Following the announcement last week that Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park wouldn’t be returning for season 8 of Hawaii Five-0 as a result of payment issues, Kim has gone on his Facebook page on Wednesday to say farewell to his fans on. He said:
As an Asian American actor, I know first-hand how difficult it is to find opportunities at all, let alone play a well developed, three dimensional character like Chin Ho. I will miss him sincerely. What made him even more special is that he was a representative of a place my family and I so dearly love. It has been nothing short of an honor to be able to showcase the beauty and people of Hawaii every week, and I couldn’t be prouder to call these islands home.
