Apple TV+ have released the first trailer for ‘Pachinko,’ the much anticipated bilingual series making its global premiere with three episodes on March 25th.
Chronicling a Korean immigrant story over four generations and adapted from the New York Times best selling novel of the same name, the character-driven story told through three languages - Korean, Japanese and English - features an ensemble of characters who encounter racism, stereotyping, and other aspects of the 20th-century Korean experience of Japan.
Written and executive produced by Soo Hugh, the upcoming eight-part limited series teased below, will also be directed and produced by Kogonada and Justin Chon. Starring Soji Arai, Jin Ha, Inji Jeong, Minha Kim, Lee Minho, Kaho Minami, Steve Sanghyun Noh, Anna Sawai, Junwoo Han, Jung Eun-chae, Jimmi Simpson, Yu-na Jeon, and Academy Award-winning actress Youn Yuh Jung, Pachinko promises to be an unforgettable story, both epic in scope and intimate in tone.
Fun Fact: Director Kogonada not only makes beautiful films ('After Yang' being a personal recent favourite), the film-lover also creates some incredibly insightful video-essays on all aspects of his love of the art-form, viewable on his Vimeo channel.
Pachinko can now be pre-added to your Up Next queue.
