CBS is weighing in on the contract negotiations that led “Hawaii Five-0” cast members Daniel Dae Kim (Chin Ho Kelly) and Grace Park (Kono Kalakaua) to exit ahead of Season 8.The network added, “While we could not reach an agreement, we part ways with tremendous respect for their talents on screen, as well as their roles as ambassadors for the show off screen, and with hopes to work with them again in the near future.”CBS announced last week that “Hawaii Five-0” mainstays Kim and Park will not return, with their characters’ absences to be explained in the Season 8 premiere that airs on Sept. 29.

After CBS announced last week that “Hawaii Five-0” mainstays Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park are exiting ahead of Season 8, Kim took to social media on Tuesday to explain the move.Kim, who played Chin Ho Kelly on the procedural since its launch in September 2010, said he is deeply thankful to our crew, writers and everyone associated with the show — and especially the cast, who have been nothing but supportive through this entire process.“As an Asian-American actor, I know firsthand how difficult it is to find opportunities at all, let alone play a well-developed, three-dimensional character like Chin Ho,” Kim continued.

In case your epic Fourth of July hangover is finally just fading now, we regret to inform you that Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park have left CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0” over a question of compensation.The actors, who have co-starred throughout the show’s seven-year run, were unhappy with contract negotiations. Considering their Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua are key characters and fan-favorites, and that public perception over the salary issues hasn’t been particularly great for CBS, the show likely won’t grow in Season 8.What is strange is what happened last year, when the CBS drama rose to a 1.8 and 12.160 million viewers per episode, on-average.CBS had said in a statement on Wednesday that it offered “large and significant salary increases” to Kim and Park in an attempt to retain the two cast members.Kim’s goodbye message in a social media post earlier this week suggested that he felt that white actors — including O’Loughlin (McGarrett) and Caan (Danno), who are both staying with the series — get a fairer shake than he and Park did.
