The novel is described as epic in scope, story begins with a forbidden romance and crescendos into a sweeping saga that journeys between Korean, Japan and America. The book garnered multiple praises from critics and was named as one of New York Times‘ 10 Best Books of 2017.

The international drama series is produced by Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res, the studio behind Apple’s upcoming morning show drama that stars Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston. The Pachinko series is written by Soo Hugh (The Terror, The Whispers) who will also be the series’ showrunner and executive producer alongside Lee.

“History is the record of human imagination, will and decisions. I cannot imagine a greater team than the women and men of Apple, Media Res, William Morris Entertainment and the brilliant showrunner, Soo Hugh, to translate Pachinko, a novel of history, into a visual story for a global audience,” Lee told the outlet “I am honored by their faith and feel confident of their powerful and ground-breaking vision in making history anew.”

Pachinko is said to have a big premium budget allotted for the show’s production that is similar to Netflix’s The Crown. The drama is expected to be told in three different languages: Korean, Japanese and English.
