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.

Not your standard CBC show
20 October 2016 | by elyseparkerwoodsSee all my reviews

This show has been papering Toronto in billboards but i still completely missed it. Cute, fun, airy - it's very broad in its appeal while still feeling very specific to the immigrant/2nd generation experience.

I also very much enjoyed seeing different communities interact on the show; it pokes fun at minority-minority friction which is hardly ever seen on TV

Regent Park neighborhood holds a lot of memories from my youth, and they do a decent job of getting the setting down, even with the pretty funny sitcom style comedy

Definitely worth a watch, the CBC fall 2016 line up has been stacked so far!
