Originally published on January 8, 2019
Simu Liu plays Jung on the hit CBC show Kim's Convenience, the first and only Canadian television show that has a cast of lead actors who are all Asian. Ever since the first two seasons dropped on Netflix, the show has been gathering tons of new fans, called "Kimbits."
Tonight, the show's third season premieres on CBC. Liu joins Tom Power live in the q studio to tell us what we can expect, how his real-life relationship with his parents informs his father-son relationship on the show, and how he feels about the representation of Asian men on screen.
