"Shiri" and "Lost"

I was rewatching the Korean movie Shiri last night, just the conclusion -- so sad -- and realized that the actress who plays the movie's female protagonist is on the show "Lost." Though Yoon-Jin Kim speaks with a foreign accent on "Lost," she grew up on Staten Island, attended the High School of Performing Arts (the school in Fame) and earned an acting degree from Boston University. Anyway, I thought that was interesting how an Asian-American actress would end up playing a foreigner on an American show. At least "Lost" is careful with character development, and I appreciate the fact that two Asians feature so prominently on a primetime sitcom.
