Keep reading this Danny Kim Bio to learn all about him
Danny Kim On The Courtship
Danny Kim was the only Asian-American featured on the inaugural season of The Courtship. And he turned that opportunity to show how “Asian men can be sexy and awesome.”
Also, he wanted to let the world know that “when an Asian man falls for a woman, he will do everything to go for the woman he desires.”
But with that being said, Danny admits that he doesn’t represent all Asian men.
Joining him this season, in the quest for Nicole Rémy’s love were his co-stars — Rick Edwards, Lincoln Chapman, Daniel Bochicchio, Jaquan Holland, Peter Saffa, Alex “Achilles” King, and 10 others.
Unlike other dating series, The Courtship also featured the lead, Nicole’s side of the family (brought in for her help). They were — Dr. Claire Spain-Rémy (mom), Claude Rémy (dad), Danielle “Danie” Baker (older sister), and Tessa Cleary (best friend).
For Danny, the hardest part about being on the show was against other suitors for one woman. Especially, when it came to fighting for the woman he can “possibly love,” Danny got very competitive. So competitive that it was difficult for him to control his emotions at times.
On the flip side, the easiest part for the star was being “genuine” on the show. He felt like he could just be himself on the show and that was enough for him to win the heroine.
Overall, Danny had an unforgettable experience with the whole filming process. Being transported back to the regency era and “courting” his possible future queen, felt like a dream world.
But among his countless memories, one part stands out the most — “When I first approached the castle where the heroine lived and saw her for the first time,” he reminisced.

According to him, his mother still has those letters his dad wrote to her.
But those letters weren’t the only thing that inspired Danny. On his parent’s 40th anniversary, Danny pulled his dad aside to ask, “Do you still love Mom?” And the reply he received was “‘Yes, she’s my best friend.”
“And that’s when I went onto the show, to find my best friend that I can fall in love with,” he explained.
