An excerpt with Yunjin Kim (Sun Kwon) as featured in issue #28 of The Official LOST Magazine.
With such an ambiguous ending to season five, it had to be an exciting moment to crack open the first script of season six. What were you anticipating finding out most?
Yunjin Kim: The first thing I was looking for was if we were in the same time period. Did the H-bomb work? We keep missing each other [smiles]. It's surprising.
And just missing the other group means Sun still hasn't reunited with Jin...
I think we will play that to the end. We haven't gotten that reunion and I don't know when it will happen.
At this point in the story, I think you can arguably say Sun and Jin are the couple fans are rooting for the most. Penny and Desmond got their moment and now fans really want to see you guys get your moment. Do you still want that 'happy ending'?
I don't think we are going to get a happy ending. This is LOST. If it were another show I'm sure they would reunite and it would all be happy. They would go back to Seoul, Korea, and raise Ji Yeon. But again, this is LOST [smiles]!
I think once they are together again everything is resolved, so I think that's why they are postponing it. Having us build up to who-knows-what and then have that flow over us… I'm thinking if we do get back together there will be something that separates us again. It's also the only way for conflict to occur to make it dramatic. We need conflicts. If they are just a happy, married couple, that's not very interesting. I kind of like this delay; I'm really enjoying it.
The separation last season has really allowed us to witness a new Sun – this confident, goal-oriented woman that runs a corporation and is a single mother. How is she dealing with all of the crazy going on with her group now?
Sun is sustaining and surviving. She's going with the flow while it's going. For Sun, finding her husband is her main goal and it's been her main focus for the past two seasons. But now, coming back to this island and trying to figure it all out: Locke is dead... but he's not... why is the black smoke chasing us... There is so much at stake.
Sun has had quite the metamorphosis from that quiet woman buttoning her sweater in the pilot. What are you most proud of about her evolution?
Talk about "You've come a long way, baby!" I think that represents Sun. Starting from the pilot where Jin barks at her for her sweater and we actually go back to that very moment in a flash-sideways. I feel like she's made a complete circle. It will be interesting – if that reunion happens – what the dynamic will be between them.
