Kim, Park Suddenly Depart “Hawaii Five-O”

Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park have reportedly exited “Hawaii Five-0” ahead of the show’s upcoming eighth season.

Variety reports that Park and Kim had been seeking pay equality with stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan, as opposed to the 10-15% less they were apparently making now, but were unable to reach satisfactory deals with CBS Television Studios.

Their characters, Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua, will not appear in the new season and their absence will be referenced in the premiere.

Kim and Park have both been cast members since CBS premiered a rebooted version of the classic television cop show in 2010.
