CBS Made Wrong Call on Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Deals

Hawaii Five-0 stars Grace Park and Daniel Dae Kim leave the show after seven seasons due to a pay difference between them and their white co-stars Alex O’Laughlin and Scott Caan: 

“Season 8 of “Hawaii Five-0” will return to the special task force in the Aloha State — a state where 57.4% of residents claim some Asian heritage, according to the U.S. Census — without all of its Asian regular characters. Actors Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park, who have been integral parts of the cast since the show’s inception in 2010, will be leaving the series after contract negotiations reached an impasse.”
