Pachinko: What’s the show about?

Pachinko based on 2017’s best novel follows a Korean immigrant family across four generations on their journey to find a brighter future.

Beginning in the early 1900s, the tale is told from the perspective of Sunja, the family’s matriarch and follows them through war-torn Korea, heartbreak and success in Japan, and eventual assimilation in America.

The story is told through the lives of Zainichi Koreans, or ethnic Koreans who came to Japan during Japanese colonial rule of Korea, and their descendants. As these groups faced discrimination and marginalization, they created their own sense of identity and community.

The first season of Pachino is available to stream on AppleTV+ and the season finale will hit the platform on April 29th.
