Interview with Yunjin Kim (Sun)
First of all, let's rewind to the season four finale. In the past, Jin had somehow managed to repeatedly cheat death. When you received the script, were you convinced his time was finally up?
Yunjin Kim: Actually, I knew that he was going to stick around, so I didn't make that frantic call to Daniel Dae Kim saying, "What's going on?" [smiles].
When the freighter exploded with Jin onboard, your pain and anguish was Emmy worthy. How difficult was it tapping into that emotion?
Even though we were in the helicopter, it was all filmed on a sound stage, on the ground, and inside, with green screen all around us. We had two humungous fans going throughout the whole scene, too. I had this little tiny spot on the floor that they taped there -- that is where we looked for the freighter, with Jin running out calling, "Sun! Sun! I'm here!" Obviously, it was all in my imagination -- and it's always hard to act in that type of green-screen environment. My whole body was shaking afterwards, though. I was drinking water and Jorge [Garcia] said that my hands were shaking. I said, "I know. I need to calm down." And of course, we had to do it over and over, because when the camera wasn't always on me, it was on all the other characters, too, so I had to scream my ass off the whole day. It was challenging. The scene was frantic -- so emotional, and so terrible all at the same time. It was extremely well written.
What was your reaction to the island actually disappearing?
When we shot it with these two noisy fans going and director Jack Bender shouting, "Look left! Look right! The island is gone! It's amazing! You guys can't believe it!" we were trying to react to his comments. Parts of it were funny, but I kept wondering, "What's going to happen to all of our friends on the island?" Then I thought, because we've already dealt with time travel with Desmond's character in one of my favorite episodes, The Constant, maybe it had something to do with time travel. I had no idea until I came back and started doing season five that my instincts were right for the first time!
What are your plans over the summer hiatus?
I am doing an amazing movie in Korea, which will probably open during the Christmas holiday season. It's about a bunch of women in prison and my character ends up killing her abusive husband. She's actually six months pregnant, and gives birth in prison. But she's only allowed to nurse her baby for 18 months and then has to give it to an adoption agency, because she is an orphan, and has no family to look after her son. The subplot sees these women inmates start a choir together and bond through music. At the end, they get to be really good and are invited outside of the prison to sing at a concert, and that's where she has a short reunion with her boy. It's a real tearjerker, a really feel-good movie. Ultimately, it's about doing the best you can under the difficult circumstances. It's very well written.
