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.

Review Season 1 (as of Dec 2016)
17 December 2016 | by paultkyipSee all my reviews

Very Solid. As an Asian Canadian, I think it is great. A lot of the stories being told in season 1, there is some truth to it.

I think all of the characters are great. The Main Characters are starting to be developed and it appears like there are nice minor characters that they can build on. Currently, none of the minor characters are strong enough to have their own spin off, which would be nice (I was thinking Mr.Chin could be that guy).

Some of the episodes are better than others, but overall very enjoyable.

Bravo! Keep up the good work!
