The official trailer for the Apple original series ‘Pachinko’ has been unveiled.
Pachinko is the highly-anticipated global project of Apple produced in Korean, Japanese, and English. Based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Pachinko recounts the hopes and dreams of four generations of a Korean immigrant family. Starting with the forbidden love, the show chronicles the war and peace, love and parting, victory and judgment while traveling back and forth between Korea, Japan, and the States.
This eight-episode drama will release three episodes on March 25th on Apple TV, then release one episode every Friday until April 29th. Media Res produced the drama, while Korean-American Soo Hugh, who oversaw season one of the AMC anthology The Terror, penned the scripts. Pachinko, beginning in Korea in the early 1900s, is drawn through the eyes of a strong woman, Sun Ja, who overcomes all adversity. The plot then intersects with the story of Solomon, the grandson of Sun Ja, in the 1980s.
Kogonada will direct four episodes, including the pilot, and serve as an executive producer. Justin Chon will also direct four episodes, exec producing the ones he helms. Hugh will executive produce with Kogonada; Michael Ellenberg and Lindsey Springer for Media Res; Theresa Kang-Lowe for Blue Marble Pictures; and Richard Middleton. Media Res’ Dani Gorin will co-exec produce alongside David Kim and Sebastian Lee.
Lee Min Ho stars as Koh Hansu, Soji Arasi as Baek Mozasu, Jung Eun Chae as Kyung Hee, Jin Ha as Solomon, and Jimmi Simpson as Tom Andrew. Moreover, the series spans four generations, with the female lead “Sun Ja” played by Jun Yoo Na (childhood), Kim Min Ha (teenage), and Academy Award-winning actress Youn Yuh Jung (elder).
