'Hawaii Five-0’ Loses Daniel Dae Kim And Grace Park Over Pay Dispute, Series Faces Cancellation Rumors
It seems like the popular American action police series, “Hawaii Five-0” is going through some serious changes. It was just announced that two of its stars have left the show and there are rumors circulating that this signals a possible cancellation for the said show.
It has been announced that Asian stars Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park have finally exited from the popular procedural show, “Hawaii Five-0”. Their departure was finalized after their negotiations for a better pay failed. It was revealed that they were not able to reach a favorable deal with CBS Television Studios because the latter’s final offer was reportedly 10-15 percent lower than what their co-main stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan make.
Kim and Park are part of the main cast who have been with the “Hawaii Five-0” since it made its debut in 2010. Kim plays the lead role of veteran Detective Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly and Park portrays the main character of the former surfer, Officer Kono Kalakaua. The two actors have appeared in many of the show’s crossovers and have been nominated few times for their roles at various awards shows. Their departure from the popular show surely means that nothing will be the same again with the series.
Showrunner Peter Lenkov has expressed his disappointment with Kim and Park’s departure and pointed out how much they meant to the show. Lenkov even shared that the moment he met Kim, he already knew that the actor was perfect for Chin Ho Kelly in "Hawaii Five-0". Lenkov added that no matter what happens, Park and Kim will always be family to them and they will miss them dearly.
Meanwhile, a CBS spokesperson released a statement, appreciating Kim and Park’s enormous participation in the making and success of “Hawaii Five-0”. After the two actors confirmed that they’re leaving the show, rumors have sparked that the show might just be canceled even when it was already renewed for an eighth series in March 2017. Without the rest of the main cast, the show only said that they’ll lay out the departure of Park and Kim’s characters in the first episode of “Hawaii Five-0” Season 8, which is set to premiere on Sept. 29.
