Takeuchi, Craig (October 6, 2016). "Vancouver's Andrea Bang hopes Kim's Convenience helps boost Asian Canadian representation". Georgia Straight. Retrieved November 28, 2017. wKim's Convenience has meant a lot to fans over the years, and its star Andrea Bang shares the same sentiment. Bang knew there was something special about the CBC Television series from the very first time she auditioned for Janet. "I remember reading the lines and memorizing them pretty quickly. I just find that for those type of auditions where it just goes into my mind right away, there's something that connects me to it without even trying to think too hard about it, and that's what happened with Janet," she told POPSUGAR. "When I was prepping, it was not as hard as other roles have been where it does take a bit more time to be like, 'Oh, where's the motivation?' Prepping for Janet, it came really easy.
Bang also felt a strong connection to the character from the get-go. "I remember seeing the description and it saying that they're looking for a Korean-Canadian person, and I was like, 'That's me!' and can do comedy, 'That's me," she shared. "That was a time too where I was like, 'Oh, I'm never going to get to play a lead role in anything,' and I kind of talked myself into being OK about that at the time — unless it was something that I wrote myself. So when that role came out, I was super excited." Of course, the incredible cast was just another bonus, adding, "It just had all the ingredients of everything that I wanted to be a part of."
