Hawaii Five 0 Star Meets Kupu's Urban Corps


 

Yesterday Hawaii Five-0 shot on location just outside Kupu's training facility in Kewalo Basin Park. Daniel Dae Kim, one of the show's stars, took time to take a photo with the Urban Corps. On the show, Kim plays a police officer tasked by Hawaii's Governor to a special crime investigation team. While Dae Kim has appeared in numerous movies and television programs, he currently is most well known as "Jin," one of the most beloved characters on the recently completed science fiction series Lost.

The Kewalo Basin Park area is being transformed by Kupu's new Urban Corps. Recently it was known as a space known for rubbishness, drugs, and abandonment. Now it has been changed into to an amazing park and facility worthy of being showcased by a hit national television show.

Urban Corps has installed slate and granite in the bathrooms of the facility, landscaped the surrounding park, and will be constructing an imu pit (Hawaiian underground earth oven).

While these early achievements have been great, what's more amazing is that the young men in Urban Corps are transforming into individuals who take responsibility for the world around them, growing personally while giving back to their community.
