The Goggler Podcast #156: Pachinko

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review the Apple TV Plus adaptation of Min Jin Lee’s Pachinko. They marvel over just how lush and immersive the production is. They swoon over Lee Min Ho’s glorious face. And even though it’s only March, they make a pretty solid case for why this might already be one of the best shows of the year.

Epic in scope and intimate in tone, the story begins with a forbidden love and crescendos into a sweeping saga that journeys between Korea, Japan. and America to tell an unforgettable story of war and peace, love and loss, triumph and reckoning.

Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Min Jin Lee, Pachinko was created by Soo Hugh, directed by Kogonada and Justin Chon, and stars Youn Yuh-jung, Lee Min-ho, Kim Min-ha, Jin Ha, Soji Arai, Jeong In-ji, Kaho Minami, Anna Sawai, and Jimmi Simpson.
