About the novel PACHINKO
These series are based on the novel “Pachinko” an epic historical fiction novel about a Korean family that immigrates to Japan. It was published in 2017. It is one of the famous novels which was written by Min Jin Lee. The character-driven story features an ensemble of characters who encounter discrimination, stereotyping, and other aspects of the 20th-century Korean experience in Japan.
Pachinko Season-1, Episode-1
All the three-time periods are linked by the main protagonist, Sunja, whose life is chronicled in this series and she will appear as a child, teen, and elder. The older Sunja is portrayed by Oscar-winning Minary actress, Young Yuh-Jung. Sunja grew up in the 1910s, as Japan colonized Korea, the first episode exploring this hostile invasion. Sunja is one of the observant youth, one who wishes to help her family to prosper. She learns how to fish and befriends a local fisherman. The brutality of the Japanese police and the extreme poverty shows illustrates a struggle of a nation. All these memories haunt Sunja into old age.
In Sunja’s present, 1989, she is now a wise and old grandmother. The show seamlessly alternates between the two main timelines in “Chapter One”. The two timelines are one is about her childhood and the other is about her old age. The eighties focus on grandson Solomon Baek, an American-educated banker. This businessman is sent to Tokyo to close a deal with a stubborn Korean landowner. The journey allows Solomon a chance to reunite with his family. His father is Baek Mozasu owned a Pachinko Parlour (Japanese arcades), where the book’s name originates from. Solomon is different from his father’s expanding empire. The older Sunja recognizes that Solomon is ashamed of her father, she points out to her father and tells Solomon he would be safer back in America. There is something more threatening at play here, simmering below the surface. Episode one only hints at these grievances but corroboration a history of family conflict, which I am sure we shall uncover in due time.

The central theme of the series
This series mostly talks about different themes and tells about different things. This series tells that “Every choice changes us”, “Every sacrifice defines us”, and “Every generation connects us”.
“You and I, we have no family. No name, no dowry. Our only option is to take a man just as penniless. And then what? We can’t afford to live together. And if we had children we’d just be bringing them into the same miserable poverty. So what’s the point? Why bother dealing with marriage when we aren’t even entitled to any of its benefits? That’s how it is for us. That’s how it will always be for us.” -Bohkee
