge

    I hope and pray it doesn’t take the death of anyone at the hands of a celebrity under the influence of alcohol, for this careless behavior to continue. Hire a damn driver, you make enough money.

    He will always be Gavin on Angel for me. LOL!

  • betduke

    Just goes to show you how hair and make-up as well as lighting can make such a big difference on these t.v. a-holes’ looks. They’re just as ugly as the rest of us but stupider.

  • What???

    Is this dude Korean? He’s ugly!!! Must be Korean!!

  • Tucker

    Ewww, hella ugly. And fugly.

  • mm

    Best and most sincere sounding apology I have ever heard from a celebrity!

  • bebe

    What’s up with the Einstein hair?

  • riley

    koreans arent ugly. WTF

  • Natalie

    #11, you need to keep your mean spirited comments to yourself and also stop trying to draw attention to yourself. it just makes you look stupid.

  • bongers

    ditto #16. don’t let race get into this #11.

  • Kelsey

    Like what everyone said above.
    GET lost #11.
    How rude and ignorant of you to say that he’s ugly just because he’s Korean.
    I’m Korean myself, and I find that so rude.

  • girlyboy

    That man is so damn hot…hottest mug picture ever!

  • alicia

    “6 josh
    i really hope this breaks the lost trend though; ana lucia, eko, libby, all got dui’s”
    In defense of Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko), he WAS NOT arrested for a DUI. He was arrested for driving without a license and disobeying a police officer. He wasn’t drunk.

  • Buckeyegurl

    #11 is a troll, a racist one at that. DDK seems genuinely sorry for his actions. It was very irresponsible and dangerous. I hope they don’t kill him off, I love Jin!!
