Daniel's interests extend beyond just the entertainment industry, however. He recently served as Cultural Envoy and Member of the U.S. Presidential Delegation for the United States at the World Expo in Korea.
Recently, Kim has been working alongside Mike Kim, counter-human trafficking expert, as an activist for those affected by the worldwide trafficking epidemic. After giving up his financial planning business in 2003, Mike Kim took a one-way ticket to China where he would later lead many sex trafficking victims from North Korea into Southeast Asia while working undercover as a North Korean taekwondo student. Currently, Mike's book, Escaping North Korea, and life story are being developed into a feature film; Daniel is set to play Mike's role on screen.
Kim's film career began with roles in the films The Jackal, For Love of the Game, The Hulk, Spider-Man 2 and The Cave, as well as the Academy Award-winning Crash. On television, he has guest-starred on numerous shows, including CSI on the Network, ER and two seasons on 24 as CTU Agent Tom Baker.
