Korean Cuture

The show highlights Korean food and Korean culture to a large extent which is something not so common in mainstream sitcoms but yes, there is a slight exaggeration at times.

The show has some extremely catchy lines and the opening music and scene adds a little element of fun to it. Though there were a few Koreans who did not approve of the accent but there sure has to be a little criticism, right? The parents on the show Mr&Mrs Kim learn about today’s culture, different sexualities and try getting over their prejudices. They try to see the world and their children in a different way while dealing with various peculiar customers. The caring and humours approach of the show lingers in your mind.

Mr Kim’s (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee) witty little jokes on his customers and his daughter while Mrs. Kim (Jean Yoon) finding a ‘cool Christian Korean boy’ for Janet will surely leave you in splits. The super rebellious son Jung ( Simu Liu) and the ambitious daughter Janet (Andrea Bang) are amidst the constant family spectacle while on the path of following their dreams.

The family dynamics are realistic while being comical and sentimental.

The abrupt end of the show on its 5th season has left all the fans confused and highly disappointed. In fact, the cast of the show are extremely surprised by this unanticipated decision.

Kim’s Convenience is a riot of emotions and surely is worth a watch.
