Whatever Jin's fate may be, Daniel Dae Kim wants the remainder of his stay in Hawaii to be relatively smooth.

The Lost star pleaded no contest to DUI charges Friday in Honolulu stemming from his Oct. 25, 2007, arrest after a cop spotted him driving erratically and pulled him over.

For his misdemeanor offenses, Kim's license has been suspended for six months and he was ordered to perform 72 hours of community service and pay a $500 fine and $212 in court fees.

"You need to understand that 0.168 [his blood-alcohol level at the time of his arrest] is more that double the legal limit," District Judge William Cardwell told Kim in court. "It means you were seriously impaired. And it just cannot happen again. It's simply too dangerous."

"Believe me, sir, I do [understand]," Kim responded.

"I'm just grateful and relieved that this matter has been resolved," the 40-year-old actor told reporters after the hearing. "It's been a pretty difficult time for my family and me. But I'm glad I had a chance to take responsibility for my mistake."
