#Leftist network #CBS pays Asian co-stars less

Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park, stars of CBS’ “Hawaii Five-O,” will not appear in the upcoming season of the show, according to Variety.

Kim and Park play the characters Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua and the characters’ absence will be referenced in the season premiere, according to Variety. Both actors have been on the rebooted classic cops drama since it started in 2010, according to Vox.

Park and Kim were seeking to be paid the same amount as stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan. CBS’ final offer to Kim and Park was reportedly 10-15 percent lower than what O’Loughlin and Caan make, according to Variety.
