Pachinko review – Apple TV+ adaptation of Min Jin Lee’s novel is simply stunning
Apple TV+ have been on a real roll lately, creating much of the most exciting content to be coming out of the streaming world.
If you don’t believe me, take a look at the stunning Ben Stiller sci-fi thriller, Severance, or Samuel L Jackson in The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey.
Well, as you will see from the review above, Pachinko is certainly no exception – indeed it may have even surpassed the last two shows with its truly epic scale that has taken the lines between cinema and television and blurred them well and truly.

What is Pachinko about?
An adaptation of Min Jin Lee’s New York Times best selling novel of the same name, Pachinko is the fascinating and beautifully crafted story of four generations of a Korean family as their lives change and evolve. The story begins with Sunja living in Japanese occupied Korea in the 1910s, and it is her story that is at the heart of this show – however, we don’t just see her, we meet her children and her grandchildren as the family move from Korea across continents, they grow and they prosper.
This is a story of hardship, of oppression and a story of the will to survive and to find ways to survive.
