OK, we accept that Daniel Dae Kim has moved on and participated at a Comic-Con panel Friday for ‘Hawaii-Five-0.’

During the panel, the former ‘Lostie’ said, ‘I’m happy to be on a show that has a theme song.’


Well, CBS is making the most of that theme song. The network has released a music video for the modern arrangement of the iconic theme song, which features footage from the recording session and clips from the new series starring Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Grace Park and Kim.

Series composer Brian Tyler (‘Fast and Furious’) assembled and conducted 35 musicians, including renowned players from the original TV series: David Duke on the first horn, Chuck Findley on first trumpet and percussionist Bob Zimmitti. The original theme song was composed by Morton Stevens.

The updated version of the iconic series premieres on Sept. 20 at 10 p.m. Here’s the new music video:
