Kim’s Convenience writer sings a rap dedicated to Hawaii Five-0’s departing stars

Kim’s Convenience is big in Canada, but nowhere else yet, so you might not have heard of its writer Ins Choi. You’ll probably have heard of Hawaii Five-0, though, although you may not have heard that stars Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park are leaving the show, allegedly because they’re not being given the same salaries as their white co-stars (CBS, of course, denies it).

Anyway, during a performance of the original stage play at New York’s Signature Theatre Center this Saturday, former actor Choi dedicated a rap to Park and Kim about the problems that face Asian actors.
