CBS offered “large and significant salary increases” to keep Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park in the cast of “Hawaii Five-0,” the network said Wednesday after Kim said via Facebook that he was unable to come to a deal with CBS to return to the long-running series.
“Daniel and Grace have been important and valued members of “Hawaii Five-0” for seven seasons,” CBS said 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.”

Kim lifted the veil on the dealmaking process with a Facebook post Wednesday  asserting that he was not able to come to terms with CBS on a deal and that “the path to equality is rarely easy.” It’s understood that Kim and Park sought pay parity with the series’ lead actors, Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan. The fact that Kim and Park are of Asian descent while O’Loughlin and Caan are Caucasian added an inevitable racial component to the situation at a time of heightened focus on diversity at all levels of the entertainment industry. CBS executives were said to be troubled by the suggestion from media coverage of Kim and Park’s departures that race played a role in a business negotiation.
Industry sources said O’Loughlin and Caan are making about $200,000 per episode apiece for the upcoming eighth season of the show, produced by CBS Television Studios. A source close to the situation said CBS’ last per-episode salary offer to Kim was about $5,000 apart from the two lead actors, and CBS offered to set a new overall deal with Kim’s 3AD production banner. However, sources close to Kim said the differential was more significant.
