first_imgSimu Liu as Jung in “Kim’s Convenience” – Photo courtesy of CBC LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment First thing I think everyone is dying to know: When does season three of “Kim’s Convenience” begin?Season three comes out January of 2019. Usually we’re a fall premiere, but we got moved because one of Canada’s big shows just ended so there was some moving and shaking and they moved us from a 9:00 to an 8:00 time slot. Basically, it’s all good things. They’re moving us to a more favorable, more family-friendly time slot, and moving us into the winter when everyone is stuck at home anyways because Toronto winters are brutal and they’ll have no choice but to watch “Kim’s Convenience.”Is there anything you can tell us about season three? Facebook Advertisement “Generally, everything that’s sizable is already cast in L.A. So by the time it gets to Toronto, you’re auditioning for Desk Cop #3 or something — which was my first role,” Simu Liu says, before stopping himself. “Desk Cop #1, actually. Which was good!”But that was 2012. This is 2018, where Liu has been co-starring in the hit Canadian television “Kim’s Convenience” since 2016. Based on the 2011 play by Ins Choi, who also works behind the scenes of the TV adaptation, “Kim’s Convenience” hit Netflix in July to rave reviews. The New York Times praised it, Vulture called it the “ideal” pure sitcom. For Liu, playing the handsome and once-rebellious Jung has been a breakout role he’s still thrilled to talk about.Before answering fan questions, NBC Asian America spoke with Liu about his journey to “Kim’s Convenience,” how his mother’s 60th birthday led to a breakthrough in their relationship, and the role he wouldn’t say “no” to.

I remember being on set for the first season and every day being scared we were going to get fired. And I feel like we all, to some degree, felt that anxiety because we knew how important the show was and none of us wanted to let it down or let each other down. We were all just so concentrated on not sucking that I think it was sometimes hard to have fun. Login/Register With:last_img
