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.

Very surprised
7 December 2016 | by khaines-87801See all my reviews

Watched the 1st 8 episodes in a row by 3rd was hooked. TV needs more of these gentle comedies without the raunchy plots and sexual overtones or violence which dominates most programs today. Very impressed for a Canadian production . The main character is very likable and I like the banter between him and his friend in the show. Not sure why they have the son and father distanced in the show but probably for plot lines later on n the series. I give the show at least 4 seasons and would not be surprised to see it get a bot of a cult following to it. looking forward to the rest of the season as I have watched 9 to date. Would surely recommend any family or kids to watch it as it is very tame in script.
