Apple Sets Premiere Date and Shares First-Look Images of International Series ‘Pachinko’

Apple TV+ has unveiled first-look photographs for its new series Pachinko, which will launch in the United States on March 25 with the first three episodes. 

The eight-episode series’ subsequent segments will be released every Friday till April 29.

Pachinko is the first big trilingual US series, based on Min Jin Lee’s best-selling novel of the same name. The sweeping epic told in Korean, Japanese, and English, follows a single Korean family as it survives and persists from pre-World War II Japanese captivity through the 1980s financial boom in the United States and Japan.

The program will be the first project from former WME partner Theresa Kang-Blue Lowe’s Marble Pictures, and it will star Oscar-winner Youn Yuh-Jung (Minari), Korean icon Lee Min-ho, and Broadway veteran Jin Ha, who has previously appeared in FX on Hulu’s Devs and HBO Max’s Love Life.

Soo Hugh (The Terror, Apple’s See) adapted and acts as showrunner for the novel, which was a National Book Award nominee in 2017. Hugh and Kang-Lowe are executive producers, as are Media Res’ Michael Ellenberg and Lindsey Springer, as well as filmmakers Kogonada and Justin Chon, who each directed four episodes.
