Before Andrew Phung scored a job as Kimchee on CBC's hit comedy series Kim's Convenience, the Canadian actor spent his childhood developing his comedic skills in his hometown of Calgary. We asked Phung to compile a block party playlist for the place he grew up. His song picks included Tinfoil by Limblifter, Beware of the Boys (Remix) by Panjabi MC feat. Jay-Z, Hawksley Workman's Piano Blink, and Escape by Lyrique.
