Kim's investment in burger joint ties him to state

As part of the media blitz for the opening of The Counter, the new build-your-own burger restaurant in Kahala Mall, I had breakfast with restaurateur D.K. Kodama and "Lost" actor Daniel Dae Kim. It was the breakfast of champions, really — a loco moco with kim chee on the side.

"I can't tell you how great it is to live in a place where everybody knows what kim chee is," said Kim, whose investment in the restaurant, the first of three, is a way of setting down roots in Hawaii, where he wants to stay after "Lost" wraps up in another season and a half.
D.K. asked him to invest in The Counter franchise while the two were on the links at Waialae. "I didn't realize we were doing business," says Kim. "I thought I was there so he could kick my butt on the golf course. Then D.K. says to me, 'How would you like to eat lots of great burgers for free?'"
