Apple TV+ (Apple TV Plus) has confirmed the production of Season 2 of "Pachinko," which is receiving favorable reviews around the world.

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. "Pachinko," produced by Sue Vacation and based on a bestselling novel of the same name, unveiled the last episode 8 of season 1 on April 29, marking a spectacular finale.

"I'm indescribably happy to be able to continue this special story of a family with strong vitality," said Sue Hu, the organizer, screenwriter and executive producer of "Pachinko." I would like to thank Apple, Media Reds, and passionate fans for trusting and supporting the project. It's an honor to be able to continue working with the production crew, including amazing actors, he said, expressing his thoughts on the confirmation of the season 2 production.

Pachinko, which deals with themes that can be universally sympathized with the world from family, love, victory, fate, and overcoming, unravels the hopes and dreams of Korean immigrant families who left their hometown with an indomitable will for survival and prosperity. Starting in the early 1900s against the backdrop of Korea, the work is portrayed through the gaze of a strong woman, "Sunja," who overcomes all odds. In the last episode of season 1, the story of "Sunja" visiting "Isaac," who was arrested with the help of his young son, unfolded. This generation-long epic will also be produced in three languages, Korean, Japanese and English, in the new season.

"Pachinko" was written and directed by Su-hu (The Terror and The Killing). Director Kogonada directed and produced a total of four episodes, including one pilot episode, while former director Justin directed and produced four other episodes. It was produced by Media Reds, and Michael Ellenberg and Lindsey Springer of Media Reds were named executive producers. Blue Marble Pictures' Theresa Kang Rowe, Richard Middleton, David Kim and Sebastian Lee also participated as executive producers.

Academy Award-winning Yoon Yeo-jung plays "Sunja" in old age, Lee Min-ho as "Hansoo," Kim Min-ha as "Solomon," Anna Saway as "Naomi," Jung Eun-chae as "Kyung-hee" in youth, Jimi Simpson as "Yoseph" Han Jun as "Ashon," and So Ji-ho-ja as "Ko-Soo."
