Chin Ho Kelly

Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim)The new role of Chin Ho Kelly is a great nod to Hawaii's multicultural tradition. The addition of the Kelly name makes Chin Ho 'hapa' - the local term for multi-racial. In Hawaii, it would not be unusual to see someone with the last name Kelly as one-quarter Korean, one-half Chinese, and one-quarter Irish. Daniel Dae Kim gives the new Hawaii 5-0 instant credibility on casting because we already love him for his role in Lost.
