Daniel Dae Kim will have a recurring role on "The Good Doctor," according to Deadline. He is one of the executive producers on the ABC medical drama. Spoiler alerts are ahead!

Kim will play Dr. Jackson Han, a brash new Chief of Surgery at St. Bonaventure. Dr. Han's arrival will shake things up at St. Bonaventure and specifically put Dr. Shaun Murphy's (Freddie Highmore) career in jeopardy.

Kim will make his debut in Episode 15 and has been booked to appear in the last four episodes of the 18-episode second seasons.

Kim was a big part in getting "The Good Doctor" off the ground as he identified and brought over the Korean format the series is based on. When the project was sold to ABC in fall 2016 and piloted in spring 2017, Kim was starring on the CBS series "Hawaii Five-0."

"As a fan of our show, I'm thrilled to be doing a guest arc with such a talented, kind and hard-working cast. David [Shore] and I have been looking for the right opportunity and we've found a character that's both dynamic and surprising," said Kim. "It's an added bonus for my character to be directed by our own Freddie Highmore, who's proving to be as talented behind the camera as in front of it. it's been a lot of fun already and I'm excited for the episodes to air."

The Good Doctor revolves around Shaun Murphy, a young autistic surgeon who has savant syndrome.

The series also stars Richard Schiff as Dr. Aaron Glassman, Antonia Thomas as Dr. Claire Browne, Nicholas Gonzalez as Dr. Neil Melendez, Hill Harper as Dr. Marcus Andrews, Tamlyn Tomita as Allegra Aoki, Christina Chang as Dr. Audrey Lim, Fiona Gubelman as Dr. Morgan Reznick, Will Yun Lee as Dr. Alex Park and Paige Spara as Lea Dilallo.
