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.

Surprisingly cute
11 August 2018 | by just_in_caseSee all my reviews

Ill admit 5 seconds in I was almost offended but immediately it laid into jokes not about racial caricatures but about family and life for korean-americans. Theres a charming honesty to it that begs me to believe the players are real. There's a part in the first episode where the mr kims inquires as to why a drag queen chooses to live the way they do and its not funny. I mean theres no any joke. The whole scene has warmth. They pick and choose where to make us laugh and theres no laugh track thank god. Im hooked.
