'Hawaii Five-0': Daniel Dae Kim on staying in Hawaii, his character's background.

Daniel Dae Kim isn't quite sure how he managed to change acting jobs -- from "Lost" to "Hawaii Five-0" -- while staying in the place he's called home for the past six years. He's just happy it did.

"That's a really good question," he tells Zap2it when we ask him about it on the "Five-0" set. "For all the stars to have aligned for me to stay in Hawaii the way I have, I feel very lucky. Fortunate is a better word."

Transitioning from one Oahu-filmed show to another has allowed him to keep himself and his family in one place, although it has made for some odd moments as "Hawaii Five-0" films in some of the same spots where he spent several years playing Jin on "Lost."

"We actually shot the other day on the beach where I shot five years of 'Lost,'" Kim says. "That was a little bit surreal to kind of go back to familiar territory, but with different surroundings."

In the reboot of "Hawaii Five-0," Kim plays Chin Ho Kelly, a former Honolulu police detective who was driven off the force but finds a way back in the game when McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) offers him a job on his team.
