How Bruce Lee kicked down the doors for the creator of Kim's Convenience
Ins Choi, creator of Kim's Convenience, tells us how a martial arts film changed his view of the world
When Choi saw Enter the Dragon growing up, Lee was the first Asian actor that he had ever seen not only playing a lead English-speaking role but also "kicking ass" doing so. Fast-forward a few decades later, and Choi is now the one breaking down barriers with his award-winning play and the upcoming CBC TV series Kim's Convenience, which centres on a Korean-Canadian family.
In this video, Choi sits down with CBC Arts to tell us about how Bruce Lee's performance in Enter The Dragon changed his view of the world.
Kim's Convenience premieres on October 11 at 9pm (930 NT) on CBC TV.
Watch Exhibitionists Sunday at 4:30pm (5pm NT) on CBC TV.
