After All These Years, We See That Mysterious "Gilmore Girls" Character In The Revival

It's been 84 years... (Warning: Spoilers within, obvs.)

We were left with many unanswered questions after the 2007 Gilmore Girls series finale, but none loomed larger than one: Where the fuck was Mr. Kim all these years?

Warner Bros. Television

He was referred to multiple times over the course of the show, but we NEVER SAW HIM. We were left to assume he was a living spirit with no corporeal form.

He didn't even walk Lane down the aisle at her wedding.

HOWEVER, in the second episode of the Gilmore Girls revival, "Spring," Lane and Rory are hanging out at the Stars Hollow International Festival, helping Mrs. Kim with the Korean food station.

Then, Lane just looks to her left right, and casually SEES HER FATHER.

LO AND BEHOLD, THERE HE IS. THERE'S MR. KIM.

JUST STANDING THERE, NO BIG DEAL, NOT A DISEMBODIED SPIRIT AFTER ALL.

Aaaand that's the only time we see him.
