Author Min Jee Lee’s New York Times best-selling novel is debuting on the small screen. Premiering March 25, Pachinko tells the story of a Korean immigrant family across four generations as they live through war, occupation and colonialism.
Taking place from 1910 to 1989 in Korea, Japan and the U.S., the eight-episode Apple series stars Oscar-winning actress Yuh-Jung Youn as Suja (portrayed as a young girl by Yu-na Jeon and as a teen and young woman by Minha Kim), who grows up in poverty in a fishing village outside of Busan. After meeting a Japanese fish broker (Lee Minho), Suja leaves her homeland for a new life in Osaka.
Broadway actor Jin Ha plays Sunja’s grandson Solomon, a finance executive in New York who returns to Japan in hopes of brokering a land deal between a hotel and a stubborn Korean landowner. He reconnects with his grandmother and father (Soji Arai), who becomes rich by gambling on pachinko, a pinball-like Japanese arcade machine game.
