A new trailer for the upcoming drama “Pachinko” has been released!
“Pachinko,” which features a large number of world-renowned actors, is a global project produced in English, Korean, and Japanese. Starting on March 25, an episode will be released on Apple TV+ every Friday until April 29 for a total of eight episodes. The show is based on Min Jin Lee’s best-selling book of the same name.
The story starts with a tale of forbidden love and depicts a chronicle of war and peace, love and separation, and victory and judgement across Korea, Japan, and the United States. The cast includes Lee Min Ho playing the role of Hansu, Kim Min Ha as the role of Sunja in her teens, Youn Yuh Jung as the role of Sunja when she is older, Soji Arai as Mozasu, Jin Ha as Solomon, Jung In Ji as Yangjin, Minami Kaho as Etsuko, Noh Sang Hyun as Isak, Anna Sawai as Naomi, Han Jun Woo as Yoseb, Jung Eun Chae as Kyunghee, Jimmi Simpson as Tom Andrews, Jeon Yoo Na as the role of Sunja when she is a child, and more.
The beginning of the trailer shows Sunja’s birth, childhood, life as a teenager, and current life as an old woman. The difference in her lifestyles from when she was young to when she is older is illustrated through shots of her carrying a basket on her head and cooking with a gamasot (traditional cauldron) as a child to her older self opening a modern rice cooker.
Brief clips of the people Sunja encounters throughout her life flash by. Another scene depicts Sunja as an elderly woman sitting next to another bedridden woman. The old lady in the voiceover asks, “Have you ever thought about what your life would be like if you chose differently?” as the screen shows Hansu encountering Sunja as a teenager. The trailer shows the many experiences and hardships the characters go through as they live their lives. Parallels between the past and the present are drawn as the characters experience the euphoric highs and the devastating lows of life.
