Park most recently appeared on CBS drama Hawaii Five-0. She served as a series regular from 2010-17 but exited after it was reported that she declined a salary raise to stay with the show for Season 8. 

“Daniel and Grace have been important and valued members of “Hawaii Five-0” for seven seasons,” CBS said in a statement last July.

“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.”

Park's exit from the series alongside Daniel Dae Kim was a controversial one for the series, and fans were not impressed because the departure news broke after they filmed their final scenes.
