Beginning of a third season at “La table de Kim”

Around tasty dishes, in the simplicity and kindness, Kim Thùy receives Kim’s table 18 personalities from different horizons, to talk about friendship, freedom and dreams to be realized.

In an interview with the QMI Agency, the author confided that she began this third season with more confidence and comfort in wearing the host’s hat. And that’s partly thanks to the team around her, for whom she feels a lot of recognition and pride.

In the first episode of the season, shot this summer, Kim and his guests (David Goudreault, Dr. Martin Juneau and Marie-Nicole Lemieux) tackle the theme of the inexplicable, in particular the broken heart syndrome, a very strong emotional shock. , whether positive or negative, which causes a temporary deformation of the heart which can lead to cardiac arrest.

The following episodes will give way to the themes of benevolence, friendship, dreams, being free and time.

Lepage and Laurent Turcot, to name a few.

For the author, each guest brings a color and each table is unique.

“After each shoot, I tell myself that it was the best table and when the episodes come back edited, I say to myself: ‘oh no, he was the best episode,’” she said, laughing.

“That’s what’s magic about this show!” It’s because people are so different and they don’t necessarily know each other, but we still manage to have great discussions and experience a moment of grace, ”she confided.

The guests are also always designed according to the theme, but also their differences (cultural, generational, background and experiences), to have different angles.

Due to the pandemic, filming that had been moved to Kim’s neighbor pastry chef for the second season continued there. “The counter arranged allows us to sit down the four and respect the two meters. And it’s also better for the cameras and the technical team, ”explained Kim Thùy.

“As we had already planned everything during the shooting of season two, there were no surprises for us this season, we were already installed and we knew how to move to respect the sanitary measures”, she added. .

Another novel to come?

In terms of literature, Kim Thùy says she is watching and letting things come to her to possibly write another novel, but she is not ready to drop anchor on paper, however. She rather intends to leave Em, a story that lived in him for four years, still shine a little, especially in Europe and the United States, before embarking on a new adventure.

Em came out a year and a few months ago, but for me it’s still recent. And it’s like a breakup: you have to wait a little longer before diving back into something new, ”she said with a smile on her lips.

While the film adaptation of Ru, her first novel, is still in the pre-production stage.

The show Kim’s table, produced by KOTV and directed by Isabelle Garneau and Marie Carpentier, is presented as of Friday, January 14, at 10 p.m., on ICI ARTV.
