The Asian stars of 'Hawaii Five-0' quit the show after CBS refused to pay them as much as their white costars

Stars Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park have departed CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0.” Their characters, Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua, will not appear in the upcoming eighth season. The characters’ absence will be referenced in the season premiere.

Sources tell Variety that Park and Kim had been seeking pay equality with stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan, but were unable to reach satisfactory deals with CBS Television Studios, which produces the series. CBS’s final offer to Kim and Park was believed to have been 10-15% lower than what O’Loughlin and Caan make in salary. O’Laughlin and Caan each have deals that also provide them percentage points on the show’s back end.

BOTH ACTORS WERE GOOD IN THE SHOW...BUT THEY WERE SUPPORTING ACTORS...DEFINITLY NOT THE LEAD STARS LIKE MCLOUGHLIN IS...AND CAAN ARE. ALSO THE STORY ARC FOR BOTH CHIN-HO KELLY AND HIS COUSIN HAD PRETTY MUCH RUN IT'S COURSE..THEY BOTH HAD EPISODES THROUGHOUT THE SERIES THAT DID FEATURE THEIR STORYLINES...THEY BOTH WERE OFFERED MORE MONEY...HOWEVER KIM HAS A PRODUCTION COMPANY...INTO DIRECTING TOO NOW AND HAS SEVERAL PROJECTS IN THE WORKS...PARK HAS FAMILY ON THE MAINLAND AND HARD TO BE AWAY FROM KIDS FOR SUCH LENGTHS OF TIME WHEN IN A SERIES...SO THESE ISSUES I THINK CONTRIBUTED TO THEIR DECISIONS TO LEAVE THE SHOW...AND I THINK THE SHOW WILL SURVIVE WITHOUT THEM...NEW CAST MEMBERS HAVE BEEN ADDED...EXCITED TO SEE WHERE THEY WILL LEAD TOO. ALEX LIVES IN HAWAII...AND STILL ONE OF HIS FANS SINCE THE MOONLIGHT DAYS.


THIS IS A MISLEADING HEADLINE DESIGNED TO PROVOKE A NEGATIVE RESPONSE...NOT A RACIAL THING AT ALL...STILL PLENTY OF ASIAN REGUALR APPEARING ACTORS ON THE SHOW...THAT HAVE BEEN THERE SINCE THE SHOW BEGAN.

It was the headline on the story, I just copy/pasted from Variety. The link is listed

OH....I WASN'T QUESTIONING YOU ABOUT THE HEADLINE...THIS IS TYPICAL OF NEWS MEDIA AND POSTS ON FB TO CREATE FALSE NARRATIVE OR APPEAR PROVOCATIVE.
