The new epic family saga, Pachinko, comes to Apple TV+ on Friday, March 25. The 8-episode series is based on Min Jin Lee’s New York Times bestselling novel, and chronicles a Korean immigrant family across four generations, from a small Korean fishing village to eventual emigration to Japan. It deals with the quest to survive and thrive through persecution, and often addresses the racism and stereotyping that was the Korean experience with the Japanese. Produced in three languages, Korean, Japanese, and English, it will premiere with the first three episodes on March 25, then release new episodes weekly. Read on to learn more about how to watch.
