"Lost" star Daniel Dae Kim pleaded no contest to drunken driving charges and was ordered to pay a $500 fine. Whether his character on the popular castaway drama absorbs more punishment remains to be seen.

Kim, 40, who plays Jin-Soo Kwon, was arrested Oct. 25 when a police officer spotted him driving erratically in Honolulu. His blood alcohol content was 0.168, more than double the state's legal limit.

District Judge William Cardwell scolded Kim Thursday, saying, "You need to understand that 0.168 is more that double the legal limit. It means you were seriously impaired. And it just cannot happen again. It's simply too dangerous."

"Believe me, sir, I do," Kim replied.
