  • Yunjin: (On her favorite moment on "Lost") It was a flashback of, umm, Sun and Jin, and how they actually met, in the beginning. I remember, Steven Williams, our producer, directed that episode, and... in the very last moment, where, Jin just gets fired, and then he's walking, and he's sad, and then he's... he bumps into Sun. And there's a moment between Jin and Sun, where they're just looking at each other. And, I just... I really like that moment.

  • Yunjin: Well, luckily in Korea, there are no paparazzi. Your personal life is really your personal. I mean, of course, people know who you are, so if you walk around, you're not as free as... you know, someone who's not a celebrity. People like coming up to see you, but you're safe, in a way. So, I've never had problems... walking around, doing my own little things... Running errands out in Korea, because, sure they'll say hi, sometimes they want to take pictures. Sometimes they make a huge fuss... sometimes they make very little. It varies. But, umm... So I have to say, it's a lot more... I guess, celebrity-friendly in Korea than in America.

  • Yunjin: (On her favorite character on "Lost") I have to say Locke. He's a weird one. The fact that he was crippled and the fact that now he now can walk, he has such a traumatic past life with his father, with his loved one. He seems to have such an interesting essence that's very different from any other character that I've ever seen on television so I'd have to say it's Terry's character.

  • Yunjin: (on her first acting role in "My Fair Lady") I was cast as only an extra, but that day, I stood on the stage and sang loudly in my own voice... When singing and acting on stage, I didn't feel the least bit awkward. I felt so at home under the lights... Something about being on stage just felt right.

  • Yunjin: I write out my English lines in Korean, phonetically. And I memorize it in Korean, versus English. It’s just easier to memorize.

  • Yunjin: (about "Lost") As soon as I read the script, I knew that it was either going to be the best show or the worst ever. Like, "You're on that weird show! On the island, a Fantasy Island type of thing." It was either going to be really good, or really bad.
