Character Bio

Lane Kim photo
Lane Kim later Lane Hyun-kyung Van Gerbig was born and raised in Stars Hollow, Connecticut. The rock-and-roll loving child of strict Seventh-day Adventist, Veganism|vegan, Korean parents (Mr. Kim is never seen, nor are his whereabouts ever mentioned, but Lane has referred to "parents", plural, on many occasions, and said "My mother and father" in Season 2, and is seen getting into a car and driven away by a faceless man at one point in the series, while being taken to the airport where she is to go to Korea for the summer), Lane was forced to start hiding who she was from her family at a young age. She used loose floorboards and her closet to hide her enormous collection of non-Christian music and books along with her makeup that her mother disapproved of. She and her best friend Rory Gilmore used hollowed out books and a variety of pretexts to try and help Lane live a more acceptable life, all the while resenting her mother's over protective strictness, which she viewed as controlling rather than tough love.

Lane attended Stars Hollow High with Rory until Rory enrolled in Chilton Academy. Lane describes herself as a "dedicated audiophile," although this is a bit of a misnomer, since audiophiles, by definition, are most interested in the technical details associated with high fidelity recording and playback, whereas Lane is actually interested in the history of modern music, its production, its influence upon pop culture, making her more of a music fanatic. Eventually, she joins a band, consisting of Dave Rygalski, Brian Fuller, and Zach Van Gerbig (Todd Lowe). Lane and Dave began a romantic relationship that largely involved intricate strategies for hiding their relationship from her mother and their bandmates. In Season 3, however, they are forced to make their relationship public. The next year, Dave moved to California for college. Sebastian Bach's character, Gil, replaced Dave on guitar, and Zach replaced Dave as Lane's romantic interest. During the time of Rory and Lorelai's estrangement from each other in Season 6, Lane's relationship with her mother as well as with her band is featured more prominently than in the past. In Season 6, the band splits and later reunites. Zach proposes to Lane, and they are married quickly. In Season 7, Lane is pregnant with twins. At the end of "Gilmore Girls Only" (Season 7, Episode 17), Lane gives birth to twin boys, Kwan and Steve.
