Adapted from a best-selling novel, this acclaimed series chronicles a Korean family across multiple generations. It’s brought to life by way of an exhilarating visual palette, rich characters, and intensely dramatic themes, but if there’s one thing to say about Pachinko, it’s that nothing comes close. Much like Min Jin Lee’s 2017 epic novel, the Apple TV+ show takes a journey through colonial Korea, chronicling the impact of the Second World War, along with the allied occupation of Japan and the Korean war. Tackling a premise rarely seen in cinema, particularly for Western audiences, Pachinko tells the harrowing tale of those Korean families forced to leave their homeland under colonial rule and start again in a foreign land. It’s an incredible watch that is as visually breathtaking as it is expertly crafted. Best of all, season two is currently in development.
