Susan King asked Yunjin Kim what it's like to be Lost.

The series Lost has more than 13 characters portraying crash survivors on an island in the Pacific, and Yunjin Kim's demure Sun has been one of the highlights.

At the outset, Sun and her possessive husband, Jin-Soo (Daniel Dae Kim), spoke only in Korean. Recently, however, Sun revealed that she speaks English and proved that she possessed more inner strength than anyone had imagined.

Kim, 31, grew up on New York's Staten Island but has called Seoul, South Korea, home for the past eight years. She has appeared in numerous miniseries and movies, including the international hit Korean thriller Shiri.

Before reporting to work on Lost, Kim was in a popular reality show in which celebrities foster orphan babies to help them get adopted. Kim, who is single, fostered a 10-month-old boy for two weeks before a family was found for him.

Will all the secrets of the island be revealed on the finale of Lost?

"I think the writers will give us something but I think it will be another cliffhanger. You have to come back for the second season. We are just as much in the dark as the rest of the audience. We get our scripts pretty late. Sometimes we get them the day before we go to shoot."

With Sun speaking English now, you have a lot more dialogue.

"Thank god everyone knows now. I can mingle with others. I can get involved in other people's crises. Still, I get this fan mail from all over the world that says they kind of wish that Sun doesn't speak English or just speaks Korean. They liked the fact I didn't say much."

Wasn't the reaction from the Asian-American community rather negative to Sun and Jin-Soo?

In the very beginning we were sort of portrayed as a bad stereotype of an Asian couple - the subservient wife and domineering husband. But I kept saying that you have to watch the characters because they will continue to grow, and you will see the reason why he is treating her that way and why she is reacting that way. In the beginning I was really concerned that the whole Asian community would be turned off. Every character on Lost is an archetype, and . . . once they are in motion, they break away.

Sun's defining moment was defying Jin-Soo by wearing a bikini.

I got more response from coming out in a bikini. I thought it was really silly. They thought it was very symbolic, and I thought it wasn't like just a girl in a bikini - it had a meaning. It was Sun finally putting her foot down and saying, "I am going to go and take a swim."

You were born in South Korea but attended the High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York. How did you end up back in Korea as a working actress? Was it a lack of good roles in America?

No. When I graduated from Boston University, colourblind casting was in fashion so I didn't have too many problems getting roles onstage. I was constantly busy, and then back in 1997 I got cast in a Korean miniseries.

I was in New York and I had a friend who knew a producer who was coming to New York to shoot a miniseries. . . . they were going to shoot three episodes in New York and then go back to Korea. I got cast on the spot. Before I knew it, I was in Korea shooting this miniseries. And it took off.

What was the miniseries about?

It was about a cosmetics company. I played this sassy woman. I sort of had an American accent in my Korean, but it kind of worked with the character. People responded to the character. And then I got cast in this movie called Shiri. That was my first feature film, and it came over here. It was a big hit.

Was your character in the film anything like Sun?

I was playing a La Femme Nikita-type role - a North Korean spy who falls in love with her enemy. From then on I played every cool girl with a gun. My nickname in Korean is "Woman Warrior".
