SD Asian Film Festival honoring Daniel Dae Kim

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - Actor Daniel Dae Kim, currently starring in Hawaii Five-O here on CBS8 was in San Diego Saturday night, to receive an award at the San Diego Asian Film Festival.

Kim was awarded the "Influential Asian American Artist" award, for his work in back-to-back hit television series; first in LOST, and now in Hawaii Five-O.

Kim says he's humbled and flattered to be receiving the award at tonight's Gala Awards dinner. He told News 8's Marcella Lee, "LOST was such an incredible opportunity, I couldn't hope to have another that measured up to it, so I tried not to [compare]... It's like comparing children, you don't really want to do it. And I'm just really grateful that an opportunity like Hawaii Five-0 came up, because it's very rare for an actor, regardless of color or race to be on two successful television shows, and I'm very aware of that, and I knock wood everyday."

Kim is a longtime supporter of the San Diego Asian Film Festival. The 11th annual event kicked off this past Thursday, and runs through October 28th at Mission Valley Ultrastar Cinemas. More than 150 films from 20 countries are premiering; everything from comedy, action, drama, documentary and animation.

The festival is also offering free films every weekday at 4 p.m.
