Pachinko is about to take over television as it premieres on Apple TV+. Based on the New York Times bestseller, this sweeping saga chronicles the hopes and dreams of a Korean immigrant family across four generations as they leave their homeland in an indomitable quest to survive and thrive.

Recalling Director Bong Joon Ho’s words during his Academy Award acceptance speech: “Once you overcome the one inch tall barrier of subtitles you will be introduced to so many more amazing films,” this new Korean drama lives up to those words and more. The story starts in a poor fishing village in 1915, when Korea was under Japanese occupation, and goes through to the polished world of high finance in Tokyo and New York in 1989. That saga is delivered with such artistry and imagination thanks to the passionate work of the star studded cast, the elegance of the time-shifting narrative and the show’s astonishing visual beauty that Pachinko is poised to surpass any other current series and you can be sure it will be the talk of the town.

The the creme de la creme cast, Min-ha Kim, Yuh-jung Youn, Soji Arai, Jin Ha and Lee Min-ho, joined Directors Kogonada and Justin Chon at the Los Angeles premiere on March 16th to celebrate the release of this epic book adaptation.

Pachinko premieres on Apple TV+ March 25th.
