The Korean story contained by Apple TV+ original series "Pachinko" captivated the world. Pachinko, which depicts the painful history of our people and the lives of Zainichi (Korean or Korean living in Japan) families who have been living silently after the Japanese colonial period, cuts down and captures the pointed stories that heat our hearts. The sincerity contained in it is more touching.

Pachinko, which warmly captures a huge scale narrative, is a story that begins with forbidden love and depicts an unforgettable chronicle of war, peace, love and separation, victory and judgment between Korea, Japan, and the United States. The drama set in Japanese colonial era depicts the fierce lives of Koreans suffering under Japanese oppression and Koreans who moved to Japan to live. The hearts of Koreans who moved to Japan and lived their lives in that era are full of parents' hearts to make their children live properly even in pain.

"Pachinko" does not explicitly contain the atrocities committed by Japan against Koreans during the Japanese colonial period. At that time, the focus was on the lives of the people who lived in that era rather than the looting of the Japanese, so it was contained calmly in a way.

However, he also drew historical facts such as Japan's exploitation of rice, forced labor, and the massacre of the Great Kanto Earthquake in the second half. Despite the fact that it was portrayed as a reason, some Japanese netizens are pouring out false claims that it is an "anti-Japanese drama that distorted history." He seems to be ashamed of the past mistakes his country has made, but some people seem to insist that it is a lie because they do not want to admit it.

Pachinko is not a K-drama. It is an American drama directed by a Korean-American director of a novel written by a Korean-American writer with capital from an American company. Unlike dramas that feature the Japanese colonial era made in Korea, the story was drawn based on objective and historical background. Rather, "Pachinko" has more power in that regard.

"Pachinko" does not openly depict the story of forced mobilization of Korean Japanese Military Sexual Slavery in Japan. In a recently released episode, Sun-ja (Yoon Yeo-jung), who left Korea as a teenager and returned to Korea after 60 years, met Bok-hee (Kim Young-ok), who worked at Sun-ja's boarding house in the past, while visiting her parents' graves. Bok-hee briefly told Seon-ja the story of the past 60 years at her house.

Bok-hee, who raises two puppies alone, calmly tells the story of going to Manchuria after hearing that she would let her work in the past, that she did not meet the mother of a fairy when she returned, that she was rather fortunate, and that her brother, who went with her, returned to his hometown and ended his life. In front of Bok-hee's face, which conveys his life in a calm voice, suggesting that he was mobilized as a Japanese soldier Japanese Military Sexual Slavery and returned, viewers think and suffer about the life of the woman who lived such a life beyond anger at the naked abuse committed by the Japanese army.
