Daniel Dominik Kaiser-Küblböck (27 August 1985 – 9 September 2018) was a German pop-singer and actor. His popularity came from late 2002 until 2004. He was known for appearing in the first season of Deutschland sucht den Superstar (DSDS), the German version of Pop Idol, in which he came third.
He was briefly promoted as Daniel K, but reverted to Daniel Küblböck as this name had already been trademarked.
In August 2004, the motion picture Daniel – Der Zauberer (Daniel The Wizard), which he starred in, was released as one of the worst movies of all time.
Küblböck was reported missing on 9 September 2018 after falling overboard at a cruise ship on the Labrador Sea near Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The Canadian coast guard started a search operation on site and assisting. On 10 September 2018 the coast guard abandoned its search due to the slim chance of survival in the cold water.
