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.

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!
