The Korean Economic Institute held a luncheon on Friday to commemorate the 110 years since the first Korean immigrants settled in Hawaii. The event was called "Korean-American Day" and was held in Washington.
Daniel Dae Kim from the hit TV series "Lost" was present along with notable fellow Korean-Americans Chi Young-suk, president of the International Publishers' Association, and Peter Lee, honorary professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.
The three were awarded for their achievements in strengthening the ties between Korea and the United States in their chosen fields.
When Kim was asked how he fared as an Asian actor in Hollywood, he said, "There were no huge obstacles in pursuing a career as an actor for me personally. Especially now, there is such a curiosity and fascination with the Korean culture in the United States. I hope that I can do my part well and spread a positive image of Korea to the American public".
