Storyline

Kim's Convenience tells the funny and heartfelt story of the Kim family. Mr. and Mrs. Kim are Korean Canadian convenience store owners who have worked hard to give their now-twenty-something children, Janet and Jung, a better life in Canada. This single camera comedy finds laughter in the trials of running a literal 'Mom and Pop' shop while raising kids in a culture not quite your own.

This Fringe Festival Gem continues to charm
27 October 2016 | by yolanda_m_fSee all my reviews

This show lives up to my hopes! The Kim family's smiling faces have been showing up everywhere in Toronto the past few weeks, and after seeing the original play the series was based on I was thrilled to see what started as a gem from the Fringe reach a broader audience nation- wide.

Kim's convenience is fun, full or heart, and the series is finding its stride more and more with each episode. It's rooted in a flawed but deeply loving family and these relationships are so relate-able. I find this so much more satisfying than the typical family sitcom about about ultra-rich or ultra-poor families portrayed as 'just your average family.' Kim's Convenience, in being true to its characters, finds an honesty that's refreshing.
