Jin-Soo Kwon

I just want to note that very little in my collection representing Jin is as cool as the set of handcuffs purchased by my friend Rob Perrin from the LOST Auction.  He also purchased several other costume items.
I highly recommend you check out his blog, 

UPDATE! Rob was incredibly generous and gifted me with
one of the handcuffs from his LOST Auction lot while
we were housemates at Comic-Con.

I've framed it for display in a shadowbox with picture of Jin
holding up the same handcuff. 

Daniel Dae Kim portrayed Jin.  
The transformation and redemption of his character 
over six seasons was remarkable.
And on a personal note, the death of Jin and Sun ranked in the top
five tearjerker moments of LOST for me.

Jin is represented in my collection by:
