Apple TV+ Original Drama Series “Pachinko” to Premiere on March 25
Apple has just announced that the highly anticipated Apple TV+ original drama series “Pachinko” will make its global debut on March 25, 2022. Apple has also unveiled a first look at the series, which will be told in Korean, Japanese, and English.
Starring Lee Minho and Minha Kim, the series is based on The New York Times best-selling acclaimed novel of the same name. The story begins with forbidden love and crescendos into a sweeping saga that journeys between Korea, Japan, and America to tell an unforgettable story of war and peace.
“Pachinko” is written and executive produced by Soo Hugh (“The Terror,” “The Killing”), who created the series and serves as showrunner. Kogonada and Justin Chon are the show’s executive producers.
“They say there are those projects that come along and change the very core of who you are as a filmmaker and a person. Undoubtedly, ‘Pachinko’ is that project for me,” said Soo Hugh. “Not only is this a story of my forebears, it’s my tribute to them — to all of the Sunjas buried deep in all of our family’s history. It’s been an incredible honor to bring this series to life with this dedicated and gifted cast and crew.”
Pachinko will debut exclusively on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes followed by new weekly installments each Friday during its eight-episode season through April 29, 2022.
