Kwon Jin-Soo (Korean name: Hangul: 권진수, Hanja: 權真秀) is one of the middle section survivors of Oceanic Flight 815. Jin is the only survivor to not speak the native language within the group - English. This caused a constant language barrier but after Sun revealed she spoke English to the group, he began to overcome this struggle and has managed to pick up disconnected words and phrases. Jin was aboard the Kahana when a C-4 explosion destroyed it, but was later found unconscious on a piece of flotsam by Danielle Rousseau and her science expedition in 1988 after a time flash. He now works for the DHARMA Initiative in 1977 as a Security Officer and appears to speak fluent English.
