LOST Media Mentions - DarkUFO

"Lost" star Kim Yun-jin has found herself a home in Los Angeles' Koreatown.

Kim, a South Korean actress who plays Sun Kwon on the ABC series, said she plans to move into the Summit on Sixth condo development when construction is complete later this year.

Kim reserved a one-bedroom unit with a den, which generally sells for between $660,000 and $880,000, sales director Tamara Kim said Tuesday.

The actress will promote the luxury condo project in Korean- and English-language magazine and newspaper advertisements, according to developer Big Rock Partners LLC. She reserved a unit while meeting with developers about promoting the project, said Big Rock spokeswoman Phyllis Hu.

"When I toured the property, I was really impressed with the design and its central location," Kim Yun-jin said in a news release.

The building sits at the intersection of two major streets cutting through Koreatown, a bustling 5-square mile area of central Los Angeles featuring hundreds of Korean-owned businesses.

Tamara Kim said the developer was eager to recruit Kim Yun-jin as its spokeswoman for the 11-story project because of her appeal to a broad swath of potential Korean and Korean-American buyers.

Kim Yun-jin became an international star with her performance on "Lost" after an acting career that included a starring role in "Swiri," a 1998 movie considered the first South Korean blockbuster.

"She's very popular in Korea and she's well known in the Korean community here," Tamara Kim said. "She has a wide audience."
