'Hawaii Five-0:' CBS Says It Offered Daniel Dae Kim & Grace Park 'Significant Salary Increases'

CBS is spilling more details after Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park announced they were leaving Hawaii Five-0 ahead of the upcoming eighth season.

Daniel and Grace made the decision when they were reportedly unable to reach salary deals they were satisfied with.

They two were allegedly getting paid 10 to 15 percent less than their co-stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan.

Daniel and Grace have been important and valued members of Hawaii Five-0 for seven seasons,” CBS said Wednesday (July 5) in a statement. “We did not want to lose them and tried very hard to keep them with offers for large and significant salary increases. 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.”

    This is a disgrace. At this point in the show, the cast and characters have equal parts and they should all make the same thing. But the two minority actors get shafted. The show will not be the same without them and the network really needs to rethink this stupid decision to underpay two characters. Makes me want to boycott that show.

    At this point, i’d be happy to be EMPLOYED. even at the lowest, they’re making more money than I am (I’m latino) in 2 years per episode, probably more. I’m a legal secretary and have to handle crappy attorney attitudes all day, they’re out playing pretend in TV-land in a show that technically, no one watches anyway.
