The streaming service AppleTV continues to increase the number of its own movies in the media library and follows the path of Netflix, ordering novelties in different countries around the world. We recently learned that AppleTV is preparing for the release of another Korean series, Pachinko, based on the novel of the same name by writer Lee Min-Jin. This is an American author with Korean roots who told the saga of the forbidden love of immigrants unfolding in America, Korea, and Japan. The literary source became a bestseller, which was the reason for its adaptation. The book was praised by critics in different countries, and the series is expected to be an accurate retelling of the story. The release date of series Pachinko is set for March 25, 2022. The first season consists of 8 episodes.
SEEN! @AppleTV’s Pachinko will give you heartbreak, grant you hope and, above all, gift you life.

According to the plot, the story will unfold around a girl named Suja. She escaped from Korea to Japan. Coming from a poor family, the heroine found herself in the new country in a difficult situation, which is also complicated by her origins. Korea and Japan have never boasted a good relationship, which caused the Japanese to dislike Koreans and vice versa. The heroine constantly faces dislike, but by chance, she meets Hansu. He is also Korean, but his family has been living in Japan for many years and was able to achieve a prominent position. For unknown reasons, the guy who decides to help the girl, and how it will turn out, will be shown in the novelty of AppleTV. The show’s release date is March 25, 2022.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The plot in Pachinko’s book unfolds over several decades and shows four generations of Korean immigrants struggling to find their place in a world where they are not welcome. The adaptation was directed by Soo Hue, who said the series had influenced him greatly and opened his eyes to the situation of Korean and Japanese immigrants in foreign countries.
