I think one of the themes in Kim's Convenience (K.C) is People want a legacy after their gone; we want to be remembered when we’re gone. It's known that we all die, that's not surprising. But before most people go, they want to do something memorable. Something to last a life time. A legacy. And that's Kim wants, he wants his store to become his legacy.
