Canadian sitcom “Kim’s Convenience” begins airing in Korea

This past Sunday, the Canadian sitcom “Kim’s Convenience” broadcast for the first time on TV Chosun. According to IMDb, the show details the “misadventures” of a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in Toronto. The show first started airing in Canada in 2016, and after three months, over 900,000 people had turned in to watch the program.

Since then, actor Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, who plays “Appa,” the father of the family, won the Best Actor Award. Moreover, the producers greenlighted a third season that will begin later this year.

Online video streaming site Netflix took notice craze and popularity of the program and picked it up during the second season. Netflix likely played a huge part in the show’s growth by distributing it to audiences worldwide.

Meanwhile, TV Chosun will air “Kim’s Convenience” at 11:50 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

this show's so cute. CBC lucked out with this and Schitt's Creek. It's been a long time since we had good canadian made sitcoms.

I love this show! Watched the latest episode as soon as it was out online and I had such a good laugh

There's articles out there that nicely outline Ins Choi's background and how meaningful this is for people. Here's a recent one.

I tried watching this when it was on Netflix. I think I got through 2 or 3 episodes and it just wasn't my thing.
