“Pachinko” Gives First Glimpse At Emotional Journey Featuring Lee Min Ho, Kim Min Ha, And Youn Yuh Jung
The first stills from the upcoming Apple TV+ original series “Pachinko” have been released!
“Pachinko,” which features a large number of world-renowned actors, is a global project produced in English, Korean, and Japanese. Starting on March 25, an episode will be released on Apple TV+ every Friday until April 29 for a total of eight episodes. The show is based on Min Jin Lee’s best-selling book of the same name.
The story starts with a tale of forbidden love and depicts a chronicle of war and peace, love and separation, and victory and judgement across Korea, Japan, and the United States. The cast includes Lee Min Ho, Kim Min Ha, Youn Yuh Jung, Anna Sawai, Jung In Ji, Jin Ha, Soji Arai, Minami Kaho, Noh Sang Hyun, Han Jun Woo, Jung Eun Chae, Jimmi Simpson, Jeon Yoo Na, and more.
In the first still, Koh Hansu (Lee Min Ho) gazes affectionately at Sunja (Kim Min Ha), who has tears running down her cheeks.
The next still is of Youn Yuh Jung, who takes on the role of Sunja when she is older. She wears a light green sweater and turtleneck as she looks at something off to the side.
Another shot shows Koh Hansu wearing a lavish white suit and top hat. Many people can be seen waiting in line for something as he looks far out into the distance.
Soo Hugh, the executive producer and main scriptwriter, said, “Some productions can deeply change the innermost depths of a filmmaker and person. There is no doubt that ‘Pachinko’ is a project that changed me. This is a story and tribute to my ancestors. It is also a story that is dedicated to all the ‘pioneers’ that exist in our family history. It is an honor to materialize this project with dedicated and talented actors and staff.”
The first episode of “Pachinko” will air on March 25.
