Here’s a little “LOST” tidbit to kick off the week! This morning, the production crew descended upon old Kaimuki, taking over the “Toys N Joys” store on Waialae Ave. For geeks and nerds of a particular bent, the place is a piece of heaven, a Mecca of video games, anime, J-Pop, K-Pop, action figures, models and trinkets… But for “LOST,” it was a toy store in Korea.

Yes, Daniel Dae Kim was there, back in his element, and reportedly friendly and approachable on the set. The store was only slightly rearranged, the “LOST” set crew covering up brand names and logos with random Korean art and signs. Details of what transpired behind the store’s cluttered windows when cameras rolled are unsurprisingly slim, but I’m told it involved a big, plushy panda. Yes, yet another bear.
