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.

Great comedy
13 October 2016 | by treetops422See all my reviews

Mr kim is really funny. A different kind of humor that reminds me a little of King of Queens if anything. I'm not Asian and I love it, its a one size fits all.

A lot of family comedies are overly corny and you say to yourself this is just to stupid I can't watch it anymore. For the last 2 episodes this has not been the case for Kims Convenience. Mr Kim says what a lot of us are thinking. Or at least a realistic portrayal of one mans point of view.

It's also quite unique on a cultural level. I tried to leave it out of the review and judge it on its own merit, but its refreshing and adds to the originality. No its not a lesson on Asian culture, but something different, that works.

The show is not wall to wall laughs and its not supposed to be. However Mister Kim puts out some one liners that will have you laughing out loud, not just saying lol. That mixed with mr kims outspoken ideals on current event makes for a decent show. I look forward to more episodes.
