What Did Daniel Dae Kim *Really* Think of the LOST Ending?

The LOST star reveals his true feelings about the controversial series finale on #WWHL.

We're still not over how LOST ended after six seasons. As it turns out, it seems like no one has fully recovered from that final church scene where it becomes clear that all of the characters are dead and they have gathered together in the afterlife. "That is the No.1 question I get asked about the show," actor Daniel Dae Kim, who played Jin Kwon, said of being asked about his thoughts on LOST's ending during Thursday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live (clip above). 

The LOST series finale is one of the most divisive in TV history, but Daniel said he is a fan. "I liked it. I genuinely liked it only because, to me, it didn't matter all the questions that got unanswered and the minutiae of kind of details that everyone was obsessing about, it didn't matter as much as what happened to the characters," he explained. "And I liked to see that they were moving off together because they spent some of their lives together. Now they were gonna spend eternity together." 

Of course, LOST was filled with many memorable deaths throughout its six seasons, and the character that Daniel was happiest to see get killed off may surprise you. "There wasn't anyone I was happy to see get killed off that show," he said. "But I will say the silver lining of me getting killed off was that I was able to go shoot the pilot of Hawaii Five-O." 

In the words of Andy Cohen, "He made bank off of getting killed off!" 

And if Daniel ever got stuck on an island IRL, he knows which LOST cast members would make the best meals. "I'd say [Naveen Andrews'] (who played Sayid Jarrah) sinewy, so he's got a lot of protein there," he said. "Or Sawyer (played by Josh Holloway) because I like southern fried chicken." 

Sounds like he's really thought this through.
