He added a longer statement about the cancellation of the show, adding: "It pains me that we will never see Jung figure out what he wants to do with his life. Most of all, it pains me that we will never see the Kims all together as a family, bidding farewell to the bodega that has defined their immigrant journey.

He concluded: "I feel we deserved better. I feel that you, our most amazing fans, deserved better... If Kim's Convenience can stand for anything, let it be that amazing things can happen when you open the gates and allow more diverse and authentic stories to be told."
