'''Yunjin Kim''' (Korean 김윤진, '''Kim Yunjin''') played the role of Sun-Hwa Kwon.

Born in Korea, Kim emigrated to the U.S. when she was 10, and was mostly raised in New York City.  From her early days, she trained in dance (ballet, jazz, Afro-Caribbean and Peking Opera).  Kim graduated from the High School of Performing Arts (in NY), and then went on to the British Drama Academy and Boston University, where she received a BFA in Acting.

She was brought back to her native land South Korea for roles in the drama series ''A Gorgeous Vacation'', and stayed to continue acting in Asia (in miniseries, ''Foreboding'' and ''Wedding Dress'', as well as movies such as ''Shiri'' and ''Milae'').  She was already a bankable star with Asian fans before she crossed the Pacific again to audition for ''Lost''.  She originally auditioned for the role of Kate, but the producers were so impressed with her performance that the roles of Sun and Jin were created. {{Crossref}}
