"HAWAII FIVE-0" regular Daniel Dae Kim handled himself exceptionally well in a lively, humorous interview by "CBS This Morning" co-hosts Charlie Rose, Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King Jan. 17.

Charlie asked him about motorcycles and Daniel said he had to learn to ride a bike on "Five-0" and now owns one — although years ago he promised his dad he would never ride them.
