Trailer for Apple TV+’s 4-Generation-Korean-Saga PACHINKO With Lee Min-ho

Apple TV+’s four-generation-Korean-saga Pachinko, starring Korean superstar Lee Min-ho, has an official trailer which showcases filming in greater Vancouver.

In the early 1900s, teenaged Sunja (Kim Min-ha) the adored daughter of a crippled fisherman, falls for a wealthy stranger Koh Hansu (Lee Min-ho) at the seashore near her home in Korea. He promises her the world, but when she discovers she is pregnant–and that her lover is married–she refuses to be bought. Instead, she accepts an offer of marriage from a gentle, sickly minister passing through on his way to Japan. But her decision to abandon her home, and to reject her son’s powerful father, sets off a dramatic saga that will echo down through the generations.

Lee Min-ho is Koh Hansu, a wealthy fishbroker with ties to organized crime who embarks on an illicit romance with far-reaching consequences.

Hansu (Lee Min-ho) in fishing village of Yeongdo, a ferry ride from Busan. Played in the series by Steveston south of Vancouver.

Yeongdo is where Hansu pursues the young Sunja (Kim Min-ha) who becomes pregnant. It is only then that Hansu reveals he is already married and only wants Sunja as his mistress.
